Happy birthday Julie Roads!

Happy Birthday

I met Julie over Twilight comments and my life has never been the same. She is a talented writer, a successful blogger, a savvy businesswoman and a wonderful friend.  She is witty and clever and full of life. A petite thing like me, we are both around 5 feet tall, but she is large and […]

Forty Six North Bound (Boston, MA)

I am feeling a bit tired today so Saturday Six will only be four.  I am still trying to catch up on a long trip home from Orcas Island on Monday and a very busy work week.  So without further delay, here are my picks for this week. [1] I have already written about the […]

Happy Saturday! If you are a cycling fan, the Tour de France starts today and you can admire the lovely French scenery as they broadcast the race, that’s my favorite part! I am enjoying a 4-day weekend.  Yesterday was my off-Friday and I have Monday off for the 4th of July holiday – it’s a […]

Saturday Six #27


When I look over my selections this week for Saturday Six I see two themes: love/marriage and etiquette.  I didn’t plan it that way.  Throughout the week as I read your many, many blog posts (I have over 300 blogs in my reader), I copy the urls of those that really stick with me into […]

Saturday Six #24


Can I just say that it is incredibly hard to find a picture of six mochi?  It is not a very popular number in Asian culture, so I couldn’t find any photos with six in them!  So I went with rice which is the key ingredient in mochi instead.  Why do I have mochi on […]

EAT Pray Love (and Drink)


A few weeks ago I blogged about what my version of Eat Pray Love would be. I believe nearly everyone can relate to at least one aspect of Elizabeth Gilbert’s story. I was thinking just that when it hit me that two of my best blogging buddies,  Julie of Writing Roads, Alisa of Project Happily […]

Saturday Six #18


You know what happens when I take a mini-blogcation? I get to read more blogs! So of course this week’s Saturday Six isn’t six, it’s seven. But you have come to expect that from me, right? I actually had more but wanted to be reasonable and not make this post too long.  So here goes: […]

Saturday Six #16


Nearly the end of March? Unbelievable.  I have not seen this month at all.  A sign that there are too many things going on and some adjustments will need to be made. Do you do that? Take stock on a frequent basis to make sure that the things you do are meaningful and bring value […]

Had a crazy week this week and next won’t be any calmer. I was in training to finish a certification I have been trying to complete for nearly two years. All the while also keeping up on work emails and tweeting for my company. Needless to say, I did not have much time for reading […]

The Big Reveal


I have been very conscientious about having photos of myself on the internet.  I use an avatar everywhere.  I don’t add photos to Facebook and I don’t have photos of myself or my husband on this blog.  For me it has been a matter of privacy. Sort of, despite the fact that I am an […]



There lots of places to track me down and keep up with all the action!

You can follow me on Twitter I tweet out some of the 400 blogs I read on a weekly basis; interesting articles I find as well as photos from Instagram and FourSquare check-ins! I check in on Facebook a couple of times a day and post Foodspotting photos and other fun things I find to keep you entertained. I am slightly addicted to Pinterest too and try to keep things going on Google+!

I blog daily so you'll want to subscribe to the RSS for this blog or get your posts straight to your email box.

It works both ways...you can drop me a line at MisadventuresWithAndi AT gmail DOT com with any questions or requests and I'll more than happily take them into consideration!
