The Pee Rug

The Pee Rug

You know, I spent a lot of my life disliking animals. Sure, I loved the occasional puppy or kitten, but overall, I was really turned off by animals. It started with a bunny my parents bought me in 4th grade after months of my begging. I loved that bunny so much; he roamed our home, my […]

Traveling With Children: What I Learned

Traveling With Children: What I Learned

Our family doesn’t do a whole lot of traveling. Justin and I started our lives young and quick, and frankly, we can’t afford traveling right now. Just this year have we really taken a couple vacations. Justin’s dad and step-mom took Barb, Justin and I (along with Justin’s brother and his wife) on an Alaskan cruise […]

Dear Keurig Coffee Maker

Dear Keurig Coffee Maker

Dear Keurig Coffee Maker, When I first met you, it was love at instant pour. I became quickly addicted to your shiny buttons, your selection of brewing cup-sizes, and the endless convenience you provided. You broke one day and I called your maker and he sent me a new version of you. We carried on for […]

Office Makeover DINOSAUR STYLE

ORGANIZEDWALL2

I realized the other day that I spend about 9 hours a day in my office. I wake up at 6:30AM and am seated in the same spot for roughly 9 hours excluding lunches and breaks for… SQUIRREL! (distraction breaks). I looked around my office and thought to myself “This is so not ME. This […]

Collarbone Challenge BULLSHIT

Collarbone Challenge Bullshit

I scan my newsfeed like the rest of you lovies everyday. I see the happy faces of my family in photos at recent BBQ’s, birth announcements of my friends growing families, the latest celebrity break-ups (still weeping over Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck), and then, sometimes, I come across some really obscure shit. The latest […]

I Cracked Today

I Cracked Today

I cracked today. Like, cried “cracked” today. Like “I broke the fuck down ‘cracked’ today.” I normally do a pretty decent job at keeping it together. I am lighthearted, I laugh, I find the funny in most everything, but today I cracked. I cry for other people, I cry at commercials, but rarely do I […]

Kids Are Effin’ Messy

Kids Are Effin Messy

Children are great, Barb provides me with more laughs than any human on the planet, however, she’s also taught me quite a few things; one in particular: Kids Are Effin’ Messy (!!!!!!) Having children teaches you many things. Maybe your level of patience was re-defined when adding your mini-humans to your clan, maybe you learned […]

The Time I Broke An FAA Regulation

The Time I Broke An FAA Flight Regulation

I must say, being able to walk around an airplane while it is IN AIR, but not being afforded the same privilege while ON THE GROUND sort of, well, really fucking baffles me. However, apparently there are rules while on a plane, and it appears that I managed to break one, or a few… So, I present […]

Las Vegas, You Make Me Feel Old

Las Vegas, You Make Me Feel Old

My husband and I recently took a two day getaway to Vegas. I was so stoked, who doesn’t love Vegas? It has the label of “Sin City” for a reason—it’s a guaranteed GREAT TIME! After being married for 8 years and never taking a vacation together, I willingly snatched up an invite we received for […]

I’m a Drug Addict- Guest Post by Lara F.

I'm a Drug Addict

I was fortunate enough to have one of my dear friends share a very powerful story with me. Through a message, she delivered such a raw, and emotion packed account of her life; where she’d been since I’d last seen her in high school, how she was now and how she got there. I asked her […]
