Did You Know...

...I haven't uploaded pictures from my iPhone in for-ever. And considering that is the only camera I ever use, I've got a ton of pictures to dump on you today. Along with some pretty interesting "did you knows" about yours truly.

Did you know...
That I strapped our Christmas tree on top of the car, almost completely by myself. 

With Robbie's back issues, there was no way I was going to allow him to lug that thing on top of his car by himself, much to his dismay. So I found some work gloves and did it myself, with Robbie's very strict instruction. The good news is, it didn't fall off. The bad news came a little too close. Fortunately I've got a whole year to perfect my skills.

Did you know...
That we sent our tree up in flames after New Years. 

And I had a slight pang of anxiety worrying that I had forgotten to get all the ornaments off. Because you know, the 20 min car ride with the tree strapped on top of the roof wouldn't have demolished any forgotten ornaments. 

Did you know...
That these two little lovebirds celebrated their 5th wedding anniversary a few weeks ago.

My mom and step-dad got married when I was a sophomore in college and even though it feels like Big Wave has been a part of our family forever, it is still hard to believe that 5 years has passed. I've said it before - divorce is hard but seeing my mom so happy makes it a lot easier. Plus my step-dad, step-brother, and step-sister are pretty much the best there is. So there's that. 

Did you know...
That I redecorated this table yet again.

If you follow me on Instagram (@mariannadunn), you did already know this. You also already know that I redecorate it at least once every month. I just can't stop changing my mind about that little space. 

Did you know...
That I've secretly always wanted to be a school mascot.

I've always thought the mascots at college football/basketball games are so cool. #nerdalert. But it's always just looked like so much fun. My dream came true the other night when my school was spotlighted at the Board of Education. Obviously, I had to dress up as our school mascot. And obviously, it was wonderful. 

Fingers crossed for a more relevant blog post tomorrow!

Happy Monday!

  1. These photos are definitely worthy to be posted in here. It’s good to see that you had a great time last year, especially with your mom. It’s not easy to go through a divorce, and I’m glad that your mom coped up with it and moved on. I hope things will get better for all of you this year.
