Black Thumb

I still remember the moment. Seeing that beautiful little fiddle leaf, standing by it’s lonesome in Home Depot, just waiting for me to come and rescue it from the dole drum life of the hardware store. I couldn’t believe my eyeballs, and Jay couldn’t believe his ears – why, why was this woman so excited to get her paws on this tropical house plant.

I mean come. on. husband – that’s a whole lotta…

House Stalking

Since I’ve been in such a vegetative state lately, progress has slowed down a bit on the house. Ok, a lot. ;) Pretty much all we do every night is lay in bed and watch Soprano re-runs. Maybe go for a walk if I’m feeling up to it. I know I’ll be feeling better soon, but y’all, I’m missing my pre-pregnancy days like whoa this week. Missing my energy, my appetite and my ability to walk into a room…

Stacking Up

Don’t know where it came from, but Thursday afternoon I got a legit burst of energy. For someone who’s days consist of barely being able to get out of the bed in the morning – this was a BIG deal. And as I was stumbling along past the laundry roomto start my morning, I thought, you know, it just might be time to start switching things up and making our room look a bit more sprucified. Get things…

Perhaps it was the two glasses of rum punch in me, but when I sat down a few months ago to use the loo in my friend Emily’s home, I was mesmerized by a little poster she had, hanging on the back of her bathroom door. It was long, but I read the whole darn thing, and then just said a resounding YES in my head. That is exactly it, exactly it. As soon as I read it, I knew I wanted to find a print…
