Your Preppy Name Is… Pomeroy Steele Holden the Fourth But most people know you as Buffy What’s Your Preppy Name? Feel free to refer to me as Buffy in all our correspondence now. As a side note – Alex started crawling on Thursday. It seems to be helping him fall asleep better – last night he was grizzly and fighting sleep till he crawled up on Scout’s chest and fell..

PBK meets Cheapa$$

Nursery decorating part one: Pottery Barn Kids curtains. Bed Bath and Beyond hardware. And I swear ya’lls, I should have taken photos and blogged how effing long it took me to get the thing out of the package. It was hermetically sealed in scissor deflecting plastic bordered by cardboard. It took me longer to get the thing out of the package than it did to attach to the wall. No.. Read More

Philanthropy Thursday

Officially, it was last week – as Mary Alice and Jen planned. And I was actually working on it. Last week. On Thursday. It was even ON my calendar. But I forgot it was Thursday. You know, Mom brain. So, now that it’s Thursday again … I’ve learned how to knit hats, on circular needles. Alex has been sleeping on me for naps (still). I have a ton of old.. Read More

Oh NO they Di’n’t

OMG. Remember the Always post from a while back? The genius letter I wish I would have written? Well, they didn’t learn a flinging flanging thing! There is now a commercial where the pad is on a saddle like a bucking bronco and it’s a country theme and at the end it says “Have a happy period!” What would be better marketing tactics? I’m personally thinking free chocolate with purchase… Read More

So, say I needed to submit 3 writing samples of things I’ve written … would you, by chance, tell me what, if anything, I’ve written that you might recommend I use? And. I’m doing NaNoWriMo AND NaBloPoMo. Have I lost my ever loving mind? Nah, but I’ll bet ya’ll will be reading some novel excerpts 🙂 So today, I’m keeping it short, ‘cuz you’ll be hearing PLENTY from me in.. Read More
