Babe Lincoln (part I)

Ever since I started blogging (literally back when I was 13 years old on LiveJournal.com, hi I’m so embarrassed) I would see moms and new moms alike sharing the birth stories of their babies. As someone who has aspired to be a mom since I was just a kid myself, I always figured I’d have […]

when everyone is full of crap.

Welcome to Real Talk Tuesday! I don’t know why I boast this “feature” on my blog.

It’s been quite the year. Actually, that’s a huge understatement.. […]

I’m a sucker.

Hi, I’m Sam, & I am a sucker. Hi Sam. A sucker for reality TV. (Ha, bet you thought I was going to say at blogging… that too, clearly.) I don’t know if the Duggar family really counts as reality trash. At least not in the same way as the Kardashians or the Real Housewives of Who […]

hometown homage

As of about two weeks ago, we have officially begun “commuting” to “work” each day. AKA we wake up at Anthony’s parents house, drive an hour and twenty twice a day to work on our house and to come back to the in-laws to be fed dinner like the carefree teenagers we eternally wish to […]
