20 weeks

Turns out I’m feeling so much better! All it took was realizing just how beautiful it is to stand on the scale and discover that I’ve already gained seventeen pounds! I can’t wait to shop for panties that have more square footage than a pool cover!

Electronic labeling system

This Brother P-Touch label maker was a total lifesaver when we were organizing the office, although you might want to keep it hidden from curious five-year-olds who can burn through an entire spool of tape in under three minutes by printing things like POOP or BUTTTTT. We labeled folders, drawers, shelves, boxes, and eventually slapped [...]

Because his ears were cold

Listening to: Cut Copy

Jon and I have a membership at a nearby gym and have made a habit out of working out at least three times a week since we moved back to Utah from LA. Our gym is famous for its intensive classes, but I’ve always enjoyed the freedom of being able to hop onto an elliptical [...]
