Festivus: The Big Reveal

So it’s Friday. We made it. If you’re reading this right now, the world didn’t end, and for that, we should all celebrate. Of course, there are still several hours left in the day, so I’m not making any promises. But, look on the bright side: either way you have an excuse to get drunk. […]

Over the Meadow and Through the Woods

Alternate title – Well, This Should Be Fun: The Christmas Edition Ashley will be hosting the big Festivus for the ‘Pressed of Us finale here on Friday because I will be a bit¬†indisposed. B and I are gluttons for punishment and we have decided to make the trek home to Memphis for Christmas. In the […]

Presents! We have presents!: A very special Festivus post

I could write an introduction, but who would read it? No one. Because….. THIS IS THE PRESENTS POST! Goodies for all! Remember that Ashley and I invite you to write your own Festivus-inspired post on your blog. You can drop hints on who you gifted, muse over who gave you your gift, or air your […]

A Friendly Reminder

Ashley and I have been receiving so many fantastic Festivus gifts to dole out amongst you all that we are fighting the urge just to keep them all to ourselves. Really! They’re great! Huge props to everyone who has already sent in their gifts. But we want to make sure EVERYONE gets a present. This […]

You Are Cordially Invited!

It’s time to break out your holiday finery and put a lampshade on your head! The holiday season has arrived! I’ll be going to one or two Christmas affairs hosted by my friends and family this year, but nothing says “holiday stress” like hosting your own party. Which is exactly what I am going to […]

A Big Announcement

From the moment you get pregnant and realize that a family – your very own made-from-scratch family – is on the horizon, your thoughts shift. People will ask you what’s to come for your growing family, and as much as you resent their intrusiveness, you start to wonder if there will ever be more. Once […]

The Four Loves

So, for Valentines Day, I had planned on telling you how to make a Red Waldorf cake. This one, in fact: I made it yesterday afternoon and B and I tried it after dinner. He didn’t say so because he’s just that nice, but I have to admit that it just wasn’t good. It was […]

One more thought on the New Year before it’s timed out

So. A new year. And a big one. Some thoughts. It seems as though comments on the New Year fall into three categories: 1. You feel the need to say something about it because the previous year was tremendously great. This was my case. 2011 was one of the busiest, most fun years I can […]

2011: How did we do all that?

January: Happy New Year to us! One of our favorite celebration spots in Seoul was a bar called Shiva Pub, a tiny Himalayan-themed pub run by an awesomely crazy lady named Sunny who was bound to be as inebriated as us by the time we left in the wee small hours. February: In Korea, most […]

These are a few of my favorite memes

When Maria took those old curtains and whipped them up into new playclothes for the Von Trapp children, she took some random material and made them into something hilarious and borderline offensive. By getting inspired by the ugliness that surrounded her and duplicating it at least seven times, she was one of the original meme […]
