Floor plans

It's almost February…

and I’ve been absent for most of January. It’s not because I’ve been omgsobusy because I haven’t been. It’s actually been incredibliy boring. Well, that’s not entirely true. I did turn 29 (and I’ll be 29 for the rest of my life if you’d like to know) and We put in an offer on a…

Anomalies of the North

Fish house colonies form on the lakes as soon as the ice is thick enough.  They remain for months.  Or at least until the annual ice fishing competition in February. Blue Moon is served in mason jars. It snows… And snows…   and snows some more.  And never melts.   And flannel is the uniform…

Insta Friday

Happy Insta Friday everyone. Hubs told Shiner it was too cold for her naked ass and took Sheldon outside to chase the bunnies in my mom’s backyard.  Homegirl diva dog DID NOT like that.  She stayed like this crying for them the whole time they were out there.  If she only knew she hated the…

The good news is, now that we have zero rent/mortgage payments, a lake house is in our near future. Our house in Houston closes on the…

No Longer a New Yorker

We made it to Minnesota in one piece. We moved out of our teeny Upper West Side apartment on Friday. I cried. A lot. When I walked through our empty apartment to shut off all the lights, I completely lost it. I walked out the front door of our building and a homeless man going…

Last Days in the City

It’s the final countdown. Friday is the day we don’t speak of. You guys, the amount of packing we have done is sad. Approximately, none if you were wondering. Even though we are currently buried in bubble wrap, we are still taking time to do a few last minute things in the city. Last week…
