Congratulations, Joseph! This week my husband graduated from college! He know has a B.S. in computer science and information technology. To celebrate, I threw him a small party–only the two of us were invited.

I picked up this gelato cake at a local gelateria. It wasn’t much of a cake, though–a lot of chocolate gelato on top of a layer of vanilla. On the bottom and a very thin sponge cake that served as a sort of a crust. Around the outside was a hazelnut spread.

The living room was decorated in confetti, streamers, balloons, and a “Congratulations!” banner.

Say hello to my new purse–the Coach Small Leather Sabrina Satchel.


I don’t know what’s come over me or why I’ve suddenly become such a fan of Coach leather (I’ll pass on their fabric bags, thank you!), but I am really in love with this purse. I can’t wait to get some photos of me actually holding it, as that’s when it looks its best.


This is one of those “What’s in your bag?” memes bloggers often do. I carry around my keys, a cardigan, John Frieda Frizz-Ease, Trident Citrus Twist gum, a “calculator” pouch that holds Neosporin, band-aids, and chapstick, my blue iPod Nano, Hand sanitizer, a pen, a book (my new purse is small, so this has been my go-to since most of my reads are too big to comfortably fit), and my Coach wallet. Not pictured is my camera, which is obviously taking this photo.
