Thoughts on extreme couponing, an Anya quote and my favorite pork tenderloin recipe. You know, the usual.

Demystifying My Feminine Mystique

I blogged in great detail about our Disney trip (of course I did) so feel free to check that out if you're interested in my pic spam and Mouse tips! We paid for the trip (plus dining plan) and bought souveniers beforehand (except for some Disney only potato head accessories) and the only thing we used money for at the parks were gratuities! Good, affordable times.

New blog post! Dedicated to one of my favorite things ever: Boobs, their health and support and something about egg cups.

Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out

The Things:

  • Thank you to everyone who checked out my new blog and commented or liked it on Facebook. I was overwhelmed by the response to my dorkdom. Hearts!

  • We are leaving for Walt Disney World in 2 days! It's like the Mother Ship is calling me home!

  • Jonah picked out a hot pink Jeep Cherokee stroller to traverse the parks and is taking his plush Daisy Duck as his Plus One. Between tooling around in a hot pink ride with a duckette wearing lavender and pearls and being super excited about Cinderella's castle, I think my almost 4 year old boy is giving a big FU to traditional gender roles. Can I get a what-what? Of course, his mother will be standing alongside with precisely placed highlights, turquoise glitter polish (looks like town to me) and inches of tanned legs between short-shorts and platforms, looking like a fresh tube of lip gloss on Christmas morn, but we're both keeping it real.

  • I have been KNOCKED OUT by "Game of Thrones" and "Mad Men" this season, but woefully underwhelmed by HIMYM. I don't watch a lot of comedies (Community, 30 Rock, HIMYM & Big Bang) but when I'm finding Ted my favorite character, I think something's gone wonky.

  • My husband finished another semester of his doctoral program with a 4.0 for the semester -- his Admin in Higher Ed class was kicking his butt, super tough prof -- and now he only has 4 semesters to go and of course the dissertation. I'm incredibly proud of him as he balances his assoc dean / professor duties in a single income family and still has time to be an involved father and read everything I write and listen to what I overheard at the gym every day.

  • WHY did none of you tell me about "Revenge"??? I watched all aired 20 eps over 2 days. OMG the tawdry fabulous! I also caught up on "Girls" on HBO, and I have thoughts on it, but it needs its own post when I'm not packing and cleaning at the same time.

  • "The Avengers," in case you haven't heard, kicks massive ass. I don't know what Joss Whedon's thing is with schwarma ("I mean, what's that all about? It's a big meat hive!") but I like it. Oh, and if you've seen The Avengers, read this: Avengers Dissemble by [ profile] spuffyduds

  • Hi! Hi! I'm tripping protein bars and lots of Omega 3!

    I have started a new Wordpress blog I have whimsically titled "Beyond Beans 'n' Tators" where I will share recipes and my healthy eating journey, as well as post the random observations that blurt onto my keyboard (see above re: blog). Each post will have a low-fat or healthy recipe I have vetted and things I've found useful in getting healthy, active and losing weight.

    If you'd be willing to check it out and maybe leave a comment on at least the inaugural post, especially if I have poured piles of squeeing feedback on your fic and kitten posts for years (haha, shameless emotional manipulation) I would greatly appreciate. However, if you hate food and awesome, I get that, too.
