I think it’s crazy scary that it’s already October. That means there are only 3 months of 2008 left (Yes, I’m good at math). 3 months?!? But it feels like 2008 just started! Luckily, in addition to the holidays, I have some pretty awesome things planned for the restof 2008. Actually, I’m just plain excited for lots of things that are coming up (some small and some bigger). There’s actually a lot more than this, but there’s always more time for that.
Tomorrow my new furniture arrives from Jordan’s. I am extremely excited for several reasons. First of all, my lovely Target furniture has been falling apart for a while now. Several drawers are completely ruined and not only does this make it look like I live in a huge mess, but I don’t have enough room for all my clothes. I’m sure my new furniture still won’t give me enough room (I have WAY too much stuff), but at least it will look pretty and be functional. Things I’m not looking forward to? Emptying my 2 old dressers and nightstand and bringing them out the the trash. Boo.
I really wanted to go to Blogher in San Fran this summer, but since I couldn’t quite afford it, I didn’t make the trip. So to hear that Blogher is going on tour and coming to Boston (well, Burlington really) on October 11, totally excited me. Obviously grabbed tickets (thanks to Trish Ryan for alerting me!) with Chels and Tarryn and we are psyched to meet new bloggers, go to the panels (there’s one on food blogs!), and learn tons of new stuff. Other Boston bloggers, you should really sign up for this. It’s going to be a fabulous time and only costs $100 for an entire day of blogging fun!
Chicago Visit Fall 08!
I was really sad when my sister and her fiance moved from Boston after living here for 4 months (they’re doing traveling PT). The only thing that made it brighter? They moved back to Chicago; one place I do not mind visiting at all. And We are not Martha will be visiting Chicago together at the end of October! I’m so excited to spend time with my sis and Adam, hang out with Jessi (and maybe other Chi bloggers??), eat sushi at Coast, and…wait for it…Chicago Cupcake Crawl Part 2!! Yes, my sister is planning part 2 of the cupcake crawl as she claims there are many new cupcake venues since the last time I visited. I’m not eating cupcakes until then. Yay!
I have a couple awesome cooking classes to look forward to in the coming months, both presents I got for my birthday. My mom got me a class with the amazing Chris Kimball, who also happens to be one of my culinary idols. He’s amazing (and his test kitchen is in Brookline!) and I cannot wait to see what he does. Also, Chels is taking me to a pasta making class at Stir! I’ve never been to their kitchen, but allegedly it’s small and beautiful and perfect for learning some new skills. Yess!
