It’s a Merry Life, Weekly Edition
#1: Etsy.com - Typically I purchase birthday cards for my friends and family at Papyrus because their cards are the BEST. However, I’ve decided from now on to purchase cards from Etsy because the cards on Etsy are unique, handmade, and promote small businesses. I purchased some birthday cards from these shops: DeLuce Design, Jason Burian, Rachael And Sarina, and GGgreetings.
#2: Martha Stewart Home Office - I needed a binder to store my teachers edition of Kaplan’s SAT Prep so I strolled into Staples. On a mission to find something preppy and colorful I was disappointed in the available selection. But on my way out of the store a display of the Martha Stewart Home Office collection caught my eye with their lovely shade of blue. After a closer look I realized the binder was of really high quality, so I purchased it. Hopefully my volunteers and students enjoy my new binder as much as I do.
#3: Nashville - Turns out not only do I enjoy listening to country music but I may enjoy watching a new drama dedicated entirely to country music. One of the main characters, Juliette Barnes, is played Hayden Panettiere from Heroes. The first episode looked to be promising so I added it as a favorite on my Hulu account. Watch Nashville Wednesdays on ABC at 10PM.
#4: Oyster Bay Oyster Festival - This is something that my friend Jon, his mom, and I look forward to every year. There are countless food vendors with all of the seafood you can imagine, not to mention raw oysters! You’ll also find live entertainment and a variety of arts and crafts vendors.

#5: Coffee Meets Bagel - You’re thinking “omg yet another dating website!” Me too… Except this one is easy and convenient. It links with your Facebook profile to match you with your friends friends. Each day you’re given a new coffee or bagel and some details about that person. You then decide to “like” or “pass:. If you both “pass”, no worries but if you both “like” then you’ll be provided with the others contact information to set up a date. Easy-Peasy-Lemon-Squeezy! Disclaimer: I have yet to like a profile so I’m not sure how well the last part works. If you’re interested in Coffee Meets Bagel and need an invite just message me.
