Pre-Christmas Birthday Madness

We always expect this time of year to be busy, but WHOA! Slow down, Santa! But you just smile and keep on trudging through it because it’s your life, and you wouldn’t change it. On Saturday, we had Everett’s birthday party with a couple dozen of his favorite friends bowling

Looking Back and Looking Forward

I just finished up the last bit of leftover squash soup with turkey sausage. I made it as an appetizer on Thanksgiving and it is so delicious, I have to share it, so click here. The first time I made it all in the pot like the recipe says, but

Birthday Blitz

My little buddy will be two next month. Can you believe it? Roman’s birthday is August 27th. We’ll be having his party a couple weeks before that, and we’ve decided to go with the “Old McDonald” theme. This kid could sing ‘E-I-E-I-O’ all day long (and sometimes does). It’ll just be a small family-and-friends party, and I just

Here Comes Thanksgiving

Argue with me if you want, but Thanksgiving is the best holiday of all! It’s the food, the parade, the traditions, the family and friends–WITHOUT all the insanity that gift-giving provokes. We’re hosting the big feast this year. Count along with me will you? My mom, dad, grandma, Marc’s mom,

My New Normal

Getting up at 3:30AM is my new ‘normal’ as I fill-in on the Magic 98 Morning Show. Usually my two year-old, Roman, gets up once at night. I go get him, we snuggle into the recliner for a couple hours, and then my alarm clock goes off. I try to

I’m an Auntie Again!

Honestly, it just doesn’t get any better than this. It looks like her first name will be Evelyn, after my 95-year-old grandma, but there’s no word on her middle name yet. I can tell you that she’s a healthy, happy, little (well, at 9 pounds, 6 ounces so not so

Hail Yes!

So how many times have we gotten a forecast with hail in it and actually gotten hail? (That was a rhetorical question, but I’ll answer it: hardly ever.) Last Monday night, man oh man did we get hail! I was on the west side on Old Sauk Road when the

You Had a Crazy Week? THIS Is a Crazy Week!

Because the end of summer and the beginning of school marks such a crazy time in a mom’s life, I thought I’d let you in on just how crazy the Hansen household has been.  Follow along with me now. . . . Last week, my very first nephew, the guy

We Love Madison Parks

Thanks so much for coming out for our Dinner and a Swim events at Goodman Pool this summer. Hundreds beat the hot, sticky weather in the Goodman Pool and chowed on dinner from some amazing local food carts. Magic 98 is more than honored to be able to partner with
