Scooby Doob-alicious

The PCP is just ga-ga over Scooby Doo.  And it’s rubbing off on Cookie too.  So, when I broke the bad no-baseball news due to fourteen stitches the other day, his eyes lit up and and he broke out in the biggest grin… “Does that mean I’ll be home for Scooby Doo Mystery Inc. at seven-thirty, eight-thirty central?”

It did, in fact, mean that he’d be home to watch the much anticipated season premiere.  And we celebrated in style over a Scooby bone pizza, salad, Scooby yogurt and mini-banana puddings topped with Scooby Snacks.


For the pizza, I start with the seven grain dough from the Publix bakery, roll it out and then shape it into a bone. Top with sauce and cheese and then spell out Scooby in turkey pepperoni.  This wasn’t the first time I’ve made Scooby pizza, and likely won’t be the last.

It was just what the doctor ordered for our little injured angel, and when he proclaimed it Scooby Doob-alicious I was secretly glad to have traded in baseball for a family pizza and t.v. night.

The doctor glued the wound shut after removing the stitches yesterday and all we have to do now is keep him from knocking it before it can completely heal.  Easier said than done, I’m afraid!

Just Like Her

I sit here, my sixth time being celebrated as a mother, and cannot help but reflect on my own mother and all that she’s done for me, taught me, showed me and sacrificed for me.  She’s kind, beautiful, driven, creative, smart, stylish, so-Southern and, most of all, loves her girls with all her being.  And… Read More

Zac Brown Band

Decked out in pink cowboy boots and jeans that fit just right, we spent the evening standing in our seats, singing at the top of our lungs, sometimes screaming like teenagers, and just overall immensely enjoying the fantastic tunes and incredible live show of the Southern grown Zac Brown Band.  With the top down on… Read More

I met the brain behind the operation, Jody of Jody Lynn Photography, in a chat room back when I was pregnant with… Read More

While our Cinco de Mayo celebrations have certainly tamed down since the college bestie C’s birthday combo Rio Grande days of yore (remember that, gals?), we still make a point to always enjoy a little Mexican fare every May fifth.  And we definitely wash it down with a ‘gita or three. After Tuesday’s escapades, today… Read More

When It Rains It Pours

It started at the dentist office having two cavities filled. I brush, floss, use a rinse and get them cleaned every six months.  Religiously.  Yet, I seriously must have the worst teeth on the planet.  And I’d rather go to any other doctor for any other reason than to see the dentist. Back home, I… Read More
