The good old Friday Favorites are back, ya’ll, and I have two words for you. Shut. Up. Without going into a long explanation of the mental state I’m clearly in to be as hypocritical indecisive and flustered about something so trivial, let me just say that as much as I thought I liked the idea […]

It’s not surprising that I’m proud of my 15-year-old daughter for loads of things. She’s smart, talented, funny, empathetic, kind, driven, and possesses a wicked, sarcastic sense of humor. But what I might actually be most proud of her for—and what won’t be surprising to those who know me—is this: she’s a superfan.

ARE YA’LL READY FOR THIS?? It’s game time, fellow superfans. The long off-season is over and it’s time for kickoff!

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” […]

Welcome back, friends! I’ve been off the grid for the past few weeks living the life of a jet-setting celebrity…the kind that flies coach on lesser known airlines and brings her own wine to hotels to save money, but still.
