7 things: summer 2014 faves

Thursday, August 7th, 2014

What’s this? A new 7 things post? Who’d of thunk? But here I find myself, freshly on the other side of 30. New city. New baby. New blog. With all these new things in my life I thought I’d offer up a list of my tried-and-true summer faves for a little bit of balance. 1. […]

Seven Things: random facts

Friday, January 18th, 2013

As you may have guessed from the fact that it is now the 18th of the month and I have yet to post a seven things post – I haven’t been able to come up with a good theme for this month’s list. I thought about doing resolutions (so cliche) (also I didn’t really make […]

Seven Things: that I will do when I am done with grad school

Friday, December 14th, 2012

Friends, I finish grad school in 4 and a half days. No, I do not know what I will be doing next.  But aside from finding a job I will be doing the following: 1. Rereading Anna Karenina, and maybe Harry Potter. I’ve been reading a lot of crap lately, mixed in with reading for […]

Seven Things: Eat your kale

Friday, November 9th, 2012

About a bazillion years ago I was talking to my mom and mentioned how kale was a relatively new food for me – I had never even heard of it before 2009, and then I think it took about a year before I actually tried it. Now it is a staple in our house. Anyway, […]

Seven Things: That I could have blogged about in September, but didn’t

Friday, September 28th, 2012

Folks, I don’t know why I haven’t written anything here in over a month. I do know that I spend 3 of those weekends traveling to MN, so that may have had something to do with it. But I have Monday’s off, it’s not like I don’t have enough time for this. Anywho. Since I […]

Seven Things: to do to pass the time while husby is on nights

Sunday, July 8th, 2012

Husby just started his third year of med school, which means he’s finally seeing real patients in the real hospital and getting to do real things (like holding legs during labor and delivery. Was that TMI? oops.) And all of this real gets to happen at night for the next week. Which means we won’t […]

Seven Things: How to make yourself a birthday cake

Tuesday, June 19th, 2012

I don’t often make cake. Cupcakes by the dozens, but rarely cake.  And to be honest, the cakes I’ve made in the past have been ho-hum. There was a pretty awesome sweet and salty chocolate caramel cake, but the actual cake was nothing to write home about. All the additions were amazing, but the cake was […]

Seven Things: that already drive me cray-cray about husby* six months in

Tuesday, May 8th, 2012

*All in good humor of course. Last month, as the 7th approached, after having spent the past half hour rolling my eyes at him and sighing in exasperation, husby suggested that I write my monthly seven things post about things that he does that annoy me.  I already had last month’s topic picked out.  But […]
