You know that time Kristen Bell saw a sloth in real life? I can totally relate to that video because Tyler thinks it’s hilarious to find the cutest animals online and then make me stare at them until I may or may not have tears in my eyes. Do you know that feeling? Or at least have … More ready for back to work?
First, I’m over Christmas pjs. Can I say that without everyone thinking I’m a scrooge? Maybe because I thought it was this magical tradition my family did growing up, and then I grew up and learned that almost EVERY OTHER FAMILY did the exact same thing. Also because I have no room in my drawer/pretend … More christmas wrap
I bet you were all on the edge of your seat wondering when I’d ever post again. Sometimes I’m just not talented enough to work from home, host Thanksgiving dinner, Instagram Petey pictures, and blog all in the same weekend. In fact, this past weekend I probably proved I’m barely talented enough to just host … More remember that blog thing i did? i almost forgot.
Last week I voluntarily skipped a couple blog posts (and let the children skip school) in favor of spending time with Tyler’s mom for the weekend. I was talking to a friend about how Marci had just flown in Friday morning and was already leaving that Sunday afternoon. They remarked something along the lines of that … More quick trips
Remember that one time I went out of town and forgot to take my computer and couldn’t do my blog post? Well this is my excuse… Tyler’s mom invited all the sisters (and this in-law sister) out for a girls weekend together. We lazied about, talked a lot, and ate out a few times–so basically it was great. … More travel and things
A few years back I started this new tradition for the boys: decorating their bedroom door for birthdays. It’s like a mini party to kick-off a day of birthday awesomeness. Lately I have been suffering from horrible seasonal allergies, yesterday being one of the worst days at work (yay for meetings with constantly watery eyes!). All I … More milo’s birthday and the realities of being a forgetful mom
You know that time Milo had not-so-serious sounding symptoms (fever, throwing up, painful cough) that turned into visit to a walk-in clinic, then a trip to the emergency room, then an ambulance ride to a children’s hospital. The most important part of all of this was that he ended up being ok. Rhino virus (basically a … More that time i was helpless
In two days we’ll be heading out to Puerto Rico! Why Puerto Rico? We’ve never been there before, there’s lots of sand, ocean and sun; and I didn’t need to apply for three new passports. Plus, I need to practice all that Spanish I’ve been learning. I’m typically a last minute, do whatever works out, sort of … More two cent tuesday: vacation days
Last week marked a wild transition from full-time-always-crazy work to full-time-always-crazy home with kids on spring break. As work-free as I thought I was going to be, it turned out not the case. But I didn’t have to go into the office once, and we ate a lot of treats and yummy food, so I still … More yay, no work! (sort of)
Writing for a living has definitely given me plenty of “writers block” moments. Blogging, although giving an open forum to write anything I feel like, is also a great place to practice procrastinating. Sure, you don’t want to blog if you have nothing to write about. But lets be honest, I have random thoughts swirling around in my head all … More the art of procrastination
