I remember my first curse word. We were riding in the car with my parents when suddenly; my father called my brother a little bastard. It happened at a time that I was going through my repeat everything someone else says until they snap phase. "Yeah, ya little… Continue

So we're driving home the other day after picking up Isla's best friend at her grandmother's house. At some point, the girls start talking about their elves and some of the goofy things that they do at night while they're sleeping. After a few minutes, I interrupt to tell Ava about Jinxy and how she is able to give the other two TOY elves magical powers when she visits.… Continue

One time, I got so drunk waiting on a friend that I passed out, face down, on a table in a crowded restaurant. By the time she got there, the security guards were leaning over to help me out of my chair. "No... Please don't call the police," I heard my friend say as they mumbled something about public intoxication. I remember one of them reaching down to pick up my purse,… Continue

Okay, so maybe I'm not the best example of fine parenting that the world has to offer; but dammit... We sure do have a good time! Continue
My husband went camping with his family the day after Thanksgiving, leaving me and the pip in a clean house full of food for two whole days (don't judge, I don't camp; and in my defense, Isla has been having this weird thing at night…

Why can't women be more like men? I mean it; men are so much easier to manage (husbands excluded). If they don't like you, they just call you a dick and walk away. If you blurt out a naughty word or tell an off color joke, they don't care; they just hit the floor laughing, while… Continue

My mom makes the best pumpkin pie ever. It's so good, in fact, that one year I watched my brother eat one all by himself in just one sitting. He grabbed a fork, sat down on the couch and started to shovel, just like he had in his driveway that very same morning. Continue
I, on the other hand, am not such a lover of fine pies. My weapons of choice are the green frosted Christmas tree…

Santa and I have always had sort of a love-hate relationship. I love the fact that he brings me a delightful gift each year, I hate the fact that I'm the one doing all the work. Word to the wise; if you ever DO end up on his naughty list, that's when you need… Continue

Unless you're a food critic for the New York Times

Every year around this time, I get an email from my mother with a link to a video that she made forall to enjoy. It usually features her as the lead elf in a series of choreographed dance moves that joyfully bob and weave in perfect sync with the most obnoxious holiday music you've… Continue

When I was younger, I wanted to be a model. I even went so far as to attend one of those multi-tiered marketing programs that handed out hollow promises of fame and fortune for the low, low price of $500 a head shot. Like most women, I've had my share of ups and downs in the beauty… Continue

As I was pacing up and down the halls at work today, all of a sudden it hit me. I HAD to pee. Like now. And then once I made it to the bathroom, I thought, gosh, I can't wait until I can pee on my own schedule again. Which got me to thinking, what else will I be able to do again once the baby is born? Of course holding my baby and snuggling with my baby is on the list, but that's so cliche. Let's be serious now. So, in no particular order, I've come up with… Continue

Love my boys. Love em to death and I will gladly make mud pies and participate in worm eating contests but I'm just not the sporty type of mom.
I love sports don't get me wrong. I'm one of the biggest Texas Longhorns football fans you'll ever meet (Hook em horns!) but I'm more of a spectator than anything else.
So when my baby bear begged me to go out and play baseball with him this afternoon, I reluctantly dragged myself up off the couch and out to the front yard to throw the… Continue

Why is it that men are so stupid? Do they not understand that leaving incriminating text messages on their phones is not a good idea? Did they not see what happened to Tiger Woods? I’ve had a few tearful conversations recently with girls who’ve discovered more than they wanted to, all from a text check on the hubby’s phone.
So men, not that I’m on your side or anything, but DELETE THE DAMN EVIDENCE! Do not trust your wives to give you privacy. We will read your… Continue

When you have children the term “dinner party” usually means burgers and hot dogs on a grill served around 5:30pm. So when my husband informed me on Sunday that we would be attending a “dinner party” with two other couples and their children I just assumed this would be the scenario. Turns out I was quite wrong.
Our Chef for the evening was one of my husband’s close friends who is recently divorced. He has two children of his own but this was his ex-wife’s night with the kids… Continue
