46

Saturday was my birthday! I was kind of worried it would suck because, you know, the state of the world, but it was really lovely. I woke up early to do a class on my Peloton. Back in November or so, I set a goal of getting to 500 rides by my birthday. When I […]

2020, don’t let the door hit you on the way out

This is going to be a weird year-end recap. Let’s see. January I got to go to Lisbon! Thank god we planned our meetup for January, or my only trip (outside of Louisiana, anyway) in 2020 never would have happened. Also I turned 45 there. (My third birthday meetup since I started at Automattic.) The […]

Christmas 2020

Pre-Christmas: Our tradition of me taking each of the boys shopping and out to eat individually looked a little different this year. We weren’t going to leisurely peruse stores for gifts, and we weren’t going to be eating inside any restaurants. But we still had fun. Miles and I hit Target and then Five Guys. […]

Sewing project: Seamwork Camden

Apparently I’m really into sewing outerwear this year. See, when I was planning to make a coat, I wanted to make it out of teal wool. But I couldn’t find any teal wool that wouldn’t have cost an absolute fortune. So I went ahead and made it out of a cotton flannel, and I love […]

The back half of November

My sweet boys at the bus stop. An exquisite loaf of sourdough bread that I made for Thanksgiving. Recipe here. Grandee and Larry came for Thanksgiving. We had zero vegetables. Ziggy has been cute, as usual. We got our Christmas tree up! Random leftover photos. Finally got the fabric for my cape! I was going […]

It’s a good day

First, it’s our 15th anniversary. That’s a big deal, yeah? Multiple of 5? George got me a new Apple Watch, which is very exciting since my last one broke in January. And he got Apple Care on it so if it happens again I can get it fixed! 😀 Look how pretty! The only problem […]

Schitt’s Creek and stretchy clothes

For the past few months, my friend Mary Catherine has been selling these workout clothes as a little side gig. I like to support my friends (and I like new leggings for riding my Peloton) so I agreed to host a Zyia party over on Facebook. But my condition was that of course it had […]
