Mondays are for winners.

I think if I keep repeating this to myself, it shall soon become true. I had an absolutely awesome weekend. My sisters were in town, some friends came to town, we watched a lot of basketball and had about forty people over to the house for BBQ. We saw Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors in

Questions for me.

Sorry I have been bloggy absent. I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed by The Camera Incident of 2011 and the fact that in the last five days I have located TWO GRAY HAIRS on the crown of my head. TWO. Meaning that as of today, I am officially older than I feel, act, or admit. [Kidding.

A big Saturday.

I’m emotional just typing this post. That does not bode well for my speaking engagement this weekend. My eyes are probably going to puddle for my entire 40 minute slot. Let me back up a bit. From 2003-2005, I taught 5th grade in Jackson County. I have never loved sixty small people as much as

Leader’s Guide!

Happy weekend, friends! While I’m not typically a weekend blogger, it is snowing here in Nashville and the idea of exiting my fleece pajamas for any other less snuggly type of clothing seems nightmare-ish. So I shall blog. Which is good. Because I totes forgot to tell you yesterday afternoon when the Leader’s Guide for

11 things for 2011.

1. How much do you love Annie Parsons? I. KNOW. Me too. 2. I leave for Scotland in exactly 2 weeks. People keep asking me if I have a list of what to pack or a long list of things to complete before I go. And I keep saying no. Which is concerning. If other

Just say it.

Well, these last two days have certainly been a whirlwind. Not the scary tornado type, but the awesome warm windy Oz kind. We have no clue how many copies of From Head to Foot have been sold in the first 48 hours, and that doesn’t totally matter. What was awesome was that social media was

Wednesday is a list.

Instead of pictures. Sorry ’bout it. I just have an absolutely insane week and to try to compose anything more than a list would cause my head to explode. Yuck. List. Here we go. 1. CMAs It is a big week in Nashville- CMA Awards and the like. Make sure you watch the awards tonight

Books about writing.

I love to read. You know that by now. But I’m not a picky reader. I love magazines [like Real Simple], our book club books [currently: I Am the Messenger], and teen fiction that I’m probably too old to read but end up absolutely loving [The Hunger Games]. Fiction. Non-fiction. You name it, I’ll read

#thisisawesome & #youguysarefunny

For starters, I have gotten around a gazillion emails in the last 24 hours telling me how funny your comments were yesterday when we learned about/talked about hashtags. Well played, my friends. Well played. I should call on your humor more often because you straight up delivered. I promised a prize. Let me tell you
