Surprise!

Yippeeeee!!!

I am thrilled to welcome all my SITStahs to my teeny-tiny corner of the blog-o-sphere! I don't know you from Adam, but I can tell you I absolutely adore you for taking the time to stop by and explore my ludicrous life.

You know what's so wonderful about being a featured blogger on SITS? Well, in all honesty, there are many, but let me just focus on one...

It's all about me! And we, moms deserve every pat on the back that comes our way, don't we? {I see you nodding.}

And when is the last time, we, as busy mothers can say that?

Mother's Day? Be real. Even if you get breakfast in bed or a homemade card, you know the kitchen will still need some attention, or you'll find yourself vacuuming stray glitter from underneath the dining table.

Your birthday? Maybe, but if you home is full of teens like ours is, you might find yourself grounding one of your teens until they hit menopause. Instant joy kill right there.

Your anniversary? That would be nice, but it's a day I enjoy making it special for my husband and spending it with my family, even if our teens are over it and would rather be in their rooms IMing their friends.  {Feel free to roll your eyes and sigh with me.} And God forbid you find yourself celebrating your first anniversary while visiting your new in-laws who live in another state... and in a DRY county. A big shout out to my BIL and his wife for making the trek across the state line in an effort to remedy the situation. After a week with not a bottle of pinot noir, a Bartles & James margarita flavored wine cooler never tasted so good.

Valentine's Day? No way... I put lots of work into making that day stand out. And no matter how much planning goes into my V Day, it is always under threat of being thwarted by my nemesis, the pager.

But being chosen to be a featured blogger on SITS? Now, that is a special day I can call mine!

What?! You don't know SITS?
You're missing the boat!


I hope you enjoyed your time here with me and will stay to poke around a bit.

Leave me a comment and follow and I just know we'll be lifelong friends!

  3. Hi Emma, I love your voice - you're very funny! It's so nice to meet you from SITS. You are an excellent reminder that doctors are people too, with wives who have to pick up the slack when that darn pager goes off. Hope you meet lots of new friends today. :)

  15. Happy SITS day! I must say, that pic of the high heeled skeleton foot is making me re-think my sparkly Kate Spade's! (Clogs, anyone?)

    1. I only wear them when I know I'll be sitting down for the majority of the evening. Otherwise, I'm praying the numbness sets in and I don't have to walk around too much. :(

  17. Congrats on your SITS day! Enjoy the spotlight. You have my sympathy on step-mothering. I was one and did not enjoy a second of it. It is way tougher than most people realize.

  18. Happy happy SITS day! Can I tell you how much I love the x-ray graphic of the foot on your page? LOVE!

    Sounds like you live a very busy--but super fulfilling--life. So very glad you have a day all your own to enjoy some blog comment love. I enjoyed stopping by here today. Also? What's a dry county. That doesn't REALLY exist, does it?!

  21. Happy SITS DAY!!! Enjoy YOUR special day. I don't think I could handle being a Dr's wife, see I am a jealous type and that pager would be my worst nightmare. More Power to Ya!

  22. Happy SITS day! Wow I just LOVE your header. Seriously it is great! I work in a hospital as a SLP so know all about the dreaded pager. Thankfully I can leave mine at home.

  28. You certainly deserved the SITS recognition after all the sacrifices of being a mom and wife. I'm very happy for you. I have 2 teenagers and two younger ones. It is a full-time job. I think I'll go to bed and cry for myself now. Hahaha!

  32. Oh congratulations on your SITS Day today! Good for you... you get a day that is yours-all-yours, that no one can claim.

    Your blog is a trip! I LOVE the way you write. It's funny, I never gave any thought about my doctor's wives (and what they're like -- and what you go through). So thanks for sharing your perspective. Like I said, I've really enjoyed reading your blog.

    Please excuse me... I have go. I have to go find out what happened in Part Two of your Doctor's Retirement Dinner post!

  34. Love it! Spoken like a true cynic - I know it well ;) You are quite right about all those special celebrations that are supposed to be for you, but always turn out to be about everyone else. I hope your SITS day is everything you wished for, and it truly is a day you can solely celebrate you!!
