About Me

Not much to say really. I’m a shy, geeky sort of girl in my twenties, married for 3 years. We just had our first baby, an adorable little girl named Emily! We also have a kitty named Buffy (I’m a fan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer – team Spike!). I like reading and playing video games, but I’m also quite girly, and love to shop (or window shop..).

I started this blog mainly just to have a place to write about stuff going on in my life. I’ve gotten into reading a lot of other blogs lately and it seemed fun. Not many people know about this blog yet, but I’m hoping to eventually make some friends online!

    Hello gorgeous!!!!

    I have immensely enjoyed reading through your blog! It turms out we have a lot in common except fortunately, I am not in love with Chris. I LOVE Cheetos… and crab legs! Not so much at the same time…. pepsi with crushed ice and cheetos with a napkin so I don;t get orange ands and crumbles all over me. Crab legs with sweet tea and lots of butter and boiled shrimp…yes I love Chinese buffet. Sometimes, when I get out of the car, they put up a “closed for business” sign. I can easily put one of those out of business in one eventing. MY FAVORITE is still Lobster…once with lots of butter. And air popped popcorn… with real butter, just like movies…

    Dagmar (my better half) is big knitter, crocheter (that sounds nasty) and quilter. I showed her your blog and she loved your posts and pics. She said she would love to meet with you and help you some. She also wants to show you Ravelry… it is a monster Website with free patterns and …it’s heavenly. (In other words, for a guy… it’s hell…) Tell Chripper to make a dinner plan, we’ll all go eat and come back to house. Dagmar can show her craft room and stuff and Chris and I can do manly stuff and hang out in the garage with race cars and power tools.

    Congrats on blog. I LOVE it…keep up the good job.
    P.S. Cat Joke –
    The kindergarden class was discussing current things that baffled them or made them wonder. The boy said “I saw a dead cat yesterday.”

    Teacher: “Are you sure it was dead? Sometimes cats lay so still so long, they can look dead.”

    Boy: “Yes maam. I pissed in its ear.”

    Teacher: “YOU WHAT?”

    Boy: “You know. I leaned over real careful and went psssst, right in its ear.”

    I don’t know how I found it, but I love your blog!! My husband and I went to Disney World together for the first time in Oct of 2006…and we’re going back this December to celebrate our 5 year anniversary. Congrats on your baby. I’ve added your blog to my favorites, I find you hilarious and I’ve loved reading about your trips. Ever since we booked our anniversary trip, I haven’t been able to get enough info! What is it about Disney World that makes it so easy to get obsessed? Well thanks for the great writing!!

      Wow, thank you! I’m glad to have a new reader! šŸ˜€
      Hubby and I do love Disney World – it’s the happiest place on earth after all, haha! I’m so jealous of you guys getting to visit in December! I’ve heard it’s absolutely wonderful at that time of year. And congrats on your anniversary!

    I loved your blog about Disney! I found it when doing a web search for recent info on Port Orleans French Quarters. Like one of the other posters, Kathleen, my hubby and I will be going to Disney World in Dec. for our anniversary (does it still count as an anniversary when you bring your 4 year old along? šŸ™‚ ). Any way, we are super excited to go back since we spent our first 6 anniversaries at Disney (prebaby), and now we can finally afford to go back. I know you will have a lot of fun taking your new bundle of joy to Disney one day. Thankfully a Disney obsession is something that can be enjoyed by the whole family. I hope you get to Disney soon!

      Thank you for reading! I’m glad you enjoyed the Disney posts. Hubby and I LOVE Disney World and, like you, we’ve spent the past 2 anniversaries there, plus our honeymoon. I really can’t wait to go back with our kid – it’ll be a whole new experience I’m sure!
      I’m so jealous that you guys are going, and in December!! Like I said to Kathleen, I’ve heard wonderful things about going at that time of year, so I’m hoping our next trip will be a December one, too (though, not for a few years sadly).
      I don’t know if you’ve already decided on a hotel, but I do highly recommend Port Orleans French Quarter – it was fabulous both times we’ve stayed there. It’s a beautiful place and I much prefer the smaller size to all of the much larger moderates. Wherever you stay, have a blast!

        I’m sure you’ll make it back to Disney soon…just think the baby is free until she turns 3. I just saw you are having a girl…congrats!!! Little girls are so fun and sweet. You will love having a girl, and you can indoctrinate her into loving all things Disney. We took our little girl when she was 2 and half (free, free, free), and she still wears her mouse ears all the time. Before you know it, you will be taking your little girl there. Congrats again!

      Hey heather….where are you guys staying for your anniversary!? We’re staying at Animal Kingdom Lodge this time around. I’ve already bought us tickets to La Nouba and I’ve booked us a Fireworks Cruise. SOOO excited!! šŸ™‚ 92 days!

        Animal Kingdom Lodge….I’m so jealous!!! šŸ™‚ You’ll love it there. We stayed there in early Jan. 2004 as season pass holders ( i think our room was $150 a night with tax), and when we got there, they upgraded us for free to a Savannah room. It was so awesome! I watched giraffes and zebras while I unpacked our suit cases. We had a blast!
        This time we are staying at French Quarters (Port Orleans). We have stayed there in the past, but it’s been a long time, so I hope it’s still as nice as we remembered (since it’s Disney, I’m sure it is). I love the Deluxe resorts(we’ve stayed at Wilderness Lodge- we could see the water parade from our room, Polynesian-nothing special, and Animal Kingdom lodge). 12 and half more weeks to go for us….we are all so excited! My hubby listens to some Disney pod cast everyday, and my four year old tells everyone we are going to Disney World in Dec. I don’t know when you guys are going in Dec., but there is a Disney fan group that is going to be there in mid. DEC. I think they leaving Dec. 13th. They are led by Lou Mongello (he does the WDW radio Pod cast). I don’t know how big of a group they have this year, but there should be some fun stuff going on for it. I think it’s called Disney Fest.
        Are you doing the Candle Light processional at Epcot? If you haven’t done it before, it’s not to be missed. They have dinner packages that get you VIP seating. We aren’t doing it this time šŸ˜¦ since our 4 year old won’t sit still that long, but I would if I could. If you have the time and a car, go see the Christmas displays at all the hotel’s lobbies. It’s so beautiful! They even build a giant gingerbread house in the Grand Floridian’s lobby and make and sell gingerbread men out of it.

        I love Disney World, but I especially love it at Christmas!!!

    Hey Mel!
    Finally had some time to read your blog. I really like your style. You should think about writing a book!
    Anyway… love all the pics… especially of you and Chris with the baby pacifiers in your mouths! Can’t wait to see all of the itsy bitsy cutsy baby girl clothes and the nursery. Let me know when you are ready to show it off.
    Glad you’re having a girl (we know what to do with those parts, don’t we?) :0)
    I was hoping for a boy but was really glad that T turned out to be a girl!
    If you ever need any girl advice feel free to email or call.
    Hope you have a restful night!

      Aw, thanks! Hopefully, the nursery might be in at least a slightly higher state of done-ness in late Oct once the furniture comes – now it’s still a mess of piles of things, haha. But you’re welcome anytime! And I’m sure I’ll be hitting you up for advice once the baby comes! šŸ™‚

    Congrats to you! I hope you have a fast and healthy labor! I went through two long pregnancy’s and labors, one single and then 2 years later surprise, triplets! I wish you and your growing family the best! I love the pictures of your nursery, too cute. Wish I could have put more time into mine, found out we were having triplets at 5 1/2 months, OOPPSS Dr’s didn’t have a clue until the first ultrasound (late) Anyways good luck to you I cant wait to see pictures of your baby girl. Did you pick a name yet? Good luck!

      Thanks for reading and for your kind words! šŸ™‚ We have chosen a name (actually, it’s been chosen since before she was conceived!), but we aren’t announcing it until she’s born. Only a couple weeks, though! šŸ™‚
