I'm blogging...

It's 4:30.
Not really a big whoop right, 
well it's 4:30 in the morning.
And I'm blogging.

I had this huge epiphany that I could accomplish many a great things after I got my entire family back to bed since either one or both of my babes are teething and the Daddy is sick.

So here I am. Saying hello to you all. I feel like I've neglected this part of my life far too long.
It's just been a crap storm over here, and I am so beyond over it that I ugly cry about it.

Hopefully my appointment next week will resolve some of these ongoing issues with pain, because I am so tired feeling like I've been kicked in the stomach or my insides are about to fall out.

Blech, enough with the imagery. 

To make up for it, here is Buddy the elf.

PS:  I had this in my head to the tune of his song,
"I'm's 4:30 and I'm blogging"
I should go to bed.


a color coded Christmas [a gift guide for the Mamas]

I'm obsessed with plum this season, 
& I am the furthest from a purple lover as you can get...
but there is just something about plum that has me swooning.

My absolute favorite plum must-have of the season [especially for all you Mamas of multiples] is a TWELVElittle Allure Weekender in plum. This bag is magical. Ginormous, but with pockets galore so you aren't searching a cavernous black hole of a bag, and the color?! It's perfection. I also love the options of a longer shoulder strap or shorter ones. I really can't rave enough about it, from the storage to the leather detail--I do hope you find one underneathe your Christmas tree this year!

(Hopefully I'll have a couple plum colored goodies beneathe mine...hint, nudge, hint)
