Happy Thanksgiving!

Hullo peeps!

Just dropping in today to wish you and yours a wonderful Thanksgiving! On a serious note, I am crazy thankful for the awesomeness that is my life. I am soooo blessed.

On a slightly less serious note, this article on Rants from Mommyland is hilarious.

Not that I would really know ... the only time I made Thanksgiving dinner was during Grover and I's first year of marriage. I vaguely remember burning ... everything. That's about it.

I think I'll leave the making of all things delicious to the more experienced. My 8 months pregnant self is rather excited about the impending feast, despite the fact I will only be able to eat half a plate before heartburn kicks in. Tums to the rescue!

Princess Polka Dot Turns One

I know this is incredibly delayed, but I figured I should share some photos of Princess Polka Dot's first birthday ...

... considering the fact my family has now banned me from planning birthday parties for the rest of eternity.


I tend to get a bit ... frazzled about things like this. I looooove the decorating/crafting part, but I tend to over do that and under do the rest of the important stuff. Like cleaning. And showering. And feeding my children.

Word Vomit

There are things I do well (uhhh ... pie crust! I can make pie crust!).

And there are things I totally and completely bomb.

Like any sort of sport. And chopping wood. And cake decorating.

And "chatting".

Chatting = pure torture. I would rather be hit in the face with a sledgehammer. It's not that I don't like people. I am just awful at making conversation.

Behold, the seventh circle of hell.
Why? Because my default method of communication is word vomit. Whatever I'm thinking comes straight out my mouth, usually garbled. This means:

Crochet Infinity Scarf {POTM}

Halloooo, peeps!

It's that time again. The weather is getting colder, the snowflakes are falling, hot cocoa sounds delicious (but when does it not?) and I am constantly reminded that I am TERRIBLE at fire starting.

Luckily we can just crochet a scarf to keep us warm, right?

If you are also a terrible lord of the flame, this pattern is for you ... or you could just like scarves. That's okay, too.

September {Snapshots}

September kind of disappeared on us, which was nice because it means I'm one month closer to being not pregnant but also kind of sad because all those minutes will never happen again. Know what I mean?

We did manage to make it to town for Touch-a-truck Day at the fire station ...

Hot Roller Hairpocalypse

G'day, mates!

Let's talk about hair today, shall we?

From 2005 to 2010, I had basically the same hairstyle. I cut it into a bob once, but it was more or less this:

Circa 2008.
I've been making that face every day for the past 5 years.
Then, after having T in 2011 and being attacked by an intense fear of frumpiness, I went crazy. I cut it off. Then I dyed it purple. Then blond. Then brown. Then I cut it WAY off. Then I went back to red. Then ... I don't remember what happened because I got pregnant with G and my brain flew out the window.

It hasn't returned yet, in case you were wondering. I don't remember the majority of 2012.

10 Wacky Vintage Ads

Hola peeps!

I was looking for some wall art for the freshly painted (finally) bathroom when I ran across these. They made me giggle, so I thought I'd pass along the funny/creepy weirdness.

Dr. Batty is aptly named.
