I Got Inside The Breakfast Club High School and Lived to Tell

  Last week I did something out of character for me all thanks to my husband, risk taker that he is. So on day one of my birthday week last Monday, Mike and I took the day off to have a date day as he was leaving on a business trip the following day for… Continue reading I Got Inside The Breakfast Club High School and Lived to Tell

Things That Make Me Feel Good

  It's my birthday week! You know what that means? You're late in sending me my gift. Just kidding! Unless you really feel the need to, then who am I to stop you? My birthday week means I spend each day doing something nice for me! Last year, I wrote about making birthday week a… Continue reading Things That Make Me Feel Good

Smothered, Covered, Chopped-Florida Spring Break Part Two

    I mentioned in part one the traffic hell we experienced on the road to Destin. Just after the Alabama rooster incident, Ella got car sick and had "sick" all over her clothes. Thank God she had layers on (us Midwesterners, always ready), so we literally stripped her down in an abandoned parking lot, … Continue reading Smothered, Covered, Chopped-Florida Spring Break Part Two

I Forgot When I Married My Husband- Modern Map Art Review

  I get companies that reach out to me from time to time, asking would I like something they offer in return for me writing about it on my blog. Eighty-five percent of the time, it's companies that have nothing to do with what I write about, or offering products I would never use.

Thank You Alabama Rooster-Florida Spring Break Part One

  Before I start our story, we need to address the traffic on the way to Florida by me telling you this: don't drive to Florida. Seriously. If you are even thinking about it, stop. Stop now. Because this is what awaits you: Lots and lots of that. To be clear, I live in the… Continue reading Thank You Alabama Rooster-Florida Spring Break Part One

Don’t You Forget About Me-Scene Seventeen “Chicago is SO Good For My Ego”

  I think it's normal to "see" certain actors in roles when you've written something like this. Right? TELL ME IT'S NORMAL. I see Nicole Sullivan as Kate. You've seen her in shows like MadTV and King of Queens and as of late, Disjointed on Netflix. She is FUN-NY and I would love her in… Continue reading Don’t You Forget About Me-Scene Seventeen “Chicago is SO Good For My Ego”
