How to Change a Flat Tire (and when to call Les Schwab for help!)


I forgot to share the flat tire video! And yes, this is about a real flat tire on a real car, not a code phrase for a hot new liposuction procedure targeted at middle aged moms who are sick of running and eating vegetables instead of sleeping and eating cupcakes all day. Not that I know […]

International Society of Hopscotch


I originally posted this a year ago, on December 5, 2009, but when I saw the amazing Mizfitonline’s post about her daughter playing hopscotch and the health benefits of hopping today, I remembered that I actually started this International Society of Hopscotch. Perhaps it’s time to hop to it again? In my ongoing quest for fun fitness […]

Getting my Groupon: Why Google should buy me


Google offered to buy Groupon for $6B today, and Groupon said no. I think Google should buy me, since they obviously have some extra cash now. Here are the top five reasons Google should buy me: I can get my group on. I’m good at starting groups. I started Chubby Mommy Running Club in Eugene […]

Does Sarah Palin mow her lawn? If I’m President, will I have to?


I have not watched Sarah Palin’s Alaska reality show yet, so I have not seen her house, or her yard on TV or in real life. But from the pictures, it looks like the yard is big, and someone’s gotta mow it. I’m assuming Todd mows their lawn, because Sarah’s so busy. I’m sure she […]

Sarah Palin Looks Just Like Me! Should I run for President, or just get my own reality show?


Sarah Palin for President? Huh. It could work out well for me, actually. Some people think I look like she does, so maybe I’d get some bonus perks if I walked into a coffee shop, or a hunting lodge, or on set at Fox News, or into the oval office. Maybe I should run for […]

Is Your Baby too Chubby? Try Baby Spanx!


I’ve been researching and writing about all the snarky, mean fat people stuff all week at Cafe Mom’s “The Stir” blog, in response to the Marie Claire fiasco. So, when Roxanne posted this funny Saturday Night Live spoof on Spanx, it made me laugh. Enjoy!

Chubby Mommy Runner Joins University of Oregon’s Track Team


Okay, so maybe I’m not officially on the team, and maybe I just saw them in the parking lot up at Hendrick’s Park in Eugene after my walk, and, I admit I can’t run quite as fast as any of them (since we all know U 0f O has one of the best track programs […]

Pigs in a Blanket and the Day My Skirt Fell Down at Rockefeller Center


We went to Ye Olde Pancake House for this week’s Sunday Morning Marriage and Breakfast Review. We haven’t been there since 1995. It looks exactly the same. A dated, but clean place trying to look Swedish. Sort of. As soon as we sat down in the periwinkle blue-backed booth and saw the white spinny stools […]

An American at SFO: @juliejulie goes to NYC #1


I’m sitting at the San Francisco airport, waiting for my red eye flight to Newark. To my left, a chic European couple. Their style is effortless. Even their somewhat thin, stringy hair looks like they want it that way on purpose. They easily find a table near an outlet and pull out their Mac Books […]

The one about the Hobo and the Klondike Bar


On Saturday mornings I’ve been forcing the kids off the screens and outside for family exercise. They pretend they hate it at first, but once we settle into the walk or hike, it’s not so bad, especially if they can con us into incorporating ice cream into the trip, somehow. Yesterday we walked down the […]
