Audrey snippets

She’s 13 1/2 months old. OMGYOUGUYS. — Her first words, we think: “cup” and “quack”. She also pointed to Dan’s picture on my phone today and said, very excitedly, “Da!” — She says “quack” in response to “What does a duck say?” She’ll also start quacking when we sing Old MacDonald. — She doesn’t walk….

Join me in my holiday card obsession! Win free photo cards from Shutterfly (giveaway)

Every year, even though I say I’m not going to, I totally geek out over Christmas cards. I CAN’T HELP IT. They are fun for me. I know some people think it’s lame to send Christmas cards- especially ones with family or baby pictures on them- but you know what? I think they are lovely…. KEEP READING »


The Blathering

The Blathering

On Friday morning, I traveled nearly 1500 miles to spend the weekend with 50 other women, only one of whom I’d ever met in real life. Is that crazy? I think that might be crazy. But you know what? The entire weekend was fabulous. That first night in The Blathering ‘Living Room’, I took a… KEEP READING »

13 Things

So I leave for Austin in less than 48 hours. To say I am looking forward to this weekend’s shenanigans at The Blathering is a SEVERE understatement. Not only am I in need of a break from Regular Life (oh my, but I DO.), but I am going to finally meet some of my favorite… KEEP READING »


office makeover: a neverending project

office makeover: a neverending project

About a bajillion years ago (okay, more like two months) I started our Office Makeover. The before: Since we moved into this house two years (!!) ago, the office has basically just been a storage room/dumping ground for whatever I couldn’t find a place for at the moment. Or was too lazy to put away…. KEEP READING »


flutball

flutball

Tonight I picked the girls up from daycare a little earlier than normal and we stopped at the local high school Homecoming parade. I used to march in that parade, a billion and ten years ago, as a cheerleader. So it was a little crazy for me to be standing there for the first time… KEEP READING »


on running

on running

I think I have slowly fallen in love with running. I used to run- about a billion years ago in junior high and my first few years of high school. I was on the cross country team and I ran the long distance races in track and field. I wasn’t very good. The only running… KEEP READING »


fall fun overload

fall fun overload

Two pumpkin patches/farms in three days. We are definitely getting the most of our fall so far. I AM EXHAUSTED, YOU GUYS. (But the good exhausted.)


so this is happening now

Unrelated, I swear: does anyone have an duct tape? Or rope? Or a cage? I’m asking for a friend.


daily dose of cute

daily dose of cute

You are welcome. (That’s a lima bean in her mouth, by the way. Also: Maggie wore that shirt when she was three. CHUNKA CHUNKA.)


four and a half years, gone by in a blink

four and a half years, gone by in a blink

One of Maggie’s favorite things to do is watch videos of when she was a baby. So today we pulled them up on the tv (XBox is networked to my laptop thanks to my geeky husband!) and for some reason, it just HIT ME. She’s so grown up now. Like, whoa. I mean, I KNOW… KEEP READING »


recipe: sweet & sour chicken

recipe: sweet & sour chicken

I was ridiculously excited when I came across this recipe for homemade sweet and sour chicken. You guys, it is SO GOOD. It’s a little involved with several steps (coating chicken, frying a little bit, then baking) but it is all worth it. Trust me. Start with a plate of chicken breast, cut into chunks…. KEEP READING »
