Y’all come back now… again… tomorrow… maybe.

Guys, I am very sorry to report that the special surprise will not be happening today. Due to circumstances out of my control, it is not ready to be unveiled JUST yet. But probably tomorrow. Probably. Dang. Who wants to unveil a surprise on the weekend, when everyone is not at their computer all day…

Y’all come back now, you hear?

Be sure to check back later today for a very special surprise. I’m serious. But before your mind goes all haywire, know that the surprise is none of the following: 1) An engagement ring. 2) An ultrasound photo. 3) Anything related to “Lost.” I haven’t watched yet.

Competition

It appears as though Jim Halpert may have a run for his money. This was the world’s most humble and magnanimous win I have ever witnessed. I am blown away by this man. His modesty and grace make him so likable, I can hardly stand it. David Cook has cemented himself into my heart, and…

Weighing the pros & cons

Nashville: The GOOD • Rosepepper Cantina and their delish margaritas • The full-scale replica of the Parthenon (we are the Athens of the South) • Gentlemen who hold the door Nashville: The BAD • Too many guys in stove-pipe jeans and vests and weird almost-rat-tail hair • The Tennessee GOP’s video attacking Michelle Obama •…

Happy Happy :: Joy Joy

I struggle with discontentment on a regular basis. Oh mercy, I fight it at every turn. I am convinced – convinced – that if I could do or get juuuust one more thing, then I would be happy. Throughout the years, my “one more thing” has taken different forms. When I was little, I wanted…
