Well, hello there! Have you seen this? Yes, that's right: I'm a participant in today's edition of Whoorl's Hair Thursday! And it's not just any Hair Thursday... the results will be shown on national television. Yeah, you heard me... NATIONAL TELEVISION. I am in a slight panic. But an excited one. So get out there and rock the vote. Will it be a sleek shorter bob or a medium-length layered cut with bangs? You decide.

Hi there y'all. Well, forget what I said about getting seven-hour stretches of sleep. That, apparently, has gone by the wayside for now. However, the reason I am even blogging at all right now is that both of my children have been asleep, simultaneously, aka AT THE SAME TIME, for nigh on to two full hours now. What have I done with my free time? you may ask. Well, I have caught up on blog reading and eaten my weight in 100-calorie Oreo packs. Those 100-calorie packs are great and yet ridiculous. They are nicely measured so you don't go overboard, but the whole "not going overboard" system doesn't really work when you eat multiple packs. Ugh.

In other news, this week has been crazy so far. CRAZY. I think I'm going to be able to go back to work at a reduced work schedule (YAY!) and something else kooky and exciting is also in the works for next week. More on that tomorrow, I think.

Also, I am stressing out because we are having a birthday party for Evan this weekend and there will be 25 kids plus all the associated adults! Whoa Nelly. I really need to get my act together and start some hot favor-buyin', pizza-orderin' action. Off to make an official to-do list.

life is good

Maternity leave rocks. Let's just get that out of the way right now. And guess what? Today is Evan's third birthday! And Delaney is 10 weeks old today. To celebrate both these occasions, she has been sleeping good seven-hour stretches for the last few nights. Which contributes to my general level of happiness and joy.

Do you know what else contributes to my general level of happiness and joy? Starbucks iced coffee with vanilla.

Again: loving maternity leave. Where else can you eat birthday cupcakes in the morning, have vanilla iced coffee every afternoon, have frequent brunch and shopping dates with your friends and gaze goofily at your happily smiling baby... all while wearing comfy slobby clothes? This is the life, I'm telling you! Why can't I get paid for this?
