The Halloween I Almost Shot Someone {#FTSF}

Halloween began just like most others. I had class and I still haven’t determined what I was going to wear that night. Two major differences were that I was going to the party with “someone” and, well, I was going to a Halloween party. I didn’t often do that when I was younger, including college. As...

To Reveal or Not Reveal

Parenting is hard work. As a parent or guardian, you’re always concerned whether your child is getting along well in school, hitting the right milestones on time and progressing with their age group. Sometimes, that window could be years. So, you let it go and determine that your child is just on the later end of...

The World Around Me {#FTSF}

I open my garage door to a quiet cul-de-sac. I catch a glimpse of a car passing by the adjoining street, but otherwise don’t hear anything. My daughter is screaming out Almost There at the top of her lungs… and since I’m the good SAHM, I’m belting out the lyrics too. I tend to think...

The Wonder of the End of Summer {FTSF}

The alarm goes off and I slowly roll over to press snooze… only to realize, I can just turn it off. Both girls are sleeping soundly and I am warm and snuggly. This is the first time that the end of summer does not affect my mornings. Bee and Butterfly sleep comfortably while Bunny gets ready...

A Broken Heart {#FTSF}

We all have amazing bodies… I can tell you about giving birth to four children, losing and gaining weight, withstanding sports injuries, and even the fact that most of my scars are barely visible. But I’m not. Today, I’m going to share a story of one beautiful child’s body. This story of a newborn… His mom’s...

“We Make a Great Team Together” with Link up!

Summer has officially started in the 100lb Countdown household. Bunny has successfully completed 4th grade and I can finally breathe a sigh of relief for a more relaxed schedule. Overall, he has done well in school… and the struggles are for another post. He has asked consistently since my mother moved to South Carolina seven...

The Best Workout Ever!

My love for volleyball deserves a poem… but I’m not going to torture you this week with one of my lame ones. I even tried looking for a good one for you online, but they were incredibly lame. I love playing volleyball. I was in the best shape of my life. It is the BEST...

A Place to Lay My Head ~ #FTSF

Once upon a time there was a young girl, one who diligently worked for and with her family. Despite their modest means and her efforts, the king banished them to another land. This made work difficult and education nearly impossible for the young teen. Yet she was determined. Her education was nearly completed; college but...

And the big deal is? #FTSF

I never understood what the big deal was about… Well, my first answer was actually last week’s prompt… CONCERTS. But I don’t want to do a repeat, so I’ll come up with a new answer. I don’t see the big deal about going to opening day at the movies. Every Monday, we hear the box...

Am I Really a Grownup? {#FTSF}

I wake up, get dressed, get my kids dressed, run my son to school, run errands and whatever else I need to do. Besides tossing in the kids, it doesn’t seem much different from when I was at home. When do you start to FEEL like a grownup? Let me think about what’s different now:...

Shhh…I Have a Secret Talent {with #FTSF}

And its keeping a secret. I hope that’s a talent! I sit down for a lecture. I’m a little early. Rare for me, so I start doodling in my notebook. Since I can’t draw worth a darn, I start humming to myself. There’s only one other person in the lecture and I don’t think they’d...
