Ta Da!

It’s certainly not perfect and there are still a lot of little changes I need to make, but here we are… the new blog with name change since there are no longer three of us and I wanted something I wouldn’t have to change again.  The banner is a little cutesy right now, but I’m hoping to have someone draw something a lot better soon!

In the meantime, for anyone who follows me, you now want to follow: http://www.dinosandbunnies.com.

And now to go catch up on a plethora of things.  How can it be a new year and already I feel like I have so much to catch up on?  Between sick kids and apparently too much relaxing via reading and watching shows, I now need to get back on track.  I’m actually looking forward to getting back into a routine again, though I will miss not working. 😉  Oh, to be a lady of leisure.

Winding Down

I am so looking forward to having a 5 day weekend.  Josh and I decided to take Friday off and go see a movie (hopefully) while the kiddos are in day care. This might be my last post before the new year as well depending on time and how easily my blog transfer goes.  It was a long weekend. I caught some kind of cold bug, which combined with my wierd allergy issues meant I was pretty much wiped out.  Friday I woke up with one of those sinus headaches where your teeth throb, swollen tonsils, sore throat – you name it.  My hives also decided to get much worse over the weekend, so it’s time to get something stronger and see the allergist, I think.  I woke up with lips plumper than a Kardashian’s this Sunday and today my left eye is puffy… only the left one.  So weird.  Enough complaining, though!

If you want to win “Best Cookie/Bar” in your office cookie competition, than make Gooey Honey Blondies (like I did).

Awesome family photos gone wrong.

Really looking forward to seeing this!

Friday Funday!


It may only be 17 degrees outside, but it’s sunny and it’s Friday, so hooray! Phoebe had her one year check-up today, which included 5 shots (4 vacs + flu shot), so I think tonight I’ll be snuggling our little lady.  In the meantime…

The Art of Stillness in the Japanese Wilderness.

Going along with stillness, why we need a secular sabbath.

Justine Bateman on being a middle-aged college student.  If she can do it, then I can definitely go back one day.

Bill Murray being Bill Murray – good read – makes me love him even more.


Friday Funday!

I’m really looking forward to the weekend (typical), but especially since the weather is supposed to be nice tomorrow. We’re probably going to try and go to an orchard/pumpkin patch/something seasonal.  The kids have never picked apples or anything, so that could be fun, right?

Some interesting facts about banned books in America.

Finding your Life Purpose.

Make an ordinary day happy!

Looking forward to this new Bill Murray movie!

And for you, Josh.

Friday Funday!

Hooray for the weekend!

820 Occupations and their salaries.  I am clearly in the wrong profession. 😉

These rejected princesses would never make it into a Disney film… for very, very good reasons.

Ha ha, this is a fantastic ad campaign for a product geared towards young girls.

And a little something in case you’re also missing the Dowager.
