I'm not great with dates. As a matter of fact, I struggle remembering if my husband's birthday is September 29 or 30. It's the 30th...

A few months ago I created a 101 in 1001 list of all the things I would like to try/learn/accomplish in the next two and 3/4 years.

A month or so ago I blogged about my Uncle Chris, and then yesterday I shared synchronized ATV's that occurred during my Grand-Dad's 80th birthday party. For this week's Camo Friday I wanted to incorporate how both of those posts are related. Originally when Grand-Dad's party was planned, it was supposed to be a surprise. … Continue reading Camo Friday: Cupcakes
My family... (If you could see me as I'm typing this, I actually closed my eyes and took a deep breath.)
