Until It Rhymes With Thorteen…

Our sweet 3 ft tree. Our sweet 3 ft tree.

This is my last post of 2013, wahhh, waaahhh!!  (That’s me crying because taking a break from all of you means I’m sad enough to sit hovering over my keyboard in a puddle. Or something like that.) As an artistic freak person, I like to keep things fresh and challenging, which means sometimes I need a break to recharge my batteries.  Also, how do you expect me to talk about the relationships in my life if I’m not out living them!?!?  Just kidding. So the title of this post?  It means we Read more […]

We Bought a Camera Just Because

We bought a new camera!  And it’s pretty spectacular.  It’s this one, specifically.   It has a really long name, Sony NEX- 5RK… but it’s a DSLR and it’s pretty bad-ass.  The Scottish has always been interested in photography and has wanted a nicer camera for some time now.  We decided to take advantage of credit card points and after Thanksgiving sales to purchase this bad boy and we’re glad we did. What does this mean for you?  Well hopefully better quality photos on the Read more […]

Celebrating My Awesomeness

In case you missed yesterday’s Debbie Downer post about all my failures, you can catch up here.  Now it’s time for a list of my 2013 successes! 2013 Adult Successes Preparing dinner five nights a week- I know I mentioned here that I was sucking at being a stay at home wife but huzzah, times have changed.  I now have a plan and dinner on the table every night, and granted the meals I make are simple enough for an 8-year-old to master, but still, The Scottish is not complaining.  And we’re Read more […]

I know it’s the season to count your blessings and soon everyone in the blogosphere will be making new year’s resolutions, but before I can make any new goals I need to assess my recent failures.  I don’t know about you but there’s nothing more depressing to me than reading about someone else’s laundry list of successes.  I’m all, “Good for you and blah blah blah.  I suck.” We’ve all had our share of disappointments this year and things that just didn’t happen.  I’m here to say that’s OK.

Could I BE any more of a grown-up?

I was thinking the other day, what’s the one thing I have yet to do as a full-fledged adult? Travel?  Nope.  BEEN THERE.  DONE THAT.  I’ve seen almost half of the entire United Kingdom.  Impressive, I know. Do something dangerous?  Does white water rafting and almost being killed by a horse count?  OK, so the horse didn’t almost kill me but I can’t remember being as terrified as I was while on that hill surrounded by horses that refused to stay on the trail and a hung over guide. Get Read more […]

DramaLite: High School Puke

Posted by & filed under All About Me, Blushworthy, DramaLite, Humor.

I feel like it’s been FOREVER since I’ve posted a DramaLite so I have an especially embarrassing one to share today. First the back story: I am deathly afraid of vomit.  It’s not that I’m one of those people who throw up if they’re around someone who pukes, it’s that I hyperventilate and have a mild panic attack.  I find I’m most terrified when I’m in a small enclosed space and someone needs to throw up.  Most of the time, no one is actually going throw up BUT I have been in a van with a bunch Read more […]

My Made-up Rivalry

Posted by & filed under All About Me, Humor, Relationships General.

I totally remember working on that giraffe!! I totally remember working on that giraffe!!

The theme for this week’s “Remember the Time” is RIVALRY, a concept I know all too well.  As an actor and now a blogger, I’ve become an expert at comparing myself to others over the years.  Not to mention there’s no rivalry like the one between sisters, but to avoid beating a dead horse, I’m going to branch out a bit for today’s topic. My earliest rivalry was one I created myself with the girl across the street.  We’ll call her K, because duh, every other girl in my year was named some Read more […]

Way To Go Weekend

Hi Friends! For me, blogging is mostly about producing quality, well-thought out, and unique content, which tends to lead to many lengthy and long-winded posts.  However, I also believe another perk of blogging is the ability to post quickly and spontaneously with a simple message. This is a new feature I’m trying out and the message is TGIF essentially.  I’ll share something going on in my life and post a pic or two while wishing you all a happy weekend.  Let’s begin. The Scottish and Read more […]
