Mardi Gras!!!

UPDATE: I believe I have fixed that awful issue where none of you could see the pics. Let me know if you are still having trouble.

We had a great trip this year. On the way home, Dave and I agreed it was one of our best ever. Once again, some photos for you:



    Lunchtime jokes. Help!

    Cammy gets lunch at school these days (note: it’s super convenient to be able to log on to his account, check his lunch activity, and say, “Dude. You cannot survive on french fries and Uncrustables”). The girls, however, still pack lunches. And by that I mean that I pack their lunches. Yes, they absolutely […]

      Friday Bullet Blog

      Since the Winterpocalypse of 2015 is now over (and since I abandoned my former gym, because it moved to a new location and the layout is terrible), I am absolutely dying to get outside and run. So Dave– because, as my friend Jimmy was kind enough to point out, he is the best husband […]

        New Year’s Diet Resolutions? I’m Here to Help!

        Often, people will ask me if I’m a vegetarian. And actually: no, I am not. But I think I could easily stop eating meat– as long I could still have eggs and dairy. Dairy because 1. cream in my coffee; 2. chai lattes (and I do not want to hear about the soy milk option); […]

          Never Forget Marney

          We completed most of our Thanksgiving cooking last night. Mom came over this morning for breakfast casserole, I went for a lovely but chilly run, and now we’re just taking our time, getting ourselves together for later today. It’s a nice, relaxing way to spend a holiday and I’m grateful.

          I’m going to guess […]

            You Probably Don’t Want to See This Chart.

            With the exception of the year when we were living in the city and I accidentally dumped Cameron’s entire trick-or-treat haul into the wet gutter, we wind up with ridiculous amounts of Halloween candy each year. And then my willpower ebbs slowly away as I face legions of Snickers and Kit Kats in […]

              Anniversary Dave Trivia

              This is how Dave looked, picking me up from the airport last month. Look how happy he is. I love him.

              Our wedding anniversary is this week. It’s not really a milestone, unless you like the number 16 because it has a nice even square root (I’m looking at you, Maia). In the […]

                Gabby Knows What’s Up.

                This would be me, standing next to the car.




                The kids and I were catching up on our Face Off episodes (we’ve gotten really good at armchair special effects makeup design) when a Doritos commercial came on. I couldn’t manage to find it on The Interwebs, but in the commercial, […]

                  “Birth-Father’s Day,” as Cam Called It.

                  ….And no, Cam doesn’t have a foster father or a stepfather or an adoptive father. Yesterday was Dave’s birthday as well as Father’s Day, so Cam combined the two all day. I had asked Dave what he wanted to do yesterday– we were out of town overnight on Friday and would be returning home […]

                    The Secret Vegan

                    BUT I’M NOT!!!

                    GABBY: Mom, are you a vegan?

                    JULIE: …..No?

                    CAM: See, I told you. She’s just a vegetarian.

                    JULIE: I’m not a vegetarian either.

                    GABBY: But you, like, never eat meat. And you never want sausage on your pizza.

                    CAM [scornfully]: And you always order, like, veggie subs.

                    JULIE: Well, […]
