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 […]

It’s Friday. The weather (here) is perfect. We’ve got new music from Justin (the Justin). Life is pretty good, right? So, make the most out of your weekend – make it count. Have a really great Mother’s Day – if you’re a mom, I hope you’re spoiled (or you take time to spoil yourself). If you’re […]

Mother’s Day is just around the corner and all I can think about is how grateful I am to be one. I know the holiday is about moms and that my kids don’t really have a choice to keep me — because they’re stuck with me — but I’m so grateful. Regardless of how much work it is […]

I once got into a huge fight with Seth when I was pregnant with Matty about whether or not Matty (who in this hypothetical situation was a Lebron-level basketball player) would go to college or go straight into the NBA. I, of course, said there was no way he would ever skip college. Seth, of […]

There was an essay written at the start of the year, published here, and it’s sparked a bunch of individuals from all over the country to write their own mini essays recalling the moments they became adults. I’ve read plenty of them and have yet to determine whether or not I consider myself an adult. […]

Long ago, in a time far away from now my much cooler self created a playlist as an ode to Summer. This morning I played that playlist and this (song?) came on. It’s Thursday so it seemed appropriate to share but also, being much wiser now, I can attest that it’s still pretty sound advice. Flashback to the […]

Yesterday morning while I was getting ready I had the Today Show on in the background. They had a small segment on mom-shaming and, of course, I had to know what they were talking about. It wasn’t anything I haven’t already talked about (here or here) but the topic was getting a little attention after the internet […]
