More Popular Than 2014 Rocking My Socks Off

January has been pretty amazing, and I’m not afraid to say that because I don’t believe in jinxes. Also, the month ended.

My son ran a race and did well; so well that we didn’t believe it was our son when E rounded the corner a block away from the finish line.

Someone else took this photo because I was too busy screaming OMG THAT’S HIM.

It snowed more than once in Richmond!

Snow in the dark
We first went out in the cold, dark morning because we didn’t realize it would snow again.
And again
N in snow
and again
and enough for SLEDDING!

And frolicking!

My sister’s bridesmaids and I (maid of honor, yo!) threw her a fabulous bridal shower in Columbia, South Carolina. (Go Tigers! — That’s for you, B.)

I need to work on my camera angles, or I need an exorcism.

I saw the Vince Lombardo Super Bowl trophy while hanging out at NFL headquarters and got the greatest selfie ever.

Do you see me reflecting back? SWEET FOOTBALL JESUS.

My daughter will not stop breaking out her hilarious adorableness right and left.

Why hello Princess Mustache. I mustache you a question.

Scott and I saw the Pixies in concert. Again.

Concert on a Wednesday night? Don’t mind if I do (until Thursday morning).

Where is my mind?

And that’s the only parts where I remembered to take pictures. Way to start 2014!

When I’m not appreciating my life, I’m becoming more popular by reading and writing elsewhere.

My Other Hangouts (don’t tell my blog):

  • 20 Signs Your Children Are Gifted: On Richmondmom, I help us all realize how very genius our kids are. I mean if they’ve ever done anything better than you did as a kid, they MUST be gifted!
  • I Almost Stopped Writing: On ScoutieGirl, I  list the 7 ways I kept writing even when I didn’t want to tell stories anymore — eg. I slept more.

Favorite posts I didn’t read, I mean, write:

Alex Iwashyna

Alex Iwashyna went from a B.A. in philosophy to an M.D. to a SAHM, poet and writer by 30. She spends most of her writing time on, a humor blog (except when it's serious) about her husband fighting zombies, awkward attempts at friendship, and dancing like everyone is watching. She also has a soft spot for culture, politics, and rude Southern people who offend her Yankee sensibilities. She parents 2 elementary-aged children, 1 foster baby, 3 cats, and 1 puppy, who are all Southern but not rude. Yet.
