What I was up to – May 2018

Onwards to May. We had a safety inspection at work. Redbuds! Someone made this with those little word magnets: Shiny! Stirfry noodles made with veggies from our hungry harvest box! Hungry Harvest is cool – it’s a subscription box of fruits and veggies that are “rescued” from being thrown out. They grew too much, too big, too small, etc. But … 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.

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.

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.

It was great catching up, though … Continue Reading →


What I Was Up To – November 2017

And here we are in November. At the beginning of the month, just 20 days away from my due date, we all went to Friday lunch at Hard Times Cafe. Then we got on the Beltway to head back to work. Only to get stuck on the on-ramp in traffic. For two hours. I did not give birth in my … Continue Reading →


What I Was Up to – October 2017

October brought more work on the baby room. Willow was still convinced that it was her new room. October also brought the promotion of one of my dearest friends. Janine is now a Lt Colonel in the USMC, which is a huge accomplishment. I am so so proud of her, and how she is using her career to better the … Continue Reading →

Let’s see what was going on in September! These butterfly pics were actually from the very end of August. The cat really likes our laundry. The dahlias looked pretty good this year!

What I Was Up To – July 2017

July 1st, we did our annual Laurel fireworks with our friends. They always have a nice display and it’s almost never the same day as the DC ones. Kitty toes. She has red nails because we’ve had to put nail covers on her to keep her from scratching her ears. For the 4th we met Sean and Ed in DC. … Continue Reading →
