Game of Thrones: The End of an Era

Ok, ok, this post has been written pre-finale. But it's looking like my Daenerys costume was as well-chosen as my Melisandre costume from a few years ago:

An  hour later

Despite a few questionable episodes this season, Game of Thrones has been excellent and I'm sad to see it go. From the first, very confusing episode Boyfriend and I watched together:

Who woulda thought that Bran makes it to S8E6!

To the central role of dragons a few seasons later....


This show had it all. By "all" I mean lots of sex and violence, but also great storytelling and fun hairstyles. 

Farewell, game of thrones. Maybe one day, George R R Martin will finish those books (spoiler alert: he won't).

We're Back!

Hi everyone - we're home! I survived the airplane, and we had a great time on the west coast for a week. Here are some highlights of things I experienced for the first time. 

THAT'S RIGHT. THEY HAVE MOUNTAINS ON THE WEST COAST. It's really the wildest thing. 

Dogs of the sea, I say. 

And last but not least:

Like I said, a great trip!

Leaving on a Jet Plane

Boyfriend and I are taking a vacation this week, and traveling to the west coast where a family member of his is getting married. This is the first time I'm meeting this part of his family, and the first time I'm traveling to the west coast. And the first time I'm flying in nearly 20 years. Do I have massive anxiety? MAYBE. 

All about that #projection lifestyle

Boyfriend travels all the time, but I do not. EVERYTHING about traveling is totally freaking me out.   

Wish me luck, you guys.

Boyfriend and I have had a terrible week. Our colleague passed away suddenly and unexpectedly after having a medical emergency in my office, and it's been tough. 

She's a wiggler.

Throwback Monday Blowfish Kitty

Hi all - 
Had a crazy busy weekend and no time for a new post this week. Here's an oldie I still enjoy! Have a great week! ~Gia

I'm trying to make Boyfriend's dog and kitty become friends. Unfortunately, every meeting has gone something like this:

It's not pretty. Clearly, hanging out with a dog is beneath her.

Yep, same ol same ol here.

March Madness

Luckily you don't need to be an expert in basketball to enjoy March Madness. Go teams! Also, pay those athletes.

Wellness, Part II

Last time we checked in, Boyfriend's cat was all better and I was actively dying. What's happening now?

YEP. Sorry, Boyfriend.

Wellness Update

First thing's first:

Yep, Boyfriend's kitty is back to his old dumb self. Hurray!

How was everyone else this week?

He did, which was very helpful.

But you know it's bad when your cat thinks you've been home too many days in a row. 

I'm finally feeling better, no thanks to her. Hope you all are getting through this flu season!
