Eat This, Failure

Hi. Hello. It's me, the marketer who doesn't write in her own blog. It's something I think about just about every day, of course. I start the day with good intentions, and other things get in the way. Mostly myself. The last six and a half months have rocked me to my...

The hierarchy of things in our house

Or: How on earth do Mommybloggers get anything done? As I type this, it's 8:20am. Which means that at any second, Grayson could wake up for the morning, and I have to start his day. This isn't a bad thing, as I'm thoroughly enjoying being a mother. However, since his...

Adjustments all around

Having a baby is life-altering change = Giant Understatement. I think I've been struggling a little with the baby blues, or a mild, mild case of postpartum depression. It's difficult for me to even admit, because I feel like new moms are made to feel guilty about...

I have a little problem.

I'm going a little apey. Only 40 days until Christmas, people. I don't think I'll turn into one of those crazed shoppers because I already have half my gift list figured out. The gifts aren't stressing me out at all, actually. What I'm most looking forward to is......

I just couldn’t help myself

I'm not a cat person. Don't get me wrong, I like them OK, but usually they make me sneeze and I'm not particularly fond of how feisty they can be. I'm much more used to the "you - sit!" mentality with dogs. Point being, I don't really think of the cats of our house as...
