Farewell 2008!

Wednesday, December 31st, 2008

Hey all… I realize I’ve been sort of MIA lately. Blame it on the holidays, it’s been a busy two weeks. I have a lot of good stuff for you guys coming in 2009, but as for today I just have one thing to say.
HAVE A SAFE AND HAPPY NEW YEAR’S EVE!
See you in the [...]

When The Shoe is on the Other Foot

Friday, December 26th, 2008

I’ve been an avid reader and subscriber to this blog for months. One of the reasons I like it is because the entries are honest and thought provoking, but another reason is because the content is so drastically different than what I normally write. For those who don’t know me, I usually talk about all [...]

A holiday question

Monday, December 22nd, 2008

Happy holidays!
After a series of winter tire related mishaps and a treacherous icy night drive through the mountains, I have made it back to my small hometown. It is in the middle of a cold snap, so I’ve had no excuse not to sleep in and spend copious amounts of time baking Christmas goodies. I [...]

Matrimony Madness

Monday, December 15th, 2008

I posted this on my blog a few days ago– but it seemed too perfect in scope not to post here, too!
Perhaps by virtue of our Canadian and career-ist nature, the bulk of my friends did not rush into wedded bliss right after high school. Sure, there was the one couple who married essentially when [...]

A Reader’s Question for YOU

Friday, December 12th, 2008

Today we have a reader’s question from Haley Fay. She emailed this to me earlier this morning and wants to hear how other twentysomething ladies would answer. Leave your response in the comments.
“If there’s one thing about my future I’m sure about, it’s that I want to be a mom someday.  But recently, an unrealistic and totally [...]

Roommates

Wednesday, December 10th, 2008

I have three of them. They are awesome girls and I enjoy living with them. But no matter how much you like your roommates, there are always those dreaded issues.
Cleaning - This is hard when you have four people living in an apartment who all have cleaning on very different places on their list of [...]

Oblivious

Monday, December 8th, 2008

This weekend was my office Christmas party. As we sat at the end of a long table filled with co-workers and spouses, a co-worker of mine came to speak to us. To put it into context, he and I have known each other very casually for several years, but have gotten to know one another [...]

I’m like a chocoholic, except with alcohol

Saturday, December 6th, 2008

This week’s guest post is brought you by S’mat of whomunculous…
The above was the opening line of a satirical email forward I received a few years ago (remember those?! “You have received this email from your mother’s friend who somehow got a hold of your email and you now have to send it to more people [...]

Big Oops

Wednesday, December 3rd, 2008

Hi guys.
Wow, I suck. I was totally planning on writing a long, wonderful, amazing post for your reading pleasure today… and then I fell asleep.
Let’s reschedule for Friday. See you then… say…. 11am? Great.
But anyways… there are some changes going on over here at UNW. We’ve been slacking and we feel bad. Especially me. So [...]

Shackin’ Up

Monday, December 1st, 2008

I’m not too sure when I became the resident expert on cohabitation.
It could be that, seven months into living in a new apartment with my guy, I am still deliciously giddy about the notion of waking up to him every morning, and he still finds me bearable and perhaps a little cute, despite my tendency [...]
