Team SACSS 2K13 Reunion

So every year, some of my college girlfriends and I get together for a reunion.  For the past few years, they’ve been kind enough to travel here to Raleigh to visit Sara and me.  However, we switched things up bit this year.  Last Friday through Monday (Aug. 16-19), Sara and I headed to the beautiful […]

Google Maps has the Tardis.

Remember last month when it came out that Diagon Alley from Harry Potter was on Google Maps?  Wellll, in case you haven’t heard yet, it was discovered yesterday that they’ve done it again.  This time, Google Maps’ Streetview has a little easter egg named Tardis.  If you click on this link to a map of Earl’s Court […]

Obligatory 1-3-13 Post

I’m not going to get many obligatory “fun number posts” this year, but c’est la vie.  I guess I’ll have to wait for the next decade to start before the sequential months, days, and years happen again, haha.

Have I Mentioned How Much I Love Camera +?

I still have that post I started working on 2 months ago about my favorite iPhone camera apps.  I am really not sure why I never finished it since I was more than halfway through it other than it just got to be a busy week at work and I guess I never had the […]

Divas Do Raleigh

So rather than wait two weeks, I figured I’d go ahead while I had the momentum and recap the fabulous time I had this past weekend with another group of my college girlfriends now.  So without further ado, here we go.
