Last Night, I Went to Jail….during a party.

Made you look! Just kidding. I'm talking about Twitter Jail. ;) If you unfamiliar with Twitter jail, let me explain.  It happens when you go over your allotted tweets for the hour or the day. For instance, the amount of tweets you're allowed are 100 tweets per hour/1,000 tweets per day.  If you go over those tweets, you can no longer tweet until an hour or so later.  During a Twitter party, that can really suck which is why I decided to create another Twitter handle. Last night was a … [Read more...]

Happy Thanksgiving!

By now, everyone has eaten their Thanksgiving meal and are probably comatose like my husband. I was almost there but I fought it.  Anyway, I wanted to stop and take some time to tell everyone what I'm thankful for this year (in no particular order) This year I'm thankful... For my family - You love and support me unconditionally and are there for me when I need someone to talk to or a shoulder to lean on. For my friends - Both real and virtual.  Thank you for being you.  And because of … [Read more...]

Shout-Out Sunday – 11/21

HAPPY SUNDAY EVERYONE! There’s a new trend here at New York Chica where I give a special Shout-Out to those bloggers who had a great post (at least I think so ) for the week. I wanted to show my readers that there are plenty of great writers/bloggers out in the blogosphere and giving props to fellow bloggers is a great way to give back to the blogging community. Since I started blogging in 2006 (2008 publicly), I’ve met so many good, sincere and accomplished bloggers like Niri … [Read more...]

Happy New Year!!

Wow, I can't believe it's 2009.  Can you?  Did anyone see the Times Square ball drop?  I did and I do every year since I was a little kid.  It's like a tradition seeing that bright silver ball dropping the last 15 seconds to bring in the new year.  It's also a tradition seeing Dick Clark during the New Year's Eve bash at Times Square.  He's the best.  I feel bad for him because he's not doing too well; you can tell by the way he was talking last night.  It's going to be really sad when he leaves … [Read more...]

Enjoy the last day of 2008!

So here it is.  The moment we've all been waiting for.  The last day of 2008.  I've got to be honest.  2008 wasn't that great for me.  It wasn't bad but it wasn't the best either. I know there's people out there that totally understand me.  So I am really hoping that 2009 is better for this country; the United States, everyone that reads my blog and my family; Healthwise, moneywise and happiness. I don't have any "real" resolutions because I know for a fact I would break that anyway but I do … [Read more...]
