Too much to catch you up on, too little time. I know things on the interwebs move fast so here’s a little snapshot with images and videos from the haps as of late. 1. I’m dying of humility mixed with feelings of awesomeness when my new (best-selling) client compliments me to her fanbase. I’m working for her as a Research...


5 Things You Don’t Know About Me…

old-famo

Well, you may not know these things. I don’t know what you know but I don’t think I’ve mentioned them much here so perhaps not. Let’s see… 1. The name of my first band was Emil Muzz. I scored the gig as lead singer in that band one fateful night while tagging along on a babysitting job. It was Christmas...


I’m Home From Vacation, But I’m Not…

I was only slightly embarrassed by my chunky white thighs.

For the second year in a row, we took the kids to stay in a cabin just outside the Smoky Mountain National Park. My (Cherokee) grandmother is from that area and we had family there so we went there allllllll the time when I was a kid. I took HH there when we first got married and now we get...

Des Moines VBAC Workshop

I did it. I made it through three weeks living away from my family, three weeks of my field practicum, and three VBAC Workshops (holy crap! That’s a lot to pack in 21 days!)

I’m hoping that some folks will leave their thoughts on the subject matter in the comments. As always, I’d love your feedback, opinions, and advice.

On Sunday afternoon, I sat at my desk finishing a homework assignment while HH ran a few errands. I hadn’t seen any news events of the day, nor had I even visited facebook yet. When HH came home, he walked over to my desk and said, “Such a bummer about what happened to Philip Seymour Hoffman, huh?” My heart immediately...


When Life Gives You Lemons, Part Two…

bootindress

The first three weeks of this year were pretty much bullshit. Between that damn flu and the broken/dislocated toe, I really worried that this year had nothing but bad news in store. But Friday marked a little change in the weather (not the actual weather, oh hell no, that’s still pulling that Polar Vortex shit up in these parts, but...
