The Quest For The Perfect Mascara

Untitled design

Basically my entire adult life I have been searching for the perfect mascara. I’ve found some decent ones, ones I hated, ones I loved. But none were “The One.” I never leave my house without mascara, like ever. I will go without lip gloss, blush, eyeshadow, eyeliner, etc., but never mascara. So it’s pretty important [...]

Is That Weird?

I lie about my due date

When strangers ask me when I’m due I lie about when I’m due. I watch A LOT of crime shows. Snapped and Deadly Women (and pretty much anything on ID Discovery) are amongst my favorites. Since this is the programming I prefer I have seen a few shows where various pregnant women get kidnapped and [...]

Home Owning Update!


Closing is quickly approaching, and I have tons of new pictures of my house! But the best part is that it is no longer mint green!   This is good for a number of reasons… Number one being that I don’t have to listen to Boris bitch about the color mint green anymore. Dead serious [...]

I Am Almost 38 Weeks Pregnant

Lessons In Home Buying


So I mentioned that we are building our very first home (which is obviously super exciting). It’s a little difficult because we are in MD and the builder and everyone is down in GA. This means a lot of picking things I haven’t seen in person. And let’s be clear I am the main decision [...]

Am I Supposed To Care About My Pubes While Pregnant?

Grooming While Pregnant

This seems to be a recurrent topic amongst my fellow pregnant women: how are you maintaining the hair on your (insert euphemism for vagina). Any message board for pregnant women will have this topic. The answers are amazing, people let their husbands shave their vaginas. I love my husband but feel like our child will [...]

My Top 10 New Baby Must Haves

1. Rock n Play   Dead serious, we got this when Karina was 5 weeks old, and the first day we had it was the first time she slept through the night. 2. SwaddleMe or swaddle blankets (I sprang for some Aden + Anais this time, and am so excited to try them) 3. Baby [...]
