Keeping it Sunny (Recipe: Blueberry Sunrise Muffins)

Would you like to know what happened to me while I was at church yesterday? I was sitting in mass when my 3 year old told me she needed to go potty. I took her back to the ladies restroom, she did her thing, I bent down to help her pull up her panties and […]

Lazy Days (Recipe: Eggadilla)

I am typically an early riser. Not necessarily because I want to be but because I have been forced to be by a husband who chooses to go to work at 5:30am and kiddos who somehow inherited some insane early rising gene. Why is it that even when they go to bed late, they still […]

Thoughts on Pregnancy (Recipe: DeLynn’s Cinnamon Rolls)

Big City Living (Recipe: Bacon & Egg Cups)

I grew up in a town with a population of a whoppin’ 1,000 residents. As children, we would walk the streets freely after dark without our parents worrying about us being harmed. My friends and I would sit up on the curb of the local convenience store or on the bench outside of the post […]

Commitment Issues

This weekend, as I was cleaning out my bathroom cabinets, I came to the realization that I have some serious commitment issues. Not with relationships, not with work and not with family obligations.

There was a time…

There was a time in my life when I used to buy all of my intimate apparel at Victoria’s Secret. I would not be caught dead without a matching bra and pantie ensemble on and that matching ensemble had to have the same colors in it as my outfit did. Even though people would not […]

American Pride

I am a big, fat crybaby. I’ll just get that out in the open right now. I can be at a wedding of people I don’t even know well and the music will start, and I am bawling. Someone can tell me a story about something sad that happened, and without even hearing all of […]
