8 things

8 things

I’ve been tagged! by Mel! This one kind of reminds me of 43 Things… which I haven’t updated in a looong time. 8 things I must accomplish before I die: 1. Travel, travel, travel. Doesn’t matter where, really. I would love to just take a couple of months and GO. But that will have to… KEEP READING »


filler post

filler post

I wasn’t tagged for this, but I’m doing it anyway. That’s just how I roll! My excuse for this rather than a real, well-thought out post is that I had 20 people in my house today for a baby shower (yay!) and I’m too tired to write in anything but list-form. (I stole it from… KEEP READING »


let’s talk about rainbows and unicorns for a while!

let’s talk about rainbows and unicorns for a while!

Wow, is it just me or has the Internet been kind of a downer this week? And my blog hasn’t been helping. Let’s do something completely pointless and silly, shall we? (borrowed from Mel) 1. I’ve come to realize that my butt: will never look like this. 2. I’ve come to realize that when I… KEEP READING »


everyone needs some perspective

everyone needs some perspective

If you haven’t seen it already, please read Emily’s post about her close friends and their 16-month-old daughter. Maybe it’s because my baby is close in age, but my heart was breaking reading their story. Help if you can, and spread the word.


four things

four things

I wanted to get that whiny, I’m tired, blahblah-de-blahblah post off the top of the page. Things are better now, at least yesterday and today. A good night’s sleep does wonders for making things All Better. heh. A friend sent this to me via email and instead of bothering the poor people in my address… 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 »


The Mom Test

The Mom Test

My mom sent this to me tonight- made me giggle. I was out walking with my 4 year old daughter. She picked up something off the ground and started to put it in her mouth. I took the item away from her and I asked her not to do that. “Why?” my daughter asked. “Because… KEEP READING »


my first born

my first born

Found this at Julie’s blog :) Here you go mommies- a survey all about your first born! (The full, detailed story is here) WAS YOUR FIRST PREGNANCY PLANNED? Yes- do I ever do anything unplanned? heh WERE YOU MARRIED AT THE TIME? Yes, for 4 years WHAT WERE YOUR REACTIONS? I was shocked, even though… 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 »

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


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 »


more than I could handle

more than I could handle

This makes human breastfeeding look like a piece of cake. I only made it 7 weeks with one baby- imagine all of those latching on every 2 hours! hehe


alert, alert!

alert, alert!

I was officially deemed ‘recovered’ from childbirth today by my doctor! Also? I’m such a follower.


grownup survey

grownup survey

Something a little different than ‘What’s your favorite color?’ (found at Laura‘s blog) 1. What bill do you hate paying the most? Our student loans. Not that they weren’t totally and completely worth it, but they’re so frustrating. They aren’t standard federal loans, meaning that we can’t consolidate and lock in a low rate. So… KEEP READING »

geeks of all species

I love this picture. heeeee.


quickie life update and a joke

quickie life update and a joke

Still working and busy. Still gestating. Drs appointment today, can’t wait to hear the heartbeat again (I SUCK at finding it myself with my monitor, all I hear is a lot of movement) Think I may have felt the baby moving this week, though I can’t be sure yet. Halloween party this weekend, we have… KEEP READING »


geekery

geekery

I took this test (found via Angie) and only missed two- number 6 (why is the sky blue?) and number 9 (what is the oldest fossil discovered?) I rocked the other questions though… looks like that biology degree is paying off, even though I no longer use it in my day job. heh.


tears in my eyes

tears in my eyes

Well thanks to Ehle, I’m at my desk at work CRYING. This is just HILARIOUS. I don’t even think I need to elaborate on it.


25 Signs You Have Grown Up

25 Signs You Have Grown Up

From my inbox… This is so so sad and true. I can relate to like ALL OF THEM. 1. Your houseplants are alive, and you can’t smoke any of them. 2. Having sex in a twin bed is out of the question. 3. You keep more food than beer in the fridge. 4. 6:00 AM… KEEP READING »


true story

true story

I am so fed up with work right now, for numerous reasons. Then I got this in my inbox and it made me smile. THE PLAN In the beginning there was the plan. And then came the assumptions. And the assumptions were without form. And the plan was without substance. And darkness was upon the… KEEP READING »


digital camera

digital camera

If anyone is interested, I’ve listed my old digital camera on eBay. Or if you know anyone who might be :) We’re starting some major cleaning out of crap from our house, hence the sale. I may have some more things soon, too. It’s amazing what 2 people can accumulate over a few years….


diary of a snow shoveler

diary of a snow shoveler

December 8: 6:00 PM. It started to snow. The first snow of the season and the wife and I took our cocktails and sat for hours by the window watching the huge soft flakes drift down from heaven. It looked like a Grandma Moses Print. So romantic we felt like newlyweds again. I love snow!… KEEP READING »


if only it weren’t the truth

if only it weren’t the truth

If this weren’t so true, it would be freaking hilarious. Actually, it’s still hilarious. And the comments from the people who are taking it WAY too seriously are even funnier! I cannot tell you how many clients, both at my full-time job and freelance, have done stuff like this. It makes me want to SCREAM!


pointless meme

pointless meme

Borrowed from Cyn: Open iTunes/iPod or Windows Media Player to answer the following. Go to your library. Answer, no matter how embarrassing it is. *Note: I’m doing this at work, where I only have some of my music… so at home, my answers would be a bit different. How many songs? 416 Sort by artist… KEEP READING »


dork dork dork

dork dork dork

Gmail has now added an RSS-feed ‘ticker’ (though it doesn’t scroll annoyingly like traditional tickers, so yay!) to my email. Fantastic! So is it dorky that when I realized I could add ANY RSS feed I wanted, I added my own? Just so I could see it up there. I took it down right away…. KEEP READING »


10 minutes till the end of work

10 minutes till the end of work

Ten minutes till I get to go home go grocery shopping. So why not do a meme? TEN YEARS AGO… I was a junior in high school, dating some boy named JR who drove a white Camaro, and my best friend was a girl named Heather. I was just learning to drive and I wanted… KEEP READING »


useless internet toys

useless internet toys

Lovely, useless internet toys (borrowed from Maura): Advertising Slogan Generator. My favorites? Probably The Best Jen In The World. The Jen That Eats Like A Meal. Prolongs Active Jen. If you dug a hole in your front yard…? I would end up in the Indian Ocean, just to the southwest of Australia. heh.


stuff on my cat

stuff on my cat

This site is just too funny. The things these people do to their cats! Mine would never sit still long enough for any of that… haha! PS- Several people have written saying that they are having issues with the password protected entries: basically, the password isn’t working. It’s working for me just fine… so I’m… KEEP READING »
