I Break Things

I’ve created a reputation for myself.

It started young, this special gift of mine. There are always those popular “Rebekah stories” that surface whilst entertaining guests over dinner, and the one about me wrecking my dad’s classic car is definitely at the top.

It isn’t what you think.

Left On The Side Of The Road — A Mother’s Story (Part 2 of The Night My Mother Went Missing)

It all started when I received a phone call from my daughter asking me, as she has in the past, if I was doing anything that night.

She was car shopping and wanted to know if I would go with her. The drive time to the dealer with traffic—over one hour and a half.

Pondering how crazy it was to shop for a car that was so far away on a weekday evening, I agreed, and we left.

Our last day exploring New York was a success, complete with humidity, candy, famous movie sights, and a chocolate shake as big as my head.

Goodbye New York. I will miss you.

New York is beautiful—at three A.M.—standing on the sidewalk at the corner of the airport—abandoned by parents—vlogging aimlessly.

Thus begins our adventures in New York.

Potty Talk W/The Koontzes | VLOGMAS #21

There are two things us, Koontzes, are best at: 1.) Being loud and 2.) Bathroom humor. Nothing dirty. Simply, humor derived from personal experiences in the bathroom.

We can go on and on.

Now that my big brother is home, our two main skills are instantaneously magnified.

You get a healthy dose of the Koontz family in today’s vlog.

Whether you are emotionally prepared for it or not—that is the question.

Dad & I Sing “All Because Of Love”

Dad & I sing all because of love

Even though this tends to primarily be a humor blog, I am also a sentimental fool.

[And I am queen AND RULER OF ALL SO I CAN DO AS I PLEASE!!!!]

In honor of Father’s Day today, I would like to share a video of my dad and I singing. I feel that this is one of the first times we’ve sang a duet together, but there’s nothing as fun and special as singing with someone you know. And who, besides mom, do you know better than your dad?

Mommy, Me, & Maybelline

Mommy, me, and  maybelline 2

It’s Mother’s Day here in the U.S. The day of pastels, and lilies, and lots and lots of massive, heart-shaped cards entitled I love you THIS much! 

It was a lovely coincidence that I was sent a foundation too dark for my skin tone.

In true Mommy-Spirit, my mom graciously sat and smiled as I fluttered around her, dabbing, and spraying, and wiping. It got dicey when we came to mascara. But the foundation was definitely the star of the show.

Everyone has their set of special skills.

Some of us possess skills the world isn’t ready for. We’re misunderstood—unappreciated, even. We are Superman.

One of my special skills happens to be setting things ablaze burning things in our indoor, square fire-pit. Normal people call it a microwave.
