Nashville

Talk about my booty on the internet?

Don’t mind if I do. And in case you think I’m a fraud because I’ve said I’m not training anymore, I ran 5 miles on the treadmill last night, and 7 outside on Saturday.  So, see?  I’m still doing my thang (although last year at this time, I was running 12 miles, so YES I…

Mid-week update

I’m still alive.  I’m here.  But I have been a blogging failure lately.  Let me see if I can catch you up a little bit. After writing songs in Nashville all weekend, I began my Valentine’s Day by walking into the Nashville office and surprising my co-workers.  “It’s a Valentine’s miracle!” said Emily, because she…

Update: running

I am registered for the Country Music Half-Marathon in Nashville in April. Long story short: I’ve basically given up any hard-core training. Short story long: My life is so full right now.  I don’t have the hours in the week to put in the miles, nor do I have the desire to give anything up…

This one goes out to the Honda

I still cannot believe it. – – – – – – – – Yesterday, my dad called the Honda “the Grey Goose.”  Then, Becca called it “Hans.”  Both of these things strike me as hilarious since the Honda never really had a name. – – – – – – – – Remember when the Honda…

The last blog of the year

Songbirds

My friend Haley Shaw is utterly lovely.  She sings like an angel, and is wicked smart and real, and is one of the most beautiful people I’ve ever seen up close. I’ve been listening to her song “Iowa City” on repeat this week.  It’s good, y’all.  Real good. There are these two other girls in…

O-Emma-G

Fanciness, merriment, and roistering. Bacon-wrapped jalapeños stuffed with cheese. And then, as if the night couldn’t get any more awesome, KARAOKE. And even better, twirling at ROBERT’S. I didn’t even look like a hobo. Today, though?  I totally do. Lordy.

Holiday hobo girl

This is the week, the one that happens every December, the one that I always tell myself that I’ll do differently next year but I never do. It’s the week before Christmas, which always seems to be busier than the week of Christmas.  Parties, people, events, high heels, big hair, sugar, wine, beer, money that…
