I’m going to admit it: I like to eat toast for breakfast. I know I’m suppose to be anti-carbs and super clean with my eating, but if I happen to be home, my favorite breakfast to make is two eggs, toast, bacon, and a mocha. I love it–simple to make and super tasty to eat. […]
I was sitting in the waiting room of the dentist’s office today. Across from me, a boy probably about 4 or 5 played with his action figures. He had one of the characters help someone. His mom quickly told him, “He can’t be a hero–he’s the bad guy.” I thought about saying something, and I’m […]

What do you ask the man in the mirror? It’s something I’ve thought about ever since I first heard Michael Jackson’s popular song, Man in the Mirror. The chorus lyrics couldn’t be any clearer: I‘m Starting With The Man In The Mirror I’m Asking Him To Change His Ways And No Message Could Have Been […]
Please forgive me for two back to back posts on a similar topic. I was so fascinated by the previous DID YOU KNOW video that I ended up reading a bunch of articles about it. Turns out the whole thing began with a math teacher in Colorado. The most recent video video debuted just a […]
After hearing some positive recommendations from friends, I started catching up on the show How I Met Your Mother during my travels. Just the other day, I watched an episode from season 3 entitled No Tomorrow in which the main character, Ted, meets his friend Barney at a bar on St. Patrick’s Day and vows […]
