An Elf & Her Grand Idea

**Before I get to the hot messiness of this story, I am going to tell you a back story** So this past Christmas Santa was struggling to get Q the perfect “big gift”. QMonster didn’t ask for anything (Well….technically he asked for things but his list included a riding lawn mower, a real monster truck, […]

Crowned Up: A Stay-Cation

I hate the dentist. Like flat out HATE. Just thinking about going to the dentist gives me anxiety. No lie, I have to get the “happy gas” just to get my teeth cleaned. I ALWAYS tear up when I get in the chair. Don’t ask me why…I think its just my nerves.  I gag like […]

Throwing Up Grace

“OH MY GOSH. QUINLAN JAMES!  GO TO THE BATHROOM. WHYYYYYY did you do that?” As much as I don’t want to, I have to admit I yelled this as QMonster sat in my bed throwing up what seemed like a gallon of chocolate milk. Nobody wants to be scolded when they are throwing up. I know […]

Because This Is 35

On October 19 1982 JHub graced the world with his presence. October 19 2017 JHub turned 35.

Un-Breathe-liveable

Last Monday was the Monday-iest of Mondays to ever Monday! Literally…it was a true Monday. A Monday that proved why Mondays get such a bad rap. A Monday from H*ll if you will. It started out pretty typical. I got QMonster up and ready for school. He had a mini freak out because it was […]

Celebration???

A few weeks back I was scrolling through Facebook when I came across an advertisement for a birthday cake cheesecake at Cheesecake Factory. I sent the picture to my mom and sister declaring we HAD to get our hands on this delish looking treat! A few days later I invited them to go shopping and […]

This shit is bananas, B-A-N-A-N-A-S.

This is a re-publish from our Sports & Stationery blog I used to write. It popped up on my “On This Day” feature on Facebook and I thought it was a good one….Originally written on Friday, August 7, 2015. QMonster was 3 at the time. I thought I would interrupt my “Sappy Post Series” with […]

My Corny Shower Story

This is a story all about how my shower got flipped turned upside down. I’d like to take a minute. Just sit right there, I’ll tell you how an ear of corn interrupted washing my hair. BTW if you didn’t notice, that was supposed to be sung to the tune of the Fresh Prince of […]

I Don’t Want My Son To Start Kindergarten

QMonster starts school on August 10th. I can’t lie…I am just not excited about it. I literally had to coach myself to hold it together in Belk’s Boy’s section during Tax Free Weekend. I almost broke down AGAIN in Hibbets when QMonster was trying on his “big boy school shoes”.  Go ahead and call me […]
