So…a new pretty blog!

Well, I think so at least! You’ll notice you’ve been redirected to my new blog AND my new domain –! HOW EXCITING!

I left blogger because I was having issues with things displaying incorrectly, and also I’m a graphic designer. WordPress is much friendlier for me and my nerdiness.

Pretty please, update your bookmarks one last time, resubscribe via my new rss feed – do everything you need to do to stay up to date!

And if you were kind enough to drop my badge on your blog – I have an updated one available on the right.

(and all you folks who were having problems with the right side of my blog before…I FINALLY SAW IT. On my mother’s computer. It was horrible. I hope with WordPress to never have that issue again.)

SO, WELCOME! I’m so excited about being on my own domain and having this new clean layout. I still have some housekeeping to do (updating links within the blog, retagging posts, etc), but I’m pretty happy with it so far. Let me know what you think!

Dear Stella…

What was it about the worst clothing item to “come back into style…”


I used to respect you. And now, Ms McCartney? I LOATHE YOU.

5 months.

Doode. Abby. You’re FIVE MONTHS OLD TODAY. You eat rice cereal. You’re teething. You’re almost sitting up on your own. In fact, you might be able to already but I’m too busy waiting for you to tip over with my hands at the ready at all times.

Grandma and Grandpa Bee were visiting this weekend, and we celebrated your birthday month-day…thing…by making steak and watching The Hangover. Okay, so not entirely baby friendly activities, but we’d already watched Yo Gabba Gabba earlier in the evening and you got a bath, so…it all evens out.

I just can’t believe how big you’re getting. I am cherishing every minute of every day we spend together because I seriously feel like I’m going to wake up some morning and you’re going to be standing in your crib yelling “MA! GET ME A BOTTLE ALREADY! CHRIST ON A CRACKER!” and then I’ll be all “WHAT HAPPENED TO THE PAST YEAR. And say the magic word. ”

I love you baby sweets.

A summary of numbers.

Days until I have a rock n’ roll seizure in Las Vegas: 23

Days until the Twins home opener: 18

Tooth buds Abby had as of yesterday: 3 or 4

Days until I have a 5 month old on my hands: 2

Amount of cancer found in my mother-in-law: 0

It’s been a bit of a whirlwind the past few days. I’m getting more and more involved at work, Abby’s teething while my mother watches her for 8 hours a day for the first time, and my mother in law is still in recovery after her brain surgery.

Tomorrow I’m taking the day off to spend with my mom and Abbers, and maybe get some girl time in (aka SHOPPING).

Saturday is Abby’s big 5 month-day…so look for a cute new picture of her in one of her new outfits courtesy of grandma and her love of Carter’s outlet (conveniently located FIVE MINUTES from her home).

A MIL update.

The hubs’ mom made it through the surgery, which ended up being more like 10 hours rather than 6, but they got all of the stubborn tumor out. I haven’t been able to visit her yet, but I think Abby and I will be going up this evening after the hubs gets off of work.

Thank you everyone for the thoughts and prayers!
