It's Decorative Gourd Season


Sorry for the absence. I've been swamped with work and watching Gilmore Girls and parenting and watching Gilmore Girls.

I'm telling a story tomorrow night for The Porch in SLC. Eli from It Just Gets Stranger is the night's featured story teller. Eli's blog is everything a blog should be and is easily one of my favorite places on the internet. So even if my story is a total stinker, it will still be an event worth attending. Tickets available here.

Stephen and I are heading on a babymoon. Just Stephen and I. No Ivy. Half of me is looking forward to a week of napping and seeing movies and not answering the question "What are you doing?" 237 times a day. The other half is feeling like the worst mother in the world and like I can't survive a week without my child and I'm asking so many what ifs that I'm about five minutes from having to breathe into a paper bag. She'll be in the very capable hands of her grandparents who have collectively raised seven children, and she'll enjoy being spoiled rotten far more than she'd enjoy a beach, but STILL. My baby. But also naps. And diet cokes by the pool. And reading eight books. She'll be fine, right? She'll be fine.

Because we're leaving on a jet plane and LEAVING OUR KILLER DOGS HERE AND THE ALARM SYSTEM WITH LAZERS ON, I probably will forget won't have time to blog about Halloween. But I would never deprive you of photos of my kid in a costume.

Or photos of my dog in a costume.

Or my favorite Halloween video.


  1. dude. I'd never watched Gilmore Girls, but your tweet a few weeks ago about 90s fashion pushed me over the edge. just started season two.

  2. It still bugs me that Lane got married while Luke was out of town. The man is important enough to be their kids' godfather but they can't postpone the wedding a few days so he can be there? What? My world is small.

    1. I didn't think it was possible for anyone to be further in the series than I am. Well done.

  3. I'm hooked on Gilmore Girls again, too! What a coincidence. A couple weeks ago I decided I needed a new show and could only think of Gilmore Girls. I started with Season 1 episode 1. It's made me miss my fattie friends!!


Don't be shy.
