I'm a nerd.

This warm spring-y weather has been SO good for my soul the last two weeks. It's such a nice, welcome departure from all the snowy nastiness and bitter cold (and yes, when I say bitter cold, I do mean like 30-40 degrees Fahrenheit. Sometimes I think I'm cold-blooded, like a lizard.)

So far today, we have taken Luna to the dog park and I made a yummy lunch of cheeseburgers, oven fries made with Yukon gold potatoes, and red cabbage and carrot slaw. The CSA cooking is back in full swing :) I'm so thankful for those yummy veggies that come in my box each week!

I have a great big long to-do list to accomplish today, but I'm taking a break before getting into it full-throttle. To-do lists always work so well for me. If I don't make one, I tend to sit around and do nothing (ie watch Glee reruns on Hulu, Google Darren Criss to my heart's content and have Say Yes To the Dress marathons on Netflix...) But if I know that little checklist is sitting on my table, just waiting for things to be crossed through, it motivates me to get my butt in gear and get things done.

(An aside: I may or may not have developed a ridiculous schoolgirl celebrity crush on Darren Criss. Who is actually younger than I am. But not by a lot. I'm actually sad to say that I first saw him on Glee, and THEN made the shocking and amazing and exhilirating discovery that he co-owns a theater company who has done not one but TWO Harry Potter musicals. And he played Harry Potter. In both of them. BE. STILL. MY. HEART.)

(Also, if you're interested, said musicals are called A Very Potter Musical and A Very Potter Musical: The Sequel, and can be found in their entirety on YouTube. Just, you know, in case any of you are facing a similar Darren Criss predicament. Or love Harry Potter to embarrassing proportions. Either one.)


Now I need to go do actual grown-up things, like vacuum my house. The to-do list beckons :)

(But seriously, you should watch that musical.)

New layout...

So I just wasted WAY too much time doing a new blog layout ... one of my favorite ways to procrastinate :)

I like this new layout. It's simple and understated and not busy and I love the fonts!

Now I'm actually going to try to get some stuff marked off of my to-do list. Hope everybody's having a great afternoon!

PhotoBooth Fun with Luna :)

Gosh, I love this puppy :)

Apologies for my greasy hair and messy bangs ... I need a shower :)

So, I couldn't stay gone for too long...

Too many exciting things are happening lately, and I want to share them with you guys! So I guess I'm back, but in a very non-pressure way for myself ... Hopefully that's ok with everybody else :)

Things that are happening:

1) Luna is getting huge! Here are some current pics:

She loves her walks :)

I love this - she's all beagle :)

Wearing the cone of shame - she was spayed about 3 weeks ago, and we're going this afternoon for (hopefully) her final checkup ... she was allergic to her stitches, and liked to lick at her incision.

2) I got my hair cut - bangs!! I love it :)

3) I've been reading a ton - I think I'm on book 7 or 8 so far this year, and right now I'm reading Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. I made a bucket list of books that's got about 95 books on it (and counting...) so I'm working on that.

4) This week in particular, I've been crafting crafting crafting ... I'm helping out with Kelly's lingerie shower in a couple of weeks, doing the decorations and such, and I've got all sorts of cute ideas up my sleeve. Pictures hopefully to come after the shower ... I want the decorations to be a surprise, and if I put them on here, Kelly will probably see them :)

5) We got a new dining room table! It's so pretty :) (The picture doesn't nearly do it justice...)

6) Mark bought me a new camera for Valentine's Day! It was supposed to be my birthday present, but because of all the happenings as of late, he wanted me to have it early so I could document all my fun times. It's a Nikon Coolpix S8100, and it's pretty awesome :) I love it! (I would post some pictures from it, but I seem to have misplaced the USB cables ... awesome...)

Anyway, there's a brief synopsis of what's happening in my world lately. Life is good!
