Exciting happenings with the outsidemom crew!

Today’s post is a little different. There have been some exciting things afoot in the lives of the people who make outsidemom function. These new developments bring me such joy, I have to share. Please indulge me while I update you on happenings in our personal lives, so that if you’ve thought that perhaps we seemed distracted, reset assure we kind-of were.

You don’t ever really hear about Travis, but he’s my brother (and world’s greatest Uncle). I’d been thinking about this blog for years before it existed.  I’m 100% sure I would still be thinking about it if it wasn’t for Travis.  He designed it, got it working, helped me set up my facebook and twitter accounts, and fielded ten thousand questions as I took my first steps into the blogging world.

If, over the next year, my blog begins to falter, it’s because my brother has moved on to bigger and better things, but I couldn’t be prouder. Besides, when he’s rich and famous he can hire someone to fix all the weird things I’ve done to my blog trying to maintain it myself. His first single hit iTunes and his music video (shot in my old stomping grounds, so the scenery is fabulous) came out today. I’m not usually a country music fan, but one might say I’m a fan of Travis Marshall.

Did I mention I was proud? Oh, did I also mention he’s single…

Olivia got married a few weeks ago to a man I wholeheartedly approve of. They’ve been together for a few years, but finally made things official in a low-key ceremony atop a cliff overlooking the Rio Grande. The guest list consisted of 4 people, the attire was casual, the minister was her sister, her choice in footwear was amazing (the designer was Sorel for those into fancy footwear), the temperature was freezing and the whole thing was completely perfect for them.


I’m still pregnant. Another month or so to go; and feeling about a month or so overdue.

  1. I love the comment when you mouse over the picture of you: “Yep, still pregnant!” Hang in there, Lins. Almost done. If it helps, the picture is really cool!
    p.s. Love your jacket too… where’d you get that one?

    • Olivia – I got it at maternity consignment store, it’s so fabulous, it’s GAP, so it’s obviously hip. I’ll keep it around… ;)
