Ah, Valentine’s Day.
Okay, technically, yes, it’s a bit of a corporate greeting card holiday.
But, hey, any excuse to be romantic, right?
Last V-day, I presented you with the lover’s lasagna.
Because nothing says “I love you,” like two pounds of cheese. Read the rest of this entry »

Well, 2011, it’s been quite a ride.
There were more than a few notable highlights over the past year.

By this point, I hope everyone is over that terrible (but worth it) way-too-full feeling.
I know that I skipped out on my mamaw’s chocolate eclair by the end of of it, and that’s saying something.
(One year I finished off my enormous Thanksgiving plate with a big hunk of eclair and then drank a big glass of milk. Milk?! … Let’s just go with “ouch.”) Read the rest of this entry »

Partly because I missed spending it in NC with my fam last year.

I have a special place in my heart for Halloween.

But on Halloween, glorious Halloween, it was a sugar-high free for all. Read the rest of this entry »

As you might recall, I like a big fuss over my birthday.
Or, rather, I appreciate it if a big fuss is made.
So, when the hubs’ day rolls around, I like to pay back in full all of the doting attention I received on my birthday
Always one to know exactly what he wants, I had to settle with buying him a watch that he had already picked out.
But I *was* able to surprise him with a beta fish (named Walternate) and a bunch of rainbow-colored balloons.
(Did anyone else watch “The Red Balloon” in film criticism class? No, just me?) Read the rest of this entry »

It’s really your fault that I’m such a brat about birthdays.
Keep showering me with love and affection each year and that’s what I’ll expect.
One and a half week’s worth to be exact.
Seriously though, my
28th 24th birthday was record-setting in terms of princess-style treatment.

Thank you for the gorgeous cards!
