This month, I’m participating in WordPress’s 30-Day Blog Challenge which means I’ll be posting or doing a new task to make MommyEnnui better every day. (See how positive and proactive I am in 2014?) The challenge is geared toward new bloggers, so some of the things I’ve already taken care of, like writing an “About Me” page and coming up with a name for the blog so I may be playing fast-and-loose with the rules a bit, but you’d expect that of me anyway, wouldn’t you?
I’m getting a bit of a late start, so I’ll be doing a little catch-up. The first day’s challenge was to write a page telling you who I am and why I started this blog. You may or may not have already checked out my About page (if you haven’t, you may do so now…I’ll wait). Short and sweet, but you get the idea.
I feel like I owe you more, though, so I’ve compiled this photo gallery in an effort to give you a more complete picture of what everyday life is like at Casa MommyEnnui. I hope you enjoy monotony and minutia. I mean, who doesn’t, right?

My house looks like a girl-bomb went off inside.
Even Buddha has been unable to hold off the onslaught of pink fluff and macaroni necklaces.
I drink too much tea and spend too much time on Pinterest.
In fact, with a blog and a husband in new media advertising, computers have taken over my entire existence.
I love to cook. (Except for weeknight dinners. Ugh!) My spice collection is vast and somewhat alphabetized thanks to Ad Man.
Don’t be too impressed, though. This is how he puts his clothes away.
I feed Biggie and Smalls only homemade, gourmet meals.
I also love to read and am mildly obsessive-compulsive.
I recently pulled out my old vinyl collection and gave it to my 13 year-old neighbor. His mom, my friend A, had to explain that you must flip the record over to hear the second half of the album. I aged approximately 15 years that day.
After 6 years, my house remains in a constant state of un-done-ness.
Occasionally, Ad Man and I do wild things in our bedroom like letting the kids help paint the walls.
My daughters are cute.
But, sometimes they make me feel like this. (‘Study for the Head of a Screaming Pope,’ Francis Bacon, 1952)
I feel like our relationship is deeper and more fulfilling already. Don’t you? I promise, in 2014, I will continue to share far more about myself than you could possibly want to know. Now, I want to know more about you! Please comment with at least one random fact about yourself and I promise to forever hold it close to my heart. Unless, of course it’s super embarrassing, in which case I’ll most likely laugh my ass off and tell everyone I know. I’m good like that.
