Weekend Ramblings

Summer dress?  Check. Gradual Self-tan lotion?  Check. (You should see the before on these legs.) Freeze as soon as the sun goes down?  CheckCheckCheckCheckCheck Sooooo....I added in a lightweight trench/anorak AND layered it over a cozy grandpa cardi.  The jacket alone isn't enough to keep me warm (especially in a little cotton summer dress), but the combo is perfect.   And leopard pumps since...
So I have this going-out uniform of sorts.  Disappointingly, it involves a t-shirt.  I keep meaning to find some fabulous top - something silky, pretty, patterned, whatever....but I seem to have this mental block where silky shirts are involved and instead, a closet full of cotton and wool. Which is why I find myself, most Friday nights, clad only in...

Weekend. Plans?

I guarantee that most of my weekend at home will be spent watching the Bird Man hatch, over and over and over again. "Mommy, 'tend I a wed birwd and you are wed mommy birwd and daddy is wed daddy birwd and I in egg' and he buries himself in pillows and goes through this gloriously dramatic 'hatching' process.  Once's...

Weekend WOOT WOOT

I'm getting the Spring shopping bug.  It's like the sun shows its face for one tiiiny second, and I immediately want to bust out a floral t-shirt (specifically this one - Lands' End - who knew?).  To appease the shopping beast, I'll be coming out with some fun Spring shopping posts next week. In reality, I seem to be wearing...

Happy, Happy Weekend

  More snow out East, you say?  Hold tight, because winter's not over? Well.  As we speak, I'm watching the sun come up over the Emerald Coast in Gulf Shores, AL.  We've been here all week, visiting my parents.  I don't usually disappear from the blog without a word, but right before we left there was a perfect storm of sick...

Weekend Olympics!!

Opening Ceremonies for the Winter Olympics starts tonight!  (Technically, they're over, but being aired--whatever. Nobody cares.)  In any case - I'm excited. But, per usual, I'm just realizing this now.  This morning I was all, "The Olympics are on tonight??  Really?  THE REAL OLYMPICS???"  and am now trying to throw together a fun little family party for the four of...
Raines looked over my shoulder as I was writing this.  "Wow, Mom!  That picture's of Christmas Eve!" he said reverently. Indeed.  This pic was taken by my mom last Christmas.  Not Christmas Eve, but, you know, close enough.  I'm currently in Michigan, sitting in front of the fire, curled up with my laptop, coffee, and chocolate.  Not a bad way...

It’s Movember!

Happy Movember!   (And yes, Mike is using a chunk of my fallen-out hair.)   Mike D. Making me giggle with wildly inappropriate jokes since 1995. Go get your guys checked out, Mamas.  We're not the only ones needed by our kids.   Some fun stuff: I was literally working on a shopping-enabler post of my favorite flannel shirts...when Who What Wear Daily published...

Friday, Friday

What are you guys up to this weekend?  We'll be going to R's soccer game (the cute factor in under-6 soccer is unbelievably high)...and probably do a little outing of some sort.  My next chemo is Wednesday already, so this is my weekend to live it up. Germantown Ave Parents put together a bucket list of 10 Ways to Get...

Friday!

Well, Mamas.  I made it.  I'm more than a week past my first chemo treatment, and tomorrow marks the day that all major side-effects should abate.  (Theoretically, of course.)  Happy, happy Friday.   I feel like I've earned the weekend.  Chemo sucks.  I've been writing quite a bit over on my personal blog, so if you want any of the gory...
