A Blast From The Past

My friend Nicole over at By Word of Mouth Musings has created a meme called Time Travel Tuesdays in which you pull out an old post and link up. She’s been doing it for a few weeks now, and I keep wanting to link up but have had other posts already lined up.

Today was a craptastic day. All 3 kids have colds, and Mia has been really clingy while the other 2 have been (relatively speaking) okay. I hate when they’re sick; I feel so bad that I can’t just make them feel better. But man, it makes for a very L-O-N-G day! So the post I was going to write will have to wait. I need a glass of wine and the second part of the Real Housewives of Orange County reunion show. All by myself. In the quiet.

Jason and I on vacation in St. Lucia. Before kids. Damn I miss those vacations!

So I am going to send you to one of my all time favorite posts. It was written in April 2010, about a month after I started blogging. It’s called Do You Remember When, and it’s about all of the things we used to do before we had our kids that we used to take for granted (peeing without an audience, anyone?). It was such a hit that the next day I published a Do You Remember When Part II and included all of my reader’s remembrances from days past. Maybe after today I’ll need to do a Part 3!

So enjoy!


  1. I'm really enjoying her Time Travel Tuesday. It's such an awesome idea. And now I'm gonna go check out those posts.
  2. Love Nicole's TTT and your posts! I've been a mommy for all of a whopping 3 months, and here are few that I miss so far. Spooning with Hubs at night; wearing a shirt more than once between washings; having something else interesting to talk/blog about besides my kid; eating with two hands; having sensitive nipples (oops, TMI?); knowing all about the latest news, movies and music; choosing an outfit without having to factor in the ease of which I can whip out a boob ... Love your blog!
  3. Great idea for getting exposure to some older posts that weren't seen much when your blog was young. Thanks for the heads up on the meme.
  4. I only just linked up with Nicole for TTT for the first time too! Your old post was fab, truly. Glad you pointed us there.
  5. Yes, there is traffic :) Glad you got your feather duster out and made it over this week. I just love being pointed to the posts that people want to have read again, beats a magazine hands down!
  6. I haven't been over here in forever, sorry! Love the new look! I barely remember my time before kids since I had my first when I was 20. Getting a good night's sleep is definately something I remember having once though!
  7. This is a great idea! I'll have to do it next week!
  8. pre kids. soooooo long ago. i barely recognize myself.
  9. Oh, yuck...so sorry to hear the kiddos are sick!! I can imagine how tough it is! Hope they feel better soon! Love the picture! I have tons of pictures of me with a huge smile on my face while on vacation with Tim before kids, too! Now, I'm hardly in any vacation pics!! And if I were in any, I doubt I'd be smiling! OMG, I can't wait for the Real Housewives reunion Part 2 next week either!!! I thrive off all that drama!!! Wierd thing is that I kinda like both Gretchen and Tamra...too bad they hate each other.
  10. Oh my gosh, I think I spilled waaaaay too much info on that Remember when post. I loved reading it though. So much fun! Lots of yummy love, Alex aka Ma What's For Dinner www.mawhats4dinner.com
  11. Love that pic! And LOVE those vacations!!!
  12. Ah life before kids. I can barely remember a real relaxing vacation. What a great meme! I'm ready for your part 3 for sure!
