This past weekend, Ted and took an overnight trip down to Eugene! I’d heard excellent things about their food scene, so we wanted to see (err, taste) this for ourselves. Our verdict? Yes. The food, and the trip, rocked. We left for our trip on Saturday after lunch. In Salem, we stopped for coffee at […]

For the past couple years, I’ve belonged to a newlyweds group on Ravelry, and each summer, we put together a swap package for someone else in the group. We spend a month or two picking items that the swap partner would particularly enjoy, send it their way, and eagerly wait for package opening day. Well, Friday […]
Now, I’m not vegan. However, my husband is, and I’ve been cooking entirely vegan meals for the past 4 and a half years. I have a great appreciation for restaurants that do the whole vegan thing right. About a month ago, Ted and I attended a dinner at Portobello Vegan Trattoria benefitting Farm Animal Rights […]
A week and a half ago, Ted and I attended the Hops and Heat beer social at the Portsmouth Brewery here in town. This social paired spicy hot foods with hoppy beers, which go together nicely!
Writing in this blog every day has been HARD. Man. I used to write SO MUCH back in the day. It’s funny, because I do a lot more with my time now than I did back then, so I figured I’d have more to say.
See this girl from the end of 2002 drinking a delicious Vanilla Coke? Yeah, that used to be me. My name is Aubrey and I’m a former soda junkie. I grew up with a strange history with soda. As a kid, my parents only let me drink soda on the weekends, so I’d eagerly wait […]
This is a sleeve. A very pretty sleeve. Look what I’ve picked up again; my Arisaig cardigan! Actually, I picked it up again sometime in December, but I didn’t really ramp up my progress on the sleeves until recently. I never really talked about the disaster that struck me last fall; I knit a sleeve, […]
Little by little, I’m answering all the questions that were asked of me two months ago. Two! This next set of questions comes from Carol, a friend of mine from one of my local knitting groups. If you’d like to ask me questions, feel free to leave some in the comments of my Questions entry. […]
I’ve been slacking majorly this week, blog updating-wise. I blame it on a busy week of work, and the fact that the copy of Rock Band that Scott won came in earlier this week. We love us some Rock Band! Anyway. Lisanne asked me a few questions, and I’m finally going to answer them.  […]
I spent the majority of this past weekend knitting one of the front panels of the Arisaig cardigan and watching Season 1 of Heroes, which I borrowed from a friend months ago. (Yes, Josh, I’m finally watching the series. Finally.) We didn’t do much this weekend, but we enjoyed ourselves and I felt pretty productive. […]
