Mom visited! We ate Mexican food! I walked the dogs!




(We also did some yardwork, but I’ll wait until some things start blooming before subjecting you to dirt photos. Until then just dogs and food probably.)

Happy Wednesday! I hope you are having a great week so far. I just learned I get a 3 day weekend so I’m planning all sorts of ways to spend it. Ideas so far include sleeping, dog walking, catching up on past newspapers and snacking. Maybe I’ll catch up on fashion week from the comfort of my couch.Β I can feel your jealousy through the internet.


On Thursday before I went to work we went out to a new place for breakfast. Our usual crepe place doesn’t open until late, so we were forced to branch out. It was great.



I refuse to take pictures of my food because I think it’s a little weird, but here’s a few reasons why I liked this place. Dev got a pretty good veggie scramble and I had a breakfast sandwich with morning star patties. I love fake meat so much more than real meat lately, so this made me really happy. Then, our check came with Andes mints!!! Below fortune cookies and slightly above cinnamon discs, the best check candy is Andes. You know they’re not just giving you that weird leftover Halloween junk and that they but it special from Costco just for you, the customer. I will definitely be coming back. Plus they have milkshakes and beer.

I came home to all this sweet stuff today.






Oh PS we’re dog sitting for a few weeks. He’s a little tired from a long day of finding laps to sit on.

Happy Birthday MIL!


Happy belated New Year! So far 2013 has been pretty great. We’re in the process of wrangling our thousands of personal photos to one place which is a little more complex than I would have imagined. Here are some that I’ve managed to get my mitts on of some random stuff we’ve been doing lately. You’ll quickly learn that our new favorite family hobby is the dog. Sorry.

3 medals, 3 PRs. 39.3 miles total. Also, I look gross.
3 sweaty, gross and smiley girls who just PR’d.



Tonight we’re going to MIL’s birthday dinner and then coming home to be bummed about the weekend being over. I’ll tell you all about it later.

Apologies for taking most of 2011 off from le blog (unintentionally) but to make it up to you I have a list.

General Life Updates

-We moved.
-We have jobs.

Sometimes it is difficult to get out of bed in the morning.
