Did anyone else gain 10 lbs over hurricane weekend? Ok, maybe it was 5...ok 2 1/2.

Had an impromptu porch party with specialty "hurricane" cocktails and a live neighbor across the street loves to recreate his glory days at the Palladium, so he broke out the speakers and we had a little dance party.

We all agreed to hang the next day for brunch, so I woke up the next morning and baked a tray of cookies. When everyone flaked, I had no choice but to eat the entire batch myself.  They were good cookies.

Is summer really over? WTF?

With a forecast finally free of natural disasters, I was able to squeeze in one last beach day this weekend. Thank GOD!

Like a true Staten Islander I headed to the Jersey Shore, where we somehow managed to avoid beach traffic and Snooki sightings. Miraculous!

And in perfect post-Labor Day fashion, my company officially opens its office doors today. It's kind of like the first day of school again.

Like most kiddies, I dressed in my best and took a bus...and then a subway...and then a car. It's a friggin' pilgrimage to get to Greenpoint!

Once I'm there, it's pretty damn great.

The office is amazing, which makes it easier to digest the trip.

And the neighborhood is pretty industrial but on its way, which makes it pretty interesting to daylight hours.

Can't believe I'm starting this new job. I can't believe I get to write and be creative for a living. I can't believe I get to be part of growing a company from day one.

There's only a handful of us right now so it's pretty amazing to start at the very beginning and watch it all unfold.

I thought I would be nervous. Haven't been in an office environment in a loooong time. But I'm actually psyched.

Website should be up soon...can't wait to share all the progress we make.

This summer seemed shorter than ever, but it was pretty sweet. Here's hoping yours was too...and that the warm weather lingers and we get to enjoy some more sun before the blizzards start rolling in!



  1. I love that you had a hurricane dance party....You cookie monster! How's the second week in the office? We need to catch up!

  2. Busy busy busy, but all good! Still working on perfecting our website but once it's up we're anticipating a massive eruption of business. Stay tuned! Thanks for keeping up. Miss you and the kirb-ster and our friday fundays! xo
