Oh how time flies when you’re having fun, working, chasing kids…just plain living! It has been a while I know and I apologize. We have some fun times to catch up on here soon such as my trip to Big Harvest Potluck, Surferboy’s endless travels and Patch’s first Homecoming but until I catch my breath how about we share one of my favorite quick and easy meals. Best of all it fits in perfectly with National Pasta Month, which happens to be in October who knew!  [click to continue…]

It has been one heck of a week. One where you wake up in the morning with burning ribbons slicing trails of pain behind your left shoulder blade.

Being 41 is FUN! Ya know, in case y’all were wondering, are slightly apprehensive or just plain curious about middle age. Honestly my 40′s far surpass my 20′s. Some say, “Age is just a number” or “Embrace your age”, and they are right. Personally though I never think about age at all. A simpler motto, […]

If you’ve been grilling nearly everyday this summer raise your hand (raising both my hands as swim team grill mom)! Typically I’m grilling burgers and dogs at the pool which is easy but at home its either Surferboy or my dad behind the grill. Those guys have the flame 2 meat ratio down to a […]

Early mornings watching the boys through drowsy eyes, obligatory coffee in hand, as they somehow lap mile upon mile in the pool have come and gone. Only one more pool party scheduled before the grill sits cold for another year at the clubhouse. All of my summer camp hauls are at an end. In fact, […]

One of the drawbacks of being a traveling surf coach is missing family events. It is inevitable when your work takes you on the road. Unfortunately, for the past 6 years poor Surferboy’s schedule has conflicted with the three biggest moments where as a family we would celebrate him…Father’s Day, our wedding anniversary and his […]

Easy Marinara Sauce

January 7, 2014

Which one of you broke national the heater? Someone did because we’re all shivering in our Uggs. I don’t know about y’all but I’m not built for this cold weather. The boys are spot on when the say, “If it’s this cold there should at least be snow.” On the bright side fluffy sweaters and […]
