Disney Flower & Garden (and food!) – Friday

Doug and I enjoyed the Food & Wine festival at Epcot so much that when they added food to the Flower & Garden festival, I was able to talk him into going for a weekend. Much as I love cheering my friends, it was nice to go to Disney with no races and no real agenda. Other than to eat … Continue Reading →


Chris, who is one of our awesome professional photographers at work got a few pics of my with the JWST full-scale model at SXSW (at my request). Here they are! And yep, the real spacecraft will be this big!

US Capitol tour

Since I’m home sick I thought I would post some pictures! Janine currently works at the Capitol and had offered us a tour – and we finally took her up on it! I took lots of pics – except where I couldn’t take pics, which was in the actual House floor, where the State of the Union address happens. No … Continue Reading →

What I’ve Been Up To (April)

Here’s a bunch of pics, including a lot of spring flowers, cupcakes, and some pics of Willow. Here we go! Our crocuses started blooming pretty early this year and we had a lot of them. I love crocuses.

A few more Disney Princess Half pics

My friend Meredith got her photopass pics back and she’d added a few of the pics of Doug and I on Everest to them. I found the first one really funny because during the backwards part of the ride, I had a deathgrip on the bar behind my head. The second time I had my hands up. Here’s Conley and … Continue Reading →

Cherry Blossoms in DC

I’ve been meaning to post these for a while, and thought I would do it now. Doug and I went into DC to see the cherry blossoms. We don’t make it there every year (the window to see them is pretty small), but we thought we’d make an effort this time. We started out near the Jefferson where there are … Continue Reading →


Here are a few pics and stories from SXSW. The jist of what we were doing as NASA and JWST are in my blogs for Blueshift: http://astrophysics.gsfc.nasa.gov/outreach/podcast/wordpress/index.php/2013/03/08/jwst-sxsw/ http://astrophysics.gsfc.nasa.gov/outreach/podcast/wordpress/index.php/2013/03/09/maggies-blog-jwst-sxsw-part-2/ http://astrophysics.gsfc.nasa.gov/outreach/podcast/wordpress/index.php/2013/03/14/maggies-blog-jwst-sxsw-part-3/ But here are a few more things. A view of Baltimore from the air: The waffle wasn’t great, but it is in the shape of Texas! Our first day there (Friday) … Continue Reading →

Disney Princess Half Marathon – Sunday and Monday

Sunday morning we were up really early again to cheer for the half marathon runners. Amber’s shoulder was really hurting (she reinjured an old injury) so she didn’t run, and I tell you, I was never so happy to see her in my life as that morning. Because little Kayli had taken to her and with Mommy gone in the … Continue Reading →

Disney Princess Half Marathon – Saturday

Saturday morning was up early to cheer for our friends in the 5k. Since it’s a short race, we saw them at the start and finish. I like this pic of the start of Corral A: We didn’t realize it, but Sean Astin ran both races this weekend to get his coast to coast medal, which is cool. We saw … Continue Reading →

Disney Princess Half Marathon – Thursday, Friday

You can read more about her and Fiver’s Flamingos here: http://www.ailionora.com/2013/02/06/fivers-flamingos-2013/ A bunch of us stayed in the Polynesian this year – we got a good group rate and … Continue Reading →

What I’ve been up to… March

So I have a few photos from the last few months – the big thing, as I mentioned before was all the work my band did to finish our first album, which came out Feb 1st. I’m still really excited about it – and thank you again to those of you who have supported us and said nice things. It … Continue Reading →
