Big “Do” ings

small bee hunnedo

I’ve been busy…really busy. While I’ve been busy taking on the vendor sales world, dabbling in waiting tables, and, as always, being Mommy; I’m still working on my internet project empire.

Okay, I’m not really working that much on the website.

Fortunately, my brilliant daughter Sara has stepped in using her super-power of web-design and innovation. Hunnedo.com has taken on a new look and feel. While many of the original elements remain, Sara has pushed it to the next level.

I am very pleased and excited to see this new trajectory, I hope you will too!


Five Photos, Five Stories: Story One, North Dakota Bound

Ritu from But I Smile Anyway invited me to participate in this challenge.

Five Photos, Five Stories. It sure makes thinking up content a little easier, at least for my next five posts. Like most challenges, it isn’t without rules, or better said, a loose set of guidelines.

The Rules (which are made to be broken, or bent, or adhered to)

  • Post a photo each day for five consecutive days
  • Attach a story to the photo.  It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or simply a short paragraph – it’s entirely up to you.
  • At the end of each day, nominate one other blogger to take part

For my Day one nomination, I’m going to nominate the latest blog that I’ve followed, so I’m calling out Queen Aej from Conquering My Own Castle.

Photo One: This is my son and I a few years ago hanging out at Walmart. This wasn’t just any old shopping trip. We were outfitting my husband for his new job in the oilfield. Continue reading

Tell me what it’s like to be 50

Lately, I’ve been reading articles about how to be a middle aged woman (assuming I live to 100). Technically, I fall at the tail end of the Baby Boom generation. You know… the extremely large group of people who are retired or getting ready to?! It seems that being a part of a huge demographic has it perks. Endless AARP invitations (with a free travel bag!), and adult children who are doing “rock, paper, scissors” to see who loses wins the “taking care of Mom lottery” and a whole lot of people aging right along side of you.

Motown Sunday

Rainy Sunday of eating BLTs and enjoying a little Micheal. Time for my six year old Blondie to learn the classics.

Saturday Night’s Funky All Skate

After a long, tough day of festivals, and Southern BBQ, beer and some of the best company. I’m going to throw out one of my favorites before calling it a day.

Comfort Food for my mind

Can you guess what I’m doing today?

It’s grey, overcast and generally bland outside. My youngest girl is on spring break from college and aside from this blog and general housework (pffffft) I’ve nothing going on until the bus comes by this afternoon bringing my little blonde hurricane boy. Girl time. Continue reading

Taco Tuesday

My husband and I met on Dollar Taco Tuesday. Now, thanks to our six year old son and the Lego Movie, we are welcoming the return of Taco Tuesday into our lives. Although, I just got back from the grocery with a bill of $30, so they cost considerably more than a dollar each to make. But you can’t argue with quality tacos I suppose. Continue reading
