Cellulitis; A Love Story

Yowsers. So much to share since last post. We are moving. It’s just something we like to do when I am in my last trimester. I think it’s probably because I am so sweet and gentle and never complain.

Week 12 of What to Expect When You Are Expecting, Again

Week 12 How you are feeling: Duh. Your friend Scott has the audacity to say one of those obnoxious pregnancy comments. Scott, father of four. Saying the words. Scott is your friend.

Week 9 of What to Expect When You Are Expecting, Again

Week 5 of What to Expect When You Are Expecting, Again

Week 5 How you are feeling: Tender nips, especially if the baby you are still breastfeeding is teething. Lil punkin’ is just asking to be weaned. You also increasingly notice your heightened sense of smell. Like, to the point where you can tell your husband everything he ate that day because you can smell it […]

That Duck Dynasty Thing…

Ha! Yeah right. I’m not going there. Not cuz i don’t have opinions on the whole debacle, but cuz I am way more self absorbed right now and it’s my blog and I’ll cry/laugh/snarl if I want to. And right now, I’m still pregnant which for me trumps any debate, even when it is stirred […]


The firefighter and I went on our second honeymoon. It. Was. AWESOME.  We went to the same resort where we had our honeymoon nearly eight years (and three kids) ago. We went through security without a hitch, which is mentionable because normally it is an issue because I had surgery several years ago for a […]
