Tax Season

At one point in my career of varied jobs I worked for a CPA and prepared the corporate taxes for several companies.

Yes, they paid him the big bucks and I did the actual work.

One good thing did come out of that experience. The few times I had to file my income taxes without the assistance of a tax preparer, I just headed over to the library and picked up some tax forms.

I’d return home and with my W-2s in hand work on my taxes myself.

I totally get that understanding the W2 form isn’t something you wake up being able to do but luckily we now have so many resources online to help us out if we file our taxes ourselves.

I could totally kiss the Internet for making life so much easier so when April 18th rolls around next week, we can all breathe a sigh of relief that our taxes were filed.

BYOB

Love going to Southern Hospitality (the Upper East Side location) for a quick, simple brunch.

And I still love it now when BYOB now means bring your own baby

Ultimate Blog Party 2011

Hey there, party goers — I’m so happy to see you!

It’s exciting to have party guests over here for the Ultimate Blog Party 2011.

Ultimate Blog Party 2011

My name is Victoria. I’m a broadcast journalist and mom living in Manhattan.

This is the first time I have participated in the Ultimate Blog Party. I can’t wait to learn about everyone who stops by.

I’m giving away a Pink Lining brand “Yummy Mummy” diaper bag – valued at $125. It’s listed on the Ultimate Blog Party prize page (prize # ) – so if you like it, remember to put it on your wish list!

I started 24 7 Victoria in December 2009 to blog about my life because living in the city that never sleeps keeps me busy. This blog is a look at what I’m doing (almost) every day.

I like to learn something new every day — like make sushi.

I love listening to Adele, solving Wheel of Fortune puzzles before anyone else, choosing a daring Essie nail polish color, traveling to an island I’ve never been to and cooking family style meals.

You can find out more about me by reading my 100 Things and from looking at my Life List.

I’d love for you to follow me on Twitter and “like” my Facebook page.
