One, I’m not sure if enchalupé is a word.  Two, I just figured out how to put the accent above the e, which makes me kind of excited.  Regardless, I’m excited about this recipe. I received this recipe from the mom from my roommate Steph in college.  I spent a couple of weeks staying with … Continue reading »

Ooooh, I’ve been bad…

It’s been a REALLY long time since I’ve updated this.  Bad blogger!  Well, in all fairness, I’ve been blogging…just not here.  I’ve been updating the baby blog and a class blog, so this one has just fallen by the wayside.  My apologies! So, what’s been going on the past six weeks or so?  A lot … Continue reading »

Me, A-Z

As Spring Break is winding down, I was looking for something somewhat frivolous to do tonight.  Aside from watching Frozen Planet, I came across this fun little thing.  I figured it was a random way for me to share a little bit more about my life. A. Age: 27 B. Bed size: Queen C. Chore that … Continue reading »

The Day Our Life Changed

Written on December 30, 2011 I’m going to be holding this one close to the chest for a while…once we decide to announce this to the world, I’ll make this post public.  For now, it’s just between DH and I. Our lives changed forever today at 3:45 p.m. when I took a pregnancy test. I’d … Continue reading »

The Life/Work Balance

In a much different way from last semester, this semester is rough.  I don’t know if it’s just one specific class that has me bogged down with just an insane amount of constant work, or if it’s the combination of these four classes that make me wish there was either more time in the day, … Continue reading »

Soul Searching

The past month or so has been a little rough…it’s gotten even more tricky since school has started up again. I continue to question whether or not I can do this.  People tell you before joining a Ph.D. program that it’s hard.  If you’re like me, you’ll probably shrug it off, and think, “Well, maybe … Continue reading »

“Home” for the Holidays

Once again this year, DH and I packed up the cats, and made our Christmas pilgrimage to the north to spend the holiday at his sister’s house.  I really like it when we go there for Christmas, because that means we get to do Christmas with his family, my Dad, and usually my brother-in-law’s family.  … Continue reading »

Christmas Cheer

I can’t believe it’s been nearly a month since I’ve posted last.  I guess life got really busy, eh? My life for the past month has been taken over by school, and statistics.  Somewhere in there, I’ve turned 27.  Yikes.  I mentally keep referring to myself as 26.  I keep forgetting that I had a … Continue reading »

Oh How I Love Her…

After the craziness of last week, I got to come home to a pleasant surprise: my grandma had sent me a card!  Now, it’s not unusual for grandkids to receive cards from their grandparents, nor is it usually terribly exciting.  But, my grandma is different.  The most random, off-the-wall things usually come from Lolo.  And … Continue reading »

The Math Meltdown

For those of you who follow my blog (or who are somewhat close to me IRL) have probably seen this coming: the beginning of a complete mental breakdown due to Statistics. Okay, so I’m being a little dramatic about the mental breakdown part.  But, this class has made my first semester hell, fo’ real, yo. … Continue reading »
