When I first found out we were pregnant, I just knew we would have a hard time deciding on a name. I'm pretty sure every time we talked about baby names in the past, we could never agree on one. I happen to be super picky with names, meanings, etc.... Continue reading

Today marks the beginning of my third trimester! I realized I hadn't posted a belly pic, but I only recently started to show. I'm at the point now where I'm starting to get more uncomfortable, mostly just at night as I can't seem to find the best position to sleep.... Continue reading

I'm trying to get back in the swing of making more consistent posts, even if they are days late. But hey, it's a start. This Christmas we spent at my Grandma's house with some of our family. My uncle's family and my brother were all sick so they weren't able... Continue reading

Today we went to have a 4D ultrasound and we got to see Baby Meijer! She was napping most of the time and the tech struggled to get her to wake up. I guess that means she takes after me. xD Usually, she is all over the place and moving... Continue reading

It's been so long since I shared anything on my blog so why not share some exciting news! We have a baby coming in March 2018! We found out earlier this week what we are having and finally announced today. Baby Meijer is a girl! Continue reading

As I was reminiscing about the old days and browsing through my painfully juvenile posts, I realized that my first actual blog post was made 10 years ago today. Yep, a whole decade ago I decided to make a blog. Not that I've exactly kept up with it the past... Continue reading

Every time I tell myself I am going to update my blog, shit comes up or I procrastinate until I forget I was going to do it in the first place. Let this post be a step in the right direction. Oh, and here's a picture of cats. Continue reading

We celebrated Christmas at my grandmother's house this year, like we do most years. I'm trying to get in the habit of taking more photographs with my SLR, but of course I brought it with me and didn't take a single picture. Ha! I need to make that my new... Continue reading

Last month, I got word from my mom that my Dad was interviewing for a job in Tulsa. The interview being with one of his old colleagues within the same company. I entertained myself with the idea that my Dad would accept the job and they would move much closer... Continue reading

Despite being alone for New Year's Eve, I started off New Year's Day with one of my closest friends today. Lindsey came to visit me for the first time since I moved fffaaarrr away. As luck would have it, she happens to only work on the weekends, which is my... Continue reading

The Christmas Tree lives on for one more day! Only because I'm not ready to put away my new ornaments. Cute, eh? I'll be bringing in the new year alone tonight. I'm not usually a big fan of celebrating the new year, but I do have some vodka and Minecraft... Continue reading

Brittnie and I couldn't wait to go back to Boulder after our last trip, so when planning this trip we just knew we had to stay longer this time. We booked a nice little hotel in Louisville the first few nights, and spent our last night in a hotel in... Continue reading

Earlier today, I dropped Alex off at the airport. After being here for a little over a year, he finally gets to fly home to the Netherlands to visit family which just so happens to be Christmas Eve. Unfortunately, for me, that means I get to spend Christmas alone for... Continue reading

I have never been a sports fan nor could I ever tolerate watching sports, but a few years ago I got to experience the World Cup in Holland where literally everyone and everything was about football. I would say it's like the US equivalent of the Super Bowl, but I... Continue reading

I found out last month that my grandfather had cancer and that it had spread to his liver. As it progressively got worse over a short period of time, I knew that it wouldn't be long before he would pass away. When I was younger, I always tried to prepare... Continue reading

Minecraft managed to work it's way back into my spare time this summer. While waiting for my job to start in August, I pretty much spent all of my time building a shitload of awesomeness and exploring scary ass caves. For awhile it was just my brother and I, but... Continue reading

Alex has been living here for five months now so it's no surprise he gets homesick from time to time. On New Year's Eve, we made some Oliebollen (a popular Dutch treat for New Year's). After many failed attempts we were able to get it right. Still not as perfect... Continue reading

Alex and I went for a night out to see Gregory Alan Isakov play while they were in Tulsa. Parker Millsap opened for him and together they both put on a great show. For once I didn't take a tons of photos or videos, I just enjoyed the music. On... Continue reading

I've been on Christmas break for the past two weeks, and I'll admit I have enjoyed it a little too much. I enjoyed it so much that my procrastinating ass hasn't graded a single paper. I'm a terrible teacher. I was going to do it today, really I was. And... Continue reading

I saw Sera Cahoone open for Gregory Alan Isakov in August, and I absolutely loved seeing her perform live. I found out she was going to be playing at the Vanguard in Tulsa so I immediately bought tickets for Alex and I. She is definitely among my favorite songwriters. After... Continue reading

After moving into my first home in July, I was bombarded with all the new things a first-year teacher needed to do. All of my priorities at the time revolved around work. I had to get my classroom ready, attend a dozen trainings, and get to know my co-workers all... Continue reading
