Crowd-Sourcing Tattoos

Recently I overheard my husband talking about tattoos to someone and they mentioned how they would worry how they would look once they got old and wrinkly. To which he said, “I’m really hoping I don’t care about things like that when I’m old and wrinkly.” I love tattoos. I’d have more if I were A) Rich or B) An artist. A lot of my problem is having ideas in my head and having no idea how to get them on paper. BUT! I still get the periodic small one that requires minimal artistic skill. My most recent was the...

Golden To Death Half Marathon Race Report

What? You’ve never heard of the Golden To Death Half Marathon? Well…WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN? Remember back when I said we had a chance to move to New Hampshire with Donnie’s company but we decided to turn it down and hope he found a job here? One of the many reasons we didn’t want to move is things like the Golden to Death Half Marathon. Basically, a local running friend (I’ll withhold names because nobody wants their name associated on a blog where I spent years talking about my reproductive nightmares) decided it would be fun to try to run...

Would You Like Some Whine With That?

SPOILER ALERT: If you can get past the whining in this post – there’s some good bits at the end. BUT YOU MUST SUFFER THROUGH THE WHINING FIRST. I am a pretty consistent blogger writing AT LEAST every weekday morning, often more than that. So, I guess when I miss two weekdays of writing, it’s probably goes without saying that I’m having ONE OF THOSE WEEKS, right? You know the ones. You bash your head closing the cabinet door because…um…you forgot how tall you were? Or you trip over your kids shoe spilling your FIRST cup of coffee all over...

A 3-Blessing Family.

If you are local or if you follow me on instagram or Twitter, places I tend to document the mundane in my life more than I do on here, then you know what Sunday Dinners are in my life. But, for those of you unaware – Donnie’s parents and brother and sister all live here in Huntsville, and every Sunday we eat dinner together. We rotate houses every week, and every Sunday we gather together as a family and share a meal. This started after Nikki was born, more as an excuse to gather and hang with the new member...

2:30am is a good time to wake up, right?

I got up around 2:30am to fine-tune these some more and to provide other options based on other suggestions from you guys. (Heather – is “one breath at a time” good for the “om” one? You’re the yogi!) I woke up excited which means I’m on the right track. I never got the original tattoo because something seemed off to me about it. Now that I’ve fine-tuned this one I think my problems with the original were: 1) the font. The “r” was too “2nd grade handwriting textbook” to me and 2) the balance. I felt like the words on...
