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...]

Signs of the Apocalypse.

Oh man. I should have known I was in for a bad run when Tatiana Del Toro made it into the Top 36 last night, a blur of fuchsia lipstick, runny mascara, a hyena laugh, and sausage arms. Plus, I noticed that my stairs have started creaking every time I ran up them yesterday. Big fat cow? … [Read More...]

And enough.

In March of 2005, I lost one of my dearest friends. My cooking buddy. My business partner. A girl who stood up for me on my wedding day, and spent the night before stuffed into bed with me as we giggled about weddings and babies and boys. She was an artist, a singer, and my brother's fiance. She … [Read More...]

Will birth for food…or like, something else totally cool.

Four days since my last post? Yikes. I was just skimming someone else's blog roll (because you can tell tons about a person from the shit on her blogroll), and there I was, at the bottom, last post, 4 long ass days ago. But, in my defense, I have been super busy doing grown up stuff...and by grown … [Read More...]

Sometimes life only figuratively stinks. This is not one of those times.

I have a love/hate relationship with karma. On one hand, I am all about it rearing it's ugly fist when this old lady took the last Expectant Mother parking spot in front of Babies R Us the other day, and I was all, what the crap, you are old, not pregnant! Karma, you better go after this selfish … [Read More...]

My hips don’t lie.

I don't know what my problem is. I'm pregnant. How is that I keep forgetting that when I go to do super important things like buy beer or kicking the ass of the lady in the make up aisle at Target for completely cock-blocking the mascara section. It is absolutely annoying, because the only make … [Read More...]
