Some non-baby-related links

I realized last night, during one of the umpteen times I was up with the baby, that although I called this blog "NOT Just Baby Brain", it's been pretty baby-centered. So to prove I can in fact think of non-baby stuff, here are some of my favourite places to go for a dose of celebrity gossip.TMZ - I hate to admit it, but I even PVR the tv show. Worse confession - my daughter adores it!Lainey Gossip - she's snarky, has great contacts, and she's Canadian. What's not to love?What Would Tyler Durden Do? Read more [...]

Tell me the truth – I can handle it

I've been playing around with a few things on the blog and I'd love your feedback - is it too busy now? Do you like the buttons at the top? Anything I should add or take away? I've been staring at it for too long now and I can't tell if it's good or not anymore :) I'm still working on something else, but I'd like to be successful at it before I mention anything - that way, if I fail, no one needs to know ;)Here's a giveaway courtesy of Natural Mommie:Win a Sublime nursing bra and matching panty set Read more [...]

I haven't done this since grade 12 (and no, I'm not telling you how long ago that was) so for all I know, things could Read more [...]

Virtual friends

Not much in the way of giveaways today (Feisty, Frugal and Fabulous has a cute Bumkins diaper bag up for grabs but I already have 4 diaper bags so I don't really need another....do I?) so I thought I'd do a real post.I've been thinking about friends a lot lately, since my husband's job has already moved us to two provinces and will soon move us to a third. Making new friends seems to get a lot harder as I get older - it was so easy when I was in school/working and saw the same people every day, Read more [...]

Happy New Year!

It's hard to believe, but 2010 is here! I hope that everyone had a lovely New Year's Eve, we didn't even make it until midnight but that's ok. Those of you with little ones understand that a late night isn't always worth it if you aren't sure the baby will sleep in!2009 just flew by for us, with moving to a new province, a new job for my husband and a new baby and I have no doubt that somehow, 2010 is going to go even faster - my husband will be getting another transfer in a few months, which means Read more [...]
