NantucketA few months ago, I got this crazy desire out of nowhere to go to Nantucket, Massachusetts. Kieran has been calling it my quarter-life crisis. If this really is my quarter-life crisis, I’ll take it.

That said, I am thrilled to say we booked a Nantucket trip for late next month! I think a few days of being 30 miles at sea will be out of this world. Read the rest of this entry »


New Year's Eve DressIn an effort to be a little more frugal, I have barely bought any clothing items since…wait for it…August! Okay, with the exception of a pair of flats and a New Year’s Eve dress (thanks, as always, ModCloth). I needed the flats for work, and New Year’s Eve is my favorite holiday. It deserved some sparkles!

It has not been an easy task to say the least, but it has been beneficial for my wallet. As much as I have been complaining about being so bored with all my clothes, do I really need another shirt or dress? No. I’m trying to get a bit better about wants versus needs. Plus, because of this, I’ve paid a bit extra (key word: bit) on my student loans, and we’re planning a Nantucket trip for the summer! More on that to come, I hope.

The older I get, the more I realize I value memories and experiences much more than things. Who needs the clutter anyway? I wonder how long I can keep this no clothing rule up! It’s not easy.

P.S. For dinner tonight, I made this whole grain skillet cornbread one more time this season before the weather gets too warm. Do yourself a favor and make it as soon as possible.
