MFB: Ot & Et

So after a long needed break, it's time. 

it's the return of the 

I've loved this monthly feature since I started it & have gotten to know alot of gals alot better because of it. Also it's a great way to find new awesome reads each month!! 

This month, the feature is someone who I appreciate immensely! She was actually the 2nd blog I ever read, & the 1st blogger-buddie I ever starting talking to in this lovely internet world. I've grown to love tuning in to her little corner of the universe and consider her a very great friend! Plus her little ones, wardrobe, & witty charm can be quite addicting.
I'm happy to get to share her with all of you!

Now, allow me to introduce

Lindsey @

1. Tell us a little about yourself.
First off I just want to say "thank you!!!!!" to Jaimie for thinking of me. 
I love love LOVE Jaimie and got to know her through Twitter and 
her blog and am just so happy that I did because she is just. plain. awesome. 
Hopefully I can live up to being featured this month. If I come across lame or boring please know that I am a firecracker of excitement usually and please place any blame on my freakishly cute yet oh so demanding 
2 week old and 3 year old
and general lack of showers or sleep (yep, blaming the babies).

So anyways, my name is Lindsey and I blog over at Ot and Et 
 about my life and times as a working mom of Otto (the Ot) and baby Loretta (the Et). I'm a pretty easy going mom and blogger, just kind of trying to highlight the best stuff that happens in our house each week. My kids are really stupidly good looking by the way.

2. What is your favorite "Lazy Day" routine?
Error. Error. Does not compute. ::brain explodes::
But if I had one it would be the kiddos being babysat by a loving Nana, myself somewhere by a pool with a trashy gossip magazine in one hand and a boozey drink in the other relaxing after a nice 2 hour massage. 

3. Why/how did you get started blogging?
Almost two years ago I started my blog with a couple of mommy friends to compile things like craft projects, recipes, and things-to-do-in-Tucson for parents of little kids. Pretty quickly my mommy friends lost interest and I started just blogging about my own life rather than helpful hints or whatever. So it evolved into its current state (whatever that is) pretty quickly. Unfortunately, I'm too lazy/scared to change the web address from its original incantation so that's why it's still tidbitsparenting. Womp womp. Oh well!

4.What is your favorite
 "Lose Yourself" book of the moment?

Super excited to read Hunger Games! I know nothing about it but my best friend and I are going to read it together like a book club. I just bought it at CostCo this morning (see: my firecracker life of excitement) anyways soooo excited! I totally missed out on the Twilight book thing, I will not let Hunger Games pass me by!

5. How did you come up with the name of your blog?
See #3 above. One thousand tears of regret.

6. What is you favorite movie of the moment?
Midnight in Paris was freaking awesome. I adored everything about it! 

7. What is your favorite thing to blog?
Who knows... It changes all the time but revolves mostly around my little munchkins because they are way cooler, fun, funnier, and wayyyy better looking than me. They make for better blog material than the crazy worrying worry-wart weirdness that is usually going on inside my head. So I try to focus the blog on capturing our happy moments, more than anything else.

8. What is your top 
"sing&dance your heart out" song of the moment?
My husband is our deejay so half the time I don't even know what I'm listening to. But lately I have been jamming out with Otto to Bad Kids by the Black Lips.

That's a fun one and he's still too little to get the lyrics :)

9. Link the top 3 favorite blogs you wrote, 
& tell us what was behind your writing them.
(we were just messing around and ended up having the most fun and taking the sweetest pictures with things taped to Otto's face)
Easy Breezy Craft Project
(we actually did a project and it turned out awesome and i wrote a tutorial --> unheard of!)

 Baby Baby I'm Taken With Notion

(introducing the sweetest little lady: Loretta Cecille)

10. Who/what do you want to be when you 
"Grow up"?
Oh boy. Well, honestly, I would love to be a writer. I really really hope this happens some day. Maybe a children's book writer or some other type of author.

11. Link the top 3 blogs you read. 
Your "Daily Must Checks"
More like once a week if I have time! I would love to be able to read blogs daily though. I have about ten that I check that friends write and you can find their links in the sidebar of my blog. And then I try to keep up with

Harper's Happenings and Bleubird Vintage

 at least once a week because those moms seriously make me smile and inspire me.

12. Describe/show your top "Can't live without" Item
Right now it's nursing camis and boob pads (rock and roll!)

13. Whats your favorite time of the year?
 When we lived in Arizona it was Spring, like right now. But now that we're up here in Oregon I have to say the dead of Summer since that seems to be the only time it's sunny here. Bring it, summer! I'm ready!

14. What is something you would
 like to try in the future of your blog?
I'd love to move it from blogger to wordpress or typepad but I'm soooooo chicken to take the leap. Also, would love to become a better photographer, take my camera off automatic, and really have a more consistent and prettier "look" to the whole thing. But neither of those things may ever happen. They probably won't.

15. If you could have ANY superpower, 
what would it be & why?  
Is the ability to generate money out of thin air a superpower? Cuz I'd pick that one :)
 Mama wants a new pair of shoes!

16. If you could re-live any moment 
in your life, when & why?
There are so many. The moments/days right after each of my children were born would top the list. The days Rob and I spent in Paris were pretty amazing too. Time as a child with my grandma. Any of those.

So There you have it! She's a spunky lil mama who has the most adorable little ones I've ever seen! I love chatting with Lindsey, & look forward to many many more
 fun funny chats in days to come!
