Baby Manca

 Published in


Today, we laid eyes on a very special person, the one growing in my belly. The one making me smile and giggle uncontrollably. The one that made me give up lunchmeat. The one we love so very much.

We met Baby Manca during his/her first photo shoot. Like any celebrity, he/she put his/her hands up as if to say, "stop, no wait...take it from this angle."

The ultrasound went really well! We saw the heartbeat which was normal beats/minute. Mark and I also saw the baby kick and wave it's arms. It even reclined his/her little head back - totally relaxing. Baby Manca is roughly the size of an avocado - about 3 inches in length.

the overthinkers society

 Published in

Do you ever question your decisions? Do you spend time re-evaluating your options? Ever catch yourself justifying your decisions to others even when they don't ask you to?

Recalling our inner designers and critics, human tendency allows us the ability of choice in our lives. Yet as intellectuals, it is easy to critique what we are about to do, the plans we are about to put forth and the precursor steps to making something happen.

I call this belonging to the Overthinkers Society. Originally brought to life in a Saturday Night Live skit starring Jeff Goldblum, the epitome of eccentric and well, over-anything in his approach.

Rideau River Camping Adventure (as told by Laney)

 Published in

This weekend we went camping and had lots of fun. We weren't near home and I kept hearing people say "Rideau River" so maybe we went there.

We had lots of adventures, and best of all, we left that bad kitty Tashi at home! She is way too bad to take camping, so she had to stay by herself and watch the house. She doesn't do as good a job as me, but she did ok.

When we got there to the camping site, there was a big dog that I met. It was the size of a horse! He seemed nice, but I didn't like him around so I barked at him every chance I got. I told him who's boss!

Then I ran around and checked the perimeter of the camp area. It was good, except for that dog. Other people showed up and loved on me, so I was pretty happy. Oh yah, and we ate and I got to sneak what people were dropping. I almost got a whole hamburger when they weren't looking, but my mommy saw me.

The Alkaline Diet

 Published in

Mark and I were first introduced to the Alkaline Diet of all places but on our Carribean Cruise. We have since sworn this is the best and healthiest way to live life and have never looked or felt better in our lives. Check it out!

What is an alkaline diet?
An alkaline diet is a diet that emphasizes, to a varying degree, fresh fruit, vegetables, roots, nuts, and legumes. It does not completely replace other foods, but switches the balance to 80/20 alkaline foods to the Western diet stuff.

Jess Birthday!

Yin Yoga

 Published in

In Portland, I had been introduced to a few types of Yoga - Hot, Ashtanga and a very powerful one called Yin Yoga.

Yin Yoga is an asana practice, and counterbalances the body from the more common Yang yoga practices. These poses target the deep tissue between the muscles rather than the muscles themselves. For me, it allows me to focus on greater flexibility and opening up areas that typically store the body's tension - in women, the hips and in men, the shoulders.

Laney has a torn ACL!

 Published in

My little dog Laney has a confirmed torn tendon in her knee. She injured herself jumping and landing poorly on the slippery hard wood floors over a week ago.

The doctor says she needs knee surgery to repair her little back leg. As she turns 10 this year, I think it's best that we go forward with the surgery. She's just not herself, and she stresses me out trying to jump and run to chase Natasha.

We'll schedule her surgery in early January. She's currently resting in her crate (doggie version of bed rest), and missing chasing squirrels.
