National Sunglasses Day/ Wordless Wednesday

Oh, come on. You know I can't be completely silent -- even on Wordless Wednesday.

Back when I wasn't blogging, I went on a cruise to attend the nuptials of two friends. (Resulting in plentiful, dramatically awesome stories to tell, but I'll save them for another day.)

For now, enjoy my two favorite cruise photos:
just a little amberleaf

the most awesome photo i've ever taken. ever!!

We have to go back! We have to go back! (LOST reference. I miss the islands.)

Happy hump day.

Query (not that kind!)

Maybe I should complete this meme.

I love Stella. Der.

People would say that I'm funny. Well, I hope they would. They might say I'm flattering myself.

I don’t understand why religion is so important.

When I wake up in the morning I hit snooze about four times, then realize the sooner I get up, the sooner coffee will be in my mouth.

I lost the necklace my mom and dad gave me when I turned 18. I think my mom's still kinda pissed.

Life is beautiful. And messy. Among other things.

My past is novel-worthy, but should probably be a closed book!

I get annoyed when I see Matthew Lillard's face on screen.

Parties are: better with cake.

I wish I had a housekeeper.

Dogs are stubbornspice. At least, mine is.

Cats are weird to me. But, I've never had one.

Tomorrow I’m going to lie to Stella's pediatrician at her 18-month well check. Because I refuse to admit that we still give her two bottles a day!

I have low tolerance for people who are rude to customer service specialists.

I’m totally terrified of death. Just sayin'.

I wonder why the caged bird sings.

Never in my life have I been on a television game show. I'd really like to change that.

High school was the time in my life when I had bangs, and curled them under. And then used hairspray.

When I’m nervous I put my hair behind my ears. It's my tell.

One time at a family gathering I let my cousins put my hair in pigtails, and then a mohawk. The cousins were about 13. I was like, 26.

Take my advice: don't get into credit card debt.

Making my bed hahahahaha. Never happens.

I’m almost always thinking about you. I swear it!

I’m addicted to caffeine, and loooooove.Ohh, and...

I want someone to pay all my bills for like, 6 months or so, while I sit in a locked room until my novel is finished.

Thank you for getting reacquainted with me today.

Just popping in to say an overdue hello to the blogging world...

Secretly, I just remembered that I can blog from work -- but I'm scared that I'll get in trouble. I already spend an obscene amount of time scouring other job opportunities, and that doesn't seem to have attracted any negative attention from the powers that be. So, I'm going to be brave.

Let me catch you up on a few things. And, by a few things, I mean Stella.

Stellaspice is a person now, as opposed to a baby. She's a full 18 months old.

She runs. She has four teeth. She can say strings of words like:

"Mommy, love you."
"Mommy, up!"
"Mommy, jump."
"More, more."
"Hi, Mommy!"
(She says other things that don't involve me. I'm pretty certain she has full-on conversations with her stuffed rabbit, Abby.)

She says "peas" instead of "please."
She says "Yell-ya" instead of "Stella."
She contantly tries to hug our dog, Carson, but whenever Carson tries to steal food from her, Stella says, "No, no, bad."

She can count to three. She can say the first three letters of her name. She knows what the following animals say: dog, kitty cat, cow, mouse, monkey, bear, lion, and duck. (FYI -- woof-woof, meow-meow-mooooo, seek-seek {squeak-squeak}ooh-ooh-aah-aah, raaahr, raaahr, and ack.)

People. Can't you see that I have no time to blog anymore because I am reponsible for the upbringing of a child prodigy?

Oh, and we watch a lot of Barney.
I mean, a LOT of Barney.

How are YOU? Please comment if you were super shocked to see a post from me, and let me know that returning to this blog is the right decision.

I mean, if you feel that way.
