1/30/14

Kiddo’s sleepover last weekend was a success and hubs and I were able to enjoy a quiet evening at home. In preparation for our night in, we had planned to enjoy a Mexican feast of homemade nachos with all the fixin’s. A mistake was made in sending me to the store hungry and the cashier asked me if I were having actual Mexicans over for … Continue reading 1/30/14

the weekend and wheels

As briefly mentioned in a prior post, The Accountant and I had scheduled an all weekend babysitter for kiddo and a weekend getaway for ourselves. My throat issues mysteriously disappeared shortly after I complained about them and off we went. I could so live the rest of my life in a nice hotel. We were within walking distance of everything we wanted, and shuttle distance … Continue reading the weekend and wheels

weirdo beardo feardo

Its late. I just woke up feeling a bit panicky. That hasn’t happened in a couple of weeks. Nothing I can’t handle, just, feelings. The phrase “fake it till ya make it” popped into my head. True words. Watched a few clips from Amelie because I’m weird like that and there’s something soothing to me about listening to someone speak French regardless of what they’re … Continue reading weirdo beardo feardo

so it goes on the 4th of July

It rained today. I don’t mean it rained for an hour or two, it rained ALL dang day. We didn’t really have solid plans for the 4th anyway but if we had planned on outdoor activities, they weren’t happening. So we ventured to a lazy late breakfast at one of my favorite places that tries a little too hard to be reminiscent of Paris in … Continue reading so it goes on the 4th of July

Life isn’t like the movies, and how do babies get outta there

Frances Ha. 9 out of 10 stars. At first I found the dialogue a bit disjointed and awkward but I don’t know if I just got used to it or it appealed to me more after it settled in my brain after sleeping on it. Shot in black and white, it was lovely to look at and Greta Gerwig made the movie work I think. … Continue reading Life isn’t like the movies, and how do babies get outta there

friends, Jesus + the Burpee catalog, nerdwear, and Frances Ha

A friend and someone I admire very much told me the other day that she loves when I blog because it’s like “getting a hug over the internet”. I’m wondering if she may be reading a different blog because this one can get tedious sometimes. But really? Her comment may have made my day. Friends are kinda awesome. You should totally get some if you … Continue reading friends, Jesus + the Burpee catalog, nerdwear, and Frances Ha

trumping tiffany’s

So, today….the first day of 2013. Quiet day with kiddo and The Accountant, for the most part. I got a nice run/walk in this morning before the rain, kiddo and I went to Target for miscellany and then to Jersey Mike’s for sandwiches. I went to a movie by myself. The movie was pretty bad but the alone time was quite nice. The Accountant watched … Continue reading trumping tiffany’s

the day

Today was nice. We had our first parent-teacher conference ever. Who knew they do those for day care? Turns out, my kid is smart, sweet and socially adept. As if I didn’t already know that but its nice to hear it confirmed by an outside party. Then I picked up The Mayor and we headed to lunch and a viewing of The Hunger Games. A … Continue reading the day

a couple of things

So I was wondering today…must we put everything “on ice”?  Is this strictly a Disney thing?  I saw an ad yesterday for High School Musical – ON ICE!!!  Woot.  I’m pretty sure I’ve seen ads in the past for The Lion King – ON ICE!!! and Dora the Explorer – ON ICE!!!  And I’m sure it’s only a matter of time before we’ll see Hannah … Continue reading a couple of things
