Bowling For Breath Takes Place This Weekend in Quincy
If there's one constant that I love about Quincy, it's that when there is a need in the community, people come together to help. This weekend, your help is needed to raise money for those with Cystic Fibrosis.
The Fate of the Bergner's In Quincy is Now Known
This morning it was announced that the clothing store Bon-Ton (the parent company of Bergner's) was claiming bankruptcy. We didn't know whether the Berger's located in the Quincy Mall would be closing as a result...until now.
Dear Mother Nature, We Need To Chat
Okay Mother Nature, we need to have a little talk. I've got these brand new golf clubs that I have been patiently waiting to use since Christmas, so get your act together and bring us some actual spring weather!
American Idol Star Coming To Quincy
I used to watch American Idol all the time (not so much lately though). But I was all about it back in season six and I definitely remember Phil Stacey. He was amazing then and he's amazing now. And he's coming to Quincy for a free show!
Stuff A Critter For A Good Cause
Hannibal is hosting a very unique Stuff A Critter fundraiser for kids...but it's not what it sounds like. No taxidermy skills needed for this event.
It's OK Mom You Can Cry
This time of year, many parents will start registering their children for kindergarten. And while this can be a fun and exciting time for parents and children, it can also be pretty sad sometimes. Allow me to explain.
Its Your Chance to Dunk A Local Star
It's true. Brodie and I have been tapped to take a run in the dunk tank for a fundraiser on Friday night. So if you've ever dreamed of knocking either of us (preferably Brodie) into a pool of freezing water, you won't want to miss your chance!
The St. Louis Zoo is Expanding and Looks Amazing
It seems that every time I visit the St. Louis Zoo there is always some sort of construction going on. Usually minor stuff, which is a good thing because it shows that the city is invested in making it a fun place to visit. But this latest zoo expansion project is out of this world!
Do You Tip On A Carry-Out Order?
Let me set up the scene for you. You worked all day, the kids are having an off day, and you're exhausted. You call in a take out order from a restaurant, swing by on your way home, and pick it up. Now when you sign the receipt, it gives you an option to leave a tip. Do you?
Hey Quincy, Spoonwave is Back!
Our hearts were broken in December when it was announced that Spoonwave was closing up shop. My kiddo, (who calls Spoonwave "toppings") took it pretty hard as I'm sure many of you did as well. But we now have some good news! Spoonwave is back!
This is One Crazy Baby Announcement
Every soon-to-be parent--especially every soon-to-be mother--remembers that moment when it was "that time" to go to the hospital. I remember like it was yesterday. Watching "Late Night with Seth Meyers" last night reminded me of those crazy first moments before my husband and I w…
Quincy's BBB Just Saved My Butt!
I'd like to take a minute and say THANK YOU to the Quincy Better Business Bureau for helping me avoid what was most likely a big scam that would have cost me upwards of $1,700.
Wearing A Towel On TV Ain't A 'Missouri Girl' Thing, Jenna Fisher
I'm not sure you if caught Jenna Fisher (from The Office) on Jimmy Kimmel last night, but she had a slight wardrobe malfunction that led to a memorable interview during which Jenna was wearing just a towel. But what she said next definitely took me by surprise.
