Where I had made mischief of one kind…and another. After putting Wild Thing to bed, my body wanted nothing […]

The Can of Worms is…..Open

I’m going to say something here I’ve been thinking for a long time. Something I need to get out, something that’s likely going to earn me a lot of flak from all sides. But the thing is: stay at home moms have one up on me. I know being a stay-at-home-mom is tough. I have […]

One Big Happy

The day of my sister’s wedding, like any wedding day, was a busy one. So busy in fact, that I let Alex stay in his pajamas until it was time to get him dressed for the ceremony. You could practically hear him yell jackpot! when he realized he could get away with things while we […]

An Ode to Tights

Oh, tights. You light up my life. You keep my legs warm on chilly falls days. You suck in my tummy. Even though that’s a little uncomfortable, you do what’s best for me. You’re always there for support. You compliment my dresses, a gift I can never repay. You make me look somewhat put together […]

National Treasure, My Ass

Nicolas Cage and I have a weird relationship. I cringe at the sight of him. He pretends I don’t exist. It’s weird. Like we dated once and had a bad break-up. There’s some truth to that. I loved the Cageman in Moonstruck. Just watching him lose it completely was awe inspiring. “I lost my hand! […]

Because You’re Mine

Since I have recently been invited to and/or stood up in eleventy-one weddings, I can say this with the utmost conviction: that party was fun. I’m not saying there was a conga line which I led, but I’m not saying there wasn’t. Also, some people got married or something. They cried. Which made me feel […]
