6 years of wedded bliss...

Today is me and Ryan's anniversary. And I know that's bad grammar, but I don't care.

Me and Buddy

Married life is good. It's not always easy, but it's nice coming home to a family. Ryan is my best buddy, and he supports me and loves me no matter what, and that's what it's all about. It's hard to believe that the best outcome of our marriage so far is going to be 3 in less than a month! I have to give props to my buddy for making me a mom - it has made my life worth so much more. As a mom, I feel like I really have a purpose that goes above and beyond anything else in life, and that's just plain cool.

So happy anniversary buddy!

And on a side note, we celebrated by buying new living room furniture - it's the first furniture we've ever bought. We've gotten pretty much every piece of furniture that we own for free (aside from our entertainment stand, which houses our wonderful television), so it felt good buying something new. Now to figure out how to keep Red off of it...

maybe he's just really relieved that the debates are done...

Self Esteem

So the other day, Ryan told me I have self esteem issues. Which, hello? Like I didn't know that! But it's different hearing someone tell you that. Especially your husband. I know I tear myself down around him, but I thought he probably agreed with me. Turns out he doesn't - he thinks I'm hot no matter how big my butt is.

So, the weight loss isn't going very well. This will be week 6 of yoga, and I've signed up for another 6 weeks. My problem is finding extra time to exercise. Usually, I have a tough time getting my butt out of bed in the morning, so before work is kind of out. I love my sleep. Then when I get home life is hectic. By the time I get Lyric in bed, I'm wiped out.

Any suggestions for squeezing in exercise? Other than hooping in 10 minute installments in my kitchen, I'm not really doing much. I suck.

If the world could vote...

Just twittered this and posted it on my facebook - but here it is again...

Vampire Weekend was canceled. We didn't go to the parade either. Wow, am I boring or WHAT?

Almost Famous

This is my boss, sitting behind Val Kilmer in the classroom scene of Top Gun. As the head of PR for the Navy back then, he got to be an extra in a lot of Navy movies.

Yeah. Just a little cool tidbit of info.

Hipster Bingo

Vampire Weekend is playing a free show outside at Carnegie Mellon on Saturday - put together by Students for Barack Obama. It's a toss up for me whether to go to that or to the Autumn Leaf Festival parade (and take Lyric). Hipster bingo or drunk college students and alumni? Or could both be present at each?

Somehow I doubt hipsters will be present in Clarion. Hmm. I'll let you know what I decide.
