here's the thing...

i am originally from what used to be a small, charming, all-American town in the southern portion of the midwest.

we had down home values and took care of our neighbors.

everyone knew everyone.

grandma used to have a saying...i may not know what you did tonight but before the sun comes up, i will. she was accurate.

if you sneezed it was in the Sentinal. the daily paper.

our town didn't have alot of weath or growth.

we did/do have tradition and legacy.

our legacy revolves around our high school sports, as does our social lives and small talk.

our team is the Orphans.

the name is odd, but comes from back after the great depression when we were poorer than the town is now (which is saying alot). our basketball boys went to state and when they showed up the announcer said 'they look like a bunch of orphans but they sure can play basketball'

and they could. they still can. and there isn't much more than that to our town.

they won state that year. and the Orphan name stuck.

we are currently in a race on USA today for the best high school mascot. We have won state, region, and are now in the finals.

please take a moment to vote. it costs nothing but a couple of minutes of your time.

there are scholarship opportunities for the winners and for many in our town that may be their only way to a higher education.

please follow this link to cast a few votes...

st patrick's day is gone...time to cleanse

Monday, March 18, 2013

so i've been on a bit of a high lately.

got hitched

we honeymooned on a carnial cruise line that didn't break down and was actually quite lovely

got thru the god forsaken name change. there were times when i was sitting in the social security office that i was thinking how his first name combined with my maiden name had a lovely ring to it.

partied in a couple of different countries

partied in a couple of different states

we like to party

ate and drank our way through the carnival season and mardi gras

ran a few times

did a dirty girl mud run with my daughter

did the mcguires 5K with the whole family. all 7 of us

partied after

ate and drank my way thru the past weekend.

it is the weekend of my people and the snake chasing out of ireland.

for that, my blood type might likely be guinness positive

last the guinness, corned beef, and soda bread haze it occurred to me that my body may thank me for a little cleansing.

so i made the cabbage's got a little kick.

tasty and i'm motivated.

my office-mate brought in yummy creamy mac and cheese and pulled pork. now...i'm a southern girl y'all. those are food groups.

i managed to not harm my colleague.

we will call that progress

7 days ...7 days...7 days

we got hitched (w/pix)

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

At midnight on New Years Eve I married my best friend.

i was walked down the aisle by my strikingly handsome son

We were married by an amazing woman with great mojo that just beams from her fingertips.

We were married on our property that we worked for, built on, cultivated, and created with love, sweat, blood, and tears

Our 5 teenaged children stood by us and surrounded us with their love and laughter

our friends and family came from all over the country to share our moment...and the free beer and wine
we had a memorial table to honor those who were watching from the stars

i am indeed a lucky girl

I'm Baaack 2.0

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

the last time i strayed from the spark it was because i was lazy.

this time, i was offended.

i'm back, not because i am 'over it,' but because there are so many of you that are wonderful and frankly i've missed you.

so for those of you who are easily offended when the wind blows the wrong way...probably shouldn't read my stuff.

for those of you who enjoy my version of the world...enjoy my lovelies!!!
