George’s birthday is coming up! Every year, I start planning right about now…which is a whole month before the big day. Since his birthday falls on a Tuesday this year, we’ll be celebrating the weekend before. You must be wondering why I’m writing about his birthday plans on a blog we share? Well, neither one of us can ever keep a secret from eachother, not to mention surprises, so we’ve given up.

Anyway, evite will be following shortly. If you don’t get one, it’s because:

1. You live far away and won’t be able to come anyway.

2. You’re a random lurker and I don’t know you.

3. I just don’t like you. (hahahaa…ahem.)

By the way, it’s JULY 31.

Don’t worry, I’ll pretend you already knew that. 🙂


Before I figure out a way to post the pictures on here, I’ve uploaded them to ofoto.

If you want to see them, shoot me an email or comment on this page and I’ll send them to you.




We’re a bit late to jump on the bandwagon…but we recently finished watching Grey’s Anatomy Season 1 on DVD and actually kind of enjoyed it! I’ve always been a sucker for soap operas (both american and chinese ones) so I expected to like it. But I was pleasantly surprised to see that Jorge enjoyed watching the show as much as I did. At least now I don’t have to sit there and suffer through hours and hours of The Knife Show on tv before we go to bed at night.

Anyway, back to Grey’s. (Now that we’ve been inducted into the Grey’s Anatomy world, I don’t have to feel like such a poser when I refer to it as just Grey’s and refer to hotties as McDreamy and McSteamy. heh.) Did you know that season 2 of Grey’s is 5 discs of episodes?!?! That means, for us to rent it, it’ll cost $20!!!! At this rate, we might as well buy the damn set. What a ripoff.

Does anyone out there have a copy of season 2 we can borrow??? 🙂


Real quick.


See ya!


Hello. It’s Joyce. You’ll be hearing from me mostly since my better half isn’t really much for words and he defers to me on everything anyway. Ha.

First off..I want to apologize. I really tried to register the domain name http://www.geoyce.com, but was too late. Apparently, someone else out there wanted the same domain name and jumped on it before I did as soon as our eweddings website expired. So, for those of you who bookmarked our site, our new URL is: http://www.geoyce.wordpress.com. Doesn’t quite have that same ring to it, but ah well, you snooze you lose.

Second, I have been a real slacker about posting up the rest of our honeymoon pictures. So I’ll be sure to do that as soon as I get home. Rather than upload them one by one, I’ll just provide the link to our ofoto site so you can peruse them at your leisure. I think there’s a slideshow feature on this blog, so I’ll have to play around with it and see if there’s an even easier way for you guys to see the pictures.


Can you believe it’s already been more than THREE MONTHS since our wedding day?????? I certainly can’t. One minute, we were off on our honeymoon, then ‘POOF!’ It’s three months later and I’m sitting here wondering where all the time went.

Here’s a recap of what we’ve been up to since our wedding:

I switched jobs. Yup. I no longer work at USC. Me, Ms. Trojan-for-life, found life outside the walls of USC. This new opportunity couldn’t have come at a better time. It really was time for me to move on. Being on campus was great, but it never really felt like I graduated from college. Plus, the commute to SC from home was really starting to kill me slowly. Shortly after we returned from the honeymoon, I was offered an editor job at Kaiser Permanente. The office is located right in Old Town Pasadena!! My commute went from 1+ hour one way to 15 minutes door-to-door. Plus, I get to carpool with my sister occasionally and have lunch with her almost everyday, since her law firm is right around the corner from my office building. So far, it’s been a little over a month since I started here, and I can honestly say for the first time EVER, that I’m happy with my job.

Our new life as a married couple is great. It really is. We’ve really started to get into the groove of things and have finally settled into our new life together. Sometimes, I’ll look at him and wonder to myself if all of this is real. Are we REALLY married?? Do we REALLY live together now?? Do we really introduce eachother to other people as my husband/wife?? Yes.

I had a birthday. I’m officially ‘not young’ anymore. But shockingly, I’m ok with that. Now that my 20s have been over for a couple of years, I can look back and honestly say that I didn’t really enjoy it to its fullest. There was so much more I could have done, but didn’t. I’m looking forward to my 30s now. And I have a strong feeling that this is going to be my best decade ever.

I think that’s about it.

For you-our friends, family, random lurkers-this probably isn’t going to be updated daily. But I will try my best to keep it up-to-date of our happenings. So check back often. You never know, you may find yourself on one of our posts. Heh.
