No “Box in a Box” Lotus says it will not work I say you should try (I saw this idea at The Bloggess yesterday … and Lotus, I made this sweater just for you.)

The preppy crowd

Yes this post is shameless. 5. If you wrap it right you don’t have to wear anything under it. No I’m not showing you photos. 4. You get two hands back when your baby is tiny and will. not. let. you. put. him. down. (Personal experience, and the EXACT reason I got my first wrap) 3. Carry that baby, lose that baby weight. 2.

How to make my husband fall in love with me

again and again and again. He’d been away on an overnight trip for work that involved some hella long hours and stress in a part of the state not particularly known for its culture nor class. As he was putting away groceries I noticed he was putting away some American Beer*. I gasped in shock. Me: Scout, you were away TOO LONG! What happened to you?! WHY did you buy.. Read More

Courses of Study + Pay it Forward

(First off – can anyone look at my source code and tell me what I need to do to move the “Alex Year One” down so it’s not cut off? I really don’t know what I breathed on to move it, so I don’t even know where to begin hunting and pecking to see what will fix it.) I nabbed a tag from Secret Agent Mama for this one: Rules:..

Haiku Friday

    Blogging in my mind While I should be sleeping How hopeless am I? (Thank you, bow, thank you, never again will I ‘ku, but I thought of this while I was …. yeah… not sleeping.)

HiB recall

FYI folks, doesn’t look to be anything to lose sleep over, but good to know anyway: HiB Vac recall

…. the reason for your sneezin’

So reading Mary Alice’s post reminded me of a verbal faux pas I made once upon a time. I had a friend named Lin, and friend named Chris Payson. Now Lin and Chris were rather quiet, wallflower kind of people. They never caused any scandal or any gossip within the group (unlike the rest of us.)?Ǭ† These friends shocked the socks off us when they unexpectedly hooked up one night.. Read More
