wish me luck!

January 14, 2012

I’m headed to Las Vegas for the first time ever! {I know, I know. How is that even possible?!} Even thought that means I have to get on an airplane during the first major snow storm of the season, I’m so excited! – and yay for anxiety meds! But I’ll have a lot going on […]

weekend wrap up.

October 18, 2010

Last week was a stressful week in the It’s A Hero household. It’s amazing what two misbehaving dogs will do to an already jam-packed week.

bloggers, we have a problem.

August 19, 2009

I need an intervention. Without BF to help me decide what to eat (yes, I am often incapable of making minor decisions), I have eaten an assortment of the following: -Fresh veggies. -Fresh fruit. -Hummus. -Guacamole. We’re not just talking a little bit either. I’ll sit down and eat just tons of carrots. No well-rounded […]
