A couple of weeks ago, we visited Kendra and her husband in Charlotte. It was the first time we had been to their new house since they moved from Salinas, California and we were impressed with their new digs. They live in a grown-up house. Their house is what you think of when you think […]

A House Built on Blogging (and Love. Yeah, That Too.)

Often, blogging comes in pairs. You need to have a real-life companion to get you through the grind. B is my companion in more ways than the marital kind. He’s a blogger too. Did you know that? Probably not since I’m writing this against his will. He will die when he sees that I’m finally […]

Wedding Grievances

Just when I thought this year would pass by with no one getting married, one of our friends who we met in Korea got engaged. Whew. I was concerned that I may not have a chance to eat wedding cake until 2013. That is cause for panic. As great as my own wedding to B […]

Waves of Awesome

This has been a great week, and not just because Florida decided to mind its manners and clear its skies once we got there. (Although I would like to give a big shoutout to the Sunshine State for living up to its name.) First, Dear Expletive Baby had her baby. Awesome #1. Then, Squatch from […]

A Letter to Postpartum Me

Dear Me, If you are reading this, it means that you’ve just had another baby a few days ago. I know, I’m just as surprised as you are. Apparently you have reconciled yourself with the idea of not paying off your own student loans until you reach retirement age. Somehow, though, that new baby smell […]

I’ll Keep Being Weird

There must be something good in the water in Austin, Texas. I say this because I just noticed that several of the blogs I love such as I’ll Sleep When They’re Grown and A Rich Full Life are based out of Austin. Indeed a cool town with some cool people. If you sleuthed around for about 20 seconds, you’d […]


Graduation season is upon us. Lately, every time I log onto Facebook, I see my friends updating their statuses saying that their final projects and theses have been submitted and they just picked up their caps and gowns. B’s work schedule has changed a bit to accommodate the exams, and in a couple weeks he […]

Notes on the 38th Week

Can I just gush for a sec? Thanks. I’M 38 1/2 WEEKS PREGNANT! I could have my Bebe in my arms by next week’s end! Or – gasp! – this week’s end! Or – faint! – the end of today! I think back to when I found out about my pregnancy last July and I […]

The Eve of Bebe

How does it feel to be on the cusp of a radical life change? It’s strangely calm. B and I spent the weekend making some preparations. We bought about 100 rolls of toilet paper, made a mountain of food to be stored away in the freezer for when Bebe first comes home and we don’t […]

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 […]
