Girls’ Night Out = Wicked Traffic

**This post contains affiliate links. I make a tiny percentage off of purchases made through affiliate links, and it doesn't cost you a penny more. Thanks for helping my blogging business grow! Friday the 13th was the night I got to go with my big girls to see Wicked. At last! Yes, I had seen it just a few weeks before, and I loved it. I was only too excited for my girls to get to enjoy it as well. If you have never heard the music of Wicked, you can buy the CD here on Amazon. It is amazing! When Adam and I went, we had factored in plenty of time to get to Dallas Fair Park Music Hall. We arrived a little over an hour before the show, and enjoyed a leisurely dinner while waiting for the … [Read more...]

Confession: I have a natural uni-brow. … [Read more...]

Sleep is overrated…

... said no parent, ever. Confession: I haven’t had consistent, uninterrupted sleep in years. Some would say since they became a parent, but it’s not quite that bad for me. My girls were better sleepers than the boys. At a year old, all of the boys were still waking up at least once a night. Even now, Lloyd is three and still wakes up more nights than not to come (try) to sleep in my bed. Last night was an extreme when it comes to fractured sleep. … [Read more...]
