Introduction to the Pioneer Woman Cookbook Challenge Which is why it has been quiet here lately. That, my work schedule and family events. My kiddo was up from school for a couple of weekends. For those of you who have adult children, you know that those moments when you kiddos come around are so precious. Let me tell y’all about this quest that I am … Continue reading I am on a Quest!
Earlier last week I had an extra passenger whom I unknowingly at first hitched a ride with me. Now before you jump to conclusions no there wasn’t a psycho murder waiting for me in my car to take them to where they wanted to go. Instead I had a passenger who hung six on the hood of my car the entire drive into work. My … Continue reading Hanging Six All the Way to Work
You know that old saying; “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade!” I am there. I am not going to divulge what it is that has me frustrated and discouraged and feeling like….uggh, but after reading an article on LinkedIn on my lunch break this afternoon, I now know that I am not the only one out there in this same predicament. I know that … Continue reading Oh, Lemons!!!!
Last Sunday was one of the scariest moments for me as a parent. At 1:42 am I was awaken by the most strangest sound coming out of my cell phone. It wasn’t part of the normal symphonic sounds that would normally chime from my phone. This sound was hard to describe but foreign enough to wake me out of my slumber. As looked over on … Continue reading Too Close
Life in my world of writing has been a little bit uneventful. Truthfully when it comes down to it, I don’t want to be burned out on the blogging thing. Not to mention I really haven’t had a moment to carve out the time to write, however, it doesn’t mean that my life in the real world hasn’t been uneventful. All last week the biggest … Continue reading To Be Fair…

You know the ones … Continue reading Don’t Forget To…. (No Excuse!!!!)
Last weekend TW and I went to a sound system debut hosted by TW’s friend Jim. The same Jim I asked to play Don’t Call Me Al by Paul Simon on New Years Eve. Then absolutely caught him off guard with my song request. What? What do you mean, don’t call you Al? Your name is Alexandria after all! Yep, that friend Jim! The new … Continue reading Shed Ivy
For those or I should say for all patriotic Americans….Happy Fourth of July! Our city had their fireworks last night and for TW and I we are just going to celebrate today quietly. Well, on one exception. We were invited to attend one of my co-worker’s 4th/daughter’s birthday party. Her birthday girl turns ten today. It seems like ages since I had a ten year … Continue reading The Explosive 4th
It is hard to believe that TW and I have been in our new place for a month now and the dust of the moving hype is finally starting to settle. We both agreed the next time we move it will be a slow gradual move if we can help it. I don’t know about any of you but I haven’t met a person yet … Continue reading Settling In
When the Magnolia Journal first appeared on newsstands the idea of it didn’t thill me until I actually picked up a copy and was impressed. I love the down to earth approach to their magazine! The thing I have taken notice is how they theme the issues. For example this past issue for spring is all about authenticity. For example this past issue for spring … Continue reading Authenticity, Fandoms and Other Nagging Thoughts
