Worst. Ending. Ever.

Spoiler alert: This post contains spoilers for both The Hunger Games trilogy and the Twilight saga.  For many reasons, I decided to jump on the bandwagon and read The Hunger Games trilogy.

The Twilight-Themed Baby Shower

Last Sunday, I co-hosted a Twilight-themed baby shower. I thought it was awesome. The expectant mom thought it was awesome. Therefore, it was awesome. Back story: My friend Shaina is pregnant with her fifth child. When she told me, I realized that she hadn’t met our group of friends until she was pregnant with her … Continue reading

Academy of Sciences

Jack’s school had an “in-service” day today, so a bunch of us went to the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco. Despite a rocky start, the day was enjoyable.

Real Life

(originally posted on LiveJournal) Aside from Disneyland, there has been lots going on. My neighbor’s 16 year old son was shot on his way to school two weeks ago. The news outlets butchered what really happened. It boils down to, the Kid was shot because he was wearing red pants. The papers attributed it to … Continue reading
