I betcha can’t tell what this post is about! 😉 Last weekend, I took over Derek’s house. Three of my friends and I took over the Albertson Homestead, and had a night full of books, tacos, drinks and Harry Potter. Derek not only let us take over his home (he headed to the cigar lounge for the night), but he set up a projector theater … Continue reading Derek 💙
On Saturday November 17, I flew to North Carolina for the start of a six day vacation. On Sunday November 18, while overlooking Cape Fear in Wilmington, NC, on the site that the rivercourt scenes of my favorite show One Tree Hill were filmed on, my mom called me and told me we were going to lose my favorite person on the planet – my … Continue reading 28.
My cousin Payton came to my house and helped me with a few things. When she noticed that I’d only blogged once all month long, she told me I needed to blog more.

Yesterday was Mother’s Day. I did the obligatory Facebook post complete with a picture of my mom & me. I’m not a big fan of rambling on Facebook. Every now and then I’ll have a slightly longer post (i.e. my Teacher’s Appreciation Day shoutout to my dad), but typically, I keep it short. Hence was the way with my Mother’s Day post. Yet as I … Continue reading Happy You Day, Mom! (Late)
Christmas is my favorite holiday. Actually, it’s my favorite day of the year if I’m being honest. The magic, the decorations, the lights, the FOOD!!! But my favorite part about Christmas is spending it with family. This year, we had celebrations for four days straight, because that’s how we do holidays.
