Dog Proofing with a Staple Gun & Chicken Wire

For the last few weeks, Ollie has been driving me crazy. Every time I would let him out into the fenced-in area of our backyard to do his business, he would run under our sun room instead.I think there might have been some bunny rabbits living under there, because one day a HUGE Ollie-sized rabbit came running out.Hmmm… maybe they were making some sweet cross-species love?...more

Confiscating my Doughnut

This morning after I had my annual lady-flower checkup appointment, I decided to stop by the gas station to fill up and grab myself a little treat. After filling up my tank and paying at the pump, I went inside and got myself two donuts and a medium coffee.I stood in the long line, fantasizing about biting into the sugary goodness of my Krispie Kreme and slowly made my way towards the front. There seemed to be some sort of hold up on one of the registers, but I ignored it and huffed the smell of my vanilla flavored coffee....more

I made a Meme... I think.

I took a picture of Ollie the other night and EVERY time I look at it I start laughing.You might remember it, because I posted it on Facebook and Instagram. In the instant I took the picture, Ollie TOTALLY looked like the character Crazy Eyes from Orange is the New Black.So, I left it on my phone. And giggled every time I saw it....more

BlogHer14 Prep: Plane Worries, Getting Ready & Fun Places to Visit

After months and months of looking forward to the trip, I’m finally leaving for the BlogHer conference super early on Wednesday morning.

Sitting next to someone who will not stop talking.2. Sitting next to someone who is super STINKY....more

Dollar Shave Club: Not Just for the Boys

As a lady, I like to have smooth legs. However, as a busy working mom… well, let’s just say that they aren’t as smooth as they were when I was on the dating scene.I recently heard about Dollar Shave Club and thought it sounded like a pretty cool concept. You pick a razor, pay a monthly fee and they send them right to your door. You can do the monthly plan, where you get new blades every month. Or, you can do the “not so hairy plan” where you get blades every other month. You can also pause and resume anytime you want....more

The End of Daddy Wednesday

Today marks the end of an era. Well, kind of an era. An era I’m calling “Daddy Wednesday” It’s like HUMP DAYZ, but with more snuggling.For the past 2 years and 4 months, Wednesday has been Travis and Jack’s special day.Sometimes they just lazed around the house in their pajama tops and no pants. Sometimes they took trips to Tractor Supply to sit on the tractors. Most of the time, they dressed alike. For a while they had a morning tumbling class where they’d run around on cheese mats....more
