McFatty Monday

Oh scale. Why do you torment me. You know I’m working out here! You know I’m trying to drink more water and eat less crap. Why won’t you work with me?? I stepped on the scale this morning expecting the worst.  I’m trying. I could be trying harder, but I’m trying. I didn’t make it […]

Motherhood Lessons

Before I was a mother, I prided myself on being reliable.  I was never late. I was always there when I said I’d be there and was notoriously tough on people who were late or who had a habit of bailing out last minute.  And then I became a mom. But if I’ve learned nothing […]

I’m a Southerner

If you are not from the South, it must be hard to understand why some people love it so very much.  I know it can seem backwards and silly at times. It can seem like we’re all living with our heads on backwards or our clothes on inside out. It can seem like we need […]


When you hear the word discipline, one of three things comes to mind: (1) punishment; (2) dedication/self-control; or (3) an area of knowledge.  On first glance, they are very different.  The first is done in anger, the second in a form of self-denial or training and the third is just, well…  schooling.  But if you […]

Three Little Birds

Isn’t it amazing how listening to a particular song or artist can just make or break your day?  I mean, I was not in the best mood this morning. It wasn’t a terrible morning, but it’s Wednesday and Wednesdays are just hard days. They are smack in the middle of the week, where Monday still […]

Last Night

There are a lot of things I didn’t get to do last night. I had planned on finding the list of work I got from one of the partners (big deal… can’t find it… sucks to be me). I had planned to drink a glass of wine and watch the Auburn game. I had planned […]

Motherhood. Period.

Certain things just don’t work well together. Peanut butter and mayonnaise. Bananas and ketchup. Things that independently aren’t terrible but together? Horrific. Motherhood and your period. Now those are two things that do. not. go together. I mean, they DO because you have to have one to have the other but they don’t because having […]

McFatty Monday

Well. Last week was a McFailure. I mean, I DID manage to make it to the gym so that was good. But I also managed to order a pizza, buy a carton of Salted Caramel Truffle ice cream, and forget about my water goals. So stepping on the scale this morning was not something I […]

What I’ve Learned from Blogging

I started this blog exactly one year ago. One year. And I’ve learned an awful lot since then. There are things I would have done differently, things I wouldn’t have said… things I would have said. There are things that I’ve done that I honestly NEVER thought I’d do. So in honor of my one […]

Saturday Rant

Responsibility is a big word. When you are a public figure, whether you like it or not, you have a responsibility for your actions. You have a responsibility for the things you say and do and the things you encourage other people to say and do. We often get fired up over things that Miley […]
