Hostesses with the Mostesses

  I like parties, but I don’t like the clean-up, so I’m pretty excited about this upcoming shindig: the More Than Mommies Mixer. My new gal pal Christine at More Than Mommmies and her partner in crime, Janene, are hosting a blog hop and you’re all invited!! Until this morning, when Christine was kind enough … Continue reading


A little over a month ago, I had to see a dermatologist because of some shady looking moles. I didn’t think anything of it until  my doctor started throwing around the “C” word. I was actually hanging at a local bookstore, trying to get some work done, when my doctor called. I frantically tried to … Continue reading

Weekly Photo Challenge: Foreign

  This is my handsome husband. He does many things well, but he is noted for his uncanny ability to sleep through anything: the local bar scene with bands blaring inches from his face, conversations with his lovely wife… This picture was taken the week we brought our first baby home in 2009. I learned … Continue reading

Another Open Letter to Ass Coulter

Dear Ann, Hi, you suck, and on so many different levels. Let’s take a walk down memory lane, shall we? 1. Remember the time you were chatting with Matt Lauer and you actually said these words about 9/11 widows: “These broads are millionaires, lionized on TV and in articles about them, reveling in their status … Continue reading

It’s Been a Log Week

Remember when I warned you that if and when my little guy made friends with the toilet, you would all hear about it? Well, today is the day! Not only did my man tell his preschool teacher that he had to pee, he actually did the deed while at school!! To celebrate, he wanted to … Continue reading

For Me?!

This morning, my crazy antics were nominated for the Liebster Award! If you’re all, “That’s super fantastic, but WHAT is the Liebster Award?!” you’re not alone. Originally, I thought Senator Joe Lieberman wanted to recognize me for my political rants, but then I did some research. The Liebster (German for “dearest”) Award goes to baby … Continue reading

We Put the FUN in Dysfunctional

Friends have often said my family should be filmed for a reality television show and not until this past week did I really understand why. Below are a few of the conversations that have taken place between members of my family: After dinner one night, my mom turned on the radio and asked, “Is this … Continue reading

Weekly Photo Challenge: Silhouette

This is my first Photo Challenge entry and I’m already wondering if I screwed it up. I’m thinking this may count as more of a shadow, but it’s adorable nonetheless:   My 16-month-old just recently discovered her shadow, or silhouette. She’s eternally delighted that her “friend” goes everywhere with her (although you should see the … Continue reading

Debate THIS.

I am so tired of these slap fights debates. I am forced to listen to my toddlers all day; I don’t need to tune into more whining and “it’s MY turn” when I’m trying to find reruns of “The Big Bang Theory.” I’m having a difficult enough time trying to decide who gets my vote … Continue reading

I Want a Mulligan

This past week was a complete cluster. I barely had time to brush my teeth let alone write. As a result, I was cranky. I woke in the middle of the night and scribbled ideas on the cover of magazines that were sitting on my nightstand, yet never had the chance to turn those thoughts … Continue reading
