What’s Happenin’.

It’s spring break here, on this first day of spring, and the weather is gorgeous. For most of the last several spring breaks, I’ve been traveling to conferences or trips, so the kids and I haven’t had a good ol’ fashioned, lazy, sunny, relaxed spring break in a while. I’m digging it.

Ivy’s playing rec league volleyball and loves it. T and I love practicing with her, too. She’s our little #1….she’s a great server and she can run lines like nobody else. Get em, girl.

This is me trying to get a picture of her running lines:


Henry got rid of his retainer, so now he’s got naked teeth until he loses all of his baby teeth and gets “phase 2.” Can’t wait for that. Ahem.

EB is not interested in teams of any sort (yet or ever, who knows), but she’s been writing and drawing up a storm.

And Erv….Erv will be six in a few days. That’s all I have to say about that right now. He’ll be doing his Kindergarten Promotion in a couple of months.

I’ve been doing a workout program (TurboFire, I’ve done it before) for close to five weeks now. I’m feeling sore and a little stronger, but I can’t really see any difference yet. Hopefully I will soon, or my motivation my dwindle pretty quickly.

Kathy and I are deep into producing our final Listen To Your Mother show. We’ve selected the cast and we’re thisclose to making our charity official. The first rehearsal is in a couple of weeks, and tickets are going on sale soon. Things are getting real.

I’ve also been doing an online Adore Your Wardrobe course, learning how to best clothe my particular body and style. It’s pretty life-changing, actually.


Anyway, that’s what’s up. How are you??

My Story (Right Now)

The following is what I read in the Listen To Your Mother: KC show last weekend. It’s become an out of body experience, like my brain and body are at odds with each other….my brain is telling me it’s no big deal, I can pick up the toy, while my body is throwing it acrossContinue Reading

Here We Go, 2016.

I have some goals for 2016, and while some of them aren’t earth-shattering, work every day towards them or it won’t happen goals, I always think it helps me to write them down. One, for accountability…I don’t like letting people down (though obviously I do, sometimes), and two, so I can look back on themContinue Reading


It’s November 23. I’ve published 22 blog posts this month and I didn’t so much feel like doing one today. So here’s a (very short) video! Mwah. Happy Monday, y’all.

After Salon Shameless Selfies

After Salon Shameless Selfies

I got my haircut yesterday and got a lot cut off. But I love it! I don’t love that my stylist for at least three years is leaving the salon to go to school. A good stylist is hard to find! I know you get me. (I’m happy for her but sad for my hair)Continue Reading

Evolving comfort zones

I’m as comfortable saying I read 13 books in January as I am saying I read 3 books in 2011 (that’s just an estimate of 2011). I’m comfortable with my evolving style and getting in front of the camera. As long as my pants fit, I’m comfortable now as I was 15 pounds and aContinue Reading

What’s Up, Yo.

I’m eating my breakfast now, the breakfast that I forced myself to finish cooking before I sat down to write this. I’ve had a super annoying habit lately of burning my food when I get even the slightest bit distracted, so while I cooked it, I thought of all of the things I wanted toContinue Reading

A Look Back Over My Shoulder at 2014

Ah, 2014. I think it was a good year. It was often uneventful, but challenging. I had some failures, and some accomplishments, and hopefully, they balanced each other out. 2014 was the year I sent another kid off to school all day, every day, when Essie went to kindergarten, and ended up with one atContinue Reading

What NaBloPoMo Has Taught Me

Y’all. This was a long month. But. BUT! I will have finished NaBloPoMo tomorrow when I do my Project 365 post, and even managed to write all of the posts the night before (or sooner). I feel accomplished, and totally exhausted. I did learn a few things along the way, in this posting-every-day-in-November journey, andContinue Reading
