Shit Happens at White House Black Market

Shit happens to me on a somewhat regular basis. Just the other day, I needed to partake in some retail therapy so I headed to my favorite store, White House Black Market. Typically I don’t shop, like ever, and when I do it is because I have an event which lures me into the store. So […]

Penny for Your Thoughts?

The other day while wasting time/avoiding doing any actual work I was scrolling through Facebook and came across the most adorable, the sweetest looking little puppy – and I was smitten. My good friend is an amazing lady that fosters dogs in her home and she had posted a picture of Penny, a 15 week […]

The Dorito As the Holy Trinity, Or Not

The other day we were driving home from some kid activity when my daughter announced with gusto from the backseat of the car, “I GOT IT!”, while shoveling handfuls of Doritos in her mouth. (I’m all about healthy snacks) I wasn’t really sure what the hell she was talking about, so I bit. “What do you […]

It is fall fuckers and there are all sorts of shit about this season that makes me scream Alleluia. My birthday is just around the corner, and I am not one of those people that dreads their day of birth. Nope I say bring that fucker on. My whole family has to be nice to […]

When A Gift is More Than You Expect

  My mother is going through a bit of nesting since my father’s recent passing.

I live twelve hours away so […]

Is it Safe to Leave Your Kid Home Alone?

My son is  just one month shy of being 13 years old. He is going into 7th grade, stands about an inch (shhhhh…) taller than me at 5’6″ and 190 pounds. He’s not a tiny guy. We use to call him Baby Godzilla when he was a toddler, now he’s just Godzilla. I’m giving you his baseball […]

The Truth About Vacationing with Kids

The evolution of a vacationing with my kids goes something like this…. The week prior to departure I am busy creating piles all over my dining room table. I make lists upon lists, and buy enough snacks to feed an army…or two kids on a five hour flight. Cameras are charged, backup batteries are charged, and electronic […]

Life Hacks for the Lazy Gardener

I’m not what one would refer to as having a ‘green thumb’ – mostly because of a lack of effort or any desire to have dirt stuck under my fingernails. This loss of lust for manual labor does not mean I don’t enjoy a beautiful landscape, or a lush flowerbed. I have pined over English […]

Morning Hell, or Heaven?

Most mornings in my house consist of me waking and dreading the next hour of my day. It is nonstop action from the moment my feet hit the floor, and believe me I’d rather them not. I have two dogs that insist upon being walked and fed before any other activity in the house is […]
