Hello there! A friend asked me, in a roundabout way, if I had a blog. I told her I DID, but I hadn't updated it in a while. Then I went to give her the link, and looked at my sad, neglected blog, and decided to update. I did indeed get married last year - May 23rd, 2015. It was very lovely and I couldn't have asked for a better day. I also got very drunk and that was fun, too. 

Here's me and the husbeast on our honeymoon to DINOSAUR LAND, which unless you live in a particular part of Virginia, you won't know about, and more's the pity for YOU, sir or madam. 

We had a great time. 

So: got married end of May. A couple of weeks later, I saw a job listing for a job I was pretty sure I could get, but it was 2.5 hours away from home (in Richmond) in the Shenandoah Valley. I asked hubs if I should apply, and he said GO FOR IT. So I did, and by July 6, I was working at my new job, with a 12K raise, and by July 15, we moved to our new home (which is gorgeous) and left the big city behind, where our house is currently being rented by a nice couple that probably actually mows the grass and pays their bills on time. More power to them, I say.

SO, big news NOW: I'm about to be a mama. T MINUS 18 DAYS AND COUNTING. That's right: a baby is going to expel itself from my body, violently, any day now. And I did this...on purpose. One thing that makes it seem like a fabulous prospect, however, is knowing I'll get to show my kid all the movies that I love and turn him into a weird hippie nerd like me. Awesome.
