Christmas Eve Throwdown in the Chapel

A few posts ago I mentioned that I have a habit of getting involved in disputes with strangers. I am fully aware of this and it’s something that I kinda sorta maybe sometimes try not to do. But let me assure you, the fight I got into at the Christmas Eve church service I went…

Bah Humbug at the Post Office

I have a habit of interjecting myself into disputes with strangers that I don’t directly have anything to do with. I can’t help it! When I see something unjust happening, the Aries in me kicks in and I just have to get involved. Remember that time I threw ice cream at a woman? Cant.Help.It. Yesterday…

Flawed (only sometimes I’m not perfect)

“What is your worst quality?” The question feels like one you are asked in a job interview, where your answer is something carefully crafted and practiced in front of the bathroom mirror. Your answer to this question sounds like a flaw on the surface, but it is really designed to make your interviewer see what…

Redefining “Mother-in-Law”

When my friends tell stories about their terrible mothers-in-law, I laugh and pretend to understand their pain. I can commiserate, as I also have some difficult people in my life, but my mother-in-law, Virginia, just doesn’t happen to be one of them. With all of these mother-in-law horror stories, I have to wonder, how did I…

Bath Salts and Barbecue Sauce

Often times while standing in the line at the grocery store, I watch the cashier with an envious eye. I have no desire to stand in one spot for 8 hours while scanning and bagging food, but I do love the idea of getting to see what everyone is buying. I’ll admit it, I’m pretty…

Facebreak

One week ago I decided to deactivate my Facebook account. This may seem like a meaningless action to many, but it was actually a pretty big decision for me. For seven years now, I have logged onto this crack-like website every single day to see what my “friends” have been up to (read: stalk the…

Irrational Fears

Irrational fears are something I spent a good portion of my time in therapy talking about. After a few months and several hundred dollars, my irrational fears no longer caused panic attacks and I was even able to laugh at them! Sometimes I catch myself slipping into my old way of thinking, which is to…

‘Tis the Season of Defriending, Fa La La La La La La La La

It’s officially getting into the holiday season, ya’ll! The last few weeks I have been observing my own personal holiday. It is called “defriend Facebook friends who make ignorant posts, especially regarding our current President or any of the candidates running for Presidency.” I have “defriended” close to 20 people. Another 20 or so have…

Weekend Recap

This weekend was exactly what I needed after my tear-filled Friday. I slept until almost 1pm on Saturday, ate BBQ, visited the in-laws, went hiking, did a family/maternity photo shoot, went wedding suit shopping with Isaac, and we booked our Honeymoon! Here are a few pictures from the over 400 that I took this weekend.

Happy Birthday, Dad!

Happy Birthday to a guy who can fight with the best …and party with the rest I love you, Dad! Happy Birthday!  Here are just a few of the reasons I love him (post from Father’s Day awhile ago)
