2013 vs. 2014


It's a few days into the brand new year of 2014, but not too late (yet!) to assess the past year via blog posts, as is my tradition (See 2012 and 2011.)

But we survived the month, partly through using Google for Household Management. February: I finally finished our awesome new Modern Glamour Bedroom. Jaye … [Read more...]

A Hodge Podge of Things

Sapphire Ring

Things I haven't gotten around to blogging about: Our awesome spring break trip to Great Wolf Lodge in the Wisconsin Dells. We went with some friends (Phil's best friend from high school) who have a two-year old little boy. It was totally stress-free and perfect.

She was a little fussy and ended up sleeping with us for the last third of the night. It's nice to have her nearby. I got a few hugs before she fell asleep. 2. There was no traffic on the way to class so I was able to get an Evidence problem set done before the lecture started. 3. My super awesome comfy new … [Read more...]

2012 vs. 2013

In honor of the close of 2012, here's a summary of our year using blog posts! January: Putting the finishing touches on Jaye's nursery: her yarn ball mobile, library cart bookshelf, diy canvas art, and art wall. Also, Jaye learned to sit up. February: I started a cooking quest for oatcakes, and Jaye learned to crawl. I made a bar exam survival basket for my BFF Laura. I studied a lot, but Jaye and I had some sweet moments, too. March: Lots of cooking this month: best kale salad ever, chicken … [Read more...]
