An un-post

I ran for over an hour after work and then walked the freedom trail home, so my idea of a grand post as to wait for another day!

The time and location is set for this Saturday and I can't wait!!! I will be meeting three new preppy bloggers and reuniting with two lovelies I haven't seen in over a year! 
If you're thinking why is Kimba getting so excited over this...well if you've been following you know how fabulous these outings are!!! And good blogging material also tends to proceed these events!


Shhhhh, the President is starting!!!

More Blogging Meet up Post

I'm going to be sending out an email tomorrow with details for our big Saturday get together!

I have most of your emails, but if you'd like to be added leave a comment with your email address and I'll add you.

Hope you all enjoy the Oscars tonight, though I haven't seen any of the movies I can't wait for it to start!

Cruddy day in Boston so in turn I have the cleanest house on the block! I went to TJ Maxx in Somerville to see if I could score some JCrew shoes, but of course I was a little late to the party. But I'll keep my eye out!

Dow Dow Dow

I took a screen shot of my company's stock this afternoon when it hit $2.81. When I started over three years ago it was at $56.00+ a share.
Well Dow you closed this week at 7200...its been a long short week. I'm looking forward to a upswing next week, got it? I'm just sayin'! 
Your biggest fan Kimba
Am I the only one who can't get enough of Bernie Madoff and the Ponzi Scheme? 

In happier news, we'd love to meet you next Saturday, leave a comment if you'd like to join! 

None of the above needs to be discussed! 

It's great to finally meet some of the gals you share your first cup of coffee with in the morning, your lunch with at your desk or maybe even that much needed glass of wine when the kids are in bed and you are able to sit down and catch up on bloglines!

Preppy Blogging Meet up

We’re still on for the preppy meet up on February 28th, and I hope you still are too!

I’d like to throw out two options for you local ladies and if you would leave your vote in the comments we can tally up the winner! Both options very are close to Boston, exact locations will be give out via email to those who can make it.

Preppy Option 1) Preppy E Potluck at our favorite ladybugs house! E has volunteered to host our meet up at chez ladybug! Each of us could bring a dish that we might typically bring to outings with our friend/family. Or I was thinking a “theme” but then the only theme I can think of is Mexican or something to do with March (green beer)? HA!

Preppy Option 2) Boston Preppy Drinks and Apps - If going into the city seems more what you’re looking for; I can find a restaurant that has parking relative close, the T and of course has a prep in it!

Don’t be shy let us know what you’d prefer! As I said either choice would have you very close to Boston. We hope everyone can make it, these events always are a grand time and the memories and stories make for excellent blogging material!

If you miss this meet up don’t worry, when the weather gets nicer we’ll plan a mid-week meet up for cocktails on the water! And i'll be hosting one in the spring where we can use our "outdoor space" as us city folks like to call it.

Big ole weekend

Thank you for all of your comments and email, it meant a lot!

I will get the heels on Tuesday!!! The only thing is for some reason the order says a size 9 narrow were shipped while this homegirl wears a 8 or 8 1/2 no narrow in this house. So I'm thinking they will be going back. But i'll try them on and will be able to tell how wonderful they are. But I know another pair in my size will be on it's way after that pair is returned! Unless there is someone out there that is a 9 narrow and would like them. I got them for $130! Hope you didn't think I paid full price for them, no way on earth would that fly in this house! Love your husband for that come end of the month ie credit card statement time!

I was thinking about what I did last year for Valentine's Day and it brought a smile to my face. The wonderful Libs and I met for a drink! Here is a little reminder!

I actually wore that jacket to work today, without even thinking I wore it last year on V-Day to work!

I'll have a recap for our Gala tomorrow night, should be so fun!!!!

Enjoy the weekend (hopefully it's a long one)!

Here I am

I hate when I go a week without blogging when I have things I could be blogging about. I can only post from home (or my phone) so it gets thrown by the wayside come 7pm when I walk in the door (that's on a good night)!

We had to go to Detroit this last weekend as MG's favorite Aunt passed away from cancer. It was a tough end to last week and a very sad weekend. But she is in heaven now and no longer suffering and in pain. Never easy though.

This week will fly by as Saturday Valentine's Day we (along with MG's parents, sister and BIL)are hosting a Valentine's Day Gala sponsored by his other sister's charity (whom passed away in 2000) We still have a lot of details to wrap up but it will be a fabulous evening with great food, drinks and a silent & live auction! I'll post a recap next week!

Emotional times indeed.

On a lighter note I purchased my first pair of Cole Haan Air Pump's! A few of you have blogged about how much you love them and I have been wanting to get a pair and finally did! I ordered them online so I sure hope they come soon! I can't wait!!!
Hope you have a good week!
