Stinky

My house reeks.

We are finally in the home stretch of having the lower level completed – only a few weeks left to go. Right now they’re working on staining the wood, and goodness me but there is a lot of wood down there to stain.

Whenever I think of the word ‘stinky’ my mind goes to the movie Green Mile. They’re all on death row, and the crazy guy in the corner cell starts singing, “Barbeque, me and you, stinky pinky, pew, pew, pew.” Yeah, a little morose. But it happens every time.

Do you connect random things with old movies?

  • If I could pick one season, it’d be fall. I’m in love with fall.  Sweaters and layers keeping me toasty warm all by themselves. No winter coats or snow boots to weigh me down. Not too hot. Not too cold. Heaven. And who could deny that relaxing with loved ones on a fall weekend retreat isn’t the… [Continue Reading]

    Fall is Heaven
  • I alluded to this yesterday, but I am one sleepy lady. We spent the weekend having far too much fun with amazing friends and their husbands (who are also amazing friends) at the most beautiful location a girl could dream up. I had tons of fun – started out by golfing with Ed and another… [Continue Reading]

    Mama Needs a Nap
  • This past weekend, both Tammy and I headed up north to the Wisconsin side of Lake Superior, for a couples only weekend getaway with friends at a beautiful renovated barn on the water. We had a fabulous time, talking about everything from food to friendship, parenting and sex, and more. And of course, we had… [Continue Reading]
