A Fun Family Day

Our Saturday was one of my favorite days in some time. It was so nice to spend a day just being a family. Karate Our day started off with a mock tournament at Xander's karate school. The school had heard many comments from parents like ourselves. Many of us were...

Summer Days

I really need to get better about watching the weather forecasts. I had no idea it was going to be such an amazing couple of days outside! Luckily, we had a chance to take advantage of them. The weather has been sunny without the typical mugginess of this time of...

Dancing in the Rain

I remember playing in the rain all the time when I was a kid. I loved when we would get that perfect combination of hot weather, pouring rain, and no thunder. I could spend an hour just running around in circles or splashing in the puddles as they formed. There was a...

Oldies & Car Games

I saw today's Wordpress blog prompt, lollipop, and immediately began singing in my head. Lollipop, lollipop, oh lolly, lolly...  That song makes me think of my dad and summer nights driving around town with the oldies channel blasting on the speakers. We used to play...

I’ve Been a Grumpy Gal

I have been so grumpy for the past several days and with no reason to be. It seemed like everything was irritating me. My son got up relatively quickly the last couple days instead of the usual last-minute, but I was still annoyed that I had to try a couple times...

Is That What You’re Wearing?

"Is that what you're wearing?" is what my six-year-old son asked me as we were getting ready to head out for his summer program today. Really?! Okay, so I admit that I was wearing an outfit that looked a lot like what I typically sleep in, but still. My husband has...

Back to Reality

I can't believe my husband's vacation is nearly over. It's been a mostly fun two weeks. On Monday, he'll be back to work and our son will be back to his summer program. An extended vacation like this usually drives me completely crazy because of the constant mess and...

One of Those Days

It has definitely been one of those days. I went to bed late last night and woke up far too early this morning. I couldn't get back to sleep because my husband had a serious case of gas. It's not really his fault (except that he eats complete crap) but it wasn't any...

What a Trip!

Ahhh... summer... time for the yearly road trip! Once again, Ross did most of the planning. He really enjoys the thrill of planning out these trips. He plots out maps and creates detailed itineraries... basically the polar opposite of my road trip personality. It's...

Catching Up on Life

It feels like it has been so long since I wrote a journal-ly post about my "real life." The last several months have been relatively drama-free. There was some ruckus around Christmastime, but that is pretty much a given these days. Every year is the same story... Mom...

31 Day Blog Challenge Day Thirty – Comfort Food

Only today and tomorrow left in the 31 Day Blog Challenge! Do you think I should do another challenge like this? The question for today asks about my favorite comfort food. That would definitely have to be Chicken and Dumplings. I created a recipe I published here...

31 Day Blog Challenge Day Twenty-Nine – Bucket List

We are almost to the end of the 31 Day Blog Challenge! I'll be talking about my bucket list today. I think that most of my bucket list has to do with travel. I have seen much of the United States, but I would really love to get overseas. The top destinations on my...

31 Day Blog Challenge Day Twenty-Eight – Last Cry

It's just a quick post for Day Twenty-Eight of the 31 Day Blog Challenge. The question for the day is asking when I last cried. I honestly can't remember the specific episode, but it was a particularly emotional bit of My 600 Pound Life. If you haven't seen this show,...

31 Day Blog Challenge Day Twenty-Three – Pet Peeves

On to Day Twenty-Three of the 31 Day Blog Challenge! We're in the homestretch now! We get to talk about my pet peeves. Much like the music discussion yesterday, my pet peeves sort of fluctuate with whatever is currently happening in my life and the surrounding world....
