Found these gems on a trip to Gatlinburg in 2006. Personally, I think they are tacky at best and sacrilegious at worst. Baby Jesus as a marshmallow! I mean, Come on (said in my best Seinfeld voice). Whatever your opinion of them I think they are blog worthy even if it’s just for the jaw […]

Love/hate describes my relationship with running. On one hand, I despise exercise of any kind. Instead, give me a book, some crochet hooks, a computer and leave me be! On the other hand, I love the energy and endorphins that come with getting my blood pumping and running is the best way for me to […]

What was for dinner last night? Pepper Jack Mac! So it’s not the healthiest thing in the world, but it sure is cheap, easy, and tasty. Hubs compliments me every time I serve it. Considering I get little more than a “meh” over more expensive and labor intensive-dishes, guess what I’ll be making more of? […]
