I’m basically trying to burn off approximately 2,000 croissants from our trip to Spain last week. Seriously, you cannot go into a building in Spain and not find a croissant. It’s the best thing ever. Of course, there’s also all manner of other pastries, but I mean…croissants. We had large ones, plain ones, chocolate ones, […]...

I’ve been up to my elbows in packing paper and cardboard boxes this week, which is excellent for me, but pretty boring for you, I’m sure. I haven’t posted since last Tuesday. I’m not even joking, I’ve been feeling like I lost an arm or something. It’s totally weird for me to go so long […]...

It’s official…we’re in Europe! We landed right around lunchtime, Belgian time, and are probably in the Netherlands by now. I just realized I have no idea what time zone we now live in…I need to do some research… Well, anyway, no matter what time zone you’re in, today is Harry Potter’s birthday! Can you believe […]...

You know what are not nice? Geese. When I was probably 14 or so, I didn’t know they were so territorial. There was a flock of them…a gaggle? Anyway, a lot of them on the hillside by the pool at the church camp I attended. I was all, “Heh heh. Watch this.” I ran at […]...

* Before I say anything, I feel duty bound to tell you: these waffles were in the top three biggest hits list with my entire family. Huge deal here, people. I thought you’d want to know. * When we lived in Vermont, there was some really fun places to ski. The mountains are smaller, but […]...

Did you guys know that it was Hermione’s birthday last week? September 19th, to be exact. Technically, she turned 33 years old this year. You may recall that I have established that, had my letter not been lost, the Trio would have been the Quatro. Whatevs. Last week, on the morning of Miss Granger’s birthday, […]...

I know that the gym is supposed to be all judgement free and everything, but my head isn’t. I try to make it be, but it never works out all that well for me. I’m not mean, though. I mean, I don’t judge anyone for the way they look, or whatever. I think if you’re […]...

I took my first BodyPump class last week. For those of you who don’t know what that is, I’ll just simplify it by saying that it’s an hour of torture in which you are made to repetitively move a weight up and down and all around. To music. They should really call it BodyDump, because the next […]...

Sorry for the lack of posting this week, you guys. I was kinda busy, and I didn’t plan ahead at all and get something crazy good made in advance so that I wouldn’t have to think or work all weekend (cause I’m a professional). I think I may have mentioned that I was going to […]...
