Last Monday while in London, Alex, Anna, Caity and I hopped on the Overground and headed for the Warner Brothers Studios in Watford, to tour the Harry Potter studios!!! I’ll throw it out there right now, if you are ever in London and are even in the slightest a Harry Potter fan, you must make […]
When the Spaniards meet the Londoner
The Spanish are coming! The Spanish are coming! Yeah, I know, that’s meant to be “British” and directed at me but I couldn’t help it! In this case, the Spanish are indeed coming, and invading my London life! Thursday night I met up with one of my best friends from back home, Caity, who is […]
Hooray for Red Nose Day!
It’s finally Red Nose Day here, and I am so excited to share with you all back home what this ridiculous British day is all about! Red Nose Day is a fundraiser put on by a major charity in the UK called Comic Relief. The charity has been around since Christmas day in 1985 where […]
Marilyn Monroe: Intimate Exposure
Oh my goodness, where do I even begin?! I guess first I will start off by sidetracking from my title, and take this time to brag a little about how proud I am of myself for now being able to ride the tube alone without getting lost, understand the map, and switch train lines!!! I few quick […]
Pampered Pooches on Parade
Fancy meeting you here, reader! This weekend I went back to Coventry for Niki’s (my British sister) birthday, UK mother’s day, and Crufts, the world’s largest dog show! I never would have thought I would end up attending a dog show in my life, but that’s where I found myself with Linda and Niki on […]

Cotswold Farm Animal Frenzy!
Howdy from the farm, y’all! Since it is currently half term (a week long school break in the UK) we watched Linda’s goddaughter, Emilia, for the day while her mom was at work. And what better to do with a four year old then go to a farm! So mixing my tourism with the entertainment […]
Proper Castles, Pubs, Priests and Pancakes
Happy (early) Valentine’s Day! Before we get into my latest adventures, allow me to introduce you to my latest obsession in the music world, who, of course, is a Brit! (if you know anything about me, it’s that all of my favorite artists are from the UK). Meet Lewis Watson: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S-tcyHTH6LM Listen and love ❤ I […]
Where Art Thou, Shakespeare?
Hello again! Since we last spoke (aka I wrote, you read), I have seen Les Miserable in another country (way cooler then at home, beat that Stacey!), and helped out in Linda’s year one (kindergarten) class where I was asked “what language do you talk?”, was told “you’ve got an American voice!” and been on the receiving end […]
Good morning America! It’s 5pm here and 9am there, but no matter! I’m becoming more accustomed with the time difference, although it is a bit frustrating that no one is awake to respond to Viber messages until the evening here *cough cough Sam*. I woke up to the sad score of the Superbowl this morning, sorry […]
