1 Year With Braces as an Adult

Last March I published a post about me getting braces as an adult. I actually had the braces installed (?) on February 21st, I just published the post at a later date. But as I write this, I’ve been in braces for 12 months. Back then, I had a few pros and cons that I […]

I am a Dirty Girl! & Tips for Mud Runs

Back in January I won a ticket to a Dirty Girl mud race from Average Moms Wear Capes. I had just finished Run For Your Lives (the Zombie 5k) back in November and next on my radar was Tough Mudder. But a 5k that I could run with my sister, all bonding-like, sounded like fun. […]

Snow Mountain, Georgia – Christmas

February last year my sister went on an impromptu trip to Stone Mountain, GA to experience their Snow Mountain activities. She asked if we’d join her, but I am more of a planner than a spur-of-the-moment kinda gal. But the trip sounded like so much fun that I started saving for our own Snow Mountain […]

Run For Your Lives #weARErunningfromzombies

CODE FOR 2013 RUNFORYOURLIVES – Save 15% – ZPTD3 So I ran my first 5K last week – Run For Your Lives. It was not just my first 5k, it was also my first obstacle course (with mud) and the opportunity to run from zombies. Don’t think you have to be the most athletic to […]

Want a New Pet? Meet Ours! #adoptapet

Back in June we had to say good-bye to our boxer, Tempest. She had Degenerative Myelopathy, which leads to paralysis in dogs. You can read her story on her post. We were a two-dog household, with our other dog being Sookie the Shar-Pei. For a while after Tempest passed away, Sookie seemed lost. And then […]

Picked Up at the Grocery Store.

As we all know, the grocery store in the evening is actually a pretty good place to get hit on. Strange, I know, but it happens a lot. So the other day my husband stopped by Publix after working out to pick up some rice cakes. As he bends over, all sexy-like I imagine, he […]

Mama’s Got a New Ride! Meet my Chevrolet Traverse!

I am so psyched! It’s like my birthday, Christmas and Valentine’s all rolled into one! My husband bought me a new car! I don’t think there are enough exclamation points to show how excited I am. As you know, many moms look to other moms on advice, from parenting techniques to choices for your family. […]

Strawberry Supreme Cookies: Recipe

So, I bake most Fridays. Nothing fancy, just something fresh-baked so we can enjoy the sugary smells coming from the oven. I was at a loss about what to bake one Friday, when I remembered how easy Funfetti Cookies are (and how delicious too). And although I had no Funfetti Mix handy, I just modified […]

LEGO DC Universe Super Heroes Batman JetSki #30160

Just a few years ago LEGO had LEGO Batman available. I thought my son was too young to enjoy the sets at the time, so I didn’t buy them. And by the time he really got into LEGOs, the LEGO Batman theme was off the shelves and selling for $$$ on Amazon. I felt bad […]

Tempest the Boxer

When I was younger, I always wanted a boxer. I thought they were beautiful, strong dogs. And when I met my husband he was in love with the same breed. One year before we got married a boxer walked into our lives, but not in the way we imagined. She was around 1 – 2 […]
