Happy Blogiversary to Me!

Today is my four year blogiversary!!!!!! *throws confetti* *cuts the cake* That’s right – four years ago today, I started this blog. It was just a wee little blog over on Blogger, started simply as a way to keep a visual record of my growing family (because I’m crap at keeping up with the baby [Read On]

My Cybher Takeaway

This past weekend, the Hubs let me escape to London (and escape I did, on the 10:30 am train) to attend Cybher, an inaugural event for female bloggers. (There were a few fellows wandering around…)  It was a great opportunity to put faces to the Twitter names I’ve been chatting away with (some of the [Read On]

Dusting off the Cobwebs

One of the prompts on this past week’s Writer’s Workshop was: “What have you been too busy to pay attention to?” This was one that I couldn’t pass by. This one, dear friends, will write itself. The answer to this (aside from my ever expanding muffin-top) is: my blog. *sniffs* I’m slightly mortified that the [Read On]

Cybher Meet and Greet

This past summer I went to Cybermummy – my first ever blog conference, and it was a fantastic experience. I took home ideas for my blog, including ways to improve my photography and vlogging, and I had the opportunity put faces to so many fellow bloggers and Twitterers. I am very excited to be going [Read On]

Lists and Goals and Randomness

  Isn’t she the cutest stinkin’ thing you ever saw? Where was I??? * * * I like lists. Lists are good. To-do lists? LOVE them. I love the feeling when I can check things off. Completion. Satisfaction. Success. Do you know what I don’t like? Resolutions – I rarely keep them, and then I [Read On]

Bring on the New Year!

I had the best of intentions to write a round up of 2011, but really? I was off at Center Parcs, having fun with my family, and so New Years Eve day had me tied up with unpacking, sorting out the dog from the kennel, laundry…you know where this is headed…   I ran out [Read On]

Where I’m From

I am from pictures colored in a notebook, books and a flashlight under the sheets, from milk and carefully split Oreos and tents made from blankets under the dining room table. I am from the “west side”, dinners in the screened-in porch, root beer floats at the A&W drive in and the summer rain pounding [Read On]

This Really Is Leading Somewhere…

Tonight the Hubs looked up from his laptop and commented something (because I was reading and not really hearing him) to the effect of “not much to say? You haven’t posted in a while.” Rub it in, man.  I confess, I have a writer’s block of sorts. I have loads of posts in the Draft [Read On]

My Cybermummy 11 Roundup (or how I got my groove back)

On Sunday night, I cleaned dog poo off of my son’s Crocs. It was a brutal return to reality for me, having just stepped off a train from London where I had spent the weekend attending Cybermummy 11. To say it was overwhelming was an understatement: with over 400 fellow bloggers in attendance, this tongue-tied [Read On]

Where the Magic Happens and other Ramblings

I swore I wouldn’t do it again, and here I am. Vlogging. Do you know why I struggle with it? Beyond the fact that I hate the sound of my voice on video? I hate the eye-roll and slightly bemused look that the Hubs will give me after he views this post. His last comment [Read On]
