our mark on Coco Beach, FL (it wasn't very permanent)

our mark on Coco Beach, FL (not exactly long lasting...)


I used to think I was lucky I didn’t have a permanent brown smudge on my ass shaped like an amoeba.  Then one day I was having an introspective moment and realized no one of any real importance would ever see THAT PART and I instead started worrying about all the visible imperfections.  I think that’s how self esteem deflates.  You become self conscious of things you can’t cover up.  Unless you wander around the planet during all seasons wearing a baggy, unflattering sweat suit.

I pick self conscious.  Being hot’s a bitch.

Think of this as your visible brown smudge, albeit one with a positive connotation, welcomed and admired by all – like Cindy Crawford’s facial mole (call it what you want, a mole’s a mole)

Did you visit me?  Can I stalk your blog back?  I’m curious by nature.  And so are you.  If you disagree and tisk-tisk blog-stalking, then you’re in denial and still believe we can see through your jeans when you bend over.

So let me know you were here – tell me what you hated or liked or reminded you of that one time in second grade…

Like an answering machine, just without the beep.

    Fun blog! Have a great time in London – an incredible city!

  2. 3 Strawberry June 13, 2009 at 5:40 pm

    I stalked your page back from mine (:
    Like you, I have a cat (It used to be had cats, sadly). Yours are adorable. But, your dog is also lovely. I prefer cats, but I love all animals.

    You have a really interesting blog.

    • 4 Jessica June 13, 2009 at 6:27 pm

      Thank you for the compliment (I was told to say that from The Girls) – I hope to be relatable to others…or at least make an attempt… My husband says he has finally figured out how my brain works and I’m not sure if that means a “woman’s” brain or just mine in particular….

  3. 5 Shannon June 14, 2009 at 9:31 am

    I stalked your page back from comment left on mine. let me tell ya you can line up with the people that would like to insert foot to Bills balls! Love your blog!

    • 6 Jessica June 14, 2009 at 9:53 am

      Thank you! And as for Bill – I know you already know this but: He is NOT worth it! He sucks. He’ll realize the error of his ways…but it’ll be too late…for him, anyway.

    Read your comment about my former place of employment not too long ago. Haven’t read that many entries from you, but the ones I did look over were entertaining.

    And visible imperfections are what make us unique.

  5. 9 mennogirl June 19, 2009 at 8:53 am

    I got here through a comment you made on my blog and I have to say I love your descriptions of your pets and your about page is pretty awesome too 🙂

    • 10 Jessica June 19, 2009 at 10:48 am

      Thank you! Hope to see you stop back by sometime…and I forgot to tell you in my other comment – LOVED the pictures of the strawberries. My brother majored in art and is good with “seeing” a great shot. Me…not so much. Tim is in charge of all the picture taking. I do the video…can’t mess THAT up as badly…

  6. 11 Lori Jo June 21, 2009 at 11:42 am

    Lori Jo was here…
    thanks for the comment :

    Btw how did u find my blog? I’m always curious! 😉

  7. 13 kimmolner July 13, 2009 at 2:51 pm

    Fun blog, thanks.

  8. 14 forsythkid July 22, 2009 at 3:23 pm

    Nice blog. I really like the one about clouds. I study weather as a hobby.

    • 15 Jessica July 22, 2009 at 6:16 pm

      Wow! I wouldn’t mind that for a hobby! I’m fascinated with tornadoes…but also absolutely terrified at the same time. Kinda a catch 22….

      Hope to see you back sometime- I’ll have to entice you with more weather pictures 🙂

  9. 16 someonestolemylife July 23, 2009 at 5:01 pm

    I think you’re hilarious. Love everything about the blog.

  10. 18 Alysha Sandow July 24, 2009 at 2:38 pm

    Hi There,
    Fantastic blog! I love the way you write and your subject matter too. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment, am glad I took the time to read through yours. …Diamond in the rough 😉

    Look forward to more posts soon…


    • 19 Jessica July 24, 2009 at 2:42 pm

      Thank you! Glad you enjoyed it…as it would be a little off-putting if reading it was like nails on a chalk board…

      Hope to see you back soon!… Let me know how I’m doing…or not doing…. 🙂

  11. 20 someonestolemylife July 24, 2009 at 5:47 pm

    Hilarious to me for sure. Just taking normal stuff and presenting it in a way the made me giggle. Men never want to admit when a girl is funny. (well that’s what I tell myself when I can’t get my boyfriend to crack a smile anyway)

  12. 21 Natasha July 30, 2009 at 1:12 am

    i love how your blog shows that you’re enjoying life a lot.. love how intimate and fun you and your husband seem to be in your relationship. my blog’s about growing up, but your blog is about growing with each other.. it’s amazing 🙂

    keep it up! (the blog stalking ;D )

    • 22 Jessica July 30, 2009 at 5:23 am

      Thanks! We try… to enjoy life..sometimes it is just so mundane, though.

      Glad to see you stopped by…maybe you should take up stalking, too… it can be quite entertaining.

  13. 23 direclown August 2, 2009 at 6:35 pm

    Hey! I was at this show too! I just blogged about it as well. Not the biggest country fan here, but I enjoyed myself, to say the least. Cool pictures, man!

    • 24 Jessica August 3, 2009 at 6:41 am

      Personally, I liked the Bob That Head tour better…. But we definitely had fun! Glad you did, too! They seem to do pretty well playing non-country style songs to please the masses…Darius Rucker helped, too.

      Thanks for stopping by- hope to see you back from time to time!

    hi! you checked my blog, so i’m checking yours. thanks for stopping by
    had fun listening to your rantings! i don’t know you, but i feel like i can say that to you? is that ok? 😉

  16. 28 joz1234 August 10, 2009 at 2:51 pm

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! I love new comments! I’m enjoying your blog and plan to be back!

    Hey, thanks for the comment on my blog 🙂 Congrats on the engagement! I definitely plan to keep reading.

  19. 32 Lori August 14, 2009 at 3:35 pm

    Thanks for the comment on my blog today! I hope to soon be starting a non-baby blog in the near future.

    I hope to come back to your blog soon to learn more about you and your adventures 🙂 Have a great weekend!

    Stopping in to say hello! Thanks for swinging by my blog! It’s going to be moving and growing up soon, so check http://www.hoosiermama.com to find me again in a few weeks! Love the photo in you header! We have fur kids too…two dogs and a horse. Recently welcomed an actual child into the world…the fur kids love her.

  21. 35 essentiallyrose August 15, 2009 at 10:56 am

    Hi Jessica. It’s Rose. Thanks for reading my blog! I’m new to all of this, and it makes me feel good that people I don’t know are actually reading my stuff. I am enjoying your posts as well, especially the chicken in the garbage story. (eww). Take care, and enjoy year 3 of marriage!

    • 36 Jessica August 15, 2009 at 1:16 pm

      Hi Rose – It is fun…knowing other people enjoy yor writing, isn’t it? Definitely glad to see you stopped by! Hope to see you again from time to time!

  22. 37 justagirlinvegas August 17, 2009 at 1:40 am

    I am now your blogstalker but you commented first!!! Lol and you were my very first comment so I had to come and check you out. I love what I see and you crack me up so yeah…you have another blog watcher…

  23. 39 Whine with my Wine August 17, 2009 at 6:14 pm

    Great blog, I came from your very true comment. I look forward to stalking you.

  24. 41 ToolBoxGirl August 17, 2009 at 8:14 pm

    I stalked you from a comment you left on my blog…

    I’m adding you to my blog roll…any preference where you’d like to be on it? Multiple choices are acceptable…let me know!


    • 42 Jessica August 18, 2009 at 4:31 am

      Hi Peggy! Thanks for stopping over here on my blog… I’ve yet to start a blogroll…as I’m working on some “changes” to my site first 😉 I think where you put me on your is perfect.

      And major congrats to you- both for your book and leap! We’ll be atypical workers together 🙂

  25. 43 briefhiatus August 18, 2009 at 9:54 am

    “Making my mark as requested.” Just coming across your blog, but it looks fun! I shall add you to my reader methinks. 😉

  26. 45 shoegirl August 18, 2009 at 5:43 pm

    I stalked you back from the comment you left me! I laughed at the pictures of your “mayonaise cake”. Hilarious! =)

    • 46 Jessica August 18, 2009 at 5:49 pm

      Hi shoegirl – thanks for stopping by….yea…the mayonnaise cake was….well….a slight disaster…haven’t tried to make one since….

      Hope to see you again from time to time!!

  27. 47 Mindy August 18, 2009 at 5:56 pm

    Hi Jessica!
    Love your blog…you and I share a similar sense of humor! =0) I appreciate you leaving me a comment. You were my very first comment by a person who’s not related to me or my best friend. Thanks for being there! =)


    • 48 Jessica August 18, 2009 at 5:58 pm

      Mindy – I got to be a FIRST?!? YEA! I’m never first…someone’s always beaten me to the punch (unless it’s in basketball…I can play some basketball 🙂 ). Well, hope to see you around from time to time. We can blog-stalk each other. Have a great evening!

  28. 49 heatherslalaland August 18, 2009 at 8:13 pm

    Does that mean I now have a stalker?! Woohoo! I hope it’s an elite group, not your average run-of-the-mill stalker stuff. Can’t be doing with any of that. I think I’ll blogroll you and get others to stalk you, now that’s classy stalking!

  29. 51 The Zadge August 18, 2009 at 8:25 pm

    I prefer to use the term “blog-research”, although my sister insists that I am a blog-stalker! Alegre has THE COOLEST EYES!!!! And I too am an ex-baller – when you’re 5’9″ in 5th grade, do you have a choice?;)

    • 52 Jessica August 19, 2009 at 4:34 am

      The Zadge: blog research. Perfectly P.C. Love it.

      And no- you’re like, required to play when you’re graced with height. They figure out the coordination part later…

  30. 53 blackbyrd August 25, 2009 at 11:19 am

    Your “fur-kid” page is awesome and I just love what you write about!
    Your writing is humorous and entertaining. I doubt mine’s as humorous as yours. I think I’d better work on that. 😉

  31. 55 amandagibbs August 25, 2009 at 10:00 pm

    I love reading your blog! Thanks for taking the time to drop by mine as well. I have two out there and I just got my other one up and running and moved my posts. 🙂

    So if your bored and wanna check it out:


    I am attempting to link them together….ugh

  32. 57 Single Soccer Mom August 26, 2009 at 12:43 am

    Great blog! I love your writing style. Will definitely be stopping by now and then 🙂

    Thanks for your comment!

  33. 59 nysoonergirl August 26, 2009 at 3:23 pm

    Found your page through a comment on my blog. It’s always nice to see someone who’s heard of Rochester, NY!

  34. 61 TheWildMind August 26, 2009 at 6:59 pm

    Hi there! Followed you home from my blog and I’m glad I did! This is fun. I’ll stalk you here more often, lol! I’m adding you to my blogroll for just that purpose. 😀

  35. 63 Angelia Sims August 27, 2009 at 8:50 pm

    Your blog is like a fresh cotton scent of fun. I adore it! 🙂 I am just starting my blogging but your welcome to stop by anytime.

  36. 66 Jenera August 30, 2009 at 12:40 am

    Thanks for stopping by my blog today! I’ll be adding you to my reader!

  37. 68 jennawoestman August 31, 2009 at 8:38 pm

    HI! I’ll leave my mark as you left yours on mine. And, I just met someone from Atlanta today…they moved to Texas 3 weeks ago. But as I’m bad with names, I forgot his already.

  38. 70 Just Joey September 1, 2009 at 7:59 pm

    Howdy Jess, Jessica, JB, UPS… awkward. I just met you so I don’t know where I fit into the nickname hierarchy. You let me know and I’ll reciprocate. I’ve got some doozies.

    Thanks for the comment & I enjoyed stealthing around your blog (…sounds so much more gentile than “creeping”, no?)

    Take care 🙂

    • 71 Jessica September 1, 2009 at 8:03 pm

      Well, Just Joey (or is if just “Joey?)…you can call me Jessica or Jess…those two tend to be the popular ones at the moment 🙂 glad you stopped by – hope to see you snooping around again from time to time 😉

  39. 72 Daphne September 2, 2009 at 2:16 pm

    I’ve been stalking your blog (and even commenting!) for at least a couple of weeks now and I JUST noticed this page on your site. Shame on me.

    So… HI! I know you’re stalking my blog too. Thanks for returning the love. I told Donald last night that you’re one of my blog buddies. Hope that’s ok.

  40. 74 Stephanie September 2, 2009 at 2:33 pm

    Love your blog. Glad you commented on mine as I’ve been blog collecting lately as I am an insanely curious person and there’s just something exciting about seeing little glimpses of people’s lives. Also, good writing is good! 🙂

    Anywho, loved the post about puppy chow! I had a very vaguely similar incident when my family moved to South Texas and I mentioned it to someone: Huge over-reaction, disgust all around. Well, you know! 😀

    • 75 Jessica September 2, 2009 at 5:18 pm

      Stephanie: thank you! I’m glad you dropped in! Puppy chow…the stuff seems to cause so much confusion…but it’s so good! If only they’d give you a second to explain before jumping to conclusions…. 🙂

  41. 76 Stephanie September 3, 2009 at 1:16 pm

    Lol! I know! They look at you like you just dropped out of the sky and told them to eat dirt!

  42. 77 aweierich September 5, 2009 at 3:23 pm

    Hello hello! I visited your blog after you posted on mine and I realized I had no idea who the hell you were ; ). Since yesterday afternoon (when the moment of realization finally occurred that you were a Jessica not already in my acquaintance) I have been leafing through your blog and I have to say… I’m riveted! Normally I only read blogs about *topics* (crafts, weddings, and other safe and non-personal ways to interface with others) but your blog oozes with intelligence, articulation and a wonderful sense of humor in a way that is downright magnetic : ).

    Forgive the effusiveness, I figure it is better to be overly enthusiastic than risk giving a listless compliment, especially since you don’t need to worry about my effusiveness turning into stalker-ness or being anything other than sincere admiration. Anyway- great job on your blog and congrats for having such an awesome husband + dogs. Keep it up, please! : )

  43. 78 brownvagabonder September 5, 2009 at 11:31 pm

    Just saw your comment on my blog. Thanks! 🙂 I am going to start reading yours, looks interesting and honest, which I love!

  44. 80 Lori September 7, 2009 at 12:44 pm

    Hi! Thanks for stopping by and introducing yourself to me. I can see you are animal lover, so right there we have a lot in common! Great blog! I’ll be back.

    • 81 Jessica September 8, 2009 at 7:57 pm

      Lori – So great to see you stopped by! Animals…sometimes I think I get along better with them than I do people. At least what they do makes sense…and is consistent…and they’re pretty upfront with their likes and dislikes…

      Definitely hope to see you around from time to time! 🙂

  45. 82 Ashley September 8, 2009 at 9:41 am


    I’m Ashley, you left a comment on my blog recently. In paging through yours, I’m hooked.

  46. 84 Love September 8, 2009 at 4:08 pm

    Found you through a Tweet from DoubleSifted today. Happy 2 year anniversary – it does get easier!! Well, until you have kids, then it gets bad all over again. You’ll figure it out. See you around the blogosphere!

  47. 85 frenchrangoon September 11, 2009 at 10:57 pm

    Hey! Just dropped by for the first time – seems pretty hilarious. You’ll be added to my reader! Also, thanks for stopping by my blog! Jen

  48. 87 jruthkelly September 13, 2009 at 9:28 am

    Blood Mountain? North Georgia…cabining? Is that your stomping ground?! I love the N. Ga. mountains!!!!!!!!! Tallulah is a must every year. Lake Winfield Scot…

    So, I leave my mark. Here. Hear? Hark the redhead ridiculous and sometimes too serious. You run. Take me with you in your heart ’cause its a dream of mine, to run. My body’s in total rebellion. Long story. Boring. Difficult. Blah.

    Mark. Tag. Dot. . . (i love dots)

    Glad to have found your blog!!! Feel free to haunt mine but do leave your mark when you do…

  49. 88 randomlymikey September 13, 2009 at 10:43 am

    MIKEY was here!
    i’m just getting acquainted with your blog. so far i really enjoy your style. look forward to reading more.

  50. 89 misscaron September 13, 2009 at 10:53 am

    You are fun! Plus, I have a good friend that went to LaGrange. Never heard of it in my life and then once she went it keeps popping up in conversations. Weird and cool all at the same time. 🙂

  51. 90 alyndabear September 13, 2009 at 12:12 pm

    Am leaving my mark, as you have left yours. Hoorah!

  52. 91 Me September 13, 2009 at 8:02 pm

    Since you left a comment on my blog, I decided to check your page out. That’s what I do to anyone who leaves a mark on my page. I enjoy the sarcasm in the way you write–I can relate! Look forward to blog stalking you! haha

  53. 92 Aron September 14, 2009 at 8:25 pm

    thanks for checking out my blog!

    I like your dog. He’s orange too.

    You on the Twitter?

  55. 95 theresawiza September 20, 2009 at 12:20 pm

    Wow! I had to scroll down and down and down just to find the “Leave a Reply” comment box. You must be REALLY popular! The reason I’m writing is because I wanted to say thank you for commenting on my blog. Hope you enjoyed the quiz. Feel free to forward it to as many of your “partnered” friends as you want. Enjoyed reading your blog. You really ARE funny.

  56. 96 Sarah September 20, 2009 at 4:49 pm

    Found your blog after you left a comment on my post (Sexy, no?). I love finding new interesting blogs to read…thanks for leading me to yours!! I shall add you to my blog, if that’s okay?

  57. 98 ckb September 23, 2009 at 10:41 am

    Fun Blog!! I love being lazy!!!!!
    What’s blog stalking though? lol. I think I need this explained to me- I may do this all the time.

  58. 99 Tosha September 23, 2009 at 3:01 pm

    I got a good laugh at the “permanent brown smudge on my ass shaped like an amoeba”… I guess b/c I have one..ROFLMAO.. its just not shaped like an amoeba.. hmm.. it never bothered me. Anyhow.. I’m totally blog stalking.. 🙂

  59. 100 peedee September 26, 2009 at 6:15 pm

    Ima creeper for sure. I read tons of blogs and I really like yours. I havent been thru the whole thing yet, but eventually I will. I love receiveing comments and love to comment on others. Sometimes I dont comment cause I think people will be all wierded out that I have something to say about every post.

    Anyway, its a pleasure. Thanks!

  60. 101 Kat September 26, 2009 at 10:38 pm

    Hey Jessica,
    Thanks for visiting my blog! Yours is wonderful- you have such a funny, intelligent voice. I look forward to reading more!

  61. 103 Wendi September 28, 2009 at 3:31 pm

    Jessica, thanks for your comment on Bon Appetit Hon…otherwise I never would have found your blog. Awesome.


  62. 104 kadeeswedding September 28, 2009 at 8:10 pm

    I’m not sure how you found my blog but you left me a comment and naturally I was curious and checked yours out. Still not sure exactly what your blog is about but I think that’s the beauty in it – the spontaneity and journaling of every day life. You’re a wonderful writer and an inspiration to do online journaling of my life after my wedding is over.

  63. 105 Kid Icarus September 29, 2009 at 1:37 pm

    Came by today to see what was new – liked your post about “what your blog should be about” and I stick by my comment of keeping it random. Keep it up!

  64. 106 sunshineparadise September 29, 2009 at 7:44 pm

    First of all, I’d like to say: thanks for leaving a comment on my blog! 🙂 I didn’t expect it.
    Love your blog; it’s so random, so funny and so awesome at the same time. It’s already made me laugh out loud quite a few times even though I’ve only started reading some of your entries. (I’m going to slowly make my way through!)
    By the way, you have beautiful pets :). They’re so adorable.

  65. 107 Jessica October 1, 2009 at 7:55 am

    Hey great blog! Excited to

  66. 109 Nancy from Fear and Parenting in Las Vegas October 1, 2009 at 5:04 pm

    Beeeep! I’m here. My mark? Would have to be a smear. I’m never in one physical, mental, or emotional space long enough to leave a real footprint. It’s harder to track me that way ;).

  68. 111 thefrenchchick October 12, 2009 at 9:55 am

    Thanks for the comment on my blog. Yes, I do enjoy doing things with my kids. We don’t have any furry pets yet, but I’ll keep bugging the spouse til we do. I enjoyed reading your recent blog posts. Keep blogging and never worry about what others think of your blog because it is uniquely you, as it should be.

  69. 113 Birdie October 21, 2009 at 12:49 pm

    Fur-kids – cracked me up.

  70. 114 ccbebe October 24, 2009 at 7:16 pm

    Hey girl – thanks for the comment, and yes men (especially married men still out on the prowl in a mainly college aged bar) can most definitely be pigs! Sounds like you got a good one though 🙂 Keep up the blogging and feel free to follow me at ccbebe.wordpress.com.

  71. 115 sandyb October 25, 2009 at 6:25 pm

    Hey Jessica! Thanks for checking out my space. Glad I came by to visit yours – you’re one cool chick.

    Blogstalking… on!

  72. 116 Michelle October 26, 2009 at 4:07 pm

    Commence stalking! Tracked you down from your comment on my site. Looking forward to keeping up with all of your adventures.

  73. 117 Sam October 27, 2009 at 3:06 pm

    Hiya, I have been stalking and lurking for the last week or so after stumbling across you on this blogroll http://maureenlynn.wordpress.com/ , and being intrigued enough to wonder just exactly what a booshy is.

    At the risk of making your head explode with yet more compliments, I really enjoy the way you write and express all your various angstacies and ecstacies, and you’re now on my daily blog rounds.

    Thanks for taking the time!

  74. 118 Rose October 29, 2009 at 1:31 pm

    I am a constant lurker! Sorry,…
    I have three fur-kids at home – three dogs, small medium and large…

  75. 120 Ellie Mae October 30, 2009 at 8:52 pm

    Hey chica
    Love your writing style. I will be stalking from time to time.By the way, Benedryl in massive doses is AWESOME. It was one of my pre-meds for chemo and my fav infusion of the day cuz it knocked my ass OUT.

  76. 121 dirtclustit November 1, 2009 at 3:09 pm

    Hello there. I wandered in by browsing through my tag surfer (relationship tag appeared to be the string that I followed to your place)

    I can relate to many of your thoughts posted here. Thank you

  77. 122 Christine@ The Dishy November 5, 2009 at 5:30 pm

    Hey there,

    Interested to hear what your TOP SECRET secret is. I love cats too! I just got a new kitty, but he has no name… I don’t think it bothers him though because he’s busy attacking all the very menacing pieces of dryer lint, furniture, dust bunnies, string, plastic trees, feet, hair, and shoes he can get his little paws on….

    *BEEP* Hi, this is Leen from over at Books.etc, just stalking your blog back. I’ve only gave it a quick glance, but I like what I see, I think I will keep visiting you.

    Hehe, so you’re doing the writing marathon? How is that working out? I was thinking of competing as well, but my current listlessness and uninspiredness put me off the idea.

    Well, bye for now.

  79. 124 theycallmejane November 6, 2009 at 9:59 am

    The Kreativ Blog award was well deserved! Glad to have discovered you, too!

  80. 125 dryactivebeast November 8, 2009 at 8:00 pm

    I love a well-written blog! I don’t know how you found me first, but I’m pleased to have found you back. :o)

  81. 126 fourpates November 9, 2009 at 9:31 pm

    OH. MY. GOD. I clicked to you from your comment on my blog (thank you BTW, we all love comments, right?!). And I laughed so damn hard I snotted on my computer screen (thanks for that, now I gotta clean the damn thing!). You crack me up and I’m so totally adding you to my blogroll…HOLLA!

    Thanks for the laughs!

  82. 127 liz November 11, 2009 at 6:30 am

    I have your blog at the top of my igoogle page and read your posts nearly every time you write. Really enjoy your writing Jessica.



  83. 128 Jennifer Lynn November 12, 2009 at 1:40 pm

    Have you in my reader. Love your blog!!! So funny:)

  84. 129 QwertyGirl November 12, 2009 at 6:08 pm

    I’ve been blog stalking you for a good month or so now.
    I found your blog because you commented on one of my posts ages and ages ago.

  85. 130 Kara "Sky" McGinty November 16, 2009 at 1:29 am

    Thanks for the comment on my blog! That’s how I found your’s, of course. 🙂 I’m rather intrigued by your blog, and I would most likely sit here and read every last entry tonight if I didn’t have to be all adult-like and go to sleep.

    I shall return! You have my vow! Hope to be blog buddies from hereafter!

  86. 131 Andrea November 17, 2009 at 4:33 pm

    Thanks for leaving me a comment and for the enjoyable read that is your blog! Actually, I’m kind of annoyed because I’m going to need to quit my job so I can just catch up with all the blogs I like, yours included. 😉

  87. 132 wild_thing November 18, 2009 at 6:11 pm

    I love your blog! Funny and honest and poignant, all rolled into one.

  88. 133 XandraExpressions November 24, 2009 at 4:36 am

    A real treat to be reading you, love your honesty and sense of humor. Please don’t quit the blog now that I have just discovered it! Keep on!
    thanks for sharing, cheers

  89. 134 Rachel Halsey November 27, 2009 at 1:15 pm

  90. 135 Jenny Martin November 29, 2009 at 6:11 pm

    Thanks for the comment Jessica. Your blog looks great, I’m adding you to my Google Reader now. 🙂 How did NaNoWriMo go?

  91. 136 the american December 6, 2009 at 9:23 pm

    loving the blog! adding yours to my blogroll.

  92. 137 hellesbelles86 December 8, 2009 at 2:29 pm

    I followed you over here from my blog where you commented the other day and I’m glad I did 🙂

  93. 138 Cara August 30, 2011 at 9:51 pm

    You are some serious hilariousness. I am really enjoying reading your blog!!! Thanks for being funny 🙂

  94. 140 thetravelingprophet January 31, 2012 at 3:58 pm

    Once upon a Tuesday afternoon at work I stumbled across your blog. And by “stumbled,” I mean I saw your sunrise entry in the “Freshly Pressed” section. After reading it I thought to myself, “Wow, that’s a lot of frigging dedication to waking up at an ungodly hour; kudos to her! Oh, hey! She lives in Colorado! I’m FROM Colorado!” Then I did the blog-stalky thing you mentioned above and read your about me and came here and now I am leaving you a moderately stalky comment. Ahhh, the beauty of being socially inept.

    • 141 Jessica January 31, 2012 at 4:22 pm

      So glad you stumbled!! What part of CO are you from? As you probably know already, I’m not a “native” but love it here!!

      Mild stalking is acceptable, I think… 😉

      • 142 thetravelingprophet February 1, 2012 at 1:07 am

        I’m from central CO in a pretty small town (about 5,000 people) called Salida. It’s known for its boat and kayak races every year (FIBArk), but other than that I think most people have never heard of it before in their lives!

  95. 143 Lisa @ TexturedRoad January 31, 2012 at 6:26 pm

    Clicked through to your sunrises from Freshly Pressed and kept reading. I look forward to reading more–especially about the baby and new motherhood. Thanks for sharing this cool stuff with us!

  96. 145 erica banks krug January 31, 2012 at 8:33 pm

    Still in awe that your blog is called booshy. I checked out Tim’s photo gallery and saw an insanely gorgeous photo of the moon setting over the Tetons. I lived in Jackson for a few years and I miss the mountains like crazy. I also looked at your adorable pets. So now I’m letting you know.

    • 146 Jessica February 1, 2012 at 12:19 pm

      We’d live in Jackson if we could figure out how. That place is absolutely gorgeous! We LOVE it. I mean, L-O-V-E it.

      Our pets are crazy…just in case that wasn’t clear anywhere. 🙂

      So glad you stopped by!!

  97. 147 trishgruenwald January 31, 2012 at 8:53 pm

    Congrats on being Freshly Pressed! I’m completely going to stalk your blog! You are a fabulous writer. Feel free to stop by my blog sometime. I’m hoping to have my site stats hit double digits one day (LMAO!!!).

    • 148 Jessica February 1, 2012 at 12:20 pm

      Stalk away. It’s normal behavior these days, I think… 😉

      Also? I know how you feel about your stats – I used to be crazy watching them and all…and then I stopped caring as much…I mean, I love to know people actually want to read what I have to say but…I don’t know. I just stopped worrying about it as much.

      Just keep doing what you’re doing. Readers will come 🙂

  98. 149 Mandy January 31, 2012 at 9:06 pm

    I’m an American living in Taiwan, and the name of your blog – “boo-she” – means “no” or “don’t do that”.

    不行 – yay Mandarin.

    I loved your sunrise post, which is what brought me here, and I’m (supremely, uncomfortably) jealous you live in Colorado. I’m trying to make my way back to the States, and living by the mountains would be a dream come true.

    Congrats on the little one! Exciting!

    • 150 Jessica February 1, 2012 at 12:21 pm

      That is actually really funny about booshy…

      You really will have to try and figure out a way to visit the mountains…they really are breathtaking! I actually want to make my way over your direction to visit at some point. I’m 1/4 Japanese, so I figure I should visit part of my heritage. 🙂

      • 151 Mandy February 1, 2012 at 8:56 pm

        The sad thing is that Taiwan has a beautiful mountain range – the pollution just hides them most days.

        I hope to head up to Japan myself in the next couple of months. Once your Little One is old enough (A) for that many hours on a plane, and (B) to appreciate the experience, taking him to Japan would be a monumental experience!

  99. 152 Pamela Tomkins February 1, 2012 at 9:45 am

    Freshly pressed brought me here, I am new to WordPress and have imported my old blog to look as if I am productive, you will be one of my must visits! I have one called attic24 who charms me as I am into crochet but she ‘talks’ just like you telling a story, another is suzeweinberg. All this is because I am shy! Covering up my mark with others, apologies!!!
    I am an English woman living in North Wales with two fur-kids, cats called Meg and Katie, oh and a hubby lurking somewhere!

    • 153 Jessica February 1, 2012 at 12:23 pm

      Aw, thank you so much!!

      No worries about being shy/covering up! That’s the beauty of writing and telling stories, no?

      Cute names for your fur-kids! And the hubby…they’re always lurking… 🙂

  100. 154 claresworriesandwisdom February 1, 2012 at 11:14 am

    I was also brought here by Freshly Pressed. Your commitment and discipline in your sunset picture post has really inspired me. I’m just now starting to look around your site!

  101. 156 Diana February 2, 2012 at 2:13 am

    Just happened upon your blog. It is really cool!

  102. 157 Sara February 3, 2012 at 8:31 am

    Chanced upon your blog after seeing your project on capturing the sunrise for 365 days. Very inspiring and I see that you;’re a runner? I’m an avid triathlete myself, makes me want to start a project 365 that’s endurance sport-related (: Great blog!

  103. 158 ChristineSian February 4, 2012 at 6:24 am

    Your blog is great, fun to read, thanks for that! Mine is a little heavy and a deep topic as I’m helping oppressed people on the other side of the world and yours is a great outlet to get away from my new world around the world from America. I have a cat and a dog (like you.. crazy coincidence right? ha!) back home that I miss like crazy (sometimes more than I miss the humans). Enjoy your new bundle of joy and thanks for the good read 🙂

  104. 159 rastaphoto February 5, 2012 at 5:49 am

    What I saw here made me happy. dedication and love with a bit of sunrise obsessions.
    i think your baby will be happy
    Perfect love

  105. 160 Ian Gardner February 5, 2012 at 7:50 pm

    Did you know that all the things you achieve, including the “unbelievable” ones, you created as challenges before you were born? The purpose of life is very beautiful, all positive no matter how painful or difficult. It took me over 62 years to become aware of this and make it available free to all who wish to read about it.
    Go for it – those who read this and are ready.

    I enjoyed your ‘about me’ story, and your sunrise project–INSPIRING!!

  107. 162 From the Hatchery May 5, 2012 at 10:20 am

    Hey! I just discovered your blog via The Milk Tree. Great stuff! I especially dig your “About” section. Looking forward to visiting again soon …

  108. 163 Adrianne June 15, 2012 at 2:49 pm

    Searched “motherhood” in the topics section of WordPress and came across your most recent post. Loved it and the whole blog. Will definitely be back again! And as a “seasoned” mother of a now 9 month old (9 months!!!!), I’m sure I’ll be able to impart all kinds of wise words on you. You’re welcome in advance. 🙂

    That’s a joke, by the way! No unsolicited advice from me, I promise.

    • 164 Jessica June 15, 2012 at 3:01 pm

      Adrianne – aw! Thank you! A d I totally got the sarcasm. 😉 I have a friend with a rambunctious 10 month old who is walking like an old pro (!!!!)….so I know your five month head start is really like five years at this point.

Comments are Awesome! I love them all!
