    Very CNC

    July 19, 2010


    As I was uploading my photos into Ecto for this post, I realized that it was very Carrots ‘N’ Cake-like. It starts with a healthy salad, ends with dessert, and there’s a cute pug in the middle. Doesn’t it just scream CNC?!? ๐Ÿ˜‰ After a 4.5-hour bus ride home from NYC, Mal picked me up […]



    I can’t believe my weekend in Vermont is all over. How sad. ๐Ÿ˜ฅ BUT, Mal and I already have a plan in the works to visit again this fall. Hopefully, I can make it until then! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Breakfast After a late-night of partying, we ended up sleeping in a little bit. Once we got moving, […]


    Lazy Pants McGee

    July 15, 2010


    Murphy has a lot of nicknames: Turd Ferguson (or just “Turd” for short) Gremlin Piranha Brickhead (Mal calls him this) Lazy Pants McGee Today, he’s been Lazy Pants McGee all day long. Murphy even slept while sitting in my lap. Well, sorta. Snack Mid-morning, my stomach started to grumble, so I made half of wrap […]

    Acting Childish

    July 13, 2010


    This afternoon, Mal and I received the best anniversary card in the mail from my mom. It pretty much sums up our marriage! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Inside, it says: “Making faces behind the back of whoever’s acting childish helps, too.” Love it! Mal and I are always acting childish and goofy together. I swear, we act like […]


    It’s Really Happening

    July 12, 2010


    Woah. Monday is really flying by for me! I’m not complaining since I am getting a lot done and we’re that much closer to the weekend, but, jeez, where did the hours go!?! (Is it bad that I’m already looking forward to next weekend? ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) Lunch Lunch was fast, simple, and especially delicious this […]



    My husband is awesome, but he sometimes forgets to tell me about plans he’s made for the two of us– like today, for instance, when he told his friend we’d go on his boat. I’m not complaining (boating + friends is lots of fun), but I was sure surprised when Mal told me this at […]
