Buzzed buddies is a weekly series where I invite a friend to get comfortably inebriated and write a guest post on any chosen topic. March Madness officially kicks off this week, so I’ve invited my fellow English major/birthday buddy/parent of the year, Brandon, to impart upon all of us his basketball expertise and tutor us in bracketology […]

A few things have interestingly enough coincided this week, so I’m going to take it as a sign from the universe that what I’m about to write is meant to be. The first being the conversation I had this morning with my friend Bev ^, the second being the fucking shit storm of opinions on Kim K’s latest […]

I love birthdays. If there’s anything you should know about me, it’s that I love birthdays. I LOVE them – I don’t understand people who take them lightly. When you reach a milestone as big as living another year and getting to kickstart the next, you should celebrate. You deserve it – life isn’t always easy and it’s almost […]

*THIS POST PROBABLY CONTAINS TMI* This morning I woke up with half the amount of eyelashes I woke up with yesterday. (#iwokeuplikethis #sohot) Why, you ask? Well, apparently the pollen count is high. I’m not even entirely sure what that means but I do know for this first time in the history of my life, I’m suffering […]

There are so many things I wonder about put-together moms, there are also SO many things I assume. For example, I assume they planned their pregnancy and have known since they were six how many kids they were going to have, down to the gender and color of hair. I assume they don’t work – but if […]

Buzzed buddies is a weekly series where I invite a friend to get comfortably inebriated and write a guest post on any chosen topic. This week my co-parent/roommate/partner Seth will kick off the series with parenting advice (sort of). I don’t edit or filter the posts (I’m sure Seth will make me regret that) in fear of […]

I’m not exactly the lovey dovey type. I’m not really into any sort of PDA. I loathe Valentine’s day. And I’m really, REALLY, really skeptical of beautiful couples (Are any of them actually happy?!). But anyway, you know who doesn’t seem to have any issue with PDA or hate Valentine’s day? Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton. Could there be a […]

Let me preface this by saying I love being a mom. I’m not even sure what I did before I had kids. Well, actually, that’s a lie… Confession #1. I love being a mom but I know exactly what I did before I had kids. And I miss it. At times, I still find myself mourning […]

Okay, this isn’t a political post – though, I can see how it might seem that way. This is a post about morals, self respect, humility, family values and, quite frankly, about sanity. Let’s begin by revisiting the golden rule – the basic foundation of interacting with other human beings: Do unto others as you would […]
