For today’s challenge I decided I was going to sign a petition.  Problem was, what do I sign?!  I am not particularly political (Chris is political enough for the both of us), I support a lot of ideas and ideals but to sign a petition for an actual ACTION is tough for me.  I need […]

Inspire Challenge: Clean Something!

By Alicia Courtney

carwash

Ugh… cleaning.  Something that never ends for me.  I pick up the living room only to turn around and have Cheerios all over the carpet.  Or I get my office straightened up and then after a crazy brainstorming session I have stuff everywhere (including salsa… how does that always happen?!) But despite my constant cleaning […]

By Alicia Courtney

mailman

What an easy thing to do.  I had to walk 30 paces from our front door to our mailbox to drop off a handwritten card and Coke from the Courtneys.  Annalise and I go get the mail every day together so today as I walked I told her how important it is to surprise people […]

By Alicia Courtney

Screen shot 2013-09-04 at 4.49.55 PM

A lot of the time the delivery of a joke is what makes it funny.  And most of the time I get the timing off and end up laughing before the punch line.  But since there was a lot of texting jokes going around this week, I thought I’d share some of them I saw. […]
