Ahoy! Or, more appropriately, hola! (The reason for that will reveal itself in a few sentences).

This post is my glorious, much-anticipated return to blogging. I’d compare it to that time Jay Z or Cher came out of their retirements, but they don’t have the following I do.

You’ll notice that my affinity for sarcasm is still here, as is my love for tacos and pretty thrifted dresses. Let’s break the latter down a bit more: This brand-new American Rag dress is from Value Village, and the first piece of post-pregnancy clothing I treated myself to. It’s a bit ironic because I actually could be super pregnant in this dress – it’s roomy. I think I got used to looking specifically for belly-friendly items – but hey! More room for tacos! (You could say “more room for baby number two!”, but if I ever get around to writing about my labour, you’ll understand why it will be some time before our little banana gets an apple or an orange to play with.)

Now, the tacos part: In keeping with post-pregnancy firsts, I wore this dress on my first date with Jentine since the B.C. era (Before Connor). It was predictably grand – we ate tacos and drank margaritas  and took pictures of our not-at-all-seasonally-appropriate attire while curious strangers looked on. I’m happy to report that hamming it up in front of a camera is very much like riding a bike: you feel a little wobbly at first, but you’ll be poppin’ that hip  in no time.

And now that I’ve muddied up a metaphor, I’ve hit every requirement for a typical post. I’d say that makes me officially back in the game.
