I blame the internet.

08 September 2014

AH! It's Monday. And I've had a potty training post hanging around at the tippy top for two too many days now.

Shame
on
me.

I should have a little something something to post here but .... no. I was busy figuring out how to put the cover back on Phoebe's car seat after washing it (straps! buckles! why did I not take a picture before I tore it apart?!), hitting up Costco for the usual weekly staples + black bean spaghetti noodles (Simon is going to be TICKLED), and um ... Googling the Taylor Swift/Selena Gomez feud which somehow landed me on Justin Bieber's Instagram and the internet is the worst.


... and the best. Because I do have these fun things to share with you and yours this afternoon:

My mom, my youngest sister, Sarah, my aunts, AND my grandma (I'm sure my invitation got lost in the mail, sure of it!) all flew out to Atlantic City today to watch my cousin (Sierra! Go Miss Idaho!!) compete in the Miss America pageant. I think there's still time to vote for her in the People's Choice competition so ... if you're feeling extra generous ... I think it takes two clicks. Thanks if you do, and thanks if you don't!

I'm still on my Friday Night Lights kick and am thoroughly enjoying round two with the Panthers especially after I watched Season 1, Episode 5 this time around. I spotted my blog friend turned real life friend, Indiana, giving Smash the eyes. I knew she was an extra on the show but it was cool to see and recognize her this time around. She wrote a ridiculous post about how Coach Taylor trumps Tim Riggins and even has a little vote going .... so help a brother out.

I'm guessing you already saw this exciting bit of news but I'm SO excited for Jen. I had the pleasure of meeting her in real life and she's just as engaging and witty in person as she is on her blog so the air waves are in for a real treat.

Did you notice my new header? The talented Jolie over at Brim Papery whipped that up for me. Love her. {I was a paying customer ... worth every penny!}

Is it just me or have you noticed that a lot of people seem to be blogging less? I'm the guiltiest. I'm the world's slowest post writer in the (ancient!) history of blogging and blah blah excuses. I need to get it together, I know. Anyway, I was just curious if you've discovered any new blog blood lately? (One of my recentlyish discovered favorites is Kate over at The Small Things Blog ... ) Or maybe you've started a blog? Let me know in the comments if so! I need to update my blog roll like whoa.

Okay, I think that's it. I had "beach chair" jotted down in my (organized!) notes to blog about but present Grace has NO idea what former Grace was talking about.

OH FINE. One photo of the children that are scarcely blogged about ...


... neglected fourth child. the love to watch her "flip" aka roll over aka all the excitement around here.

And now I'm off to greet sweet Theo who is up from his nap and yelling, "NO!" on machine gun repeat and of course start that black bean spaghetti for dinner.

Simon says, "yay."

  2. I started a blog in Juneish! www.whistlesandclovers.com. And seriously, your blog is my favorite. I have shared some of your posts on Facebook, recommend followers for you on instagram and on your blog.. seriously, I'm like your little cheerleader...... in a non-stalkerish way of course. :)

  3. Later on I want to know how that black bean spaghetti turns out because I almost grabbed those at costco last week.

  4. No guilt! You blog a lot and it's good. But I have noticed it seems less folks are blogging.

  5. Tim Riggins forever and always!! I should seriously not even get started on how much I love him. I just may have to write my own post on the Riggins v. Taylor debate to set all those crazies voting for Coach straight.

  7. You are so funny. You blog the most of any blog that I follow. And I never skip or just skim any of your posts, which must mean they all have good/ entertaining content!! I blog about twice a month and that is an exaggeration on the side of too many. http://www.thefattysmabees.blogspot.com

  8. Love this. I even have my husband hooked on your blog now. I mean, what? I never said that. Shhhh....

    You've been there before, but mine is www.goforthandmother.com. the only guarantee in my life is that I post a cocktail every Saturday. Which means that my husband and I spend Saturday naptime making up and mixing up new drinks during Saturday naptime.

    I mean, I have to, right? It's for the blog...

  9. I've noticed that my blog reader is much shorter than it used to be... although I'm as guilty as everyone else. Trying to change that, bc obviously the internet needs more of what I have to say!
    Black bean spaghetti? I hope your kids love it for your sake, but the Italian in me is crying.
    Is FNL worth watching in its entirety? I didn't pick it back up after season 1.

  10. I think everyone prefers Instagram to blogging these days. I still try to blog several times a week. I plan on reading it when I'm senile to remind me of how life used to be...If I can remember....

  11. I love how you write! You have me in stitches. I have a little blog. You'll find it at www.roseyhome.blogspot.co.uk. I'd love it if you took a look. I have just had my first baby. She is 2 weeks old.
    Love Sarah

  13. I am so excited for your family and can't wait to watch Miss America this year!
    I blog at www.tighteningthecorsetagain.blogspot.com but I've been in a dreadful writing slump this Summer. I have gone from blogging almost every day to blogging about once a week. Part of it is because I've been embroidering like a fool trying to make Christmas presents for everyone this year and part of it is because my life is so boring that there's only so many ways you can say, "I embroidered for seven hours today". I seem to do best with blog posts that I'm passionate about and lately I just haven't wanted to exert the energy it takes to be passionate.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I fall into the same issues with the internet pitfalls. I thought I was the only one. As a result, I always write my blog posts first thing in the morning before checking anything else.

  15. I have read your blog and stalked your Instagram for a while now. And I love both. You always make me smile/laugh and that is never a bad thing! I think your header is gorgeous. I have been blogging for several years, but recently moved to a new space: http://hannahjmckay.com/. You'd be welcome any time!

  16. 1. Need to hear more about this black bean spaghetti...
    2. Your blog is my absolute favorite. Many others I just skim for the pretty pics but I enjoy your writing/humor. Keep doing your thing - insert winky face.
    3. I just revamped/redid/updated/renamed mine so I lost most traffic. www.teamoneil.blogspot.com formerly www.shhmommysdrinking.com
    4. I haven't updated lately because we're carnies on the road. We have all our teeth still, so there's that.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I definitely understand how difficult it is to put the car seat cover back on after washing it... which is why I'll be waiting until the next blow out to re-wash ours!

    I actually blog at aMommyMemoir.com! I am fairly new to it, and definitely don't blog as much (or as well) as you. I love, love your blog! I just found it a couple weeks ago and it's such a joy to read! My goal is to write while my little one naps, but that has been less hit or miss and more hit and miss as of lately.

    BTW - forgive me if this comment (or very similar ones) have gone through three times now. I'm not sure if my comments are going through. Mea culpa if you get more than one from me! I'm pretty sure that trying to get my comment to go through may be as difficult as washing and re-covering a car seat... minus the blow out.

  18. Coach Taylor vs Riggins? Why must one choose?? I love Friday Night Lights so much. When I watch Nashville I sometimes forget her name is Rayna and not Tami Taylor. And if you love FNL might I suggest Parenthood? A lot of the same cast and same writer/producer. And I cry like every episode. And I have a pathetic little blog that is soooo neglected.

  19. couldn't even finish your post before going straight to google to be enlightened with the tswizzle vs. gomez fued.

  21. Riggins all the way!
    Black bean Spaghetti noodles frighten me.
    Anytime you want to post pictures of happy/sad/cute/awesome Patton children I am game.
    Love the Small Things Blog. Great advice on makeup, changed my game plan for mascara. Love my new choice.
    Voted for Miss Idaho. Go Sierra!!
    Can't help you with the car seat thing. I get into enough trouble with the straps on Courtney's wheelchair. Oy Vey!

  22. Ahahaha, I know, I have a six-week-old, and at 3am I am really wondering why all of my favorite blogs do not have fresh sparkly new posts for me?! However, I have been having lots of fun reading the blogs of everyone who writes for Blessed is She. Hurray, new blogs! I have had mine since 2011 and used to blog every weekday, but, ahahaha, now it's more like once a week. You do us all proud, Grace! And I always click on you first in my feed reader:) http://krugthethinker.com/

  24. I'm super guilty of blogging less and I blame it on my almost 5 month old. Although I think he's just an excuse. But when I do make the time, I blog over on frieddandelions.com —full of family friendly, mom friendly recipes. Would love for you to check it out!

  25. My vote is for Tami Taylor's hair. Husbo votes for Julie Taylor (b/c hahahhaa no). But srsly, Coach Taylor > Tim Riggins, sorry. I am using all my self-control not to click over and waste all kinds of time reading every comment in the debate . . . .

  26. Are the noodles black? They sound rather pretty. I have some purple rice I like to whip out when I'm in the mood for dinner to look purty. My kids like it...and it only cost $5/lb. :-/

  28. I feel like less blogging has been happening as well. Or school started and I've been consumed with 21 little cherubs calling for my attention all day which has limited my blog reading abilities. Either/or, I need some fresh reads.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Eh, I feel like end of summer + beginning of fall always slows bloggers down. I haven't blogged at all in the past month, but then again I feel like getting married + being out of the country for my honeymoon is probably a pretty decent excuse. ;) Also: yay! love the new header! I'll have to check out Brim Papery for all the upcoming website maintenance I have planned for this fall. :) :)

  33. I keep thinking that bloggers will pick up the speed again, because I feel like things started to hit a lull in my feed back in like, February! And it just keeps getting worse... Let us know your new finds! I know I'm guilty of not blogging much lately either - I blame pregnancy + internet rabbit hole ;)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I saw those black noodles in Costco and the sample lady tried to lure me over but it was all too easy to resist... black noodles, no thank you. Maybe if you let us know they're really delicious I'll take the bait next time. I always look forward to a Patton post! The new header is so pretty. Also, I blog every once in a blue moon but I'm all over that Instagram game.

  35. shamless blog plug. onecatholicmama.blogspot.com I've been blogging a bit less too....still fairly frequently but life has a way of getting in the way. le sigh.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I blog! I blog! But I love yours way better :) I'll lurk this comment section for more blog blood too. Any good Catholic Mama blogs to follow? That are as funny and easy as yours, please. Also, I am kind of a little morbidly obsessed with the drama over at YHL these days. There. I said it.

    Keep writing! Your kids are such characters.

  37. I'm so scatterbrained so I need to list this out.
    1 - Tim Riggins is like the guy I crushed on in HS (okay, okay and after) for YEAAAAAARS. Coach Taylor is the guy I ended up marrying. I guess I just like to dabble in both?
    2 - You are way way way better at blogging than most. I blog (maaybe twice a month at this point...) over at www.nataliejbean.blogspot.com. And I'm totally jealous of your gorgeous header. Seriously, so pretty.
    3 - Had grand plans for this evening...which ended up being Bachelor in Paradise, a root beer float, and the wormhole that is the internet. c'est la vie. every day. Heading off to find the deets on the Tswift feud now!!

  39. That graphic nails it...Internet = huge time suck. I go on on my computer with three quick tasks and an hour later am lucky to completed one. Hate! And as for blogging, the more pregnant I get with baby #2, the more my posts slow down. Guess now that I'm on bed rest I'll have more time for writing, just hoping I can think of something other than pre-term labor to talk about! www.preparingforpeanut.com

  40. I love your me. life goals, abyss of internet picture. It's actually perfect. I blog over at http://bigloveandepicfail.blogspot.com although August was a slow month for me. Homeschooling, four kiddos, and preparing to move halfway across the country kind of got the best of me. Here's hoping I pick it up in September.

  42. I love love love your new look! So pretty. (PS. Um, that Michigan game?? Saw you guys were there. As my younger sister would say, "sooo jeallly!" Or would it be "Jelly"? Mysteries of the universe).
    Favorite blogs of the moment, and disclaimer, all are food: Dessert for Two (b/c I'm a fatty and eat 100% of everything I bake, so less is a good idea); "The Kitchy Kitchen" (beautiful); Country Cleaver (because her puns are worse--meaning better--than mine).
    Please enjoy the little novel I wrote and hope you are well!

  43. Shameless plug. I blog (somewhat frequently...2-3x/week) over at www.longdaysarchives.blogspot.com

    Its a "mom blog". Life with three kids (#4 currently in utero) and a husband in medical school. Nothing earth shattering. Just our life:) I kinda like it though.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I choose both! I can't decide on a favourite (but I'm leaning towards Coach Taylor..). I recently binged on all the seasons because I needed to learn what the fuss was about. I live in Canada and...I don't even understand football, but the show was so good. (My previous comment didn't seem to post...so this may be a duplicate)

  45. 1. Car seat covers are more daunting than IKEA furniture to me. You have my sympathies.
    2. Black bean spaghetti sounds like something I need to go try.
    3. Wait, TSwift & Selena Gomez had a feud?!? Now I'm off to go Google this, too...
    4. Indiana's blog looks awesomepossum. Thanks for sending us over there!
    5. I found out during college, when I was really tired and wasn't fully paying attention to the lecture {bad Sam!}, my notes got reallyREALLY strange. And they always veered off into scribbles about food. So. Your beach chair isn't too odd!
    6. I'm not sure whom you already follow, blog-wise, so I'll just suggest a few you might like to check out: Coffee + Crumbs, Cup of Jo's "Motherhood Around the World" series, Elise Blaha, Under the Sycamore {lovelovelove}, & Suri's Burn Book {so hilarious}. Aaand I blog, too {my obligatory shameless plug}!
    Happy Tuesday, Grace! (:

  49. I try to blog a couple times a week. I started out a couple of months ago with grand expecations of blogging at least once a day and then *thwomp!* reality kicked in.
    Plus, as a 40 hour a week worker bee at the most boring job in creation and being a mom/wife on autopilot the rest of the time, bloggable stuff is scarce... but I'm trying to keep it going as a MUCH needed creative outlet! :)

  50. I used to read blogs allll the time and then ... I stopped having time for it really, and the blogs I was reading had kids growing up and moving on while I was/am still having little ones ... so anyway, yours is the only one I read regularly these days! I love your writing, your posts always make me laugh, and you always write about something I'm also dealing with here (my youngest was born just a few weeks before Phoebe). I started a new blog at the beginning of the summer, it's just about baby names (I may have posted about you and yours&Simon's amazing name choices once or twice), but since that's one of my fave topics ever, I'm enjoying writing it ... http://sanctanomina.wordpress.com/

I love Tim, but I have a little crush on Matty, too. :) I'm trying to just keep my head above water with my blog (bybmg.blogspot.com) since starting back to school (I'm a teacher) and start grad school, too. Plus the husband and two children I have to keep in line! I try to read/comment on people's blogs, but sometimes I just have to throw my hands up in the air and hope my blog friends know I love them anyway even if I can't comment all the time....though it's way more fun than reading for grad school!

  57. Tim Riggins! I didn't understand the appeal at first but slowly but surely he stole my heart.

  58. Your cousin, Sierra, is super adorable. Vote complete!

    I started a blog (www.bubblesandgold.com), but damn life gets busy. And all up in the way. Oh, and the internet. It's like a maze I get lost in and then don't end up blogging. Like those "choose your own adventure" books that were super popular in the 90's.

    ...which is why I'm reading your witty commentary and not publishing my own post. Hah!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Okay, I think this might be my third attempt at a comment because it keeps disappearing and I'm sorry if it is! But you should definitely read Rachel's blog at Maybe Matilda.

  64. Oh yes, so true. If I sit down during nap time to write a post and think, "I'm just going to check my email real quick" then I end up with nothing written and kids awake two hours later, but I've gotten caught up on some blogs (how do you think I got to the point of writing this silly comment at this very moment?) and then slid too far down the internet-slippery-slope to who knows where (Justin Bieber???).

    I'm guilty of blogging less lately on my not-new blog. I blame the internet. I'm stealing that and running with it.

  65. I started a blog back in college when I was trying to distract myself from doing any actual work. Good student, I was. I seemed to come up with a lot more crap to write about back then. Emphasis on the word "crap", because I'm sure that's all it was.

    That blog went down the drain, and recently I started up a new one when I decided to open an etsy shop (baby things!). I don't post much yet, but we'll see how it goes. bleugingham.blogspot.com if you feel so inclined.

  68. You're the funniest...pull of self-deprecating humor better than anyone else I've read! Also, you are totally a blogging inspiration in that you blog almost DAILY with four under four. I have two under two and can eke out one or two a week max (expect an email from me soon begging for advice). I'm at forwantofwonder.wordpress.com. :)

  70. I love reading your blog and I am so impressed that you get several posts up a week! I always have blogs brewing in my mind, but only put it together a few times a month...mostly just to document our family happenings and post pics of Ted. www.ladysoper.blogspot.com.

    You really are a great blog writer...the only one I read about someone I don't know in person! I love that you write down/remember all the funny things that happen with your kids. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  71. Yes! So many of the blogs I follow are blogging less! I'm pretty sure you're rocking the blogging world by those like 4 or 5 days in a row that you blogged. Thanks for keeping up with the blogging so I have something to read while I nurse my baby like 10x a day... Def gotta check out that blog roll so I can bookmark some new faves :)

    ReplyDelete
  72. Your blog seriously makes me laugh so dang hard to myself. I should be sleeping while my three (oldest just turned 3, youngest 3 months) are sleeping but you know, silence/alone time... I'm crazy. I wish I blogged more!

    ReplyDelete
  73. Ha - I've discovered this is one advantage to having twins! I take the cover off one car seat at a time, so I still have the other one as a "control" for re-assembly. Those things are a mess to put back together.

  74. Hi Grace! I do have a blog - it's about children's books, plus my own girls' reading. It's www.youngpeoplesbooks.blogspot.com and I'd love you to check it out! Just getting ready to put up two new posts before the weekend. I was definitely a slacker this summer on posting and trying to catch up! Susan

  75. Yes, so many bloggers are switching to Instagram or leaving blogging.

    I recently found Aubrey Kinch and I LOVE, LOVE her blog and Instagram. She's pregnant with her first baby and the cutest! Her blog is great inspiration, but it's bad for my wallet because I've literally purchased so many of the items (clothes, baby gear, decor) she recommends. It's addicting :)

    ReplyDelete
  76. My blog's been a little on the "lull-ish" side lately too because of my 6 month old. I was just starting to really work on my blog and try to turn it into something a little more successful (that hopefully someone other than my mother would read) when he was born. He's Baby #4 for my family and has many medical challenges so between him and the other three kidlets, I'm pretty much always busy. BUT, I've been working hard to re-invigorate my blog lately by writing several posts in a row and then publishing them throughout the week. Please stop on over and see what we've been up to! http://www.supermommyornot.blogspot.com

  77. I have Friday Night Lights on my NetFlix queue so now I'm even more excited to try it! Also curious about the black bean spaghetti, sorry to jump on the bandwagon!
    I have a new-ish blog as well, mostly just about marriage and parenting / pregnancy with a touch of sewing, books and travel. =] www.nursingnapsnostalgia.blogspot.com

  78. Hi Grace! I started following your blog a few months ago and love it! I recently started blogging earlier this year... not much to write home about just yet but I've kept up with it so far. Hope ya take a gander at www.nauticalnomad.com . I'm excited to read these comments as I am in need of some new blogs to read as well, a lot of my regulars have dropped off. Anyways, happy hump day!

  79. looove your new header! FNL totally changed my life when i got laid off 2 years ago and while i have my master's in social work, i seriously contemplated only applying for school counselor jobs so i could be tammy taylor. i even interviewed for one but then it lost funding (where's that school system in TX?!)

    anywho, loving all these new bloggers to follow in your feed and i shall hazard to throw myself in the mix at www.theNewWifestyle.com

  80. Your blogposts/grams are the comic relief in my days! I always look forward to your posts and you never disappoint!

    I started a blog (over 3 years ago) to keep my family and friends informed on our lives when I got married and moved across the country! My husband was a Resident at the time (now Fellow!) and I figured it would give me something fun to work on. Unfortunately all it's really turned into is a virtual scrapbook with pictures of my babies, the trips we take and a recipe or two sprinkled here and there. Nothing too exciting, but I love working on it and then being able to look back on the memories.

  82. I went on an extreme blogging hiatus during nursing school but now that I'm finished and an actual RN (!!!) I almost died of ITP, can't work, am doing chemo, and have nothing better to do but blog. Ohhhh, life. http://aimlesslastwords.com/2014/09/14/my-itp-story-or-that-time-i-almost-bled-to-death-part-one/

    Just so you know, I waited on baited breath for you to update your blog while I was in the hospital for a week. It's the only thing I actually read.
