My Experience with LuLaRoe

I feel that I should say this right off the bat. I hate clothes shopping. I’ve got wide hips and am average height making it close to impossible to find the perfect fit. It was very frustrating trying to figure out what looked good on me and that resulted in a hit to my self…

Christianity over Patriotism

I never been a big political person. In college when Barack Obama was running, I wasn’t overly excited. Not because he wasn’t a good candidate but because I was green. I felt like my voice really didn’t matter much and to be honest I was barely an adult. He also wasn’t going against an evil…

How a Little Paint Changes Everything

I love color. There is no denying it. Something speaks into my soul when I see different warm and rich colors. It provokes feelings of happiness, comfort or even energizes. I know I’m weird. So when we first officially bought our house, I was so excited to change the walls. In a previous post I…

Why I Started Saying Yes to Myself

You were made by hand with great love by the God of the universe, and he planted deep inside of you a set of loves and dreams and idiosyncrasies, and you can ignore them as long as you want, but they will at some point start yelling. Worse than that, if you ignore them long…

Life Update

The pup, son and I were staying at casa de parents for the whole week while the hubs continued to work from home/monitor the progress. When we first bought our house, we loved the space. The previous owners, who flipped…

My Take on Grocery Shopping

For the last few years, I’ve been the one responsible for meals and groceries. This wasn’t the case when I first got married. Being fresh from college graduation, I really wasn’t prepared for budgeting or legit meal prep. I mean I could eat takeout every night however that should not be encouraged for long periods…

Meryl Streep, I applaud you.

“Disrespect invites disrespect. Violence incites violence. And when the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose.” -Meryl Streep This week has been weird in the world of social media. The top trending topics have included the Green Bay Packers (which they should be), Meryl Streep at the Golden Globes and then after…

Rotisserie Chicken Casserole

It is cold today in Wisconsin which really shouldn’t be a surprise since it is winter. As I was leaving the Y today, a man  said “Well, at least there are no mosquitoes.” Honestly, I would rather have flying bloodsuckers over below freezing temperatures. Today’s high is 7 degrees and it currently feels like -12….

Another Blog?!

It is that time of year where everyone and their mom has this thought, “I’m going to start a blog!” I’m sorry but I’m going to be one of those people. I’ve wanted to do this for a while but I didn’t have the motivation to do so. Now that I’m a mom to a…
