Can we talk about how annoying the phrase, “When it rains it pours” is? Like seriously! Number one, why does it have to rain in the first place, let alone pour?

How many of you are entrenched in the middle of playoff season? Ok, if you cannot relate to the life of a baseball fanatic, how about football? College or NFL, take your pick. When their team is on, nothing else in the world exists. Andy and I have been banished to watch our shows from the tiny screen of the iPad mini. Woo hoo!!!

So, I am hijacking her blog with this recipe, my tips how to be more positive, and how to turn a funky mood around. [Read more…]
Confession: I just mistyped the word popper like three times. I think I have been seeing too many dirty diapers and poop is just on my brain. Sorry. Mom life!
Don’t worry; that is the last mention of poop in this post.
Let’s talk peppers. Mike and I handle heat differently. I can handle a habanero pepper but sometimes jalapenos with the seeds still in them kick my butt. Mike cannot at all tolerate a habanero pepper but loves jalapenos. The seedier the better. I do not get it. [Read more…]
