Here are some images from our second day enjoying Sedona, Arizona. Oh, how I love those red rocks! The views were absolutely stunning, and it’s tough to really capture it in a photo alone. I hadn’t been feeling that great in the middle of our trip, but this day, I was feeling much better and able to explore. We drove around making stops at different locations for photos, and then walked a little on the West Fork at Oak Creek trail which was a lot of fun. I really hope to go back to Sedona when I’m back to my athletic self and can really take it all in!
Tonight I’m headed out with the girls for a little mani/pedi action. I usually do my own nails, but the belly is starting to get in the way making it impossible to paint my toes these days. Oh darn, I guess I have to pamper myself! Looking forward to hanging with the ladies.
Tomorrow I am participating in the Wall Street Heart Walk with my Alpha Phi sorority Alums in NYC. Did you know that heart disease is the leading killer in America? There’s one more day to donate, so if you are able to contribute, I would really appreciate it!
My long time bestie, Meg, owns a house on the water in Pasadena, MD and I could not resist the opportunity for a photo op on this sunny day. During my holiday break, Meg and I spent the night before making homemade pizza with friends and dancing the night away in Baltimore for another friend’s birthday. The hubs and I stayed the night at her house, and we woke up in the morning to this beautiful view. Thanks for having us Meg; we love you!
Me with my bestie, Meg

Don’t you just love this cute little fox? I had to have this adorable sweater, even though they didn’t have my size. A nice British tourist in the store convinced me that it would might “look cute a bit baggy,” and that was all I needed to hear before swooping it up.
My holiday break has been fantastic. I can’t believe we have survived the “end of the world,” had an amazing Christmas, a fabulous family wedding, and that we are now into 2013. Big thanks to my boss for giving me one more day off today to get my life together in NYC before going back to the office. Here’s to unpacking, organization, and a work out for today to kick off the new year. And if I get everything done today, then maybe I will treat myself to a little Les Mis tonight? We shall see.
This past weekend, I headed back down to Maryland for my cousin, Alex’s, bridal shower! The hubs and I headed down on Friday night and stayed with our other cousins, Marisa (Alex’s sister) and Brian at their house back in the woods of Annapolis. They recently built a fire pit in their backyard, and with all the beautiful foliage, I thought it created a beautiful backdrop.
I have been wanting to wear the new casual chambray button down that I purchased, and decided to pair it with this ivory tulle skirt and ivory sheer tights to give it a more romantic and dressy feel for the bridal shower. These booties were actually a gift from my Mom, who had originally purchased them for herself and decided she didn’t think she could rock them. I gladly took them off her hands. 🙂 Thanks Mom!
Speaking of my Mom…my Mom & Dad are celebrating their Golden Anniversary today! 29 years on the 29th! I am so happy for them, and I wish them an amazing day with many more happy years to come! Love you.
And in other news…we are hunkered down in our Brooklyn abode staying safe from Hurricane Sandy. I haven’t seen too much rain, but there is definitely a lot of wind. We are prepared in case the power goes out (but I am hoping that it doesn’t.) I have seen tons of pictures of the wrath of Sandy and all the flooding caused so far. Hope everyone on the East Coast is staying safe!
