(Cue balloons and confetti… oh, and presents are OK, too!) Hooray for my 100th post!! Woooo! Well, we’ll just pretend this is my 100th post. It’s actually 102, but this has been a thoroughly crappy week so I blew right past it. Today, however, is a better day. 😀 I started my blog in March,…

My First Mother's Day: Part 2

img_1384

I had an utterly lovely Mother’s Day weekend! But then, who wouldn’t love a weekend full of rainbows and  miracles? (Slight) Miracle #1: Imagine my surprise when, after my lasagna-induced bloatfest on Saturday night, I slipped right into my too-small jeans on Sunday morning! Those suckers were too small before I was pregnant!  Yay for…
