It’s feeling like a whirlwind around here – how could it possibly be Friday already? Oh I know what’s happening, too much prep for Alt Summit. You know, like I currently have $800 worth of clothing in my Anthropologie online shopping cart. (no, I’m not getting all of it, or perhaps any of it). But […]
Do you ever imagine where all your organs are? This is exactly how I imagined my insides to look: nice and clean and organized. With labels. Female Anatomy Print (there’s a male version too, for your boys) thanks to Raymond Biesinger.
Ok, so really all I want to talk about is prepping for Alt Summit. But since I know that’s a really boring topic unless you’re A) a blogger, B) going to Alt or have been to Alt, and C) know me well enough to care, I’m trying to reign it all in. Though I do […]
As usual, I thought I was ready for Christmas, and then it hits me with the freezing surprise of a speeding snowball! Oh my goodness, the number of things I’d like to get done between now and Tuesday is, um, mind-numbing. But all of it is fun holiday stuff, so I’m working hard to find […]
We’ve moved from the “Oh it’s the Christmas Season La-de-da” phase to the “Oh crap it’s Christmas in 11 days and I am NOT READY” phase. Yep, it hit me yesterday that there’s just a zillion and one things to do between now and then. And the mother of all colds has taken up lodging in […]
This week was a week of firsts: the first big snowfall that’s going to stick around, the first day of single-degree temps (Brrrrr!), and my first cold. So, in honor of the cold, I’m going to give in to the constant coughing and let this week’s top links speak for themselves. Ugh. Round about the […]
We went to Birdie’s Montessori school yesterday for one of their Parent-child nights. It’s this amazing chance for kids to show their families exactly what it is they do all day long in that strange-looking Montessori room. Seeing Birdie bursting with confidence, chatting with her peers, and taking charge of her “work” in the room […]
I used to be one of those people who thought we needed one holiday at a time. Halloween – without Christmas. Then Thanksgiving – without Christmas. But I have to tell you. As I get older time moves faster. In fact, it moves waaaay too fast. Plus, I absolutely love Christmas. The other holidays are […]
I’m in the mood for an adventure today, and riding on the hilly back of a deer while masquerading as a bunny sounds just fine. See all the wonders from Joutomaa, and thanks to Little Scandinavian for the find.
November is the sneakiest month ever. It just hides behind Halloween and lies in wait. Suddenly, shazam, and here we are! I hope you all had a wonderful Halloween. My favorite moment, aside from Birdie’s fabulous costume, was handing out candy to a line of 15 kids at my door. I’m not sure when our […]
