He’s A Keeper

Nothing brings out the humor in life like big events: funerals, weddings….BABIES.

Well friends, pregnancy has brought out some great lines from my sweet Baby Daddy.

Here’s a sampling for your enjoyment.


Somanna: So people at work are really excited for us.

Me: Aww that’s sweet.

Somanna: Yea….especially when I tell them it’s your first.

Two weeks after learning about the proverbial bun in the oven, we’re out and about running errands in town….

Somanna: Hey! You wanna grab a drink somewhere?!

Also in the early weeks of shock pregnancy….while discussing a myriad plans for 2014…
Me: Well, it’ll depend. We ‘ll just have to see how it goes. You’ll need to save some PTO (paid time off) for May.
Somanna:  What do I need to save my PTO for?

Somanna, very emphatically: You are carrying my CHILD!


Yea, I’m glad it’s you. I mean, that’s cool.


Me:  What do you want the baby to call you? Daddy? Papa? Pop?

Somanna, deadpan in a deep Indian head bobble accent: Father.


Upon walking into Babies R ‘Us for the first time last weekend:

Somanna: Wow. Shit just got real, son!


Me: Perhaps we should take baby CPR. You know, so we don’t kill the baby.

Somanna: Nah, we can just Google it.

Day of Birth Let It Be Happy Yay!!


I’m not great at writing nice sentiments and such (ask my father in-law about my vows…) so I’ll celebrate this tribute by releasing some exclusive, never before, published photos of her!



Picture 216


(The last photo she hates because of her pose and I love because of the light. But it’s her birthday so hopefully she’s in too good of a mood to care!)

*update* she did care! I just need to end it on a better photo!

What a year it has been!

Last year this time, we were in a very different place.

Exactly one month and one day after The Great Layoff, we celebrated our two-year wedding anniversary low-key style in our house in Raleigh.

A beautiful, simple bunch of flowers (for her) and a simple tea kettle (for him – it was a very Manly tea kettle.) That, plus some super heartfelt cards and a tasty dinner at home was it.

I’ll be honest. It was a bit of a let down after the previous year’s trip to the Outer Banks.

This past year we survived a job loss, a job hunt, a laughably strapped budget, a move (back) to Asheville, a temporary long distance couple stint, followed by another job hunt (for me), prepping the house for sale, a second job change, a bigger move to Asheville, commuting between Raleigh and Asheville for 10 weekends straight, moving apartments ~twice~ in one month in Asheville and finally renting our house out in Raleigh.

All this, on top of normal life and some other miscellaneous drama.

So here we are another year wiser, in Asheville with new jobs cramped in a new apartment and figuring things out one step at a time.

All that to say, we’ve never been happier.

And never more in love.

I think we’re gonna make it.

Happy Anniversary to my Sweet, Sweet Somanna.

Rolling In The Deep

I hope this Valentine’s Day has found you snuggled up to someone close Dear Reader.

But just in case you’re a tish bitter over a recent break up, here’s a delicious music video to lip synch to in your bathroom mirror.

This song’s so good I almost asked Somanna to temporarily dump me so that I could indulge in slinging our dishes in an angry tantrum.


I said almost.



As if I would ever give up my purty dishes.


(or Somanna too…I kid! I kid! You know I lurrvvvs my man!)

Happy Valentine’s Day Yall.
