Hi. My name is Meg. I’m mom to my curious little girl, Holden, and my handsome little man, Gatsby (I was an English major).

oh, bother. was created out of my struggle as a working mom in a Pinterest world. I’m a DIYer wannabe and creative design appreciator, but I usually find myself falling a bit short in the execution. You’ll see.

You can also find me on TwitterFacebookPinterest, and Instagram, or hit me up at ohbotherblog{at}gmail.com

Birthday tradition: clock photo showing birth time @ohbotherblog So, despite the title of this post, Holden's first birthday was actually pretty great. But, as per ushe, a few things had to go wrong.

Clearly, our new birthday tradition of taking a photo with a clock at her birth time wasn't exactly well received.

Another birthday tradition I've decided to start that Holden actually did enjoy was... birthday pizza!

And, while the rainbow cupcakes for tomorrow's party turned out fabulously, Holden's smash cake was—yet again—a FAIL:

Mini layer cake FAIL @ohbotherblog

Looks like I'll be running to my favorite cupcake bakery, Just Cupcakes, tomorrow morning for a last-minute-emergency smash (cup)cake!

Otherwise, tonight has been spent baking, cleaning and decorating, all in preparation for tomorrow's birthday party. Stay tuned for pics tomorrow!
