Welcome to my new home….

Well, hello there, fancy seeing you here. Thank you for coming to see my new home. It’s a beauty isn’t it? Yeah, worked on it day and night all by myself.

Okay, that was a lie. I actually paid someone to do it because I’m an idiot. And if you ask her, she will surely agree.

I need to take a minute to introduce you to someone with the patience of a saint and the smarts of Bill Gates. Her name is Kelly Torres and she is the woman behind Twenty70 Hosting.

Lurve her. Like really. Like if I wasn’t already married I would be internet dating her. (Sorry Jennifer and Laura, but I’ve been cheating on you. What can I say, I’m too much blog for one two women.) She not only did all this awesomeness for a very low price, but she did it fast and she endured all my stupid questions with ease. Even let me text her after hours.

Most of you reading don’t even let me do that, and you like me.

(**SIDE NOTE: I just typed Laura’s blog address “An Uncommon [family]” into my google to get the link for that and google was smart enough to finish it with “Drunk”. The internet is on to her.)

Anyway, she created this fab new spot you’re perusing right now. So make yourself comfortable, ohh and ahh to your heart’s content. It’s gorg, I know. And I don’t even use the word “gorg”.

I had been thinking of making the big jump from Blogger to WordPress for a while but was afraid of the cost and the struggles (because like I’ve said before, I’m an idiot and im cheap). Twenty70 did the switch, the design and is hosting for one low monthly price. AND Kelly Torres herself did all my work.

So now you know why I’ve been MIA lately. Well, that and I’m been lazy as hell and my blog has suffered.

BUT I HAVE A REASON! I swear I do…

If  you’re a guy, this will be TMI so feel free to just scroll down now, don’t worry I won’t be offended.

So ladies, the time has come, we said we would wait till Audrey turned 2, which she did last week (birthday post to follow), we are on the baby making train.

Yup. We are so on that train that we have bought our tickets, packed our bags, picked out our seat and ordered a cocktail (gotta get all the drinking in while I can).

But first I had to pull the goalie (otherwise known as ditching the IUD). And if any of you have Mirena, you know how painful that is. Ugh. So I’ve been recovering…and PMSing like a mofo.

I am so damn pleasant right now.

So start sending us all those good baby vibes and prayers for a boy would be nice too.

Tomorrow I will post pictures of the Elmo party, the Mommalogues photo shoot and the new furry addition to the family.

Happy Monday, yo!

 

ErinCondren.com Review & GIVEAWAY!!!!

Anyone that knows me knows that I am, to put it mildly, severely overly and psychotically organized.

I loves me some Container Store.

I am also one of those people who’s brain does not work very well all the time so I’ve learned to write things down. Pretty much everything down. Like everything.

I have written down what I am writing down right now. Scary.

So it goes without saying that I love stationary. The prettier the better. So when I came across the magnificent site ErinCondren.com I just about fell off my chair.

LOVING.

And then this came in the mail….

Even the frickin shipping box is super cute!!

This bad boy is the 2011-2012 Life Planner…and that’s exactly what it does…plan you life. In a super cute and chic way, of course.

Fancy ya’ll

Even their site is the cutest ever with it’s little chimes and colors. But the beauty of their stuff is that it is all totally customizable on top of being super useful. It’s the paper equivalent to the holy grail of purses. (By this I mean the bag that is super cute and awesome looking, not too big but big enough to fit all that baby crap you have to lug around, is cleanable with a baby wipe and somehow makes you look slimmer. You know what I mean right? And if you happen to have this bag, please email me immediately. Like now.)

I just love having a place for everything and everything in it’s place. Don’t you?

I obviously need a vacation…

On top of having the worlds best organizers and planners this site has basically everything else. From iPad/iPhone cases to calling cards and address labels to invitations. I’m warning you, you will want to buy everything.

BUT WAIT!! There’s more!!

What’s better than finding your new favorite website? Finding a GIVEAWAY featuring your new favorite website!!

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, you heard that right. My piddly little blog is hosting it’s very first giveaway and who better to giveaway than the amazing stuff at ErinCondren.com.

WIN IT!!!
