My Top 8 Albums of 2014

December 29, 2014

This year I felt like I’ve gotten some groove back. I am finding myself experimenting with new stations on my streaming services and finding great new sounds and groups. There are a ton of tracks I have liked (you can see those here) but I thought I would narrow down my top 58 albums of 2014. […]

That Time I Scared the Hell Out of My Kid

December 18, 2014

I’m going to tell you a story. This story may be very polarizing in response. You may think I am the meanest/worst mom ever OR you may high five your computer screen and send me a Starbucks twitter coffee (a girl can dream).  So here goes. December is becoming a double edged sword. Landon, in […]

5 Things You Didn’t Know You Wanted

November 25, 2014

Until Now! I don’t do gift guides (well I did one for 2 year olds years ago but I digress) but I have found some things lately from OTHER gift guides that I went “well damn, that’s awesome”. I’m not going to moan on and on in an intro paragraph…let’s just get to it: A […]

Why Girls Can Code Even If Mattel Doesn’t Think So

November 20, 2014

Earlier this week, the link started pouring in to me. Emails, Twitter, Facebook. “HAVE YOU SEEN THIS?!” Mattel came out with a book “I can be a computer engineer”*. If I saw this in a store before any of this, I would have snatched that bad boy up immediately. You CAN program and still have […]

Things I Love – La Shish

November 3, 2014

About 7 years ago the boys at work let me tag along to their lunch. It was to a Lebanese and Greek place called La Shish. Problem was, I has never tried such food (oh, youth). Well I jumped in with both feet and figured they loved it, so I would. We arrived and I was […]

In Defense of Butts

October 15, 2014

This week we were playing around giggling with Landon where we often fall down the toilet humor bandwagon. He is a 5 yr old boy. Boogers, farts, poop…it’s all comedy gold. He calls arm pit farts “chicken farts” and it’s pretty much the funniest thing ever when he tries. Smelling his own stinky feet is […]

Hola, Kindergarten

September 30, 2014

We are now a few weeks into Kindergarten and getting our feet under us. It hasn’t been all rainbows and unicorns but I think we have weathered the transition pretty well. I worried about him going to a whole new environment…like more than I usually worry. I am a pretty confident person and even I […]

The Power of Thank You

September 29, 2014

When you get married you have to do a good bit of blending. Styles, feelings, furniture, and so on but the biggest I think is habits. Some good, some bad. Like how I am notorious for not cleaning the lint trap or how Kevin will pace like a caged animal on the phone…for an hour. Those […]

How To Start Twitter

September 19, 2014

Follow Fridays are kind of a thing of the past but I thought I would bring it back today to help convert some folks. Twitter can be an amazing place. I’ve met my best friends there. I’ve helped people. I’ve laughed. I’ve cried. I’ve talked so much shit it’s ridiculous. But I digress. In the […]
