Games, Drinks, and Comfortable Pants…

On December 31st we usually celebrate the tradition of getting together with friends and bidding the year farewell! Unfortunately I tend to have unrealistic expectations for NYE. I always envision a gorgeous evening filled with great food and cocktails. After a night of dancing and laughs my husband will kiss me at midnight, a perfect end to a perfect evening. The reality is I usually have a full blown five alarm melt down in my closet when I have nothing to wear…or nothing fits (thanks so much Christmas Cookies).

Achieve Balance from 8 California Red Blends

Talks between my husband and I over a holiday schedule is comparable to UN negotiations. They can sometimes go smoothly and other times cause threat of war and trade embargoes. I find it difficult to blend his families traditions with mine. His folks live five hours away so we can’t do the “lunch at your parents and dinner at mine” action. His family has large gatherings, while my side is very low key. It is funny how even little things one family does can be outright bizarre to another.

Mom's Day Brunch

In April of 2008 I became a mom to a baby girl. The first few weeks at my new job title as a mom were a little rocky. I have never taken care of a baby, and didn’t really have an understanding of what my new position in life entailed. First off, newborns don’t do much but eat, sleep, and cry. When I was sleep deprived, dancing up and down the hall chanting “shhhhhhhhh” to my screaming daughter, I decided I was going to get on a schedule and be organized. Hell, it always worked with my career! Fast forward to three months in and I smell like a mix of baby vomit and diaper cream.

Say No To Bush-League Valentine’s Day

Why can’t Valentines Day be as easy as it was in grade school? Everyone in class would put their brown paper bag on their desk and it would be filled with conversation hearts and small To and From notes sponsored by the giver’s favorite cartoon character. No one is let down or left out of the holiday! I actually enjoy this holiday due to my parents, they were great Valentine’s Day role models. My dad didn’t have a lot of money to spend one year so he bought a small shrub, planted it in the front yard, and took his hedge clippers and shaped it into a heart.

Like Father Like Daughter

It’s pretty simple… we’re vested in Southern Illinois. It’s where we live, it’s where we raise our families, it’s made of the communities we choose to support and it’s where we CHOOSE to call home. It’s special. (Here’s where we get all mushy)… The holiday season is a time when most reflect upon their blessings and we’re no different.

THANK YOU to our customers, co-workers and community partners across Southern Illinois.

Sunday Bloody Sunday

I am not a fall/winter person. Usually when this time of year hits, I slowly slide into a mild depression. In my life, Autumn is the time of year that boats and patio furntiure get covered and stored. The flowers that I dropped a small fortune on in May are ready for the compost pile, to make way for the pumpkins and mums. I feel like the old lady on Game of Thrones who keeps repeating in the dread, "The Winta's Coming!!". I may be self medicating, but I tend to ramp up my weekend booze intake as the cooler temperatures infiltrate the area.
