Blog Party

I'm linking up with the
to hopefully meet some new blogging mommies!

So, here's my deal:

This blog is my private-public journal of my adventures...which include my roles as mommy (first and foremost), military wife, PhD student, and crazy dog person.  It's my outlet for the ups and downs of daily life--a place for me to get out the things that swim around in my head keep me up at all hours of the night. 

So, what do I write about?

My amazing daughter, of course. 

Our two dogs.
Marine wife-life.

Attempts to balance my competing roles.

And all sorts of other randomness from music to my social awkwardness to sociology to whatever is going through this crazy mind of mine at the time. 

Thank you so much for checking out my little piece of blog-land!  I hope you'll follow me on this crazy journey.   And don't forget to link up at 5 Minutes for Mom.


  1. Hi Beth! Visiting from the UBP because I couldn't resist your blog title. Pure awesome. Also, I work in sociology, so obviously we're kindred spirits. Looking forward to reading more!

  2. Hi Beth! Great to meet you at the UBP! I'm a new blogger but loving it! I love that you wrote that you can relate anything your life to a dog... I am so the same way! I have one crazy, wild Springer Spaniel. Love her so much. She is my shadow! Have you heard the saying "Wag more, Bark less".. great philosophy on life! Happy Blogging!

  3. Visiting from the UBP11-I'm quite random and socially awkward myself, so I think I'm going to like it here!

  4. I'm here from the UBP too. Love your dogs. Is the brindle one a Boston terrier? My family is currently obsessed with Bosties, but we haven't gotten one yet. hope you have a great party.

  5. I'm visiting from UBP too! It's my first time to do something like this - and I'm so excited to meet and read about other people. Can't wait to "keep in touch".
    Also excited to read about all your busy endeavors.

  6. love your blog title. and another mom who's attempting to balance family and PhD work. whew. we can sleep when we're 70, right?
