In the Meantime

I have not blogged since October. At first, it was because of a persistent pinched nerve in my upper back. After a day in front of the computer at work, the last thing I needed was to hunch and lean some more. Then I got used to not writing. Then I got holiday-lazy and then […]

Summer ’14: Get Out

Last summer was our first season in Seattle. We spent a lot of it stressed out and lost. Literally lost. We relied on our GPS for the simplest trips. Both Brandon and I had jobs we hated with wonky schedules. I got sick from food allergies that I didn’t know I had yet. We didn’t […]

Music Monday: Monthly Playlists

I don’t journal as much as I should, but I do make monthly playlists. The correlation? Monthly playlists can tell Future Me what I was up to at a certain time, or at the very least, remind me of that time. Like, why did I put Janet Jackson’s “Escapade” in my March ’13 playlist? I […]

Sometimes when I’m scrolling down my Facebook feed, I’ll see posts like, “Well at least I’M not a skank ass bitch!” OR “Some people just don’t know how to keep their mouths shut. I have a good man. Your life is just sad.” I like to imagine the people who post those types of statuses standing […]

A Wednesday Share

Greetings from the pits of the plague. I have the flu and this is the most capable I’ve been in four days. By “most capable”, I mean sitting here on the couch, slightly upright and typing. What a victory. Anyway, I heard something today I thought was worth sharing.   If I think something is moving, […]

I Can’t Do This Alone (And I Wouldn’t Want To)

Greetings from the Pacific Northwest! Remember me? I’m the girl who moved across the country last May to live in sin in with her boyfriend in Seattle. Well, we’re still not married (because duh), but we are still together!Just like many other things that I’ve tried to prepare myself for, I knew this move would be hard, […]

My Mom Smells Good. And She’s Funny. And Smart.

My mom smells good. She always smells good. And she’s funny. And smart. And my mom can really put a room together. She hates squirrels and scares them away with cap guns. She recently told me, “Oh, Texas is famous for having rodents in their ceilings!” I don’t know how she knows that. If my […]

No, I’m Not Getting Married (So Stop Asking!)

I am moving to Seattle on Wednesday. With my boyfriend. I love him, he loves me and we think the Pacific Northwest seems like a cool place to live, so we’re moving there together. Maybe we will love it. Maybe we won’t. We will see. My boyfriend asked me to move with him last August, […]
