It’s no secret that Ryan & I were in pepband together. We met in band, and were friends throughout our college carriers. What is funny to me (and is a running joke with our friends) is how many other people who met in band have paired up. Out of the people that were in band...

Someone I know (possibly several people I know) says this, and I always laugh. What a weird statement. This week at work has flown by, and instead of being productive last night, after we put the baby to bed and made a list of what we need to pack (and did an attempt to get...

8:00 – Arrive at work; start up computer programs; check/attach email 9:00 – Start working on project What seems like 5 minutes later… 11:00 – Look at clock. Panic about where last 2 hours went. 1:00 – Panic again, but keep working on small projects. Feels good to get things off my desk/to-do list. 1:00...

Ryan and I are spending today cleaning our apartment. So far laundry is put away, my sewing area is picked up after the Halloween insanity, Ryan’s desk is cleaned off, I vaccuumed the living room rug, Ryan cleaned the bathroom, I did most of the dishes, and I swept the hallway and living room. It’s...

Does anyone else find it romantic when books/people describe their grocery shopping and all they buy is “milk, bread, fruit and cheese”? Because I wish that’s all we had in our fridge/all we wanted. It sounds so simple (and so European!). And yet our fridge also has juice, 13,000,000 condiments, jam, butter, meat, various leftovers,...

I have noticed that this whole 30 days meme has been beneficial for me. Once I got going, it was fairly easy to keep up the writing daily, and there have been times that I post more than one entry per day, or when I think about new things to write about, even though I...

 These photos are older, but represent some more of my excellent friends. Also, proof that I can (kind of) play an instrument. The reason I’m wearing that purple shirt has to do with a joke between some of my high school friends and me. I was wearing UMD apparel most of the evening. ;-)

I’m not great at creating SMART goals. I have a couple for this month, though: 1. Decide on and create Halloween costumes for Ryan and I for the themed party we are attending. The theme is fantasy (fairies, Lord of the Rings, Alice in Wonderland, dragons, etc). Any fabulous ideas out there? Could be a...

Ryan and I went to the East Coast last fall, as kind of a “baby moon,” although we didn’t call it that. It was just a nice last trip out there while it was still fairly easy for us to travel. We went to Albany, Connecticut, NYC for a day, Delaware for dinner, and spent...

You mean, besides saying I’m going to write on this blog every day and then failing spectacularly? Biting my nails. I quit biting them after James was born. I was doing so well! I made it until the end of July, and then in 5 minutes undid all the work I had done. They were...
