Walle

I love underdog stories so it shouldn't come as a surprise that I look forward to seeing who the winner of the World's Ugliest Dog contest is each year. The winners tend to be of the Chinese Crested/Chihuahua variety. I don't care what breed wins, I always find them to be adorable. But this year's… Continue reading Walle

Insert Evil Laugh

Almost six years into motherhood and I am still learning the ropes. I take it one day at a time and when the kids are finally asleep for the day I can collapse on the couch and truly relax.

Throw in McConaughey and Hill (first names aren't necessary, dontcha' know?), 90s excess, some hot blondes, a dark sense of humor, and I AM THERE. Yes, it looks like Wall Street… Continue reading MTM: The Wolf of Wall Street

Monster Mama

This book caught my eye on a recent outing to the library with the kiddos. They wanted nothing to do with it but I couldn't leave its side.  Mama and her boy in the top right corner look as if they are dreams and nightmares, coexisting as one. It reminded me of a  Guillermo del Toro… Continue reading Monster Mama
