The hubs and I bought a house, and I will be writing about our progress here:

Things They Don't Tell You About In Pre-Marital Counseling

A few weeks ago Jono and I were on a weekend trip to celebrate our anniversary. We were all dressed up and on our way to see Les Miserables, desperately looking for a place to park. I was a little stressed out about making it on time, so I would point and yell when I thought I saw a space while at the same time trying to apply makeup.

Prepared much?

Anyway, despite the numerous other distractions I realized quickly that something in that mirror was amiss.

"OHMYGOSH! There is a giant, awful, gnarly black hair growing out of my chin!!!!"
"um, ok."
"Aaaaaaaah, Jono! Aaaah!!!"
"What do you MEAN 'what'?? I have a gnarly hair!"
"Ok. Is that a parking spot over there?"
"How can you be so calm! I am 25, what is happening to me? DID YOU KNOW I HAD THIS HAIR HERE???"
"Well, I saw it the other day, but I didn't think much of it."
"Because it's not gnarly, and I didn't care."
"Ohmygosh, I can't get it out. I can't get it out!"
"It's not that long. Where should we park?"
"I CAN'T GET IT OUT. Pull it out for me!"
"Um...I could...but you won't like it. It would hurt."
"Are you JOKING!? Just get it out!!!"

A few moments later the hair was gone.

A few moments after that, I realized my pride was, too.

"Um...this probably isn't what you thought you were signing up for three years ago, huh?"
"I love you."

What a guy.

Blogging 2: The Return of Mediocrity

For no reason in particular, I decided to try out this blogging thing again. I think mostly I want to chronicle things in my life a bit better than I do now. You know...not so much the "deardiarytodayistubbedmytoeanditreallyhurtanddoesheatherwanttobefriendsanymore?" kind of chronicling. Maybe more like the "this is the funny thing that happened" or "it took a gazillion years but finally I let God teach me this" kind of stuff.

So here I go. Read if you like it. Remove it from your Reader if you don't. :)

Before and...Now

This is a picture of my darling husband and me in December.

This was a little before I saw a certain tv show with a certain character. And while I've always loved the beard, I thought maybe, just maybe, the hubbers could rock a new look.
So, here he is on our anniversary last month...

Personally, I think it agrees with him. :)

It isn't complete, though, until it's pony-tail-possible.

HP Love!

You know that most magical of places? This place right here?

I get to go there.

And Magic Kingdom. And Epcot.

I might just pee myself with excitement, buy some souvenir Mickey pajama pants, then pee myself again.

Fake V-Day

Jono doesn't like Valentine's Day (and I can't blame him so much), but I always want to cash in on an excuse to have a date with my hubbers. So we agreed upon a sort of compromise and went out on Friday, missing out on the true Valentine's Day crazy-busy-ness. :)

We headed to KC and went to The Melting Pot.

It. Was. Amazing.


At the end Jono deemed it his all time best eating experience. That will be a tough one to top, for sure.

Disaronno in white chocolate? Have mercy!

Just Dance!

I love, love, love this game.

I played it at a friends house and then immediately bought it with my birthday gift card (thanks Mom and Dad!). It is seriously SO fun.

I'm not sure if there's anything better than watching my super white friends (me included!) trying to dance to MC Hammer.

Also, it's really good exercise.

Highly recommended. :)
