I read because I must. It's like breathing to me. And I love talking about books. But I'm also an Arsenal fan, a wine drinker, a music lover and weirdly obsessed with pop culture. I mostly blog about books, but sometimes about things I'm thinking or doing. When I'm not on the blog, I'm scoping deals for a professional services company, hanging out with friends, or seeing some live theater.

Thursday Night, That Mexican Restaurant by the Kroger

Tuesday at Taco Mac- The Impromptu GNO

A and I used to be roommates.  She’s married now, and lives near my office.  Tuesday afternoon she IM’d me to ask if I could meet for dinner. Her husband was out of town, and she and the baby were feeling a bit cooped up. I typically love an impromptu dinner out, so of course […]

The Many Varieties of a Girls Night Out

In my twenties, GNOs were all about going out to some bar, dancing, drinking, and flirting, and having a good time.  In my thirties, they’ve taken on more significance. There’s still the nights we plan so we can blow off steam. No husbands or boyfriends, no kids.  Dressing in something cute, blocking the night on […]

Girls Night Out

I had three different Girls Night’s this week, with seven different girl friends.   A random comment at Thursday’s “Mexican and Margaritas night” made me think about this. I’m more different than alike with many of the friends I met for dinner this week, yet there’s something unique to each relationship.  I get something out […]
