California Dreaming: A Totally Awesome Pictorial

photo (8)

Ever wish you could escape from it all? Run off to Southern California, if only for a day or two. Take in the sun and the surf and forget all your winter troubles. That’s exactly what I got to do last week. It was an amazing whirlwind trip as part of my role in TWIN […]

Shopping with a Keen Eye for the Ridiculous

outdated fashion eyewear

I love shopping. And I also get a pretty big kick out of ridiculous things. I actually have a whole folder on my iPhone for apps I deem “Ridiculous” (iFart being one of them). But when you combine shopping and ridiculousness, it can be quite entertaining. On Monday, I went to Sears for the afternoon. […]

That Darn Cat

Cats. You either love ‘em or your hate ‘em. Personally, I love them but I bet you already knew that. And I know I’m far from alone. I actually had the good fortune of speaking at BlogPaws this summer. It’s a conference designed specifically for pet bloggers. If you aren’t part of that community, I’m […]

No one knows messy like I know messy

Most people think I’m a lovely housekeeper. These are my friends in “real” life and my family. They are the ones that visit for the holidays or stopover for a little get together. According to them, “my house always looks spotless.” I have a secret to confess. It’s because I clean my arse off before […]

My Life In Review

A day at the fair made for a memorable Sunday.

Some of you followed along last week as I devoted five whole days to every photographically mundane aspect of my life. What surprised me the most is people actually came and looked. And left comments! There was a link up every day with all of the other participants and while I couldn’t even get to […]

A Week in My Life: Black Friday

friday1

I actually used to think Black Friday was a bad thing. I mean, the color black implies evil and sinister, doesn’t it? Apparently not. If you’re “in the black,” you’re making money. If you’re “in the red,” you ain’t doing so good. But Red Friday probably would have made much sense to you. So let’s […]

A Week in My Life: This Must Be Thursday

Adventuroo-WIML-thursday

Quick – tell me where I got the post for my title from (the Thursday part). It’s not really relevant. I’d just like to know if it’s familiar to anyone. I’m back for my fourth installment of Week in My Life brought to you by @adventuroo and @thislife. It’s fun and exhausting and eye-opening all […]

A Week in My Life: On a Wednesday

Adventuroo-WIML-wednesday

Prepare to be STUNNED! AMAZED! STUPEFIED!! …on someone else’s blog. I have to admit that my day wasn’t anything spectacular. It was just a casual Wednesday. My husband was gone all day and Evan was off to his sitter’s house for the day. A full day. All to myself. It’s a workday, I tell myself. […]

A Week in My Life: I’ll Take Tuesday for $500, Alex

Adventuroo-WIML-tuesday

What is the second day of the work week? Correct! Sorry. Just a little Jeopardy fun there. Turns out there aren’t really any famous songs about Tuesday. Or quotes. Or interesting trivia. It’s just a day. But at least I did a few more things on Tuesday than Monday. So Tuesday is definitely more flattering. […]

A Week in My Life: Monday, Monday

Adventuroo-WIML-monday

It’s Tuesday, I know. But I need to post on Tuesday about my Monday. I’m participating in @Adventuroo’s fun project called “Week in My Life.” Melissa posts all the details over on her blog and anyone can join up for any day for for the whole week. I must confess, I’m partially doing it because […]

A photo without a caption is like coffee without cream

I want you to entertain me today. I was pouring over some pictures last night as I was trying to find the right “family picture” for my son to take to preschool next week. Some project they are going to work on. I’m assuming it’s about families. (And yes, I am a little giddy that […]
