Music Will Help You Forget That Your Life is Absolutely F*****G Miserable

I found a bunch of cool writing prompts on Pinterest to keep Ella engaged for homeschool but let's be honest, I also love the heck out these kinds of things too, and now more than ever we need fun little posts like these to keep our minds off of the usual nightmare. I found this… Continue reading Music Will Help You Forget That Your Life is Absolutely F*****G Miserable


BBQ, Big Brown and Burgoo

I found this gem and was smiling and laughing the entire time reading it. I felt I needed to share for many reasons. 1- MAMIE and PAPA 2- I miss traveling 3- Louisville

When you have a family you dearly love that lives far, far away, you will do anything, ANYTHING to see them.
You will brave busy, crowded airports.
You will drive hundreds of miles on lonesome stretches of road.
You will put up with rain, snow, sleet, locusts, and truck stop bathrooms to feel their hug or hear their voice.
This has been our life for the past eight years since my parents were transferred, first to Peoria, Illinois, (3 hours away), then to Chattanooga, Tnessesse (11 hours away).

Desperate to see each other, we all have done everything we can to make sure we get time together. It wasn’t until this past…

How Gilmore Girls Saved My Life

I can’t believe this show turned 20 on October 5th but I am celebrating because it feels like we need to.

I have so many things that I can thank my friend Rebecca for bringing into my life: CK One perfume, Tim Tam cookies, Filipino egg rolls, world peace.

In January of 2008, I was at home with my then-newborn Ella and I wanted a television show to watch during the endless days and nights of feedings.

Screw It, I’m Eating Tater Tots- Episode 19 (Welcome to the Menopausedome)

  When I was 14, this album was released:     Frankie Goes to Hollywood's Welcome to the Pleasuredome. It was groundbreaking considering that they were openly gay in 1984. I LOVE THE HELL OUT OF THAT. Very groundbreaking also considering that the word "period" wasn't even allowed on television until a solid year later… Continue reading Screw It, I’m Eating Tater Tots- Episode 19 (Welcome to the Menopausedome)


10 Reasons Why I Will Never Be Featured on Huffington Post

This was my first (and probably last) post to go viral. This post was originally written when I was on the Blogger platform and at the time, I had Disqus handling all of my comments. Then Disqus got all messed up at Blogger, so when they migrated over here, they ALL said Kari on them. So it looks like I commented on my blog 47 times. I thought about deleting those comments but then I decided to leave them because it just makes this post seem that much more random. 🙂

Side note-Huffington Post has a contributor section that is completely different than the “news” section that you are probably more familiar with. This is what this post is referring to.
