I don’t feel sexy. The last time I felt sexy was probably sometime in my second trimester of pregnancy. What I generally feel like now is a mom whose hair is a mess and whose shirt is always stained with something. A maid – always walking behind someone and picking up. A cook – always … Continue reading »
When I was pregnant with Gummy and all happy and rosy-cheeked, I had a brilliant idea. An idea that I thought was brilliant at the time. I had seen on many blogs, and probably on Pinterest, how moms would take these amazing monthly photos of their infants. With chalkboards, with pieces of a calendar spread … Continue reading »
A few (ok several) weeks ago, the family and I took a short day trip to the Techatticup mining town in Eldorado Canyon. Located a mere 45 min away from Las Vegas, the Techatticup Mine offers a glimpse into Southern Nevada’s history that most tourists never get to see during their visit. Eldorado Canyon was originally … Continue reading »
I really planned on having some posts between Fridays, but you know how life happens. Baby has developed a fascination with the trash. Putting random objects in the trash can has become her favorite. The trash can is too big to fit under the kitchen sink, so I’ve done my best to not let it … Continue reading »
We have a new segment, because what good is a Friday if you can’t get drunk and tell people shit that you probably shouldn’t?! Except I am sharing this stuff with you completely sober! Yay! * * * * I’ll admit it. I pretty much let my kid have … Continue reading »
Sunshine on your face. Air blowing through your hair and tickling your bare toes as you climb higher and higher. Swings are magical. Just watch out for weird ladies with cameras laying under the swings.
“The reason we struggle with insecurity is because we compare our behind-the-scenes with everyone else’s highlight reel.” ~ Steve Furtick I saw this quote for the first time as I read the blog of one of my new followers and it has been stuck in my head ever since. I even have it written in … Continue reading »
Last week, Little Man and I attended one of three 9th grade orientations for the upcoming school year. We were early to the orientation, so we sat on the bleachers of the gym and watched the other kids, parents, students, and staff file in and get ready for the presentations. Young boys acting all aloof … Continue reading »
I don’t have manners. I know what manners are, but I don’t follow the rules. This is why I am just now getting around to my “Freshly Pressed Thank You”. I’ve seen all of you do it – it’s like the Oscar speech of WordPress. Not that this is not a big deal, because seriously…this … Continue reading »
When I got the email that told me I had been Freshly Pressed, they specifically told me that they had always thought of Nevada as a wasteland, but that I had changed their mind. I don’t even think I came close. The desert is a magical place. Pictures really can’t even do it justice – … Continue reading »
Some days I’m able to easily do an hour of yoga in the living room while she takes her morning nap. Days she decides not to take a full nap are meant for hair pulling – of all sorts. We’re having a bit of a difficult day.
I have the cutest accidental picture that I got of Little Man when he was about 10-12 months old. He’s standing at the bathtub, naked, and looking back at me smiling – anxiously awaiting his bath. It was so adorable, that I put it in a frame and it stayed in his bathroom for years. … Continue reading »
