What, like it’s hard?

One of the hardest things about moving abroad is leaving your girls! And not to gloat, but I have kickass girfriends. Meeting good girlfriends after the age of 25, in my opinion, is not easy. Add in the “I’m not from around here” sign tattooed on my forehead and it makes it even trickier. So… Read More What, like it’s hard?

I’m gonna make him an offer he can’t refuse

Early this Spring I became a godmother to the most adorable godson ever! As you can see below he was just as thrilled as I was 🙂 Now I know when you think of someone providing religious wisdom and guidance, you definitely think of me. But, don’t worry, I will mainly be providing my godson… Read More I’m gonna make him an offer he can’t refuse

Thankful

Let’s discuss my favorite holiday, Thanksgiving. This year I spent the day like usual. Went to work, donned my sombrero, sipped margaritas then spent the night at a karaoke bar. Ok, so Scotland may have confused Thanksgiving with Cinco de Mayo. But considering this was the first time I ever worked a Thanksgiving in my… Read More Thankful

Sports

Back home sports mainly consist of baseball, basketball, hockey, and FOOTBALL. Yes, I capitalized that to emphasize the importance. Over here, soccer is king along with rugby and golf. Then there is a whole slew of sports like cricket, still unsure of it’s purpose and the distinction between Pinocchio’s little friend and it’s weird similarities to… Read More Sports

Pub Race

I am writing this a little hungover, hey just being honest, because I spent last night pub racing around St. A. Yes, in Scotland you apparently Pub Race, not Pub Crawl. Basically, you see how many places you can go to in one night and how fast you can drink while there. They love to do… Read More Pub Race

The Open Part II

Trust me I never thought I would write a two part blog post on The Open. But, I have left the most exciting part for this post. During my 12 hour days of smiling (because smiling is my favorite), something magical happened. On Thursday, a man with sunglasses, a hat and a hoodie walked in with… Read More The Open Part II
