#Thunderup like never before

Russell is in the zone – while you might be literally 6 inches from him, he has no idea you are there, because he is IN. THE. ZONE.  Which helps when you are a shameless fan with your phone taking videos of him.

Chocolate Pie

Chocolate needs no introduction.  And pie.  I could say so much about pie.  It’s by far my favorite dessert.  I like all kinds of pie too.  But today I need to share with you this Chocolate pie recipe.  I made it for a pie auction.  And when a man came back into the kitchen and…

The Great Tech Detox of 2017: The results are in!

I’ve been asked quite a bit by my fellow moms in the trenches how the “no technology” thing was going.  And I’m here to tell you, I’ve done the research for you guys.  They survive.  And they get over it.   And they find other things to do.  Don’t be afraid my mom friends.  Dig…

This is how we Spring Break

Our vacation of choice is to head to Colorado.  And it’s not to ski, however we like to do that too.  Andy calls it the “motherland” because that’s where he was born and raised.  I’m that evil person who somehow lured him to the desolate state of Oklahoma.  But we won’t go there today.  I’ll…

A little bit of normal…

I have to first off say, we are overwhelmed with the support our family feels for my mom.  I can’t thank you all enough for  your kind words, texts, and prayers. Sometimes things get so crazy you find yourself craving normal.  This happens to me after holidays, or company, or looming brain surgeries.  Last night…

Taylor Swift

Now I realize you might find that title on some tween or teen blog.  Even maybe a 20 something blog.  But since I’m dedicated to keeping all things real, I’m going to say it. I’m 39 years old and I heart Taylor Swift and her music.  If you know me at all, your not surprised….
