You read that correctly! Mary and I have been clogging your newsfeed with our ramblings for one whole year! (Minus the brief hiatus, but who doesn't love a good comeback story?) We started this blog right after I had graduated college; we were balancing odd jobs but knew that writing was always going to be … Continue reading happy first birthday, the lipliner!
It’s 5:30 AM and I’m cleaning up toys. I heard Izzy chirping through the monitor at 4:30 for a bit. She was happy, at least. (Or, to give her due credit, I should say as usual.) But while she did eventually fall back asleep, I did not. Well… I might as well get up and be productive… Izzy has a large playpen, which has … Continue reading this is it?
It sounds so corny when I hear someone say how much they love GIVING gifts rather than RECEIVING them. I’m always like, “Liar.” ...Until those times when I find the perfect gift for that special someone at just the right moment in time… Like my favorite gift ever to my husband, Mike, was the t-shirt in this picture.

Future's so bright, ya gotta wear shades.
There’s an old wives’ tale that says you will crave sweets if you’re pregnant with a girl, salts if you’re pregnant with a boy. This is probably complete BS, but if there was ever proof anywhere, it was me when I was pregnant. Now, it certainly wasn’t a self-fulfilling prophecy: we didn’t find out Isabelle was … Continue reading meat tooth crosses over to the dark (chocolate) side
When I moved in with my husband over 10 years ago, I remember the first time he made me breakfast: some basic scrambled eggs, toast, and bacon. He made four strips of bacon. Four. I was like, “Where’s yours?” I grew up in a family of four and my Dad cooked a whole pound of bacon … Continue reading “who are you and what have you done with my wife?”
When two party politics take over your newsfeed.
I was 26 the first time I skied. It was absolutely terrifying. I was on a 3% incline bunny hill and I was scared to death. Tiny kids were zipping around me while I was cursing under my breath at them. The worst of it was my husband, an expert skier, laughing at me. In retrospect, I understand … Continue reading second string
