that’s it, folks.

that’s it, folks.

Aaaaaand… it’s over. I have to say, it was much harder for me this year than it was last year. Probably something to do with the 8-month old who is currently using her daddy as a jungle gym. This kid? HAS A LOT OF ENERGY. I suppose I should have some super-fantastic awesome post for… KEEP READING »


my Thursday in review

my Thursday in review

Today was a comedy of… well, I was going to say errors, but it wasn’t really errors. More just funny or strange or weird events. Maggie woke up at the butt-crack of dawn, otherwise known as 6:30. For most people with babies, I suppose that’s not all that early, but for her, it is. Some… KEEP READING »


the ring

the ring

Nichole asked the other day whatever happened with my wedding ring. Well, a couple of weekends ago I finally had a chance to tackle trying to get it out from under the vanity. I cut a hole in the bottom of the cabinet, underneath one of the drawers so it would be hidden after the… KEEP READING »


videos and snot and teeth

videos and snot and teeth

Last night during the incredibly, painfully boring Steeler game (and embarrassing- did you SEE how horrible the field was??) I decided my time would be better spent multitasking. So I got caught up on uploading videos to my Vimeo account. There are three new ones. This one is from back in October- Maggie dancing with… KEEP READING »


can someone hand me a tissue?

can someone hand me a tissue?

So 2 hours of sleep last night WAS AWESOME. (It’s a shame that sarcasm doesn’t come through blog posts a little easier. In case you didn’t catch it, I was being sarcastic.) I’ve got The Sick. Snot and sore throat and Can’t Breathe Through My Nose Sick. Which I hate more than anything, not being… KEEP READING »


weekend of the sick

weekend of the sick

It all started on Friday night. We stayed up until after midnight (I know, we are crazy rebels!) watching a movie while Maggie slept. As I was crawling into bed, she woke up crying. We could hear that she was congested and having trouble breathing through her nose, plus she kept biting down on anything… KEEP READING »


rewind

rewind

Four days before Maggie was born, we got new cell phones, and I finally entered the 21st century and owned a camera phone (I know, I’m behind.) I haven’t used it all that much, so I never bothered to download the few pictures I did take, until yesterday. There are some from Maggie’s first days… KEEP READING »


day in the life

day in the life

Quite a busy day today! I had a meeting with a client at 10am, so I unfortunately had to enter the world of Black Friday. However, it wasn’t nearly as bad as I thought. After my meeting was over, I went to WalMart and Costco for a few things (not Christmas presents, just boring stuff… KEEP READING »


thankful

thankful

Every Thanksgiving, we must pause and think about the things we are most grateful for in our lives. So here is my list. I am thankful for my beautiful, wonderful, healthy baby girl. That goes without saying. Not only am I thankful for her, but I am thankful for being able to experience being a… KEEP READING »

Just a note before bed: Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow! I hope you all get to eat lots of turkey and stuffing and watch lots of football. ‘Cause that’s what we’ll be doing!


the gift of sleep

the gift of sleep

A few nights in the past week or so, I’ve stayed up past my usual bedtime of 10 or 11pm to get some work done. Usually around midnight I’d finally crawl into bed- not a big deal, considering Maggie usually sleeps until at least 7am. I’d still get 7 hours of sleep! No problem! Until… KEEP READING »


just two things

just two things

I’m pretty sure I sang ‘The Wheels on the Bus’ about 4,928 times today. Approximately. I’m glad to know that I’m not the only one who has experienced frustration with garbage can shopping. Should we write a letter or something?


an entire blog post about GARBAGE CANS

an entire blog post about GARBAGE CANS

On Friday, I spent 2 hours shopping for a garbage can for our kitchen. I know. I never imagined that garbage cans could be so complicated as to require that amount of time shopping for one. Now granted, I wasn’t shopping for a garbage can the whole time, but it was the primary reason for… KEEP READING »


all about meme

all about meme

Just when I was wondering what I would blog about today, Jane tagged me for a meme and made my life easier! Rules: 1- Link to the person that tagged you and post the rules on your blog. 2- Share 7 random and or weird things about yourself. 3- Tag 7 random people at the… KEEP READING »


welcome to the inside of my brain. please buckle your seatbelt.

welcome to the inside of my brain. please buckle your seatbelt.

Wow, 2 posts in one day during NaBloPoMo! Does that give me extra-credit or something? A cookie? A piece of gum? Anything? So this is what we woke up to this morning: Dan calls it ‘Crystalized Bull-Shit’. I’d have to agree with him. I’m not ready to deal with taking a baby outside in the… KEEP READING »

Dan just sent this to me… I think I just peed my pants.


are we there yet?

are we there yet?

This past weekend we drove to Baltimore to visit Dan’s family. They hadn’t seen Maggie since she was 4 weeks old, so they were in for quite a surprise. When they saw her last, she wasn’t even smiling yet. Now, she never shuts up! Traveling with a 7 month old for more than just a… KEEP READING »

doppelganger

Dan’s parents found some old pictures of Dan when he was a kid, and I scanned a few of them. This one FREAKS ME OUT. We’ve had several people ask if there is any hint of me in Maggie. So far, nothing really. But does she look like her daddy or what?!?!?


anything to save me time

anything to save me time

Time is not something I have very much of lately. It’s 11:01pm on Tuesday night, and I’m hurrying to write my blog post so I can still be a participant in NaBloPoMo. I haven’t read a single blog on my feedreader since last Thursday, nor have I viewed any Flickr photos. I have yet to… KEEP READING »


returned

returned

We’re back. And we’re tired. And my inbox is FULL. I have pictures from our weekend- lots of fun, some fussiness and tears (Maggie’s, mostly. We tried not to cry too much at midnight when she WOULD NOT SLEEP.) But for now, it’s off to bed.


a post from Thursday

a post from Thursday

Okay so I could only think of 2 topics to pre-post about while I was away this weekend… so this is just a filler post for NaBloPoMo. Is that cheating? (Maura’s been on my case about that! hehe) Right now it’s Thursday night, 11:08pm. I took some allergy medicine a while ago and I’m getting… KEEP READING »


the incredible shrinking woman

the incredible shrinking woman

Some of you may have noticed my little blurb over there on the sidebar about my weight loss. At the beginning of September, I decided it was time to take some serious action to lose the rest of this baby weight that’s been hanging around. I had been working out more than I ever had… KEEP READING »

flashback

When I was on my little blog-haitus back in October, I still spent loads of time on the computer. (I mean, come on, if I could attach it as a body part, I probably would.) Most of it was client-work related, but I did take some time to get myself and my files organized. Because… KEEP READING »

posting from the future. or is it the past? ah, forget it.

We’re leaving tomorrow morning to visit Dan’s family (grandma, aunt and uncle, etc) in Baltimore. A 4 day trip with a 7 month old, the longest we’ve ever taken with Maggie. Should be interesting. Because of this possible disconnect from The Internet for 4 days (I know, how on Earth will I survive? I’m shaking… KEEP READING »


out on a high note

out on a high note

After a very long, stressful day that had me almost in tears* on my way to pick Maggie up from daycare, it ended with three glorious events: 1. Maggie. Just her smile is enough to make my day better. 2. A fajita-burrito and chips from Moe’s. Who cares how many Weight Watchers points it was?… KEEP READING »

the road to financial freedom

There is nothing I hate more than debt. Now, I know that some debt is necessary- a mortgage, for instance. I know we’ll pretty much always have a house payment to make, at least until we’re old and gray. It will probably be a long time (if not forever) until we’re able to pay cash… KEEP READING »

new kitchen

Ta-da! And now, I’m going to bed. My right shoulder is killing me from all the painting I’ve done in the last 48 hours. PS: Thank you, WordPress, for having an automatic ‘Save Draft’ feature. Something weird just happened and I thought I was going to have to use my brain to put the picture… KEEP READING »


more gushing about my kitchen

more gushing about my kitchen

Kitchen pictures are coming, I promise! I spent most of today priming the 2 new cabinets we had installed, taping off the edges of the countertops and priming the edges of the wall (the new countertops are a bit lower than the old ones, so there are some paint-touchups that need to be done), and… KEEP READING »

Another quick and dirty post today (boy, I suck at this NaBloPoMo thing! I swear it won’t be 30 days of crappy, hurried posts! I even have a list of things I want to post about!) My kitchen is currently undergoing a transformation right now, and I just have to say: the new countertops? I… KEEP READING »
