Parental Plea

There's been something that's been weighing on my mind most of this year to be quite honest. Mike and I both have had the joys of telling our parents that we were getting married. But not all of our parents were as excited as we were. Being gay men has proved to have it's challenges for the both of us and some of the issues were brought up in the past, and buried as soon as they were shown.

Thanksgiving Fun and then sick as a dog!

Happy Thanksgiving!!! I hope that everyone had as great of a Thanksgiving as Michael and I did! Being surrounded by people you love is my number one requirement for holidays. It doesn't have to be family, it can be friends...as long as you are surrounded by those you love and that love you back.

Oh I love a rainy night....woh...woh!

It's been raining like a cow pissin' on a flat rock the past day or so! And THAT is about the best description I could think of! The wind and the rain really hit us hard last night, and I could just hear it pouring a good portion of the late night/early morning.

Mexican version of Cinderella...Mexirella!

Today I've been up since around 6:30 AM when Mike left for work, and have been trying to clean our house. I feel like the Mexican version of Cinderella. "Vacuum the floors, Mexirelly...bathe the dogs, Mexirelly...dust the house, Mexirelly...Make good food, Mexirelly!" I've been waiting all morning for the little mice to come out and help me clean and we sing fun songs and I twirl while dreaming of my prince to come and take me away!

Housewife Highlights

I’m currently sitting on the plane somewhere between Philly and Seattle, and not in the best frame of mind. I wasn’t too excited to leave Paris 10 or so hours ago, and I sure wasn’t excited to get on this Airbus 312 in Philly.

Pressure in Paris!

Today was our final full day in Paris, and I have to say that I am NOT excited to leave this amazing city. We had big plans for today, lots to see and do before we left this romantic city. All through this trip we’ve had wonderful weather and have agreed that we’ve chosen wisely what to do each day. Today proved to be a good day for the events we chose. It was overcast and a tad windy with a nice fall chill in the air.

Another day in the jet setting life of The REAL Housewife of Snohomish County!

Oh Versailles! Tres magnifique! Oh my goodness. Today was full of so much! Even though we didn’t walk as much as we did yesterday, it was still a VERY full day!

Walk like a Parisian...

Okay, let me start out by saying that my mood definitely improved! I woke up this morning ready to conquer the world. Well let's rewind a bit...it was the LONGEST night ever! My body still isn't adjusted to the time, so I woke up so many times last night making it a LONG night.

Perturbed in Paris

What a ride today has been. We woke up this morning around 8 AM, showered and made our way down Piccadilly to a place for breakfast. We had a good breakfast and it didn’t cost us 80 bucks! After that we made our way down to Piccadilly Circus and bought some souvenirs.

Breaking News! REAL Housewife of Snohomish County walks until he drops!

Today was a day that was filled with tons of walking and sight seeing! We woke up at around 8:30 (or I did LOL) and showered and got ready to head out for the day. I had Eggs Benedict for the first time EVER, since I'm not a fan of runny yolks.

Housewife Takes London by STORM!

Okay...that might be a bit of a lie! But we landed this morning in London at around 9 AM local time. We breezed through customs and headed for the Express Train to downtown London.

The Final Countdown!

Cue the music! :) AH HA HA

Today has been an amazingly busy day! I have about 90 million things to do, and only two days to do them! I've been so concerned about getting the dogs ready for their stay at The Dog Spot, the house ready for us to leave, and our house sitters to stay, and all the other little things that go along with vacation!

Almost time to jet!

I'm so ready for vacation! And in just a few days I'll be flying over the Atlantic on my way to London for a few nights then chunneling across to Paris! This is my first trip to Europe and I can't wait! We bought another battery for my camera and I'm ready to go!
