I Cracked Today

I Cracked Today

I cracked today. Like, cried “cracked” today. Like “I broke the fuck down ‘cracked’ today.” I normally do a pretty decent job at keeping it together. I am lighthearted, I laugh, I find the funny in most everything, but today I cracked. I cry for other people, I cry at commercials, but rarely do I […]

Kids Are Effin’ Messy

Kids Are Effin Messy

Children are great, Barb provides me with more laughs than any human on the planet, however, she’s also taught me quite a few things; one in particular: Kids Are Effin’ Messy (!!!!!!) Having children teaches you many things. Maybe your level of patience was re-defined when adding your mini-humans to your clan, maybe you learned […]

The Time I Broke An FAA Regulation

The Time I Broke An FAA Flight Regulation

I must say, being able to walk around an airplane while it is IN AIR, but not being afforded the same privilege while ON THE GROUND sort of, well, really fucking baffles me. However, apparently there are rules while on a plane, and it appears that I managed to break one, or a few… So, I present […]

Las Vegas, You Make Me Feel Old

Las Vegas, You Make Me Feel Old

My husband and I recently took a two day getaway to Vegas. I was so stoked, who doesn’t love Vegas? It has the label of “Sin City” for a reason—it’s a guaranteed GREAT TIME! After being married for 8 years and never taking a vacation together, I willingly snatched up an invite we received for […]

I’m a Drug Addict- Guest Post by Lara F.

I'm a Drug Addict

I was fortunate enough to have one of my dear friends share a very powerful story with me. Through a message, she delivered such a raw, and emotion packed account of her life; where she’d been since I’d last seen her in high school, how she was now and how she got there. I asked her […]

Not the Lemonade Stands!

Not the Lemonade Stands!

My little one, “Barb Marley”, is a huge fan of the whole “Lemonade Stand” gig. She loves to set up shop, well, allow me to rephrase that— she loves it when I help to set up lemonade-shop as she sits out front hollering down the streets “LEMONADEEEEE STANDDD!!!! ONEEEEEE DOLLLARRR!!!!! GET YOUR LEMONADE!!!” My husband came […]

Dear Steven Spielberg

Dear Steven Spielberg

Dear Steven Spielberg, OH THE HORROR! I have been a dinosaur enthusiast since… gestation. I’m not sure which of my parents gave me the “dinosaur-loving gene” but it has been programmed in my brain since as far back as I can remember. Yes, I remember the gestational period. However, not as well as I remember the […]

10 Ways To Recognize the Murder Inn

10 Ways To Recognize the Murder Inn

I went to an awesome blogging conference this weekend in Baltimore. I had booked the travel arrangements months in advance so I would get the best deal because, well, you know my love of a deal. And I am cheap. And broke. I chose my flight, rental car, and hotel through Priceline (BIG MISTAKE) and checked […]

I Am Grateful

When I first started this blogging gig a little over a year ago, I had absolutely NO idea what I was doing. I didn’t know how to “work” WordPress, I didn’t know how to insert pictures, I didn’t know how to get people to READ my site. I actually had to have someone set up […]
