Shutting Down Early

Mad Men Is Back!

I know, I know, I’m way behind, but I only realized last night that the full episodes are available to watch online! (At AMC’s website.) I will confess, it took me about a season to really get into Mad Men. I found it depressing and slow at first. I would fall asleep through every episode, […]

I’m Back!

So what I didn’t mention last week was that the bachelorette party was an 8 hour car drive away.. Road trip! This was a drive I’ve made millions of times before – but I have to be honest, it’s not always my favorite. I have a hard time reading or sleeping in the car, and […]

St Patrick’s Day

  Over the two plus years that David and I have been together, we have discovered a joint love of throwing increasingly elaborate parties. There was the Halloween party last year, David’s birthday parties, one of which was an anything but clothes party (it was our last year in college, we figured why not live […]


I am really bad at project management. There, I said it! When I was in school, I used to carry around a notebook (a Moleskine, of course) and write down everything I needed to remember in that notebook. It worked pretty well, but the system has broken down now that I’m out in the real […]

Over The Hump

  This weekend I am going to my first ever bachelorette party. I am incredibly excited (and also pretty confused on what to wear.. something sparkly, right? Any suggestions? My budget is 10 dollars. Good luck!) and a little bit in denial. My cousin, who I’ve been friends with before I was born (she is […]

Sneak Peek

You might ask what I am so busy doing. One of the lame parts about designing and making things is that I can’t usually publicly talk about it while it’s a work in progress.  By the time I do share things, they’ve usually been done for a while, and my excitement has simmered down to […]


Super honesty time: This has been a crappy day, following a crazy week. I feel like I have been working nonstop (I was up until 2 last night working on stuff… and it’s quickly becoming the norm), and today has had more than its share of rejection. As frustrating as it is to feel like […]

The Office

Ever since David’s dad conjured up an amazing workspace for me, I’ve been spending way more time in my office. It’s great to be able to get up and leave whatever I’m working on and not worry about leaving a mess in the middle of the apartment. Making stuff is messy, you can’t escape it.  […]

The Quick Brown Fox Jumps Over The Lazy Dog

I was going to title this post “Quick Update” but that seemed boring. I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before, but I am trying to transition over to a new blogging plan, where I write some posts in advance. I used to think that writing in your blog the day you want to post […]
