Hello lovely readers and Happy Thanksgiving to those folks in the USA!   Guys, I’ve become such a holiday junkie in my (relatively) “old” age.  I love it more and more each year!  I can’t get enough of holiday music and I usually start baking cookies as soon as Halloween is over.  I love family get togethers, holiday parties, and browsing the holiday section in every store I go into to.  The cold weather seems appropriate now and joy is in the air. Speaking of joy, I’m so happy Read more […]

Goodbye Sweet Home Chicago

My title doesn’t make a lot of sense because I left Chicago in the summer of 2013.  The goodbye is actually in reference to the condo I owned from 2009 until about a week ago!  That’s right, I recently sold my first home.  But I should back up a bit before I get into that… I didn’t have a lot of reason to discuss my junior one bedroom (studio) condominium here on Drama Happens but it’s been a huge part of my life for years.  I lived there from 2009 to 2012 and since then I’ve been renting Read more […]

DramaLite: Pregnant Lady Down

Posted by & filed under All About Me, Blushworthy, DramaLite, Humor, Pregnancy, The Wee One.

Does anyone remember the DramaLite series I started many moons ago?   I know, I barely do too, but it was a series of posts that all shared something embarrassing about me. I find it’s really important to be able to laugh at yourself, and being a klutz, I have many opportunities to do so. Let me set the scene.  I’m out to lunch with a fellow mama friend and her daughter.  We are at a restaurant in the Mall of America.  We are sitting in a booth.  The kiddos have booster seats on the inside Read more […]

A Bump and a Blue Cupcake

I have a new pregnancy symptom and it’s a weird one!!  I cannot handle anything remotely spicy or my tongue feels like it’s on fire.  Seriously, it’s like this awful burning and it becomes so distracting I can’t even finish my meal many times.  Sure, pregnancy can affect your taste buds and you may have cravings or aversions to things but this tongue on fire thing is totally new for me. Granted, I’ve never been a fan of spicy foods, I grew up on my mother’s cooking and she didn’t season a Read more […]

This Happy Bathroom

You know what I did this morning?  I showered upstairs, in the bathroom across the hall. I showered there the day before that and the day before that.  And let me tell you, it has been SO NICE. All the stress of planning for it, having construction workers, dirt, and dust in the house, disrupting The Wee One’s sleep schedule, and the financing we had to do to pay for it were completely worth it!  The value of our home has gone up as well as our happiness levels.  Win win! Let’s get to Read more […]

Our Nerdy Halloween

The Wee One sported two different looks this year for two reasons, 1) it’s fun and 2) he needed a costume to wear to his party with his fellow toddler friends because his other one didn’t make sense without The Cuz Man. First up, introducing Dr. Wee One. I was able to snap a few photos of him before he headed into post-op to meet with a patient.  He’s a very busy man you know. The Wee One loved wearing his stethoscope, which we all thought he would get annoyed with but no, he he wore Read more […]

A Bump and a Birthday

Guys, I’m running out of awkward plays on words using “bump” for blog post titles.  Remember Bumpyland or Bumptastic?  So last year, right?  Haha.  For this pregnancy each bump post will be A Bump and a something starting with the letter B.  (The first one was A Bump and a Boy, the boy because I started taking bump photos with The Wee One each week.) Sooo I feel like I should share a pregnancy symptom update like I used to do.  The thing is it all feels normal, and similar, and I’m not sure Read more […]
