Site updates…

May 21, 2009

As some of you out there may have noticed, or maybe not, there’s a shiny new banner up at the top of the page and some cool new links. I’m in the process of switching over from AnAmericanGirlinParis to blogging here again this summer. I get back to Austin June 1st and leave June 3rd to road trip across the eastern half of the US up to Boston, where I’ll be from June 6th all summer. S and I have all sorts of fun stops planned out, including several sweet roadfood places. I can’t wait to tell you all about it and to have access to S’s awesome, awesome camera. See you all in the states in 10 days!

Oh, and in other exciting news, Military Wife is preggers, which means I’m gonna have my first niece in early July. I cannot even explain my level of excitement. Belly pictures to come ASAP!

A Love Story (but not mine)…

May 2, 2008

As promised, a post about the planning of my best friend’s wedding shower, but first I wanted to give you a bit of background on the happy couple. First of all, she has been my best friend since third grade. We met in our homeroom class and became best friends over my parent’s divorce. If I were home, I could show you some sweet embarrassing pictures of the two of us in matching outfits at renaissance fairs and Sea World. We’ve been together through everything, from father daughter dances to first kisses (hers at least a year before mine) to first true loves to first heartbreaks to (now) a marriage. She is one of the most brave, sweet, loving, genuine and hilarious people I know. And quite a looker:

She met her boy at a church retreat right before our senior year. He is really nice and makes her so happy, which is really all I could ask for in my best friend’s partner. Aren’t they cute:

Anyways, they started dating the summer before our senior year of high school and have been pretty much inseparable since. He joined the Air Force last fall and is in training in Florida. They had a quick-y courthouse wedding when he was on Christmas break with just family and me and the boy present. They’re planning on doing a more formal church ceremony and reception. In honor of that event and in celebration of their new life together, I’m throwing her a shower with our friends.

And to leave you, here they are in the most adorable e-pic ever:

So, hopefully sometime this weekend I’ll take a break from my finals studying to post about the wonderful shower I’m sooo excited to be planning for her.

P.S. All the picks came from her facebook, natch.

Things that I love…

March 13, 2008

I’m finally coming up for air after mid-terms, which included a French exam on literature during the reign of Louis XIV, a biology exam and a medical anthropology theory paper. On top of that, I work as a research assistant and was way behind on my work. I’m finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. Now, on to the fun part, my love list, inspired by She Likes Purple, who is an all around amazing writing and may in fact be me in a few years.

Here are the rules from She Likes Purple: “*I challenge you to make your own list. The only catch? You can’t include a single person you know on your list. No “I love the way my husband laughs” or “I love hearing my little girl call for me.” It’ll be tough, I know. (Think about it, I couldn’t include MOLLY on my list.) But this particular little exercise is about stripping away everyone who defines you and figuring out what you (not his partner; not their mother/daughter/sister/friend) love.”

My list after the cut. (more…)
