“I think we all really want the one-on-one date.” – Demi.  THIS GIRL IS BRILLIANT, Y’ALL. Group Date: Katie, Heather, Hannah B, Courtney, Kirpa, Tracy, Demi, Caelynn. Here’s the drama we’re preparing for: beauty queen feud!  Yay.  Add in Demi and Tracy and their disagreements.  It’s gonna be good. It’s a pirate-themed date.  Cue the yo-hoe-hoe puns.  I noticed a surprising lack of rum, myself. The girls are dressed in traditional pirate garb, well- Halloween […]

Deep Thoughts About POTS / Hold My Gatorade and Watch This / Uncategorized

Hey.  Life gets hard even if health is perfect.  Things come up.  It can get overwhelming.  This past week I’ve been having more symptoms than normal and even being on bed rest have still had enough issues regulating my blood pressure that I’ve been to my primary doc and my electrophysiologist this week.  I’ve had more EKG’s this week than I’ve had in the last year.  But, I’m writing today about my tiny victories.  Not […]

Well, I’m back.  Another season, another reason to gather around and laugh at the TV.  It’s Colton.  You remember him.  He’s some age, looks ok showering, played football in the NFL for a bit, and hasn’t had sex.  That’s the storyline.  It’s incessant.  It has been brought up 2000 times.  DO NOT PLAY A DRINKING GAME WITH THE WORD VIRGIN.  You will die. The first hour is rough.  We have to have a recap about […]

Deep Thoughts About POTS / Hold My Gatorade and Watch This / Uncategorized

Apparently I’ve been missing writing.  As soon as the Christmas crowd and party was all over I was eager to get back into my book I’m writing, and while I procrastinate that I’ll just write little thoughts for y’all to read.  Ha! The New Year can mean so many things.  For some people, it’s a clean slate, a fresh start.  For others, it’s just another day to work on the same goals that have always […]

Holy moly, it’s been almost two months since my last post.  I apologize.  The end of the year always gets insanely busy.  Let me do a bit of a recap for y’all. During the second week of December Tom and I visited Leavenworth, WA for a lovely getaway.  If you aren’t familiar, Leavenworth is a charming little Bavarian-themed village known for their Christmas decorating, sausages, and Octoberfest.  We love a little getaway just the two […]

I’m just gonna tell you right now that I won’t show all the pictures here now because I’ll send some on Christmas cards this year and I don’t want to ruin the surprise. We had a perfect plan, but spoiler alert it didn’t go as planned. Photo Credit for all of these lovely photos, including some outtakes, is Empire Studios.  I highly recommend her because 1) She wasn’t scared of Tom’s cranky moments. 2) She wasn’t afraid to […]

Hold my Gatorade and watch this!  I made a little Etsy store with all of my handmade jewelry.  No, I’m never gonna make money or anything cool like that, but I really enjoy being creative with styles and ideas.  If you follow me on Facebook, you already know about this, but if not it still counts as news to you. Hey, maybe be a pal and jump onto Etsy and favorite my shop.  If you […]

My POTS has been rough lately.  I am sure the change of seasons is not helping a bunch, but isn’t fully to blame.  Probably me having POTS is mostly to blame. I was at Costco the other day.  I mostly had to get dog food and a few other little things.  If we’re being honest, I look forward to slipper season at Costco every year.  I love to splurge on new slippers each Fall. As […]

Hey all.  I’m still here and alive.  I’ve been busy/distracted lately so I haven’t blogged in a bit. So what’s new?  Here’s what kind of stuff is going on lately: As of yesterday, NHL is officially back and for that we are all thankful.  Love me some hockey. Tom and I watched Arsenic and Old Lace on October 1st to kick off the month.  It was my first time seeing it, but I certainly enjoyed […]
