Cinco de Mayo like a Mom

It’s a day more celebrated in America than in its own country of origin and for good reason…TACOS.    Cinco de Mayo, which occurs on the 5th day of May, commemorates Mexico’s unlikely victory over France in the 1862 Franco-Mexican war but is primarily observed in the state of Puebla where the battle was fought.  […]

How to Survive Football Season When You’re Not a Fan

I don’t like football. There, I said it.  I’m a southern girl, married to a southern boy, and I have absolutely no interest in watching football. Not college, not pro, not even pee-wee.  I just don’t get it… the downs, the flags, the yards, and don’t even get me started on that yellow line that you […]
