the 20SB postcard exchange

the 20SB postcard exchange

When I shared my handwriting I wrote about how I think it’s sad that the written word is a dying art. There is something so much more personal about a handwritten note or letter, and as much as I love how easy Facebook, texting, and email make it for me to keep in touch with … Continue reading

What We Wore Wednesday

What We Wore Wednesday

Erin and I went to the Indianapolis Art Center in Broad Ripple to take some outfit pictures. The pictures were supposed to be a joke, but they kinda ended up looking real, except for the fact that mine are terrible quality because I used Microsoft Paint to edit them. I posted the details of my outfit just … Continue reading

the Indiana State Fair

the Indiana State Fair

The Indiana State Fair is pretty much exactly the same as the Ohio State Fair, so of course I had to go. Who doesn’t love fried food, carnival rides, barnyard animals, and people watching? Our first stop was the apple cider slush/corn on the cob booth. A weird combination, but both were delicious. Colin made … Continue reading

summer haul so far

summer haul so far

It’s summertime which means it’s yard sale season, which means I’ll probably collect an inordinate amount of nonsensical crap that I don’t need because I can’t resist a chance to nose around in someone else’s discarded belongings. Also, my birthday was last month, and I bought some cool stuff at the INDIEana Handicraft Exchange. So … Continue reading

INDIEana Handicraft Exchange

INDIEana Handicraft Exchange

Last weekend Erin and I went to the INDIEana Handicraft Exchange. It was so awesome! It was really hot outside and I got a little sunburned, but there were so many great vendors with awesome handmade wares to sell. I kind of spent too much money, but the things I snagged were totally worth it. … Continue reading

the Facebook game

the Facebook game

I took this idea from Nova, because why not? Rules: 1. Post your first ever Facebook profile picture 2. Pick one photo from each consecutive year up to the present one 3. Explain 2006: This photo was taken in Tomahawk, Wisconsin at a bonfire at my friend Joe’s house. I had just graduated from high … Continue reading

First Friday Food Truck Fest

First Friday Food Truck Fest

On the first Friday of every month from May through November, a bunch of Indy food trucks get together downtown at the Murat for the Food Truck Fest. You pay an admission fee for access to live music, beer, and a clusterfuck of some of the most delicious and unique “restaurants” that Indianapolis has to … Continue reading

2012 in photos

2012 in photos

Okay, so the first one is from 2011, but these are a few pictures of what I’ve been doing so far this year. December: It’s a tradition to go Christmas light cruising in my hometown, and there’s this one house that always looks like a face with a mustache. Classic. January: Colin and I went … Continue reading

garikfest 2012

garikfest 2012

Last weekend my friend Garik traveled to Indianapolis to visit me and Gretchen. Garik is one of my oldest friends–we’ve been buddies since eighth grade when we used to sit at the same table in science class. He’s been a real vagabond lately, hippying it up in St. Petersburg just blocks from where Jack Kerouac died in … Continue reading

St. Patrick's Day: Indy style

St. Patrick's Day: Indy style

This is the lovely view from our balcony door on St. Patrick’s Day. The weather was absolutely perfect for an all-day drink-a-thon, and I had an amazing time and didn’t even black out even though I started drinking around 1pm. Waking up on St. Patrick’s Day was more exciting for me than waking up on … Continue reading
