A few weeks ago I continued my new favorite habit of weekend travel and hit the road–er, sky–to the great city of Seattle, Washington. It just so happened to be the same weekend that the SF 49ers played (and lost to) the Seattle Seahawks in the championship game, so the city was bustling with fans of sportsball and stuff. I learned what the 12th Man is, and I also made this video to commemorate a lovely weekend with lovely friends. Enjoy!
This sweatshirt has been living at the hubs’ office for a while. He bought it on Ebay thinking it was a vintage find, though it’s not. (I can’t tell the difference.) Plus, it doesn’t fit him and his beefy self. I don’t mind carrying around a little Carolina spirit in soft-sweatshirt form. (It’s seriously, seriously soft.) The closest I get to being a football fan is my current obsession with watching every episode of Friday Night Lights on Netflix.

Three Bethys in jumpsuits! Yeah, I went there. If you look closely, you’ll see that it’s what I wore to the Justin Timberlake concert with my pal Steph. This time, I was brave enough not only to wear it to church, but to wear it on a day I was singing in front of the congregation. (I do that sometimes.)
I think it looks best when I keep my hands in my pockets, amiright? Read the rest of this entry »
A few weeks ago I hopped on a bike and soon found myself pedaling across the Golden Gate Bridge, up in the Marin Headlands and down into Sausalito. 20 miles total. And it was glorious.
I feel like I’ve been rediscovering some of my outdoor loves this summer. Between canoeing, camping and bike riding, I’ve been happily basking in sunshine and stretching my legs, smelling of campfire and waking to the birds chirping. Read the rest of this entry »
The older I get, the more I search for clothes that can pass as sleepwear. (See exhibits A and B.) I find nothing wrong with this. In fact, I think it’s a stroke of genius on my part. I mean, sure, I still love a good skinny jean or body-hugging dress from time to time. But on the daily, pants that are basically pajama bottoms are where it’s at. Read the rest of this entry »
This one called for the line “underground is where I live.” I won’t get too philosophical on ya, but my pastor’s sermon yesterday actually inspired this little tune.
Well, hello, there! This summer has been full of weekend adventures and escapades and I LOVE IT. (Even better, it’s not stopping any time soon.) First there was a delightful day trip with the girls, then the hubs and I took a tour of the farm where they make the tastiest sheep cheese, next Mom came to visit SF, I enjoyed a day on the Russian River with a girlfriend, and finally I hopped a plane to Chicago to see my college roommate. Oh, and we took the opportunity to check out the Justin Timberlake & Jay Z concert, too. A-MAH-zing. Read the rest of this entry »
Last Saturday my friend Sarah and I joined a group from Unfolding Adventures for Women on a canoeing trip down the Russian River.
The point of the trip–and Unfolding Adventures–is to get out and enjoy God’s creation while taking time to stop and reflect. That’s what this canoeing trip was all about, aside from the rowing (and rowing and rowing). Toward the end of our trip the waters became calm and we all stopped rowing and just floated.
