Some Points Of Interest

October 17, 2012

1. I rarely ever talk about politics here on the blog. For one, I don’t know enough about foreign policy or the energy crisis to stir up a debate, and for two, ELECTION DAY HURRY UP AND GET HERE! I will say this however: If you are one of those people who spout off, calling […]

The Bearer Of Bad News

October 12, 2012

If you’ve spent any amount of time around here this week, you’ve probably noticed a somber tone in my writing. While I try to keep things light around here (because let’s face it, people have enough of their own drama without coming here and reading about mine!) honestly, that’s just not possible all the time. While […]

Happy Thoughts

October 7, 2012

Our little family has had a stressful weekend. I am trying to occupy my mind with happy thoughts. Like my sweet, handsome fellas. Happy times in the Jeep. Beautiful sunsets on the beach. Knowing that this man comes home to me after a long day week at work. Happy reunions. World travels. Crazy, happy times.  And […]

We’ve Come A Long Way, Baby!

June 26, 2012

McDaddy and I graduated from the same high school in 1992. In a lot of ways, it seems like a lifetime ago. Despite the fact that we grew up just fifteen miles apart (and the fact that he lived less than a mile from my grandma), had it not been for a school closing and subsequent consolidation, […]

Speaking From Experience

June 3, 2011

What this girl:  Would have told this girl: Thirteen years ago…. McDaddy is not a big fan of the nagging, so stop it! Nor does he like whining. Cooking will be a lot easier if you plan out a menu. AND LEARN TO COOK. McDaddy is methodical in thought and behavior. The quicker you understand […]

Engaged In A Fierce Battle

January 12, 2011

Back in 2008, I joined the YMCA near our house and started on a weight-loss journey. My goal was to lose a pound of week for forever as long as it took to get healthy. I stayed with it hot and heavy for 25 weeks. I lost 25 pounds and it felt good knowing that […]

My Annual Recap

December 31, 2010

My long-time bloggy friend, Jo-Lynne from Musings of a Housewife is hosting a blog re-cap carnival (complete with a snazzy button) and I thought it would be fun to play along, just as I did last year when I posted My Year In Review. I’ll be looking back at the first line (or two, or three depending […]

You Capture – Inspiring

November 18, 2010

What inspires me? I’ve discovered this week that finding things that inspire me isn’t nearly as easy I thought it would be. When I think of the word inspire, I think of three things, really. My hubby and my boys. They inspire me to be a better person. A better wife. A better mom. Instead […]

Piles

October 14, 2010

Everywhere I turn, there are piles. Piles of laundry. Piles of mail that needs filed. Piles of stuff in the freezer, still nothing that looks appealing. Piles of stuff on the kitchen counter that needs sorted. Piles of shoes by our front door. A pile of used tissues in my van. Gross, I know. A […]
