Irene has yet to wreak havoc on New York living (knock on wood).  There was still plenty of brunch to be had this morning…

 

Egg white omelet with spinach, mushrooms, and goat cheese
Mixed greens and homefries

And tasty summer treats…

 

Seriously now, I don’t care how rainy or windy it is out there; it’s always time for an ice pop.
Lime. Is. The. Best.

Watching silly chick flicks…

 

I have a total girl crush on Anna Faris

Brain candy…

 

The antics of Stephanie and Lula are always entertaining

AND…

Spending a whole weekend cuddling up to this guy…

Remember back in January when I swore off dating for the rest of my life?

Many of you predicted that despite my declaration of perpetual, self-inflicted spinsterhood I would probably change my mind.  Well, you were right.

I’ve been keeping a wee bit of a secret from the blogosphere: I have a boyfriend.

I’m always nervous about announcing these things on the Internet, but this fella is pretty special and makes me all sorts of giddy on a regular basis.  Since he happens to be taking up a pretty big portion of my life lately I figured it was about time to come clean about his existence.  Maybe, if I’m lucky he’ll grace the blog with a guest post one of these days (he doesn’t know I’m volunteering him, but I think I can be persuasive 🙂 ). He happens to be extremely versed in the health and fitness world, holding degrees in exercise physiology with an emphasis in kinesiology and nutrition.  I snagged myself a hunky know-it-all!

 

I’m riding out Hurricane Irene in style: ice pops, movies, trashy novels and a healthy dose of cuddling.  What’s making you happy this weekend?
