In case you’ve been following the saga of the social studies project, I have an update and it’s a doozie. If you want the back story, it’s here, here and here. In the end, we all pitched in and worked together, and as I hoped, we all learned a little something along the way. I […]
Being the favorite all the dang time!
I will eventually post my homemade Christmas gift round-up, but we still have family to see in the next couple of weeks, and I can’t spoil the surprises yet. In the meantime, I am engaged in a Mexican standoff with my husband and G-Man, and it will be interesting to see who prevails. To understand […]
My husband made me these today. He used this recipe. And yes, I married the perfect man. I ate one. Then I died. Then I ate another. Then I lapsed into a sugar-induced coma. Then I had a cocktail. The End.

Every year, I always want to jump the gun, and start decorating for Halloween in early September. I usually make myself wait until as close to October 1st as I can, because I don’t want to be the weird mom whose house appears to be calendar confused. I’ve appeased myself the past couple of weeks […]
This past week, my husband and I celebrated our anniversary. Nine years of marital bliss is certainly worth celebrating, and we always love a good excuse for a tasty meal and some cocktails.
