Ear Piercing : Mall vs Tattoo Studio

Ear piercings. A topic that can have mom groups screaming why they are right in mere minutes. You know me, I don't care. Sometimes the boat just needs to be rocked, and every single human on this planet is entitled to their opinion. What you are not entitled to, is pushing and forcing it upon... Continue Reading →

Changing Childhood

I watched one of my favorite movies last night, Stand By Me, and it made me sad. Sad because that kind of childhood basically died with our generation. There are no more magnificent adventures to be had before dinner because you can't go outside alone without the fear of being a victim of some sort... Continue Reading →

The Night The Lights Went Out In Georgia

Here in the South, football is a little more than a past time, it's in our DNA. You're born being groomed to be a fan of one team or another. In Alabama, it's generally a die-hard rivalry between Alabama and Auburn. Me personally, I only hate one team with every fiber of my being...Tennessee, but... Continue Reading →

Everything Hurts and I’m Dying: A Lesson on Thin Air

This is the story of our winter vacation over the past week. It did not go as planned, to say the least. Be prepared to laugh at my pain. The past week, Kent and I went to Snowshoe for a snowboarding trip. Kent knew what he was doing on a snowboard, I knew what one looked like.... Continue Reading →

No Resolutions

Every year, around this time, people start declaring their life changing resolutions. Let's face it, 95% of those won't even make it to the middle of January. We tend to tell ourselves we'll do things tomorrow, or when we have time. We never have time. Why do we wait until New Year's to make a... Continue Reading →

A Good Year

We are nearing the finish line of 2017, and there are a lot of strong emotions about the year. So many things happened in 2017, and the bad were so breathtakingly awful, that people are having a hard time seeing any good that came from '17 at all. I myself, was a pretty big fan...

Raise your hand if you might have gone a little overboard on your kids Christmas gifts this year! No one?....Just me? At least I can walk in Stella's new playroom and see what my bank account looks like in product form. My child is also extremely grateful for everything she is given, which makes it...

Mystery Blogger Award

This morning, on Festivus Eve, one of my favorite bloggers nominated me for a blogging award. How am I supposed to air any grievances when the blogging world continues to bear hug me? Seriously, the love I have received from ya'll has been overwhelming, and I thank you! So on to it... Jonathan over at Strange... Continue Reading →

Best of 17

http://2017 Favorites This is easily my favorite photo from 2017, and possibly ever. It was a long road to get here, but after 903 days, one less orphan. One less child in foster care. One less childless mother. One happily ever after.

Strange Traditions

Most normal families have certain traditions, especially at Christmas. My family is not what I would consider normal. With us, it's not so much the gift itself, but what absolutely ridiculous, absurd, impossible, and sometimes gross thing you have to do in order to get your gift. Yes, we are the family where any gift... Continue Reading →
