Review Extravaganza-Part 3

The transition from summer to fall is a tricky one. Like astronauts returning from space. We had to re-enter the atmosphere of school carefully, so the sudden change in pressure wouldn’t kill us. –The Wonder Years

This part of the year was definitely the most fun. I did have some bouts of loneliness, but overall we had a very busy, very fun summer.


I became a terrible dog mom.

We walked across the Golden Gate Bridge.

I had to say goodbye to Monica and Chandler for a whole year. Miss them both terribly!

I learned how to make Cuban pulled pork sandwiches. Try this recipe, you will thank me later!

I also shot a hand gun for the first time, and much to my surprise, I enjoyed it!


I threw myself into earning money online to help contribute to our down payment. I was featured on Janette’s Friend to Friend Match Up with my Bloggy BFF Impulsive Addict. That was pretty kick ass!  We spent a lot of free time house hunting. We saw doozies like the house with the fireplace big enough for me to live in:

I celebrated with the Wolf Pack for Geeky’s Bachelorette Party.

and we took our annual trip to Carmel. We rode bikes, kayaked, and enjoyed an amazing trip with Match’s family.


Match and I survived our first year of marriage and can no longer claim we’re newlyweds. Sigh.

I also wrote this sappy little post and included a wedding video, just in case you really want to soak up the sappiness.

I introduced the world to  Triple B.

I turned 28 and celebrated a very mellow birthday. But it was more than made up for by the white water rafting trip that Match took me on.

and the month ended on a bang with Geeky’s beautiful wedding.

Wow, I can’t believe we did all that in just three months!



    Video would play on my iPad but will be back to watch it as I love things like that.

    That fireplace is insane! I have never shot a gun, I have held one though.
    Thanks so much for linking up, I have your point recorded.

    WHAT? I thought you were saving up money for our meet-up?

    Oh wait. That was me. I forgot.

    And I TOTALLY forgot to add in that I was featured with you on Janette’s page! CRAP! I will be honest…I didn’t read through all my old posts like I should have. I was running out of time! I waited until late last night to throw something together.

    Looking at that picture of White Water Rafting makes me want to go!

    Thanks for linking up my bloggy bestie! If I don’t talk to you, I hope you have a great Christmas! xoxo

    That pork looks so good!

    And your wedding video is so sweet! I’m feeling extra sappy tonight–you both were such a cute couple, I mean ARE such a cute couple cause you’re still together and all. OK, it’s much too late for me to be commenting.

    Have a very merry Christmas!

Your comments make my day!
