Hi Everybody!  Happy Halloween! This weeks’s Remember the Time theme is HALLOWEEN. Duh. This year was a bit of a wash for us because the party we were going to attend ended up being canceled.  The theme was to dress up as your favorite SNL character, and our plan was to go as Wayne and Garth from Wayne’s World.  I have a feeling we would have NAILED IT, but since that didn’t happen, let’s take a look at some previous costume failures ideas. Three years ago The BFF was in town visiting Read more […]

BME’s Greatest Hits

Posted by & filed under All About Me, The Dramatic Arts, The Glue, The Sister.

Didn’t I mention I’d share one of my band’s songs with you lovely readers?  Oh yea, when I first told you guys I was in a band I said I’d try to find some of our music.  Well, success!  The Father, an avid reader of Drama Happens, was kind enough to help me out and instead of just one song, I have TWO whole songs to share! BME’s internet debut has arrived.  (I’m giddy with excitement and iced vanilla latte jitters.) Remember we do covers of songs and these were recorded many moons ago in Read more […]

Scotland 202 Scotland 202

I loathe rule-breaking and I’m not very good at it in general.  Pretty sure it has something to do with being an oldest child and the fact that The Mother is one of the most perfect human beings you’ll ever meet.  We like order and structure and we never dismiss a traffic sign.  The Scottish is pretty similar, except for blatantly drinking in bars before he was legal, but then again, that’s just what you did in the UK. The Remember the Time theme this week is to share the time you broke a Read more […]

DramaLite: High School

Thongs really became THE popular underwear for girls when I was in high school.  You weren’t cool unless you were wearing thongs. Never mind that our Dad had to do our laundry most of the time, The Sister and I bought copious amounts of them when we were younger. One day (either in my sophomore or junior year) I was wearing this rather short dress to school with none other than a thong underneath it and some sheer pantyhose (Oh pantyhose, how uncool you really are).  Apparently when I put Read more […]

You now how some people miss their single life once they’re in a serious relationship?  Ya, well I’m not one of those people.  I know for some folks “checking in” with someone is super annoying, or sharing each other’s stress just becomes exhausting.  The Scottish will even admit that he misses his days of binge drinking (just a little) pre-Stephanie.  But I don’t miss any of it.  I love being married and I love being in a partnership. Maybe I love it so much because I didn’t lose anything Read more […]

Hi everybody!  As you might recall, my 30th birthday was this past Friday, October 4th, and wow, I’m STILL recovering!  It’s amazing what one glass of wine lots of surprises can do to an old person like myself!  I meant to get this post up yesterday but sometimes life gets in the way of your plans and you have to go with the flow so I did just that. The BFF and The Scottish did an amazing job making me feel extra special this past weekend but it came at the expense of a series of bold faced Read more […]

Laura is 26! 024 Laura is 26! 024

Don’t mind if I do start this Friday off with a congratulations to myself.  Thankyouverymuch.  🙂 Sometimes when you turn the dirty thirty your BFF will drive into town to celebrate it with you! The BFF and I have been long distance for our entire 11 year friendship minus the first six months.  Crazy right?  We never forget a birthday and we’ve managed to spend many of them together despite the miles between us. Birthday tiara! Never fear friends, my expectations are low and my Read more […]

“Some of you want an easy life. You should leave right now.”

Time for the blog hop post of the week!  The theme is Remember the Time… we had that teacher. I’m so excited for this prompt because I LOVE teachers and I come from a family of them, The Mother, The Sister, and The Glue are all inspiring the minds of young people as I type this.  Growing up, I had many quality teachers but not surprisingly I can’t remember most of their names or even what they looked like.  My memory is that bad. I DO remember that my kindergarten teacher was named Mrs. Read more […]

A Guest Post Surprise

Posted by & filed under All About Me, Blogging, Guest Post.

Hey everybody!  I have news!  But first, a quiz… If you had to guess where I have guest blog post up today which one would you choose: A) a home improvement blog B) a mommy blog C) a fitness blog D) a recipe blog If you picked C, you are correct!  If you picked anything else, you’re mostly just shocked. I know it makes more sense for me to guest post at a cupcake eating blog than a fitness blog, but sometimes the world is cray-cray. That’s right, I wrote a blog post about Read more […]

Lowering Those Birthday Expectations

Posted by & filed under All About Me, Relationships General, The BFF, The City, The Scottish.


My birthday is coming up on October 4th and I will be turning the big 3-0 this year.  I haven’t exactly kept this a secret and I like to remind folks whenever I get the chance.  I’m not even opposed to the number 30 itself, even though I feel like I should be.  It helps that I’ve heard people say their 30’s are far superior to their 20’s.  Instead of discovering one’s self and making loads of mistakes, one tends to be more settled and happy with the direction their life has gone. For reasons Read more […]
