Out of my intrepid fear of cliches, I may have been unclear with Tuesday's post. Even though we survived the Spawnocalypse
--two and a half years of transition from daydreaming newlyweds to sometimes-haggard parents of back-to-back babies--this journey and blog are far from over.
But, at the risk of using dark analogies
to describe parenthood (who, me?),… Continue

No? Dinosaurs are extinct you say? I beg to differ. I believe my two year old is a reincarnated Pterodactyl. What proof do I have? The proof is in the pudding, or rather the Pterodactyl scream we all experience when she is unhappy. (Read more

(Disclaimer: Adult Content or something....I couldn't make this shit up)
There was this guy. His name was Wayne but he looked so much like Kevin Costner that me and my best friend called him Kevin. Not to be confused with the real Kevin I was also seeing who owned a restaurant and did things that I'd tell him to do that I'm sure he'd never want anyone to even speculate about, let alone write about on their blog. But that's a whole 'nother post.
So I went out with Kevin… Continue

There's no doubt about it: when you're young you have to be flexible, willing to adapt in this constantly changing world. Doing things the same old way each day is for old folks . . . you know, like four-year-olds. That's right. By the time a child is turns four, he'll have most likely experienced such monumental lifestyle changes as giving up his beloved pacifier and moving from the cozy comfort of his crib to the vast expanse of a big kid bed. Many kids will have left home already and gone… Continue

I am a little worried that I may have an addiction. That may surprise you if you know that my top strength is being cautious, and I think getting ink permanently placed in one's skin may be less than cautious. But each time I get tattooed, my immediate thought is, "Ooohh, I love the way that color looks on my arm (or back or other arm). What else can I do to color my body?" And usually before I am even out of the tattoo studio, I have nearly decided on what kind of tattoo I'll get next. And… Continue

Children keep you young” is quite possibly the biggest lie told to parents in the history of parenthood. Right up there with beating with leather belts will somehow discipline them in a good way!
First, the facts. Carrying a child, sucks out all of your nutrients, leeches your gums, ruins your breasts, mottles your once lovely skin tone and adds a layer of fat to your stomach that simply will never go away unless, of course, you go the surgical route.
On a mental health… Continue

I love denim because it is extremely versatile. It allows you to, effortlessly, transition from a dress down day with the kids to a flawless evening outfit for an outing with the girls or your favorite guy.

This Friday J and I will celebrate five years of marriage, hence the Ooph logo. I spent some time Sunday looking through our wedding photos and reminiscing about the day we got married. I know I am biased but it was an insanely fun wedding, complete with hay bales, cowboy hats, Budweiser and margarita popsicles to help our guests cope with the hot September afternoon. I have only looked at the photos one other time right after the wedding and… Continue

So I know we are all busy with our lives and families, careers and relationships. Life seems to be moving ahead at a ”Warp 10 Mr. Sulu” rate (I promise that is the first and last Start Trek reference ever in this blog!) and we are all looking to technology to help us keep things straight or speed things up. We have email, Twitter, Facebook, texting and of course cell phones attached to all of our wrists. When things are moving this quickly, it is comforting to know that some things cannot and… Continue

I am a firm believer that things don’t happen without a good reason. I have always believed that everything happens within a bigger plan and when we look back on it later it will seem so obvious. I will also say that my experience has been that when I am in the midst of the drama it can be quite difficult to see what the hell it all means. It has happened this way almost every step of my life. For most calamities I have come to terms and found some peace in the way things turned out. There are… Continue
