Sometimes I’m cleaning up around the house and I find stuff like this lying around and I’m torn between “Geez, does anyone even clean up after themselves…” and “Wait? What? What even is this?” and sometimes “Are my children brilliant and way more funny and interesting than I am?” and then “Do you think I’m qualified to be a buffet taste tester? How much do … Continue reading File this under: Things found while cleaning the house.
You know when you notice that two celebrities look really similar and then you cannot unsee the similarities? I’ve got a major case of the Time Travel Twinsies right now and I need to get this off my chest so that I can think about something else. Mila Kunis and Valerie Harper circa the 1970s – serious twinsies!! I’ve been binge watching old episodes of … Continue reading Twinsies or Nah? Mila Kunis & Valerie Harper
We’ve been having the world’s weirdest warm snap that I’m not even complaining about. But when it’s 65 degrees in Wisconsin in February, it bears mentioning, you know? Anyway, being t-shirt weather outside has me dreaming of summer when I won’t be looking behind my back for another cold snap. And thinking about summer can lead to thinking about relaxing on an island, or being deserted … Continue reading 5 Things I’d Want On a Desert Island
Today… Outside my window: the wind is blowing through the trees, making the tarp on our patio dance in the breeze (hey that rhymed). It’s been cold lately and the wind hasn’t been helping at all.

This weekend we: had dinner and birthday cake for Dan with friends that we haven’t seen in awhile. It was heavenly and also much fun. We also: did other stuff … Continue reading sweetened condensed daybook: now without pictures!
Today… Outside my window: the weather is pretty mild for the moment.

We’ve got highs predicted in the 50’s for the next couple days which isn’t so … Continue reading Daybook: November 15th
Last night was Bunco night – a true lifesaver these days as we’ve been cooped up sans car more than I like, making us all a bit batty. Mommy was truly, truly in need of a night out without the kids and it was heavenly. We ate junk food, played a fun game, I got to talk to new friends and old – and I … Continue reading Aloha : Mommy Time
Today… Outside my window: it’s another cloudy, cool day. Weather.com tells me it is in the 40’s right now with a high of 55 predicted. Last night we trick or treated in 45 degree weather but when the sun began to set, it got pretty cold. By the time we got home and realized we’d left windows open, I was an absolute (wimpy) Popsicle! Last … Continue reading Daybook: November 1st
I was looking at my 365 project the other day and noticed that we are now more than 300 days into 2010! Time has really flown by for us this year, with our little kiddos getting steadily bigger and life happening a mile a minute! So my Aloha Friday question this week is: What’s the best thing that’s happened so far this year? What are … Continue reading Aloha Friday: best of the year
