Monthly Archives: September 2012

One of these days my life will settle a bit so that I can post as regularly as I would like. My excuse his time is that I got a new job! A real, grown-up job doing something that I will actually enjoy — social media marketing! So that’s exciting. And once I get more into the swing of things (I’ve only been at it two weeks) I should be more able to post as often as I would like.

I have lots of post ideas I’ve been saving up, but today I was thinking we could do something we haven’t done in a bit: a favorites list.

Pittsburgh. Such a cool place. Such a fun trip. Such a great time with my sweetie and his awesome family. I can’t wait to go back.

— Did I mention I got to see a polar bear while in Pittsburgh. I GOT TO SEE A POLAR BEAR IN PITTSBURGH. This was a big deal, you guys.

— All of the faces on this website, and this one, have been haunting my dreams. I really want a dog.  Wallace The Cat really needs a sibling. (Both are true, I just feel like I might be able to justify it more if I get a dog for Wallace rather than one for me.) Take a look and see if you might be able to be a forever home for one of these sweet babies!

— The girl in this picture with me is my sister. She turned fourteen this month, which makes me feel old. I love her more than I love coffee.

This video.

This recipe.

This show. It is available on Amazon Prime Instant View. It is possibly the best television program I’ve ever seen. Watch it.

That’s all for now! I’ll see you soon with a new post!




Hello from Pittsburgh! The Boy and I left Atlanta yesterday to come visit his family. I am writing from the sofa of his childhood home with him on one side of me, his childhood best friend on the other, three beagles flopped in the floor, and a comic book video game on the television.

It’s been a lovely visit — lots of time with his parents (who are delightful), meeting his sister (who is expecting her first baby!), her husband, and the grandparents — and we still have two and half days left! Today I was given a tour of Pittsburgh via car, the incline, and my feet. I took the opportunity to make some photographs, partly to document the trip and also because Pittsburgh’s architecture is fantastic.

So, today’s FPF is one of my photos! I found it while walking around so I stored it in my camera just for you guys :)

They don’t call it the City of Bridges for nothing

Exploring a new place with good company on a beautiful day is my kind of Friday.

How was your Friday? Have any exciting plans for the weekend? Tell us about it!

Wishing you a happy weekend,
