I need to start this post with an apology, because what I’m about to do to you is unforgivably painful. It will make your face hurt. Your ears bleed. Your brain cells sizzle like root beer flavored jelly beans on a hot sidewalk in the middle of July. You will curse my name for the […]

You know how they say a picture is worth a thousand words? Well, today I’m showing you 10 pictures. You guys, that’s 10 thousand words. (apparently I think you’re lame at math.) Lucky for you I’m not going to get all “Tina the Alamo tour guide from Pee Wee’s Big Adventure” on you and describe […]

I think it can happen to anyone. I wouldn’t call it a BAD thing. I just think it’s common and we shouldn’t read too much into it. Or judge. To my face. I bought a bag of dried mixed beans soup thingy from Trader Joe’s. Uh huh, the one with the instructions printed on the […]

This time tomorrow morning, a couple of bloggy girlfriend bloggy bloggers and I will be well on our way to a city where country stars are born every 5 minutes.

I really need to trim my toenails. OH, HEY. Wow, you’re quiet. How long have you been standing there? Wow. Remember yesterday when I told you about my husband cooking for me all weekend due to an expensive mountain bike purchase? (I’m still coping.) Well, this here chili was another one of his creations. You […]

Now, before you’re all, “omg she made hatch chile sauce from scratch, you guys!” you need to know, it’s from a can. But this can was sent straight from the pearly green gates of hatch chile heaven. And my parents. Remember earlier this summer when they breezed through town on their way home from a […]

A couple of evenings ago my phone danced around on the kitchen table, alerting me of a new text. “I’ve some got butternut squash from my parent’s garden for ya. Can I drop by real quick?” Sa-weeeeet. We hadn’t grown any butternut squash in our garden this year (or ever), so when Carly brought the […]

Spaghetti and Meatballs

From the ages of 9 to 19, I lived in New Mexico. I lived in a small desert town in the Southeastern corner called Hobbs. We used to say, “It’s not what’s in Hobbs, it’s WHO’s in Hobbs.” Boy was that the freaking truth. Because WHAT was in Hobbs was tumbleweeds, oil and HEAT. And […]
