one short year

one short year

Today I found Photojojo’s Photo Time Capsule (thanks to Jessica!) and of course I had to sign up, and I immediately got my first bi-weekly email of photos from this time last year. Two of the photos are piles of gifts and clothes from my baby shower, one is of my GIGANTIC pregnant belly, and… KEEP READING »


too. freaking. funny.

too. freaking. funny.

You may have seen this site already, but if not: YOU MUST GO NOW. HillaryisMomJeans.com. We spent at least a half an hour tonight refreshing the page and absolutely losing it over some of these. A few of our favorites: Hillary gave Jessie the caffeine pills Hillary is BANANAS, B-A-N-A-N-A-S Hillary has nausea heartburn indigestion… KEEP READING »

positive / negative

positive: new ceramic tile floor being installed in my kitchen/dining room next week. GOOD BYE, UGLY CARPET AND WHITE PEEL-AND-STICK TILES! negative: Winter. Isn’t there something called Global Warming that’s supposed to stop the snow, already? Geesh. positive: Maggie becoming very interactive and vocal these last couple of weeks. She’s starting to imitate things we… KEEP READING »


yup, another one

yup, another one

Yes, I realize I’m becoming quite schizophrenic over my blog themes. I just can’t help myself. Still working on some things for this one, but I needed to have it live to do the work. So just ignore it if anything looks weird!


clothing dilemmas; my life is rough

clothing dilemmas; my life is rough

I’ve been having a kind of love-hate relationship with my closet lately. I LOVE that I’m finally down to my pre-pregnancy weight (and then a little bit more!) and I LOVE that I find things in there that are too big for me. But I HATE not being able to find anything in there that… KEEP READING »


and I don’t think they tripped over any cat hair tumbleweeds!

and I don’t think they tripped over any cat hair tumbleweeds!

I was all set to write a great, long post about our visit with Melissa and her family on Saturday, but she beat me to it! I have to say, I blushed a little bit at all the nice things she said about me. Y’all? I AM NOT THAT COOL. In fact, I am nearly… KEEP READING »


something to look forward to

something to look forward to

After 4 days of being in The Fog of The Sick, I think we’re finally emerging, mostly unscathed. Maggie still has a pretty nasty-sounding cough, but it’s a dry cough, and she’s sleeping pretty well again. Those antibiotics must have worked wonders already! She woke up once last night, but she only screamed in my… KEEP READING »


was kinda hoping we’d get George Clooney, but no such luck

was kinda hoping we’d get George Clooney, but no such luck

Last night, around 3 am, we went to the emergency room with Maggie. It was quite a monumental occasion, our first middle-of-the-night visit to the ER with a sick, feverish child. Not really something I was particularly looking forward to, but a milestone nonetheless. She started with a fever on Friday and it continued off… KEEP READING »


elusive sleep

elusive sleep

It’s 5am, and we’ve been up most of the night. Fun! It’s been a Craptastic Week. Maggie and I have been dealing with colds all week. Not terrible ones, just enough to make sleeping difficult and days seem endless. I haven’t slept all night since over a week ago, and neither has Maggie. Yesterday afternoon,… KEEP READING »


blasts from the past

blasts from the past

This weekend, I started my new mission of cleaning out our office. We have three bedrooms: our room, the office, and the extra bedroom- which for 3 years was used for storage since our house has pretty much NO STORAGE space. But, when I got pregnant, we needed to use that room for The Baby,… KEEP READING »


guess I’m just a freak, then

guess I’m just a freak, then

Me: Do you think I’m freaky because I have all these Internet Friends? Dan: That’s not the only reason I think you’re freaky. Me: I’m serious, do you think I’m freaky at all because of it? Dan: No. (pause) Dan: But it certainly doesn’t help your case.


bumps and bruises

bumps and bruises

The other night, Maggie’s aunt Michelle booby-trapped our dining room chair by putting her coat on the back of it. Maggie thought it was a good idea to pull on it, thus landing the chair on top of her. Screaming ensued, complete with Lots of Drama and Tears. For about 20 seconds, until we distracted… KEEP READING »


it’s late and I have a headache

it’s late and I have a headache

I feel like I have eleventy billion things floating around in my head to share, but none of them are really good enough to devote to an entire blog post. So, you are going to get 3 very random paragraphs. I’ve decided to start taking Maggie to daycare for a second day each week. She’ll… KEEP READING »


why I do what I do

why I do what I do

People have asked me before why I blog. I understand that if you’re unfamiliar with the ‘blogosphere’ (Lord, I hate that word.) it can seem like a strange place. And truthfully, it probably is. A bunch of random people, writing about random things from what they did last night, what they ate for lunch, the… KEEP READING »
