My child is breech. Again.

So remember when I said that this child is stubborn?

Well, I wasn’t lying.

He flipped. Again.

Which means we’re on a one track train towards c-section-ville.

Don’t worry, I’ve still got five pieces of entertainment for ya today:

1. The season finale of Honey Boo Boo (which I literally just got done forcing my hubs to watch with me) was pretty epic. If you consider kiddie Glitz pageants to be…you know…epic. Okay, let’s be honest: it’s…

Here it is in all it’s glory – and just so that you know, this IS a huge batch on it’s own.

Another weekend without a baby appearance...

Well…that whole 35 percent chance of having the baby by Monday night isn’t looking so promising anymore! The kid is still cooking – and KICKING – in my belly. Which I really don’t think could possiblyget any bigger than it is right now!

But since the babe didn’t make his big appearance this weekend, I definitely got to check out the season finale of the Real Housewives of New Jersey – did you? It was pretty fantabulous – although slightly sad to see everyone’s…

39 weeks pregnant and time to issue this child an eviction notice!

“I’m having contractions (sob) and they REALLY HURT!”...Continue reading at …

Work from home guide: how to set up a functional office

So you guys know that I office from my house – and being able to do this is one of the biggest reasons why I absolutely love my job.

How I Became Mrs. Galster: Chapter Sixteen

The only problem? An unforeseen snowstorm that hit the entire state that night.

Here’s the thing about having a husband that runs a commercial snow crew: if it snows, he’s on. It doesn’t matter if we’re several hundred miles away on a weekend getaway. Snow = hubby’s on the phone. A lot. So while this little mama may have been ready to hit the hay, Ricky’s phone had different ideas for our night. Basically that it was going to go off every twenty minutes until six am...Continue reading…
