Messing with my husband’s phone… and his sanity

marriage lets you annoy one special person for the rest of your life

The web browser on my husband’s phone saves his last 3 Google searches. Apparently a lot of phone browsers do this and most people just turn this feature off, but Craig prefers to keep it on (not sure why). One night while he was studying, I took his phone and noticed that his last 3 searches …

What has changing my name really changed?

hello my name is

I’ve finally finished the last steps of changing my name after marriage. I didn’t do a legal name change; I just assumed my husband’s name. But still – the process of changing all my ID, important documents, and accounts was a huge pain in the ass. It took almost a year, but I’m finally done! Why …

How long would you last in an apocalypse?

This year, I rang in the New Year quietly at home with my husband, enjoying some pizza, a bottle of wine and AMC’s The Walking Dead marathon. I have a mild obsession with the show, which actually sparked me to watch World War Z not long ago. In case you haven’t seen it, World War …

rather do than a pap test, pap test quote, funny quote about pap test

I’ve managed to get away with only 1 pap test my entire life. It was in 2010 and I remember the dry “Indian burn” feeling of her not using any gel. When that part was over she said, “Now I’m gonna put my hand inside to check… (I must’ve blacked out after “hand inside” because I …

Okay, I have to blog about this. What is with the stick figure family decals I keep seeing on cars lately? When I saw one for the first time, I thought, “Weird. Not sure why you would want everyone to know you have a wife, kid and dog. But sure.” Definitely thought they were strange, but …

Things kids can get away with… that adults would be judged for if we did in public

kid picking his nose

A few weeks ago, I had 2 back-to-back evenings surrounded by friends and family who have small kids.

I googled what a Goan & Viet baby would look like… and I’m scared

When we first got engaged, we were inundated with these questions: Did you set a date? When’s the big day? Are you planning a big wedding? When will we get our invitations? Can’t wait for the wedding! We got so annoyed that we eloped. Now that we’re married, it seems the questions we get asked …
