All the Random Things.

>> I can't stop laughing at that e-card. I didn't actually wake up on the wrong side of the bed or have a bad attitude, but I am extremely sleepy & being a real human is probably not going to happen today. Amir is off at work today and although I would love to tell you that I will probably be a total baller and go explore some of Hanoi today, I'm going to be honest & let you know that in actuality, I'll be hanging out under the amazingly comfortable hotel comforter in my PJs until I get hungry enough to get up. No shame.

>> People in America are enjoying their lives with Blue Bell again now and for that, I hate all of you who have been given the wonderful opportunity to partake. Anyone want to send me a tub of Homemade Vanilla and a tub of Dutch Chocolate?! I'll love you forever and pay my gratitudes to you in the form of utter happiness & virtual hugs. 

[Weekending] Hello from Hanoi.

Monday, August 31, 2015

Hiya friends!

I'm coming at you live from Hanoi this gorgeous morning! Amir has work here for a few days & then a long weekend at the end of this week, so we thought we would make a trip out of Vietnam and do some exploring. Ever since we moved to SE Asia, Amir has had Vietnam on his "must visit" list and with the timing working out so perfectly, we finally get to make his "Good morning, Vietnam" dreams come true!

On Saturday morning (yep, again with that ridiculous 4 am wake up call & 7 am flight stuff), we hopped up out of bed and made our way to the airport so we could get to Ho Chi Minh for the weekend.

As many of y'all know Ho Chi Minh played a heavy part of the Vietnam War against America and I'll be totally honest right now to say that I just don't know much about the history of the war because I have never been a history buff. That being said, being in Ho Chi Minh for the last two days was a seriously humbling experience.

Having learned American history and always knowing that side of the story, it was very interesting to get the perspective from the other side in the war. The amount of machinery that was available to our military vs what was available to the Vietnamese is crazy and to hear the gruesome details of what both sides went through just makes my heart heavy. So many casualties, so much destruction and yet somehow, at the end of it all, Vietnam & the USA have been able to build their relationship and move past the terrible things they both did. It's all mind-boggling for me.

Oh Baby, Time Flies!

First of all, a massively heartfelt thank you from Amir and I for all the incredible outpouring of love & happiness over yesterday's announcement! We are so happy to finally share our big news and we ask that you continue to send us good thoughts / prayers / vibes for the remainder of this pregnancy!

Now before I go on much further for today's post, I just wanted to clear up for those of y'all who are wondering if this little ole blog here will become a baby blog, the answer is no. I won't be doing the weekly bump posts or updates, but if you're interested in anything specific because you're also preggo or are trying to conceive, please feel free to shoot me an email!

I don't know much about pregnancy and babies, so really, I want to continue to share all my crazy, whacko life adventures with y'all and I'll throw in some of my funny or more interesting baby / pregnancy stories now and again. That being said, believe me, with some of the stupid things I've done during this pregnancy (i.e. forgotten what I meant to get from the living room and made 5 round trips between our bedroom and the living room before I finally remembered what I needed in the first place), you'll want to read the confessions I have for you ;)

I've Got a [Big, Huge, Massive] Secret to Confess.

Thursday, August 27, 2015

If you've been hanging around here lately, you know I've been super sporadic with my blog posts and that I've given y'all some mumbo jumbo about why. And you've probably noticed that I've mentioned there's a lot that's been going on in the land of Myra lately without too many details other than the fact that we're moving.

But now, now I think it's time to let y'all in on my secret...
