Too Many Kisses!

Some people really, really like Valentines Day:


And for some people, it’s just too much:


Hope you had a great one … no matter which side you happen to fall!


* The nephew, brought to you by the impromptu photoshoots new parents (who am I kidding, we All)  love so dearly.

The Quest for the Littles

To follow-up on the babies post from a few days ago…

Yes, we want to have children. We are planning to wait for a couple of years, but the timeline is variable, so who knows?

But … there are things that just make me want to grab husband and say “Give me a baby! Now!”, while my ovaries explode. You know how it goes.

For example:

– Holding my 10 day old nephew, and hearing comments (from family) like “Oh, he looks just like you!” *



– Listening to the radio and hearing the following:

Thanks to you, a woman will get the chance to feel the kick of a tiny foot under her ribs. Thank to you, a woman will have to shop for pants with an elastic waistband … and be happy about it…

It was a radio spot for egg donation. GAH. And yes, I started sobbing.


– Reading the morning’s blog posts and coming across this:

Excuse me while I go dissolve into a puddle.

What, if anything, does this to you?


* He really did look like me, in his earliest days. Mostly because he looked like my dad, and so do I. Now, though, he’s clearly not mine. Interesting how that worked out.

** That’s the only word that came to mind when I saw that. Button. In a squealy voice, naturally.

Breaking for Smiles

This has been a tough week. Family drama, work drama, on and on. Yick.

So today, a treat. The little man* is 5 months old now. (How’d that happen?!) And just a complete ball of fun:


Apparently that first one was taken when he saw his mom walk into the room. Little heartbreaker.

Have a great weekend guys.


*My nephew.

Lately, I’ve been EXHAUSTED. I’m not quite sure why, but I can’t seem to shake it, no matter how early I get to bed, or how many naps I take.

So, today … while my brain takes a breather … have some photos of the ever-cuter nephew. You know you’ve missed him.

Time Out

So, over the past two days I’ve tried to write about this BIG IMPORTANT (to me, anyway) THING.

And then a little thing called WORK got in the way. Pssh. Who needs that? Gettin’ in the middle of my blogging time… I say we get rid of it.

Until we can get that sorted out, I bring you a list of things floating around in my head:


1. I may be moving buildings. For work, not home. It’s the nature of property management.

      In the “con” column we have: I really like this building. I have made friends with my tenants. 
      I work all of a block from the husband. I have free parking in downtown. It would be my own 

      In the “plus” column we have: GREAT location, just off the metro. More exposure within the
      company. It would be my own building. Could still meet the husband for lunch (hello Bikeshare!).

Either way, things should be good. I’m kinda hoping for the move, though. Word could come at any moment. Which means I should really get all my ducks in a row.

2. I got my ticket to YAY New York! Now, to get the sparkle dress. NYC girls … I’m bringing a friend who’s in the throes of wedding planning (and lives in Astoria) for you to meet. Adopt her, please?

3. Speaking of NYC … I’ll be there next weekend. Planning on seeing Hitgirls (a new musical staring one of my good friends!) on Saturday at 9pm … who’s with me? Tickets are $18, $16 if you’ve got a student ID.

4. Miss Lauren (Mrs. Lauren?) got back from her honeymoon and has started posting about it! Go give her love and ogle her hawtness in the fancy polka dot bathing suit. Seriously. do it now.

5. I ordered stamps for the thank you notes. I’m DETERMINED to get them out before our anniversary. DETERMINED. Hopefully stamped envelopes staring me in the face will be enough kick in the butt.

6. Speaking of our anniversary … I. CAN’T. WAIT. for our trip. It’s just 3 days, but it’ll be so, so nice. We’re escaping the city and going here. I can’t wait to meet the dog. =)


I could go on like this all day. So, I’ll leave you with a couple new photos of the nephew.


The kid just keeps getting cuter every day!
