Filler

Thursday, November 7th, 2013

I feel like my head might explode with all the things I am trying to remember. Wednesday morning I realized at 7:30 am it was Caroline’s turn to bring snack to school, so we drove to the grocery store for Goldfish crackers and milk, drove home, put Evan on the bus, dropped Caroline off at school, drove down to the beach for a Christmas photo shoot, drove home to meet Evan’s half-day bus (since the LAST half day I totally forgot him – Mother Of The DECADE!!), threw him in the car, drove back to Caroline’s school for pick up, drove to the post office, drove to BJ’s for essentials (Diet Coke, cheese and milk), then finally stopped at Moe’s for lunch. LUNCH. Because all of that was before 12:30 pm.

The rest of this week is also half-days which means more racing around to make it to pick up, plus my parent-teacher conference on Friday. I have two newborn clients I’m just waiting to become outside babies so I can schedule their sessions, a handful of families to do Christmas photos for, a cool press event in NYC on Monday and a husband who is about to go into shift work that will last probably the rest of the year. ALL OF 2013. I’m not sure I’ll survive it with my sanity, let alone with a house that doesn’t look like a tornado hit it, because that’s what it looks like now. Like a storm of boxes and My Little Ponies and couches rained down on my family room. I made the mistake of building Evan a “city” out of empty Amazon boxes and now I can’t throw any of them away or he freaks out. Smooth move, genius. Let’s turn trash into something we have to keep!

Because posts about how I am SO BUSY and don’t have time to blog are boring, I will make it up to you with a video of Caroline from a couple weekends ago. The kids are obsessed with the Cups song and E is pretty proud of himself for knowing how to do it, so this actually happens a lot around here. And don’t try to tell her she’s doing it wrong, she won’t believe you.

Happy Friday!

Friday, May 25th, 2012

I have a very busy and exciting weekend planned – right after I get my upstairs bathroom cleaned for my house guest because YIKES – so today I leave you with vintage video of 8 month old Baby Evan (remember when he was Baby Evan? Awwwww!).

And before you call me a bad person for letting him torture the cat like that, remember she has four perfectly good and working legs and could WALK AWAY at any point. Maybe I should have taught her about wise choices.

Spontaneous Vlogging

Thursday, May 10th, 2012

So yesterday I watched Mandy & Harper’s adorable vlog and decided to do one with Evan. I mean, how hard could it be to get my 3 year old to be cute on command? Yeah…not so much. But Caroline is a good trained monkey baby and I managed to get a couple minutes worth sharing, even if you also get my epic eye-roll when I ask Evan not to spit food on me. Also, please note my paint-splattered sweatshirt with the neck cut off and third day unwashed hair. I am the HEIGHT of sophistication and class.

I Tumble For Ya

In case you were wondering, no you DIDN’T win my Leading Lady bra giveaway because NO ONE won my Leading Lady bra giveaway because I totally forgot to pick a winner. And since I’ve still got the Head & Shoulders giveaway going on AND I’ll have another one up next week (it’s super cute, definitely come back) I should probably clear my giveaway-calendar now. So get ready! Someone’s boobs are gonna look rockin’!

The winner is, commenter #12, MeganTBeach! Yah, Megan! I will pass your email on to Leading Lady so hopefully you’ll hear from them soon and can get the bra of your dreams.

And because everyone who ISN’T Megan is totally bored with this post now, here’s two minutes of my kids attempting to do somersaults. Apologies for my insanely loud/screechy voice.

In which I join a meme everyone else has already abandoned

Thursday, October 13th, 2011

So apparently the accent vlog meme started amongst a bunch of bloggers going to The Blathering (which sounds awesome BTW – it’s just friends hanging out and getting coffee and drinking cocktails, minus the sponsors and the drama of a conference). I found other people’s vlogs super interesting and enjoyed hearing them speak words from their faces, so here’s my contribution.

Please to enjoy my awkwardness for the next eleven minutes*:

bebehblog’s accent vlog from Suzanne Davis on Vimeo.

 

To play along:

Say the following words:
Aunt, route, wash, oil, theatre, iron, salmon, caramel, fire, water, sure, data, ruin, crayon, toilet, New Orleans, pecan, both, again, probably, spitting image, Alabama, lawyer, coupon, mayonnaise, syrup, pajamas, caught

And answer these questions:
What is it called when you throw toilet paper on a house?
What is the bug that curls into a ball when you touch it?
What is the bubbly carbonated drink called?
What do you call gym shoes?
What do you say to address a group of people?
What do you call the kind of spider that has an oval-shaped body and extremely long legs?
What do you call your grandparents?
What do you call the wheeled contraption in which you carry groceries at the supermarket?
What do you call it when rain falls while the sun is shining?
What is the thing you use to change the TV channel?

*I know, that is RIDICULOUSLY long but I didn’t realized it until I was done and I didn’t feel like doing it for a FIFTH time. I will not be at ALL insulted if you skip this altogether.
