Fake Plants and Boxes, Wasps and Raccoons

If you follow me on social media you may have seen that it has been a very interesting week for me this week in Texas. Chris has an apartment here while we are living our lives apart---trying to sell the house in Mason City---balancing a marriage and life and new job and all that that entails.  It isn't easy but we have been in this place before and we can do it.  We both really miss each other but try to make the best of the situation. His 1 bedroom apartment is nice and quite … [Read more...]

I’ll Do it Frank Sinatra Style

The viral ALS Ice Bucket Challenge came my way. Miranda from Plus Sized Mama and author of Lemonade and Holy Stuff challenged me.  I get what the intention was in the beginning. Well, kind of.  Bring awareness to the horrid disease that takes the joy of living from so many people. I did a bit of research online so that I could be more educated on the disease.

Come on –Get Happy

I have been obsessed with this song lately but then yesterday I stumbled across this video and I became even more obsessed!  It was made in honor of World Down Syndrome Day (March 21) and is so fun I had to share it.  I was a bit disturbed that the spelling of syndrome was incorrect until my friend, Susi, told me it was the German spelling and that it was obviously filmed in Germany.  I was clueless and thanks to Susi now I know!!!  By the way, today is Susi's birthday so show her some love by … [Read more...]

The Game Ball

Today is The Big Game.  I don't want any problems with using the actual words but you know what I mean.  It is the day of the Superb Owl Game as Stephen Colbert has dubbed it.   While I do not have anything really invested in the game being played today I will watch and eat my obligatory Big Game Day food .   I will ooh and ahh over the commercials--many of which I have already viewed as the trend is to release the commercials early this year.   But in the back of my mind I will be thinking … [Read more...]

I’ve Been Dreaming of the Perfect Car—-I May Have Found It!

Finally.  The perfect car.  Oh yes---I know what you are thinking.  We all have specific ideas of what comprises the perfect vehicle but I think I may have found it and it could be mine for just one short day.  The Weinermobile---yes---you read correctly.  The Weinermobile. For a very short time anyone can join in on the chance to "lease" the car for the day by simply tweeting about their love of  all things Weinermobile.  The contest is the brain child of the  Oscar Mayer folks and for a … [Read more...]
