Baby T Nursery Inspiration

T-minus 9 days until we leave for a child-free vacation. American Airlines still hasn’t confirmed our flight, I’m freaking out about my list of to-do’s that’s a mile long, still ruminating over the horrible doctor’s appointment I had on Monday, and worrying about what terrible parents we are going to look like for missing open house [at school] while we are gone. *hides face* Continue reading “Baby T Nursery Inspiration”

Free Time: Breaking The “Mom Rules”

Recently, my mind has been ON. And I don’t mean in the totally awesome way that means I’ve gotten 95% of my to do list accomplished by sheer will power. I mean, I have really bad pregnancy brain. I can’t stop thinking about things that I should be doing, halfway through the day I don’t remember any of them, even though I have written a physical list a million miles long. Like, I’ve “forgotten” to order contacts for the last four months straight.

The end result? Me. Napping.  Continue reading “Free Time: Breaking The “Mom Rules””

I’m A Better Mom When… 

My husband travels for work more often than I’d like. And even though he calls and texts me as often as he can when he isn’t here, it often still feels like I’m alienated on an entire other planet. Continue reading “I’m A Better Mom When… “

Mom Fail? My Kid Hated Camp

I know, I know… I haven’t blogged in six months (exactly), but who’s counting?

I could attribute it to a lot of things… depression, motherhood, pregnancy, lack of motivation… The truth is, though, LIFE IS FREAKING BUSY! And every little excuse I could use for abandoning this page is something that, in the grand scheme of things, just adds up to nothing other than life- as we know it.

However, I got really prompted to write today by my four-year old son…  Continue reading “Mom Fail? My Kid Hated Camp”

Top 5 {Recent} Amazon.Com Purchases

I’ll admit it: I’m addicted to Amazon. And that Prime 2-day shipping is #customerservicegoals.

It’s no secret that I love (and that term isn’t used loosely here) online shopping. I’ve never been a big fan of shopping in general; at least not if I actually have to venture out to the physical store. My anxiety gets the better of me and I’m never really able to enjoy myself.

Winter, Wine, & Wisdom

Dear, oh, dear! It has been exactly a month since I last posted here and (dare I say?) it actually feels longer. Unfortunately, the amount of motivation I had about a month ago is about the same as what I have now. No new jolt of energy since 2017 began. In fact, it goes without saying really– new year, same stuff. And, boy, is it disappointing to start blogging again only to feel that you’ve fallen into a rut soon thereafter. So, here I am, trying to mount the horse once again.

Not Your Typical 9 to 5

An unusual weekend (rambling) post from me because I’ve been pretty much MIA the last couple of weeks. Being a mom is full-time job and takes precedence over me, my interests, blog…etc. I just love when I tell people I’m a SAHM and they kinda smirk at me while thinking, “Yeah, so you don’t do anything”. Some have even daringly looked me in the face and said, “Yeah, but, I mean… you don’t really work.” Continue reading “Not Your Typical 9 to 5”
