Intervention

June 23, 2008

Hello, my name is Brittany, and I am addicted to pancakes, the internet and Gossip Girl. I know I should be ashamed, but I’m not. What are you addicted to, friends? Oh, and no one say puppies, rainbows or baby laughs…because we all know that’s not true. COPYRIGHT BAREFOOT FOODIE 2009 All rights reserved. This […]

Why I love this man….oh, and larvae.

June 22, 2008

Today sucked. I mean sucked! I spent the whole morning cleaning up garage sale junk, soaked from yesterday’s monsoons. We are going to give the garage sale one more go of it next weekend, before we drop our junk goodies off at some unsuspecting charity. I decided to store all the stuff in our never-used-mudroom/ […]

10 days to hotness.

June 20, 2008

Sometimes, when your husband isn’t home, and you are left all alone to sort through all your old skinny clothes to sell at your garage sale tomorrow, and it’s after midnight, and you are drinking a beer listening to Air Supply, and you feel all lonely and sweaty and fat…you make rash decisions. Like, oh, […]

What’s a girl to do with 4 lbs. of strawberries?

June 19, 2008

My oldest and I spent the evening picking strawberries. He had an absolute blast, and considering he ate his weight of berries in the field, I am pretty sure I am going to be elbow deep in red seedy poop this week. It keeps things spicy. Aside from being blatantly misdressed for any event that […]

Fighting the good fight

June 19, 2008

What? A girl finally shaves above her knee cap, puts a dress on, meets some other ladies for dinner, drinks excessively…and that automatically means they are going to see Sex and the City? Well, we’re not. Apparently, that table of cougars to left is, as they gulp their flirtinis, adjust their wrinkly cleavage in their […]

The Fab Five

June 16, 2008

No, this isn’t an episode of Friends, where we all sit around at the Central Perk, drinking from huge mugs and hashing out our lists, trying to out pop culture reference each other with long winded banter (Could this conversation be any more irrelevant?). Nope. This is just pretty much the list of the five […]

Fathers Day

June 14, 2008

This is my husband. Without argument, he is, hands down, the greatest dad on earth. He doesn’t know this, but when he thinks I am not paying attention, I hear him sing silly songs to the boys, and it makes me fall in love with him all over again. This man will do anything to […]

I know this much is true…

June 14, 2008

1. Putting toothpaste with fluoride on a zit before you go to bed will dry it up by morning. 2. Too much black eye liner makes me look like a hooker. 3. Strapless bras don’t work for me….ever. 4. My kids will always ruin my spray tan before it’s dry with snot and goo. 5. […]

A slow news day.

June 12, 2008

What’s bigger than the annual Corn Fest? Bigger than the semi annual Chicken Fest? What is so big, that it single handedly drew out the entire 2300 person population of my town? Let me set the scene. It was a hazy afternoon. The humidity was heavy, and the small town was sleepy in the summer […]

The greatest show on earth.

June 11, 2008

Wait, what’s that? The circus has come to town you say? But where is the smell of popcorn and roasting peanuts? Where are the clowns? Where the elephant poop? Oh wait. I’m not at the circus. I’m just standing in my backyard. Why is everything so extreme these days? Why are they selling giant blow […]
