Hopping around the blogosphere.

Greetings, fellow bloggers! Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the blogosphere.

I’ll be honest. When I bought my domain name, I had no idea what I was going to do with it.  I had vague intentions of maybe putting up a portfolio (I’m a copywriter by trade), but never quite got around to it.

So this site sat, neglected, for many a month. Then I got myself knocked up. And all of a sudden, gazillions of hormone-induced thoughts, feelings and just plain craziness began swirling around in my brain. I needed a place to let them out before my head exploded.

Thus, this blog was born.

These days, it’s become a regular habit. At the moment, I tend to write a lot about my brand new baby girl and how I’m coping with this sudden transition from (mostly) carefree professional woman to overwhelmed mommy. But since mommyhood is just one part of my life, I reserve the right to talk about anything I darn well please.

What can I say? I’m a redheaded, hot tempered, overly emotional drama queen. And this blog? Is where I let it all hang out.

I hope you’ll come along for the ride. I don’t know exactly where I’m going, but I promise the trip will never get boring.

Highlights?

Here’s where it all began.

And my open letter to all those who annoyed me with their ridiculous comments.

Here’s when I realize that yes, I was actually going to be a mom.

This is the ridiculous chain of events that occurred when I brought my baby home.

And realized breastfeeding wasn’t what it was cracked up to be.

Then I realized alcohol was going to continue to be a big part of my life.

And decided to toss those childrearing books out the window.

There's more, but I'm sure you'd rather find it yourself. So, come on in, make yourself comfortable and hang out for a while. I look forward to meeting all of you.

  2. I love the notebook! And the paisley like design. Very very cool!

    Being a mom is a lot of hard work, isn't it?

    Have a great party.

  3. Sounds like we have a bit in common....red-head, overly emotional, etc. I wish I were better at "letting it all hang out" as you appear to do. Maybe I can learn a thing or two.

    Happy Blog Hopping!!

    Re: Things to never say to a pregnant woman....
    When I was pregnant... I got a lot of: "Are you sure there's just ONE in there??"

    Hahaha... Yeah, here's a thought: Why don't you just tell me how much I owe you for the damn groceries, and we can leave the details of my ultrasounds to me and my doctors, mmmmmkkkaaayyyy?

    Anyway, I kept a blog while I was pregnant too... www.vollbaby.wordpress.com. Your writing reminds me a lot of... well, me.

    And, I, too, am a writer. We should collaborate on a snarky pregnancy book so we can be stay at home moms.

  8. Wouldn't it be nice to be a stay at home mom? Ah, dare to dream.

    I've got a better idea...let's write a snarky book that can get turned into an Oscar winning screenplay and a Tony award winning musical! Then we could be rich, famous, stay at home moms with trainers, nutritionists and personal chefs!

    Yes, yes I do have a lively fantasy life...

  14. Why thank you! It's very nice to meet you...my vocab is sometimes too large. It tends to get me in trouble in real life.
