Blame it on the a-a-a-a-alcohol.

My inconsistent writing, I mean. No, not really. When your total alcohol consumption in the last two months is one margarita, one glass of wine and one mixed drink {none, by the way, did I finish}, I don’t think blaming it on the alcohol is legit.

I suppose I could blame it on the half-marathon training but my husband isn’t buying that excuse anymore {What? I can’t milk another week of post-race handing off of chores?}.

I could blame it on lack of interesting blog fodder which would be so true except that I really do need to take the time to post about all the interesting things I saw for sale at Walmart the other night.

There were many. Cell phone pics to come.

I don’t know where the blame lies but I do know it’s 11:56 p.m. and I need to go to bed. But not before I tell you a few important things.

First, and most important, I am spending the weekend with my four best girlfriends celebrating the 10th anniversary of The E-Ranch. There will be wine, there will be manicures, there will be PW’s cinnamon rolls. There will also be cringing as we watch video of ourselves from ten years ago. In other words, IT WILL BE AWESOME.

Also, we need a new pic of the four of us because I’m pretty sure this is the first time in three years that we’ve all gotten together and none of us are pregnant. Truly, the wine will flow.


You want to know what can make me grin so big after running thirteen miles? My hunky husband. That is the reason for a smile this big. And after all, every good southern drama queen needs her own personal paparazzi.

we are dorks

Look, my sister and I have been dorks from the time we were little. It’s just always going to be that way.

mom and me

My Marmee is the best. You should know that.


This is currently my favorite student. No, she’s not passionately singing. She was praying at the start of our chapel and totally struck that pose. Why is she my favorite? Because she could talk the hind leg off a mule and I can relate to that quality in a girl. I’m just sayin.

It also doesn’t hurt that she compliments something I wear every dang day. Every day. Even if it’s just my socks. Talk about boosting a girl’s self-esteem!


Ok, that’s all I got. Next week is my spring break so I really have no excuse for writing. Y’all hold me to it, m’kay?

Cheesing it up like it’s my job,

Your SDQ

dork me


  1. Please tell me that furry, short legged dog also ran the marathon :)

  2. qualities include: 'talk a hind leg off a mule' should totally go on a resume! namely, yours. :)

  3. I am so thrilled to be back reading your blog. When you went private, somehow I did not get hooked back up with your blog. My oversight, probably. I'm glad I was able to get back up with you. Hope you are enjoying your spring break. Happy Easter! Love & blessings from NC!

  4. i just really adore you.
