Know what I did today? I’m going to tell you in pictures because one of those is worth a thousand words and Mama tired.
Here we go!
Many thanks to the wonderful Janene and Christine of More Than Mommies for setting up an Ohio Valley bloggers event at See’s Candies in Ross Park Mall where I got to reunite with some of my favorite local ladies and, of course, stuff my face with chocolate. Fun fact about See’s: the infamous I Love Lucy episode where Lucy shoves conveyor belt crazy chocolates in her mouth, down her shirt, and in every other orifice was filmed at See’s Candies California factory.
If you’re stopping by from the More Than Mommies Mixer, HELLOOOOOOO! If you want to hook up with us this week, click HERE to link up your blog, vlog, or social media site of your choice. Speaking of vlogs, I made one. And it sucks. I had to speak softly and lock myself in the office because my daughter was napping, and I have a cold which means I sound like a dude AND my eyes are dry so I blink like a psychopath throughout, but because I love Janene and Christine, I’m sharing it.
Oh and hey–did you enter the raffle to win free jewelry?!
Okay, to the vlog we go. I like pumpkin, hate the California Raisins, and my emergency c-section was scary, yo. Enjoy.

I think you sound sexy, and it’s not just because I know you have chocolate.
I’m on to you. You know this isn’t a chocolate giveaway, right? 😉

TWO years? That’s rough. That’s worse than pumpkin. 😉
It’s FAR worse than pumpkin! 😉
Christine at More Than Mommies says
You sounded much better today chica–but you did not sound like a man. Ha! I would pay to see a picture of you in the raisin costume…those thing were frightening!!!
Well, thanks! And they WERE creepy!! Big white-handed SOBs, singing everywhere…

OMG I love See’s. I was driving through LA once and suddenly there was a sign for “See’s Factory Store”. I almost had a car accident trying to pull over immediately.
I hope you succeeded. In pulling over, not wrecking.
Stephanie @ Mommy, for real. says
I sound like a dude today, too. And I teach music classes for a living. 🙁 Laryngitis is a bitch. But chocolate! Yay! Yum! Vlogs are so fun…
Could you just play your man voice off as a sexy, sultry type of singer thing? 😉
I am jealous. That is all. Well, no, maybe more…WHY DIDN’T YOU INVITE ME?? Still love you though, so it’s cool…;)
I’m eating a piece of chocolate right now (dark, with caramel) and sending you love. That counts, right?
Fact: I could NEVER EVER do that. I would have eaten EVERY SINGLE PIECE OF CANDY there. I LOVE SEE’S candy!! Looks like a ton of fun though!
It was hard, but after a while, I thought I was going to explode. So that made it easier to stop 🙂
P.S. You look amazing. I’m pretty sure that by this time last year I was already massive.
Awww, thanks, Mama! Maybe it was the camera angle? And the fact that I hadn’t gorged myself on dinner right before the picture!

When I went to CA this summer, I made a special trip to a delapidated mall where a Sees candy shop still stands amongst the ruin of kiosk-hell. I then purchased The Sees and shipped them home in a separate box scheduled to arrive the same day I came home. Because, I crazy and because, SEES!
Also, you are adorable.
That is an EXCELLENT idea! So all that chocolate-y goodness was just waiting for you! And thank you for your compliment!
Dani Ryan says
1. That candy looks DELISH.
2. How do you look that good pregnant?!
3. My mother made me be a nurse every single year when I was a kid. Every. Single. Year. It scarred me.
4. I hope you’re feeling better!
Stephanie Jankowski says
1. It was.
2. It’s the camera angle. Trust me 🙂
3. Every year? Dang mom!
4. I’m still stuffy, but I guess that’s common when with child. Pardon me while I blow my nose. Again.
