Remember when I told you that I, along with my fellow bridesmaids, were hosting a bridal shower for my dear friend Kristin? Well, we did that. And, if I do say so myself, we did that well. Everyone seemed to have a blast, everyone enjoyed the food, everyone had fun playing the games, and, most importantly, everyone celebrated the beautiful upcoming nuptials for Kristin! I am so, so, so excited for her. Marriage is the best. I thought I’d share… Read more »

In case you were wondering, all the fingernail polish on my right pointer finger chipped off in the shower this morning. I don’t know how, or why, or even when. Considering all my other fingernails have almost all of the polish still on them, I am a touch flabbergasted. I’m also flabbergasted that I put things like throw pillows and candlesticks on my Christmas list when we don’t even have a kitchen trash can yet. I’ve got to sort out… Read more »

How you doin’? I am, how you say, sore as heck? Surprisingly, I’m not that sore (yet) in my arms and back, which were what were getting so tired painting yesterday. My glutes and hammies, though, are killing me. Almost as much as saying “hammies.” I apologize. Moving on. We got so much painting done! The house looks much, much less beige/ugly. I am happy. I got a fair amount of packing done, though I still need to bust it… Read more »

Well, Helloooooo. Do you want to see some little sneak peeks of our house? It’s a beige monster. I think you’ll agree it has great bones, but what you’re about to see is graphically, offensively one-note. And that’s okay. Because in the far, distant future, we will be ripping up that beige carpet and putting down gorgeous, dark wood. and that is a game changer. I’m telling you this so that you know that almost everything is completely temporary. We’re… Read more »

Sometimes I feel like my only friend is the city I live in, the City of Angels. Just kidding. This does not bode well for this post. I don’t even know what I feel like. Thanks to everyone for the birthday wishes. It was pretty good, for a birthday surrounded with disappointment and regret. Okay, I’m exaggerating. My husband did a good job of making me feel special. I just need to realign my life goals. I feel whirly and… Read more »

Hi, how are ya? My allergies are still trying to murder me. I am miserable and in pain and I don’t understand why I’m being punished. Anyway, in happier news, I think I’ve pretty much decided on a color theme of ivory, dusty pink, and gray for my office. The carpet that will eventually  be a gorgeous hardwood is ivory, so I want to do pink walls with one accent/feature wall, where the window is. I’d first like to anchor… Read more »

I hate Tuesdays, I hate mornings, I hate work days. I am grumpy today. Mostly because I went to bed a little too late, and then my lovely husband punched or elbowed me in the face early this morning. Right in the mouth. That really hurt, and it’s still hurting, Charlie. One of my favorite parts of marriage is sharing my bed with my best friend and having the most perfect lil’ snuggle buddy. But NOT when that lil’ snuggle… Read more »

Hello, hello, and a good Tuesday to you as well. How have you been? What’s goin’ on? I feel like it’s been a while since we chatted. I hope you’re well. I’m pretty well. I think I have allergies, but no matter. Soon winter shall come and kill everything, and then I shall breathe again. Why is Thumbelina now stuck in my head? Now there’s no more sun. Winter has killed everything. And although it’s dark December, forever I’ll remember… Read more »

Happy (?) Tuesday, peeps. I have good news. Thanks to a pro tip, we found some stellar bedding for our new king sized bed! I actually fell in love with it and hope that it’ll match the house we end up buying, but it wasn’t so expensive that I’ll be upset if it becomes spare bedding in the linen closet. We found it on (, thanks to a pro tip (lookin’ at you, lovebug!).   Here she is, in all… Read more »
