Oh Hey There!

Welp, it’s been a long time, mah friends. And that’s not to say I’m quite back to blogging.  I must tell you, it’s been wonderfully cathartic for me to just let some things go.  Like this lovely little blog, for a few solid months.  And my job as playgroup coordinator at the Mom’s League, because … Continue reading

Meal Planning for Dummies

This AM we’re prepping for vacation and I’m trying to cram some studying in (my Operations Management final is tomorrow night, HALLELUJAH) as I listen to Indigo Girls Pandora (I miss those chicks) and chug lemon water.  I’m trying to detox from a DISGUSTING breakfast this AM at a local diner.  I ordered a combo … Continue reading

Loose Ends

I realize I’ve left many loose ends on the old blog of late. First, remember my New Year’s Resolutions? Yeah, me neither. If there is one thing I’ve learned this year, it is this: a woman cannot be expected to set lofty goals for self-improvement when she has a tiny baby/is not sleeping/is dealing with … Continue reading

Weekly Round-Up: So What’s New?

Friends! What is up with you guys? I have feel like we haven’t connected in ages.  Totally my fault.  Things have been busy.  Luckily, my semester is wrapping up, the office reno is nearly complete (photos upon final completion), and in one week’s time I’ll have about a month off from grad school.  Glorious! So the … Continue reading

Bibliophile, Interrupted.

Ah, parenting of the very young: a surefire way to obliterate your love of a good book (or even a good blog post: as I sat to write, my daughter began fussing). I have a floppity-jillion books I want to read, and just precious little time in which to sit down and actually read them.  … Continue reading

On Whispers and Anvils.

My girl Oprah has often said that the universe speaks to us first in whispers. “I say the universe speaks to us, always, first in whispers. And a whisper in your life usually feels like ‘hmm, that’s odd.’ Or, ‘hmm, that doesn’t make any sense.’ Or, ‘hmm, is that right?’ It’s that subtle. And if … Continue reading

Weekly Round-Up: Where Do We Go Now?

Welp, it’s February 18th, and I’ve yet to share with you my February resolutions. Spoiler Alert: I have not done ANY of my February resolutions. And why, you may ask?  In no particular order: my birthday; out-of-town guests; teething; growth spurts; no sleep; finance class; cramming in moments to study; workouts; cooking; Valentine’s Day prep … Continue reading

Weekly Round-Up: Onward.

It’s hard for me to begin this week’s round-up without mentioning how busy we’ve been over here at the Orlando Ranch.  My MIL and SIL and nephew left last Thursday, after a fun-filled week that unfortunately ended with a bout of a stomach bug.  (H, A, and I remain the only men left standing.)  With … Continue reading
