I am LOVING my mailman this week. Yesterday’s “fun mail” was the May “Daily Dose of Green” box. This is a new subscription for me, so I was super pumped to see what was inside. The boxes are $15/month (shipping included) and contain “samples of natural, organic, green, Eco-friendly and vegan products to your door in attractive earth friendly packaging”. Yay! They sounded a lot like Conscious Box to me, so I was curious how the two would compare. (You can see my review of my last Conscious Box [the April Mystery box] here.) What I saw when I opened […]
Yesterday afternoon I stepped outside to toss a jar into the recycling bin and what did I find waiting for me? My much-anticipated May Stork Stack! Yay! In early April, I (er, my babies) won a free month’s subscription for coming in 4th in Stork Stack’s “Cutest Baby” contest on Facebook. Now, I’d like to think that we won based solely on the irresistible cuteness of my kiddos, but that totally wasn’t the case. I could have submitted a photo of my left pinkie toe & still came in 4th. The truth is, it was all just a matter of which moms could […]
I finally got around to putting together the “Late April” edition of “2 weeks in 2 minutes”. Better late than never, no? Hopefully I don’t lose interest in making them anytime soon. I love that I can include so many little glimpses of our days in one cute little video. They’re long enough to get an idea of what we were up to, yet short enough that it doesn’t feel like I’m watching old Aunt Ida’s Florida vacation slides. The next couple of weeks are going to be exciting for me, mail-wise. (Yes, I consider good mail days “exciting”… That’s […]
Nine Months! This time I’m gonna skip the “oh my god they’ve grown so faaaast” junk & just get right to the photos. Cos there’s lots of ’em. (I may have taken 259. So yeah. Lots.) I’ll stop myself here. I assure you, there are a LOT more I could post… but I’ll spare you the other 200+ photos. That would make for one mighty long blog post (and many, many unfollowers).
I suppose I should be embarrassed (ashamed?) to admit this, but… My babies are addicted to judge shows. And commercials. Especially commercials featuring attorneys. Coincidence? Sure, I put kid-friendly shows on Netflix for them too. Well, mostly Yo Gabba Gabba (tell me those songs aren’t catchy!). But nothing holds their attention more than a thrilling episode of Judge Joe Brown or an obnoxious commercial for local personal injury attorneys. I think it all goes back to the womb. When I was pregnant last summer, I was stuck on bed rest and spent my days sprawled out on the couch watching […]
We took the girls to the park yesterday with one goal in mind: Some good old fashioned springtime swing time! Weee! I LOVED swings when I was little (hell, I still do today), so I was looking forward to seeing the pure joy on the girls’ faces as we pushed them through the air for the very first time. The giggles of delight as they excitedly swung higher and higher… Soooo you can imagine my disappointment when things ended up looking more like… well, this: Ah, babies.
Mike and I took the girls on a little walk around the neighborhood yesterday. And dammit, it was perfect. Perfect temperature. Perfect amount of sunshine. Perfect lack of wind. All of my ideal walking conditions were met and then-some. Bravo, mother nature! You’re alright! We walked past big, beautiful old homes (that I plan to occupy in my next life). We came across birds and squirrels and scary dogs. We smelled flowers and soil and Nyquil (well, Mike smelled that one). We took in all of the sights and scents that springtime has to offer. It was a beautiful day and […]
Confession: I’m addicted to subscription boxes. Like, unhealthily so. What’s a subscription box, you ask? Welp, basically it’s a box that you receive in the mail (usually monthly) that’s chock full o’ goodies. They can range from $10/month to $50+, depending on the company/products offered. Some will tell you what will be in the boxes before they ship, but most don’t (which is the fun part!). Nothing beats a good mystery box… Well, unless it totally sucks. haha 😉 There’s a TON of companies doing this now, so you’re bound to find something that tickles your fancy. I’ve seen boxes for moms/babies […]
I started drafting a “real” post, but in light of all the crummy things going on in the world right now, I thought I’d just share a couple of uplifting videos instead. (And I might be experiencing a bit of writer’s block too, but let’s keep that on the down-low.) First, the much talked about national anthem from the Sabres/Bruins game in Boston the other night. I wouldn’t say that I’m a very patriotic person, but this most definitely brought tears to my eyes. If you haven’t seen it yet, check it out. If you already have, it’s worth seeing […]
The girls’ nursery doesn’t get too much use during the daytime, which is sad since it’s such a cozy little room. So a few days ago, as we were getting the girls ready for their baths, I decided to do a quick photo shoot in there. The lighting was perfect, so I thought the shots would be awesome. And they probably would have been… if I had bothered to adjust my camera’s white balance setting from “incandescent” to “sunlight”. Whoops. My bad, yo. Luckily, with a little help from Picasa, I adjusted the color enough to make the photos look […]
