November Instagram Update

Yep. It’s December. Well, tomorrow it will be.  Thanksgiving is over, so I can officially full on celebrate the Holiday season.  All you whiners no longer have any room to complain about me rushing the season.  We’ve got the inside and most of the outside of the house decorated and my countdown is on.  I’m […]

Heroes Behind the Badge

I’ve written about Law Enforcement a couple times on the blog, most notably here, about Scotty Richardson, and here, about my husband.  One of Mike’s friends and coworkers created an event on Facebook for a documentary viewing in January here in Aiken. Disclaimer: most of this information is stolen verbatim from their website.  The documentary is […]

Our House: Vol 20

Well, the master bathroom overhaul is officially complete.  Aside from some re-organization and final decorative touches, we’re all done with the house…for now.  The bathroom ended up taking about a full month to complete.  We started with a blank slate and the final product is more than I could have ever imagined. Here’s what we […]

The Sleep Study Conspiracy

This post was contributed by my fabulous mother, Pat Rice!  This is Anna’s mom and I snore. Loudly. As in roof rattling, clear the room, wake the dead loudly.  Or so I’ve been told.  I happened to mention this to my family practice doctor during my recent physical and the next thing I knew, I […]

Our House: Vol XIX (19)

So half of the renovation project is essentially finished.  We put a bow on the guest room last week and I was so excited to move the furniture back in and get everything put together. During the construction process, we’d moved the bed (mattress, box spring, head board, foot board), desk, and some other miscellaneous […]

Loving Football

I feel I should preface this post with, no, I am not pregnant. I’m not sure if there is some natural progression of hormonal overhaul that happens when you reach your mid-twenties, but even on days when my feelings ought to be in-check, I find myself fighting back tears over things that generally should not […]

Mean Girls

I see so much bullying on Facebook, and usually from people who try very hard to appear confident and mature.  It is disheartening.  What is the point of being mean to people?  I know sometimes everyone loses their temper or says things they regret, but 10 young adults ganging up on one person via Facebook […]
