The New York Smiths

Well I think you all should know that after today I'll be a little MIA til next week. I might have time to put together a WTW tomorrow but no promises because I'm about to hit the skies and visit my bestie in LA!!!!!!!! It's 4th of July weekend this weekend and what better time to take a vacay, right? AND I'm going with Leigh and Nicole! Two fabulous and amazing friends of mine and we are going to hit the streets of LA, see the sights, meet some celebs (hopefully) and indulge in some much needed R&R. I might even get to meet The NY Smiths! The NY Smiths are Chris and Rebecca Smith from The Harvard Sailing Team.

Chivalry...is it dead? Part 2

Happy Thursday everyone. So last week was rather hellish at work so I didn't have time to post too much but I have been trying to write about this topic for over a week now so I figure I better get to it!  I have stumbled across some very interesting articles and blogs related to dating/sex/relationships recently and I think it's time I offer my 2 cents. But first - Part of what lead me to today's post is much more than just these articles and blogs. It has to do with what's going on in my own life and my friends' dating lives.

So, can I get real with you guys for a minute? (Always!) So over the last 8 years of my dating life I've definitely kissed a few frogs and have yet to find my prince.

WTW: This one's for my Roommate

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Most of you who know me, know that I am not really a pet person. It's not that I don't like animals - but I just never grew up around animals so I am not what one would normally call a "pet person". However, many of you also know that I currently live with a cat - my roommate's cat. And she's kind of a bitch, but tolerable. She acts more like a dog than a cat in some ways - which is good in my opinion - but she also has her typical Queen Bitch attitude that most other cats have as well. Thank God she's not a long-haired cat like Sassy from Homeward Bound. Those long-haired cats seem to act more entitled than the short-haired cats. Anyway, today's Watch This! Wednesday is for my roommate - who has a cat. Sometimes Briggs can be a real pesky pain in the ass. And today's WTW is an educational video about "How to Put the Spark Back in Your Relationshp With Your Cat":

Watch This! Wednesday - Tyler Herrin!!!!

Hey guys,

So today's WTW is not your typical stupid/funny video. This week I gotta give props to my good buddy Tyler Herrin!!! You remember Tyler, right? He's recently released his new album A Simple Necessary and it's kind of the shit. And he's kind of the shit. No? Don't believe me? Well, let me show you JUST how cool Tyler is. The video below is Tyler who got called up on stage at the BARE NAKED LADIES concert last Saturday!!! He got pulled up on stage to actually PLAY! With the BAND!! And this is not just some band for Tyler, it's like his all-time, inspired-him-to-learn-the-guitar-in-the-first-place, favorite band in the world!

Everybooodddaaayy went to the concert

So I didn't really have time to update on Friday but let me just tell you...the BSB concert was absolutely phenom. Not only were our seats less than 10 feet from the stage, but Brian totally looked right at me, smiled and waved. And holy hell, like a fine wine, they seem to get better with age. Brian's son introduced them and he is just about the cutest kid ever. They sang the classics, sang some new stuff, each did a video placement and it was nothing short of magical. I went with 6 of my girlfriends and we had an absolutely amazing time. It was like middle school all over again. And you'd be surprised how many people were at the concert! I mean, Chastain was PACKED. I guess because everyone around my age is still as fond of them as they were back in 1998.

Thank God BSB is tonight, otherwise Eff My Life

So...the day has arrived...the loves of my life are returning to the stage at Chastain Amphitheatre! That's right! Backstreet's Back Alright!!!!!!!!! And thank GOD for that. This morning on my way to work, my car completely died. Like, engine went kaput. I had to deal with AAA and Hertz and didn't get to work until an hour ago. I should probably NOT be blogging right now, but working instead, BUT I simply can't NOT acknowledge that the Backstreet Boys are coming to Atlanta tonight so here we sit. I'll make this short and sweet.

Watch This! Wednesday - HST is BACK

Ok so before I get started on this week's WTW, I have to share 2birds1blog with you. You remember a couple weeks ago when I threw back to 1996? K's Choice? Not an Addict? Ringing any bells? Well, part of my morning routine when I get to work is: Start up computer. Load office email. Load Internet Explorer. Click 2b1b from my igoogle. Read today's post while eating my breakfast and drinking coffee. And today I was BLOWN AWAY! Meggles threw back to middle school and DAMN did she hit some hot songs. Check that out here AFTER you read my WTW. Or before, I don't care. But it's worth reading if you were born between 1983 and 1986.

I have to remind myself it's only 10 months

This past Saturday marked a sad and hard day in the life of Blaire McBlogger. Yep, this past Saturday I had to say goodbye to a dear friend of mine, Sophia. She's headed for bigger and brighter things than this lowly city of Atlanta has to offer her. She's off to discover the west coast, and fashion school, and rub elbows with the likes of LC and Heidi, among others. And you better believe she will be missed. School starts in a little over a month for Soph, and I can wish her nothing but the best while she's over there in Sunny Cali. But damn am I going to miss her. I know I've mentioned Sophia in my posts before, but I don't think I've ever really given you the background on how we became such good friends. So please, allow me:
