Godzilla and My Popular Blog

Godzilla and My Popular Blog

For the past several weeks, I have seen a soaring in the number of hits that my blog has gotten. I went from averaging about 40-50 hits a day to over 150 a day – consistently. It was outrageous.  As the self-proclaimer that I am, I spread the word to everyone I knew that I had the most popular blog on earth. I was picturing book deals here, people. Then, Chris pointed out that the majority of my hits during this two week period were coming from Google searches. And…

He Graduated!

He Graduated!

After 3 years of grad school, I am so proud to say that Chris has finally graduated from the Yale School of Drama! WOO HOO!!! I have ever been more proud of anyone in my entire life. And to make this time even more special for him so many special people showed up to support him throughout the weekend. Other than my own wedding day, I have never felt so much love in one place before. Family and friends really went above and beyond to rain down love on both…

Disney World and the Ivy League

Disney World and the Ivy League

This weekend is Yale’s Commencement weekend.  Aside from weddings, Chris, and s’mores, graduations are just about my most favorite thing in the world.  I love them.  All those people there to celebrate the hard work that people have put into their degrees – just makes me happy inside.  And it makes me cry.  I’m a crier at graduations.  I’ll cry even if I don’t know anyone whose graduating.  I once cried at a televised graduation ceremony for some college out in Arizona (it was on Oprah).  They just make me…

Here Comes the Bride, Again, and Again, and Again…

Here Comes the Bride, Again, and Again, and Again…

‘Tis the season of bridal showers, three-tiered cakes, and crying flower girls.  Last week alone we received four invitations to weddings and one invitation to a shower.  Now, I love weddings.  Any excuse to get all dolled up, cry in public, and eat bacon wrapped scallops and cake is fine by me.  But, come on brides!  Lets get our schedules together here! The bad thing is that all of these weddings are people that we really can’t say no to.  One is Chris’ old college roommate, one is one of…

Ode To Dirty Husbands

Ode To Dirty Husbands

A co-worker called me today to see if my husband had been at the gym around 10:30 AM. Knowing that Chris practically has an allergic reaction every time the topic of gyms/diets/healthy living/green beans comes up, I confidently replied that, no, Chris had not been at the gym this morning. “Strange,” said my co-worker. “Because there was a guy there that was built similarly to Chris and he had paint in his hair so I was almost positive that had to be him.” I hung up the phone and immediately…

Pass the Cheese, Please!

Pass the Cheese, Please!

Last weekend we had a huge BBQ at our house to celebrate the end of the year with Chris’ classmates. Lots of people. Lots of beer. Lots of meat. Lots of fun. And apparently, lots of cheese. Tonight as I was going through our fridge trying to find something for dinner, I came across a 5 lb. bag of shredded cheese that someone left. Let me say that again, a 5 LB. BAG OF SHREDDED CHEESE. Who buys a 5 LB. BAG OF SHREDDED CHEESE?!? And how do you forget…

Landlords

Landlords

Maybe its because we’re so close to owning our own home. Maybe its because I’m home dying from a cold. Maybe its because I don’t want to clean my house. For whatever reason, I have decided today, actually about 5 minutes ago, that I do not like my landlords. Sure, they’re nice enough. But they just barge into our house at any given time. And lately they have been bringing their entire families – including a month old infant, a 2 year old, a grandmother, and their dog. They sometimes…

Home is Where the Dogs Live

Home is Where the Dogs Live

Well, Dear Readers, here it is. Our house. Our cute, little, cape cod house in Connecticut. Isn’t it just the most adorable thing in the world? It’s like a little piece of heaven in Stratford, CT. Its a great house, but I had no idea how much you had to go through before buying a house. Have you ever had that dream where you’re standing naked in front of a crowd of people? That’s pretty much what a mortgage approval feels like. You basically go to a bank, meet with…
