alien photo

This is a picture of our baby at nine weeks. Wait. Did I tell you we’re having a baby? Oh. Well in case I forgot to mention it… we’re having a baby in April! So Rob helpfully put a red box around the baby in the picture, since there was some disagreement about its exact location. I won’t tell you which one of us was wrong and which one was right.
We should have another picture at the end of November. Hopefully by then, the baby will look less like an alien peanut and more like a regular alien.

so close to calling in ugly

My doctor has recommended removing products with salicylic acid from my skin care regimen. So I gave up my great Clean & Clear astringent for Dickinson's witch hazel which smells really bad and doesn’t seem to do a thing for me. And I gave up my awesome life-saving Aveeno Clear Complexion moisturizer for a non-complexion clearing version. And guess what? My skin looks like hell. I am approaching my very first 29th birthday, and I have the skin of a hormone raging teenager.

So does anyone have any recommendations for products that keep your skin clear, but don’t contain harsh ingredients like salicylic acid?

I was walking through the parking garage after work yesterday and my car didn't seem to be where I remembered leaving it. And I had this moment of panic when I thought my car must have been stolen.

And then I realized, "wait, why would someone steal my car?"

Cupcake Courier

Oh, and this isn't on my wishlist, but I totally need one.


Did you know my birthday is only one week away? Aren't you glad I have a wishlist?

In honor of my friend Brian making his very first journey through the "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" DVDs, I'm listing my favorite top 13 episodes. I actually tried really hard to whittle this down to a top ten. I simply couldn't do it.

"Once More With Feeling"
"Something Blue"
"Graduation Part 1
/Graduation Part 2"

"The Gift"
"The Prom"
"Fool for Love"
"The Body"
"Prophecy Girl"

Back from Montana.

We returned from our Montana adventure very late last night. The wedding was beautiful, the weather was gorgeous and the mountains were amazing. I was hardly near a computer for a solid week which means I didn't even have a headache (And is also why I didn't jump on the whole Suri Cruise thing. Duh Sally.)

Pictures anyone?
