$1 Margaritas Starting July 2 in All Applebees in Texas

Apparently crazy from the heat, Apple Texas, a franchise partner of Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill & Bar with 67 restaurants in the state, is making a bold move in the casual dining segment: offering its best-selling 10 oz. Margarita for a buck for an entire month. The aptly-named DollaRita is…

What is your blog name?
Goodness and Grit
What is your blog URL?
Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
I was born outside of Seattle, WA, Raised in Chipley, FL, studied in Boston, MA, discovered what life is about in Franklin, TN, and found passion in Lillehammer, Norway. I am married to the man of my dreams and we have three children that never cease to entertain. Seven years ago we purchased a home, site unseen, and hopped the pond. Living in Europe is a fantasy come true, but has it´s challenges. New languages, the metric system, lack of convenience, different school philosophies, and no service, are just a few of my daily hurdles. This and more gives me plenty to blog about. After all, it´s cheaper than therapy! By trade I am an interior designer, I chair a book club and serve on various school committees. I am addicted to yoga, and I am a writer.
What is your blogging philosophy?
Real thoughts, from the heart, on life when it smacks you in the head with a snowball.
I have been blogging since...

Not only are the horrific events in every paper, on every news report, and in everyone´s conversations, I have even heard children talking. And the stories from the children are the most moving. This…

I have been without internet service the past couple of days. So, what does a blogger do when blogging is not possible? I suppose I can only speak for myself, but  neglected housework would not stop staring through me. Therefore, I began the ever dreaded spring cleaning. Wall washing, cabinet cleaning, going through the children´s clothes and toys they…

What blogging format are you on? Blogger, Wordpress, etc.?
The code has to be an HTML editor or a widget that reads HTML to work.

Hi Kimberly, 


In response to your comment on my profile, what do you mean by "getting buttons on your link." Can you be more specific? Do you mean on blog button on your MBC profile, or on your blog itself? 


Let me know so I can try to help you out :-)
