December Travel Plans // Headed To Seattle!

2015 really has been a year for traveling for me, so I’m really stoked to be finishing it off with a bang. Ilhan and I are going to go to Seattle the first weekend of December! We picked this location because we’re going to see our most favorite band Odesza play in their home city… Read more »

3 Reasons Why Everyone Should Watch Law & Order: SVU
Law & Order: SVU

I have been madly in love with Law & Order: SVU since 2008, when my freshman self figured out how useful it is in procrastinating. Back in the day, I would watch a few episodes here and there, some marathons on the weekend maybe…but now I consider myself fully obsessed having watched all 16 seasons… Read more »

Life Update // New Specs!
Warby Parker

*this is NOT a sponsored post! I just love my new glasses!* Thanks to that super long blog break that I took, this is super overdue. But! I’m still something I’m super stoked about. I GOT NEW GLASSES GUYS, and it’s been the actual best new purchase I’ve made in forever. So I’ve been wearing… Read more »

The Last Picnic of Summer

Ilhan and I have been a tad too obsessed with eating out lately. I’m not sure if that’s a good or bad thing (great for discovering so many new places, terrible for our wallets ugh), but either way we decided to have one last summer picnic before the sun starts setting earlier and it’s too… Read more »

Hi, I’m Back! (with $15 to Starbucks!)

Long time no see, blogland! I seriously can’t believe it has been 2.5 months since I’ve been around these parts…it’s the longest hiatus I’ve taken since the birth of A Weekend Crossing but a break was much, much needed. I was so uninspired with blogging it was a chore to get myself to write anything,… Read more »

Goodbye to my oldest friend // 9/12/02 – 6/30/15

Last night, we said goodbye to our family dog Roxy. About two weeks ago, she rapidly and inexplicably lost the use of her legs. We were bringing her to acupuncture and chiropractor appointments plus started her on a bunch of new meds, but there wasn’t much change in condition. Last night, she had blood in… Read more »

Some life things.

I’ve been pretty horrible at blogging for the past few months. I’m not really sure why, but I guess it was a combination of being busy and being uninspired. No offense to anyone who lives in Orange County, I really can’t stand living here…it’s so sprawled out and suburban and not me at all. I… Read more »

Seven years ago today.

On March 13, 2008, Ilhan and I became “official.” We were both just teenagers (I was barely 18), not really sure where the relationship was going to go considering that I was going off to college in a few months. All we were certain of was that we wanted to be with each other at… Read more »

Turning 25 // the perfect way to celebrate

I had my 25th birthday a couple weeks ago on February 16. 25 is a big one, you know? It marks the completion of your first quarter century of life and brings you into the second one. I wanted to do something super special for this day and spent weeks trying to think of cool… Read more »

Sisterhood of the World tag + AWC’s new look!

Hi. It has literally been so since I’ve blogged but I’m not really sorry. I’ve been really swamped over at Paleohacks and I’ve been trying to take better care of myself by exercising, getting enough sleep, reading etc. This little blog has been on the back burner as a result. Also I’ve just been on the lazy side with… Read more »
