Anyway, it wasn’t a milestone, but since he was still overseas for his birthday last year, I was super excited to make the […]...

When I was a little girl, my parents the Easter Bunny always put my, and my sisters’, Easter baskets at the foot of our beds. I’m not sure how that tradition started, but it was every, single year. I don’t remember ever being sneaky and trying to catch Santa Claus in the act on Christmas…I […]...

I went to the dentist yesterday. I had a bunch of stupid shots and I got a wisdom tooth extracted. There was nothing fun about it, and I’m being a big, spoiled baby today, because I can. I never whine, I’m never a brat when I’m sick, and I never make anyone take care of […]...

Did you know that today is Ron Weasley’s birthday? Did you also know that Ron is my favorite character of the Trio? He is. I love him. He is my Wheezey. No, he’s not perfect. Yes, he can be a bit spoiled and out of touch, but he’s also funny, adorable, and more loyal than […]...

You will read no spoilers here. Please do not share any. Thank you!!! I watched the finale for Downton Abbey (season 3) yesterday. Finally.

2012. It’s over. This was, for me, at least, one of the fastest years ever, while also being interminably slow. Starting out fast paced with a move to the West coast, it slowed way down for the almost four months I had to wait for the Hubster to come home for good. Since then, though, […]...
