Text Tuesday: Transformers Meet Joan Rivers

Happy Tuesday! We have some good news and bad news.

The good news is that Chico has been home for a few months now (cheers from the crowd!).

The bad (if you even want to call it that) news is that we haven’t had very many hilarious texts lately since we’ve been together so much.


I’d like to share a funny interaction we had just the other night:

Scene: Watching TV before we fall asleep.

Aly: What are we watching right now?

Chico: Transformers.

Aly: Since we watched football all day, is it okay if I watch Fashion Police now?

Chico: No, because I don’t want to have nightmares about Joan Rivers.

Me: Well, I don’t want to have nightmares about giant monsters.

Chico: You will anyways. And what’s the difference between Joan Rivers and giant monsters anyways?




Hopes for 2013

Wow- it’s already a new year! As I get older, I realize how fast time flies…

Last year I posted my Hopes for 2012. And while I had some great intentions, I didn’t exactly do so well.

I read one book…. (okay, that is reeeeally bad!) Kept some flowers in the house while watching my “garden” slowly die outside (does that even count?). And the whole camping and broadway show hopes? Yeah, never happened (sad faces)…

Needless to say, I did accomplish some great things in 2012. I started working out Β more than I had previously, traveled to a new destination, I kept up regularly with my other blog for a good portion of the year, and I was able to raise over $1000 for orphans in India!

So although we know I’m horrible at these things, I’d like to try it again. It’s good to at least have some ideas of what you’d like to accomplish in a year, right?

1. Sew more often.

2. Stay organized/keep my house clean.

3. Watch less TV.

4. Volunteer/ Get involved in the community.

5. Write more cards and letters to friends and family.

…and what the heck, I’ll keep some of my old ones on here!

6. Read more.

7. Travel to a New Destination.


8. Go Camping.
