#BooSwap episode 1: Penn gets a blowout

Okay, it sounds like we are trading partners — but really our goal is to help our loved ones understand our habits, hobbies, and indulgences. This really started when Penn pestered me about getting a “blowout” before a big event. It went like this: Penn: “You paid $40 to have someone blow dry your hair? […]

Muck, slush, and cheese. An update on our real food adventure.

It’s happening! And it only took three days. I vowed to give up processed food for Lent. That means nothing store-bought with more than 5 ingredients (that I can pronounce), no crazy refined oils and sugars — just REAL FOOD. And after three days the rest of my family wants to join me in this […]

Forty Days

I will admit. I mostly went to church as a pre-teen/teen because there was a really cute boy in my youth group. There. I said it. I mostly drew hearts and our initials during sermons. I vaguely remember this time before Easter being super depressing. Then, finally, on Easter I got to wear a special […]

“How do you know there’s a heaven?” and other questions I’m not qualified to answer

No good news comes at 5:52 in the morning. Publisher’s Clearinghouse never surprises you with a life-changing check at 5:52 a.m. Your boss doesn’t call and offer you a promotion at 5:52 a.m. Yesterday I got a 5:52 a.m. call. My grandfather had died. My whole heart broke for my grandmother, his life’s love, his […]

Everything is a competition here. Even the flu.

Everything is a competition here – even the flu. Don’t get me wrong: Penn and I have a great marriage. But we bring out the best (read: competitive) side in each other. It’s more fun than it sounds. Trust me. We are each other’s main competition and biggest cheerleaders. Example: I encouraged Penn to take […]

Resolutions will have to wait.

Everything they say about the Flu is true. The “hit by a bus” feeling, the fever, chills .. EVERYTHING. We started popping Tamiflu yesterday  and have made HUGE gains. Just look at the video: today we can all sit upright! Baby steps…

#JammieTime: Merry Christmas from the Holderness Family!

For the last 11 months, every song we heard on the radio — we tried to morph into some weird family holiday parody. Nothing worked. Then, while on a Thanksgiving morning run, Penn looked at me and said, “I think I’ve got it.” Our year was fast, crazy, and overwhelmingly happy. This song and video […]

The Skinny on The Chew (and a recipe)

Earlier this week we were part of a “Thanksgiving Family Face-Off” on ABC’s The Chew. I told our kids, “this is a pretend competition.” It’s not like a race you run and have a definitive winner, or a spelling bee when there is a clear RIGHT or WRONG.  A cooking competition is entirely subjective based […]
