I'm nearly caught up to my life...

Shannon featured me recently as a guest blogger- and I was super flattered when she asked. But ya know what I found out? I'm a blog comment killer. She had all of these comments on others post...and as per usual...record screeches. People leave and I'm left with my "wit" in my hand.


Anyway, I'm hoping to yogaVlog it up one day this week and get back to communicating with my blog buds on the regular if my life gets back to "normal." Since field hockey started I'm not sure that's going to happen.

Remember in May when I told my boss I want to coach lacrosse because I thought I'd be able to handle it with Maks? HA! I hate being this busy. I think I'm going to take on an unpaid personal assistant intern.

Interested in applying?

Here's an AWESOME baby- I LOVE how he's holding on to the mat like he's not sure he wants to roll. I'm with you, buddy. Let's keep things simple.

I think cantaloupes give me headaches.

Second headache I've gotten in a week or two- and I think the common denominator is cantaloupe. It might be the cookies and pudding I was eating chips and salsa style but I doubt it. 

Wanna see the cutest baby ever? 



We're gonna need a bigger boat.

I sent that caption to my father-in-law, a Jaws fan, in the subject of a text message- this picture attached. 

Everyone get why I did that? 

He took it to mean I was pregnant again.

Makes me want to go wash my mouth out with chocolate. 


I'll be having another baby- and will probably be pregnant again before the fiscal year comes to an end...but uh, let me get drunk once before that happens.

Blog Break.

Ever just need a break after putting way too much time into something that doesn't seem productive?

Me too.

Am I just keeping an online journal or am I providing myself the opportunity to bide my time?


Rhetoric.


I'll be back when the mood strikes. me.

Examiner...

Ok. I've written two articles.

They've been messy. I'm used to writing in the first person- but practice makes perfect, right?

The problem? They're still not up yet- I've gotten all the the emails telling me they should be up and posted...but I suppose I'm an active writer...getting up two articles since I heard from those birds three days ago.

We'll see right.

Now's time to take my own advice and not eat dessert every night. Yuck. Saying this makes me want to wash my mouth out with chocolate.

Awwwww yea...

You know that's right...

Spreading myself thinner as we speak!

I was laying in bed working on a job mantra- putting out into the Universe that I wanted a job that utilized my degree (either Master of Science in Leadership or BA in English,) had a flexible schedule and offered great perks. (I know...I want it all.)

So guess what- Examiner.com emailed me yesterday and offered me a chance to be the Philadelphia Fitness Contributer. Whooo-hooo, right?

Before I went and bought myself the celebratory $200 bottle of champagne to share with the man I love I turned to my dear friend, Google to see what others had to say about it. I'd be asked to write 3-4 articles a week on the topic, make it appeal to local readers and in return, I'd be compensated via Paypal. Super, right? So each of these people commented that they make about $.03-$.07 per article and write about 100ish articles a month- but the benefits far outweigh the pay.

I see myself calling local gyms, eateries, spas, wellness centers (I want to focus on more than just physical fitness) getting a cheap or free service or interviewing peeps via phone or email to help fund my candy and soda escapades.

The best part? I can use this to tout readers to check out yogaVlog or whatever else I want. It will work - and turn into something...I'm just not sure what yet.

Cheer's to el Interneto!

Christmas!? ALREADY!?!

So the Tip Junkie daily emails got my wheels turning. I love tips. Ironically I was already thinking about Christmas this morning so this just added fuel to my ridiculousness fire.

I always struggle around Christmas time. Mostly, it's because I only get paid once a month so saving/spending/living pay check to pay check and not dipping into my savings really puts a toll on me and my plastic. In honor of being a little better (with money, life, everything) I think I'm going to start thinking about Christmas...before it gets away from me (like always.)

I took a cue from my friend KellyConfetti (have we out grown that nickname, by the way? Let me know and I'll reluctantly move onto the Bag Lady like everyone else :-/ Kelly Confetti reminds me of simpler times...high school keg parties in basements in Yeadon...Mother/Daughter Slaughters...I digress.) and started an amazon wish list for myself. I really got myself into trouble when I signed up for the one click speed check out- did some serious damage on my maternity leave...

Don't worry, they're in my closet...
But a wish list? Instead of buying everything I can just let them sit there- and direct on lookers to my little corner on the Internets.

Now we move on to others- and the Christmas gift buying aspect of it all. Christmas turns into a really stressful time of year for me. Not because of the busyness of if all- not because it gets dark at 4:30pm and that's depressing...it's more like I looooove finding exactly the right gift for people and I feel like I let them down when I break down and buy the Home Depot gift card year after year. If I start paying attention in August, I think I might be able to do this my way. Which is what Christmas is all about really, keeping me happy. Forget readying the world for the birth of Christ and all that jazz...I want not to have gift givers remorse! ;-)

So...if you see me skulking around keeping notes in a tiny notebook, I'm not being a creep or writing a mystery novel, instead- I'm plotting my Christmas attack!

So get ready to be WOWd.
