This is Halloween (and PR done right)

Happy Halloween! In case you don’t follow me on Twitter, Tumblr or “the book” – here’s a picture of my kidlets. This was how our day started. The skies were chilly, and the fog was thick. Sort of the perfect weather to start off Halloween with! So far we’ve had a busy day. TheBoy took

Narciso Rodriguez for Kohls. My thoughts.

I’ve blogged about my body and about my health issues. (For those new here, I’m petite, very thin- and naturally so. Sounds like a dream, but there are a lot of health issues that come along with being underweight- and just as much scrutiny from people from assume that I’m thin because of eating disorders.

Hidden Talents.

One of the things I remind my friends who are just having kids (since TheBoy and I were one of the first in our circle of friends) is that kids are sponges. They watch and hear everything. The Oldest Kidlet says, “Oh. My. Gosh.” just like I do. He went through a phase where everything

C25K Week Two Redux.

I had another long weird week where I didn’t get much running in. So today I went, and as I haven’t been able to complete Week Three Day One yet… I thought doing Week Two Day Three was a good way to ease into it. Week Three has a five minute warm up and 90

The Major Award.

Yesterday I was on the phone with my mom (yes, I do talk to her a lot) and she reminded me of a story that had us laughing. Last spring, I got a phone call from the Oldest Kidlet’s teacher. “Sorry for the last minute call, but OK is getting an award tomorrow, and it’s

Pizza Night.

Our family, like most families has a pizza night. That night where you pick up pizza to give everyone a break from cooking. It’s a tradition in this house, spanning for decades before we moved in and before I joined the family. There’s a pizzeria practically around the corner, that has a one-topping carry-out special.

What’s your favorite color?

“What’s your favorite color,” the Little Kidlet asked me as he sat on the toilet. (We have a lot of conversations while he’s trying to go) “Green.” “Not pink?” I suppose I made a weird face, because immediately he looked ashamed and said, “I said something wrong, didn’t I?” As a little girl, I liked

Accidentally Link – A Tale of Haircolor.

Right before my 32nd birthday, I cut off several inches of hair and had it dyed teal. It was liberating in so many ways. All eyes were on me, so I had to just be me. There was nowhere to hide. Because dear readers, I can’t speak for other shades, but blue-green is really high

Nature is amazing.

Today’s one of the first days that feels like fall. A storm system is blowing through LA today, and temperatures are in the mid to upper 60′s. After two months of 90 degree weather, it’s beautiful. Not only that, but this storm happens to have the possibility of thunder, which means it’s blustery, too. It

Sharing a Kitchen.

The Little Kidlet has a lot of food allergies, and in our very crowded house (we live with my in-laws, which also includes TheBoy’s two adult brothers) LK and I are the only one with food issues- and mine is that I’m allergic to cow’s milk products. In the last three years, I could count
