Turning 2!

Birthday cake time!

Happy birthday, Coolguy! This kid is our light. He’s made everything better and given us 1) a whole new perspective on life; 2) the realization that sleep deprivation is a powerful torture mechanism; and 3) filled our (previously grey & withered) hearts with love. Anyway I’ll hush up now. I just like this guy a bunch and can’t believe it’s been two years since my bladder worked properly. Love you, kid!

Wise words: Free yourself from negative people

I don’t share things like this here often (you see enough of them on Facebook), however this one explains why I refuse to spend time with people who suck the life out of me: I feel like everyone should adhere to this rule as much as is within their control. Your life spans a short time, and you don’t need to spend it with people who guilt trip or demand your time without contributing anything positive in return. You need to spend it with the … Continue reading

OtterBox for S4 — Now I can drop my phone all the time, EVEN MORE!

It only took about four smaller dents and one giant ding on the side of of my phone — as well as the two swims in the toilet I’m forever mentioning — for me to decide to invest in some kind of cellular phone protection contraption. Unwilling to spend good money, as usual, I scoured the WWW for the best deal on an Otterbox. And I found a pretty great one! Now, this design is not waterproof like the Armor Series (which I’m not sure they have for S4 … Continue reading

ONE. OF. US! — On My Transition to Wearing Leggings

Those who know me know a few things. One you might not know as a reader is that I am not very girly. I know, I know. Hard to believe. However, being full of a baby does interesting things to the tightly-held perspectives you’ve had for so long. For one, it made me like the idea of having kids one day — something I had never even considered realistically, if I’m being honest, but now am really excited for. Secondly, I love telling people stories … Continue reading

DIY: From Old Dresser to Pretty Vintage Bench

Holy cow! Remember when I said we were going to do a DIY using an old dresser we found on the side of the road? No? Me neither, almost. Except that it’s been in the basement all summer long (oops), staring and waiting for us to hop to it. Hey, we got married this year. As it turns out, that kept us busy this spring. Well, this past weekend we got to it. And as you can imagine from the blog title, we didn’t just … Continue reading

Ermagerd! My Gardens!

I’ve been hanging out a lot in the garden since we got home from our honeymoon. At first it wasn’t by choice. Apparently when it rains for a week straight, you come home to a lot of weeding. (Amazingly, though we stayed within the province, none of that rain actually hit us til the last day of our trip.) As I pulled all the junk out of that garden, I realized digging around in dirt is one of my favourite things now. I’m old. The … Continue reading

Baaaaaaaack!

We had the most wonderful time at our wedding. It goes without saying that emotions ran high and we had the best day ever, despite anything we might have forgotten in all the chaos. It was such a strange thing to have so many of the people we appreciate and love in one place. There is so much to say about it, but I won’t. Thank you to everyone who made the trek, extra long or short-to-moderate to come out and help make it such … Continue reading

On The Day Before I’m Married

I will have no time to write this tomorrow, so here it is. May 31 is my last day, in my entire life, of being an unmarried woman. When I was a kid, I never imagined having a wedding. I imagined my story would be much like an Enquirer cover blurb I once saw proclaiming that Loni Anderson had proposed to Burt Reynolds. It would be like that, except that the guy would make me kiss him but then instead choose my weird friend who … Continue reading
