Amsterdam Day 4: Windmills and Fireworks

Amsterdam Day 4: Windmills and Fireworks

Waking up to a brilliant blue sky, we made our way to Pancakes Amsterdam for breakfast. It was a bitter day and we patiently waited outside for a table to open up in the tiny restaurant. From the line that quickly formed behind us it became apparent we’d lucked out and had arrived between two rushes.


We both ordered traditional dutch pancakes, which I knew were larger and thinner than American pancakes. I was not expecting it to be massive. My pancake had spinach, pine nuts and goat cheese. (You’ll notice that goat cheese is a favorite of mine.) It was delicious and perfectly filling. Continue reading “Amsterdam Day 4: Windmills and Fireworks”


2016: Goals for a New Year

2016: Goals for a New Year

I’m almost a week late with this post but I have a good excuse… Ryan and I were in Amsterdam over the New Year and just got back. Keep an eye out as I’m planning on posting a few blog posts and sharing some pictures. (If you follow me on instagram and twitter you may have seen a few but I will be posting some extras here.)

Over the years I’ve occasionally attempted New Year’s resolutions and have mostly failed at them. Very typically, I’ve done great for a few weeks and then stopped when I got too busy or it became too much of a chore to stick with it. So this year, I’m not setting resolutions but am going to share some goals and over the months I’ll check in on how I’m doing and essentially grade myself. This is partially inspired by Wil Wheaton’s Life Reboot.

So the goals for 2016 are:

A New Year – New Goals

Welcome to 2014 everyone!

I’ve never been a big fan of New Year’s resolutions.  Often New Years falls at an inconvenient time in my schedule to start a new routine.  For example, right now I am in the middle of rehearsals for a show.  This means my evenings are busy, not allowing me much free time to tackle new plans or a new routine.

However, I usually try to set goals for the year.  This year, my goal is to post regular entries here as well as post vlog videos at least every other week on our youtube channel starting next week.

This year I want to continue learning ukulele.  Practice yoga more often.  Win NaNoWriMo. Attend GenCon. Play more games.  And generally live life to it’s fullest (while still indulging myself in introverted days of netflix binging and cuddling on the couch).

Here’s hoping 2014 is awesome!
