  Personally, I am not an amusement parker. I visit them, under duress, to please my thrill seeking family. I don’t like crowds, I don’t do heat, I hate being overcharged for random trinkets, and standing in line makes my back sore. Despite all that, I usually wind up having a blast in between bouts of screaming in real fear for my life and moments of feeling like I may truly barf up every single piece of the delectable funnel cake I devoured for lunch. Because dang it, I love funnel cake. And seeing my kids laugh uproariously at my…

Get ready for warm weather with cute spring shoes!

  Nothing says I haven’t updated my spring wardrobe like wearing knee high boots in May.

  I am NOT an outdoorsy person. It’s one of those things I feel particularly guilty about. Not guilty enough to like change it, but guilty enough to be like, man, I sure wish I liked being outside more because it’s kinda nice when I look at it from my window. And my kids. They LOVE being outside. They soak up all things active and outdoorsy. Swimming, hiking, biking, camping, snow boarding, spelunking (not even sure what that is, but I know one of them did it once). They are constantly begging me to do things that are miles outdoors-where-the-bugs-and-the-sun-are-all-over-you away…
