My Best Friend Married A Woman

I just went to a wedding unlike any other. My best friend married a woman. And my best friend is a woman. A myriad of valid excuses could have prevented me from being there. The cost of travels out of state, scheduling childcare for several days in my absence… The awkwardness of not knowing very many people there. And the … Read more

Getting A Haircut

This qualifies as an adventure? Why yes, yes it does. I don’t even remember the last time I went to a salon to get a haircut. I don’t even remember where I went when I did. I’ve been trimming it up at home for so long I just kind of forgot salons existed. It has … Read more

Taking A Painting Class

As part of my campaign to get out of the house and live a little, I decided to take a painting class. I used to love art in high school and I was good at it, but that was more than 20 years ago. I thought I would try to revisit an old passion and … Read more

I’m Going To Let Go, Jack. I’m Going To Let Go.

Titanic is one of my favorite movies. I remember waiting in line at Blockbuster way back when, excited to buy my two-tape VHS copy of the movie when it first came out. Needless to say, times have changed. It’s not a favorite because of the sappy love story, though I was certainly a fan at the … Read more

What Do You See In This Picture?

I love to people watch. It’s one of my favorite things. I’m often in the car waiting out a nap with a sleeping toddler, and store parking lots are a great place for this. I’m not trying to be creepy, I’m just fascinated with people. Where are they going? Where have they been? What are … Read more

Do You Want Someone To Like The Fake You?

I want to share some pics with you. They are pictures of my messy house. I am waving the white flag, my house is littered with toys much of the time, there are little handprints all over my fridge (stainless steel is not my first choice in appliances) and there is spilled milk on the … Read more

Run Dog Run! Whoa, Little Fella.

When I was a senior in high school,  my best friend Brenna and I were cruising around town one afternoon when we came to a stop sign at an intersection. We were waiting for a big oil truck to cross in front of us and what we saw next still makes us laugh until we cry, and … Read more

No More Travel Until Everyone Walks, Talks and Pees in the Potty

Traveling with kids is not for the weak. Here is my adventure flying with two kids alone.

The kids are back in school! Did you go on vacation anywhere over the break? In my opinion, there is no such thing as a vacation when you are traveling with little people. I define a vacation as a relaxing trip, and having kids in tow is anything but. My friend Val recently took a long … Read more

What I Learned at Pee Wee Basketball Camp

I stand at a modest 5’1, but I was not the one enrolled in the basketball camp, my 6-year-old son was. And can I just say that watching 5 and 6 year olds learn how to play basketball is the cutest, funniest and most nerve-racking thing I have ever seen? It’s cute because the basketballs are as big … Read more

Monster Trucks, Skating and Painting Oh My

As I looked back on my writings of 2013, I saw several posts where I was often frustrated and worn out as a stay at home mom. That’s sometimes simply a part of the deal, but it doesn’t always have to be. Now that the baby is older and I’ve found my footing, I’m going to take … Read more
