Obligatory New Year’s Post

Oh geez, it's past 11 PM on New Year's day and I still haven't written my obligatory New Year's post... How are you all supposed to know what my resolutions are, or how great or terrible 2017 was, or what my sights for 2018 are if I don't write a blog post about it?! First… Continue reading Obligatory New Year’s Post

Throwback Thursday: Remembering the ’90s

So I came across this post by The Emma Edit today... and I thought "Hey, it's a Thursday... and, MAN, do I love the '90s..." SO, here I am to answer the same questions from her part one and two on this topic. I know you're excited. You're hiding it well... but I can tell.… Continue reading Throwback Thursday: Remembering the ’90s

Hitchhiker’s Guide to… not losing your freaking mind

The thing about ridiculously long road trips - which I suppose are not really all that ridiculous, but increasingly feel ridiculous as the trip wears on - is that the driver inevitably needs something to divert her attention just enough as to not cause insanity to set in while at the same time not so… Continue reading Hitchhiker’s Guide to… not losing your freaking mind

Tee hee heeeeeee

My husband came down to the living room where I was sitting, watching TV, to inform me he had a new story for my blog. I had free reign over the words that followed  to share with the masses. He had just been taking a bath, trying to warm up after a long day out… Continue reading Tee hee heeeeeee

Reblogging Emma: Maja Memory #1

Reblogging Emma: Anneke and Heather

Post #4 of my flashback/recycled posts - this one is from February 2015 - one of the very first memories I posted. “It’s your turn to sit in the back, Emma.” “Only if you put the top up!” I said as I climbed into the back of Heather’s convertible. It was the middle of Swedish… Continue reading Reblogging Emma: Anneke and Heather

Reblogging Emma: I’m a Mean Wife

Post #3 in my flashback/recycling series - this one was also made private awhile back and was a continuation of the first post I posted in this series (An Evil Woman.) Originally posted in December 2015. A few months ago I was laying in bed reading or writing or some such literary activity when my… Continue reading Reblogging Emma: I’m a Mean Wife

Reblogging Emma: Word F**kery

Post #2 for my recycling of my content series. This one is from June 2015... It contains some additional content. I don’t know if it’s the insomnia I’ve had over the past few days, or simply the fact that I’ve been looking at and listening to other languages a lot this weekend. I have been… Continue reading Reblogging Emma: Word F**kery

Reblogging Emma: An Evil Woman

Post number one for my recycling of old posts series, this one is originally from December 2015- this one was actually made private awhile back when my husband expressed displeasure at being talked about on my blog. He has now; however, eased on that front. So here you go: re-sharing an incident that I still… Continue reading Reblogging Emma: An Evil Woman

Flashback Saturday? …No… That’s not right…

Good Morning, lovelies. I have been mulling over an issue this week regarding my blog. Earlier this week, a blog I follow - Suzie Speaks - wrote a post about recycling blog content. Talking about reblogging oneself or reediting old content into new posts as once a blog starts gaining many more followers than it… Continue reading Flashback Saturday? …No… That’s not right…

Melodic Memories

The kid was adorable, if I must admit. I call him a kid because he was a year and a half plus a day younger than I  and as teenagers that gap felt enormous. As if that whole extra year and a day really made a difference - I had dated Andre earlier in the… Continue reading Melodic Memories

I never knew I was addicted until I tried to stop…

I know what you're thinking... Is she about to tell us some deep dark secret about a personal struggle with drug addiction? Alcoholism? OMG Has she been introduced to LULAROE?! Actually, I think I may have mentioned my Lularoe addiction in passing already... Hmmmm... But no. My confession is nothing quite so lascivious. Not at… Continue reading I never knew I was addicted until I tried to stop…

“We are the Loudest Tooth Fairy”

I have gleaned permission from Dane to share with you a text conversation we had around midnight last night. I thought perhaps you guys would find it as amusing as I did. I'm tempted to just post screenshots with his real name blotted out... but that smacks of cheating on a writing blog... LOL Though… Continue reading “We are the Loudest Tooth Fairy”

Happy Blogaversary to meeeee :)

Well there you go, I knew it would come up soon but didn't know the exact date - until WordPress let me know today that my blog is now a toddler! A whole 2 years old! I honestly didn't expect I would stick with it this long. It seems to me that blogging is essentially… Continue reading Happy Blogaversary to meeeee 🙂

St Valentines vs St Patricks

Well, it's that time of year again... St Patrick's day?? WHAT?? I started seeing St Patrick's day stuff in Walmart last week... NOOOOOoooooooo! Then I saw this on my Facebook newsfeed today: ...Of which I would totally rock if it weren't clearly St Patrick's day related. Ugh. I used to love St Patrick's day.

When one has a boyfriend…

Oh my goodness you guys, I completely forgot about something.

Emotional Response

Last night I submitted a post to be a guest writer on another blog, and in the meantime I wanted some feedback while I wait for it to be published. I suppose that it's a bit backward and I should have looked for feedback before submitting it, but oh well. I was telling Maja about… Continue reading Emotional Response

Well, Hello Sailor

The problem with asking your best friends for ideas for your blog is that they will invariably bring up that they still laugh when you write BJJ - for it's resemblance to the acronym "BJ" - and then suggest that that you write something vulgar. Well, that's my best friends for you anyway. So, no,… Continue reading Well, Hello Sailor

Vulgar Things

Ever look at someone and think... Well, no, what I thought when I saw his picture is probably not kosher to relay on a blog or where anyone that only moderately knows me may read. Or, you know... like my mother might see or something. I suppose I'm not above writing vulgar things, even here,… Continue reading Vulgar Things
