What kind of family vacation do you fantasize about?

I honestly really can’t wait to take the boys to Walt Disney World. It’s not in the foreseeable future, but it’s definitely on my mind. Daniel and I love going so much. It will be wonderful to see it all again through the eyes of Lucas and Henry. We haven’t done really any character visits […]

I wish I could give my child…

A┬áPinterest-perfect first birthday party. Silly me. I thought I could just sort float through their first couple of birthdays because A) they aren’t going to remember anything, and B) they don’t have friends yet. Now, despite feeling somewhat guilty based on what I’ve seen from friends of their grand plans for first birthday parties, I […]

If you could do anything tomorrow, what would it be?

Tell Daniel to take off work and pile in a car big enough to hold the two of us, the boys, Aunt Sydney and whatever stuff we would need for a day trip to Riverbanks Zoo. I am dying to do this. Daniel’s work schedule is a little prohibitive. Finances are a little prohibitive, although […]

The boys either sleep or quietly look around during our walks, wherever they are. Usually. Not yesterday. Henry decided he was mad at life and […]

How do you enjoy music with your child?

Since my laptop is on the kitchen table where I feed the boys, I play one of the local radio stations while they eat. I also do a random shuffle on all my downloaded music when we go for walks. I’ve also become quite adept at making up baby-themed lyrics to pop songs to sing […]

What’s the next book you want to read?

I’ve still been working my way through the “Game of Thrones” books, and I have plenty left there. I’m also reading “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” and “Eating Well When You’re Expecting” is sitting on my counter. Because right now, eating well means eating just enough to kill the nausea without being so much […]

What was the last party you went to?

Our publisher took us out to dinner at Indaco to celebrate the day the we won the Pulitzer Prize. It was pretty awesome. I never like to make normal faces in pictures. That wasn’t just because there was wine. Mmm… wine.

What was the last book you read?

I finished the “Fifty Shades” trilogy a couple weeks ago. It wasn’t as bad as I expected it to be, but that’s not to say that it was very good. I feel like I had to work too hard to overcome the flaws in the writing (and the hardcore porn stuff) to actually get to […]

What was the last movie you rented?

I have no idea. But I watched “Mockingjay: Part 1” last night (which I bought). Excellent movie.

What’s the last song you listened to?

I know there were others that came on the radio after it, but the one that’s standing out to me is “Hey ya!” by Outkast.
