I am all about gratitude. Every morning after I wake, I whisper “thank you” three times for getting the chance to live another day. Yeah, probably should’ve mentioned that one to my hubby; the first couple of times I started doing that, he thought I was possessed. I feel very fortunate. Every day, I reflect on three things … More Grateful This day is THROUGH
Who cares? I have asked myself that question every single time I have sat down to write a blog post, for almost a year now. Seriously, I have like 12 drafts in WordPress-land that will never see the light of day. I’ve been struggling, friends and fellow bloggers. It’s been brutal. Growing up, and even into … More Who Cares?
Isn’t that the truth? Last Sunday, I had the pleasure of spending my day with some amazing people, celebrating one of my high school friend’s 40th birthday. It was a blissfully buzzed day, and I truly enjoyed myself, reminiscing about the days of past. After arriving home that evening, the laughs continued while we caught up with my … More Religion, viCARIously Speaking – Part 2
I was recently prompted with a question: What does it mean to be a good parent? In my opinion, and simply put, scraping peanut butter off of toast. Every morning before work, I brew my coffee, get out my vitamins, and prepare my breakfast. I then wake up my youngest daughter and start getting her ready … More Scraping Peanut Butter Off of Toast
Let’s play a game… I will give you several clues, and you tell me who slipped the girl the date rape drug. Sounds fun, huh? **Clue #1 – The girl went out to grab some beers, with her male cousin and his girlfriend.** **Clue #2 – The three went to a very respectable bar, known … More A Game of Roofies
I was pumped all day for my long run tonight. 20+ miles done in 6 runs in 10 days. I was ready to #getsome! Only I wasn’t. All weekend long we were trapped inside the house awaiting the “Biggest Ice Storm in 10 Years”. It never happened. Yes, we got some great family snuggle time. … More Just… Bleh.
I am a very superstitious person. Find a penny heads up, make a wish and pocket it. Tails up, hand it off to someone else to make the wish. Right palm itching means you’re coming into money. A broom falling means company will soon be coming to visit. 11:11, make a wish. Spill salt? Better … More Don’t Forget the Black-Eyed Peas!!
Do you know when you have one person going into the restroom at the same time another person is leaving, both exerting the same amount of force to open the door, but it not being enough power to hint that there is someone on the other side of the door, causing both parties involved to … More Latex Gloves
Definitely a plus in the "snacks" department at Buffalo Wild Wings: a pickle, celery, 4 olives, and a lime wedge. Tasty mix but I don't think there was much vodka in this Bloody Mary. #bloodymarytrials #bloodymary #vicariouslyspeaking A post shared by Cari Hoover (@sixbemuse) on May 29, 2016 at 1:44pm PDT
Coming in at last place….. With a little work, this could be an excellent Bloody Mary. Martin said that a traditional Bloody is shaken with ice then strained into a glass, but with no ice and no snacks, even the best mix and vodka combo falls flat in my book. #bloodymary #bloodymarytrials #daydrinking #luckyrooster A … More The Bloody Mary Trials – The Lucky Rooster
