Marge Gunderson (Fargo) - Halloween 2018

This was the easiest Halloween costume I've ever come up with. Honestly, I feel guilty even calling it cosplay since all I did was buy the sheriff shirt at *gasp* Party City. Everything else, down to the Disneyland 'sheriff' pin with my name and Mickey Mouse on it, I already owned. (Though I admit, I saved that hat from a donation pile knowing I'd want to cosplay Marge if I ever was pregnant during Halloween.) I knew I didn't want to dress up as an inanimate object, using my belly bump as a mere prop. I wanted to be a pregnant character and Marge is easily my favorite. She's just so great and her and her and husband Norm are one of my favorite movie couples of all time. 

Halloween night was a kickball night, so the jacket was perfect for an evening on the field. (I don't play, I just watch and socialize.) Jim wore his classic Team Zessu costume and I had hot cocoa in my coffee cup prop. It wasn't cold enough for the mittens, and honestly, the hat was pretty annoying. Overall it was a great Halloween, and I can't wait till next year when I'll have a little baby to dress up!

Life Update, I'm Pregnant!

Back in July, we shared this photo with friends and family with the caption: "We helped out the annual GCReW Biomass census today. Lots of uh...things growing out here." Now, at the start of September, we're letting our news be public. We're gonna have a baby!! Word's can not express how excited and scared we are, but I try in a YouTube video...beacuse of course. I'm just so overwhelmed with love and excitement and I'm just amazed at how far Jim and I have come. We're gonna be parents!! I hope our news brings you a little joy today, and I hope you'll stay tuned for more!

Happy 32nd Jim!

Happy Birthday Jim!! You're 32 today, in case you forgot. I love you so much and I'm so glad that we are making a little life for ourselves here in Maryland. I know it's been tough. (I even skipped birthday posts for you and me last year...31 wasn't that exciting I guess.) I'm back to it though, 'cause even if I may not really be a 'blogger' anymore, I still love sharing little bits about our lives with friends and family; and gushing on and on about how amazing you are and how much I love you. I hope your 32nd year will be filled with all sorts of new and amazing things. I can't wait to see what the future holds for us. Hugs and kisses, Jenny

3 Year Anniversary

Last month was our three-year wedding anniversary and since I haven't been blogging I never posted these photos anywhere. (But seeing as tomorrow is Jim's birthday and of course I'm going to gush about him in a post, consistent blogging or not, I figured I should probably make this post now.) We didn't take too many shots this time as the "tree spot" we picked this year was our own backyard. Our backyard is pretty mosquito-ridden this time of year. Next year I think we'll walk the few blocks it takes to get to a nice park since there's so many of them in our neighborhood. I love going through these photos and noticing all the little changes. I hope we can take these photos, the week of our anniversary, surrounded by trees and nature, for the rest of our lives. 


BroadwayCon 2018 - Day 3 - Jellicle Cats

IMG_0050 (If you repost my photos please credit me and link this blog, thank you!) 
Day three of BroadwayCon 2018 will forever go down in history as the Jellicle day. (At least for me and my friends.) It was the day us Cats cosplayers decided to do a meetup which turned into the BroadwayCon social media team filming a pretty long Hyperlapse of us 'catting about' for their Instagram. I honestly don't remember much of what else I did that day, so enjoy this photo dump from Sunday, January 28th, 2018.

This was a cool moment. This is us with the Broadway Experience director, Ben Hartley and assistant director, Mami Tomotani. Ben was in the original West End production of Cats and Mami was in the original Japan production. IMG_1942 IMG_1950 IMG_1953 IMG_1954 IMG_1977 IMG_1979_1 IMG_1984_1

BroadwayCon was, yet again, an amazing experience. It's the con I dreamed of when I was a teen and I still am stunned it's actually real. Thank you to Anthony Rapp and everyone else who made it possible. IMG_2001

Till next time. (Whenever that is, it might not be for a while...) IMG_2004
