Sorry I’m Not Home Right Now I’m Walking in a Spider Web

  Here’s the deal. There is only one thing worse than being in the presence of a giant spider and that’s walking into its web first. Gah. More than anything in the entire world, I hate spiders. It is half the reason I got married. So I wouldn’t have to kill them. Only thing is, I married someone who is […]

Marathon Training Video #1 (Complete with Dance Out)

  Welcome to my first video post for my training for the Miami ING Marathon sponsored by Girlz N Gear! It’s short and sweet and gets sort of into the details and there’s a surprise ending. I’m working on perfecting the “Dance Out.” Perhaps by the time I run the marathon I will have. Anyway, it’s only a minute long, […]

Don’t Mind Me!

I’m doing some blog housekeeping today so you might see that it’s a little on the messy side. It’s one thing when you get to clean up and organize within the confines of your own home. It’s a whole nother story when your cleaning and organizing is out in the open for everyone lookin in and seeing your bidniz. You can […]

Courage to Tri

So here I sit, basking in the after-glow of the post-race. This is the first triathlon I’ve done since last November so it’s been a while. It’s been hard for me to train since I’ve gone back to work a year and a half ago. I spent most of last year working weekends, and this year, I’ve spent most of […]

Vacations.

The hardest part about going on vacation, besides the planning of the vacation, is actually getting there. Because it’s not possible for us to just pack up and go, we have to prepare for the vacation for at least a week in advance before the vacation (possibly more). We have to “run errands” to “get ready for vacation” and buy […]

The Preschool Pickup. A (short) Documentary.

If you’re wondering how long it takes to pick up a 6 year old from a preschool camp, it’s 8 years. It takes 8 years. This is why, with small children, it’s impossible to travel anywhere in a timely manner. Which is fine. I’ll be on time to something in about 6-8 more years. (Give or take a few years.) […]

Its Cinco de Mayo! My yearly toast to life.

Two years today. #Cansuhfree! And a much shorter post than last year. (More proof that time flies.) As of February I’m on 6 month appointments instead of every 3. I have parted ways with all baby clothes. (Adoption still not off the table.) I’m fully healed and off to celebrate with one of these when my husband picks me up […]

Hodgepodge and Potpourri and piles of… er, STUFF.

You guys. Ohmigod I can’t even describe to you to the mishmash hodgepodge and potpourri of the both awful and wonderful that has been the past few weeks. Unfortunately, that also means l can’t even go into specifics on some of it (which you know is killing me, as the over sharer that I am!) Except to say that among […]

Review: Mega Bloks Hot Wheels & Giveaway!

To know my kids is to know they love to build things. We’ve blockedandbuilded all our lives (well not mine, theirs, but I have found those instruction manuals are a lot easier to read than initially thought!) Recently, we got a chance to try out the Mega Bloks Hot Wheels Speedsters (!!!!) which are basically blocks AND CARS in one combo platter […]

Tiny Sports Update, our newfound BMX addiction. And by “me” I mean my 7 year old’s.

In the last episode of tiny sports reports, I believe we were in baseball. This was over a year ago actually so it’s been a while since we’ve discussed the topic of tiny sports. As you may or may not remember, we did the standard tiny soccer, then tried tee ball and baseball, and both were met with lackluster enthusiasm, […]

My Ideal Hours Would Be…

My Ideal Hours Would Be… by Christie O. My ideal hours would be… Spent with a beer and a husband in a dark bar with our favorite music, lost in each other. Laughing. After a long, hard, busy, crazy, week. After 8 p.m. on a Friday night or whenever someone is available to watch the kids, really, I’ll take it. […]

Riding bikes is AWESOME.

I don’t know what it is about riding bikes that I love so much, I think it dates back to being on my pink huffy for my hours upon hours of kid freedom (“Come home when the lights come on!”) I pretty much met my (still to this day) best friend while I was exploring my new neighborhood on a […]
