Well, who knew!?!?!

My dear friend Basia has started a blog. Low and behold, this chick can write! And she is super entertaining with her recipes and yoga stories. I likey!

Remember Basia, friends, from this post. She's a hoot, to say the very least.

Ch-ch-ch-check her out.

Welcome, B!

My mommy friends informed me that my blogcabulary is incorrect. Dads don't "babysit"...they spend time with their kids. Here here! I concur.

Thanks, ladies, for reminding me (gently) that my husband is awesome, but is doing what he should be doing. I knew I was friends with you guys for a reason :)

I stand corrected,

How do I love thee?

On MLK day, I went on a date...with myself. It was wonderful. I went to the Ritz Cinema in Old City and saw the deliciously sexy Black Swan. I had popcorn and a soda. I was in heaven.

My husband, whom I love more and more every day (sigh!) babysat. When I got home, John was pushing Singer around in a boxcar. Too funny!

Here's to creative Daddy-Os!
Lucky me,

A tiny problem...

I have a tiny, teeny, very small vintage clothing problem. First of all, my favorite thing to do in the whole world is peruse through thrift stores--I mean REALLY comb--and buy unusual threads from decades past. I love it.

But, my husband has recently pointed out that I have too many clothes. I mean, he's always said that I have too many clothes. After close examination, and now that I'm doing a lot more laundry with baby boy and his incessant "constume changes" after mealtime, I've realized that I really do have too much clothing.

Oh no. It gets worse. I've recently discovered Sisters of the Black Moon. Ugh. I haven't bid on anything (yet), but HOW BEAUTIFUL are their finds!?!?!?!? I fear them. I visit their ebay store probably once a week and daydream about their vintage pieces and their gorgeous styling.

After losing the pregnancy weight, I can finally fit in my fun clothes again. But, I know I have too much. So, I'm thinking of a way to purge my closet...and then I can bid on Sisters' collection. See! This is bad.

Stuffed (closet) to the brim,

Upcoming guest post!

I'm writing over at A Modern Day Ricky and Lucy again. Check me out on January 15th, I think.

And, here's a pic of the mean baby we live with. He's a teething beast right now....but he sure is cute. Lucky for him! Otherwise, mommy might bake him into a pie.

Back in the swing of things.

We drove to Texas from Philadelphia. With an 8 month old, a black lab, and a car full of presents, luggage and a lot of love, we made it safely, and we survived the most intense road trip ever! Needless to say, I've needed a while to put my head on straight when we got home.

But I'm back! And excited about the upcoming year. I have a crawler who babbles in his own language that I can decipher probably 75% of the time...which is pretty good, right? I have a heavenly husband who orders Thai whenever I'm too tired to cook, and he also lets me sleep in every other day (we trade off). And it's already January 11, which means Philly's harsh unforgiving winter is about half-way over!!! Hooooooray!

It's great to be blogging again, and I look forward to 2011 adventures and blessings to share.

Here's a vid of the kid. It captures his whiney "Malcolm won't let me catch him" voice, and then you get to witness the crawling master :)

Chasing after a wee one,
