Five for Friday

Today, you get five updates on my life. You know, since you’re on edge for every exciting move I make. 1. I upgraded to Pandora One this week because I hope to use some of the stations while in labor and the idea of hearing McDonald’s ads, Vista Print coupons and pleas to upgrade my [...]

Five for Friday

Can we hear it for handy husbands? I’m a big believer in girl power, and I know how to do a lot of stuff. I can change my oil, I know my way around a toolbox and I am not intimidated by heavy lifting. But I admit to getting sexy shivers when my husband works [...]

Five for Friday

Most days, I’m really glad that I have a separate blog about pregnancy/family, because: a) When I wasn’t pregnant, I wasn’t all that interested in those who were b) I get to use a totally different voice over there than I do heres c) I really wanted to keep this as a resource for sharing [...]

Five for Friday

This is must-see TV and I don’t just say that because it’s my company that produced it. This girl is absolutely inspirational for her courage in the face of a very difficult future. I spent an hour watching her YouTube makeup videos and they are fantastic…in some ways, she’s a typical 13-year-old. In some ways, [...]

BabyBug-34-Weeks-2

I have been driving Lucas crazy singing this: “Let’s go to the beach, ‘each, let’s go get away!” (Can you name the song?) YES, I am celebrating Labor Day in style with what will be our final family-of-two (or four if you count the dogs) weekend away! Can’t wait to put my toes in the [...]

BabyBug 33 Week Belly (Maine)

Dudes. My mom just booked her flights to Orlando for the birth of my baby. Ish is getting REAL. As of tomorrow, I have six weeks until my due date. And I’m already starting to wonder if she’ll come early. BabyBug, not my mom. Although she’s welcome. This is nuts. This weekend is also one [...]

Five for Friday: Julia Child Edition

I will forever associate PBS with Julia Child, the woman whose cooking shows are STILL relevant and entertaining today. I watched them as a child (“Jooooooolia Child is on!”) and watch them all the time today as an adult. There’s something so endearing and dang likeable about her. Today’s Five for Friday is a tribute [...]

Five for Friday

It’s Friday, Friday…can’t believe we made it to Friday… You’ll notice I’m posting a little less often than normal, and that’s in large part due to my celebration of The Summer of No. When I don’t have anything to say I don’t say anything. When I do, I do! Overall, this technique has been a [...]

Five for Friday

IT’S AUGUST! Which means a ton of things, not the least of which is that my baby brother is getting married this month! Speaking of babies, here’s what you may have missed on BugChild: Why I’m Getting a Bonus Ultrasound! Dear BabyBug (30 Weeks) We Laughed. I Cried. There Was Cake. As of tomorrow, I [...]

Five for Friday

A few exciting things about this weekend: It’s National Dance Day. Yes, it’s kind of a made-up holiday from the crew at “So You Think You Can Dance” but I barely need an excuse to get my groove on as it is. It’s my first baby shower…and I can’t believe how blessed I am to [...]
