My Twitter Personality, Graphically Visualized

My Twitter Personality, Graphically Visualized

Technology 2

I recently came across this awesome website, Visual.ly that house those cool, funny, and interesting graph images that I’m sure you’ve seen all over the web at some point. It’s great that they have so many in one location so you can laugh over all the crazy things people come up with. Well, lets just say I’ve wasted quite a bit of time perusing this site and I love it…. Read more »

Project BG2, Week 30 – Fall Makes Me Sickie

Project BG2, Week 30 – Fall Makes Me Sickie

Project BG2 0

Well, this week has been kind of crappy since BG2 has been sick. Just a cold, but still uncomfortable. That means she’s barely eating/drinking and she’s cranky all the time. Let me tell you, nights are not pretty when this girl is sick! We took her out to a restaurant this week, which we rarely do because she’s a handful (and honestly, we don’t have the energy to tow around… Read more »

Book Review: Hourglass by Myra McEntire

Book Review: Hourglass by Myra McEntire

Young Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★½

I really didn’t know what to expect going into this book, but in the end I was a happy reader. Myra does a great job of catching your attention right from the start with Emerson and her power. At first, you think it’s just a girl who can see ghosts, no biggie, but as the story progresses, you understand what Emerson’s power truly is and you get to meet some… Read more »

Sundays With Vi3tBabe and Kids

Family, Parenting 11

One of the bloggers that I stalk religiously, Jill from Baby Rabies, has challenged the people of the blogosphere to capture a day in their lives via photos. Naturally, I jumped at the chance to give a legitimate reason as to why I always have my camera near me, in addition to taking daily photos of the little one for Project BG2. I love the idea of really showing how… Read more »

Book Review: Die for Me by Amy Plum

Book Review: Die for Me by Amy Plum

Young Adult Book Reviews 8 ★★★★★

When I first heard about this book, I thought I’d be dealing with the typical angels and paranormal romance. I’m happy that I was wrong. I truly loved everything about this book! Plum sets the scene in Paris, the most romantic city in the world, and throws together two lost souls, Kate and Vincent, who couldn’t be more perfect for each other. It was love at first sight and I… Read more »

Project BG2, Week 29 – Nothing New On My End

Project BG2 6

Look at this baby rounding out the last week of the “twenties” haha. Nothing really new this week though. Still a spoiled, cranky butt. Still drools and spits like a fountain. Still prefers real, people food as opposed to her formula. Still won’t give me a moments rest, always keeping an eye on me and wanting me to hold her! Love her though! I have noticed that she’s been doing… Read more »

I’ve Been a Very Bad Blogger

On My Mind 0

Today, I’m linking up with Shell at Things I Can’t Say and Pouring My Heart Out! Sigh, I admit it. I’ve given in to the lure of product reviews, books-related things, memes, promos, giveaways, and just about anything BUT blogging about what really matters! Family. I started this blog to chronicle TTC, then pregnancy, and then being a 2nd-time mother (which I still do with my weekly Project BG2 posts);… Read more »

10 Books I’m Sure Everyone Has Read But Me

Books 10

Yay! I’m finally linking up with Jamie and friends over at The Broke and the Bookish for their awesome meme, Top Ten Tuesdays. This week everyone’s talking about books they know other people have read and they haven’t. There’s a lot of those for me, sigh, but I thought I’d mention the big ones. 1. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodgkin: There’s so much buzz about this book,… Read more »

Book Review: But I Love Him by Amanda Grace

Book Review: But I Love Him by Amanda Grace

Young Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★★★

But I Love Him is a gripping tale of domestic violence, an issue I’ve always felt strongly about, through the mind of the victim. This is actually my first book I’ve read on the subject as I try to avoid this topic because of how I feel about it, but I’ve heard good things about the book so I wanted to give it a try. It was definitely different in… Read more »
