About 6 or so months ago a group of friends were texting and joking around about how we needed a break and would love to go on a girls trip. This seemed far fetched because how on earth could we possibly manage to get FIVE husbands to agree to let all the wives go on… Read More Girls Trip to NYC 2014
I’ve had a lot of time on my hands since moving here because I have literally one friend here (this is not a sob story- its my fault, I have been laying low). So I was browsing during “rest time” one day on Instagram over a month or so ago and found a local photographer.… Read More the joy that is family picture day.
Right after we moved here I was in this state of bliss that almost scared me because it had been a LONG DANG TIME since we had no catastrophes or crisis situations. We were living a dream for a good two months of calm. Well. CALM IS OVER. Now, nothing “huge” (like a child who… Read More this is what we call a success
This morning Rory reached the height of her disdain for me so far in her life because I dropped her off at school in a hoodie and a baseball hat. Rory: Mom can you just open the door and let me go in? Me: No, why? Rory: Well. Look at you. Like. For real. Me:… Read More Like. For real.
Yesterday I took Rory to school as per usual and got home with Ryder. She was in her room playing like she loves to do (because she gets to play ALONE in her imaginary dream world) and I was sitting on the couch watching my usual Gilmore Girls because I CANNOT QUIT. All of a… Read More hush. don’t scare it away.
Well. I’ve been away. Har har har. I don’t even know what is wrong with me. I literally called Andy this morning and told him I would love to go in a room and just yell for about an hour without stopping and maybe I would feel better. So basically if any of you are… Read More but my mouth was open!
I was a stay-at-home mom for 4 years before getting a job last year. I lived in unwashed/undone hair, little to no makeup, and yoga pants on a good day. Most days I stayed in my pajamas stained with crap (literally). When I got a job I had an excuse to dress nice and put a good… Read More Taking care of yourself as a SAHM (some tips). #write31days
My parents are currently here visiting and I’m treasuring every second with them. Therefore, I am not writing so much. Here is what I will say, my girls were so surprised when my parents showed up I thought Ryder was for sure going to faint or sob and Rory was bouncing off the walls in… Read More say and go (because I’m a failure). #write31days
Well. I already missed a day. Dangit. But man yesterday was crazy. So I’m giving myself grace on that. Ironically yesterday’s topic was stuck and obviously I’m supposed to take that and write beautiful words like my friend Cynthia did, but today I’m just gonna tell you the tale of Ryder got a splinter stuck in her… Read More That is stuck and I know she did not cut her hair.

I’m sitting here mulling over the word learn. This post could go a thousand different ways. There are so many things I would love to learn: a foreign language, how to sew, how to “balance it all”, how to make my children obey at least 99% of the time, how to enjoy every moment of… Read More Learn. #write31days
