Crow and Cake

Before I tell you all about my week – I feel compelled to describe my current surroundings to you. It’s a Sunday morning. My supposed “drunkard” neighbors (that was gossip from the old man down the street who apparently watches everyone all day) are in the back yard in Hawaiian-looking getups, not yet arguing but [...]


Snow (Cookies) in April?

I was spoiled this weekend with a pleasant surprise – Thomas came home for the Easter weekend. I’ve seen him three weekends in a row now and I’m practically spoiled rotten. Of course, he left this afternoon which means I’m sad now and my case of the Monday’s is probably going to be even worse [...]

I Chip You Not, I Gave it a Shot

This week was a bit of a doozy. I took Thursday and Friday off of work and, very much like being on winter break when I was in school, it feels like I’ve forgotten what day it is. Time seems to have melted together for me and I’m not really hating it. I can tell [...]

The Most Punderful Time of Year

I know I blogged about Christmas presents last week, but I couldn’t help myself. I might be mistletoeing the line here, but you’ll have to forgive me. It’s the most punderful time of the year! Last week, I went to a Christmas Luncheon at the home of one of my coworkers.  During a fun get-to-know-you [...]


Today is a blog day, and it’s not just any blog day – it is the 100th blog day! 100 BLOGS I’ve written and posted 100 blogs – call me cynical, but I doubt there is anyone out there who can say that they’ve read all the blogs. (Except for myself, of course.) **Edit: Denise [...]

A Good|Bad|Good Sandwich

Hi Guys! I have a lot of stuff to cover in a small space so here goes nothing- A Good|Bad|Good Sandwich. You know how you’re supposed to give criticism in a Good|Bad|Good sandwich so that the person doesn’t feel utterly defeated? Well, I think Mother Nature was reminding me last weekend that life isn’t perfect [...]

Undercover Baker – Work Baby Shower Style

Hi Guys! Happy whatever day you happen to be reading this!  It’s a beautiful sunny morning here in the ever-lovely North Carolina where I’m writing this. The birds are chirping and the coffee is hot, we’re getting back to some of the most wonderful weather NC offers. Thinking about spring and its beautiful weather reminds [...]

Of Nature Walks, Part 2

Hi Guys! I hope you had a great week this week.  I did, for sure.  The weather here in NC has been absolutely incredible.  I’m talking mid-60s to almost 80 degrees (that’s Fahrenheit for all my non-American friends) and partly cloudy with these glorious breezes that have made it almost impossible to not keep every [...]

The Quest for the Cookie

Happy Father’s Day! To all the people dads out there, and the pupper (or kitty) dads out there, and the men-who-influence-our-lives-but-aren’t-our-biological-father dads out there – You’re awesome and I appreciate you for everything you do.  Everything.  Even walking into the room to fart and walk back out again. (Not that my dad does that… Not that [...]
