In “celebration” of school starting back up for many of you, here’s a little throw back for ya. Not one of my best moments as a mom, but it sure makes for a great story. Just don’t make this mistake. (This post was originally published February 27, 2012 and updated In August 2022.) The school […]Read More Back to School Tip: Cookies and Razors Do Not Mix
YEP, I quit. What did I quit? A lot of things actually. First I quit eating gluten which was a much needed lifestyle change for health reasons. That was fun. I also sadly quit writing – which is obvious by the lag time on this blog (and which I discussed here.) I quit paying for […]Read More I QUIT.
Hey Y’all. It’s been awhile. I know. I know. That was rude and you thought I’d been carted off to a padded room. I’m sure you were all organizing a movement to free me. 💙 Alas, no glamorous story of freeing myself from the clutches of a mad man armed with only a bobby pin. […]Read More She’s Back!
It’s DAY 12! We hope you have enjoyed these past 12 days of crazy. We had a lot of fun and hope it was entertaining, enjoyable, and memorable. Guess what? It’s your turn! hahahahaha! I kid I kid…. I like to play games. Growing up, my sisters and I had the tradition of playing games […]Read More 12 Days of Christmas – Day 12
It’s DAY 11! It’s not the most important part of Christmas, but giving and receiving gifts is such a fun and special part of the holidays. I love presents, but my favorite kind of present is quality time with people I love. So Eric wrapped himself up in wrapping paper. He’s a hoot. 🙂 I swear […]Read More 12 Days of Christmas – Day 11
It’s DAY 10! Today we celebrate a Hunter’s Christmas! On the “2008 How to Have a Good Christmas” list I taped up in my parents kitchen, I did, in fact, list that the guys had to wear camo and do some sort of shooting activity. I guess I figured with all the girly stuff we […]Read More 12 Days of Christmas – Day 10
It’s DAY 9! While the guys don’t care too much about dishes, we gals love that part. There is something about fancy tables that just make us smile. As our family’s president of interior decor, I am in charge of holiday place settings. Eric is not allowed to help and this video shows why! That said, […]Read More 12 Days of Christmas – Day 9
It’s the little things that mean the most to us around the Christmas holidays. So much so that I actually broke down in tears thinking about these glass Christmas mugs mom and dad have that I use every year. It’s the fact that they get them down from the top cabinet and have them ready […]Read More 12 Days of Christmas – Day 8
It’s all about odd, unique, clever Christmas traditions here on DAY 7! First up? The gum drop tree! I have no idea how this tradition got started, but it’s something my parents have done for years. We have that little plastic tree with gum drops on it every year. When we were little we would […]Read More 12 Days of Christmas – Day 7
It’s the halfway mark! Wow! Welcome to DAY 6. Living in Florida, we don’t often get to say “Baby it’s cold outside.” So today, we can at least listen to the song and dream! Ha Ha! But today is not about music. It’s about Christmas baking! This may be Eric’s favorite. He loves desserts. He […]Read More 12 Days of Christmas – Day 6
