Fictional Friday

This weeks fictional Friday is the comparison of my best friend Andrea, to Lily Aldrin from How I Met Your Mother. When I started watching the show, I was instantly drawn to Lily's character. She made me feel like I knew her, could be friends with her, and then I figured out why. Lily reminds... Continue Reading →

Front Porch Embarrassment

There are a few different religions I'm aware of that use the door to door approach to share their gospel. Yesterday, I had a very awkwardly funny encounter with two of these people. I'm sure they're telling this story later too. As I got home from work, I immediately changed into the ugliest and comfiest... Continue Reading →

Awkward Uber

I, like a lot of people, use Uber when I travel. It's easy, convenient, and I don't have to find parking. They are also the most reliable designated drivers. A large majority of the drivers want to make the experience great for the passengers so they can get higher ratings, they have snacks, whatever music... Continue Reading →

Morning Interrogations

I'm not a morning person. At all. If my alarm wakes me, I need a good hour-hour and a half before human contact. If I wake up on my own, I just need my coffee and I'm good to go. So, Monday morning after spending the weekend away for my birthday, I'm not the most... Continue Reading →

Fictional Friday

It's Fictional Friday again! This week is about why my mother's fictional doppelganger is Kitty Forman. Let's face it, Kitty is pretty much the coolest of all of the TV moms. She's sassy, loving, and keeps everyone in line. Kitty is a nurturer, she takes care of everyone, and if anyone needs anything, they find... Continue Reading →

Daily Prompt With A Complimentary Tangent

Today's daily prompt was the word "gingerly". My mind went to the redhead reference immediately. Yes I know that's not what the actual definition of the word is, but what if it was? It would inevitably turn the word into its opposite meaning, because let's be honest, no ginger does anything "gingerly". We do things... Continue Reading →

32 Years Ginger

In honor of my 32nd Birthday, I thought I would write down 32 things I have learned in my 32 years. Not many of these will be useful. There really is a big difference in SPF 50 and 100. I don't care what the experts say, I'm an expert in not having melanin and my... Continue Reading →

An Open Letter to Coffee

Dear Coffee, Every morning, through sleepy eyes, and an awakened daze, I see you waiting patiently on the counter. I see you waiting to give me that breath of life that transforms me from a sleepy zombie to a high functioning tired mom. I smell you, brewing. It's your way of reassuring me, with that...

Hometown Tragedy

Bad things aren't supposed to happen in quiet, picturesque, sleepy little towns. They just aren't. This morning, the sleepy little town I grew up in was rocked by an absolutely disturbing tragedy. Hokes Bluff, my own personal Mayberry, was the macabre headline of the day. You hear about murder/suicide on the news, in books, on... Continue Reading →

The Little Things

The little things. You hear people talk about how "it's the little things that matter" all the time. But what does that really mean? Since Kent and I have been together, I finally figured out what that means. When you're in a relationship, it's easy to get complacent, comfortable, lazy. You know you love each...
