It’s that time of year again, when I get to abandon my children with my husband and escape to a place where other women (thousands of them) all come together in the name of blogging and overall geekiness, dressed up with fancy parties and glitter.

ALREADY? I know, I know, but hear me out. It’s less than 6 months away. My baby is closer to turning one than to the day she was born. Crazy. Just crazy. (OH! And as of 3 hours ago, she has her first tooth!) And so, since the last half of the year is most […]

“I’ll get the house organized again eventually. We’ll get our closet cleaned out and those maternity clothes packed away soon. I’ll have time to sit down and plan out my schedule one of these days. One of these days I’ll wake up and won’t feel like I’m treading water the rest of the day. One […]
