Welcome to my little ol' blog. I'll be upfront about it: I don't blog very often any more. If you found your way here because you read my book "Trailer Life," have a gander! But it's easier to keep up with me on Instagram or on my Facebook page. I have this long, drawn out theory on why I'm a terrible blogger, but that is a story for another day. Enjoy the ramblings of my life from the last 8 years or so.

Help, I need somebody! Help! Not just anybody! Help! You know I need someone, HELLLP! (The Beatles)

1) HOW do I center my header? On my screen it's off to the right, and it totally bugs me. I've Google searched/troubleshooted, but to no avail.
2) Is there a relation between eating chocolate and anger/severe moodiness? Um, no reason. No reason at all, just a hypothetical, "I wonder what would happen if someone ate a good amount of Dove Dark chocolate hearts yesterday, and now today that someone nearly ate her young?"

And, not that I want an answer for this exactly, but why can't someone just predict the weather and be right? Friday Kacy's school got let out early because of a snow storm. There are not enough snow plows for all the miles up here, and since the CalTrans guys have to take furlough days for the state budget, they basically said "Oh, sorry! I'm furloughed today. Good luck with the road conditions!" And I don't blame them one single bit. I'd do the same. I purposefully didn't go to Bakersfield because I didn't want to drive in the snow and/or get stuck down there. And IT DIDN'T SNOW. I could have gone. Play practice got ran a little late though, so I guess it all worked out. I can't wait for spring.


  1. Your header is super cute and on my screen it's centered! :O)

  2. i know some women who claim chocolate makes them crazy.

  3. Chocolate makes me crazy! Especially dark chocolate. I try to avoid eating it, but sometimes that's difficult since I love chocolate. To put it mildly, I get very cranky when I eat the stuff. It took me a long time to figure out the connection between eating chocolate and my bad moods. Not eating it helps me a lot.

  4. WOW I never made the connection between Chocolate and moods but I think you may have something there. Yesterday was a REALLY bad day for us too, and I know a mom who OD'D on her kids valentines treats on Saturday.

  5. Your header is centered on my screen too. That's only going to make you more crazy... figuring out how to fix just yours. We missed you guys yesterday. I saved the kids Valentine stuff for next week so we can prolong the craziness. Now, I'm trying to figure out if I can make it to the temple tomorrow.

  6. Karrie-

    Go into your Edit HTML and in the "Header" section change the margin:5 to margin:0

    If you have trouble just email me your blogger login and password and I'll do it for you.

  7. One more tip for you (because you're anal like me)-

    If you save your cute little "Friends" and "Family" tags as a .png instead of a .jpg they won't have white borders around them (if you created them on a transparent background).

    BTW...your blog looks adorable!

  8. I always think it's the reasons I'm sucking down the chocolate that makes me crazy...but maybe it is just the chocolate. The weather makes me crazy too, especially when I get up and get my kids to school on time only to find a two hour delay has been called...for no reason I can see. And the furloughs... this is your blog and you don't need a super long comment from me but that whole idea makes me nuts. The common theme here seemsto be I really am just crazy!

  9. I love the header! You know I don't need chocolate to make me want to "Eat" my kids!!
