Wordless Wednesday: Costa Rica Dreaming

It’s been a little over a week since I was in sunny Costa Rica, relaxing in the hot baths, sunning myself on the beach, ziplining and rappelling. So for today’s Wordless Wednesday, I’m reminiscing … and sharing some vacation photos. #SorryImNotSorry

Wordless Wednesday – Infographic: 10 Rad Jobs of the Future

About a year ago I saw an article called 10 Job Disappearing from America. It was kind of a sad article, and I felt a little bad as I read about all the positions – copper workers, leather workers, sewing machine operators, postal service employees (poor Cliff Clavin:() and so on. That’s why when I saw this infographic this week, I had to share. Much more upbeat – take a look at all the jobs of the future. SO exciting! (and slightly silly. Memory Manipulator? hehe)

Wordless Wednesday: Christmas Music

I’m officially on winter vacation! Despite a few loose ends from work I’m tying up, I’m back home in New York trying to work as little as possible, spend as much time with family and friends, and get into the holiday spirit. To help get in the mood for Christmas (while it’s 40 degrees out), I’m sharing some of my favorite holiday tunes for today’s (semi)Wordless Wednesday post. Warning – these may not be the traditional tunes you listen to year in and out. A playlist with a few of these songs, and some more, can be found here.

All I Want for Christmas Is You (Love Actually version … my favorite!)

One of my favorites from The Nutcracker – Pas De Deux  

Michael Buble – Baby Please Come Home

Last Christmas (The Glee version … only version worth listening to in my opinion)

Straight No Chaser – 12 Days of Christmas

Blues Traveler – Christmas

Transiberian Orchestra – Christmas Eve in Sarajevo (Carol of the Bells) (one of B’s favorite Christmas songs)

March of the Wooden Soldiers (from one of my dad’s favorite Christmas movies, Babes in Toyland)

Baby It’s Cold Outside (Colbie Caillat and Gavin DeGraw) 

It Feels Like Christmas (from the Muppet Christmas Carol)

The Chieftains – Il Est Ne (we would listen to this album each year when putting up our tree…  I swear hearing this song makes me smell pine needles!)

Weezer – We Wish You a Merry Christmas

Wordless Wednesday: Words to Love

My friend from high school, Lauren, has a blog that I read every so often. Yesterday, she introduced me to Dallas Clayton – and I instantly became enamored with his words, poetry, artwork, and messages. So for today, I leave you with some words to live by and words to love, from Dallas Clayton himself. Hey, we all need a little advice from children’s books sometimes.

 

Wordless Wednesday: Girls’ Weekend Edition

I’m back from an amazing girls weekend in DC! I had such a good time laughing, drinking wine, eating, gossiping, and exploring the area with Jane and Melgar. Instead of a wrap up post  — where I’d share with you details of our Friday night wine and Mediterranean dinner, Saturday run and excursion to old Alexandria, pedicure and dinner with Steve & Emily at an awesome Vietnamese place — here’s a photo collage.

TGIW!
