F* It

I’m not sure it’s appropriate to write about the woes of discipline after empathetically writing about how hard it must be for my toddler to live his life always hearing “no” but things change quickly around here. The real name of the game is ‘parenting’ – always is. The nice weather has really been bringing out a new […]

For my birthday, Seth bought a pair of Blake Shelton tickets and set up a date night for us. As sweet of a gesture as it was, I wasn’t completely thrilled – on one hand, we all know how I feel about Blake and Gwen (aka Gwake Stelfton) and on the other, I have high […]

In a couple weeks Seth and I are going to Chicago for a friend’s wedding. Not wanting to spend 500+ dollars on flights, we decided to road trip (help us, Jesus). Ever since we decided to drive Seth has been reminding me that “we” need to take the car in to get serviced. I think […]

You know what’s dumb? Easter candy. It’s like the devil got dressed up in delicate, frilly pastel clothes to go romp around on a sunny hillside with baby farm animals and I can’t stop paying to watch.

I wish the world could see me right now, in all my glory. I’m in bed drinking chicken broth out of coffee mug, nibbling on crackers and watching American Housewife. In bed next to me is one of those across-the-head thermometers, a bottle of Tylenol, a bottle Tums, half a roll of toilet paper and a […]

Seth asked me not to buy him anything for his birthday and so I’m granting his wish by, instead, composing a series of haikus in his birthday honor. I also woke up at 6:00 am to cook our very first legit family breakfast at home this morning (featured below with ‘the house tank’), took the kids […]

Do you ever just sit back sometimes and think about what your dream life would look like? Recently Seth and I have been talking a lot about what our next life move will be. On one hand, it’s really exciting because when Seth and I first got together he wasn’t exactly the dreaming type – and especially […]

One year ago today, I was sitting at home rounding out my maternity leave with Baby Bot FINALLY taking Seth’s advice and biting the bullet, publishing my VERY first blog post. Ever. Appropriately, my very first blog post was a short piece on Donald Trump, the orange bully. It feels like a lifetime of things have […]
