National Western Stock Show Tickets Giveaway

Congratulations to Sara Lily, winner of our Proctor and Gamble giveaway! I have never been to the National Western Stock Show due to The Plague that consumes me every January. But this year will be different. Not only am I plague-free but little did I know my reoccurring illness has left me bereft of a […]

A Taste of Culture this Holiday Season

Even though I’ve got a holiday to-do list a mile long…plus work that continues to pile up…not to mention a desperate need to vacuum and mop…I’m going to treat myself this week. No, not a facial or a massage or even a haircut (although that wouldn’t be a bad idea). I’m going to see the […]

A Family Who Bags Together, Learns Together

I completely abhor raking leaves. It comes from growing up in Maryland, where there are a LOT of leaves, and a LOT of wet, gooey leaves. In fact, when Bryan asked me to marry him, I said yes only on the condition that I would NEVER have to rake another leaf again. And Bryan had […]

Cabin Fever Redefined

I am writing this as part of my recovery. At least this is what my pseudo-therapist-husband prescribed. To preface this confession, my disclaimer is that I have never been one to be caught up in the material world of lavish houses, clothing and cars. I loathe the haughtiness of country clubs and abhor shopping anywhere […]

The Quest

You would think Indiana Jones himself was responsible for placing the sacred bowl in our cupboard. It’s easy to imagine what he went through in his quest for our treasure. Mostly likely he dodged snakes launched from the mouths of ancient gods, carved in the stone of underground burial chambers in 1930s Prague. With Nazis […]

A Love Letter to the Rockies

Dearest Rockies, [photopress:Rockies.jpg,thumb,pp_image] This letter is actually on behalf of my husband, Jamie. He has been a devout follower since your amazing winning streak (I believe the correct term for him is “fair-weather fan.”) Regardless, he is committed to your cause and can be seen wandering around with bloodshot eyes after particularly late nights out […]

The Great Pumpkin Contest

[photopress:IMG_7751.jpg,thumb,1]My family’s dinner conversations have gone from how to eradicate war and famine to the intricacies of growing the biggest pumpkin. (Though I am sure my obsessed husband Jamie would somehow argue the latter is the solution to world peace). It started out innocently last spring when he planted the first pumpkin seed. Over the […]

On Being a Mile High Mama

Monday was one of those beautiful crisp days that make me love the outdoors. I’m a city girl at heart. I loved living in high-rise apartments in New York, New Jersey, and Northern Virginia. Who needs closet space and a yard to mow when you’ve got a balcony with a sweeping view of the Manhattan […]
