Lets Get Real

Yesterday was a holiday for 80% of DC, so after I was done cursing all of those lucky people who got to sleep in, I realized I had some free time at work since none of them were working. I finally started catching up on some blogs I haven't read in so long. Every tine I catch up on blog I remember why I used to love blogging a lot and reading other blogs.

I caught up on Lacie's Blog, Queen Lacie, and remembered why I loved reading it. She's just so real. She talks about it all and in such a refreshing way and it made my wonder why we don't all blog more like that.

We all know I'm not cooking up pinterest worthy cakes or working out every second of every day and posting motivational pictures. We're just normal people, living normal lives. So I decided I wanted my blog to be more like that. I usually just post when we've done something interesting, but I think looking back at this I would also want to read about the stuff we do every day.

So...what have we been up to?

Well, I found a way to make myself not feel so guilty for watching Gilmore Girls endlessly since it went on Netflix. Hal and I have been on a search for blackout curtains,(thanks to two evil streetlights right outside our windows) and after having no luck with some we bought, we realized we could make some for much cheaper. But since my sewing machine that my mother in law so painstakingly restored for me decided to have tension issues that no amount of skype with her could fix, I started sewing all 6 blackout liners to our curtains by hand while watching the first season of Gilmore Girls. I finished them last night and never want to see another blackout liner ever. I pricked myself only a thousand times.
Have you heard of the website Meetup? Well, we're trying to make new friends in our area, so we went to our first meetup of hiking the C&O Canal by moonlight. We got there late and it was pouring down, so we hiked about 20 minutes by ourselves in the dark and rain and I'm not gonna lie, I was totally freaked out until we found the rest of the group.
Hal I soaking up his last two weeks of ultimate frisbee. He's absolutely loved playing every week. It's a team made up of almost all EY employees and is sponsored by the company. They didn't have enough players last week, and were going to have to forfeit if I didn't play, so guys, I PLAYED ULTIMATE FRISBEE, almost the entire game too. That was huge, because running is pretty much my nemesis.
And guess who got approval to sit for the CPA exam in Maryland and is registered to take his first of four exams next month. My life is gonna be pretty boring for the next year while he takes all 4 exams, so go ahead and send easy crafts my way, that I can do while Gilmore Girls becomes my second husband.

Oh hello there stranger. :) Yeah, you caught up I realized that. So glad you are back, and boo on those that got time off yesterday. Then again, we may get off when they don't.
I tried Meetup, but so far couldn't find a group or event to go to that would work. Am I too picky? It's hard to make friends in a new area when you know no one.
Netflix and Gilmore Girls?! Yes please. Going to watch that show again when it gets colder...hopefully soon. :) Have fun with your second husband...hahahaha, that just cracked me up!!! :) Will he be done after those 4 exams or are more coming his way?!

Sewing curtains by hand? Dang--that would definitely take a lot of episodes! :)
