12:12:12 – Once Century Symmetry

Posted on

Yesterday, I was typing the date and realized that today would be the once-in-a-lifetime kind of date:  12-12-12.  I think I like it better typed 12/12/12.  Anywhoo, I got to thinking…why wasn’t I as fascinated when we had 11/11/11 or 10/10/10?  My slight fascination started when I heard the story of Margie and Paul on […]

In Honor of National Cookie Day

Posted on

It’s no secret – if it’s in the Brown Food Group, I love it.  I believe my BFF made up that food classification in honor of yours truly.  And what is in said Brown Food Group you may ask?                       Yup – anything “bready” and baked and bad for you in excessive quantities.   […]

Welcome December

Posted on

This year has flown by.  It seems that just a year ago I was setting up the Christmas tree and beginning the flurry of activities that happen in December.  Christmas is my favorite holiday and I tend to go a little overboard.  (Probably because I had no Christmas when I was little, but that’s a […]

This was supposed to be about inspiration…

Posted on

So I like to take pictures. My family hates it. I’m the one at all events with a camera slung around her neck saying, “Hold it. Let me get a picture.” Followed by moans and groans and rumbling of discontent. My little guy has resorted to “ruining” every picture by making a funny face. Who […]

New to Me Music – Paper Route

Posted on

I’m not sure where I first heard Paper Route, but I love, love, love them!  This is an indie rock band that hails from Nashville, TN.  They have some pretty deep lyrics, a cool and an unpretentious vibe reminiscent of some 80’s bands like Tears for Fears and Mr. Mister.  They released their newest album, […]

Sometimes Having a Dog Really Bites

Posted on

Owning a dog is a learning experience and an exercise in extreme patience.  We have an eight-month-old Portuguese Water Dog.  Porties are hypo-allergenic, active, sweet natured and lovable dogs.  What you might not know is that they are a notoriously mouthy breed.  When our breeder repeatedly warned me about this trait, I thought, okay, the […]

Oh Happy Day…

Posted on

I just got back from walking Fergie, my six month old Portuguese Water Dog.  Isn’t she cute??  She’s a bundle of energy, so we try to walk her twice a day.   Between my runs and these Fergie power walks, I should stay in good shape.  Today, the sun is shining, birds are chirping.  There’s a […]

What not to do on a treadmill

Posted on

I tend to do a lot of runs on the treadmill since I have two kids who aren’t old enough to babysit themselves and I have to squeeze in workouts whenever I can.  I’m the kind of runner that doesn’t mind the treadmill.  I don’t get dizzy or disoriented.  Plus, I really love being able […]
