Buzzed buddies was a weekly-ish series where I invited a friend to get comfortably inebriated and write a guest post on any chosen topic. If you knew my friends you’d probably be surprised at how hard it was to get people to get buzzed and write about whatever they wanted – but then again, maybe you wouldn’t. […]

It may be Friday but Fridays are not exempt from being one of those days. You know, one of those days where you literally wonder how in the hell you survive a single day by yourself. Actually, this week has just been one of those weeks. My week started off by almost setting my house […]

I’ve often found myself wondering why both of my kids are boys. Not that I don’t love having two boys but I’m one of those super annoying people who believes everything happens for a reason, and so I find myself wondering (more than you’d think) why I had boys. During my first pregnancy I really, […]

I have a comondrum (that’s obviously what a conundrum on a Monday is called) and I’m not an idiot, I get that science is actually really awesome but also, seriously, what is up with science’s obsession with breakfast?

Today I’m in the deep, deep midst of an emotional hangover (and just coincidentally more dehydrated than I’ve been in the last year). To top it off, it’s rainy, cold and Monday. Blagggggh. I got to spend the weekend with old girlfriends, laughing too much, drinking too much, talking about everything and anything, giving TMI and being […]

Okay, so I’ve been holding back my excitement this week but the time has finally come. I’m taking a really, really quick trip to Denver this weekend to visit, reminisce, romp and booze with two of my favorite people ever, ABBY AND JEN! Jen literally just booked her flights yesterday because she’s child-free and, well, free to roam […]

Yesterday after work I was at the mall – no kids, no Seth – looking for sandals. I don’t have a lot of time alone anymore since having the kids, especially when doing little random things – like, shopping for sandals – so it’s weird when I am out by myself on a non-occasion. But of course, one […]

This morning was a rough one in our house, not really because anything big happened but simply because we’re in a particularly inconsistent phase of our lives. With a baby and an almost-two-year-old toddler, mornings can be especially challenging because nights can be especially terrifying. Last night was one of those nights. Matty is prone to night terrors and […]
