The Friday 5+

Skol! The Vikings win against the New Orleans Saints last Sunday is still being talked about. Minnesota doesn’t have a great playoff record so the fact they won in such a spectacular fashion didn’t go unnoticed. I actually turned the channel right before the game winning play. I thought ‘this is so like the Vikings.’ […]

It’s a brand new year but what if I liked the old one?!

Happy 2018. It’s a brand new year but what if I liked the old one?! Sometimes it’s hard to say goodbye. That’s where I’m at right now. I’m still holding on to 2017. A lot of crappy things happened in 2017. We elected Donald Trump, a man that takes to Twitter to talk trash people […]

Perks of Being Ordained

I am an ordained minister. Say what?! I bet you didn’t know that about me. Today I’m going to share some of the perks of being ordained. But first, let’s talk about how I got there. Several years ago on a Sunday morning, I was unmotivated to get out of bed and go to church.  […]

New Do and Weird Rules. Wait What?!

If you ask me what my strength is I’d say my flexibly. Not the stretchy, bendy type of flexibility. But the kind where you go with the flow. I can adapt with a new situation and go with the flow. I don’t always love change but I will definitely handle it in stride. If you […]

One Grey’s at a Time

I’ve known my friend Jody since 6th grade. For almost as long as we’ve known each other she’s been trying to get me to watch Grey’s Anatomy. I’ve always told her I would but still haven’t. We go round and round with this. This weekend our husbands were out of town for work so we were […]

My Sock Game is Strong

Oh the Food You’ll Eat at the MN State Fair

The Minnesota State Fair is a week away. One. Week. Away. While I hate that it signals the end of summer, I love the fair. If I could Ground Hog Day one day, it would have to be the first day of the fair. Everything is still super clean. You’re not walking over trampled corn […]
