The New Year’s Eve I had no reason to forget to blog about

A lot of time was spent in this kitchen, with these types of drinks.

I have NO idea why I forgot to document New Year's Eve 2013 - 2014, because it was bad. freakin'. ass. As with all New Year's Eves, there's an immense amount of pressure to make it epic and throw down and blah blah blah. You'd think that at this point I'd be immune to the pressure, but nope. Every year I start getting panicky and call friends around the state to see what plans are, starting usually the second week in December. This... err... last? year was different though. I casually Continue Reading

Vince’s Store Bought Birfday

The group, holding the cupcakes (and the only photo taken of them before they were devoured!)

I can't believe I'm writing about this well over a month after the fact, but what can I say? Life. It's good right now. :) This year was Vince's 35th birthday - 35th!!! I met Vince when he was 25 and every year on January 13th I've struggled to rally our Still-hung-over-from-New-Years-partied-out friends to give Vince the birthday celebration he truly deserves. And every year we manage to pull something off - even if it's just a really effing expensive dinner with our local pals. This Continue Reading

Oops…. Excuses and an Update

We fancy!

Well, I had ever intention of blogging every day the month of November and... yeah that didn't happen. In fact, it looks like I'm not going to make much out of December either. So what the hell happened? A new job. A renewed focus on my home-life. A new Kindle Paperwhite.... The last item was a gift from my former SVP and I am absolutely inlove with being able to read on my Kindle in an otherwise pitch-black room. But seriously, here's one of those random updates that doesn't make a Continue Reading

Nick and Ashley’s St. Augustine Wedding!

And seriously, could there be a more badass cake topper?

Friday, November 1st Vince and I enjoyed a lovely summer fall evening in St. Augustine, FL for Nick and Ashley's wedding! First, some back-story. Vince went to high school with Nick in Inverness and they reconnected a couple of years ago when they realized they were both really, really into motorcycles. When they first reconnected, I of course came along for the ride (literally) and ended up thinking his lady Ashley was a pretty cool chick. And by 'cool' I mean 'down.' It is a known Continue Reading

How I Accidentally Nicknamed Baby Pita

Ali and Pita!

If we're friends on Instagram or Facebook, then you may have noticed some unusual activity on my accounts lately. I've been posting photos of myself with... well, there's no real easy way to say this... I've been posting photos of myself with a frickin' baby. Let's go ahead and get this out of the way now: It's not mine. (And in case my Dad miraculously discovered this blog, no dude I still don't want kids. My uterus didn't even so much as twitch while holding this thing and it Continue Reading

How I Witnessed My Best Friend’s Episcopal Wedding

On May 18, 2013 my best friend and heterolifemate, Grace, got married! The wedding was in Brooklyn, the weather was beautiful, the dress was handmade by the bride, and I was A Witness. Grace asked me to be uh witness three weeks prior, after the rehearsal of my own wedding in Asheville. Since she and Aaron weren't having any attendants, I was honored to be given a role on her special day. Here's what I know uh witness is responsible for at a wedding: Watch two people get married.
