The Weekly Drool–My Boyfriend


It is true. While I am almost 100% devoted to Hubby,  I have a secret love on the side.  Last week at Comic Con, I was on the phone with Biggest.  She asked what I was doing that day.  I told her, “Mommy is going to see her boyfriend.”  She immediately replied, “Oh, Tom Hiddleston?”

Yup, I am raising that one right.

She was correct.  I was going to see Tom Hiddleston, the only man I would leave Hubby for.   For those of you who don’t know who that is, he is a British actor who was in War Horse, Midnight in Paris, Thor, and The Avengers.  He is so dreamy that he is not only on my top five list, he IS my top five list and I was going to be in the same room as him (along with 250 other people).  Sure, it was not the intimate setting I had always imagined in my nutty 35-year-old-mother-of-two fantasies, but it was close enough. 

On the bright side, Hubby was cool with it.  He has long known about my love affair with Tom Hiddleston.  I asked him how he felt about the situation.  Hubby said he will be sad, but the financial settlement he will receive in return for giving me up will make him feel slightly better.  No matter what he says, I know Hubby was relieved when Tom found his own ride to the airport after the panel I saw him in at Comic Con.  Seriously.  I would have shared our cab with him…

Still a bummer for me. 

Either way, enjoy some photos of a beautiful man.

For those who want to watch the interview that I was at to take these photos (yes I took them myself), please enjoy the following Conversations for  Cause with Tom Hiddleston at Nerd HQ during Comic Con.  Yes, I was there.  No, you can’t see me or Bestie in the video very well but we are in it near a column in the back ground, just look for my bleached out hair!  After attending this panel, even Bestie now admits to understanding my adoration of this man.  PS, enjoy the little extra yumminess in the form of Zachary Levi (who is number six on my list).

Don’t forget to support Operation Smile!


You’re welcome.

I'm Back!

Ok, I know it has been a freakishly long blog hiatus. First of all, my most sincere apologies. While I am sure the break has not caused anyone’s life to stop on a dime, I imagine you may have been wondering where I have been hiding. Well… home and at work. The past couple of months, the balance between work/life/blog have not been very balanced. Some of my few nights where I have not been busy, I have been just trying to relax.

Second, I have been working on a way to make sure I am sharing content with you on a (mostly) regular basis. Moving forward, my goal is to have a minimum of two (preferably more!) posts per week. How will I accomplish said goal? I have a plan! Yes, I know best laid plans….blah blah blah. My plan is to publish two weekly posts with consistent themes.

The first will be a midweek post, The Weekly Drool. This post could be about my hot new dentist (Hello, Dr. Chad!) or the latest and greatest items at work which I can’t stop thinking about, basically whatever I am yearning for at any given moment.

The second will be a end of week post, The Weekly Wrap Up. This will give a wrap up of the week’s highlights, some may already be blogged about, some will not. Sometimes this will be freakishly exciting. Other times….not so much. Sounds like something you want to read, doesn’t it?! I promise I will keep it spicy and interesting.

So moving forward, I make a commitment to you followers, to do a better job of posting interesting and exciting content in a timely manner. I truly value everyone who follows this random mom/style/God-only-knows-what blog I write.  From the bottom of my heart, thank you for following.
