Raising Geeks

Growing up, I wanted to have two kids. A boy named Josh and a girl named Mercedes. Josh would naturally be the big man on campus, and when I say that, imagine me saying it the way your grandmother says it when she asks you about school. "How's school, Josh? I assume you're the big man on campus like your father?" Josh's father in this scenario being Dr. Peter Venkman or Jonathon Brandis. Mercedes would be a popular genius/cheerleader. She'd be involved in dance and gymnastics and all … [Read More...]

Like taking candy from a baby…or, like, a super creepy old person.

I've become a touch paranoid. Yesterday I was at my brothers, playing with the puppies, completely disregarding their birthing experience I have since forever mentally blocked from my mind, and he was watching some boy show called Operation Repo.  It's like, where cameras follow the companies who … [Read More...]

Martyr.

I should preface this post with the fact that I feel absolutely horrible for anyone who has to live with me and/or be in a 25 foot radius of me. Even I can't stand me. First off, I am exhausted.  And exhausted is a word I used to toss around a lot, like one time when my husband and I were … [Read More...]

You know what I am sick of?  Every other person on the planet who is pregnant and does not weigh almost 200 lbs.  You women.  The ones who are barely showing, and when you do, it looks like you merely have a nerf ball tucked under your shirt.  The ones who are soo frustrated that they are … [Read More...]

Easily distracted…by tacos.

1.  Yay Lent! First of all, I love that I can pretend Fat Tuesday is completely different than, say, every other day of the year that I eat waaay more than I should, but could care less.  I guess the only real difference is, that on Fat Tuesday, I am doing it for Jesus.  So,  that makes it more … [Read More...]

Outlook so so.

I have been stuck in my glasses for days.  My left eye is either dying or is thisclose to falling out. I googled things like seeping, and painful and yucky as hell...and from what I read, I have a sty.  In my eye. Which makes perfect sense because I am always doing things like storing my … [Read More...]

Oh my God, that Brittany, shameless.

Saturday.  Sabato.  Zaterdag.  Samedi. The day I literally plan to spend doing nothing but eating hot wings and drinking Coke.  All day.  Without any pants on. Because pants just slow you down. Plus, it's snowing.  Again.  And, the only pants that go with snow, are snow pants.  And, they … [Read More...]

I actually had somebody email me for a recipe. Because, apparently, I'm a food blog. So recipes are supposed to be here. *snore* Ok, let's see. Portobello Mushroom and Spinach Penne Pasta.  It's hearty, cheesey and pretty much guarantees you will be licking the casserole dish clean.  … [Read More...]

Ok, seriously...how much longer can a human pregnancy last!?  Please tell me I am glowing, 'cause I am totally glowing, right? So, the other night we went out on a date to a local Mexican restaurant, and at the table next to us was this hot mess of a baby.  Just rice, beans and smooshed chips all … [Read More...]

When there are no words.

Valentines Day.  Done. I awoke to find a card and a single rose shoved into an empty Diet Coke can on the counter. I think the fact that my husband can look me in the eyes and kiss me, even though I totally smell, haven't shaved my armpits in days, and waddle around holding an ice bag to my … [Read More...]

The giveaway you won’t need a safe word for!

First off, how about the new digs?  Pretty hot, huh? Endless thanks to Shauna from Blog & Web Designs by Shauna.  She is amazing, a complete lifesaver, and has the patience of a fucking saint! She is the sole reason I was brave enough to put on my internet big girl panties and make the … [Read More...]
