Overpriced Nonsense

Why does Nordstrom only have items that are $500??? If that's the case, why allow people to buy $50 gift cards? Why not have a minimum amount of $500 required to buy a gift card? Really though.

Don't you wanna dive on in, yeah the water feels right
Dancin' on the edge of the love you're a beautiful sight
So why're you still standin' there in the half moonlight
Come on, baby, give me a little more you
You're battin' those baby blue eyes and, honey I swear
The way you got me needing you boy, it just ain't fair
You've given me a little bit yeah, but don't stop there
Come on, baby, give me a little more you...

I need YOUR help!

Hello fellow bloggers!

While I really have no idea who reads this silly blog of mine that I sadly neglect more often than I should, I have something really important to me that I'd like to share and I hope people take interest in it!

On Sunday, June 13th, I am walking 7 miles in NSTAR's Walk for Children's Hospital Boston on behalf of my team at Marriott. Why am I walking 7 miles? When the sickest of kids need the best healthcare in the world, they come to Children's Hospital Boston. Children's is an amazing place where the doctors and nurses are compassionate, creative, and committed to saving kid's lives. Children's has been ranked nationally as one of the best pediatric hospitals for almost two decades. They care for more than 500,000 patients every year - many with health problems no other hospital in the world can handle.

Marriott asked that we raise $150 for our walk. I said, why stop there? I am hoping to raise over $500 to support Children's Hospital's life-changing care and world-changing research. Your donation to this cause gives sick kids a chance to live the life they deserve. While even a $5 donation seems like it would not make a difference, multiply that by how many friends can participate and you can see the difference your donation can make. I am already half way to my goal, and am asking everyone's help to keep pushing forward!

Should you wish to donate to support my Walk for Children's Hospital Boston, please click the below link which will direct you to my personal fundraising page. I very much appreciate your support, and look forward to representing Marriott, my family and my friends on June 13th.

Thank you for your kind support! :)

I say it's love...

...Alisha just called me. WE'RE GOING TO SEE SUGARLAND IN MAYYY!!! YESSSSSS! I thought the concert was sold out so I didn't bother to look into tickets. So pumped! What a great day.

JOSH CAME HOME TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! omg finally!! That seemed like the longest week long cruise of my life! I missed you so much babe! :) Life is back in order<3

Last night Jess and I found ourselves at Patriot Place for a few too many icy beverages, and next thing I know, I'm home back at Jess' apartment creeping the Patriots roster. Why you ask? Well, we hung out with 4 guys for a majority of the night who were being so shady saying they were all in town for a Plumbers Convention- turns out they're all Patriots players. AND- I told them they were a joke and I didn't want to hang out with them anymore, so I went to hang w/ my guy friends on the other side of the bar.

WAY TO GO, JEN. Jess later asked them what their shady deal was, and they were like "ok ok we play for the Pats but DON'T SAY ANYTHING we don't want a scene." And surer than shit, it was confirmed via the Patriots 2010 roster. Wahoo. They live in Jess' apt complex though and we will attempt to hang with them again next time I go to visit her. YAY

Today was massive basement overhaul post flooding. I have never thrown away so much shit in my life, and we're only about 45% done. OH MY GOD. It's gonna cost like $600 to have all this stuff hauled away. It's about time we did this! My achin' back. lol

Prior to the basement cleanup, I laid out on the deck with my book and got TAN LINES. What a freakin' gorgeous day. Who could ask for anything better than 70 and sunny in March?! So sunkisseddd<3 Also bought some gorgeous orange tulips today to celebrate the first day of spring!

Round 2 down in the basement tomorrow so I stayed in tonight to rest up. Oh well. anddd it's always on the nights I decide I'm to beat to go out that people start coming out of the wood work and want to get wild! :(

Time to On Demand a movie and snug in bed w/ some wine :o)

Adios! xo

Day 6.

So last night was an Irish filled evening @ Homeplate. Green mardi gras beads, green beer, irish tunes, Celtics, good friends. Good night :-) The old Jen has emerged!

Went back to work this morning to find all kinds of Post-Its and treats and ppl even filled my candy jar w/ Kit Kats! I feel so loved in that office, I really do. "Feel better Jen!" "We miss you!!!" ...I was out ONE day! They rock.

Having 100 emails in my inbox to come back to tho? Didn't rock. But I made it through the day!

Nana got moved to a cute lil old person rehab center to continue her physical therapy before she moves back home. It's like a freaking hotel in that place! The rooms are huge and so nice, they have all kinds of activities, the nurses rock. I think she'll have fun while she's there. Happy it turned out that way!

Time for a mani and pedi before bed! I can't believe tomorrow is Friday already! wahoo!! and nice weather all week at that? Incredible. Going to a Barstool event in Boston after work tomorrow around Fenway with the boyssss. YAY! Things could get weird. 8-)

Everyone's Irish on March 17th

Sooo I called out of work today because I was feeling under the weather this morning, but after a wee little slumber and nice weather, some wiffleball and green beer cured my blarney illness.

Shower time and back to the ol' Homeplate for some Irish heritage celebrations ;-)

Another shot of whiskey, can't stop lookin' at the door...

...wishin' you'd come sweeping in the way you did before...

Day 4. Tomorrow? Hump day. :-) <3

So the town I live in is next to this other town that I live next to, and in the middle of our towns is the XYZ River. Now generally, the XYZ River is disgusting and no one even thinks anything of it's existance. Until today. Driving down the main drag in my town to go visit Nana in the hospital (she had her hip replaced a few weeks ago) and to then proceed to my gym, I approached a flashing sign stating that the road was closed up ahead and we should seek an alternate route. The other drivers and I looked at each other in our cars and kept on going! A few miles down the road, I discovered a brand new lake that I never knew existed in Massachusetts. This lake was actually what had become of the street I was driving on.

I had seen all the flooding in Waltham and Quincy and other areas of MA, but had no idea the severity of the XYZ River overflowing! Jeesh. So myself and about 50 other cars did 9 point turns and headed back home.

Sorry Nana, gym. Guess I'll be seeing you tomorrow!

Today at work, I had an epiphany. I am already bored with my new job. Don't get me wrong, I love it. But once I master something, I can't do it any longer. I constantly need challenges and new goals and new heights to reach. I don't want to continue this mastered path I'm on, or I worry I will begin to resent going to work everyday. In my office, I conduct all Transient Business for Marriott hotels throughout the entire North East. There is only so much to transient business. Today I hand delivered the phone number of an angry customer who was planning an event at a certain hotel and hadn't received a call back from his sales manager after leaving a few messages. I asked the event sales manager chica to show me what she does. HOW FUN. I think I'd be better off on the other side of our office booking events and weddings and meetings. Similar to what we did at my old Newport hotel back in the day. Not just negotiating corporate rates for my whole life. More to come.

Tomorrow night post work is dinner in Boston w/ the owner of my old hotel and our director of sales. Woot woot. If I'm good at one thing, it's keeping in touch with people. Looking forward to some Stoli Doli martinis ;-)

I secretly wish I auditioned for American Idol. Shoot. My secret's out...
