Oopsie…I missed a couple days again. I’ll make up for it today!! 🙂 As I mentioned in my Eze post, while my mom and I town-hopped the French Riviera, our home base was in Nice. I had had a hard time choosing between Nice and Cannes as our Riviera home base during the trip planning stages, but in the end, I had gone with Nice. … Continue reading Europe 5: Nice!
Oopsie…I missed a day! I have a great excuse though– I was busy at a GenU event! (GenU is the “young working professionals” group of United Way.) So last I left off, we had boarded the overnight train to Nice! BUT WAIT. I forgot one of THE funniest moments of the ENTIRE trip. I will cherish these pictures forever: What is going on here, you … Continue reading Europe 4: Eze!
How’s that for a confusing title 🙂 On our second day in Paris, my mom and I had two goals– go to the top of the Eiffel Tower & also to the top of Le Sacre Coeur. Beyond that, we were open to anything, since we had seen most of the sites we wanted to see the day before. After a wrong trip on the … Continue reading Europe 3: Paris 2!
Our first European destination was Paris! We arrived at 9:30AM, after a pretty uneventful plane ride. I slept for most of it, and I believe my mom got some shut eye too. For dinner, she had some sort of chicken thing, and I had beef canolli– oops, I mean canneloni 🙂 I didn’t realize there was a difference until my mom corrected me. We hoped … Continue reading Europe 2: Paris!
It has been so long since my last blog post, that I literally forgot the website. I couldn’t remember if i was on Blogspot.com or WordPress or something else! Europe was a blast! As expected 🙂 Coming back to the May accounting close & second half of the year forecast deadline all in four days….has not been a blast. I’m absolutely slammed at work! (What’s … Continue reading Europe Recap Part 1!
After my fun Saturday with Mango, Sunday was even more fun! I ran errands in the morning, then got ready for Alix’s wedding! (If you’ve been reading this blog regularly, you probably have heard Alix’s name a lot. Alix and I interned at Intel together in the summer of 2010 and then both started back full-time in the same group! She is one of my … Continue reading Alix’s wedding!
Get ready for an inundation of blog posts today. I’m going to try & play catch up, before I leave for vacation in…13 hours and get behind again! This past Saturday was RESCUE’s annual “Cinco DOG Mayo” car wash. Although Sunny is always my top choice, I was super excited to have Mango. Mango is a 70+ lb pit bull mix who is vibrant goldey-red … Continue reading Mango!
Uff-dah! SO much going on right now! I know my Grandma was looking forward to hearing about my birthday activities, but I just have way too much on my plate right now to breathe, much less write a wonderful blog post (especially since I didn’t even have time to do anything exciting for my birthday), but the fact that I haven’t updated my blog with … Continue reading Birthday in a nutshell
This past Sunday, I got to take care of two dogs—Sunny and her buddy, Rory. I was a bit nervous about how it would go with two dogs at once, but as you’ll see, it went perfectly! First, Sunny and I spent the day doing some work with Israel (the Israeli workweek is Sun-Thurs), before doing more Europe research. She was very helpful: We made … Continue reading Sunny & Rory
Circa 8th grade, my mom got sucked into an informercial and bought the “Windsor Pilates” DVD’s. I remember spending one summer determined to figure out what all of the hype was about. I was going to become a pilates professional. By day two I had quit. How the heck was I supposed to be focused on breathing rhythmically while moving my limbs at a quicker … Continue reading Pilates
