I like to listen to podcasts … A lot.. Because I drive A LOT.
My drive is about 1 hour each way. Often more because of traffic. The drive to work is about 35 miles, along one of the most obnoxious freeways in Los Angeles. Which means that is 35-miles-of-potential for car accidents or [...]
Neither Andrew or I have had our eyes checked in YEARS.
So in February I finally got around to checking out some places on Yelp! to make us both eye appointments.
We ended up going to Santa Clarita Family Optometry with Dr. Mikhail
She was fantastic and her whole staff was awesome – nice [...]
In honor of my BIRTHDAY!!!
Loving: The way Andrew talks to the cats. His voice gets all high and lovey like he’s talking to little girls. He is just ENAMORED with the cats and it cracks me up. Especially because they’ve been getting more vocal lately and we have “conversations” with them He [...]
Only 12 hours before I got the phone call to meet Andrew in the emergency room, he SWORE to me that he’d pamper me and take care of me and make sure I stayed off my feet.
That obviously didn’t work out.
But, you see, [...]
I turned 30 last week, did you know??
I had all these grand plans to have a birthday/house-warming party on April 1 …. after we had been in the house for 3 weeks or so.
But alas, still no kitchen, which means boxes everywhere, which means no point in having a house-warming party.
eating a big bowl of watermelon for lunch every day for a month. And then learning how much sugar I just ate. telling a waiter I could totally tell he was a theater-person, and him interpreting that as me calling him gay at the day job, eating 1/2 a cupcake because they’re so [...]
(so says Angela)
Wednesday morning we had some scenic cruising up Tracy Arm Fjord to view Sawyer Glacier ….
Andrew ran up to the prow of the ship to see the glacier closer, ran back down to get me to come up and we walked back up together (around 8am) …
Awkward horsing around with Andrew, trying to push him away with my feet and accidentally kicking him hard in the side. So hard that he was sore for DAYS afterward…. .oops! Still having zits at almost 30 years old. ANNOYING! falling HARD down 4 steps in front of God and all the world [...]
(Linking up to The Daybook’s Awkward and Awesome Thursday party)
forgetting to put on my wedding rings before I go to the grocery store and having a cashier (about 6 years younger than me) flirt with me
working Memorial Day and having a co-worker walk around completely barefoot all day
Remember when you were little and you would spend all day every day during the summer reading? Sometimes you got through as many as 3 chapter books in a day??
No? Just me?
What about those school programs when you got a prize for reading a certain number of books in a [...]
this little girl – this blonde suburban girl – wanted to be Diana Ross when she grew up.
Also, just found out that around the same time …. on the other side of town …. A little suburban boy named Andrew wanted to be Michael Jackson when he grew [...]
I’m down about 40lbs total from my peak.
When I showed y’all my grand reveal a year ago, I was down 20 lbs. ….. and then 6 months after that I was down another 20.
I feel so much more healthy than I did 2 years ago….

I know, the title sounds kind of ooh-la-la, but it’s mostly a story about Devo and myself. Oh, this is Andrew by the way, doing a mid-week post since this is my story and not Amy’s.
After the wedding and reception, Devo had rounded up cabs to take all the guests to their lodgings. [...]
After our wonderful sunny day in the Tuscan Countryside tasting wine, olive oil and a traditional Italian home-cooked meal everyone was kind of beat. The next day Angela and Devo had a full day of getting married and I think most of us just wanted to relax and be available to help prepare for [...]
Amy loves the 60′s. She loves the music, loves to watch television shows that take place in that decade, loves the fashion, loves that Americans were fighting for change and for peace. Ok, well she doesn’t love all the psychedelic music, but she knows just about every girl group song that ever was. I [...]
