An Open Letter to My Slutty Friend

Hey girl, how's it going? Haven't seen you in a while. I know we've both started the whole "we're too old to be dancing on tables and taking body shots" thing, but I was thinking about the good ol' days and was hoping you'd reminisce with me.

5 Mistakes We All Make When Dating a New Guy

As most of you know, I'm kind of a pro when it comes to dating (online, offline, coffee shop...you name it, I've been there and most likely done it).

A Love Letter to My iPad

I never knew what I was missing in life until I found you. The ease in which I can search for things, write scholarly articles, and watch reality TV amazes me.

The Weekly Ten: Laugh a Little

I bought a day-by-day calendar all about being assertive and basically saying "No, thank you" more (but without the 'thank you' part). And by "assertive," I mean it's filled with hysterical quotes about how it's okay to be super-bitchy, because we all have those day/moments/weeks/lifetimes...when we need to insert an extra NO! into one thing or another.

The Weekly Ten: Summer Fever

As a New Englander you would think I would be one of the many supporters of winter. After all, I used to figure skate and bring my inner tube to the Seven Hills, but somewhere (I blame junior year of college; not sure why) I turned. Maybe it was when I fell in love with all the wonderful things summer had to offer, maybe it was when winter started taking over half of the year.

The Weekly Ten: Best Movies for a Snugglefest

I know a thing or two about snuggling, mostly learned from John Stamos...but I digress. There is nothing more complimentary to a good snuggle then a great movie. So here are some movies that will have you jonesin' for another snow storm...

The Weekly Ten: Best Warm Winter Drinks

As someone with a strong addiction to anything hot and caffeinated (*cough* Ryan Gosling sipping coffee in his ch√Ęteau *cough*), I'm positive I have found the best combination of drinks to not only warm your hands, toes...all extremities, but also one that will make you feel cozy inside.

So, to put you on the path to resolution success here are ten ideas that will not only guarantee a positive outcome, but also make you feel a tad better about yourself. Plus, who can say that they actually followed through with their New Year's Resolution?

The Best Top Ten Lists You Read This Year

While we're looking back at all the wonderful moments (and the not so wonderful ones, i.e. that time you threw up in your new boyfriend's bed) here are a few articles that made my year just a smidgen better. I know for a fact after reading them you'll feel ten thousand times better about all of your not-so-great moments of 2011.

The Weekly Ten: Last Minute Gift Ideas

I love giving presents. I love the face people make when opening up the specifically picked gift, hearing the sounds of the wrapping paper tearing. I love the hugs and thank yous, the 'Oh my god! You totally shouldn't have (but I'm secretly really really glad you did)'s. However, I hate the process you need to take to get there.

The Weekly Ten: Reasons I HATE Snow

As a December baby (December 28th to be exact, yes I do now expect you to send me lots of presents) you would think I would be a fan of snow, or at least of winter. But I am not, and I will tell you why.

The Weekly Ten: Reasons Why I Don’t Want Kids

I'm not sure if I mentioned it before, but I'm currently a nanny to an adorable (when sleeping) four-month old baby boy. Before taking this job, two and half months ago, I thought I wanted kids. I now realize I do not want kids, at least not for a really really (huge emphasis on really here) long time.

The Weekly Ten: When Reality TV Was Amazing

Oh reality TV, how you have gotten me through many a rough patch in my life, many a break up, many a late night binge fest...really any low point in my life. I've been with you since the first Real World appeared on MTV, to the horrible escapades of a young Jessica Simpson, I've seen it all.

The Weekly Ten: Give Thanks

The food, the family, the parade, the mark of the beginning of Christmas...really what more could anyone ask for? But with all of these amazing things around us (and the promise of half-price shoes the next day) we sometimes forget what Thanksgiving is all about.

The Weekly Ten: My Christmas List

I am fully aware that Christmas isn't for another 4,394,668 seconds, but since every other store in the world is getting ready I figured I should start to compile my wish list. You know, in case anyone wants to buy me something other than socks. Grandma, I'm looking at you!

10 Life Lessons from Barbie

When I was 10 I used to lock myself in my room and play Barbie for hours. Sometimes it ended in drastic haircuts, other times marriages, but usually with someone's head being popped off. Although I had a lot of respect for a girl who could rock one of my many failed attempts at an early "Rachel," I had to admit I was a little jealous.

The Weekly Ten: Happy Halloween

As mentioned in previous posts, I love Halloween and everything about it. From being scared straight, to mocking the horrible fake blood in haunted houses, it's the most magical time of the year. Plus, it's the one time of year I can watch Halloweentown multiple times a day (which is exactly what I plan on doing today...judgement free zone).
