silent battles

Welcome to Real Talk Tuesday where I offer my unsolicited, uncensored and probably unnecessary opinion on random topics as I supplement my post with gifs. I don’t know about you, but I regularly have to remind myself that people are all fighting battles we know nothing about. I love to jump to conclusions and overreact, […]

Fed is Best: 3 things pumping moms should know.

*Wordpress is going to tell you this post will take 74 minutes to read. I get it, it looks long. But I timed it. It’s like 5-6 minutes. Calm down, WordPress, you’re scaring people.* Part one of a three-part series I want to do on what has proven to be such a widely debated issue […]

long overdue updates

Happy Monday, blogosphere! Sheesh, it has been a solid… at least two weeks since I updated this dusty biotch. Is that a drug reference?  According to Urban Dictionary it’s not, but according to something Anthony’s cousin once said, “dusty” seemed as though it were in reference to crack so… your guess is as good as […]
