Eat It Or Wear It

What’s fun on a Tuesday night?  Going to Sonic for a hot fudge sundae.  Even better?  When your kid accidently dumps said hot fudge sundae in his lap, freaks out, and somehow gets it all over the backseat. Lucky for this kid, his daddy has a heart of gold and went back to Sonic and […]

Polar Vortex of Funk- Winter Marches On

Hopefully by now everyone is thawed out from last week’s Polar Vortex.  You would think living in the South, the cold air that we got wouldn’t be all that bad, but even though we didn’t see any snow, the temperatures were pretty brutal.   We had some trouble with our water pipes for two days, and […]

  Happy New Year!   I wish I could tell you I rang in the new year with some exciting, amazing party, but this is how it went down at our house: Subway sandwiches and watching cheesy New Years Eve countdowns on TV.  Speaking of which, I don’t know if I’m just showing my age or […]

Today I am tackling a mountain […]

A couple of weekends ago, E.B. surprised us by suddenly wanting to enter the Kids Fun Run at our local OctoberFest.  He’s always been a pretty good runner, and I have begged him in the past to enter these fun runs, but he always turned me down.  All it took was seeing the other children […]
