I made some spirits PR contacts when I wrote for b5media and amazingly enough, they still email me with sweet cocktail recipes and have been know to send me the occasional bottle of amazing booze.

Referee No Longer

Filed Under: Life

If there's one thing that keeps things interesting in a house with two kids under four, it's the fights. Epic fights involving teeth, nails and lots and lots of screaming. I'm not the only one, right? Please tell me I'm not the only one. In the beginning, Cara and Ollie were thick as thieves. And they still are to ...

One eskimO Sticks with You

Filed Under: Reviews/Giveaways

Generally when I do something stupid I think about how I'm going to word it on here since I'm a big dork. I'll get back to the stupid here in a second. One 2 One Network sent me a CD to review by a band named . I like music. I like free music. I figured I'd ...

BlissReads FTW

Filed Under: Life

So on that silly cryptic post, I mentioned I'm curating for BlissReads and I know some of you are wondering what curating even means. If you've heard of Holy Kaw! - an offshoot of Alltop - then you know what I'm talking about. Mashable does some similar stuff though they seem to be focusing more on ...

Visit my sponsor: Freschetta Pizza

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Freschetta. All opinions are 100% mine. You know at the end of the month, Tucker always goes to drill and this past weekend was one of those weekends. For the most part, the kids and I had an uneventful weekend that involved quite a few ...

Why are You Always Banging Mommy?

Filed Under: Uncategorized

Tucker's going to drill and that means we have to stock up on things like milk and bread and such. It's not that I can't go by myself, it's that I don't want to. Since it was lunch time and we were out anyway, Tucker said we'd run through a fast food joint on the way ...

Diarrhea of the Mouth
