I'm on the tail-end of a few days off with the hubby and the kids. It's been really fantastic, restorative, and just all-around wonderful. We made our way over to the Pirate Haus in St. Augustine, FL, just a few hours from home. Great accom... Read more

Okay, the Ross Sisters are amazing. Watch this if you have 5 minutes. If you don't, bookmark it and watch it later. I actually remember seeing this as a young teen while home sick from school one day. It's definitely the sort of thing tha... Read more

Try and contain your excitement. No, really. People will look at you strangely if they see you jumping up and down. I mean, at least until they realize that I'm back! Work has been suffocating and my kids have been sick off and on. The easi... Read more

Yeah, for any of you that read my update regarding my poor fashion choice, please allow me to explain: I put on a favorite shirt. I loved it when I was pregnant, then cut it down to fit my shrinking belly. Its super light cotton, kinda blou... Read more

Good News- I don't have internet cancer!
Monday, February 25, 2013      5 comments

Good news! I don't have internet cancer! Or in my case, macular degeneration! I know, I'm only 34 so it might have been a bit premature... but I've been eaten up with worry for the past little bit. My grandmother (89!) was diagnosed ... Read more

On motherhood and body image
Saturday, February 09, 2013      5 comments

The first major shift in my body image came during my first pregnancy. Nothing up to this point had been able to rival the self-image created by a million subtle (or not so subtle) cultural narratives about what a woman should be, that I had bee... Read more
A quick note to a hill.

Dear Hill, What's up? We've spent some time together over the past 6 months- not enough to be friends, but definitely more than passing acquaintances. I know I haven't been fair to you. I've avoided you, I've cursed you, I've complain... Read more

I've been trying to keep my calories to the bottom of my range for the past few weeks. My end-of-year resolution was to try only having sweets once a day- no mid-day Hershey's kiss, no random cookie as a snack. I still eat dessert every night, b... Read more

I am a skin-flint, penny-pinching, cheap-o. The investment of $46 in a sports bra was something I was hard-pressed to do, despite my ample chest (36D-DD). Instead, I've been doubling up on bargain-priced beauties, one racer-back and the ot... Read more

It took me years to make friends with cardio. We're pretty tight now; I run three to four times a week. I thought I'd conquered my fear of ridicule by strangers. Yesterday was a rare treat. I took a half-day at work, coming in at 1:00. ... Read more
My paternal grandmother told me...

... that if I ran, my uterus would fall out. Thank god she was wrong... about a lot of things. Ran about 2 miles this morning while pushing my 30 pound kid in a stroller and corralling my none-too-bright dog (the smart one is old and h... Read more
