In sickness and in health…

June 27, 2008

Medical emergency! Medical emergency! I think my husband is going blind! BLIND! It’s weird, because he hasn’t really complained of vision problems, and he was playing video games all afternoon. Tsk, tsk, poor guy. He probably doesn’t want to worry or upset me, meanwhile, he is secretly freaking out on the inside. He is so […]

Even Wonder Woman hurts sometimes.

June 26, 2008

This is the part of my blog where I use humor to make light of semi-serious situations because my coping mechanisms are in the shitter, and the shitter’s full. As always, wild inappropriateness is my go to drug. Today was my very first day of therapy. Yes, my turn as a tortured, starving artist has […]

The facts of (my) life.

June 24, 2008

1. There are two types of people in this world. The people who put little marshmallows in fruit salad, and the people who don’t. I don’t. 2. I have decided I need a boob job. When I lay on my back they fall to the sides and I am as flat as a 12 year […]

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 […]
