Previously On…


Let’s pretend this blog {my life} is a television show coming back from a mid-season hiatus.

Yes, that’s way more fun than saying I got caught up in work and life and a physically and mentally taxing winter.

Ahem. {Cue Voiceover}

Previously on Jessi Makes Things:  Jessi showed you a ‘typical’ day in her life, her nephew’s third birthday party, and some cute and easy baby shower gifts.


Here’s what you missed since my last, err, episode aired.

Friends, hikes, work, birthdays.

Specifically, I went ice skating for the first time for my friend Maura’s birthday. It was as terrifying as you would expect for someone as clumsy as myself. I also hung out with Bill Clinton that night. No big deal, we’re old pals. Jacob turned 28 and we celebrated with an arcade party complete with a Star Wars cake and many rounds of tabletop Frogger. We are refinishing our dining room set and it has turned into the neverending project (don’t they all?).


Last week, our friend Ricky turned 30 and his fiancee Haley threw him a surprise dinner at one of our favorite breweries in town. I volunteered to do the decorations because, you know, party decor is my heroine.


I designed some growler labels with Ricky’s mug on ’em and my sister bought some matching balloons to tie to the handles. Easy peasy lemon squeezy.


Bonus: They fill any growlers at Apple Blossom, so Ricky got to take home a growler full of birthday beer

The gang minus Josh and Alex. Happy Birthday, Rick!


I suppose a lot more has happened in the -gulp- month and a half since I last posted, but you know sitcoms (god, I hope my life is a sitcom and not a drama- or a murder mystery!?) these days have such short run times, so I better go.

Next week on Jessi Makes Things: I have an essay on travel and a bunch of deep existential thoughts that I have started and erased about six times already, so hopefully I’ll suck it up and post that soon.

Last but certainly not least, my dear, incredibly strong friend Alex is undergoing radiation today for her thyroid cancer so hop over to her blog and leave an encouraging comment or think good thoughts, will you?

    I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your blog. Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility problems? A handful of my blog visitors have complained about my blog not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari. Do you have any ideas to help fix this problem?
