Watch out!

Every time I go into a store I feel like I'm drawn to end caps and cardboard displays!

It's as if the "special item" is being given by the gods and I must instantly purchase it.

Last week I HAD to purchase my "In Touch" magazine then a Diet Dr. Pepper. I don't think I've ever had a Diet Dr. Pepper in my life but because it was in one of those delicious freezer end caps my taste buds started to water and I was in for quite the tasty treat!


I must admit...I'm pretty bummed.

Friday one of Margot's co-workers got her walking papers. It was shocking since her firm has never laid anyone off. It just goes to show that even though we live in our little bubble...we're not too far from the horrible economical climate that's out there.

What happened to Santa?

Wasn't he suppose to bring me a new laptop computer?

Just joking! Santa was great this year and I was able to get some much needed new clothes and tennis shoes.

Of course, I'm still eyeing a new computer and perhaps a new Maclaren MOD Stroller, and a new house. One on the lake with plenty of space and sunlight!

I did it.

So I've had something very heavy on my heart for a month or so now. I can't really go into details on this blog because I'm not sure who's reading it...


I feel so much better. Things went much better than I had expected and I'm glad that I was able to bring up the matter without offending the person.

Glory be!


I'm not sure I can even say the word because I've been so bad lately.

That's right...Diet.

I said as of January 1st that I'd start my diet. I could go on blaming it on tons of different things but the reality is...I've been a very naughty girl!

I think I might want to check out some diet pills because that's the only way that I was able to lose all of the weight pre-pregnancy.

Happy Birthday to me.

I seriously can't get over the fact that I'm 32 today. Damn. WTF have I been doing with my life?

Actually, I'm quite happy at where I'm at these days. I feel like I've "been there, done that" with corporate America and I don't care to ever do that again.

I feel like my biggest accomplishment to date is my two girls. They are so damn awesome and I can't even write how much I love them. Each day I look at them and I'm so proud at the people they are. Not to mention...they are seriously cute.

Although I had a sick kid ... today was the perfect birthday. My two girls, flowers from Marg and a perfect dinner with minimal screaming and whining.

What to believe?

The other day I was reading my infamous "In Touch" magazine when I saw an advertisement for Hydroxycut. Now at first I had no idea what it was - but as I read I became interested.

I soon looked into Hydroxycut reviews and found that this might be a good choice for me when I decide I really want to get out there and lose weight!


I'm seriously trying to figure out how I can watch episodes of L-Word and Big Love online.

Does anyone know how to do this?



just joking.


Okay, so much for a New Year's resolution. I made my commitment and I think it lasted all of ten hours.

Now I feel like I need to whip out the big guns and resort to diet supplements.

Before when I lost all of the weight I needed some help and it was really just a nice "jump start". I ended up losing over 75 pounds and at this point even after having a baby I'm still down 35.

Just maybe?

I think I have an idea of what I want to do when I grow up.

I've been thinking about it for awhile. Both my mom and Margot have mentioned it too.

Real Estate.

I'm going to look into being a Real Estate Agent. I think it involves taking a class which appears to be given online and then I have to sit for an exam.

After I pass the exam I'm going to have to figure out what company I want to go with locally.

The good thing about this is that we have the flexibility with Margot's job and know that we can survive on one income when/if the economy hits shit and real estate is sucking ass.

Let's all hope for good times ahead, right?

I really can't believe...

that Emmy is almost eight months old.

Where has the time gone?

I've done such a horrible job at her baby book and I feel so guilty. At least with Graem we did frequent updates on our website and also filled out most of her baby book.

With Emmy...I think I'm up to the second month.

I'm envious of those women that can do scrapbooking. I think it's such a cool thing to do, not to mention it's such a precious gift for your children and/or loved ones.


Our house has been totally plagued with sickness. I've literally been in the pediatricians office every week for the past two months. Ugh.

This weekend was like none other. Emmy got really sick and was running such a high fever that she just wanted to be snuggled.

Sunday we ended up taking her to the ER where we waited for 10 friggin' hours.

Today we went back to the doctor and I think she might be on the road to recovery.

We'll see....
