I'm all ah-twitter!
I never thought I'd see the day.
Actually, I've had my account for a few weeks now.
We've just been taking this whole relationship thing slow,
Mr. Twitter and I.
His hashtags intimidate me.

But he has finally wined and dined me over, (via a new iPhone).
The real "he" being Daniel, of course.
His muscles twitterpate me.

Baby Bump and Bling Bling

{22 weeks}

Blog world, meet Bumpy McBumperson.
A wild and crazy weekend filled with Russian food and funfetti cake was the secret to his growth success.

Also, meet my new dangly feathery golden hoops of beautifulness.
Lindsi and I had a photo shoot yesterday, full of her gorgeous custom pieces.
She's kind of amazing.
I just stood there, hoping some of the amazing would rub off on me.

{pictures coming soon, of course!}

Too Tired to Do the Whole Picture Thing

Blog blog bloggity blog bloggggggg! I just love blogging so much, I can't get enough!
{lack of sleep+a story=this post}

You might be thinking, "Bon Bon is posting more consistently again, hooray!"
You might also be thinking, "Bon Bon is posting more 3AM...hooray?"

Well, you'd probably post a little something something too. After spending the past 5 hours soaking up Old Faithful's eruption.
(Old Faithful, in this case=water heater)

Baby Bean heard his fair share of bad words tonight.

Someday we'll laugh about this.

Actually, we already have. The visual of poor Daniel in his underwear trying to shut off the water will forever be etched onto my funny bone.

I've Never Been a Cheerleader

{field of dreams}

That time of year is upon us.
Softball season #4!
It's pretty low-key.
{until the championship...which we are. The champions, that is}
Yesterday, the pitcher was holding a beer and eating a hot dog. and pitching.
This is where amazing happens, people.

I did have a moment of weakness.
Being pregnant doesn't mean you live under a rock, I said.
You should feel alive. Do some normal competitive life stuff.
Bat. Run. Catch things.
I can make a double-play and grow a human at the same time. What.

And then one of our teammates collided with another player.
Concussion. Ambulance. Loose teeth. The works.

Moment of weakness gone.

P.S. Both players were back on the field yesterday. With all of their teeth.

Better Than the Original

{funny friends}

These guys make me laugh. Plain and simple.

And, this video pretty much sums up my own brief experience with energy supplements.

BonBon+200mgcaffeine+60gsugar+donuts+school@7AM= Regret. and Shame.

Hot or Not


I was in the zone yesterday. Me vs. My Closet.
The urge to simplify my wardrobe hit me hard. And when I say simplify, I mean, make some room for a little shopping that might take place soon.

Not that I even like to wear clothes anymore, due to a certain tiny hot human constantly radiating heat into every cell and organ of my body.


{A frozen cucumber scented washcloth is my new favorite "accessory"}

But according to People of Walmart, it's socially acceptable these days to be out and about in your skivvies.

So, that's always an option.

I'm Outnumbered. Boy oh Boy!

Baby Bean is all BOY!

Pretty sure Daniel is already stockpiling every mini-basketball-football-baseball-soccer ball-anything round and can be played with in a competitive nature-ball, that he can get his hands on.

I'm all for it. Boys are fun! Growing up with all brothers, I'm used to boys. I'm comfortable with ESPN, farting, burping, wrestling, toilet seats left up, Lego City, and race cars.

And boys are such little sweethearts to the core. Melt my heart.

This is going to be fun!

Making my Parents Proud

If you haven't noticed lately, I've turned into even more of a nerd.
{And even I didn't think it was possible}
I'm not just writing about my life like a normal person, no no, I'm drawing about it now. It's a whole new level of geek over here.

A little background. I'm a doodler. I doodle. constantly. On scraps of paper. Napkins. Humans.

Especially while talking on the phone. I.must.draw.something.

So, I have decided to channel my inner Andrea del Sarto meets Charles M. Schulz into some more "productive" scribbles.

Lucky, lucky you.

My medium:
Mac Paintbrush
My inspiration: my life, your life, life in general, random musings, {the oatmeal, à la less f-bombs and general debauchery}.
My purpose: conjure up the past, define memorable experiences, visual storytelling, make myself/Daniel/family/friends laugh. Mainly making myself laugh. It happens. a lot.

Hope you enjoy!

{picture of a picture}

Here I be, during my {summer as a boy}.

This is the only one I could find in my box of photos, but my parents have more. AND it's obviously B.P. (Before Perm).

This particular picture was taken at my grandparent's house, where apparently, they forced me to wear a flower to remind them all that I really was a girl.

I look happy on the outside, but inside I'm scheming something. Some revenge on a certain hairdresser or something. You can see it in my shifty eyes.
