home sweet home

Thursday, July 2nd, 2009

i kinda went dark for 10 days there, eh? Not if you follow me on twitter, though.:) Chile is an incredible place. Played on snow covered volcanoes, ran down gigantic sand dunes, and tasted some of the best wine I’ve ever had. And that’s barely scratching the surface. Over the next few days I’ll be […]

Chile so far

Monday, June 22nd, 2009

Hello from chile. I have been at the Santiago airport for 7 hours now and our flight isn’t until 7. Hurray for travel days. An iPod touch and free wifi have made the wait more tolerable and ruthie and I have plenty to talk about. I find Spanish very confusing – like French in a […]

The dress

Thursday, June 4th, 2009

No, not that kind of white dress. But the dress I bought to take along to Vegas. Those of you who follow me on Twitter might remember some tweets about a lost (and then found) bracelet of mine that I left at a store I had stopped at the night before to try [and then […]

I’m home!

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2009

Took the red eye home from Vegas last night, so it’s back to the real world for me. I did love listening to 680 news (3, 4, 5 times a day!) on our drive from the airport downtown and hearing the lead story – a BEAR in a tree. If they didn’t repeat it every […]

A different kind of count down

Tuesday, May 26th, 2009

1 = the number of antibiotics I have left to take 2 = the number of days until my Garmin 305 is delivered to the hotel 3 = the number of sleeps until VEGAS! Life is happy.

Chile will be Chilly

Thursday, May 7th, 2009

It’s official – I’m heading to Chile for 10 days at the end of June/beginning of July with my friend Ruth. In typical Jenn style, I’ll be leaving the day after a stagette, and getting home the day of the rehearsal dinner for the same wedding (in which I’m marching). At least there’s not a […]

schachters vs. snow-mageddon

Thursday, December 18th, 2008

tomorrow i leave on a plane. maybe. the radio is calling it snowmageddon. i’m staying calm until i have reason to do otherwise. my dad is already in full on panic mode. we’ll have to wait and see what happens.

the things i worry about

Tuesday, December 16th, 2008

vacation is fast approaching. i do enjoy my twice weekly spin classes, so was thinking about taking a spin class on the boat. but my instructor told me that when he cruises, he just uses the bike and does his own thing. sounded novel – and no waking up early required. but i’m no spin […]

tso long tsukiji

Wednesday, December 10th, 2008

I caught an article about how tourists are going to be banned from tsukiji fish market (at least temporarily). Two thoughts: sucks for all the folks who are going to visit Tokyo and not be able to see the crazy Tuna auctions (and other fish) i’m glad I’ve been there 🙂 (Seems to be during […]

Friday, September 5th, 2008

hello blogosphere, it’s been awhile. too long probably. and now summer is over. le sigh. anyway, just wanted to say hi. and here’s a cool picture of me in front of golden gate bridge – i biked it AND i didn’t fall. wahoo!
