Hamburger vs Spaghetti

My apologies to all of my MALE readers…this post is technically NOT about hamburgers and spaghetti; although both foods are used as visuals later on… Well, August is National Breast Feeding Month.  Did you know that?  It seems that I am full of interesting tidbits of information as of late.  However, this particular topic struck a chord with me. You see, I nursed all three of my children.  Relax, I am […]

But You Don’t Have A Job

Settle in…I got a little long-winded today! So, yesterday was a SUPER busy day in the Louis household.  School is getting ready to start (Moms everywhere said, AMEN)…my husband was preoccupied mourning the loss of his beloved iPhone (apparently even cell phones have mother boards)…and speaking of MOTHERS, my primary source of distraction for the day took the form of my own mother, who was set to arrive at an […]

Sons and Daughters Day

So last week I stirred up a firestorm of activity about going to the grocery store…who knew some of y’all were so passionate about your peaches?!  I must say, it was interesting to hear from so many of you.  If you will remember, I made reference to the Farmer’s Almanac, a nifty little (big) book in which you can find all sorts of tidbits having to do with days that […]

The Back to School Meltdown…

So a couple of days ago, I braved the malls of Houston during our annual tax-free-back-to-school shopping weekend.  For those of you who know me, y’all understand this was a HUGE undertaking. I hate to shop. I go against every single stereo-type of my sex when it comes to shopping.  The very thought of weeding through rack after rack of articles of clothes makes every fiber of my body rebel.  […]

Honestly, How LAZY Are We?

Does anyone remember the Farmer’s Almanac?  My grandfather always had a copy of the Almanac laying around the house.  Tucked away inside its pages were weather patterns, annual holidays, and helpful tips about how to live a healthy lifestyle…get this…off the land. What?! My grandparents are both gone.  All I have left are memories, and those memories are awesome.  I remember Papa planting a garden out in the pasture, and […]

Confessions of a Terrible Stay Home Mom, Vol. 3

Tomorrow I will have a FIFTEEN-YEAR-OLD.  Gasp.Choke.Cough.Gag.  I cannot believe my oldest child is turning fifteen.  Where did the time go?  Honestly it really does seem like yesterday that I was freaking out about having to deliver my first baby…now I’m freaking out about taking my first-born to get his learner’s permit.  Y’all, that means he’s going to soon be on the road with the rest of us…be afraid, be […]

An Open Letter to my Husband

So, I’ve been seeing these Marriage Challenges on the Facebook lately…people posting pictures for x-amount of days to boost other people’s interest in their own marriages, and that’s all fine and good.  You should boost morale within your marriage.  Go Team You.  But, the first thing I thought of when I saw the very first of those challenges come across my feed was a chain letter from seventh grade…way back […]
