Mockingbird, DO!: A Holiday Giveaway
So, I may have mentioned this one or twenty times, but the people I have met through this glorious blogging adventure are one of the big reasons why I continually log in and keep banging out these posts. Depending on how you feel about me, this may be a good thing or a bad thing. […]
This Post Is Just So Middle School
This week for Remember the Time, tell us about a rivalry you’ve fostered. Sibling, cousin, friend, or even team, what is something that made you compete? Just make sure that you are pulling from events that happened in your past rather than something that happened, oh, I dunno, last week. Just a friendly reminder that […]

I love my peeps.
I think I’ve told you a time or five that I have the best besfrinn in the whole entire world. And I wasn’t just jiving you. I really do. She lives on the opposite coast from me, but she knows the ins and outs of my days and actually apologizes when she misses my unannounced […]

Don’t go to a huge blogging convention. I’ll come to you!
I mentioned in my last full-length post how the frosting on the cake for our famvay* was meeting a couple bloggers. I met T whose current blogging project is The Ten Things Blog and Heather from Becoming Cliché, and both meetings were the puppies and rainbows and snowfall on Christmas that you’d expect. *That’s Pinterest-speak […]
Finding Your People
I have always liked thinking about the relative simplicity of early humans.

Let’s all hold hands and sing Kumbaya.
This is the post where I bask in the glory of the Internet and its ability to transmit all the says I say around the globe. Remember awhile ago when I begged you to further inflate my oft-pregnant ego and “like” the page on Facebook? Remember how you thought to yourself, “Wow, I never thought […]
