Happy Friday!! So yesterday we shared the most popular blog posts from across the year, but today I wanted to highlight some of the ones that were my FAVORITES to publish. Either because they were fun as hell to write, or because they contained some little nugget that got me to think about stuff in a new way. And not relating at all, but today […]

Morning, my dudes! (as said like my 5 y/o) Hope you had a great New Year’s break! Did you see that note the J. Money Fairy left us yesterday??! A true story that’s important to keep in mind as the year ticks on ;) But while we’re still in the spirit of reflecting right now, I thought we’d continue the tradition of sharing the most […]

Morning guys!! So I have something to announce today that I’m super excited – and super scared!! – to share, but as we always do here on the blog I’ll be as transparent and real as possible with y’all, and hopefully by the end of it you’ll still want to be friends :) This wild and crazy news that I still can’t believe I’m about […]

It’s been a while, eh? :) Anything wild or crazy happen with y’all lately? Some wild stuff happened here – but unfortunately not all in the “fun” department, haha… I just got back from an ER visit this weekend where I found out I have pneumonia (oops), making it the 2nd time at the hospital this month as we were just there when my son […]

Hey guys! So in an effort to be more “present” for our upcoming move and really soak everything in, I’ll be taking a break from blogging for the month of July (and the first week of August while we family vacay) to help slow down life more and enjoy the upcoming changes in our life :) I’ve caught myself trying to rush through everything here […]

Morning! Got a notification that it was my anniversary on a couple things this week (picking up my Lexus from Carmax (3 years), switching to Republic Wireless (5 years!)), and thought it might be helpful to see how we feel about it years later now :) Do I wish I could go back on any of them?! Did any of them completely change my life??! […]

Found this old draft in my inbox, and thought it was worth polishing up to better contrast Friday’s “everything is great for people!” post ;) We all have our wins, but we also have many fails along the way too – and it can 100% suck!! Especially when people go out of their way to tell you so! Haha… Here’s the post just briefly edited […]

What up what up! Day #6 of daily blogging and we’re still going strong! You enjoying them so far? Like the change? Wish I’d go back to M,W,F posting?

I’m never leaving again!!! ;) Not gonna lie though – it was a great escape for a few weeks spending time with my thoughts and family, and I’m finally ready to pretend I have a real […]
