Babies in NJ

J and I went to NJ this weekend primarily for my friend Hallmark4Ever’s baby shower. It was supposed to be a surprise, but she knew every outing could be “it” as she is due in just 7 weeks!! We did surprise her Monday morning though with a belated bday celebration at her favorite diner (she…

Festivities cont.

Since I’m not the most computer-savvy, I find it easier to post pictures when there aren’t a lot of words. So I decided to break up the “festivities” post for my sanity. Sorry for the interrupted reading. After Dville, we drove up to the Chesapeake Bay to meet J’s group of friends for some camping…

Festivities

This has been quite an active two weeks! I promised a recap of my surprise party with some more pictures, so here goes … I was surprised for the party. I had some idea that J was up to something, but I wasn’t sure when and what exactly. I thought we were going to my…

Fun with imaging

I use ichat for work every day. It’s awesome. But that’s besides the point. We each have our symbol showing we are online. Mine has always been a firefly. There weren’t many choices. A lot of people use dog symbols, which is fine, but it gets confusing. My one co-worker created a mini-him for his…

ZZZZZZZZZ

Raise your hand if you are staying up too late watching the Olympics. Yeah, that would be us. I can’t say I’ve always been a die-hard fan of the Olympics. I mean I would watch here and there. But this time around, I’ve been watching just about every night until my eyelids can’t stay open.…

Say wha now?

Some of our friends call J and I active. Hiking. Running. Paddling. Rock Climbing. Sure, those things are not on everyone’s agenda. Nor do most of our friends aspire to hike all the high peaks in the country and spend months in Alaska living off the land. So yes we have lofty and different goals.…

Some people are ballsy

So I was covering the results of this survey from CareerBuilder.com, and it seems 8 percent of workers admit lying on their resume. However, 49 percent of employers have caught job applicants in a lie! Most employers give the person the boot, but I’m more curious what the person says after they are caught in…

The glass is half empty.

I am sad tomorrow is August 1st. The summer is coming to an end!!! We have another jam-packed August with some camping trips and other travel. So the month will fly and before you know it, fall is here. Don’t get me wrong, I love all the seasons. But I am digging the ability to…

In and Out

No, not the burger joint. I wish. I’m talking about SILAdventure. She was here this week on a layover to Iceland. That’s right, Iceland. I wish again. She is going there for 2 weeks to celebrate her graduation from radiology school and for a wedding (how’s that for a destination wedding?). Her layover was just…

Vacay to the … cornfields?

This past weekend served as one of our summer vacations. Yeah! But to the Midwest? That’s right. Roid and Peace’s wedding was in Louisville, KY, on Saturday, so J and I decided to make a trip out of it. I’ll try to keep my summary short and sweet. Wednesday – arrived in Columbus, OH, to…

US citizenship

Chile’s husband will be taking the citizenship test and awhile ago, we were flipping through his study book (which is HUGE) to quiz ourselves. Phoebes did pretty well, but some of the questions really required you to take a trip back to your 7th grade history class. My aunt sent me this link and I…

Tag, you’re it.

In the blogosphere, people like to “tag” you to fill out surveys. Much like those floating around in the email world. So I’ve been tagged. It was a pretty unique one, so why not?* Write a six-word memoir. I chose:There’s no second chance at life. * Post it to your blog including a visual illustration…
