BLOG: Why Does Kate Look So GREAT? Here’s a SECRET About Birthing Babies

People were shocked when the Duchess of Cambridge emerged from the hospital this weekend, just hours after giving birth to the new princess.

“How does she look so FRESH? So BEAUTIFUL,” they asked. “Didn’t the baby she’s cradling just come bursting from her nether region like an angry alien? Shouldn’t she be lying in a heap and apologizing to Prince William for all the horrible, mid-labor names she called him? WHY DOES SHE LOOK SO GOOD?”

Well, I’m going to let you in on a little secret. Continue reading →

Mommy-Movie-Review “Avengers: Age of Ultron” (But Can My KID Watch It?)

New in theaters this week is the highly anticipated sequel, Avengers: Age of Ultron. If your family is like mine, this movie and whether or not my kids can see it has been a constant topic of discussion. Fortunately, I already saw the film so I can give you the low-down. Continue reading →

BLOG: Happy First Communion, Tattoo! Where’s Your Pretty Veil?

My youngest daughter is celebrating her First Communion this weekend and she is profoundly apathetic about it. It’s not that Lucy doesn’t appreciate wine and snacks during church. Believe me, she does. She just doesn’t quite grasp the magnitude of the occasion. I blame the veil for this.

See, I had MY First Communion in a Catholic Church where you get to wear a tiny version of a bridal veil. I was going to wear my sister’s, which had been hanging from her dresser mirror just out of my reach, for most of my life. I gazed at that veil everyday and imagined the moment I finally got to wear it. Oh, how lovely I would be! Continue reading →

PODCAST: I Drove ALL THE WAY to Plano for the “Zazza Mornings” Podcast!

I went to see Tony Zazza because he SAID he wanted to talk about the Avengers: Age of Ultron. HE LIED! Evidently, Tony had a “bone to pick” with me and boy, did he ever! I thought he might jump across the desk & stab me with a Sharpie at one point. Click HERE and go to Podcast #24 to hear what happened but WATCH OUT for that Tony Zazza. You wouldn’t like him when he’s angry!

BLOG: Are YOU My Mentor?

People think I’m kidding when I say it but I learned things while chaperoning Catholic School Camp last week. In fact, there’s one lesson in particular that I can’t stop thinking about.

We were praying of course (because it’s Catholic School Camp and that’s what you DO) and the Camp Couselors told us to pray for our Mentors.

“I don’t have any MENTORS,” I thought. “I’ve been doing all this stuff by MYSELF.” Continue reading →

PODCAST: Boozy Movies Reviews “Avengers: Age of Ultron”

I didn’t like superhero movies in 2012, when I went to see the first Avengers. I remember looking at my movie-buddy Rebekah Black and saying, “This is gonna suck.”

What can I say? Sometimes I’m really REALLY wrong.

We were BEYOND pumped about this new treat from Joss Whedon but also a little scared. Would it compare to the first? Would it suck so bad that we’d stop liking the Avengers altogether? What if it was so awful that even THOR lost his sex-appeal. Yeah, that’s not gonna happen but listen to the podcast to hear our thoughts.

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Hot Pursuit” On Me!

Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara have a new movie coming out called Hot Pursuit. It’s about a straight-laced cop who has to protect a sexy widow from the mafia, so it’s pretty easy to guess which actress plays which character. Witherspoon and Vergara supposedly became besties while filming this movie so I think they need one of those combination names, like Brangelina. I’m going with Rofia Witherboobs.

I have passes to a screening of Hot Pursuit next week, so click the link below if you’d like to go. It’s Wednesday night (5/6) at the AMC Northpark, which is one of my favorite theaters because they have a bar. I’ll probably be at this one too so smile & wave if you see me, but don’t ask about the flask in my purse. Sorry but those drinks get PRICEY!

BLOG: Welcome Home (Please Don’t Break Anything)

We got the keys to our new house yesterday. We’re having some work done on it and the actual move-in date is weeks away but we had a celebratory toast in the empty kitchen last night. I still can’t believe it’s really happening.

See, we put our old house on the market a year ago but honestly, this move has been in the works for 7 years. We never intended to stay in Texas and discussed moving to Chicago, Atlanta, and even Denver a few times. The Chicago move almost happened but every time we got close to pulling the trigger, we chickened out. Continue reading →

BLOG: Camp Tales, or Lack Thereof

I chaperoned my daughter’s Catholic School Camp Trip last week and hoped I’d come home with loads of stories to tell. What I returned with instead are stories I CAN’T tell because they involve kids or parents who might be angry with me for doing so. This is tearing me apart because I have tales of moms who escaped to a crawfish shack & the nicknames they made up for their favorite counselors. I have tales of little boys who pined for little girls and of one chaperone who now needs surgery from a playground game. I have stories of poker games, fish hooks & early morning vomit that are AWESOME and of children who talked, walked & even screamed in their sleep. Continue reading →
