What we've been up to

- Tyson and I went furniture shopping on Monday for fun. I guess now that we've been married for 3 1/2 years it's time to actually buy a couch. And a table. And chairs. You know, the kinda stuff we might need once we actually get a house.

- While we were out shopping Tyson and I came across a field with a flock of geese in it. A flock of like 400 geese. Tyson cant resist chasing birds (maybe he was a dog in a former life? If I believed in former lives?) so he hopped out of the car and scared every single goose away. He made it back to the car unscathed which I considered lucky since about half of them flew over his head.

- We went to Olive Garden for our Valentine's dinner and the waitress was shocked that we had been married so long. She couldn't believe how happy we were and thought we were newlyweds. It felt good to be complemented as such a glowing couple but then I felt all this pressure to be SUPER happy the rest of the night. Kinda that "oh I just saw a guy I used to date and now I need to prove how much better my life is now that he's gone" feeling. Has anyone else done that? Please say yes.

- Speaking of Valentine's day Tyson got me some delicious chocolates that I'm still enjoying.

- And red tulips.

- I went over my minutes on my cell phone and had to go on a self imposed phone ban for several days. I did not realize how much I had been using my phone in the last month although going over my minutes was certainly an indication.

- I have totally failed at my resolution to watch less T.V.

- I have been doing AWESOME at my other resolutions though!

-Well, that's pretty much it for now! I feel so relieved that I've finally caught up. Now I can go back to blogging about the mindless things that I really want to talk about, yay!


  1. Ha ha!! I laughed for a good 2 minutes after reading about the goose chasing! I pictured it vividly in my mind (I probably would have done the same thing!)

  2. Sounds like a fabulous Valentines Day! Buying furniture is hard! Did you make any decissions? My suggestion is to get stain guard on those couches! You never know what will happen! :) PS. The goose thing is hillarious!

  3. Girl, I passed the old jewelery store that you used to work at and thought of you. I thought of how great your life is in WA and how you don't have to deal with the nasty drama from that place!

  4. I'm happy to see a new post. :) I have totally done the same thing you talked about at Olive Garden. Happens when people say something nice about my kids or me being a good mom. Then I have to go "overboard". Tsk, tsk. By the way, wanna join my online cooking club? I bet you'd be a great, or is it "grate", poster.

  5. When are we going to get together to scrapbook? I have a goal to make it into a blog entry of yours now that we live close. :)
