I’m all wedding-ed out

Houston and I have been to more weddings this year than I can count on my fingers. The funny thing is, 10:1 of them have been his friends getting hitched, not mine. Finally, last weekend, we went to the wedding of one of my friends. Better than friend, she is my Big Sis! And no, I did not spontaneously spawn an older sister–she’s my Big…

Women vs. Men

I find it interesting that women complain on and on about the burden of being female: menstruation, menopause, childbirth, breastfeeding, osteoporosis, etc. But aside from autoimmune diseases, women really have it a lot better than men. Here’s why. Women live longer than men. Known fact. We enjoy more sunrises & sunsets, and more time with our kids & grandkids. But yes, we miss you men when…

Oh, so you want an update do you?

Things have been pretty stressful since the move. The house is coming together, slowly but surely. Yesterday I lugged the boxes I broke down up to the attic for storage, and finally tackled the room I’d been dreading: my teeny closet. Dreading, because it is about 1/4th the size of my closet at the Valencia, and trying to unpack boxes within this teeny closet was…

Bleh….I’m tired!

Hotel ZaZa was amazing. I will write more on that amazing stay later because it deserves its own post. Fabulous. Love love love. On the other hand, Sunday I moved in. Took the movers 3.5 hours but my shit is finally in the house. Unpacking it, however, will take…forever. I don’t even have internet right now but I am successfully using my iPhone’s 3G by…

Convert Tumblr blog to WordPress

I have successfully migrated my tumblelog over to WordPress.  This was brought upon by my redesign (and conversion to WP from MovableType) of my mother’s website and blog.  Today, I wanted to find her a new hosting provider, as ours was so antiquated that she was paying more than others do today for less features. So, we migrated over to DreamHost, and it’s a pretty…

Boyfriends are great cooks

Look at what my boyfriend can whip up easy peasy. I tell you, boys are so much more talented at cooking than are girls. This meal was scrumptious!

Entryway Project

Behold my entryway project! And it only took a year of indecision and tightfistedness to complete. Actually, I did complete this on a very tight budget. The lovely piece of furniture (call it what you will) you see here is actually a closet module by ClosetMaid, for $24.99 (on sale $5 off from $29.99) at Target. The cake stand (used as a change/key holder/carryall and…
