Wait–What Happened to All the Rain?!

Wait–What Happened to All the Rain?!

A couple weeks ago, I was so happy to learn we were expecting a “major rainstorm” in our area (Just those two words are a joke in itself where we live…Wait, is it rainstorm or rain storm?  Whatever, I’m laughing as I type)  We have been needing this rain for a while, considering the official … Continue reading

December Happenings

December Happenings

Inhale.  Exhale. Smile. Repeat. This is my slogan for December.  As I continue to plow my way through the month, I feel like I only have a millisecond to break before I’m onto the next agenda on my To-Do-List Scroll.  When I mentioned “December Happenings” in the title of this post, I mean that December is … Continue reading

I’m still on November Time…

Hi all!  I’ve seriously been lagging on new posts due to a very hectic schedule, so I’m sort of consolidating all my November and beginning of December highlights in one post for now.  And I’ll let the pictures do the talking.  Forgive the less-than-stellar photo quality of my pictures thus far.  Ever since my trusty camera broke … Continue reading

Which One?!

Which One?!

Here’s the sitch:  Hubby’s Annual Holiday Party.  Dilemma:  What do I wear?! About 99% of the time, I live in a wonderfully cozy bubble of casualness.  I cherish every pair of pajamas, every sweatshirt, tee, legging/jean like they are my best friends.  But every now and then there is that 1% that just loves to dress up.  … Continue reading

Vegas For Two, Please?

So, a few days ago, Mr. & Mrs. Jolly Blogger did something we have never done before since we joined the Parenthood Society:  We took a vacation—–without the kids!!!  About a month ago, the Hubs was generously given a free 2-night stay at the Paris Las Vegas Hotel and Casino.  Naturally, my initial thought was how I was … Continue reading

It’s been a while since I posted about the more materialistic side of my life (yes, I do like to have nice things, I’ll admit it!)  :-) A long time ago, I wrote a post about one of my all time favorite shopping sites, Modcloth.   From the moment I first stumbled onto this site I have been hooked.  … Continue reading

A Jolly Blogger Birthday Post

A Jolly Blogger Birthday Post

Hi everyone! How is/was your summer? If you know me by now, you are aware that Summer is definitely NOT my favorite season.  I consider this so ironic because I happen to have been born in the Summer.   I become a big, whiny baby when it comes to anything related to hot weather. BUT!  I … Continue reading

Kindergarten!

Kindergarten!

He did it! My baby made it through his first day of Kindergarten! With NO tears! AND! no tears for his mother either! Shocking! (But only because I spent the night before sobbing into my pillow while Hubby consoled me…I got it out of my system) He is really growing up.  I love this kid! :-)
