time spent

Today was pretty great. Hubs was off work too so we took the kiddo to school and spent the day together. We went to the gym and got our sweat on, then rode the motorcycle to a monstrously large parking lot so he could give me riding lessons without endangering others, next was vegetarian sushi for lunch, sweet cece’s for dessert, capped off with a … Continue reading time spent

Pittsburgh

This one time…in Pittsburgh…I went to visit my friend Nora and we took boat tours and ducky tours and ate fondue and went up an incline and ate lots of snacks and went to the drive-in and played with her cool pet birdy and I went mountain climbing running with her tricky husband… I lurves her.

You should totally get some if you … Continue reading friends, Jesus + the Burpee catalog, nerdwear, and Frances Ha

I’m more like Melancholy Melanie today rather than Crankypants McGhee. Progress people, it’s a slow thing sometimes. Memorial Day weekend turned out nice. I won’t recap the details but here’s a list of sorts…family walk on greenway, family cookout and subsequent soccer playing, trip to the zoo, puppet making and puppet show, gym, toy mini cooper driving, park, meeting new neighbors who turned out to … Continue reading the latest
