Great Barrington

Every year for Joel’s birthday I take him to a different town or city to explore. This year, it was Great Barrington, MA.  It was great, indeed! We had a wonderful time, of course.

Did you know that my car’s name is Midnight Smoothilicious? True story. (Old photo, obviously – snow!)

From 2 to 4

You know how my new goal is to lose 2lbs per week? Yeah… so I GAINED 2lbs this past week. Now I have 4lbs to lose this week! Woops!  I’m not mad, either. I had an awesome time at the wedding and ate 2 cupcakes! We ate at a Brazilian place, and I made french… Read more »
