Happy Monday!

I meant to post this last week, but never got around to it. The military threw us for a loop and sent my husband away for a little while, so I’m flying solo for the first time with the little one; I’m also the lucky one who gets to out-process from this base now. (You can bet I’ll write about all of that later.) We’re doing pretty well, all things considered, but if any of you feel like coming over to babysit between the hours of 3 am and 7 am so I can get some shut-eye, I won’t complain. (She’s actually delightful during those hours, all smiley, bright-eyed, and chatty…but I’d rather we slept then! Her dad has a way of instantly charming her back to sleep during those hours, but now that it’s the two of us, she wants to be up and play.)

I read a lot of blogs while I nurse, and there are so many cool things going on out there I can’t keep them to myself, so that’s why I like doing this weekly(ish) post. Hope y’all like it, too. (Yeah…I’m starting to say y’all again. It’s like my body knows it’s going back to the south soon. Yikes!)

snapshot of the week:
She’s so rocking those aviators.
lovely links:

still digging:

feedly. Y’all (ack! There it is again!) need to jump on board with this now that Google Reader is going bye-bye. I’ve heard from a lot of people that they don’t care for bloglovin’ (I’m one of them), but this service is wonderful. They have an app that syncs with the desktop version, several different styles/themes to choose from, and you can save posts to read later (which is great if you’re a nursing mom, reading blogs on your phone—I save the posts I want to comment on later). I really dig Feedly and want more people to love it, too. How are you following blogs these days?

last week on the blog:
five facts…and then some 

shameless plug:
Someone nominated me for Circle of Mom’s Top 25 Military Mom bloggers! So, if you like this blog, I’m politely begging asking for your vote. Voting is ridiculously easy—no registration required and you don’t even have to fill out a stupid captcha. Just click here, then click on the little pink heart that says “vote.” Easy peasy and you can vote once a day 🙂 Grazie!

three things making me happy now:
baby giggles (can’t get enough of them!)
vanilla nut creamer in my french vanilla coffee
the rain that’s cooling things off around here 

Happy Monday!  
(What’s making you happy today?)


  1. Love the pic! Hang in there friend! Load up on coffee and wine and be sure to watch a girly movie while the little one naps.

  2. Were you as intimidated as I was the first time alone with the baby? Sky was gone for AT, and the first couple days of just Millie and I scared me, lol. I guess I ended up getting the hang of it, though. 🙂
