A Business and a Bounce House

By Alicia Courtney

Bounce House, the best part of the Fun Fair

I have been so busy with the new company that I haven’t had much time to blog.  I’ve had a couple people say, “Wow, you can make your own hours, work from home, do what you want….must be nice.”  And while I wouldn’t change our new situation at all, it isn’t all peaches and cream […]

My 24th Year, A recap

By Alicia Courtney

Dad and I after Chris proposed.

Background:  For my entire life I have looked forward to being 24.  Sounds funny, I know.  When I was little I thought that magical number made me an adult.  I pictured myself with a college degree, a husband and expecting my first baby.  (Yes, I was obsessed with having a child even when I was […]

First, I would just like to say how tragic everything that is happening in Japan is.  We are safe and luckily the damage was minimal in Hawai`i compared to the devastation in Japan.  To our friends and family that are there, we are still thinking of you and our home is open if you need […]

Magic & Wonder

By Alicia Courtney

Ehhhhh.   Outside of work, I’m not much of a talker, so I think this whole blogging thing is for the birds.  And by birds, I mean Alicia.   Seems like my best move here is to stick to what I do best which PBS tells me is images, music, sarcasm and the wonder and […]

I am Totally My Father's Daughter and I almost Killed Us

By Alicia Courtney

Other people were looking at me with horror on their faces.  We just laughed and took pictures.

I am very much like my father.  In some ways, it is scary.  Of all the many stories and similar attributes we share, today I really did pull a Wayne Gillespie. Our day started off really great.  Great church service, delicious pizza for lunch, a beautiful drive out to see the Spitting Cave and then […]

Be My Valentine

By Alicia Courtney

The best kind of flowers are the surprise ones he picks up at the Farmer's Market on a random Thursday night while I am running after work.  And yes those are helicopter and diamond ring Silly Bands (thanks Peggy!)

Amidst all the work behind our Save the Date we also had our last Valentine’s Day together before we get married.  I am so excited to buy those cheesy cards with the script writing and foil embellishments that say HUSBAND.  It reminds me of my own parents who have been such an influence on me […]

This is no surprise to anyone.  I’ve had baby fever since I was…well for a long time.  I warned Chris when he first met me that I will wave to babies in restaurants and I talk about them all the time.  I didn’t want to scare him off from the beginning because he thought I wanted […]

5 hours at the Salon

By Alicia Courtney

Exhibit 2: Annalise and I both went brunette for our study abroad in Germany.  As two blondes at heart we quickly dyed it back blonde once we came back stateside.

On Sunday I made the venture to a new salon.  For all the women out there you know what a big deal this is.  New city, need a new stylist.  I’d like to mention that I consider our stylist from Indy, Greg Livingston, a close friend of ours (West 86th Hair Designs, Indy people call […]
