  1. I’m an eastern NC bbq girl. Grew up there and now live in Asheville. Eastern is chopped vinegar based and Western is pulled pork tomato based.
  2. I totally get that sentiment but at the same time..... I have three kids and feel awful when I neglect one kids needs over another’s. Imagine having 19. For Ma and Pa Duggar it was only about the number for them not the well-being. If they had a manageable number of children they might not even be dealing with this right now. No one will ever convince me they had that many kids because they love children. They had them to prove some weird point to “god”. Kids well-being be damned. Now they are all paying the price.
  3. Thought this episodes was better than the last episode with the Cocoa Mark (or whatever his name was) storyline. I really love the kid with the two moms and his retelling of the movie experience.. “remember when we were both reaching for popcorn and our hands touched...” Our entire family was laughing the entire sleepover. Love that Koob is coming out of his shell now and the Duck girl gets to actually join the team. I liked the moms challenge but was hoping to see the kids on the ice only because we have to wake up at an ungodly 7am tomorrow to start hockey games that will run from 9-1 (
  4. I guess I’ll go first 🙂 Watched this with my three kids tonight. I turned it on for them expecting to watch something else on my own tv but ended up getting sucked in. So for that I have to give it two thumbs up. We don’t watch pretty much anything as a family anymore because my kids would rather be on YouTube or playing video games. I grew up watching the Mighty Ducks movies and loved them. Our kids started watching them about 4 years ago and loved them as well. All but my daughter who just turned 5 play in-line hockey locally. Our closest ice rink is an hour and a half
  5. Just have to say I loved Sophie the Giraffe making an appearance! All three of my kids had one and whenever someone I know is having a baby I gift them one as well. I actually had a Sophie randomly make an appearance at my front steps a few weeks ago joking with my husband that it was a sign to have another baby (my youngest and last baby is almost 5) but I think some baby must have dropped it on their stroller walk. I left it out on display in case they came back for it. Those things are seriously like gold!
  6. My husbands grandpa is a recovered alcoholic (40 plus years sober- he’s 93). When his wife died a few years ago we went to her funeral and were completely blindsided by it being held at his local AA chapter. We had to bow out at hour three because we had a five hour drive home. Listening to everyone’s stories was sobering but creepy as shit since we were supposed to be there for a funeral 🤷‍♀️ I think she’s as much an alcoholic as I am (maybe more since I don’t day drink). I think She’s looking for anything to excuse her shit ass parenting skills. Covid has made everyone take a second lo
  7. I’ve been a big proponent of schools at least opening back up. My daughters preschool closed last March and will not be opening back up this semester either. My two boys have attended 8 days of in person school since last March. My daughter starts Kindergarten in the fall and I’m crossing my fingers she gets to actually go to school. In the fall I taught my daughters and nieces preschool at home but decided not to do that this semester so I could focus on my school aged boys. Now, they do virtual learning in the morning and I home school them in the afternoon. They are so far behind grade
  8. As a former banker, it looked like a purple strap of 20’s. 2 grand.
  9. Ehh. I didn’t like Christmas Chronicles 2 as much as I loved the first one but I hate the trope of creating an “evil villain” when it’s not necessary. I also liked Santa’s musical number better in the first one. You can just tell me the story of people losing their Christmas Spirit over and over again without creating an “evil villain”. I’m easy like that. I think The Santa Claus handled part two of their franchise pretty well but after that when they had to bring in the Tooth Fairy, Jack Frost, Father Time, etc. it was too much. We family watched Disney’s Noelle for the first time last n

    The Baking Topic

    I’ve had no problem finding flour or yeast. Although I only started needing them until this month. December I go crazy cooking. Oddly enough one thing I can’t find that drives me crazy is that shower spray that you spray and leave when you are done showering. 🤷‍♀️ I can cook savory food pretty good so it’s always been a personal challenge of mine to be able to work with dough. I find I lack the patience. I love a good sourdough bread so I started my first ever “starter” a few days ago. It’s smelly but not bubbly yet 🤷‍♀️. I’m on day four. I made several loves of Challah over Thanksgiving
  11. My cable company is having a fight with CBS or somebody so I’ve had to pay extra for the CBS app just to watch this and happily I can now stop. Except of course if the Panthers game happens to be on CBS but usually it’s on Fox so I should be good. The alliance thing is bullshit and I wasn’t upset at Deangello’s attitude at the mat. Yes he should have not said what he did but I’d probably be pretty salty too. I followed his career in football and he’s really a good guy. I hope the boyfriends lose miserably as I think they did the least amount of work in the alliance to get to the final three. I
  12. Well the Panthers finally won a game! With at least two of their starters benched. Maybe that’s a sign. I’ve never understood the Bridgewater signing. 🤷‍♀️ Feel bad for Burrow. I don’t follow college football at all but last January I went to a VA Tech game because they were playing at Panthers stadium and my cousin plays in their marching band. I don’t even remember who they were playing but I digress. I’m a completionist so I watched the rest of the college season at home and saw the talent Burrow had. I was interested to see where his career took him.
  13. My four year old is an Amelia. Amelia Lucille actually ( named after two awesome red heads 😉 ). We tend to call her Millie or Meals.
  14. Our tribal casino here in NC is open. I hate going to the casino but my husband enjoys it so I obliged him for his bday back in August. That place was packed! Every other machine was open but I don’t think they were limiting the number of people inside. My mother in law is super paranoid about COVID. She should be since she’s a heavy smoker and diabetic who is experiencing severe complications from said diabetes. However she won’t keep her ass out of the casino and has proclaimed that she’s not sure about attending Thanksgiving next week. Hypocrite. There will be 16 of us. Our mandat
  15. It took me about three tries to get into it but I actually ended up liking Christmas on Wheels. I liked the leads and thought the uncle with the broken foot was giving me Marlon Brando vibes (appearance wise) for some reason. I’m a sucker for classic cars so that helped as well!
