I follow a blog, Cupcakes and Cashmere, and I found this past Tuesday’s post very interesting and timely to my life as well! The blogger, Emily, compared her current pregnancy to a few old wives’ tales regarding pregnancy to see how they stacked up with her experience being pregnant. Wikiepdia says old wives’ tales are an epithet used to indicate that a supposed truth is actually a superstition or something untrue, to be ridiculed.
I wanted to play along! [Read more…]
Happy Monday everyone! Hope everyone had a great weekend. I did, contrary to what part of this blog post title infers – in all honesty I am just being a tad dramatic, but let me back up. [Read more…]
Hello and Happy Friday!
One of the many things I am doing in preparation for Ava’s April arrival (how is that for alliteration!) is gradually and regularly updating our registry for her.

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. For us DMV locals, the weather this weekend was absolutely perfect, which explains why I spent most of the weekend outside. 🙂
On Saturday afternoon, Tommy and I explored Solomons Island, a small waterfront fishing village where the Patuxent River meets the Chesapeake River. It’s about 30 minutes or so south of Chesapeake Beach. Tommy and I thought the island (really more of a peninsula) was very charming. There were a lot of fun restaurants, bars, shops, and water activities available for locals and visitors. [Read more…]
