Three

This is Wesleyan Hall. It was the building Donnie and I studied in while getting our Geography degrees at the University of North Alabama. I spent many hours in that building and even a few nights working on projects for school and work. E even slept up there a few times. One notable time, I laid down with him just to “rest my eyes” on the couch in the computer lab, and then woke up the next morning in a panic as E was due at school in about 5 minutes. Luckily his Kindergarten had a uniform, so no one...

This Is Basically An Entry Where I Talk To Myself A Lot 47

This Is Basically An Entry Where I Talk To Myself A Lot

I had this entry TOTALLY PLANNED for the weight I was DETERMINED to hit this week. Last week I was 1.5lbs away from being lighter than I was when I got pregnant with Wes. I was going to write about getting down to Pre-Pre-Pregnancy weight. This was going to be PERFECT since he turns 3 this weekend. SEE THE SYNCHRONICITY? It was going to be AMAZING. But you know what? I didn’t drop that 1.5lbs. And I looked at the scale and cursed it because: I did TWO double-workout days this week. TWO. And I ate cabbage and asparagus for...

My Teacher 5

My Teacher

I just love this picture. I love that she looks so natural doing this because it gives me hope that she’ll navigate the waters of femininity better than I did. I used to blame being raised by a Man in a house with a Brother and no other female for my inadequacy in that department. However, Nikki only has ME and she seems to be doing better at the age of 5 than I am at 35, so I think some of those tendencies must be innate. I’m thrilled they’re there inside her, because it gives ME someone to learn...

Random Notes About TV

We all know I love TV. I don’t watch as much as I used to, but I do still watch more than most people. And this is my periodic blog entry dedicated to TV as the Fall Season wraps up. This blog entry is full of spoilers, if you’re not caught up on your shows you may want to skip this entry. However, if you are? Commentary is welcome! ****************** The Vampire Diaries is still the show I look forward to the MOST. The writing on that show is superb and keeps me guessing every episode. And now…next season? SO...

Freakin’ BUGS. 14

Freakin’ BUGS.

I kept the interwebs updated in other areas about the BUG DRAMA that unfolded in our lives this weekend. It all started Friday when Wes found this dead beetle on our porch. He started carrying it around and while I took pictures of his sister before his dance recital, he insisted that I take a picture of him and his bug too. As you see here, he even put the bug on his lap. You know – because when he gets his picture taken with Mommy or Daddy? He sits in their lap! This photo setup only makes sense. We...
