in all her glory…

Is it just Riley, or do all dogs get really really excited about a new toy? 

So much so that they scurry into a corner so they can have it all to themselves… sometimes until they rip it to shreds and the stuffing comes flying out within 5 minutes. Fortunately for this over-sized toy, Riley remained cool, calm and collected and failed to rip its guts out.

Side note:  I’m obsessed to a slightly unhealthy degree, I know.

STK out

It’s no Shake Shack, but the truffle fries and birthday cake shake were pretty damn good.  It’s worrisome that this place is directly across the street from my office…

it’s a miracle…

I have never seen our wine rack so full… let alone holding more than 1 bottle at a time.

On my walk home from work yesterday, I received an email from Mike:



Yes, please!!

My first game of the Yankees baseball season was perfection… amazing seats, amazing hotdog, ice cold Bud Light in amazing souvenir cups, amazing closing by Mariano, amazing win against the Minnesota Twins.

Classiques Entier ‘Riley’ Pump

Is it bad that I feel like I just have to have these because of a certain “Riley” in my life?

Joe Fresh flagship

I checked out the new Joe Fresh flagship earlier last week, which is conveniently located a block from my office, and I fell in love with so many affordable staples, all under $50.

I’ve put together some of my favorite pieces below, but my absolute favorite piece, that I of course had to pick up, was this orange and white striped top…  Great quality and only $24!
