Follow Friday – Newb Edition

4 Mar

This week’s Follow Friday post features photos I took of our friends’ newborn, the lovely and sweet Dominic. I’m ending this week with a migraine, but I sure as hell better feel better soon, because I have a full weekend ahead of me. Have a good one!

What is Follow Friday? It’s a Twitter meme that I have taken a couple steps further.  See my nomination for a Shorty Award for Follow Friday here. You can read more Follow Friday goodness here. Learn more about it in my FAQ.

MeganBoley It’s #oversharewednesday and I may have had a dream last night entirely around the premise of finding the perfect shapewear. #spanxfantasy

    After reading @theredqueen’s tweet, I cannot understand why we didn’t name our home network something that would allow me to passive-aggressively insult the evil neighbors. Missed opportunity!
