Friday Wrapup!

Let's get to it!


Ok, so I have something very serious to talk with you all about. This has been coming up all week and multiple people have emailed and commented about this, so I think it's time that I quit burying my head in the sand and address it.

Do we change CB's name to CF?

I know, right? My life is hard.

I get where you're all coming from, since the B is now an F and, if I don't drive him to dive from our balcony before the wedding, will eventually become an H. But I'm so used to calling him CB that sometimes it happens in real life. And also, I hate change.

However you, the readers, are the ultimate deciders. So you tell me - CB or CF?


Wedding planning gives me pimples, I've decided. Or, I've been eating too much fudge. But I'm blaming wedding planning, though I haven't so much been actually planning, as I have been wedding pinning, because essentially all I've done thus far is pin a bunch of stuff to Pinterest of what I like. I mean, it's been a week and a half, give me a minute.

But I decided to make an appointment to try on wedding dresses in August, so stay tuned for an inevitable story about how I ended up crying publicly when nothing fit and "I'll just wear a potato sack and call it a day!" comes out of my mouth.

Good times!


Um, perhaps my family is taking a break from reading this summer? Or we're all just to busy/lazy/forgetful to blog about it. Either way, though, check out the book blog here for some summer reading inspiration. Or, just come on over to our apartment and check out the variety I have to offer.

CB: "When I was looking for a book to bring to the sleep study, I couldn't decide between the Tori Spelling book, the Betty White book, or Little Women."
Me: "I know, right? They're all such classics!"

He loves living with me.


And now, the Video of the Week. This, my friends, is in honor of CB/F/H. After a glorious week in Michigan and a stressful week of moving and unpacking, this song couldn't ring more true.

I think I'll keep him.


  1. I like CB, it just has such a good ring to it. And I honestly didn't know what it stood for until recently, so I thought his name was like Christof Bergdorf or something embarrassing and that's why you shortened it. Or, he was like my husband and didn't want anyone he knew to actually associate all my shenanigans with him :)

  2. Maybe you could transition slowly...Like C(B)F for a while and then drop the B. Too complicated?? Also, how in the heck did you wait until you got engaged to pin wedding stuff on PInterest?? All the students I work with have already Pinterest-planned their weddings and they aren't even dating anyone!!!

  3. I like CB's sort of his name now and it's kind of lost the connotation of "boyfriend". At least in my mind. Now if you had started off like I did by just calling him by his name haha then you wouldn't be in a predicament!! I vote CB.

  4. I'm currently reading "Born Standing Up" its an autobiography of Steve Martin.

  5. You totally should change CB to CF, then to CH after your nuptials. We will all know who you mean, and any deviation from accuracy will merely distress those of us with OCD. Congratulations, by the way - what a beautiful proposal!

    Oh, and Becky? There is NO SUCH THING as too much fudge.
