get brunked…old school style

When I decide to throw calorie counting to the winds, I like to do it in a highly visible, extremely obnoxious fashion. I bring you: karaoke night at our favorite divey karaoke bar from back in the day. Similar to the monthly coffee date, last night was a wonderfully long walk down memory lane, in… Continue reading get brunked…old school style

the waaaaaayyy we weeeeeerrrrrreeeeee…

I've been thinking a lot lately about both the "good old days" (90s anyone?) and the bonds between people, specifically between me and my friends and family. Have you ever felt like suddenly all the people your life seemed to revolve around - or at least, orbit most of the time - are suddenly off… Continue reading the waaaaaayyy we weeeeeerrrrrreeeeee…

the fair! the fair!

For those of you that don't live in the Pacific Northwest, you might not know about the wonderful over-packed-ness that is the Washington State Fair. Also, previously known as the Puyallup Fair, which I can only assume they changed since no one from out of state could pronounce it. For those not from here, that's pronounced… Continue reading the fair! the fair!

well, i did it. i was a big weepy mess, but i did it.

Before you ask, yes, this is about my beloved grandma. Last post about it, I promise. And also: family. And, being brave. My grandma's funeral was today. It was amazing to see everyone and hear all the ways she touched people's lives. I learned a bunch of things, actually, that I never knew about the… Continue reading well, i did it. i was a big weepy mess, but i did it.
