maybe it will increase my productivity by 1,000 percent

After much hemming and hawing and researching and going back and forth, I finally ordered a new laptop. For the last year or so, Our Dell laptop (which is only 2 1/2 years old) has been a nightmare. It’s been overheating, causing the processor to overload- not to mention burning up my legs while I’m… KEEP READING »


Maggie, 3 months

Maggie, 3 months

Dear Monster, I hope you don’t mind that we call you that. You’ll soon learn that in our house, name calling is a way of showing love and affection. And little girl, we surely do love you. Bunches. Yesterday you turned 3 months old. It is true what all those books and articles said, that… KEEP READING »

This makes human breastfeeding look like a piece of cake. I only made it 7 weeks with one baby- imagine all of those latching on every 2 hours! hehe

Hoo-ray for babies who sleep until 5 am. HOO-RAY, I say.

So if there was an award for The Crappiest Blogger Ever, I think I’d win. My posts are so few and far between, and when I do post, I talk about how I never post, and proceed to talk about all the stuff that’s going on that is keeping me from posting. Instead of that,… KEEP READING »

playing catch up

Whew! I’m finally able to take a breather. I have barely been able to have a coherent thought lately, let alone write about one. And I do have things to write about! I’ve found myself composing blog posts in my sleep or in the shower or while I’m feeding Maggie. It’s just finding the time… KEEP READING »

monumental day

monumental day

I woke up, but my eyes were still closed. I could see the early morning light filtering in from the window. It was quiet. WAIT A MINUTE. It was QUIET?!?!?!? I opened my eyes. The clock read 5:52am. And Maggie was just starting to stir on the baby monitor. We all went to bed at… KEEP READING »


five years

five years

Five years ago today, I got married. After our short and relatively cheap honeymoon to the Outer Banks of North Carolina, we moved into our first home together- a small, 2 bedroom apartment. We quickly settled into a blissful, married life. Since then… it’s been a whirlwind of STUFF. We bought a house. Dan got… KEEP READING »

It seems I have 2 themes of posts lately: my daughter or my husband. heh. This coming Friday is our 5th wedding anniversary. Our first night out alone without the baby (I’m not counting the friend’s wedding we went to a few weeks ago, because Dan was in that one so I barely saw him… KEEP READING »


he’s such a jokester

he’s such a jokester

You may remember the story about the beans in the burrito, back when I was just 1 week postpartum. It was quite the drama thanks to my raging hormones, and afterwards, a story we found quite funny from a time when our lives had changed so much and everything seemed so, so serious. So on… KEEP READING »


8 week doctors appointment

8 week doctors appointment

woo, two posts in one day! How did you all get so lucky? I forgot until Melissa asked that I never blogged about Maggie’s 2 month checkup at the doctor. DUH! It was quite a day, with all of the screaming and fussiness from the shots. And there was lots of that, let me tell… KEEP READING »


WARNING: boob talk ahead

WARNING: boob talk ahead

Last night I spent 2 hours trying on clothes at Kohl’s. It has to be the most frustrating 2 hours OF MY LIFE. It’s not just that I have a few extra pounds to lose from having a baby. I’m fine with that, I’ve accepted it, that’s just how it is. And heck, it’s only… KEEP READING »
