Because the man bun shouldn’t be a thing

Last night, Caroline, P and I went to go see Guardians of the Galaxy 2 at the Alamo Drafthouse. I can’t believe we haven’t been there before but I also can’t remember the last time the three of us went to see a movie. It’s so rare that something is out that we all want to see and I guess when we have a free night we opt for something other than going to the movies ....more

Fashion Friday: Edition Happy Father’s Day!

We’ve had a busy few weeks around here but I’m so happy that we’re all back in the same house and have some time to just enjoy some summer. We haven’t even been to the pool yet. But I plan for all that to change over the next few days ....more

The first week and a half of summer

I am not kidding when I tell you that I am making myself sit on my couch write now and catch up on about six hundred and forty things, including writing a blog post. Caroline got out of school at 1:00 p.m. on Thursday, June 1st and I was under some sort of delusion that life would slow down and I would have completed all the projects on my to do list that are under impending deadlines. I couldn’t have been more wrong about all of that ....more

Fashion Friday: Edition if you like pina coladas and dresses

I really didn’t mean to go the whole week without posting anything but Caroline and I were in Nashville all week and just got home late Thursday night. I plan to make up for all of my non-writing with lots of writing next week to document the last week of my life. Here’s the short version: I’ve slept in my own bed one night ....more

A report from Kenya from my hotel room in Nashville

Big Boo Cast: Episode 76

We managed to get in one more podcast before Sophie leaves for Kenya on a Compassion trip and I leave for, well, Houston for a soccer tournament. We talk about packing, T.V. shows and movies that might be worth watching on Sophie’s long plane ride, pants that might work in the heat, SEC baseball, and a case of mistaken identity.

Fashion Friday: Edition happy memorial day weekend

It’s hard to believe that it’s Memorial Day weekend. But here we are and I’m sure for many of you this is your kick off to summer the way God intended it to be before state legislators decided we needed a certain amount of school hours no matter what makes sense. As for us, we will celebrate Memorial Day with a soccer tournament, studying for final exams and maybe a little pool time on Monday if it all works out ....more

And we are almost to the end of May

It’s been a busy week around here because I believe you are probably all aware that it is May. And that means I have given myself a few more days to finish up one last project. Or at least I thought it was one last project until my publisher reminded me I actually have a whole other list of things I need to have finished by mid-June so I’m super excited about that except maybe I’d rather take a nap from now until July 1 ....more

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 75

Sophie and I finally found time to record a new podcast and I don’t think either of us realized this was Episode 75 which feels like a milestone. Granted, it took us nine years to get here but I’ll take my milestones where I can find them. You can click here to listen ....more
