Five Things I’m Feelin’ Right Now

Grass, seating, mulch, yard art, and my beautiful little Daddy-birthday-bloom.

Every once in awhile I get an urge to write about totally random stuff I'm loving. These posts end up as snapshots in time and are some of my favorite to go back and read. So while life is totally freakin' nuts right now, and about to get EVEN MOAR NUTS when Mia goes home, there are some totally random things I'm feelin' at the moment. Hemlock Grove Season 2: Yes I am totally addicted to this Netflix series, weird and supernatural though it may be. Vince and I discovered the first season Continue Reading

Five Months Later

All of us, standing together, on Daddy's birthday.

February 20th my Daddy called an ambulance to take Mia to the hospital. Her flu symptoms were just too bad, and he was just too sick, to go through standard doctor or urgent care routes. Almost exactly five months to the day later, July 18th, I'm going to be bringing Mia home for the first time. I wrote about so much of it in the first couple of months. I don't know how I did it, how I found the time even. But I'm so glad I did. The facts have gotten so fuzzy... the raw feelings and Continue Reading

Hair in the Last Year

Lonnnnng ass hair, June 2nd, 2013

Yup. It's time for another hair-post... So, I'm an Aries. If that means what every Astrology website says it means, then I'm impatient, prone to changing my mind, a pack leader, and someone who jumps into life with enthusiasm. I think the biggest proof of that theory is the frequency with which I change my hair styles, cuts, and colors. I am never afraid of making big changes with my hair - not crazy changes, mind you. Sadly, I have a job and can't go too crazy. But I'm very much a "meh, Continue Reading

One of my favorite Daddy-Facebook-interactions

That last comment.

A couple of years ago, during peak political season, Daddy met Vince, Uncle Dan, Uncle Bob, and myself at Rusty's in Port Canaveral. (If you didn't know, Daddy and I were on TOTAL opposite ends of the political spectrum. Our political Facebook arguments are seriously legendary and could end up 30 comments deep with multiple factcheck.org and snopes.com references.) He didn't know how to work his fancy smartphone but he wanted a picture of us on it, so I handed it to Vince who took the Continue Reading

4th of July Weekend Misadventures

Ali and Alicia @ The Correct Venue.

So this one time, I bought tickets for a show at Hard Rock and totally thought it was at House of Blues, and I didn't realize my mistake until we were parked and eating dinner at the wrong venue. Okay yeah that time was last Thursday night, the show was Lindsay Stirling, and after laughing about my total and complete blonde moment, Vince, Ryan, Alicia and I booked it from HOB to Hard Rock and caught the last 6 songs of the show. It was totally worth the effort because Lindsay Stirling was Continue Reading

The New and Improved Guestroom!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

There is no way anyone is going to be able to truly appreciate this post, these photos, or the insane amount of work it took to get this room back to habitable status after Joey moved out. But damn if I'm not gunna try. So, before Joey moved in, my guestroom looked kinda like this: I say "kinda" because we donated the purple headboard to friends and upgraded the bed to a queen. But otherwise, it pretty much looked like that. Then Joey moved in, we added a desk to the room and put Continue Reading
