The Greatest Gift

Having children makes my life much more interesting. Back at the beginning of the year, Joey emailed me a list of seventy-eight questions. Yeah, I actually counted. Questions like what’s the best advice you’ve ever received, what is something that most people don’t know about you, what’s your favorite quote, what’s the purpose of life,…

Guilt Trip

I was sitting in my bathroom, getting ready to go work at a wedding. You know, the usual getting ready stuff, fixing my hair and putting on some makeup. Mason came to the bathroom door and told me that Grandma and Grandpa were here. I was kinda surprised. Mama doesn’t come by to visit very…

Awesome Combination

They couldn’t have been more than six or seven years old. They looked like they were probably best friends, and they were really cute little boys. I was one of many people behind them in the concession line at the movie theatre. They had ordered two large popcorns, two drinks and a couple of candies….

Slumber Party

Taylor Belle has a few of her girlfriends over to spend the night as part of what has turned out to be her week-long birthday celebration. She is really excited. In fact, they are all excited and acting like little girls rather than the sixteen year olds that they are. I understand though. Even at…

Being A Goober

Taylor Belle came down the stairs, ready to go, and asked if she looked ok. I glanced over at her and said yes. She looked nice. And then, I looked again. She was dressed like me. Almost exactly like me. In fact, I went on to notice that not only was she dressed like me,…

Good Thing They Love Me

Some of my friends at work say that I argue with everything they say. Well, actually, I guess they all say that. And I would disagree, but then they would say that I’m arguing with them. But I disagree anyway. Heh. I tried to explain to my friends that I am not arguing. That I…

Don’t Judge Me On This One

I had a little Jeep Wrangler when I owned Mama’s Dessert Kitchen. It was painted with zebra stripes, and had pink and lime green Mama’s Dessert Kitchen signs on the doors. It was really cute. My girls and I made all our deliveries and ran our errands in it, and it was great for advertising…

Ping Me

Ping me tomorrow and we can talk about it. The first time Joey texted that to me, I thought he had just made a typo or his phone was autocorrecting. That was a couple of months ago. And he keeps texting me to ping him. The other day, I finally asked him what “ping” him…

Summer Fever

I thought it was Friday all day. It’s not. It’s Thursday. And I don’t mean I found myself thinking it was Friday once or twice. It happened all through the day. I would remind myself that it is only Thursday, but then would turn right around and have it happen again. By the end of…

My Super Power Would Not Be Invisible!

So I’ve noticed that I write a lot about my kids. And my parents. And a few other random things. Mainly about my kids though. And I appreciate you indulging me and cheering me on. Really appreciate it. But if I were you, I would probably be wondering why I never write about a man…
