So we are in the process of re-doing our bathrooms.  Our house was built in 1971 and there isn't a master bath in the master bedroom.  Also both bathrooms have shag carpeting.

Adam only has one request.  A Japanese bidet.  Have you ever tried one of these things?  They are common in Japan.  Adam fell in love with them during our trip this year.  I think we might be getting one of these. omg.

LA LA Land

Just came back from a whirlwind trip from Los Angeles.  It was a solo one since Adam had taken a lot of days off from work the past couple of months he didn't want to miss anymore.  

I was in town to celebrate my nephew-to-be.  The first in our little family.  We are so happy.

I also got to see a lot of people.  I have friends who want to see me! haha

It was a busy and fun trip.  I love LA (but just to visit).

Mock Family Vacation

I can't even believe I'm saying this but... I prefer Michigan over Portland.  

I guess it didn't help that heading back to Michigan, we flew over a thunderstorm and everyone on the plane thought we were going to die.  Scariest flight of my life.

Will update Portland soon.



Yesterday I received a call from an old friend.  We talk like once a year (maybe even less) but it is always the same... we talk like no time had passed.  

When she called last night, I expected her to tell me she had a kid, or something big news she had kept secret or forgot to tell me.  Instead she is crying and tells me the worst news you could ever expect.  I am not very good with feelings and I had no idea what to say.  I just cried with her.

I still don't know what to do in these situations... and living a whole country away doesn't help.

I just hope that she is able to feel better everyday.



Just came back from a whirlwind of a trip from LA.  Adam is really happy.  Ben took two days off from work to hang out with us.  I was such a third wheel.

Will update photos from the trip which included a ton of eating.  Good stuff.


walking shoes

I want to look stylish especially when we are heading to New York.  The weather report said that it was going to be rainy and a little bit cold, so I decided to bring my swedish hasbeens.  They are pretty comfortable straight out of the box.

These boots have been popular with Brooklyn/Tomboy celebrity set (ie. Chloe Sevigny, Michelle Williams, SJP, etc).

I guess I should remember that when we head to a city, we will be doing a ton of walking.  Anyway, we missed a bus to a subway stop so we ended up walking to that stop.. plus walking around the MOMA, my feet were killing me.  We made a stop to the Niketown and Adam bought me some new sneakers. Spoiled!
I got a ton of compliments from waitresses and strangers on the street.  Adam said that he would see people looking towards us but they were checking out my shoes.  Adam said he wanted to tell them, "she ain't that cool." Haha.

Anyway, note to self: ALWAYS bring sneakers to NY.
