Someone has started the 9-5 workday shift. (Actually, it's the 9-6 workday shift, but whatevs.) And that someone is me. I am a working woman now and money is magically appearing in our checking account every Friday! Woot woot.I don't really miss my abundant free time (but I do wish... Continue reading

Remember this? And this? Well, yesterday I missed NYC for the first time. I needed to shape the mop of hair that is slowly growing out on my head and so I scheduled my first salon visit in CA. I picked a place that was relatively close - 1.7 miles... Continue reading

There is a wave of dancing happening across the blogosphere. Lots of awesome people pointing out how important it is to let go and DANCE! Because, guess what? Life is short! And we've got to celebrate these bodies while we are in them! My home is filled with dance and... Continue reading

Well. Shawn and I celebrated our first New Year's Eve as a married couple. It was New Year's Eve my style, meaning we took it easy. We met friends for all-you-can-eat sushi, which sounds scary (in terms of quality), but trust me- it's AMAZING! And then we had those friends... Continue reading

And so am I! But I'm gonna go ahead and not worry about that until January 1st. Life is too short, and I love me some Christmas cookies! And cake! And chocolate! And cheese balls! And, and, and! I don't know about ya'll, but this year has been the calmest... Continue reading

Turns out I had nothing to be worried about. My mom and I like to spend our free time pretty similarly. We both like to sleep in. We both like to take our time waking up, drinking our respective forms of caffeine, and reading our favorite blogs. We both like... Continue reading

My mom is coming to visit. MY MOM IS COMING TO VISIT. This feels... WEIRD. My mom has never been able to just come visit. Because I was always a 6 hour plane ride on top of a three hour car ride away- at minimum. In the six and a... Continue reading

And I'm still glad to be here! Although this month has been totally insane between driving lessons, apartment hunting, and car shopping, I would definitely classify it as happy insanity! Here is a list of the simple things I love about Southern California: Weather - It's November and I don't... Continue reading

I did it. I made my first trip to CA on a one way ticket since 2004. Time flies. I thought I would cry when closing the door to my apartment for the last time. Or saying goodbye to the friends I so love. Or at least in the cab... Continue reading

This post is dedicated to my dear friend, Tara. Tara, who has been bugging me to feature her in a post ever since she became aware of my blog... which was like... 4 days ago. And I'm calling her on it because she would totally do the same to me.... Continue reading

I told him that I bet if Dexter had delivered this pie to Camilla she would have been 100% satisfied!

As predicted, my days have been filled with farewell lunches and dinners and breakfasts, which is great because I can kill two birds with one stone- see a friend and try a new restaurant! I know how to work it! No, really I do, because I take control. I do... Continue reading

Walking around the city feels so weird now. I feel like someone who is seeing the city for the first time. Everything amazes me. And I like it... but I don't. I want to see the city as I've always seen it- as my home. I mean, I have always... Continue reading

Okay, so during that time when I was mostly trying to fuse my skin to the couch (totally doable by the way... and also life threatening), I actually did do a few other things. Like go to Georgia for a week. That was fun. And worth talking about. I went... Continue reading

Remember in my last post how I was all, "Important moments blah blah blah, and memories blah blah, hold tight to blah"? Yeah... well, it's not like we didn't already know this, but it turns out most of those important moments and memories are going to revolve around my favorite... Continue reading

So. It's been a very long time since I've posted. And not because I have been too busy. Mostly because I have been not busy enough. I don't think anyone wants to read about my experience sitting on the couch, eating Lean Cuisines and watching Teen Mom... for like... two... Continue reading

Shawn and I share one very important common passion- FOOD. On our honeymoon we basically ate our way through Vancouver. It was like day six of The Very Hungry Caterpillar EVERY DAY. I won't bore ya'll with all of the deets, but here are the highlights: POUTINE- I can't believe... Continue reading

Over the weekend I went to Lake George with my husband, in-laws and some of my father-in-law’s co-workers. Now, I am not a large-body-of-water kind of person, I am not even really a pool person, but lakes and oceans have a special place on the scale of things that terrify... Continue reading

On May 29th, 2010 Shawn and I were married in a small, garden wedding. The officiant was our dear friend Steve and our witnesses were the nearest and dearest of our friends and family. We took initiative and wrote our own ceremony and vows. It couldn't have been more appropriately... Continue reading
