on the move

on the move

…well, not quite yet. But soon, people. Much sooner than we would like. This morning, Dan came in and asked me if I had gone in to check on Maggie in the middle of the night and switched her upside down. HUH? Nope, she didn’t peep all night. I went in, and sure enough she… KEEP READING »


we’ve been doing lotsa stuff

we’ve been doing lotsa stuff

After a busy week, we decided, hey! Let’s continue this fun into the weekend! But even though it was busy, it was actually quite fun. Saturday afternoon, I went out BY MYSELF and got my hair cut and highlighted (pictures to come once I actually fix it this week instead of just putting it in… KEEP READING »


oh hai. pleez halp me?

oh hai. pleez halp me?

Oy. Work is eating me alive. And apparently my brain because I felt the need to use LOLCats language in the title. This week has been a big blur so far, with 2 days of trying to work during Maggie’s (extremely short) naps, plus one day of driving a gazillion miles to two different meetings… KEEP READING »


tired. sore. happy.

tired. sore. happy.

I feel like I’ve been hit by a truck. One of those big ones, with lots of wheels and mudflaps with pictures of naked women on them. We went to see Toby Keith (and Miranda Lambert!) in concert last night with Dan’s parents, complete with a cowboy hat. SO MUCH FUN. My sister and my… KEEP READING »


I can’t believe my baby is eating from a SPOON

I can’t believe my baby is eating from a SPOON

Last night Maggie had her first taste of cereal! It actually went really well… though most of it did end up on her front, on her hands, and on her face. But I think she swallowed quite a bit, and as you can see, she was getting quite impatient with Dad’s casual attitude toward getting… KEEP READING »


let’s play tag!

let’s play tag!

I very rarely do these, but I’m lacking in decent blog fodder lately. A long-ago schoolmate Chris tagged me! I think I may have done this one in an email forward before, but I searched my archives and didn’t find it anywhere. Four jobs I’ve had: 1. Wendy’s! That’s where I met Dan. I started… KEEP READING »


why Maggie might never crawl

why Maggie might never crawl

Words cannot express how much Maggie despises tummy time. She has never liked it. When she was just a few weeks old, I would put her on her belly and she would immediately start screaming. As time went on, she screamed less but still wasn’t happy about the whole thing. Now that she’s a little… KEEP READING »


girl talk

girl talk

I have a question for all of you ladies out there. Has anyone ever tried the birth control Yaz? I’ve been on it for a month now, and I’m not sure I want to keep going. I know they say that side effects usually go away after a few months… but it is making me… KEEP READING »


week in review

week in review

This entry might not make a lot of sense… I’m tired and ramble-y so just go with it. ‘Kay? :) Monday: I had a touch of something icky, some sort of stomach bug I think. At first I thought it was a side effect of my new birth control pills making me extremely tired and… KEEP READING »


recipe: Texas BBQ Chicken Quesadillas

recipe: Texas BBQ Chicken Quesadillas

I found this recipe a year or two ago, and I never made it until just recently. It is super-yummy! I made it again the other night, and it was just as good as the first time. The thing I like about it is that it’s very flexible- I stick with the basics, but you… KEEP READING »


more on the bank thing

more on the bank thing

I was paying bills today in our online account center for our bank, and I started poking around in the options. Turns out, there is a feature that I can have an email or a text message sent if our account balance goes below a certain amount (I can specify the amount) It’s buried pretty… KEEP READING »


me vs the bank

me vs the bank

About a month ago, there was a story on the news about how the federal government was starting to investigate the practices of banks regarding overdraft fees. Pretty much everyone uses debit cards almost exclusively now (who carries cash anymore? It’s so 1997!) Banks are apparently trying to capitalize on this, by failing to notify… KEEP READING »


progress… sort of.

progress… sort of.

Back in May, at just 7 weeks post-partum, I embarked on a quest to lose the last 15 or so pounds I had on my body after being pregnant and giving birth. It would be no problem! Heck, back in 2003, I lost almost 25 pounds just by watching what I was eating- I barely… KEEP READING »


squeaky Maggie

squeaky Maggie

The other day, my mom babysat Maggie for me while I went to a meeting for work. My sister came over, too, and Maggie spent some time entertaining them with her stories and songs. Scotty of course had to ruin it at the end. Such an attention whore.
