The countdown begins

Earlier this week I hit the 90 day mark. That’s right…90 days until my little girl is here. 90 days to get prepared for her, to make sure she has the best rated stroller, crib, etc. that we can afford along with canning some baby food for future use. Oh yeah, and starting her college […]

The Civil Wars

Yeah, yeah, I know. They’ve been around for a few years now, but I’m slowly discovering them. My favorite, by far, is their cover of “You Are My Sunshine”. I get the chills EVERY time I hear it. Closely followed by their cover of “Billie Jean” (I might just become a MJ fan) And, of […]
