it’s been a crazy couple of weeks around here. two weeks ago, today, i went to crossfit for the first time. i was hoping to get my butt back in gear and stop being fat. the workout was mostly pullups (i got to do wussy pullups using rings), rowing, and squats. i could tell i […]
just me myself and i
merlot and van gogh.
my friend (and quilt mom) kim and her (actual) daughter casey had the super fantastic idea to have a group party at merlot and van gogh. you go. drink some wine. and paint a picture. the place where the magic takes place is right next door to burke street pizza. home of the best ever […]
january 5th resolutions.
when i was up, in the middle of the night last night, i looked back in my blog to old new years resolutions/goals. and began to think about this year. and what i want to change in my life. and all that new yearsy type stuff. firstly, my social media cutbacks. two years ago, i […]
apparently, i have to do this for bloglovin.com… Follow my blog with Bloglovin thanks.
i just went back and read my 2012 “resolutions”. like most people, i lasted a few solid months (weeks?) and then fell off the resolution wagon. i kept a few. we got rid of cable/direct tv, so i didn’t watch as much mindless tv. i never went back to twitter and i don’t miss it. […]
hours away from 2012. i’ve been contemplating resolutions. goals. changes. whatever. here goes. 1. less facebook.

i’m pretty excited about a number of recent thrift store/consignment sale finds. bear with me. or is it bare? whatever. i scored this bumblebee (minus a hand) at a consignment sale for $2. ike was thrilled. it makes noises and sings the transformers theme song. i knew the missing hand wouldn’t be an issue since […]
well, i have wasted spent the entire day messing around with my blog. headers, widgets, themes, pages… etcetera. and i’m pretty frustrated. i am only ok with this theme. it looks a little business like. but, i liked that i could have a header image. and it’s customizable. the problem is, and it was a […]
since facebook rolled up on the scene, my blogging has gotten worse and worse. i sort of feel like no one really reads the blog anymore. not even my mom. so what’s the point. and i feel like everything is redundant because i’ve already posted it on facebook. not to mention how easy it is […]
grampa schiavone (aka: peter grampa)
yesterday morning, i got a call from my dad in florida, telling me that my grampa had passed away. he’s been battling alzheimers and other medical problems in these last few years, and had been in the icu for the last couple of weeks after a heart attack. he never fully recovered. thankfully he was […]
