  • Looking at 2014

    2013 got derailed in a couple of ways, namely my new and markedly more intense job and Mom’s death. Between these two things, I’m impressed to have just survived the year, yet, when I look back on my 2013 resolutions, I didn’t do so badly.

  • Playing Catch-Up

    The kids were feeling a little Grinchy.

    Well things are rolling along sometimes fairly normally. The kids are doing great, growing and learning by leaps and bounds. We register Ben for kindergarten next month. I can hardly believe it.

We made a huge mess of the kitchen and then cleaned it up like good elves. We had high hopes of turkey trotting like we […]

  • Happy Birthday Matty!


    My main squeeeeeze and numero uno Dad of the Year is turning 33 today. I truly appreciate him EVERY DAY, even when I’m giving him crap about not rinsing off his plate of mustard (don’t ask), but especially on this day, I want to reflect on his awesomeness. We have had a crazy month or […]

Favorite Savory Delight: We are having quite a few people over on Tuesday and I think some pulled pork in the crockpot is the perfect dinner solution! Favorite Funny: I do love […]
