I’m 23, and (Almost) Everyone Still Likes Me.

I never really did like Blink-182. (Sorry, Alicia.)   Yesterday, I went shopping for some birthday presents. For myself, as one does. And literally everything I picked out was black, yellow, or a combination of the two. For those not in the know, I'm from Pittsburgh, much like Wiz Khalifa, and you know what it is. I definitely find myself missing my city and everyone in it a little bit more today. That said, I can't believe how lucky I am to be here. I haven't felt as healthy as I feel now in a very, very long time. Recently, I got the ...

Little by Little

It feels like this entire wedding/moving process is taking forever, but it's really coming up fast. The wedding is 16 days away, and we still need: a bow tie for him, shoes for me, and wedding bands for both of us. We're thinking of going the Etsy route for bands, and I guess we need to make up our minds, like, yesterday. In the mean time, we've been trying to enjoy everything we possibly can in our corner of Pittsburgh. My bridal shower was last weekend, where we enjoyed dinner at Piccolo Forno and cupcakes from Vanilla.   We have plans to visit our ...

It's been a long while since I've shared photos from my Instagram feed, and I kind of miss seeings some visuals on this blog!  I try not to post too many toy pics in case any of you read at work or in public, but I swear, my life involves many other things besides sex products! Beautiful days in Pittsburgh make me a little sad that, come next summer, we'll be moving to wherever Steve gets hired! Nathaniel is adamant that I don't properly clean my nails and frequently takes matters into his own hands. I took my sparkly legs out on the ...

#Ratstagram

Happy Friday!  I'd like to introduce you all to the newest members of my family: Henry, Lionel, and Malcolm, from back to front. Last Friday, we headed out to one of the faraway southern suburbs to pick out a trio of babies from the Pittsburgh Rat Lovers Club.  Recently, they'd had an influx of beebs, which of course led to my weird little heartstrings being tugged.  Steve and I packed up the car and headed out to pick & choose. Henry caught my eye first, because as we like to say in Pittsburghese, he's "nebby."  He wants to know what we're doing, ...

Why I Don’t Go to Shows

Most people think it's just because I'm grumpy and like to be able to sit down whenever I please.  And while they are correct, there is a much more reasonable explanation: I accidentally Carrie Bradshawed my way through Pittsburgh, so large gatherings of 20-something hipsters aren't a safe place for me. Last night, Steve took me to see the Dirty Projectors.  They were fantastic, and I'd actually never heard of them before because my boyfriend is way more of a hipster than I am.  As a quick little interlude about the band, I will tell you that the female vocalist is ...
