I've been married to Andy for 10 years. If there is anything I learned from last year, our anniversaries come and go here with little pomp and circumstance. And we like it that way, because we're tired and always forget to grab cheesy cards from the grocery store the night before. But, I would be remiss if I didn't at least mention the milestone. My parents were also high school sweethearts that married young, and it makes me proud that we've not only managed to stay together, but also … [Read More...]

That will bring us back to doe…oh, oh, oh.

It just hit me I am going to have three kids. I was in the bathroom, totally hating myself for the spicy chicken sandwich I picked up from Wendys and practicing some none hideous pushing the baby out faces in the mirror with the door locked, and the boys were literally trying to break the door … [Read More...]

Holidays suck. When you can't drink. And you spend the whole time running after your kids. So they don't break something (an urn). Or lose something (heart medication/erection pills). Or die (nosehair clippers in the socket). So, I spend the day all hot and sweaty. Repeating 20 … [Read More...]

I have been pregnant three times. I can't really say I've glowed through any of them. In fact, I have no knocked up pictures from round one, and since I was carrying the weight of dos pregnancies the second time around, I have zip from that experience either. The only documented proof I … [Read More...]

So, I know why you are all here. I'm like a time bomb. Did she pop? Is she live vlogging the birth? Will she poop on the table? And the truth is, no.  I didn't pop...yet.  I am not vlogging the birth, as I can in no way verify what the fuck things even look like down there anymore.  … [Read More...]

Hot dog hands and skinny jeans

Why can't we all wear elastic waist maternity pants, like, all the time? How can everyone not be on board with this?

Thank you E! and THS Investigates: Spring Break, for further solidifying in my mind why my kids will never, ever go on spring break of any kind, anywhere. Boobs and booze and whipped cream...which is how I remember Spring Break in the old days. Now it's all date rape drugs, hood piercings and … [Read More...]

Rainbow sherbet makes me smile.

It's funny where you can have your find Jesus moment. For me, it was sitting on the toilet in my OB's office with piss on my hands. But, it was my own piss...so not entirely disgusting. It is just getting increasingly hard for me to catch things in a cup. Anyways. I am sitting on the … [Read More...]

Even I know I suck.

Lost looks stupid. I've never liked coffee or tea. Angelina Jolie annoys me. I hate peanuts. I get bored laying out in the sun. Do I suck yet? Cats are the devil. OMG I know, right.  Who hates cats? People who spit on babies and punch old people, that's who. And these … [Read More...]
