Town Lake

Jon and I are in Austin, Texas for SXSW and this was a scene on the lake right outside our hotel room this morning. Beautiful day today, in the eighties, and we’re about to head out and take a few gigs worth of photos. The sun on my face is going to feel like one [...]


The secret to getting both of them to sit still like this simultaneously? String cheese.

Abbreviated exclamation point

I would normally wait until I had enough hatemail to write a longer post, but the one I got this morning is just too good to keep to myself. From a reader who skipped class the day they talked about punctuation: youre no one but a slut who loves to fuck her husband and get [...]


In the last month whenever Chuck sees that it’s sunny outside he wanders over to the back door, stares at it blankly, and waits for us to notice so that we will let him out. And then he’ll walk out onto the deck and stand there confused, like wait a minute, I thought it was [...]

I think the kids are calling it SQUEE!

Blossoms! Or at the very least the beginnings of blossoms! This means it’s almost spring which means I’m closer to my due date which means before you know I get to drink bourbon again!

26 weeks

Yesterday marked my 26th week of pregnancy and to celebrate I thought I’d forego the usual sports bra: I never thought I’d say this, but I can’t wait to have my little boobs back. And I know it will be months if not years (IF EVER) until I am reunited with them, but these are [...]


UPDATE: Reader Anne writes to tell me that she’s found my earrings in the sale section at Anthropologie: Lluvia Earrings $19.95 Thanks, Anne! Several readers have written to ask where I bought the dangly gold earrings I’m wearing on my about page and in various episodes of Momversation, and unfortunately I purchased them last November [...]

Poor imitation of a Botticelli

There’s nothing special about this particular photograph, I just thought the dogs were positioned in a way that resembled a Renaissance painting. Coco just needs to be showing a small patch of pale, fleshy boob and Chuck should be looking upward toward a light in the sky with a look on his face that suggests [...]

E 51st St

I believe those spires are the ones sticking up from St. Patrick’s Cathedral in midtown Manhattan. We had absolutely no free time to walk around and take photographs, but I’m guessing that if Jon and I ever moved to New York we’d have to buy a separate studio apartment just to hold the terabytes upon [...]

Enormous pregnant lady eats Manhattan

Rarely do I ever feel as vulnerable as when I’m using the toilet on an airplane, and I think it has everything to do with someone trying to figure out how to talk about where they found my body if the plane should crash. Like, I’d rather be the one they found still in her [...]
