Fun

real neat blog!

woosh. it has been a heck of an evening. i have a lot of things about the day rolling through my mind to write about  — some realizations, some good times and maybe a belated Wine Wednesday. but for now, Spy just left in a whirlwind of activity, including Miss Girl and me having road […]

one lovely blog!

and i thought i wouldn’t have anything to write about once i got done with all my France posts. ha! thanks to the lovely K. Leighann over at My Road to Motherhood, i’m psyched to have some fodder for a couple posts and of course am competely flattered to have been nominated for the One […]

au revoir, y’all!

in exactly 12 hours, i’ll be on a plane to Paris for our French Spring Break. i can hardly believe we’ve been talking about and planning this trip for nearly 4 months, now! and i can hardly believe the ton of merde that still needs to happen in the next 12 hours to get us there. ugh. […]

weekend scenes

woo-hoo! we survived, y’all. this was the single busiest weekend we’ve endured enjoyed since i don’t know when! i’m currently relishing a Sunday night moment of calm before it all starts again. before we finally leave for France on Friday night, Spy and i will see our beloved Hartsfield-Jackson just about more than we will […]

happy National Chaos & Destruction Day!

so, according to Facebook, it is National Puppy Day. apparently Hallmark has been replaced in the business of creating non-holiday holidays for people to get in a tizzy about now that we have Facebook. sheesh. when i mentioned the “holiday” to Spy this morning, he asked if every day wasn’t National Puppy Day. i mean, […]

Friday favorites: guilty pleasures

i have to write a separate, tragic post about how we are like 90% through the school year and this schedule has still not gotten comfortable for me — or pretty much anyone else in the house. these early mornings are ridiculous, y’all. it’s felt like another rough week of rushing around, always being late […]

Monday, y’all.

(photo: grumpycats.com) lord, it’s about to be a week. i’m basically double booked at work with a pitch due Friday and a big client presentation due next Tuesday. in between that insanity, i get to spend most of the weekend single-mommying while Spy heads up to Richmond to visit his parents. part of me wishes […]

rise. rock it. repeat.

it’s Groundhog Day, y’all. i’m writing this early, but no matter what happens this morning, you know there’s gonna be 6 more weeks of winter, right? that is always the way. in Atlanta, we’re looking at some solid 50-ish temps and sun for a while. woo-hoo! but that doesn’t mean it won’t be Snowmageddon again […]

Friday favorites

yay! it’s a big Friday around here: Miss Girl makes her acting debut this afternoon in a video we’re shooting for a client (free talent is good talent on this budget). i can’t wait to see how she does pretending to make popcorn and watch a movie with her fake family. speaking of fake families, i […]

the Christmas party

i cannot even believe it is only 10 days ’til Christmas, y’all! i thought i had everything under control. now i’m not so sure. but aside from that minor detail of oh, you know, presents, i have hit all my major milestones, including the infamous Woodward Holiday Open House. this party is so legendary, i […]

gingerbread friends

lord. Miss Girl talked me into buying this gingerbread cookie kit at Michael’s last weekend. i knew it was bad news,  but i did it anyway. obvs. because i’m the best/worst mom in the world. it came with 8 pre-baked cookies, 2 colors of fondant, a mess of white icing and decorative candies. okay, let’s […]

’tis the season for mailmen

i’m such a nerd. i well up when they play the Clydesdales ads on the Super Bowl. i never change the channel during commercial breaks because i might miss something interesting. i can get caught up in a 30-second story like it’s a feature film. i guess that’s why i went into advertising. blame it on […]

NaBloPoMo day 20: sparkling or still?

yeesh. last night was late. after my work party, there was a lengthy gabfest with Spy, who’d just gotten back from a quick trip. and there was a lot of wine. and well, it all was completely fantastic until today when morning arrived way too early. so i headed over to The Daily Post  in […]

NaBloPoMo day 18: feelin’ the love

each morning when i wake up, pretty much the first thing i do (after peeling the cat off my head) is look at my phone to see what has happened overnight and what my schedule is for the day. this morning, i was surprised to find a sweet little piece of news that truly warmed my […]
