Timeless: For My Pappy’s Birthday

Staring at him laying in the hospital bed that the nurse had set up began this emptiness in my stomach that I knew would not be temporary. I thought about how he was battling cancer and pneumonia and the doctors sent him home saying there was nothing else they could do for him.  I thought…

& To Lou

Last night I partied with my grandfather in my dreams. Pappy had on that sharp blue suit  The one where when he walked down the street he immediately turned heads.  People would say, “I saw Lou and he’s still looking sharp.” There was music at this party It was a family affair and was as…

& I Don’t Know How To Girl

Growing up with two brothers  (and two step-brothers), I’ve mostly been the only girl! I got the best of both worlds. I had every Barbie that you could imagine yet I would still take my brother’s WWF figurines and stomp my feet crying until they let me play flag football with them. I was a cheerleader yet I…

& Summer’s Almost Over

Boot season & layering is almost upon us and I’m sort of okay with that. My summer has been pretty darn awesome. I won tickets to Cedar Point and got to take three people with me for an overnight trip to the park and the water park. Then, my mom and my aunt took me…

& Romy & Michele

I don’t have a memory of first meeting her. We just did. Her mom and my mom were best friends and 3 month ol’ me was in the waiting room when she was born. That’s our joke.  We got into trouble together and were each other’s alibis when we interrogated for it. We’ve had silly…

My step-father was “Big Antoine” until one day I felt left out and I just wanted a dad. Little old me just knew it worked that way. My brothers and sisters had parents and I just had mom. My step-father has many faults but not being a dad to his children has never been one….

& Adventures

March was full of adventure after freakin’ adventure I tell you! You know those Facebook contests that you swear are fake? They’re not! Thanks to Rue21  I  won a completely free trip to San Diego to meet Lea Michelle. They gave me spending money and put me and a friend in a suite.  I don’t…

& I Was Supposed to Blog Today but life happened.

I spent most of today playing with my little munchkins and by munchkins I mean my nine year old nephews. I insisted we play soccer and quickly called time out coming to the realization that I’m not in shape. We had fun though. & Other Realizations I’ve been talking to my ex again lately. We’ve…

& Maybe Technology Has Made Dating a Bit More Complicated

  Text messaging has to be one of the worst ways to get to know someone that you’re interested in dating. Text messaging leaves so much room for interpretation and it doesn’t seem as personal as picking up the phone and calling someone or going to a movie together. I think I’m going to make…
