"Well done, Sister Suffragette!"
My newest newspaper column is up at The Greenville News!

I'm particularly proud of this one, which celebrates Women's History Month, Mary Poppins, and the suffragettes.

I hope you enjoy it. And if you do, I hope you'll share!

Have a wonderful weekend, all.

What I'm Giving Up for Lent
For Lent this year, I've decided to give up three things. They are as follows:

1. Cheddar cheese

This is a true test of my discipline. I am a cheese-aholic. Just ask my husband. But I am weak, and didn't think I could give up cheese entirely for 40 days. So it's the cheddar that's getting the ax.

2. Zulily

Have you checked out this discount site for moms, babies and kids? I hesitate to even mention it, it's so addicting. It's got clothes for you and the little (and not so little) ones, shoes (my major fashion weakness), home goods, playground equipment, kitchenware, and so much more. Too many Zulily packages have been arriving at my door lately. And so it's no shopping--window or otherwise--for me until after Easter.

3. Facebook

I'm actually not on Facebook that much. However, a good friend gave me the idea of giving it up for Lent. So, I'm setting it aside for the duration. One caveat: I will post every Thursday, and only on Thursday, when my newest newspaper column comes out. Girl's got to put food on the table.

But today is Fat Tuesday, so I hope you all eat, drink, and are very merry! Catch you on the flip side.
