The girls of the Curvy Girl Guide Community are gearing up for another month of showing off their powerful voices and ideas. To help that process along, I've developed another month's worth of writing prompts to embolden them (and you!) to explore and magnify across their blogs and social platforms. … [Read More...]

Two unrelated topics that bug me in equally irrelevant ways

First off, I actually opted out of watching Big Love live tonight so that I could watch the circus that is the Josh Duggar wedding.I am most amazed, not by the walking, long haired uterus of steel, but by the bride to be.There are two types of people in this world. People who look like sluts on … [Read More...]

Me, raw.

Rough, I know. But honest. These days, this is me. Ok, kinda a blurry dirty mirror kind of me, but me none the less. Snarly hair. Black yoga pants. Tank Tops. This is as good as it gets, folks. Poor husband. I have already given him my complete permission to call Stacy and Clinton of What … [Read More...]

How I earned 4 more weeks of bed rest, aka, why your kids should never be in a position to look inside your vagina.

First off, thanks to all of you who said such nice things (and even sent wonderful emails, CaJoh!)in regards to my husband being laid off. Unfortunately, it's not an uncommon occurrence these days, especially in my area. We are lucky, in that he hasn't lost his job, but is off work for a few … [Read More...]

Buffalo Chicken Soup

I have been tossing around the idea of a buffalo chicken soup for a while now. Lord knows, I love my buffalo wings, but they are super greasy and the little bones make for a big choking hazard for little hands, so I needed to get my fix, and also pretend I was eating something healthier than wings. … [Read More...]

I obviously need some sort of hobby.

It's that time of my pregnancy folks!  Time for the crazies to take over, for my friends to stop taking my calls, for you all to wonder why the fuck you keep coming back here to read anything I write because I am a disgusting, disgusting psycho, and for my husband to wish he had never poked … [Read More...]

My mother’s daughter.

You would think that with me sitting stagnant on the couch, I would just spend oodles of time blogging. Turns out...life's not so exciting on the couch. Hmpf. I had all these grand ideas, like reading and writing and painting my toenails this super cute dark red trampy color I got the other … [Read More...]

Greetings from the couch.

Bed rest can suck it.Apparently, my blood pressure was high at my appointment yesterday, and that, along with some very annoyingly constant cramping, has sounded an alarm, and I have been restricted to couch duty until my re-check next week.So, I am doing my mothering and wifing from the couch this … [Read More...]

It’s not rocket science, it’s just Beef Quesadillas.

The weeks after a major holiday also equals a whole lot of me sitting on my ass, not wanting to do anything. It also means lots of dinners made in either one pan, a crock pot or a casserole dish, and is both super cheap and super easy. This is for one of those nights.   Quesadilla … [Read More...]

A New Year.

I hope you are all having a stellar new year! Mine has been pretty great so far. I mean, I haven't showered or washed my hair all year, but I am pleased to say, I have remained sober, and only had 6 brownies the entirety of 2009...which is an improvement from last year. Holla! Did you all … [Read More...]

Another one for the books.

Christmas '08 was the balls. I loved it, the boys loved it, even my scroogey hubby loved it. The gifts were amazing, the family wasn't smothering, and the food was to die for. The boys got completely spoiled, and it was the first year they really got the whole Santa Claus delivering gifts … [Read More...]
