Can you believe another Christmas has come and gone! I swear, every year feels shorter than the last. When I mentioned this to my uncle a couple days ago, he made a good point. He said, "Oh you just wait..." His theory is that they will continue to feel shorter and shorter because with every […] Read the whole post!
Parenting is not for sissies, I've said it before and I'll say it again. There are days when I feel like I've been bested by a 4 year old and like bedtime just can't come fast enough. But just as quickly as those days come and blindside you, so do the moments that make it […] Read the whole post!
First thing's first... let's address some very sad news. It's official y'all. My hard drive is DEAD and they can't retrieve ANY data off of it. I know this shouldn't come as such a surprise... but I really thought that they'd be able to get my photos. I mean, how many tv shows have […] Read the whole post!

I like to shower in the dark. Do you think that's weird? Hubbalicious thinks it's weird. Inevitably, whenever I'm enjoying a nice peaceful shower with the lights out, he walks in and makes fun of me for this weird, quirky thing that I do. I mean, it's not like it's pitch black, I have a […] Read the whole post!
Okay, so it's not very often that The Sannar's start feeling crafty. In fact, I would venture to say that Hubbalicious almost NEVER feels the need to get crafty. But he likes spending time together, and lucky for me, he's a good sport. So on Saturday morning, when I mentioned that it would be fun […] Read the whole post!
