Our “Snow” Trip

family days / terrific trips

Thursday night, Greg came home to his sobbing, nursing wife, blubbering about how all she wanted to do that day was to make a nice meal and make herself pretty for him – obviously neither of which actually got done. I love my husband. He just laughs at me. Although I never managed to escape the homeless lady look I had going on, I did get to whip up some sort of something edible once I […]

terrific trips / wedded bliss

So here is the little shack my husband took me to celebrate our last mini vacation as just the two of us for, probably, forever. It was glorious. We got there early so we could take advantage of that pool from heaven and smartly left our sunscreen in our bags going to the room. We now strongly resemble lobsters. But there were pina coladas and burgers and each wonderful thing!   And then after getting […]

From that one time… when we went to Napa and ate foods

So, we went to Napa last weekend and had a meal or two. I’m not really sure where to begin so let’s start here. These ribs were amazing. And no, they were not all for me. Stop judging, gosh.  They literally fell off the bone and into my mouth and in there all my little buds had a party. They partied so hard, I had a my whole pile finished and completed only to look […]

Oh Santa Cruz, how I miss you

I’m not sure why but I’ve been especially homesick lately. Luckily it was my best friends birthday this last weekend so I had an excuse to hit the road and rush upwards and onwards! Poor Greg had to stay home and work and work and work but he was ever so sweet and took me on a date to the magical land of Glendale before I left…. to get sushi. American pregnancy books say no no […]

So, if you have just been gripped with suspense as to whether Greg liked the outdoor addition, well, I’m happy to report, he did. Yippee!! Just look how happy.He was awfully cute bringing out as many candles as possible so we could have a candlelit dinner instead of turning on the dreaded outdoor light : ) I have trained him so very well. I love warm nights and that one was one of our favorites. […]

Oh Mr. Time, where do you go?

This last weekend, we headed up north for my cousin Lauren’s 30th BIRTHDAY PARTY! Naturally, it was an 80s theme party. Not one to brag, but….. I kinda won the costume contest… Actually my other cousin, Ashley, and her husband, Ricky, won first place cause they showed off their inner Madonna and Hammertime side (ugh if ONLY I had worn my cone bra), but I got next runner up which won me some Airheads and […]

Welcome 2014

family days / hikes! / terrific trips / that dog Bentley

Hmm, I’m not quite sure where to begin so let’s do highlights, shall we? 1) The day before we left for Santa Cruz was a rainy one complete with… THUNDER! ..which made Greg and I do a silent happy dance from separate rooms (considering he was on an important conference call : ) ) and sent Bentley bolting to his safe place under the bed like a scared little girl. I always suspected he was […]

I’m Thankful for Thanksgiving

To say this move has been a bit of an adjustment is an understatement. I don’t know what’s been up with me but for whatever reason, it’s been a whole lot more difficult than I ever expected. So, when Greg mentioned while we were sipping our coffee in bed that maybe we should leave today (last Saturday) instead of waiting to go up for Thanksgiving on Wednesday, oh my oh my.. how does one describe […]

I’m kind of in shock that we really only have two more weekends here. I was especially sad we won’t be getting to celebrate Christmas in this cozy little place so this weekend my dear friend and Christmas LOVER, Laurah, came up to have an early Christmas celebration. To Greg’s horror, we listened to Christmas music, had plans to bake Christmas cookies and drink pumpkin spice lattes but considering the weather was pushing triple digits, […]

Alrighty, let’s go back a couple of days. We were having a very slow, very boring work day (I had the lovely task of looking for even more apartments… gotta admit I was overly bored) and we heard the lovely little brrringgg!! of our adorable little doorbell.. seriously, look at it.. it’s precious. No one ever rings that bell except my family or our landlords so naturally the curiosity set in.. and it was……. my […]
