It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

              Greenery, stockings and lights!     We made our own wreath this year. Yes, everything on it is covered in glitter. As Liberace said, "Too much of a good thing is wonderful!" Tiny Christmas tree! And finally . . .when La and I decided we wanted to have... Continue Reading →



For all the bitching I do in this blog, I must come across as a real spoiled asshole. Sorry about that. Since it's Thanksgiving week here in the good ol' US of A, I thought I would do a little thankfulness post. With pictures. Because more images usually equals less brattiness, amiright? So, here is...

She busted out of Avon and headed west to Los Angeles where she met her BFF and got her BFA,... Continue Reading →

IUI #2 – Follicles, Ahoy!

After a few days of nervous nellying about the positive OPK, it finally showed today at 1pm, coming in just under the freak out wire. Dr. Cover Girl had told me to call if I hadn't gotten a positive by this morning - which I didn't - but I decided to try one last time... Continue Reading →
