Oh man, what to say? The weekend after a three day weekend is always the shortest weekend on the planet. What a tease you were, weekend. The baby is on a wake-up-super-early-every-day kick and it is killing me. KILLING ME. I already wake up at 5am during the week in order to work out, so on the weekends I really… REALLY need at least a 6:30 or 7:00 sleep in schedule. But no. Not even with staying up past baby bedtime on Friday did we get a sleep in. Nope. So I am writing this on Sunday night and I am DRAGGING. Oh, 5 day week, how you will stomp on me and spit me out, I just know it. This weekend was errands errands errands, cleaning...

Searching for the Happies

My grumps have not subsided. Certain things I can usually shrug off are hitting me deep and hard. For the inside myself part of the show things have been no bueno for a lot of the time. Muddle through, get through the day, try not to bite Kamel’s head off, try not to comment on such and such so as not to start an avalanche of unnecessary drama. I feel like holding yourself back in the world of the constant ability to have a public opinion deserves a round of applause. Hey everyone! I didn’t start shit! Hoooray! My ability to hold myself back doesn’t happen too often, so let it be known: This week Lauren didn’t burn the place down!...

We had an unexpetedly full and fun weekend with a last minute Seattle Sounders game (our first!), a trip to the nicest DMV I have ever experienced, and the farmer’s market with my parents on Sunday. It was the perfect amount of adventure and getting shit done and relaxation. Somehow, though, I still managed to be easily irritated and grumpy at times. I really really hate when that happens. It is such a waste of negative malarky. Also, our neighbors on the ground floor have a giant patio and have been barbecuing every night for the past week. It makes me long for a backyard and a beautifully grilled steak. And it makes me kind of hate...

Things, May

I’m still obsessing over tea. Lemony, minty, hints of berry floating in there, green with lemon, black citrus, mint mint mint. I want it all. I don’t care if it is 80 degrees outside, my office is freezing and I will clutch a hot cup of tea all day long and listen to my wedding ring clink clink clinking against it and be happy. I get to go to lunch with along lost high school acquaintance today. On my second day in the office I ran into her in the hallway. I guess this is what happens when you move home and get a job. I came from a place where, even though I had been living and working and schooling for almost ten years, I...

Books! Reviews of Books! (Part 4, Book List 2)

This is the last set of reviews for the second Better in Real Life book list! Yay!! It only took me like over a year to finish it. Ugh. And! I didn’t even read all of the books. Unfortunately the Stephen King book, 11/22/63, because I (to be honest) ran out of time. I do still want to read it, but it will have to wait. Tomorrow is the launch of the 3rd book list and things have been mixed up quite a bit (To help me stay on track and to keep book reviews happening on this blog a lot more frequently.) but we’ll get to that tomorrow! For now, the final few books, hopefully with a lot of discussion in comments (I have been waiting...

Who the hell is she?


I am a writer living in Seattle and I believe that life is a grand adventure and only boring if you believe it to be. Plus! You don't need money to have fun.

I live with my husband, a photographer by education and a maker-of-video-games by trade, and a baby named gabe in an apartment on the hill.

I am romantic about most things and I cry... about almost anything. I tell stories to entertain you, I spread stories to keep you in the loop. I am not a grammar freak, but I do know how to spell it. I am exceedingly proud of my scrambled eggs and I really could eat an entire pan of cupcakes. If I met me, I would be my best friend. I tend to be irreverent.

If you would like to chat with me or see what else I'm up to you can follow me on Twitter (betterinrealife), on facebook, or email me at betterinrealife at gmail.
