Five Things Friday with Bonus 90s Photo!

My friend Missie over at The Wheezy Runner tagged me in a meme to share some random facts about myself. Sure, why not. I feel like a lot of people know these things individually about me, but maybe not all five things at once ....more

Never Just Another Day

Today the boys went to school. I worked a full day. I ran an errand and bought shiny things at the grocery store ....more

52 Weeks of Brotherhood: The One with Football

Football season is back. And by football season, I refer not to the NFL or college or even high school football. I don’t actually even mean Pee-Wee or whatever we call little kid league football, because nope ....more
