Borders is sadly going out of business. Earlier this week, Hubs and I biked over to our neighborhood Borders to check out the barren shelves to pick through the leftovers of their sale.

Happy Birthday Hubs!

I’m a little behind on this… but due to the amazingness of WordPress, I can backdate it! Happy Birthday Hubs! (And happy 8 months of being hitched. 8 months down. Forever left to go!) We celebrated with a nice gathering of friends at the local Thai restaurant and we followed it up with another dinner […]
