My wonderful in-laws invited us on a little day trip to the Iowa State Fair so last weekend we made the 2 hour drive to Des Moines. I can't tell you how much I love driving across Iowa. Most people not from the Midwest just see it as flat and boring but I love the

*I got bit on the forehead by something yesterday and now it's swollen to the size of a ping pong ball. Should I be worried about spider eggs exploding from my face or some kind of terrible face exploding insect saliva or something? *I admit it... I cry every time I watch The Notebook... I

I had my first soda (well.... let's assume orange San Pellegrino doesn't REALLY count as soda okay?) in over 3 months. I went with Cherry Pepsi only because Zio's doesn't have Coke products. I know. Sick. Well. I drank about half of it before I had to switch to water. It tasted like yuck and

  So... I am in the waiting room at the doctors office digging around in my purse while an old lady stares at me. I finally find the piece of gum I am searching for and unwrap it only to have it fling onto the floor. I stare at it a moment then lean over

*I need a delicious dessert, a bubblebath, and a good book. So I'll settle for homemade iced oatmeal cookies, a foot rub, and a mediocre book. *Making a lavender chamomile hand salve. Should be awesome. It smells wonderful. *Made 1 perfect cupcake, ate it, and it was delicious. The end. *I'm not sure why we

*I'm reading To Kill A Mockingbird for the 15th time and I don't think I will ever get tired of this book. *There it goes and here it comes. *I just ran a mile and a half on my first real run in about 5 years. That felt completely amazing. *So, I almost hit a
