LAST CHANCE! Depending on what you choose, you might still have time to get something awesome for your Valentine. Subscription boxes are a great last minute choice, and if you have Amazon Prime you can probably get something delivered by Saturday. Hey, better late than never, right? Once again, here’s my “10 Super Awesome Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas” post — with ideas for kids, husbands, friends, yourself. 😉 And here’s the link to the “Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas for Vegans” post — with awesome gift ideas for vegans and anyone who appreciates stuff that doesn’t suck. Also, I have a […]
Oh, snap! There’s less than 4 weeks until V-Day! Have you procured suitable gifts for your loved ones yet? (I haven’t! haha) I thought I’d take some time to hunt down some fun Valentine’s Day gift ideas for everyone on your list (if V-day “lists” are even a thing). Enjoy! Gifts for the kiddos: Melissa & Doug Sweet Treat Tower – I would have LOVED this when I was little! I was obsessed with anything food-related, especially treats. I noticed the Melissa & Doug cookie set around Christmas time and really wanted to get it but was able to resist… This […]
One year ago today I welcomed you into the world. Both of you. My “two little rosebuds”. You were tiny and pink and oh-so-fragile. I was afraid to hold you. I didn’t know a damn thing about motherhood. Or babies. Or twins. It was all so foreign to me. So new. So… terrifying.
Well, that was fast. Tuesday marked my big one-year blog anniversary. Needless to say, I had quite the party. What? You weren’t invited? Man, you totally missed out then. Martha Stewart went all out on my rosebud-themed decorations & fancypants 5-course vegan dinner. Oh, and my dear friend Oprah surprised all of my guests with pink-hued cars of their choice. Good times. So yeah, as you can imagine, a lot has changed since my very first blog post. Remember this? (Mike edited it a bit since the last posting): Clearly, I’ve had my little rosebuds. That whole “getting them out of me” thing […]
So, it’s Valentine’s Day. Let’s pretend that I got all dressed up and went out for a fancypants dinner with my husband. Let’s pretend he brought me a dozen roses and a box of expensive vegan chocolates. (They were oh-so-yummy.) And since we’re all about bullshitting pretending, let’s pretend these are NOT Christmas dresses and that they wore them for more than 10 minutes.
5 months!! They’re starting to look like real people now! Not that they weren’t before, but you know — they look less infant-y. It’s getting easier for relatives (and us!) to tell them apart now. They can squeal. And babble. And giggle. Sometimes they even screech like two angry cats. (Not a fan.) Oh, and they roll… sorta. Rolling to their tummy? Easy. Rolling from their tummy back to their, uh, back? Ain’t happenin’. And they are NOT pleased when they’re stuck on their bellies. So they let us know… by screeching. LOUDLY. But I’m not complaining… Despite their noisier presence as […]
My dear husband is 33 today. (He finally caught up with me!) When we met face to face for the first time on a super awkward coffee date at Barnes N’ Noble, I would never have guessed that we’d be married — & expecting twins— a mere 4 years later. It’s been a bumpy road at times, and we’ve certainly mastered the art of “bickering like an old married couple”, but I can’t imagine being with anyone else. Sorry Michael, but unless you have other plans, I’m afraid we have many, many more years of driving each other crazy ahead of […]
I’ve never been a follower of any particular religion. I was baptized as a baby, but that’s as far as I got. With that said, Easter has never been much of a big deal for me. Sure, when I was a wee lil’ whippersnapper, I took much delight in hunting for my basket full of pastel-wrapped goodies & rainbow-colored jelly beans… What kid didn’t? But once I learned that the whole “Easter bunny” thing was a big sham, the holiday just kind of lost its appeal. It went downhill even more once I hit my teenage years & went vegetarian. […]
