Girls. From day one, we get sucked in. Disney princesses, Barbie, makeup, fashion, magazines, fairy tales etc…. All of them have one thing in common- Beauty. Being beautiful gets you the prince, makes you wealthy, and gives you power. At least that’s the message we receive as young little girls. Now, don’t get me wrong,… Read More Icing on the cake
“Oh for goodness sakes!” This has become my go to phrase of frustration since my children have become observant little elementary schoolers. I don’t know why I keep saying it- it just comes out. But from where?? Where does this come from?? I was thinking about this earlier today…. A lot of expressions we use,… Read More Why do we say these things???

6:30 am. My phone plays a gentle melody to softly jostle me out of my sleep that only recently has been achieved 20 minutes earlier (due to dog 1 of 3, puking all over our bedroom). Snooze button activated. Time to mentally prepare myself for the second alarm that will sound in only 30 short… Read More Mornings and tiny ninjas.

In a few short weeks your children will be running around in costumes (most of them way over priced and lacking quality), asking strangers for candy. It’s the… Read More Candy, nightmares, and insomnia..

I think being stubborn is my saving grace. During those times of doubt, there’s always that voice in the back of my head… Read More Chopped. (DIY Hair edition)
