#BloomWhereYourePlanted / Family / Kansas City

I find that when you can’t overcome or prevent something, it’s best to just give yourself over to it fully. We woke up this morning to snow that was just beginning to fall. Over three hours, we accumulated about seven inches and it’s still falling. The gnomes were not impressed. Neither was the dog. At first the kid was less than thrilled. But wait, this is kind of cool. Nah, Daddy, I got it. Ok, […]

#BloomWhereYourePlanted / #iPPP / Kansas City

I wrote this morning on Twitter that I no longer feel human. That I feel like an incubator glued to a couch being fed Cheez Its as fuel. I think that accurately sums up the last month of pregnancy. It’s just not fun. Your brain stops working, everything is beginning to swell and hurt and your uterus thinks it’s fun to randomly contract here and there. Because of the excruciating heartburn, there are like six […]

#BloomWhereYourePlanted / Kansas City

I’m from Texas. Part of my heart will always belong to the Lone Star State. But I have a confession. I’ve been having an affair with Kansas City, and it might be getting serious. I’ve written before of my love/hate relationship with the place I’ve called home for going on four years. There’s plenty to do, but the weather aggravates me. The Kansas Prairie has given me a best friend whom I love like a […]

#BloomWhereYourePlanted / Friends / Monkey

In nine days my son will turn two and like all other parents I’m left scratching my head and wondering where that time went. I brought home a little squeaky thing in the summer of 2010 and I’ve watched him grow into a great kid. He loves his friends and family. He’s affectionate and silly. He enjoys conversation, food and playing – all with contagious gusto. To celebrate the two years we’ve spent loving him, […]

#BloomWhereYourePlanted / Friends / Monkey / Really long posts

On Tuesday I’ll be 33. According to some think tank in the UK, that’s the age most people report to have been the happiest. I certainly plan on doing my best to support that position with the help of some silly, smart, spectacular people in my life. Several of those people accompanied me to the Omaha Zoo on Saturday, a trip that’s been on my “Midwestern Bucket List” for some time. The zoos of today […]

#BloomWhereYourePlanted / Friends / How was YOUR day? / Noms

I want to tell you about that time that I purposefully placed turkey cold cuts on my face. That time was yesterday. It started out as a great day. I kissed my boys goodbye that morning and headed to meet my friend Greta for lunch and girl time. I enjoyed a fruity Blue Moon and a spicy Red Dragon roll while GFunk and I chatted about family and future plans. She gave me my birthday […]

Why don’t you just go fly a kite

I have a love/hate relationship with Kansas City, my home since winter of 2008. The weather is insane, hate. The crime rate is really high, hate. The sports teams are ALLCAPSAWFUL, hate. But the BBQ is heavenly, love. The highways make it a dream to get around, love. And there is so much to do here. LOVE. This morning we woke up with no direction. We ate breakfast, sat around in our pajamas with SportsCenter […]
