A couple of weeks ago I went off the grid. Like, really off the grid. To celebrate our 22nd wedding anniversary, my husband and I escaped to Big Sur, California—one of our very favorite places. Big Sur is a place we’ve loved since even before we were married, but for some reason, haven’t visited since. […]

One week, you guys. It’s one week until summer officially starts in my house. Sure, Thing 1 has been home for a couple of weeks already, so her summer is well underway, but Thing 2 still has a week to go, and I don’t count summer as starting until I can sleep in until 9:00 […]

Dear faithful YMFT Bachelor recap fans, I have good news for you. Sort of. (Here’s the part where I get you excited for a second and then [possibly] let you down gently.) You might remember how I’ve repeatedly said I won’t recap The Bachelorette anymore since I recapped Des’ season two years ago and lost half my […]

So it seems the Friday Favorites are becoming more of a bi-monthly thing, doesn’t it? Damn blogger who’s over scheduled herself the past couple of months. (And by “over scheduled” I mean take naps when she has a free hour instead of writing something for the blog, of course.) And after you discover what today’s Favorites […]

I have a problem: an addiction, if you will. It’s not new. This has been something that I’ve been struggling with for the past 10 or 15 years, and it’s an issue that I’ve tried many times to overcome, unsuccessfully. The interesting thing is, this problem doesn’t bother me. If I’m being honest, the [failed] attempts at […]

You guys, I have alarming news. My face is sagging. And listen, I’m not just saying that because I’m getting older and it’s what you’re supposed to say when you are a female and you are getting older. My face is really sagging. I just had a medical doctor tell me so. (In other news, […]

You guys, I’m writing this post from bed. And it’s well after noon. That’ll do it for this week’s Friday Favorites! Thanks for reading and goodnight! Nah, I’m kidding, but not about the being in bed after noon part. Am I sick? I think you know me well enough by now to know the answer […]

I love to sleep. Actually, that’s an understatement, but I can’t think of another word besides “love” that conveys the message more. I cherish sleep? Worship sleep? Yeah, those too. It’s true. My mother tells me that when I was a little girl, a bedtime wasn’t necessary. In fact, I’d often ask her how much longer […]

  For the past year or two I’ve had a stalker. Someone who knows things about me I don’t always tell my closest friends. Things about me I might not even share with my husband. Someone who gets me, without even having to talk to me. I’ve been aware of this creeper for awhile, and for some […]

46. Forty-six. XLVI. Quarante-six. (Damn, even in French it sounds old.) Tomorrow I will be 46. What. The. Hell. Like I always say about my children, I blinked and it happened. Actually, that’s not entirely true. Those years from birth to about age 15 seemed to totally drag. If you’ve been following along here the […]
