Big Fan of Shark Week? Here’s a New Drinking Game to Try.

Shark Week started Saturday on the Discovery Channel, and more people are watching it this week than at any point in the week's 27-year history.  The popularity has grown, and with it comes a pretty intense drinking game.  Here are the rules!

One Mom Shatters The Breast Milk Record

If you have babies, did you breast feed?  I did it for ten months and by the end I was plum worn out.  It was a great bonding experience and I loved that part of it, but it was hard on a girl's body too.

One woman has set a new record for the amount of breast milk pumped, and the total is pretty unbelievable!

Finally! The Middle Child Gets All The Attention

 

Oh that poor middle child, always the forgotten and neglected one and rarely the center of attention.  That's my middle child in the pic, and she's not afraid to yell and stomp until she's noticed.  Middle kids do what they gotta do!

The middle child will get all the love next week in Boise!

It's a night just for them, and they'll even be able to get autographs from talented sports stars who also happen to be middle children.

Katy Perry Inspires Me

I love and respect Katy Perry on so many levels, and I'm always interested in what she has to say about love.

She doesn't just suffer a breakup and wallow in the pain, but instead she seems to want to learn what she can from the experience and take that with her for next time.

People like that fascinate and inspire me.

Really? Some Foods Can Make Us MORE Hungry.

I think I've admitted before that I'm a little OCD when it comes to weight.  I weigh myself every day and I freak out if I get toward the upper end of my self-imposed five pound window because I don't like how my stomach feels above a certain weight and I can't stand tight pants.  I was chubby as a kid and in college and a lot of my weight issues are no doubt tied to that.  On the positive side, it's made me more conscious of the things I eat and it's forced me to make choices that are consistent with health goals, and on the negative side it kinda drives me nuts.

Anyhoo, I just read that there are some foods that can actually make us more hungry.  Crazy! Are there any foods that can trick us into being full?
