A Playmate for Tyson

  Andy had Woody, and Tyson will have James. Today, I observed my toddler cuddle with Elmo, pat Elmo on his back, and tell Elmo to lay down.  I witnessed him comfort, care for, and love Elmo in the same way that we comfort, care for, and love him.  It was the most adorable thing […]

Falling Forward with Nordstrom

How to purposely navigate the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: First thing’s first.  Don’t shop while you’re hungry applies here as well.  If you are anything like me then you like everything you see.   I tend to become just a  wee bit greedy when it comes to buying clothes especially when there are multiple colors of an […]

Smothered Sister Chops

When it comes to pork chops, there is nothing I love eating more than those that have been well seasoned and pan-fried to perfection. In fact, I’ve been known to fry up some chops just like the ones I’m talking about.  Back when my cooking experience was limited, frying pork chops used to be the […]

The official arrival of Summer has me thinking about what I am going to be wearing when the Barrett Babes and I are out and about enjoying our time together.  As usual, I am all about simple but stylish looks, and this will be my warm weather look for the season!  Talk about keeping it […]

Wide Leg Pants, Yes!

I absolutely love wide-leg pants, and I have always loved them.  I remember the very first pair of palazzo pants my aunt gave me.  I couldn’t wear them enough.  I wish I had a picture of me rocking them.  I am telling you, when I wore those pants I knew I was hot stuff.  That’s […]

A Slow-Cooker Summer

A Slow-Cooker Summer

  Like most mothers and wives, I spend most of my time in the kitchen preparing meals and cleaning up after those meals are done.  The insane amount of time these tasks takes is asinine, and to be honest with you, if there was an option that allowed us to subsist without food, I’d take […]
