Nothing good ever happens after midnight

My mom used to say that all the time. I completely disagree. In fact, plenty of good happens after midnight: – The best parties don’t even start until then. – The likelihood you’ll get dinner and a show at an all-night diner certainly increases (I’m thinking of a specific instance that involved Waffle House and someone…

MAC Cosmetics. Salon East 316. A girl’s dream day.

I have a confession to make. I’ve pretty much been using the same makeup brands for as long as … well, for as long as I’ve been wearing makeup. I was hanging out with Amy one day and she commented that every time she smells Cover Girl powder she thinks of me since that’s what I…

Make sure you have coffee for this one.

  She bared her soul, y’all, and she’s doing it for the world to read. How did I feel when my best friend since we were 8 years old told me she’d had an emotional affair? Surprised? Of course. She’s never in our whole lives been one to break the rules. In fact, I’ll admit that when…

Tomorrow is big, you guys

I’ve been too quiet here lately, but it’s for a good reason. I’ve been helping Amy publish her very first book.

Sometimes, adventure is loss

When I was 15, I went on my first adventure. It wasn’t by choice. I grew up in Fort Mill, SC, a small town where everyone knew each other. My friends were mostly friends I’d had since childhood, and there was a certain security about knowing that my closest allies were always just a phone…

Weddings, babies, surgeries, life …

So, you wouldn’t know it by reading this blog, but other things have been going on besides the fact that I fell on my face and have spent the past few weeks recovering. Who knew?? So, in a nutshell, here’s some other things that have been going on: = My brother had back surgery. You…

At least I don’t faint from having sex …

Ok, so where were we … sorry I keep getting tired and unable to finish my story! I told you about fainting, and I showed you my awful face, and I told you about how wonderful CMC Mercy is. So, silly me thought I’d just be at CMC Mercy for a few hours while they…

Why I love the hospital

So, I stopped talking yesterday during the second ambulance ride, this one to CMC Mercy. I was alone during this ride. Colleen and Jim had driven the Jeep to CMC University the night before, so Jeff drove that one. I’d been in the ER from around 9 p.m. to around 8 a.m., and neither of…
