Week Recap! Convention Bound

Welcome to my week’s recap and coffee share hosted by Natalie the Explorer This was actually a pretty lousy week. I don’t know, maybe mercury was in retrograde or something.

#momguilt I knew since I was a kid that I wanted to be a mom.  By young adulthood, I had gathered that it wasn't going to be easy.  But, like most people who aren't actually parents yet, I had all the answers.  I could see the mistakes that the moms around me made and I … Continue reading #MomGuilt

Teenagers And Moms And Their Drama

Me and Kaleb. Kaleb and Me.  We're like two peas in a dysfunctional, moody pod. For the most part, I realize that is actually totally normal.

It's not all cranky teenager drama, of course.  Sometimes, it's moody mommy drama.  And, I'm sure … Continue reading Teenagers And Moms And Their Drama

Thanks to facebook, I learned that they would give a free doughnut to anyone who came in and talked like a pirate.  Pretty cool!  Or, they would … Continue reading Pirates Get The Best Doughnuts

Clucking for Free Chicken

This is what I love about my family.  Brian came home from work and I was expecting a mostly boring night since he was planning to watch a football game.  I was fine with the football, but didn't expect much excitement in my evening.  So, he comes home and says that someone from work said that Pollo … Continue reading Clucking for Free Chicken
