recipe: Stuffed Pepper Soup

recipe: Stuffed Pepper Soup

mmm what could be better on a cold day than soup? And what’s better than soup? Soup that isn’t really soupy, but more like a chili-type thing. Also: TOPPED WITH CHEESE. This is a recipe for Stuffed Pepper Soup that I got from my mom. It’s ridiculously simple and amazingly delicious. And it makes a… KEEP READING »


FRIDAY!

FRIDAY!

Still have time left in the day for some Friday 5! 1. How often do you get paid? When my clients send me checks! heh Being a freelancer comes with the joy of irregular payments. Which is okay with me, really, because at least The Husband gets paid regularly. And it makes getting the mail… KEEP READING »


unrequited love

unrequited love

Apparently not only does she not share my feelings, she rejects my sentiments outright. But she sure looks cute in pigtails.


WTF Wednesday

WTF Wednesday

The hilarious and totally Hawt Trannyhead (who is currently taking the bar exam, KICK BUTT GIRL!) started a tradition recently of WTF Wednesday: the last Wednesday every month, you simply post abuot the things in your life lately that have made you go WTF??! And here we go. This cold Maggie and I have right… KEEP READING »

h is for horse. and hippo.

First, before I write anything else, I thought I should share a little disclaimer about my water post from the other day. A commenter pointed out that it’s possible to drink too much water. I knew this, of course. I’ve heard the stories of the crazy people on the radio station contests who have become… KEEP READING »


the weekend will cure everything, right?

the weekend will cure everything, right?

We are all REALLLLLY tired in our house today. Somebody (me) stayed up too late last night watching DVRd Thursday night tv shows (oh hi, Midnight!) and then Somebody Else (Maggie) thought it would be fun to wake up at 4:30am and break my heart by yelling ‘Snuggle Mommy!’ in a sad, teary toddler voice… KEEP READING »


weight loss tips: water, water, water.

weight loss tips: water, water, water.

So! I’m finally getting my butt back in gear and writing another post in my little weight-loss series. Before I proceed, I thought I’d give you an update on my own weight status. It’s been a month since I officially reached my goal of 120 pounds (which was 11 pounds lost from Thanksgiving to January)… KEEP READING »

It has become increasingly obvious to me lately that sometimes it’s more effective to capture Maggie via video than photos. As a baby, she didn’t do much other than lay there and be cute (or weird-looking, because all babies- even the cute ones- had a Weird-Looking Baby Phase) And that motionless-cuteness was adequately captured using… KEEP READING »


recipe: Chicken Pesto Pasta

recipe: Chicken Pesto Pasta

This is a favorite meal in our house- Dan loves it, and I love it too. My love for it is only partly because it’s delicious. The other part is that it takes about 20 minutes from start to finish, and who doesn’t love THAT? Ingredients: chicken breasts (usually 2-3 depending on their size), a… KEEP READING »


imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

Confession: sometimes, I curse like a sailor. It’s a bad habit, I know, and one that some people may be surprised to learn about me. I tend to keep things quiet in mixed company and watch my mouth (my Mama taught me MOSTLY well, apparently) but at home… well, just ask Dan. Especially when I’m… KEEP READING »


how is it Friday already? SRSLY.

how is it Friday already? SRSLY.

Wow so I’ve totally sucked as a blogger this week. Blame that thing called work. Stupid, crazy, busy work. But being busy right now is a very very good thing, considering the state of our economy and also the fact that I’m about to kick my price-shopping and final-lens-decision-making for my birthday present into high… KEEP READING »

This morning as we were walking into MyGym for Maggie’s class, I slipped on some ice and fell face-first. With Maggie in my arms. It was totally my own stupid fault, really. The entrance to the gym is in the back of the building, and there is a Starbucks drive-thru that wraps around the building…. KEEP READING »

February is my boyfriend.

So far, February is TOTALLY kicking January’s butt.
