100th Post! The Compact, Days 22-28

Posted on: Sunday, February 28th, 2010 in: The Compact

Wow, I’ve posted something here on this little ole bloggie 100 times. Most people do that in well under a year….it’s taken me 2 years. Oh well. We all travel at our own pace.
As far as The Compact goes, I assure I bought nothing new this week. I had another massage for my IT band [...]

Dear Sasha the Corgi Puppy,
While you have thoroughly convinced Ryan that you are the breed of choice, I’m on to you. I spend more time with you and know how TRULY crafty and stubborn you are. You can’t deceive me with your cuteness!

Hello, Compactors or People who like to read about Compacting!

Forgive me Compactors, for I have sinned (again). It has been some days since my last confession. *cough cough*
Okay, I bought some Chaco sandals. On Ebay. New in box for a screaming deal. I do need sandal-y footwear for my upcoming trip to Puerto Rico. I used to have a pair of Chacos, that I [...]

Anyway, things [...]
