I couldn’t stop giving myself dirty looks and there was no controlling my scathing inner-dialogue. Finally I stopped and said out …

I’ve taken my show on the road!

There are several of things I have neglected to mention: 1. I now drive a mini-van. And yes, I once said I’d never drive a mini-van. It’s white, it has a DVD player, and it totally makes me even more of a cliche when I drive through the gas station to pick up my 32oz …

Have a Very Hoppy Easter!

If that isn’t the cutest picture you’ve ever seen. I’m not sure what is! Having a kid has changed Easter a ton! Egg Hunts are the new dance party (so many to attend, so little time!) and Easter crafts and baskets are beyond fun. Ginger is obsessed with bunnies, or, “HOP!” as she calls them. …
