Category: Obsessions

Five on Friday

I don’t watch a lot of TV anymore so it’s rare for me to fall so hard over a show, but now I’m permanently stalking the CBC website waiting for each new episode of Season 3.

Obsessing over …

… baby tights! … I swear, it seems every SINGLE day since Saturday I have thought of 5,447 more reasons I am excited about having a girl. TIGHTS! TIGHHHHHHTS! Tights with SHOES printed on them!

Obsessed

You would THINK that since I blogged yesterday about Baby Boy behaving in public, that he’d actually prove me wrong and be a total angel. But no. Last night’s family gathering was … trying. Baby Boy had a too-short afternoon nap, which left him…

Diet Coke … for pregnant chicks!

It’s no secret that throughout this pregnancy, I have been missing my #1 fave drink — Diet Coke. Like really missing it. I have always drank Diet Coke, even when I was a kid — don’t judge my ‘rents, it was just what we…

I think this is becoming an issue

Thursday, October 15, 2009 6 WEEKS, 4 DAYS PREGNANT It’s official: zee baby is a fruit addict, and my life now revolves around smoothies. Cold, delicious, fruity, frosty smoothies — slurped up by a straw. Seriously. I’m a junkie, always hunting for a fix….

One trend I’m keeping up with …

I have always been late to get on board with the current popular movie, book, food — anything. Always. I didn’t read Confessions of a Shopaholic until I’d endured about two years of people telling me what a fun book it is. I have…

Makin’ a list, checkin’ it twice

I had a reader request to explain my handy-dandy grocery shopping lists, so I thought I would share them with you. I just created these templates a month ago, but they’ve been lifesavers so far. It has helped me save money, stop wasting food,…

She’s nothing like the rest of us

Belle: Good Morning! I’ve come to return the book I’ve borrowed! Book shop clerk: Finished already? Belle: Oh, I couldn’t put it down. Got anything new? Book shop clerk: Not since yesterday! Yesterday, totally by accident, I discovered the most wonderful used bookstore. And it is…

Actually, her namesake is a vampire …

Hello, bloggie friends! I hope you had a lovely Mother’s Day weekend. I spent Saturday night with Mom and Little Sis, and it was there that my new obsession was born. Not a very original obsession, unfortunately: Twilight. I know, I know. I am…

You know you want to watch

Just remembered that tonight is the season finale of Jon & Kate Plus Eight, so tune into TLC! If the scary previews and internet rumors are anything to go by, it looks like there is trouble in tot-town. Could Jon and Kate really be splitting…

Intervention!

I think everyone is addicted to something that is bad for them. Cigarettes, wine, coffee, etc. Really, addictions are only to bad things — no one ever complains of an addiction to green apples. Mine is Diet Coke. I started young, probably around age 7…
