My name is Laura.



I am in my late twenties. I live in Austin, Texas, with my new-ish husband Kevin, and our pets Hazel, Wink and Lennie Briscoe. I enjoy college sports (particularly my Jayhawks), old movies, popcorn, outdoor dining, Scrabble, bourbon, pretzels, bad reality television, and the Chicago Blackhawks. I'm learning to be a better cook.

BORING THINGS I'VE TALKED ABOUT
GPOYs
My husband
My wedding
Losing weight and wearing dresses

OH HONEY.
I’m back from Europe and tired and so happy. Recaps to follow, I’m about to get ‘noxious.

STATESIDE UPDATE:
Went to Arkansas for the 4th of July. Got to see my parents’ dogs (including new puppy), swim, eat, swim, drink, swim and drink, and also swim.
Obviously I got a sunburn
Currently reading American Gods by Neil Gaiman and loving it
Currently catching up on The Leftovers and feeling too scared to like it
Just left work, turned on my Out of Office and got my inbox down to zero
Getting on a plane tomorrow that lands in another country. OH GOD I’M NERVOUS
And I’m going to miss my dogs
The end

Monday Life Updates

  • Still working a lot
  • Still excited about Berlin and Prague
  • I just bought a hoodie to wear in Europe. A hoodie. If you know how much I love cold weather, you should understand how thrilled this makes me.
  • Going to Hot Springs for Fourth of July, which means I can hide from fireworks which I hate, and I can also swim in a saltwater pool which I love.
  • Saw Obvious Child. My Twitter review: Obvious Child was wonderful, funny, sweet and made me cry. Bonus points for being able to watch it in a theatre filled with old people. You should see it but be warned: there are a lot of poop jokes.
  • Temp-fostering this sweetheart from Austin Pets Alive! Want a little mommy (literally— she gave birth to sweet puppies nine weeks ago [getting spayed Thursday])? She’s the best and I promise if you adopt her I will always offer to petsit.

The end!

Comparison is an act of violence against the self.

EuroTrip

Hi. Have you ever visited Berlin or Prague, or perhaps Dresden or Hamburg or Leipzig? What were your favorite things to do there?
