I just got back from a fabulous Girls’ Trip to Mexico. If you follow me on Instagram, you have already seen this, but if you don’t, I just had to share a little Travel Advice with you today: Please be mindful of the color neck pillow you choose, as well as where it winds up […]
Are you a good guest? An easy quiz to see if you’re an over-entitled, self-absorbed, jerk.
We just got back from our fabulous annual camping trip up near Lake Tahoe. I am in love with this trip and my family has enjoyed this tradition for more than 45 years. While it is a family tradition, new friends are always welcome to join us. This year, we had a new person join […]
A county fair… bad food, bad prizes and good fun.
Did you go to a county fair this summer? My neighbor Melissa said in an Instagram upload, that a county fair is the Olympics of People Watching. Oh, amen to that. It’s also the Olympics of Fried Food. It’s also the home of giant food… All. Kinds. Of. Wrong. And if you’re going to eat […]
The Atlanta TSA stole my son’s yo-yo.
So I just got back from The Haven Conference, which was fabulous and I’ll tell you all about it in the the next few days. There were lots of great sponsors there and one of them, Fish Foam, was giving out toy yo-yo’s along with samples of their product. Most women aren’t that into yo-yo’s, […]

I had to run into Target over the weekend to pick up a birthday gift for one of Grant’s little buddies. I figured since I was there, I should grab a few gallons of milk too. And a frozen pizza. Oooh, and paper towels. And some juice boxes… As I cruised down one of the […]
I am SO glad I didn’t run over that old man in the parking lot. He had much wisdom to share.
I ran into the grocery store to pick up a few things. Specifically, wine. I’m on a Petite Syrah kick right now and I bought a case that was on sale. (Oh, but what I would give to afford a daily Rombauer habit… but I digress.) A clerk helped me out to the parking lot […]
I never did get my funnel cakes.
Rich and I had a date last night. We went to see Chris Isaak at the Orange County Fair. (He was awesome!) Vanessa Carlton opened for him. (She? Not so awesome.) We saw lots of the people and things you’d expect at a Fair… crying kids in strollers, large women in clothing that is waaaay […]
