We had such a wonderful trip to Chicago this past weekend and I’ve been looking forward to sharing it with you guys.  The Scottish and I usually attempt to fit as much as possible into our two day and this time was no different.  Besides our baby shower and our maternity photo shoot, we spent time with my nanny family, many of our good friends, and lastly our beloved city.  I don’t want to write about it to death but instead I want to share some special moments through photographs.  Like this Read more […]

Today’s post is part of the monthly Remember the Time blog hop!  The theme for this week is birthday memories.  The blog hop badge recently got a makeover too, check it out at the bottom of this post.  Isn’t it cute? I love birthdays, or rather, I love the idea of birthdays.  In actuality they can be stressful due to many factors, and our expectations can be difficult to control, and then sometimes they can be disappointing which is why thinking and dreaming about your birthday is sometimes Read more […]

A Closer Look: Married to a Man, Almost Married to a Woman

Posted by & filed under Blogging, Interviews, Marriage, Not the Norm, Partnerships, Relationships General.

Today’s interview is with fellow Bee blogger and friend of mine Kari, aka Miss Tiara on Weddingbee.  She is one of those people you could talk to for hours about anything because she’s just so likable and smart.  It’s clear to me Kari’s past relationships do NOT define her, so why am I asking her to talk about them?  Well, besides the fact that I believe gay marriage should be treated as any other marriage instead of being glorified or condemned, I also feel we need to hear more from people Read more […]

called or visited your grandparents?  Oh yea, it’s THAT kind of post. I know, I know, we all get busy, life gets in the way, we have our own baby families, and time just flies.  I get why its so difficult, I really do. But I also believe that there is enough time in life to fit in what is important.  It’s about priorities. Grandparents are AWESOME, aren’t they?  We grow up around these fun older human beings who shower us with love and gifts and delicious treats, and then as we age, Read more […]

It’s Friday people!  It’s actually above freezing outside, and even though we didn’t get a house we put an offer on (boo!), good things are happening!  It’s been quite a week for my little family… For starters, The Scottish turned 30!  And we had a wonderful time celebrating. The finishing touches are being made to the first release of the new Drama Happens website  (my baby who predates McKenna and The Wee One), and we’re thinking the changes will be ready to share by next week! It’s Read more […]

Guys, my hubby turned 30 yesterday!  He’s finally joined me on the dark side.  Because he’s a hard-working guy, not only did he work on his birthday but he worked late!  But don’t feel too bad for him, he got two free meals and our family, (including my BFF) celebrated with him this past Sunday.  While it wasn’t a crazy night out of drinking, I can confidently say he had a great time. We started the afternoon Skyping with his Mum and Dad in Scotland while opening gifts.  The Scottish Read more […]

I mean really, no one should be surprised.  It was bound to happen.  Especially after a year of wedding planning together and having that go SO eerily well, we were due for a mutual meltdown. It doesn’t really matter how it started or how it ended but that it was productive.  If you don’t have a sister, I will enlighten you for a moment.  Sisters hold each other to such high standards that it becomes nearly impossible to not disappoint each other.  There is no room for error or ease because Read more […]

You Know You’re TTC When…

No one has asked us if we wanted to get pregnant or if it was a surprise (thankfully) because I guess I haven’t been very quiet about my desire to start a family, both in person and on the blog.   Another question that’s considered rude to ask is, “How long did it take you to conceive?”  But it’s not rude if I just come out and tell you!  And of course I’ll tell you guys because I’m a chronic over-sharer and it doesn’t make me uncomfortable.  I don’t believe fertility should be a taboo topic, Read more […]

First off, THANK YOU for all the well wishes and page views following my baby announcement.  It appears there is interest in baby related drama, so while it won’t be all pregnancy posts all the time, it’s good to know I can share what I’ve been saving up my sleeve.  Thanks for the love readers! So I know I’m not the first blogger to share hilarious and awkward phrases that people use to stumble upon blogs, but it’s just too funny to ignore them.  I figure I could do a post like this once a Read more […]

An Extrovert Gets a Lesson in Lonlieness

Me at 26 Me at 26

I was inspired to write this post after re-reading my interview with S from last week.  It intrigued me when S explained how much she loved to be alone.  I couldn’t relate at all and started to feel a bit strange about that. I know many of my girlfriends relish their time alone.  And don’t get me started on men.  Yes, this is a gross generalization but tell me it’s not true?!?!  Men LOVE their alone time.  Video games, movies, browsing the internet, playing on their phone, doing NOTHING.
