A Day In My Life

Today I’m giving you a little (humorous) sneak peek into a typical day in my summer life, narrating by gifs of one of my favorite shows Gilmore Girls.             

5:30 am: Ryan’s alarm goes off. There’s a 50/50% chance I hear it. Either way I remain in bed in a half asleep state. 

6:15 am: Ryan says “Good morning Babe, have a good day, see you tonight, I love you” in the sweetest way possible. I mumble something like “Good night, have a good night, love you”. He then leaves for the day. 

rorymorning
7:10 am: My alarm goes off. This is a joke alarm. Everyday I laugh at it. Ha ha, you think I”m actually going to get up on the first alarm? I hit snooze and lie back in bed.

7:19 am: Second alarm goes off. I can’t hit snooze fast enough. 

7:29 am: Third alarm goes off. I consider getting up.

7:32 am: I lie in bed and stare at my phone. My excuse is I must check the weather. You know, so I can see what to wear to work that day.

7:50 am: OMG how is it 7:50 already? What have I been doing for the past 18 minutes? (email, facebook, instagram, blog reading, twitter, repeat).

7:55 am: PANIC MODE. I must get up. I have to get up. But, I have nothing to wear. No time for make up. No time for cute outfits. I grab whatever is closet to me and is comfy and forgiving. I rotate the same basic and plain  6 summers dresses all summer for work. Stylin. 

nothigntowear
8:08: am: I’m dressed and running downstairs to pull together some type of breakfast and lunch to take to work.

8:10 am: I take Maggie out and then load her up in the car and leave the house, out of breath.

8:28 am: Drop Maggie, our adorable poodle, off at doggie day care at my Mom’s house.

poodles
8:29 am: I’m forced to do a quick drop off with Maggie and utter a quick “Hi Bye!” to my Mom.She always wants to chat. And although I wish our greeting could be more like this:

mom
There is no time for that. I’m basically already late for work. 

8:31 am: Arrive at work. Phew, only 1 minute late. 

8:35 am: I turn on my office computer and then coffee. Coffee before anything else. I can’t function without it. 

ggcoffeegif
8:35 am – 9:30 am: Respond to work emails and make a plan for the day. Very hard. Very sleepy.

morning
9:30 am – 12:00 pm. Work. Boring details you don’t care hearing about. (not like the minute by minute updates of my morning routine that left you on the seat of your chair)

11:00 am: Hungry, but will be strong and wait until noon to eat my lunch. 

12:01 pm: Sit down at my desk ready to eat my lunch. So hungry! Just as I’m about to put the first bite of salad into my mouth my boss runs over with an emergency. Something is wrong with our computers or internet connection. I’m recruited to try to fix it. This happens way too often. 

computerproblem
12:30 pm: Crisis solved. Eat lunch at my desk. 

12:40 pm  – 2:30 pm: Focus on work. This part of the day always flies by.

2:30 pm – 4:30 pm: Depending on my schedule, work on freelance projects either at home or at client’s office.

4:30 pm – 5:30 pm: Go to my mom’s to pick up Maggie and girl talk for a good big. Involves either gushing happily about our days or venting. She’s the best listener. 

mom2
5:30 pm: Head home and start making plans for the night. Sometimes I meet up with girlfriends. Other times I head to the gym or go straight home. Ryan won’t be home for another two hours at least. 

6:00 pm: Plans disappoint or change. Then I either don’t have one of the ingredients needed to make the dinner I was planning (and I”m too lazy to leave the house again to go back to the store) or Ryan texts saying he’ll be home late. 

flexible
6:20 pm: Try to brush it off. Get soaked into social media for far too long.

6:40 pm: Work out. Either at gym or at home. 

7:30 pm: Make dinner. If it’s this late, it’s usually some easy staple like salad, chicken and rice, mac and cheese, or pizza. This could explain the extra summer fun weight. 

7:45 pm: Yay Ryan’s home! Hugs and kisses from me. Death scratches of excitement from Maggie,

love
8:00 pm: We cozy up on the couch (sometimes dining room table if I made a nicer meal, like once a week) and stuff our faces. We are both starving. There is little talking. Just eating. 

cheersfood
8:10 pm: We are done eating. Ryan graciously cleans up the kitchen. We then sit and discuss our days. This usually leads to talking about the future. Which always leads to both of us being anxious and overly worried the future. Will Ryan find a job after graduation? Will he pass the bar?  How low is our bank account?  Where are we going to live next year? How will we get through another week? 

planning
8:40: Enough worries. Time to pour some drinks. We open some wine and relax and enjoy each other. After half a glass our worries turn into happy babbles about our hopes and dreams and encouraging statements like,  “We can do this!” and “All we need is love!”.

babbling
9:00 pm: We now  watch one of our TV shows before crashing for the night. We binge watch shows intensely. Having finishing the second season of Orange is the New Black about a week after it was released we’ve been at a loss at what to watch. We just started The Following. I haven’t had a peaceful night of sleep since. 

tvshow
10:30 pm: Time to head upstairs. We cozy up in bed and read before saying “lights out”. Hands down, this is my favorite part of the day.

I had fun linking up today with Leslie today for her Confessional Friday: Day in the Life!

An Interview With My Husband (men say the darndest things)

interview with ryan

After seeing Maeg from The Modern Tulip post this fun and silly interview with her husband I just knew I had to participate.

I talk about my husband, Ryan a lot but we don’t really ever get to see things from his perspective that often. So today he’s getting his chance to shine by answering a few very important questions:

Me: What is the name of my blog?
Ryan: A Beautiful Little Adventure

Me: What do I typically write about?
Ryan:  Either food recipes or reflections on life

Me: What’s a popular fashion item for women right now?
Ryan:  Seriously? Um…Um…jeggings? (Barf Ryan) I have no idea. That’s what I see all the girls wearing in Center City Philadelphia all day. Isn’t that what they’re called? (let it be known that I do not own a pair of jeggings)

Me: Why do women go to the bathroom together?
Ryan: To talk and gossip 

Me: What do you know about Pinterest?
Ryan:  It’s a place where people post different idea about things, anything you can possibly think of is on there, like all the meals you cook for me or craft you want to do. 

Me: If you could have any job what would it be?
Ryan: A weather guy in California, because the majority of my job would be sitting outside saying, it’s sunny, it’s warm and they get paid a whole lot of money to be on TV for like a minute. And it’s one of the only professions that you can be absolutely wrong  but still keep your job. That or get paid to sleep all day. (wow he’s really thought this through)

Me: What about me?
Ryan: Most definitely a mom. Or  an author or the executive producer of Teen Mom 2. (I have no idea where the producer idea came from other than the fact that I love watching Teen Mom 2 haha)

Me: What’s the best place to shop for women?
Ryan:  J Crew outlet because the real store is too expensive. Also Old Navy because it’s affordable and you can’t go wrong with basic generic stuff.

Me: What does YOLO stand for?
Ryan:  You only live once.

Me: What About OOTD?
Ryan: Am I supposed to know this?  I have absolutely no idea.

Me: What is our favorite thing to do together?
Ryan: Go on long weekends or day trips. 

Me: What do I do when I’m home alone?
Ryan:  Cook, watch all the girl TV shows that I don’t like to watch. Clean. Blog. 

Me: What is my favorite activity?
Ryan: Reading

Me: What do women keep in their purse?
Ryan: wallet, receipts, tampons, little make up things, pepto bismal, sunglasses, endless pit of other stuff

Me: And what do you do when you’re home alone?
Ryan: Go CRAZY! No. I watch tv shows like The West Wing and The Wire and Family Guy, pick up around the house, and sleep. 

Me: What’s my favorite accessory?
Ryan: Big necklaces and bangles. 

Me: What celebrity would you let me have a free pass with?
Ryan: Leonardo DiCaprio because I know how much you love him, maybe that will help him win an Oscar. (Too cute Ryan, too cute)

Me: What celebrity would you like to have a free pass with?
Ryan: Crap now I have to think of one. Jennifer Anniston. (This kind of shocks me)

Me: What’s an acceptable amount to spend on a makeup item?
Ryan: $10. (yikes, don’t look at my Sephora bills!)

Me: What’s an acceptable amount to spend on a dress?
Ryan: $200. (Wow, good to know! Let is be known that the only dresses I’ve bought over $150 were for wedding related events. After I told him that he said, “I take it back! I take it back!”)

Me: What is your favorite trait about me, not physical?
Ryan: I love that you’re always optimistic and that you’re always reminding me that life is an adventure and to not let the bad overwhelm me and to not lose sight of the big picture.

Me: What’s my favorite TV show?
Ryan: Gilmore Girls (Cute that’s one of my top 3! I didn’t even know he knew about it)

Me: Who is a current celebrity “it” couple?   
Ryan: Um. No clue. Can I flip through one of your US Weeklys quick? Um…is Selena Gomez seeing someone these days? (he starts flipping through an Us Weekly) Oh! I got it! Kim and Kanye! (I guess he doesn’t listen when I blabber about this stuff)

Me: Anything else you’d like to say?
Ryan:  Sorry, what? (he was busy still flipping through the Us Weekly) Look it’s Taylor Swift taking her Scottish fold cat out in NYC. (Blank stare) I know how much you love Taylor, so i thought i’d tell you. Is that all the questions?

Birthday Celebration in Annapolis

My husband, Ryan and I, have the unique fortune of having birthdays only days apart. He turned 29 on Friday while I turn 31 on Wednesday and you can bet we spent this weekend celebrating. We spent the weekend living it up in one of my favorite cities, Annapolis!

birthday fun in annapolis

A while back we decided to book a weekend getaway for our birthdays – something to look forward to during the long and bitter winter. Annapolis, MD was an easy choice. I lived in Annapolis from ages 22-26 and still feel like I’m at home when visiting. I took Ryan when we first started dating and he fell in love with the quaint town as well. We try to make a trip down a few times a year.

What’s great about going to the same town over and over? Since you’ve already seen it all, you can have no agenda and have fun just taking in all the sights, people watching, and enjoying all of your favorite hot spots.

This weekend we stayed in the charming Robert Johnson House (part of the Historic Inns of Annapolis).

Robert Johnson House Annapolis Lodging

The Inn dates back to 1773. Our street level room faced out to the Governor’s Mansion lawn and the State House. It was an ideal location and within blocks of all our favorite shops, bars, and restaurants not to mention the waterfront.

We kicked off the weekend at my number one favorite spot in Annapolis – Mexican Cafe!

Mexican Cafe Annapolis Margaritas

This may seem strange to some as it’s not a seafood restaurant or even that unique or trendy of a place, and the food is only so so, but you come for the margaritas! Oh the margaritas! They mix in a little everclear and it’s magic. I use to come here at least once a week – dangerous!

katie at mexican cafe margarita in annapolis

After our lunch we were primed to walk around the historic district. My favorite shop is Paws, a fun pet boutique. Fact: this is the only store that I buy Maggie’s collars from.

Paws dog and cat pet boutique annapolis md

The owners are so friendly and welcoming. You can tell just how passionate they are about dogs and cats. After stocking up on some collars we spent the next 2 hours milling about town, aweing at the architecture and gorgeous historical homes, people watching, and window shopping.

Next we headed into Chart House to share some Blue Crab Dip and some Manhattans at their waterfront bar. The sun was beginning to set and it was that perfect twilight hour. We were so cozy it was hard for us to leave. But we headed back to the Inn to shower and change for the evening.

sunset in annapolis chesapeake bay We spent the night bar hopping to other favorites. At the newer, Red Red Wine Bar we ran into a bachelorette party that invited us to partake in their bachelorette party card game (think a card deck with each card instructing you to do different activities like “pinch a guys butt” or “sing a song”) I never turn down a chance to play a game! We had a blast with the girls and a few other people we met at the bar. What always marvels me is the friendliness of the people we meet here. In our hometown it feels like everyone is set in their ways and not keen on meeting new friends, almost like they’re adverse to anyone new. We were having a blast and pretty soon it was past midnight.

katie and ryan birthday in annapolis Never one to want the night to end, I insisted we head over to Level for one last drink….and then I wanted to follow that up with pizza…apparently I was trying to convince myself I was still 21 and not turning 31.

Sunday was complete with a nice brunch followed by a long chat sitting on a bench facing the water. I couldn’t think of a better way to welcome growing older.

It was hard going back to work – but I have more birthday fun to look forward to this week. Yay for weeklong celebrations!

Never been to Annapolis? On Thursday I’ll be back sharing my Top Ten Attractions in Annapolis, Md!

Something Is Coming

beach north carolina abla

Something is coming.

Each night the sun decides to dance together a little longer. She arrives earlier in the morning, excited to spread her warmth over us. She knows we crave it so and she delights in our dance as we linger a little longer under her rays.

Something is coming.

katie jumping on the beach sunset

It feels like bare feet gracefully stepping on large blades of grass colored in the most luscious color of green. It feels like farm fresh air grazing between your outspread fingers as you sway your hand outside your window to your favorite song. It feels like your favorite Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream melting off the cone and down between your fingers. It feels like warm sand that you move around with your feet as you pour yourself into a new novel. It feels like you’ve just woken up from an afternoon nap and have an entire evening ahead of you. It fees like possibility.

reading a book on the beach abla

It smells like chlorinated pool water dripping of tan bodies laying on bright beach towels. It smells like burgers and hot dogs on your neighbors grill. It smells like fresh ocean air, opening your lungs and making your soul feel young. It smells like fresh rain on hot pavement. It smells like burning sparklers joyfully competing with fireflies to light up the night sky. It smells like suntan lotion that your brother has slapped half haphazardly on your back but you don’t mind, you have the whole day in the ocean ahead of you.

summer swimming in the poool

It tastes like juicy tomatoes freshly picked from the local farm. It tastes like salt water meeting your lips. It tastes like ice-cold cocktails giving you that day time buzz. It tastes like the purest and coldest water that you must gulp down after going for a long run. It tastes like bright red strawberries, juicy watermelon, and plump peaches that taste as good as candy.

margarita on the beach katie abla

It sounds like ice clinking in glasses brimmed with condensation. It sounds like gulls cawing over the crashing wave. It sounds like music blasting from car windows, decks, and lawns. It sounds like basketballs pounding, bat cracking, children shrieking, and skateboards rolling. It sounds like voices filling the warm night air as friends chat outside late into the night. It sounds like cicadas filling the night air, reminding us that even the dark can’t quiet the fun of the season.

Summer is coming. It really is. I couldn’t be more ready.

Maggie Takes Over the Blog

maggie shih tzu poodle winery

Hello readers of my mom’s blog, I’m Maggie! Well actually, my real name is Maggie May. I’m named after the Rod Stewart song. Do you know it? I love it and I make my mommy dance with me while she screams sing it. Her singing is atorcious and she looks ridicolous dancing, but I love her because she’s my mommy. So you better be nice to her.

You may recognize me from all of the silly and embarrassing pictures my mom posts of me on this blog.

maggie sleepingI mean really Mom, would you like me to snap pictures of you sleeping and post them for all of the internet to see?

My mommy was a little busy this week so I decided to jump on board here and do a guest post for her. I’ve been wanted to do this for like 45 billion years, mainly because my favorite TV show is Dog With a Blog. I have no idea why she hasn’t let me do this before. I AM the main reason for her to be alive so I don’t know why I”m not the main focus of this blog. I think it should be named “A Beautiful Little Maggie” – my mom and dad are both telling me how pretty I am hundreds of times a day.
maggie poodle at christmas timeAnyways, I lead a very important life, so I thought I’d walk you through a morning in Maggie’s world.

I know it must be a weekday when my mommy wakes up at 7:14 (on weekends me, mom, and dad all snuggle in bed and play peekaboo and other fun dog games) and gets ready for work. I try my best to ignore her and stay curled up in my warm spot on the bed. She keeps telling me that it’s time to get up, that we have to go, but I don’t really believe her. (Maybe this is another game?).

maggie shih tzu poodle cuddles By 8 she is downstairs clicking my leash and using her stern voice. Still, I refuse to leave my perfect spot in bed until I hear her utter the words “Time to go to Grandma’s!”. Once I hear those words I fly down the stairs as quick as possible. (We go to Grandma’s every weekday but every morning I forget, it’s kind of embarrassing and I’d rather not talk about it.) Going to Grandma’s is the best thing you can imagine. You wouldn’t understand unless you met my Grandma.

grandma of dogsShe is my FAVORITE person (outside of my mom and dad of course). Her house is perfect, her couches are perfect, her food is perfect, her lap is perfect, and she spoils me rotten. Also, my bff Bonnie lives at Grandmas. Bonnie is the only other dog that has my heart. She just gets me is all.

poodle and westie  I tell her everything and we take care of one another. I can be a big scaredey cat some days – I can’t seem to forget these awful people who use to own me and did awful things to me before my Mommy came along and adopted me. Now, I really only trust a few people. Most of my heart belongs to Bonnie though. She made me realize that life is supposed to be fun and full of balls, and barking, and running.two dogs running and playing

So we hop in my mommy’s car which I HATE. I don’t know WHO invented these things but they are the WORST! I’m eight years old and have ridden in the car every weekday for the past 2 years and I’m still terrified of riding in the car. Can someone please tell me why my mom who treats me like a baby everywhere else refuses to let me sit in her lap in the car? So rude!

She tries to soothe me by talking to me in her favorite baby voice (I keep telling her I’m no longer a baby but she doesn’t listen) but it doesn’t work. She keeps repeating “We’re going to see Bonnie! We’re going to see Grandma!” but I don’t believe her. Why can’t we just walk there? I love walking! I never understood why Grandma, Grandpa, and Bonnie have to live in a different house? Seems like such a simple idea to me. I wish it was summer time again because then my mommy magically makes the window go down and I can stick my head out and get distracted by all the smells of this big world we are flying through.

to and from Grandma's everyday The drive lasts about 8 hours (even though mom says it’s only 12 minutes). I shake and tremble the whole time. You better listen to my advice – never ride in a car while it is raining. It is seriously the worst thing. It sounds like the world is crashing down all around you. When it’s raining I take back everything about baby talk. Mommy, please talk to me in your highest pitch baby talk ever. Also sing. I love that. Especially Taylor Swift.

After a few hours, we pull into Grandma’s neighborhood. I’m super smart so I know what it looks like. I bark and bark and wag my tail so Mommy knows that we are close too (she must be terrified of the car too, right?!). Once we get to Grandmas I can barely wait to get inside to greet Bonnie. All memories of the car vanish and I go nose to nose with my best friend. I lift my leg and let her smell me and then I do the same with her. We have to make sure everything is a okay! (I told you we are besties) We then run around a bit. We have so much to catch up on since it’s been a whole 15 hours since we’ve seen each other!

poodle and westie looking out of the door Grandma makes a huge fuss over me. I let out cries of happiness and nearly scratch her to death by jumping up on her. That’s the best way to show that you love someone.

In the background I hear Mommy saying goodbye, but I could care less, I’m at Grandma’s! Plus, I’m kind of mad that she leaves me all day to go to something called “work”. Doesn’t she understand how much fun she is missing out at Grandma’s? Or how much more fun we could have had if we stayed at home and cuddled and went for long walks, and she threw my ball for me for hours?

If someone would just listen to me, the world could be a much better place.

winery maggie Well the couch is calling my name. Time to nap and dream of chasing bunnies and balls edamame (I love that stuff!). If you love me, maybe my mom will let me come back and blog another day?

Puppy kisses,

Maggie May

 

14 Random Things About Me

Katie and Maggie and wine slushies

I thought it was time to spill the beans about a few random things about me. I like to look at this blog as a casual chat I’m having with you over a glass of wine (or cup of coffee if you prefer!) so why don’t we get to know each other a little better?

Also, in 2014, I’m trying to respect my individuality and celebrate everything about myself. So I thought I’d do 14 facts for 2014 and I love even numbers. Plus, I think these things are pure and simple fun and I love reading other bloggers random facts.

So let’s do this!

1. Sometimes, I listen to the same CD on repeat in my car for months at a time.

2. I played the trumpet until I was 18, and was pretty good!

3. I’m that crazy girl who talks to her dog a lot and makes her talk back. I have very serious conversations with my dog, ALL THE TIME.

4. It’s kind of weird how excited I am to watch the new Lifetime version of “Flowers in the Attic”

5. As soon as I open a bottle of wine, it seems to vanish into thin air. How does it go so fast?

7. I love ketchup and have been known to dip everything from pickles, chips, veggies, and bread into it.

8. Sleeping is one of my favorite hobbies. I could ALWAYS take a nap.

9. I’m terrified of rollers coasters, heights, and anything that goes super fast. No way Jose!

10. I haven’t eaten red meat since I was 19.

11. I can’t swallow pills with water. I have to chew up food and then swallow them with the food.

12. I taught myself how to kiss by rewwatching Angela Chase’s (Claire Danes) and Jordan Catalono’s (Jared Leto’s) first kiss on My So Called Life over and over and over on VHS.

13. Not much makes me happier than singing and watching people sing karaoke.

14. I find nothing wrong with dressing up my dog in ridiculous outfits. Even though she hates it.

Favorite Moments of 2013

Christmas is over.

I’m back at work, sitting at my desk trying not to cry that there is no more Christmas music, movies, or people being extra nice. The Christmas hangover seems four times worse this year.

Know why? Because it’s been a pretty damn great year over here. As I grow older, I feel like I’m always saying something similar to, “This was the best year yet!!!”. But truly, this year was full of so much love and growth. Each year is a blessing and I feel like I become more and more aware of that as I accumulate more years under my belt – which in turn makes my days so much fuller.

And it’s not just the big blessings, like vacations, our wedding, and success at school and work. The smaller everyday moments, when added all together, turn our life into the beautiful masterpiece we will look fondly back on when we are in our 80’s talking about the good old days. I’m talking about the good morning kisses, the sing a longs in the kitchen, the chats with parents, the meals with Pop-Pop, the walks around our neighborhood. That is life. That is what we will remember.

Who knows what 2014 holds for us. We have some hopes but fate is always full of surprises. But I never give up on our hopes, they are what define us as a person and couple. We look forward to the adventure.

As we prepare to say goodbye to another year, I wanted to share five of my favorite BIG moments of 2013.

1. New Years 2013 in Vieques, Puerto Rico

Vieques Puerto RicoDecember 31, 2012 it was a blustery and cold day as Ryan and I boarded a flight headed to a very small island off of Puerto Rico. Veiques is a gorgeous island with some of the most pristine and tourist free beaches in the world. There is only one hotel on the island. All other accommodations are inns and rentals. We had quite an adventure staying in a waterfront apartment, exploring the island on a jeep and checking out the local cafes. Other highlights included the Bioluminescent Bay kayak tour, wild horses, and getting lost in the jungle.

New Years eve was spent dancing in the street to a Puerto Rican band with about 100 other revelers, sipping drinks out of paper cups, and dipping our feet in the ocean. You cannot beat that for New Years!!

2. My 30th Birthday/Bachelorette combo Party

On March 26 I turned 30 and was excited about it! Most people are hesitate about saying goodbye to their youth. Not me, I’m celebrating getting older – it’s a gift some people are never able to receive…not to mention my 20’s were a MESS! I loved my casual joint 30th Birthday/Bachelorette party at a cabin in the mountains. It was a small group of just my bridesmaids. We had so much fun just being silly together, shopping, eating, drinking, making YOLO t-shirts, hot tubbing it, and singing karaoke. It’s rare for all of us to be together – so it was really special to me.

3. Our Wedding

I think this is pretty self-explanatory – but yes I loved every minute of our wedding and most of every minute of our wedding planning. I loved sharing our vows to each other in front of all our family and friends. I loved having an excuse to get all of our family and friends together for a big party. I loved all the preparations and how it was a reason for my Mom and I to bond for 6 months. And yes, I loved my dress. It was a simple yet elegant Sunday and we were very lucky.

4. My Mom’s Surprise 60th Birthday Party!

On July 9 my mom and best friend turned 60! After all that she did for me for my wedding I wanted to give her a big celebration. Together, Ryan, my dad, and I planned a SURPRISE birthday party at Ryan and I’s house. My mom loves all things beach and ocean related so the theme was easy. I had a blast planning and preparing all ocean themed decorations and food. About thirty guests attended and we managed to keep the surprise under wraps. The night was so much fun!

5. Taylor Swift Concert with Kay Marie 

 Also in July, my bff and I went to go see Taylor Swift in concert for our second time together. I have no shame in expressing my complete love for Tay Tay. People can knock her relationships and music as much as they want, I will never waver. Girl is talented, driven, positive, and a great role model. We had so much fun rocking out with all the teens and moms at the sold out stadium. We even had fun waiting for 1.5 hours in between sets until a terrible thunder storms passed through. I’m so happy by bestie shares my love of Taylor!
