there were Transformers in my HOUSE! The Barbies nearly staged a revolt!

there were Transformers in my HOUSE! The Barbies nearly staged a revolt!

You know what’s awesome? Spending an entire day with your old college roommates and their kids. MOSTLY BOYS! And a new, chubby-cheeked baby. And more cheeks… because seriously. I love these girls and I wish we got a chance to see each other more than once or twice a year. It’s amazing to think that… KEEP READING »

how to make a bench cushion without sewing! at all! and also a pillow!

Hey! Remember when I redid our office? And I promised to share details on how I made the cushion in the window seat? Yeah, so I completely forgot about it… sorry, man. LIFE. BUT HERE YOU GO! Disclaimer: I do not sew, and I am really not all that crafty. I went into this Make… KEEP READING »

scarf swap!

Just a quick post today while I have some downtime at my office job (things have been CAH-RAY-ZEE in recent weeks but today I finally have some breathing room. To like, you know, do more then eat a 5 minute lunch and go pee a few times. heh.) I wanted to share with you the… KEEP READING »

This girl- even with her Drama and Whining Moments- is seriously a delight these days. She makes us laugh and she’s an amazing big sister and she’s just growing into such a neat kid. If I do say so myself :) — In the car: “Hey Mommy! Let’s play the Quiet Game! Whoever beeees the… KEEP READING »

recipe: greek yogurt dip

In my quest to eat a little better and lose this last fifteen pounds of baby weight before my baby goes off to college turns two, I’m on the hunt for healthy snacks. I like snacks. And I need them. I can’t go more than 2 hours or so without needing food of some kind…. KEEP READING »

snow: burns like fire or fun family playtime? experiment number two

Maggie didn’t make it out into the snow until she was almost two. Between the timing of her birthday and sicknesses and when the snow came that following winter, it just never worked out before then. But it was completely worth it, because I got what is probably Top 5 Favorite Pictures Ever As A… KEEP READING »

Maggie, Wednesday night at dinner: “Mommy, do you have any plans on Saturday?” (Um. When did she turn twelve? All proper and fancy with her speaking. Geez.) When I told her no, we didn’t have any major plans, she immediately sprung her brilliant plan on us: a playdate with her cousin! Yes! Mom! Please! A… KEEP READING »


just a Thursday

just a Thursday

My lovely friend Keli inspired me to get my camera out today. I have been less-than-motivated to take pictures lately, mostly because OMGTHEBUSY! and a lot of days I’m just lucky to snap a few shots on my cellphone. But she posted some gorgeous photos of her girls earlier this week so I decided to… KEEP READING »

favortweets, round #22

Anytime I need a pick-me-up, I go read through my favorited Tweets on Twitter. I love you guys. Seriously. TwoAdults: Saw a NYT article about men/women sexting immediately after sending my husband this: I wouldn’t mind a cheeseburger and some cake. Tonight. AllisonB: There is not enough patience in this world to have to sit… KEEP READING »

Audrey is at that magical age of toddlerhood. She’s currently straddling the fence between baby and kid, where she completely understands everything we say, but can’t really communicate yet, and still needs just about everything done for her, but she is running around the house like a banshee at full speed from the minute she… KEEP READING »


2012: the year of awesomeness and some goals

2012: the year of awesomeness and some goals

I don’t really make resolutions each new year, mostly because I don’t really have any bad habits I’d like to break (Not that I don’t HAVE any bad habits. It’s just that I want to keep them. And I will never, ever give up chocolate so you can just shut it. ha.) But I do… KEEP READING »


Mission: No More Moustache, Please.

Mission: No More Moustache, Please.

My Teenage Self would be horrified to know I now have to concern myself with FACIAL HAIR, but it’s true. Getting older, hormones, having children-my body has changed, that’s a fact. I mean, I don’t have a full-on beard or anything, but I do have some unsightly hair on my upper lip from time to… KEEP READING »


goodbye, 2011!

goodbye, 2011!

It’s already 2012! But here is my 2011 review survey that I borrowed from the lovely Janet. Heeeere we go! 1. What did you do in 2011 that you’d never done before? I traveled to Austin TX for The Blathering to meet and play with some lovely ladies. I tagged along with Dan to Las… KEEP READING »
