Another {real} Love Letter

My dearest #3, In just a few short days you will be turning five.  This year, your birthday is hitting me hard.  Harder than any other birthday, any other year.  I am not sure why. I don't know where your infant or toddler years went.  I remember telling myself to be present with your tiny…

Light It Up

When you have kids things tend to break.  Shocking, I know. Our furniture is outdated and overused, but I cannot bring myself to replace it at this juncture in life.  I am one hundred and twenty percent sure that one of our five munchkins will mark up anything new with sharpies, scissors or glittery glue.…

Baby Registry Rip-offs

There have been quite a few changes to baby items since I had my first nearly a decade ago.  During that time, several gimmicks have hit the market.  I have been conned into believing I needed some of the most overrated items.  So, what is a seasoned momma to do when she realizes she has…

You learn a lot about society's statutes on family…

Hatchamable-gate

I love my kids.  A lot.  Dare I say "too much" {if that's a thing}.  I am amazed by all of their sweet little features.  I am in awe of their beautiful personalities.  There isn't anything I wouldn't do for them.  I want to give them the world.  {insert favorite cliches regarding motherhood here}.  A few…

The New Mullet

I was recently introduced to Lularoe.  When it started I just wanted to help a friend earn some rewards at a party.  I thought, "I like leggings so I'll just get a pair to wear around the house."  And ERMAGHERD...obsessed.  Now, if you are anti-Lularoe, I lost you already.  But, hang with me, if you…

For Reals.

I.am.rebellling. Against all the social media perfection. Against all those completing the perfect Pinterest projects. Against all those with the ‘charmed’ life. Perfect homes, perfect families, perfect vacations, perfect finances, perfect relationships. I am sure it is not a grand idea to start a blog with a negative, but I did. I am a wife…
