Back when I made my 30 things to do before 30, I had a big line item on there to figure out what or how I felt about kids. You know, those people that happen when a boy loves a girl, and they have unprotected sex? Yeah, that. And then… nothing. I never mentioned it… Continue reading Baby or not?
I’m going to open this by saying that I don’t believe in the concept that there is one person in the whole world for everyone. Realistically, if I hadn’t married my husband, there is a good chance I would have married someone else and probably had a good life. BUT… at the same time, I… Continue reading
I know, I know... trust me, I know. Valentine's Day is minefield of holidays with those who love it with its emphasis on pink and presents and those who bemoan the forced romance of it all. Personally, I love it, but I get why other people don't. It was always hard for me to explain… Continue reading V-Day Plans
Z. doesn't read my blog but if he was going to - don't do it, babe! I really struggled this year with what I was going to get Z. I feel like the first two years of our marriage, I killed it. First married Christmas together I started his scotch collection (did the research, bought… Continue reading Christmas Gifts for Hubby
My most recent trip to Chicago was actually a business trip for my husband that we tacked on a little pleasure. The trip allowed me a lot of time for reflection on what I used to do before my Z. days… the old days of dating and singleness. While there is a lot to be… Continue reading All the Married Ladies
I have been married for two years. Two years of rapid change and changing circumstances, but these whirlwind years have been some of the best of my life. I loved being single, but I love being married and I think I chose the best partner a person could have. To summarize, in the past two… Continue reading Two years, Yo!
Z. and I sprung for some new travel gear for our grand Thailand adventure. If you are considering upgrading your travel gear, this is what we got, although I vote be able to vouch for it until we come home. The biggest item was our new travel backpacks. Guys, they are so awesome. I hope… Continue reading New Travel Gear
You guys will have to forgive me pre-planned posts this week (and probably next), but today Z. and I are off on our last fling before nursing school. We got a dog/house-sitter and set off to have a hopefully fabulous adventure. This is Z.’s first big travel adventure and I cannot wait to go on… Continue reading Thailand!
Today is my beloved’s birthday, not that we are celebrating today. As some of you may know, Z. is an accountant and this is a crazy, busy time of year. We celebrated a week early when we had *slightly* more breathing room. So how did we celebrate Z.’s birthday? It started in the morning. I… Continue reading Happy birthday, Z!
I began writing this post last semester, but it was too hard and personal at the time. Last semester, I flunked a test, actually two, then a third. I got a 70% and then a 57% and then, well, you get the idea. Three out of five tests down, and I was failing the class.… Continue reading Finding Grace in Failure
