party 'til the babes go to bed!

Ultimate Blog Party 2009
Welcome! If you're visiting from the Ultimate Blog Party, I'm happy to meet you! If you're a regular, I'm happy to see you again! Pull up a blog post! Hang out for a while! Cupcake while you're here?












I am a (former) lawyer who fled the law firm life to stay at home with my two kids (23 months apart) and live the glamorous life. Okay, not so glamorous, really, but we do have fun.

My son, Gabriel, is a little over 2. He's a bit of a lunatic, but he makes us laugh so we keep him around.












My daughter, Josie, just turned 3 months old. I write quite a bit about the stresses joys of life with a newborn these days. We're just now exiting the haze of sleepless nights and colicky screams and entering the world of smiles and naps. We're probably going to keep her too.












My husband, Josh, and I met waaayyy back during our college years and we've been driving each other crazy ever since. There are a lot of days (especially these days) when he is the only thing keeping me sane.












We also have two dogs, Tango and Murray, who used to feature prominently on this blog. Unfortunately for them, these days they are more often the subject of complaining on my part. Despite that, they really are very sweet and I'm sure one day my patience will come back. I hope.













So... That's the whole family! Nice to meet you! Feel free to poke around! Ignore the goldfish crackers on the floor and the pile of laundry on the couch. I hope to see you around sometime!

My house is the same way. Goldfish crumbs all over the house AND car, and clean laundry just needing some folding on every clean surface I can stash it! (Until it's worn so I dont have to fold it and put it away, LOL)

I'm a mom of 3 ages 8, 11 and 12. Lucky for them, we decided to keep them...all of them...What were we thinking?! We also have two little ankle biters, a rat terrier and a min-pin. If you asked my hubby, he'd tell you their days are numbered, but I've decided we'll keep them around a little longer. You know, to eat up all the goldfish crumbs the kids have smooshed into the carpets. ;-)

Halloween is our fave holiday. Our wedding anniversary is Oct 30th and its also our youngest child's birthday. We love the entire month of October.
