Kendall’s entered a new, magical phase. One where he chatters and talks in a language I can, most of the time, understand. It’s remarkable. “Momma, read sounds,” means he wants me to read his book where I ask him what sound each picture makes. “Momma, nigh night cookie,” means he wants me to lay my […]

WOW. WOW. WOW. I really don’t know what else to say. You know that $1,000 goal? Hah! Smashed that in HOURS. In fact, after I posted about the fundraiser I took Kendall out to enjoy some Chick Fil A, and by the time we got home a couple hours later there was already $600+ in […]

It’s been a long day, at the end of a long week. Frankly, it’s been a long few weeks. The heat is here, summer is upon us, and this girl wants a margarita. This girl NEEDS a margarita. Just something citrusy and tangy, tart and sweet, on the rocks with salt. Something that says relax, […]

Just a couple hours out from our first sonogram. I can’t tell if this topsy turvy stomach is morning sickness or nerves, but it’s worse than most mornings, and I’m going to guess that it’s partly due to nerves. I find that odd. I haven’t really been nervous about things going wrong this pregnancy, not […]

Dear Husband, I get the feeling you’re taking this whole food aversion phase a little too personally. Here’s the thing, it’s not about you. It’s not about your food, your cooking. It makes NO SENSE that I don’t even want to see the raw hamburger meat (gag, typing that made me gag) let alone smell […]

OMG Y’all! This child is sucking the life out of me.  I will be really super duper impressed if I manage to get dressed and go to Target today. I’ve been trying to go to Target all week, a mere 3 miles away. You’d think I’ve been putting off a trip to the Himalayas. Why […]
