Category Archives: Friday Favorites

You guys will never believe this. I’m thinking of changing these posts. Yes, I know there’s only been four of them. Yes, I know I just changed the Friday Favorites over to them because I was sick of the Friday Favorites, but guess what? I kind of miss the Friday Favorites.   But then I remembered […]

Yesterday I upgraded my phone to iOS 10. I spent a full hour playing with the new features in iMessages alone. I sent gif images, stickers, bursts of confetti, and floaty balloons to the family text group for so long that two of them went dark on me. Apparently if you have a real job […]

One week in to the overhauled, new and yet-to-be-determined-if-improved Friday Favorites and I’m already living up to my prediction that they might not always make it up by Friday. Go easy on me, ya’ll. I’ve had a rough week. It was take-your-daughter-back-to-college week, or as I’ve come to know it as, three to seven days […]

“Pictures or it didn’t happen.” It’s not just how much of America’s youth — which is how I now describe the under-40 set — lives life these days, but also pretty much become our motto around here over the past few years. I’m not kidding, I take pictures of everything. My food, my cats, my […]

It’s Friday, Friday, gotta get down on Friday… Damn song. This morning Thing 2 gave me that fun little ear worm and for the past hour and a half it’s been EATING AWAY AT MY BRAIN. Partyin’, partyin’, yeah! Partyin’, partyin’, yeah! It’s okay. I’ll get her back later by singing “It’s a Small World” […]

May is my favorite month. Sure, I like to tell July that it’s the best and that I wish its days would last forever, but that’s usually just to butter it up so it gives me at least 25 perfect days of hot-but-not-too-hot weather, weekends at the lake with low humidity and no wind, mosquitoes […]

When people ask me what my favorite food is, my answer is easy. Not like sandwich bread—in fact, we never even have that in the house—but crusty, artisany breads. (I’m not entirely sure what that means—but whenever that word is used to describe a loaf of bread it’s a kind I need to GET IN MY BELLY.) […]
