Lola & Oatmeal have a famous relative.

I’m posting this video because my brother in law is in it. And because I like it. Oatmeal’s younger sister is married to this cool guy named Roy.  If you knew Roy, you’d know he is definitely not the “actor in a music video” type.  But he’s just so cool that the Turnpike Troubadours thought […]

Learning to breastfeed kind of sucked.

This is the truth and I’m sticking to it. I’ve been wanting to write a post about nursing my wee one for some time now, but it never feels quite right.  People are so funny about the whole breastfeeding topic.  Some people think it’s awesome, but a lot of people act like the subject should […]

New Things Every Day – Poppyseed is 3 Months Old

Tomorrow our sweet girl will be 3 months old.  I cannot believe it.  How this much time has already passed is truly beyond me. 3 months ago today I was 6 days overdue and I just could NOT wait anymore.   I prayed for the best and sipped some castor oil. 3 months ago today […]

Sweet Poppyseed is 12 Weeks Old.

I can’t believe it’s been 12 weeks.  She is changing all the time now. Poppyseed thinks that she can talk to us.  She looks right at us and mimics the sounds that we say.  It is so much fun.  She’ll look us dead in the eye and say, “Ayyyyy.”  We’ll laugh and say, “I know!  […]

Weekend in Pictures

Sissy made it in from Japan last week, and oh was Lola thrilled. I haven’t been posting much lately due to work, hanging with my sister, traveling to my hometown, etc.  I don’t have much to write about but I did want to post some pictures. I wish I’d used my real camera, but I […]

Today’s WOD (Workout of the Day)

How did you break a sweat today?    

Happy Fourth of July!

Happy Independence Day! First of all, I’m thrilled to report that my sister and her family have made it to the States! When I wrote my last post, all I knew was that my sister and her family were sitting in an airport in Okinawa. They were trying to fly Space-A…hoping to get into 5 […]

Exciting Visit!!

I am SO excited! I may get to see my sissy soon! So, there’s the backstory… My sister has been living in Japan since this time last year.  When her husband got orders to move to Okinawa, Japan, it was really bittersweet.  On one hand, I was happy for her.  She (like me) had never […]

Lola and Oatmeal Booked a Trip to the Beach!

Lola here, and boy am I excited! I still remember my first trip to the beach.  I was invited by a friend from school when I was around 13 or so, and her family had rented a condo on Orange Beach.  I was sold!  It could not have been more fun and from that point […]
