Closet Blogger

So I have a confession to make.  I've been keeping this blog a secret.  A secret from all my friends, my family, pretty much everyone I know with the exception of my husband.  I told him about it when I started, but that's it.  I've been keeping this whole thing separate from my day-to-day because really, who would want to read this?  It's my outlet to spew useless information out into the world.  I have no message.  No agenda.  Just me and things that invade my brain.

Raising Bookworms

Like most new parents, when my first daughter was born we started reading to her right away.  All the parenting books said to do it, all our friends said to do it - establish a routine, foster a love for reading, blah blah blah.  So we did it.  Every day.  Every night before bed.  Even when I knew deep down there was no way this baby understands wtf we're reading to her.  But we did it.  It was time to wind down for both her and for us.  Fast forward seven years later and lo and behold, it worked!  We really did foster a love for reading with our kid!!!

Because Friday!


Found this in the new items section at my local Trader Joe's.  From the Union Wine Company out of Oregon, this one here is Rosé, but they also had a Pinot Gris and a Pinot Noir.  And I can't wait to try them all!

Work, Schmerk!

Ugh, do any other WAHM go through phases of incredibly busy work-until-you-sleep weeks followed by days where you just don't want to do a thing?  Because that is where I am right now.  I want to do nothing.  Seriously.
