This is How We Do it....

If you've been keeping up with this site you'll have noticed two things:

1: I'm a total bummer and a whiny turd headed turd. I spent the last two months complaining about going to a wedding, which was this past weekend, and ended up having a pretty good time. Illustrated by my extremely red cheeks:

And no, I don't drink. That's the hilarious thing.

2: My posts have been sporadic and uninspired.

It's because I entered the world of grown-ups finally and have gotten a bunch of paying jobs to supplement our family's income. I'm writing and editing for three sites and working as a transcriber for two marketing companies on top of that.

Oh yeah, I'm still running my site Dork Designs! Be sure to check that out as well. I've had some pretty happy and adorable customers lately. Jen from My Tornado Alley ordered her daughters handmade bunnies for Easter bunnies and loved them! Read all about the bunnies and their journey here: A box of bunnies.

And although not this best photo ever here is my darling Meg, Libby's daughter wearing one of the tees from the Dork Designs shop:

Yes, that is a giant photo. Enjoy every pixel of cuteness.

Finally Maxine Jane turned six years old on Thursday...I was working immediately before the party and Jeremiah was in charge of making sure she was dressed appropriately for the gala (which included myself, Jeremiah, our kids and my parents, so not very gala-ish). This is what she ended up wearing:

Aside from all of that jazz, I'm also writing for Sprocket Ink! I'll have posts going up every Tuesday and Friday, but also just take a chance to peruse the site and read some other pieces, everyone is doing a great job over there and are uber entertaining.

I can tell Maxine Jane really knows how to party.

Sprocket Ink is super entertaining! Love it. Good for your and your grown-up jobs, which we can agree working pretty much blows but it's a necessary evil.

I'm definitely finding an outfit like Maxine Jane's for my next birthday!

Now I'm off to check out the shop and see what I can find for my little babe!

First, how lame is it that I love that Montel Jordan song?

Glad you had a good time at the wedding.

Happy late B-day to Max!

You are officially the busiest person I know! I counted four children, three jobs, two websites, and one wedding. Good luck with all your endeavors.

Logical Libby said...

And I thought I was busy!

Meg loves that shirt, and wants to wear it every day. I might have to order another so we can switch out for washing without fits!

Dude, I am the same freakin' way with complaining about going somewhere and then end up having an awesome time. I don't drink either. No reason really, I just don't. People don't get that it sucks being questioned about it. Your kids are so freakin' cute (happy b'day to Maxine Jane) and so are your designs.
