Motherhood:  Not for the Faint of Stomach

I hopped in the car with the kids on Monday for a week-long trip to the booming metropolis of Knob Noster, Missouri. Yes, since you asked, we do lead glamorous lives.

Brian is working in Knob Noster all week, and I thought it would be a sanctifying experience if the kids and I joined him there for five days in a military hotel. I woke up with no alarm at 6:30 a.m. on Monday (seriously, that’s a miracle in and of itself) with a list of things I needed to accomplish before our 4:00 p.m. estimated departure. I wanted to wait until after Averi’s nap to hit the road, and I knew I would need every bit of the morning and afternoon to pack for a week in a hotel with two toddlers.

We have the “face” of the blog:  yours truly. I provide the riveting accounts of my daily life and the lives of my family members. I strive to keep you up-to-date with groundbreaking accounts of my bathroom breaks and solo trips to the grocery store. I’m proud of the work I do here because I know that I am literally changing lives with my frequent Starbucks cup photos (see above). It’s truly humbling. Read more →

I found a fun, new way to creep out your neighborhood, Starbucks barista!

After my hubby got home from his class this afternoon, I decided to go grab a coffee and head to the grocery store – alone. Believe me, after a cross-country flight to Atlanta and a scream-filled road trip to Montgomery, Alabama, I needed some solo time.
