Family Trip to the Liquor Store

My Mom came to my house yesterday and last night, she took us to dinner at S&S. If you don’t know what S&S is, it is just like Morrison’s, except they don’t have the same lemon pie that Morrison’s had every Sunday after church when I was growing up. I got the usual, a veggie […]

Sitting On the Edge Of My Future

I am pretty sure that Facebook is slowly eating my blog. . . . However, here I am. I have been scanning more old photos, and came across a great set of pics from college. They are mostly from my college graduation. Here is the whole set on Flickr. A few things that initially struck […]

Almost As Good As World Peace

I think it was Tessa at Drive a Faster Car that first alerted me to The Atlanta Beer Guide. If you follow them on Twitter, they send out cool tweets, such as where the beer specials are that very day. Why did they not do this before I had kids? Anyway, today they delivered just […]

Evan’s Wedding

All joking about reading addictions aside, Evan’s wedding was a blast. Can you say Tiki bar? How about Shrimp and Grits? Not just seeing old friends, but getting to see them, without kids, for two days straight? My belly laughed like it hadn’t laughed in years – I was sore afterwards. (Or maybe that was […]

A Good Night

Rush to get work done. Kiss chilluns and husband goodbye. Finish more work. Decide against shower. Make up for no shower with makeup. Rush to pick up Ness. Speed demon over to Thinking Man’s. Miss first trivia questions. Suck at first round. Do better at second, while stuffing face and trying to watch UGA baseball […]

My Sordid Past

In the nostalgic spirit of my recent posts, Nat at The Negative Split has jumped on the bandwagon with a doozie of a story involving yours truly. Is anyone surprised that I got naked and drunk in college? Anyway, it made me laugh.

I am in love

With goats. Todd makes fun of me, because I just love goats. I mean, first of all, they taste good. Second of all, they keep down weeds. I have loved them since I was a little girl, with their wispy, eccentric-looking beards. Those spindly legs. That funny, angry noise they make. They come in all […]

This Pretty Much Sums It Up

I’m the kind of girl who has a leftover dinner of mac and cheese, okra and blackeyed peas, green beans, one can artichoke hearts, and a glass of Chardonnay. Dessert? One bigass heaping spoon of crunchy peanut butter in a bowl, drizzled with honey and a splash of Kahlua, and a squirt of canned whipped […]

Pooped Out

I am so tired. Todd and I went to the EARL last night after his book club at Flatiron. Anna Kramer opened, and I loved her! Got this video of a new Band of Horses song they say they hadn’t played before. Me likey. Their whole show was really great – I was impressed. I […]

Goat Man Takes New York

Spent the weekend in NYC with Camille. For those of you who know me, you know about me being the Goatman. See the link for info on the real Goat Man. I never actually saw the Goat Man myself, but my Grandma Palmer always told Pop, when he came in the kitchen door with muddy […]
