Star Wars Costumes at AwesomeCon

They had a nice display of Star Wars costumes from The Last Jedi at AwesomeCon. Here you go! I took a ton of Rey, trying to catch seams and such. Also: We took this one for Jen! Luke:


AwesomeCon 2018

AwesomeCon was in late March this year. I decided to just do one day, and meet Gloria for Outlander costuming, and check out the Artist Alley since I had a couple of friends with tables there. We decided not to bring Elena since it was the tail end of flu season, which wasn’t great this year. The most surreal part … Continue Reading →


Cherry Blossom Weekend

We got the gang back together this past spring for the Cherry Blossom 10 miler. It was a nice chance to see old race friends we don’t get to see that often, and for them to meet Elena. Janine also threw Ron a surprise birthday party, which was pulled off perfectly! We started off the weekend by Conley, Doug, and … Continue Reading →


Elena’s First Snow

I haven’t done much baby posting for a bunch of reasons, but I had to post a couple of these because they crack me up. We had a late snow day in March, so we bundled Elena up and took her out into her first real snow, and I was super excited for her to experience it. She was not … Continue Reading →


Francaise Dinner 2018

Ah yes. Francaise Dinner 2018. Also coincident with #babyplague2018. This year, the Franchise dinner was hosted by Jessica, and was back at Gadsbys Tavern in Alexandria. I had talked my friend Get into coming down and staying with us, seeing the baby, and coming to the dinner. We started off the weekend with a nice dinner out – unfortunately late … Continue Reading →


Graffiti Warehouse

Here are photos of the Graffiti Warehouse in Baltimore, where I attended a DC Cosplay photoshoot. This place was amazing and I’m so glad I got the chance to see it! Here is fence and the alleyway outside. The gate again: Inside the ground floor: 2nd floor: The 2nd floor had incredible murals: 3rd floor: I’m not sure if this … Continue Reading →


Grit – DC Cosplay Photoshoot

Long time no update – which is really more work related than baby related, though the combo has me pretty busy. And I’m once again massively behind on blogging stuff. So let’s just just back to March, shall we? I attended a DC Cosplay photoshoot at the Graffiti Warehouse in Baltimore with friends – mainly because I had heard of … Continue Reading →


What I was Up to – February 2018, part 2

February, part 2: Some late February snow in Pittsburgh. We visited for the weekend so Elena could meet her other set of grandparents. It was our first trip with the baby too and it went pretty smoothly except for one poopsplosion: We saw my parents not long after. And while eating with them next to the Starbucks, I somehow ended … Continue Reading →


What I was up to – February 2018, part 1

February part 1! I might have also bought this glow in the dark Marauder’s Map pillow from Pottery Barn. We didn’t go to our Superbowl Party either this year because the baby was so young and we didn’t want to expose her to germs and she couldn’t be vaccinated against flu, she was too young. And we’d caught the flu … Continue Reading →


What I Was Up to – January 2018

January – look, we made it to 2018! There was so much food this month! Conley came down for a visit in January and she was kind enough to babysit for us, so we could go to my company holiday party. This is the party that has the scavenger hunt that gets increasingly serious every year, with people bringing bags … Continue Reading →


What I Was Up To – December 2017

Moving on to December! One of our co-workers, Stephanie, left for another job, so we had a goodbye lunch for her. The baby was only a week old at this point, but my sister in law was here helping out, and Doug was still home, so I got to join my friends for lunch! It was great catching up, though … Continue Reading →


First Aid Kit

First Aid Kit is one of my most favorite bands, and they were playing in DC at the Lincoln Theater in December. I bought the tix while pregnant and figured I’d figure out babysitters or something, and as it worked out, rather than babysitting, Janine came with me. Doug didn’t mind sitting out the concert (he’s not super into them), … Continue Reading →
