Last night’s Mad Men was awwwwwkard. I can’t even possibly count on my fingers and my toes how many times I cringed and squirmed for poor Don Draper as he sat in the offices of SC&P. But the funny thing is, as far as the stickiness of the episode goes, it was all Betty Draper Francis: Motherlast night. ...more

I'm Going to Be a Mom: I Can't Smoke

It probably sounds unbelievable, but at that moment, I just knew in my gut that I was carrying a child. Even though my boyfriend and I weren't actively trying for a baby, we knew it was a real possibility and embraced the thought of parenthood as well as any fancy-free couple could. The image of smoke reaching my baby tortured me, and I threw my half-done cigarette out the car window. That was that. ...more
