My Favorite Female Musician of All Time

My favorite female musician of all time is Patty Griffin. Her music moves me at the deepest level. She is a singer/songwriter and a master at her craft. I’ve seen her in concert several times and each show has been a unique and original experience. I first heard Patty’s music when my friend Sarah played…

Trapped in a Box

I posted this pic on Facebook earlier today. This is where poor Mrs Potato Head lives these days. I look at her and feel her pain. When I tried to come up with a quality blog post I kept thinking of her and how that is how my brain feels: trapped in a plastic box!…

Pancake Saturday {Cooking Adventures: Day 6}

Saturdays are for two things: sleeping in and eating pancakes. When I was little, I spent Friday nights at my Me-Maw’s house. Every Saturday morning she made me chocolate-chip pancakes. She would mix up the batter but she would let me help. I would scoot a kitchen table chair up next to where she stood…

Fathers Be Good to Your Daughters

#3. Save the day. She’ll grow up looking for a hero. It might as well be you. She’ll need you to come through for her over and over again throughout her life. Rise to the occasion. Red cape and blue tights optional. I am almost 35 weeks pregnant according to my “dates” but I think…

How To Name A Baby (How We Did At Least)

I wrote a post earlier this year about baby names. At the time, we didn’t yet know if we were team PINK or team BLUE.  Since then we have learned and confirmed that we are having a precious baby girl due in exactly two months!  Of course we were tickled pink (haha) to learn that…

Romancing the Rome – Ancient Rome – The Eternal City

I am sure I am going to write UNLIMITED posts about Rome.  I Love Rome.  End of blog. Rome was my favorite city.  The food, the city, the people, the atmosphere, the ANCIENTNESS of it all (is that a word?). Rome is the most inspiring city I have ever visited. I can’t really bring myself…

Making Music 2010 Style

I am an Apple person, my husband and I have all manner of I-products in our house, from Apple-TV to I-phones and everything in between. So you can imagine how stoked I was to see these videos. One I saw about a month ago, a video of a the band Atomic Tom playing a song…

F is for Florence and FOOD!

Sorry its taking me forever to document the trip! Today I want to tell you about Florence.  It was a very quick trip… we arrive around lunchtime on a Wednesday and left first thing Friday morning for Rome. This limited us to stay in Florence proper, meaning no day-trips to wineries or hill towns.  This…
