Torn Meniscus and KFC

What is Mother’s Day without a bucket of KFC? Every childhood memory of my family gathering at my grandparent’s house has a bucket of chicken in it. I honestly teetered between KFC and Popeyes. Popeyes has better chicken but KFC coleslaw is iconic. I got about 50 photos of kids and me. Not one passed... Continue Reading →

Me Time

Plot twist What is it about making time for ourselves that makes us feel guilty? At this stage in my life, I am running from baseball games to basketball games. Throwing blankets and chairs in the car and trying to ignore the fact that my yard looks abandoned. The laundry spills out of the laundry... Continue Reading →

Rolls and Rugs

Today was a big day for my Mom. She has been taking classes through her church to become a Stevens Minister. She invited us to celebrate with her, as she and the other members were recognized at today’s service. Now I knew of this plan for awhile but a calendar isn’t something that’s ever caught...

Weekend Recap

Friday night I went on a date with my husband. We aren’t fancy like Applebees but we we’re definitely crushing it at Costco kind of people. We loaded up chicken, butter, cauliflower, broccoli, heavy cream and $100 worth of impulse buys. It was very romantic. Although I kid about these little dates they are honestly... Continue Reading →

There’s Something About A Truck

For some reason, I thought it would be a good idea to buy my husband a truck. Yes, you read that right. I bought him a truck without his knowledge. This... Continue Reading →

This man literally inserted a catheter into my bladder, a number on a scale wouldn’t phase him. Last weeks winner... Continue Reading →

Are You A Hype Wife?

You know that saying, the one about being a bucket filler, instead of a bucket dumper? I don’t remember the exact wording but the basic gist of it is be a good person, not an asshole. When you are kind and nice to people, it fills their imaginary bucket. When you are mean or disrespectful... Continue Reading →

Keto Day One

This weekend we were kid less. Of course we kept ourselves very busy with the bathroom. I’m amazed at how far we have come. I don’t think we’ve even fought. Except that one time I used a tool to open my paint can. I just flashed him my boobs real quick and suddenly he wasn’t... Continue Reading →

Slowly But Surely

2 weekends left, max. We will be done with this bathroom remodel. I’m in love with every part of it. I bought the floor sight unseen and I was a bit nervous when I opened it. Thank goodness it looks great. I have to admit, as much as I wanted a bright color, I’m loving... Continue Reading →
