You may have noticed...


...my ridiculously long absence.  No?  Well, that's ok, too.  Did you think I was never coming back?  I don't blame you.  I admit it.  I dropped the ball.  I checked out.  Big time.  It's not like I've never done it before... but, yes, this lasted months.  And months.  

I've been meaning to post something, but the more time stretched on to the expanses of the universe, the more I felt like it had to be something amazing and eloquent and perfect... and I just didn't have it in me.  Plus, I felt like my blog needed some updating (probably because it DOES) and I didn't have that in me either.  And now that my sabbatical officially reached three months, I feel like I'm completely starting over.  

So, hello.  You may remember me as Kimberly.  The "me" in bugaboo, mini, mr & me.

You may also have realized I have a new header.  Have you popped over from your readers?  Did you take a gander?  If so, you're already aware that bugaboo, mini, mr & me is expanding.  (in more ways than one!)

So does it help that you know I had a pretty good excuse?  That I was horribly busy cooking up a pretty huge project?  Hopefully so...

If you follow me on instagram (@bugabooblog), chances are good that months ago, you saw this:

Which I posted with the caption, "It's true.  My oven and I have something in common." (Which at first, some people did not understand. "You're clean?" "You're hot?")  But I apologize to those of you NOT on instagram who were left hanging in the dark thinking I died three months ago.

Though I feel a bit awkward approaching you after all this time (you still there??), and this post is nothing grand and eye-opening, I hope we can all consider this my big come-back - at least part-time.  I feel I've finally got my feet under me (somewhat) (and boy do I hope this isn't premature).  Truth is, the past few months have KNOCKED ME OUT - pretty much literally and I've experienced things I've never had to in the past (i.e. morning sickness, which as we all know should be called "all the time sickness") and I'm still exhausted much of the time.  I have managed to accomplish a few things in recent weeks, and I'm eager to start sharing with you all again!

Since every post needs pictures, I will leave you with this.  Best cure for morning sickness? Ginger snaps?  No.  Ginger ale?  Hardly.  Saltines?  Ha!  But I WAS able to finally figure it out.

Yep.  That's what this baby's been living on.  And I'm guilt-free, I tell ya.  GUILT-FREE.  Despite the two bags currently in the cupboard.

Thanks for sticking with me.

Ooh I'm so glad you're back. I did wonder where you went to. I really enjoy reading your posts. They make me laugh out loud - especially the one with the spilled egg on the floor! Congratulations on the baby, can't wait to read your posts again.
