Weekly Small Pleasures #123
The last time I posted a "Weekly Small Pleasures" I was about 38 weeks pregnant. Today my baby girl is 3 weeks and 2 days. It has been a rollercoaster in the last few weeks but I'm ready to include some of the small pleasures as of late. This week I finally started to get a little bit more time and a bit more rest as my baby girl is kinda starting to get into a

Hasn't been that long since the last update but I'm getting so close. It could happen any minute now. There are a few things to report from the last three weeks, so here's my 39 week pregnancy update: (more…)

All The Beds I Have Slept In Around The World Since 2014

All The Beds I Have Slept In Around The World Since 2014
In the past, I blogged about all the beds I slept in around the world from 2008 to 2013. I think it's time for round two because there's been a lot of them including three moves across states. Amongst the beds around the world where I visited the REM world include a basement apartment, a few B&Bs, a few hotels, lots of Airbnbs, hometown bedrooms, a spiritual pilgrim retreat, a car, and an airplane.

I’m Not Just A Shy Introvert, I Have Social Anxiety

The Big Move From Utah To Texas In Photos

As you may know, we moved from Northern Utah to Central Texas last week. Logan to Austin. We drove there and it was quite the road trip. In fact, the longest one I've ever gone in. A lot of packing, mental and physical preparation, carrying, loading, unloading, had to be done. But I survived and even though I didn't have the best time ever, I dealt with it better than I imagined. (more…)

We Moved! (Again) Guess To Where?

The last couple of weeks were hectic because we were preparing for a cross-states move and actually moving. We packed and moved everything by ourselves, carried heavy boxes up and down stairs a million times, drove for 3 days straight (pretty much), and moved into a completely new environment. I'm still recovering. Vincent (Van Gato), our cat, came along. But we're still in transition. We still have to find a place to get settled down.
