I’m not much of a daytime TV gal, so I’d be embellishing if I told you that I watched Oprah regularly. I don’t. However, I admire her endlessly. Last year, right around the time the Babies movie was released, I saw that Oprah was doing a segment about the movie on her show. I set [...]
Hi, all. I’m finding it a little hard to jump back into this website, but I think I just need to do it. How about I announce the winner of the Apple & Bee Giveaway? Baby steps, you see. The winner of the darling envelope makeup bag is #60, Amy! Have a wonderful weekend, everyone! [...]
I started a new writing job in January. (It’s my dream job! I love it so much! Website isn’t launching until this summer! Annoyingly vague!) I’ve designated one full, uninterrupted, nanny-to-the-rescue day a week to writing and filming videos for the job, and so far, it’s been great. However, as I was approaching a deadline [...]
I have never laughed so hard in my life. BUY THIS BOOK. NOW.
The Tassimo T20 and our slightly miffed French press looking on… When the folks at Tassimo contacted me about sending one of their T20 Brewers my way, I jumped on the chance. Here’s why: 1. I love coffee. (A half cup to full cup at most.) 2. D loves coffee. (Two cups, please.) 3. I [...]
Wito loves the movie Cars. Yes, we all know this…I sound like a broken record over here in regards to that movie, but the boy is obsessed. (And the obsession has lasted for over two years. At least he’s consistent!) We’ve been collecting the Cars diecast cars for a couple of years now, and not [...]
I’m not sure if I ever professed my love for Diapers.com, but we buy all of our diapers, wipes and basically all things baby at the site. (I’ve even found cute clothes!) I’ve never been a crowd person, so ordering from a website keeps me from having to deal with the Hell That is Target [...]
I’m happy to report for my 600th whoorl post that we have a home. Hooray! Not only do we have a home, but we have unpacked all but 9 remaining cardboard boxes. (Which D is working on this very minute.) Our new place couldn’t be any more different than the mid-60s post-and-beam, but you know [...]
This photo is a perfect capture of the majority of my past week. Unfortunately, after a full investigation, our new home is riddled with mold and therefore, unlivable for our standards. We are currently staying 30 minutes south of our old neighborhood with my cousin who has generously opened his home to our family, and [...]
While helping to empty out her husband’s storage unit, a wife makes the startling realization of just HOW MUCH mid-century furniture, accessories, objects and art he has been “collecting” over the past several years. The perpetrator unloading the third of eleventy million cartloads.
We’re moving in 5 days. This is the extent of my packing. Good progress, right? (HOLY SHIT. HELP ME.)
Happy New Year! Uhhhh, we’re currently knee-deep in some house hunting biznass and it has completely CONSUMED our every thought. Be back shortly!
Listen up, ladies and gents! I’m super excited to be working with Leslie Blodgett of Bare Escentuals and Sephora (OMG, pinch me) on a contest that starts today and goes through October 23, 2009. Many many MANY of you all need to enter immediately. Why? #1 – (1) grand prize winner and a guest will [...]
My bake sale is this Saturday, and I still haven’t decided what to make. Good God, the PRESSURE. I want to make every single item you’ve sent me. The Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies? A sure winner! Cheesecake-Marbled Brownies? Delish! Cookies and Cream Rice Krispie Treats? INTRIGUING. I…I just don’t know right now. Must [...]
Color me STOKED. I have this on my left. And this on my right. What’s that, you ask? It’s my new Polaroid camera. Well, it’s the back of the box containing my “new” vintage Polaroid camera. #90 of the last 700 Polaroid cameras ever to be produced, to be exact. I’m not sure if you [...]
