My Someone and I hosted our annual party this past weekend. I say annual party with no particular theme involved. You see, after our wedding, My Someone quickly realized his wife personality was "go big or go home" when it came to party planning and hosting. My creative driven mind and obsessive attention to detail … Continue reading Dog Costumes and Frito Chili Pies
Think back with me to some of the very first toys you ever played with as a child... Was one of them some type of box with cutouts, that you would stick shape pieces into the holes on the box? I believe most of us probably had one of these, or at least something similar. … Continue reading Star Shape, Square Hole
Let's go back to last Saturday. My Someone was in Middle-of-Corn, Kansas, the weather was absolutely gorgeous, I had only filled the house with smoke once with Easter-prep cooking (as opposed to twice the night before.) — Basically the complete package of a perfect spring day. My Someone and I were immersed in some really … Continue reading Operation Ice Cream

I know what it's like to diet or live off of unsweetened tea and steamed okra for two days in order … Continue reading Warning: Withdrawal Mode Activated
Warning: this blog contains my makeup-free face. Hide yo kids, hide yo wife, cuz we goin vegan up in here. I live smack dab in the middle of nowhere, and halfway on the way to everything. My closest small city is Joplin, which is an hour away. For something a little more urban like Tulsa, … Continue reading Rural Vegan
It's a pretty typical Monday morning, I'm sitting at my work computer at 6 a.m. attempting to write a feature story over dystocia in cattle, except I have writer's block, and Dolly Parton's "Why'd You Come in Here Looking Like That" stuck in my head. Why? I wish I knew... but it makes me think. … Continue reading No groceries were harmed in the making of this video.
I say lots of random things. My friend, David (Yoda, for those of you who frequent HH&SS) is on the receiving end of my "many bright ideas." Such as... "Hey, want to become partners in a Scottish Highlander cattle operation?"
