making the switch

November 2, 2009

after some consideration this weekend, i’ve decided to switch to blogger.

please find me here!


currently considering…

October 31, 2009

…switching to blogger.

i’ve heard it’s easier to use and since i’m not {even a little tech savy}…it may be the way to go.

any suggestions?



p.s.-happy halloween & trick-or-treating

give up

October 30, 2009

today is one of those i want to give up days.

i’ve had a migraine for the past three days…yeah three days! i’m beyond ready for it to go away and it’s really cutting into my homework output. i have so many things due this coming week…

i’d much rather be going to this and watching Hocus Pocus.

And of course eating tons of Halloween candy. Or even better, at home trick-or-treating with my little cousins.

On the plus side I’ve had tons of sleep the last few days.

Tomorrow will be better. Surely the headache will subside, I have Hocus Pocus on Netflix, and maybe the walking tour will be held tomorrow again as well.

I hope you’re all having lovely (read: low stress, fun & maybe just a little scary) halloween!

the Capital

the several of the Smithsonian museums including:

the American History

the Natural History

and the Air & Space

…and finished up with drinks in Arlington

unfortunately I have no photos to show for it

{new goal: take more photos}

and learned the joy of dry shampoo

some day I hope to have a little cottage in the country [i’ll have to keep my apartment in the city of course] where we can go apple picking in the fall and swimming in the summer.
