I Feel Pretty

Look at me!!! If you’re reading me through a feed or in Google Reader then you HAVE to come by and see my new look. Isn’t it amazing? Many thanks to Emily at June Lily Studio for her professionalism, talent and most importantly patience with me during this design experience.

Don’t Interrupt the Silence

I had this week’s blogging all figured out. Then life happened. This week wasn’t supposed to be crazy busy, but it has sort of ended up that way. Elijah found out Monday that he will working late every night this week. He didn’t get home until past eight o’clock last night. This puts a VERY…

Pride

While taking Asher to school this morning “Slide” by the Goo Goo Dolls was playing on the radio. It reminded me of watching Sesame Street with Asher when the Goo Goo Dolls were guests. I had to post the video. Years ago, we recorded the song and watched it over and over again. It still…

All Of Your Cigarettes

I have fallen off the wagon. Hard. I’m actually pretty sore, both physically and mentally. I don’t know what happened. After four cigarette free years (minus the occasional bummed one here or there) I took up smoking again. It was so easy. I bought a pack on the way home from work this past Sunday…

Barely Breathing

Sorry about the silence. I realize that I’ve been off the grid for the past week. I took the kids to Oklahoma for one final anxiety ridden blast before school starts. It was a nice visit and I’m pretty sure I made up for the lack of photos the last time around. I guess we’ll…

Welcome to the Working Week

Well, we’re back from our whirlwind Dallas trip. We met our good friends Kathryn and Zach Nash (you can find them at Mixed Handbag and Nash Creative respectively) for a weekend of shopping, photography and kid wrangling. Oh! Em! Gee! All I can say about that crazy visit is that next time, Kathryn and I…

57 Channels (And Nothin’ On)

A month or so ago, our family was “randomly selected” to complete a Nielson television survey. They offered to pay us $30 (the cash came in the envelope with the surveys!) and all we had to do was write down all the shows we watched for a week and send it in the following Friday….

Pictures of You

Alright I admit it. Sometimes, I am less than perfect. Sometimes, I don’t do things that I know I should simply because the very idea of it is exhausting. Case in point, last week’s trip to Pryor. We were there for five days and throughout that week I believe I pulled out the camera twice….

Sombody’s Watching Me

As I mentioned in my previous post, the kids and I spent last week in Oklahoma. Taking this trip was a big step for me. It has always seemed overwhelming for me to take Asher on trips alone. I remember, when he was much younger, how nervous I felt about taking him to the mall…

All Aboard for Oklahoma

I have next week off so I’m loading up the kids and heading out to visit our family in Oklahoma. Elijah has to work so he will be looking after Chester and puttering around the house in the evenings missing us desperately. I hope to have something interesting to say when I get back next…
