Weekend Ramblings

Friday Thoughts….

Never have I seen so much rain, Mamas.  With inexplicably 80+ degree temps.  We're all...uh...steaming?  Is that the right cooking method? Anyway, the best part about the Philly mainline is that the kiddos are free to play in the (relatively) clean street gutters.  Cause this would ne-eh-eh-ever happened downtown Denver:   I know you are wondering about the helmet.  (Or no one...

August Already!?

As you may have already gleaned, Mamas, summer is much savored here at ANMJ, and as such, it is with great gravity that I now report to you this horrifying news: summer has nearly reached its apex and August has commenced, marking the heart-wrenching transition to <gah!>: fall.  Fortunately, kickin' boots, fabulous layers and cozy sweaters will compensate for...
  Oh Mamas.  We have been having so much fun.  There's just something ah-mazing about summer.  Perhaps it's the lack of responsibility, or just the sense that these unscheduled days are fleeting...but we've been thoroughly enjoying our days.  The downside?  Bedtime is 11PM.  11PM!!!  IknowIknowIknow!  In my defense, we're so far north (U.P. what-what) that the sun doesn't set until...

Vacation Withdrawal

Oh how looooong the week back from vacation can seem!  We had a dynamite trip to Dave’s home state of Michigan, and it’s hard to get back in the groove after having so much relaxation and entertainment wrapped up into 10 days—what with older cousins entertaining our kids non-stop, jumping off of boats into crystalline lakes, running down mind-blowingly...

TGI Summer!

I love summer for so many reasons.  Sunshine.  Pool time.  Free time (theoretically).  Crazy sales.  I say theoretically because we’re putting our house on the market and getting it ready with three babes ages four-and-under in tow has been. . . fun?  Interesting?  We couldn’t have done any of it without help from Mimi, so I must shout out a...

Weekend Fun?

I own this magnet:   In related news, by the time you read this, I will be camping.  Gack!  No....it should be fun.  I think that's the thing with camping...the "should be" part.  We're camping in Assateague Island, hoping to see some wild ponies.  (Seriously:  Wild. Ponies.)  We have headlamps and everything so we're big-time campers now.  HUGE.  I'll be posting...
Happy start of summer, Mamas!!  As most of you know....M and I get rather lazy over the summer.  Like...maybe we'll post, maybe we won't...kind of lazy.  But, you know, we will.  From time-to-time.  Or perhaps all in a bunch, if we're feeling inspired. No rules, Mamas.  No rules in the summertime. After all of my self-proclaimed expertise on flying alone with...

Moms positively dominated the 2011 Bloggie Awards.  Do you know what this means!?  Mamas are going mainstream.  Social media has given moms a seat at the table.  We can work and juggle babies and drive minivans (or not) and also be a powerful, loud voice for change, and not just in the aisles of Target.
