As someone who sometimes throws parties for a living, I’ve found that I can insert my own ideas into what kind of party Harry wants. I’ve also discovered most ways to make anything 180 times more difficult than it needs to be. This is somewhat fine when you have an only child, who is turning [...]
A few months ago, Harry turned five. And after much debate, he decided to have a golf party (there’s more about that process here). Soon after, I discovered there were no ready-to-go children’s golf party invitations to be found. For the record, there are dozens of choices involving soccer, baseball, football, and basketball…but no golf. [...]
This is Harry’s favorite version of his favorite song. And it is impossible for me to get this out of my head. Therefore, I’ve been humming it almost constantly since September. I’m wondering if it will have the same affect on you.
Unlike my down-the-street neighbors, who thought it fitting to put up their Decorated Tree after Labor Day (Keep Austin Weird!), I have a hard time celebrating Christmas (because we celebrate Christmas) before December 1.

Last night, we had a dinner party. And we gourded out. (All the recipes are here). I should also mention that I don’t need to eat again for three weeks. Soy gourdo.
Remember I said I wanted to live in the NYC Ace Hotel bathroom? Well, we’re moving that bathroom into our house this weekend. Because nothing says “Thanksgiving” like tearing the walls apart. Right? So far we’ve done this. And this. And this. Awesome, right? I’ll keep you posted on the progress.
