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? […]

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 […]

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 […]
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. 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 […]
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…

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 […]

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 […]

Making those DIY crafts and recipes work...no matter how many tries it takes.
Have a laugh on us!
Lifestyle, exercise and diet tips to keep you healthy (or health-ish).
In most of our content, you see us having fun with, and making fun of, our family and our marriage. There’s plenty to laugh at, there is also plenty to work on. This portion of our website is all about our ongoing quest to be better at being married to each other. The content is a little longer form than the usual videos, but it will still make you laugh - and hopefully it’ll make you think a little!
Parodies and original music to make you smile.
We create videos that are meant to make you laugh. This is our podcast that is meant to make you think (and hopefully still laugh a little!).
The Holderness family has been dancing in pajamas and singing during snow days for years — but last year they hit the record button on the camera and published their goofy video on YouTube. Penn, Kim, Lola, and Penn Charles continue to make hilarious videos around tent-pole events and circumstances most families face.
