Freaky Friday: Practical Jokes and Nonsense

 on January 9, 2014

My husband and I have a really great group of friends in our neighborhood. Lucky for us, they all have the same crazy sense of humor we do and that makes life a lot of fun.

Practical jokes run wild. We really enjoy trying to "one-up" each other. 

My friend Keri recently made a short movie of well wishes for another friend's 40th Birthday. I taped my segment dressed as Si from Duck Dynasty. 

Freaky Friday- The Christmas Lists

 on December 18, 2013

Each Christmas, we travel to my parent's cabin in the mountains and spend the week being surrounded by family, a warm fire, and three feet of snow.  

It is my favorite week of the whole year!

Freaky Friday- The Wisdom Teeth

 on November 26, 2013

The time had come, for my oldest daughter Maddie to get her Wisdom teeth out.

She was having some tooth pain and worried that it would become impacted, the dentist set up an appointment with the oral surgeon the next morning.

As any good parent without dental insurance knows, your first response to this information is, "How the heck are we going to pay for this?!?!?"

Freaky Friday- The Runner

 on November 8, 2013

A few years ago, I decided to pick up running. It just sort of felt like it was something I should do. My parents were both runners, and I remember riding my bike behind my dad while he trained for the Chicago Marathon. And I have a lot of friends who are runners.

Long distance, graceful, attractive runners.

So, I thought, hey, maybe I should do that. 

There were two problems with this:

Freaky Friday: The Duck

 on October 10, 2013

One thing I am historically great at, is over extending and overbooking our family on family vacations. I mean, why shove in only 4 activities a day when you can shove in 5?! Why visit one city when you can visit three? 

"Come on, we can do it, it will be FUN!" are common words said to my husband when he is trying to get me to look realistically at our vacation schedule and finances. 

Freaky Friday- The Circus Dog

 on August 14, 2013
It's Freaky Friday! Where you can learn about my crazy family we call our circus. My husband is the Ringmaster, I am the bearded lady and our kids are the monkeys!

While sitting at a work meeting today, I got a random text from The Kindest Monkey;

"Scrappy just threw up a sock."

Great Expectations, Norman Rockwell and Boogers

 on May 28, 2013

I love being a mom.

I love spending time with my kids and hanging out as a family. 

Like, crazy love, to the point where I used to ruin things.

I had a very bad habit of putting these HUGE expectations on myself and on my family.

I would get all these ideas in my head about events and occasions and how they are going to go.

I would plan fun activities, vacations, holiday breaks with SO much expectation!

In my mind, no one was going to fight, cry or complain.
