My kid has pinkeye.

And, like, I knew it was coming when he came home from school on Monday and said, “So-and-so has a pink eye!” Because once one 5 year old has pinkeye, all the 5 year olds are going to have pinkeye.

BUT STILL. Pinkeye is the worst.

And, of course, as soon as I realized he had it, my eye started itching and then I sneezed and realized that it’s just because I had all the windows open and am allergic to everything outside. #blessed

So, yeah,  I’ve banned him from going anywhere near his brothers so that maybe we can avoid spreading it to everyone.

Also? Nothing is more frustrating than trying to put drops in a 5 year old’s eyes.

Y’all. Just don’t send your kids to school when they have pinkeye.

Homemade Orange Sherbet - you will never want store-bought orange sherbet again after trying this recipe! So simple and so delicious!

Hey, y’all!

Do you guys remember the Flintstones Push Pops?

I just had to google them to make sure I didn’t make them up. But I have these weird memories that only kind of make sense of staying with my kindergarten teacher in the summers (she had a pool!) and we’d walk to the gas station close to her house for a treat on Fridays and I’d always go for the Flintstones Push Pops.

Or candy cigarettes. The 90’s were weird, man.

Do you have memories like that? Where you wonder if you made it all up? I was so young but I have all sorts of fuzzy memories like sitting in her kitchen and listening to the rain on their tin roof while she made fried chicken.

Heeeeey guys, happy Friday!

Is everyone as excited as I am that the week is over? The kids are out of school today so I probably won’t leave my house at all. I may not leave my bedroom.

I may watch The Great British Baking Show in bed all day.

I have had a week.

A. Week.

I would like to never think about this week again, mmkay?

So I made cocktails. A beer cocktail! How weird, right?

I’ve maintained that I hate beer for all 29 years of my life (no one fact check that number thanks) but I’m, like, really obsessed right now. Sorry to all the guys I’ve dated that I made fun of for “being really into craft beer”. I get it now, guys. I get it.

Peanut Butter Pretzel Brownies - the perfect recipe for sweet and salty brownies!

Hi guys!

Can I complain about the weather?

I know, totally shocking that I’m not satisfied with the weather in Texas, right?

But y’all, all of Fort Hood has been flooded this week and it’s ruining my life. It took me an hour to find my way home the other night because all the roads to my neighborhood had rivers flowing over them or were already blocked by cops. And it was midnight and my poor babysitter was stuck at my house and all I wanted to do was eat nachos in bed while rewatching last week’s Survivor.

Ugh, Texas. Whyyyyy?!
