Me Weekend ~ Me Time

I have spent this entire weekend alone doing whatever I wanted to do whenever I wanted to do it. I even took an evening to do nothing at all but veg out, watch every episode of Season 5 of Grace & Frankie on Netflix and drink Dark Horse Rosé wine. I have been afforded all... Continue Reading →

Pitching Mood

As much as I hate to admit it - I am a hoarder of things like all of M's papers. I have totes labeled Preschool, Kindergarten, 1st Grade, 2nd Grade, 3rd Grade.... you get the picture. Middle school took a hit in the paper department since very little - if any - papers were brought... Continue Reading →

Lessons of 2018

Lessons of 2018 ~ As I reflect on 2018, I must admit it has been a blur. So many people I have spoken with have the same sentiment. Where has the year gone..... I can tell you - it has gone F A S T. Last year, I made a post called Lessons of 2017.... Continue Reading →

Blessed in the Chaos

Well, hello!It's been a hot minute since we've talked! What have I been doing you ask? It's almost easier to tell you what I HAVEN'T been doing. Blessed In The Chaos for sure! Since our last chat, we've had a 16 year old birthday party for my niece. She then hit a deer the next day... Continue Reading →

Green-Eyed Monster

Jealousy is a very ugly word. For fifteen years, I've put up with someone in a constant state of jealousy. I honestly wonder just how a person can remain in that state day in and day out 24/7. It would have to be absolutely exhausting.  Not only that, but to steal the joy out of special,... Continue Reading →

Uncomfortable Conversation

Last week, I took Miss M to the DMV to update her State ID as she changed her last name a year ago this month (July) to incorporate my maiden name, and to have the same name as me and to have her Pappy's last name as well. Yes, we are those ladies who hyphenate.... Continue Reading →

Cheers to Summer & Hydrangeas

Cheers to Summer and Hydrangeas! These are my absolute favorite flowers. I pray that these take and grow. Unfortunately, the last bunch we planted didn't make it.  (my hand looks chubby, my nail polish is chipped and I have a bug bite on my hand from last night's porch party celebrating a friend's birthday but...

Father’s Day 2.0

I sat down to write about my second Father's Day "without" my Dad when it began to thunder. I am still smiling. Why, you ask? Because if you read my tribute words that I spoke at his service, you know that every time it thunders we say it is THE Paul Williams building mansion sites... Continue Reading →

Wisdom Teeth

Today, Miss M had her wisdom teeth extracted. Every night since booking the appointment, I have awoke in the middle of the night thinking about it. By the Grace of God, she is a healthy child. She's only had to have blood drawn once. So today, I worried how she would handle the IV, the... Continue Reading →

Ohio Chautauqua ~ Erma Bombeck

Last night, my family and I attended Ohio Chautauqua to watch the live performance of Susan Marie Frontczak as she portrayed Erma Bombeck. Before I go any further, let me explain what Ohio Chautauqua does. It is a community event that comes to town under a big red and white tent offering living history performances...

Grilled Romaine Chicken Salad

Remember my statement under My Love of Cooking & Entertaining ~ When I was younger, I wasn’t the best at it but who is right? I mean, I wouldn’t have made the show Worst Cooks In America or anything like that but I did fix a lot of hamburger and chicken. I thought that grilled marinated chicken... Continue Reading →

Banana Split Cake

As soon as warmer weather arrives, I switch modes of cooking. I grill out all year long but I do change what I cook. Anyone else like that? I don't cook chili in the Summer nor do I fix soups.. Just Fall and Winter. Same with my desserts. This Banana Split Cake I am about... Continue Reading →
