• What We've Been Up To

    So, what’s been happening? April-May 2014.

    Some of you may be familiar with these sporadic, “what we’ve been up to lately” posts. I write them to remind myself of precisely that, in the hopes that when people ask me I will actually have an answer and not just an awkward, “not much…you?” While my life isn’t overly exciting (I haven’t trekked Everest or saved any orphan dolphins lately), it is full. So here goes… (and please try to ignore the fact that I last did a March-April post and that it overlaps with April-May and I will try to get everything in order at some point but truly who cares because it’s my blog haha) Easter.…

    How I feel about 30.

    image Yesterday┬áI turned 30. I know I’m supposed to laugh nervously and say, “Oooh scary!” But I’m not scared. Or joke about it being the somethingth anniversary of my 21st or mumble my age like I’m embarrassed. But I’m not embarrassed. I’m excited. The 30 year old me is a better me. A wiser me.

I feel like I can welcome my 30s feeling more…

    image I did something really wild and crazy yesterday. I think it’s because I’m 30 in a few days. Who knows. Anyhow… It all started a few nights ago. Mr Unprepared and I decided to climb into bed and watch The Tourist. The movie with Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp (a film with something for everyone *wink wink*). Now, I don’t know if you’ve seen the movie, but the opening scenes involve English subtitles because parts of them are spoken in French. We don’t have a very big TV. In fact, it’s an old little Panasonic fat backed thing with a set top box to make it watchable, because we’re…

    Today is brought to you by the number 30 (and some very bad Wikipedia facts).

    Pic This post is dedicated to my husband. Great gift idea, right? He’ll thank me later, I’m sure. Well, pretty sure… The reason? Today he turns the big 3-0. That’s right. He’s been alive for three decades. He’s halfway to 60, so yeah, that’s pretty impressive. Also, he will always be 2 years older than me and I quite like that. He breaks in all of the scary ages before I get there so it’s not so scary. OK… also I like it because I get to make fun of him forever. Old fart. I like today because for all of 2012, he has been very quick to point out,…
