Operation Birthday Boy

The other night Celine demanded we get dinner and told me she needed some creative ideas for her boyfriend Miguel’s birthday this coming weekend. When I asked her if Miguel wanted anything specific, she rolled her eyes and told me Miguel had hinted that he wanted a new baseball bat.

Meet the Parents
By Sarita | 09/01/2009 - 11:34

It's literally been years since I’ve met the parents of a guy I’m seeing. So this past weekend when I accepted an invite to spend the afternoon with Mr. Baldwin and his parents, I was equally nervous and excited. After rummaging through my closet forever to carefully select the perfect "meet the parents" ensemble—a sweet summery dress and some platform sandals—I hopped in a cab and was on my way.

Goodbye Guy
By Sarita | 08/27/2009 - 10:00

The other day I received an email from one of my girls about an old friend of ours who recently got engaged.

A few years back, I worked with Billy, a guy who eventually became one of our closest friends. Aside from being comrades-in-arms at work, the three of us spent a ton of time together running around New York City. We stuck together during the rough times and were always there for each other.

What Are You Wearing?!
By Sarita | 08/25/2009 - 13:51

For as much as we laugh, snarl and groan about the effort (or lack thereof) some men put into their fashion choices, we ladies must admit that they also look at us from time to time and think, “What the hell is she wearing?!”

Love Bites
By Sarita | 08/20/2009 - 14:21

I have a thing for vampires, partly Edward Cullen’s fault, but mainly because biting someone's neck is oh so sexy!

A little biting action never hurt nobody. Personally, I enjoy a love bite or two (OK, or three!) and thoroughly take pleasure in returning the favor.

But the other night, I had dinner with an old friend who told me about a recent experience that well, pretty much bites. I couldn’t help but giggle all through dessert.

It's So Hard To Say Good-Bye
By Sarita | 08/18/2009 - 11:52

This past weekend, Charlotte and I decided to engage in one of our favorite activities: midday margarita drinking. As we savored our salty, frozen slices of heaven, I rambled on and on about my awesome weekend with Mr. Baldwin. As I blabbed on, I noticed Charlotte wasn’t her upbeat self, so I asked her what was wrong.

She told me that last week she had a really rough day and there was nothing she wanted to do more than come home and enjoy a glass of wine. But when she arrived home, an empty bottle completely threw a wrench into her relaxation plans.

Are You a "Mate Poacher"?
By Sarita | 08/13/2009 - 10:20

I love all things science, especially when it comes to human nature. So when my friend emailed me an article the other day "Study Shows Single Women Prefer to Date Attached Men" I was whisked back to the hours I spent reading up on relationships and attraction for my degree in Interpersonal Communication Studies and Theory.

Family Matters

My sister recently got engaged, and I'm extra happy for her because besides having met her one true love, she is marrying someone who has an awesome family!

The very first time I met my brother-to-be's parents, I realized how lucky my sister was. They are a warm and down-to-earth family that loves my sister as if she were their own! Her fiancé is lucky too, he's marrying a woman with two sweet, sassy sisters and a big extended family that defines the word "fiesta."

Gonna Make You Sweat
By Sarita | 08/06/2009 - 17:30

I’ve always had an extremely regimented gym routine, however these past months I’ve fallen off big time! So after a few gym invitations from Mr. Baldwin, I finally joined him for a workout.

This was another first for me as far as my experiences with men. I was kind of nervous for Mr. Baldwin to see my in my gross workout clothes covered in sweat–especially since I feel so out of shape.

What’s Your Fantasy?
By Sarita | 08/04/2009 - 11:38

When it comes to sex and dating, I have a million fantasies that would most likely take more than a lifetime to fulfill. I truly savor the sweet moments when some of these fantasies do in fact, become a reality. My list includes, but is not limited to:
