So, in my second post of the day (whaaaaaaaaaat?) I thought I’d do a little weekend catchup with y’all. Don’t worry! It’s nothing too thought-intensive, just a report for posterity’s sake, hehe.

So, last night my friend Reema and I went to our friend Lizzie’s birthday party together at her apartment in Arlington. It was a peacock-themed cocktail party, and it was fabulous!


Lizzie looked gorgeous, of course, and we had a good time chatting, eating Georgetown Cupcakes (omg yum!), and catching up! It’s always nice to have a girly night out – I don’t have enough of them, that’s for sure! So if any of you local ladies are ever in the mood for some classy girly time, let me know! I’m always game for an excuse to put on a dress. 🙂

So, today I woke up for a very special little photoshoot. First, you need some backstory though. You see, a couple of weeks ago, I opened my Gmail inbox and found an email from Leslie Poster, a reporter for the Falls Church News-Press. It seemed that my obsession with Falls Church had finally caught their attention, and the FCNP wanted to interview me for an article! After the customary leaping around the room in excitement, we scheduled my phone interview for the day I got back to FC after vacation!!

The article is set to run in Thursday’s issue, so if you’re in Northern Virginia you should definitely pick one up! It will also be posted online, so as soon as its up you better believe there shall be linkage. 🙂 Anyway, back up to how this excitement relates to today, Leslie contacted me a few days ago asking if they could do a little photoshoot for the article as well – pictures of me blogging, cooking, etc. So that’s what this morning entailed! I’m super excited that Honey, I Shrunk the Gretchen! is starting to get some attention – who knew!? Although, it is starting to make me a smidge wary now that potentially a lot more people are reading than I thought… you guys’ll let me know if I’m starting to sound like an airhead though, right? …right? 😛

Anyway, that’s the news for this lazy Sunday. Weigh-in tomorrow – EEEEEK. I am freaking out. I have been steadfastly avoiding the scale since I got back from vacation. Guess I have to face the music eventually though… think positive thoughts for me, pls?


  1. That’s so exciting! Can’t wait to see the article 🙂

  2. You should scan the newspaper article and post it in your blog for all us non-Virginia people. I want to read it!

    • It’s supposed to come out online as well as in the paper tomorrow! I’ll definitely be posting the link, so check back!! 🙂
