holiday weekend vibes

Whew!  Well, I had certainly intended to post quite a bit more of the last three weeks than I have.  In a nutshell, my mom visited for a week mid-late June, and then four days later, Anthony’s family came for almost a week and stayed until the third, and things haven’t slowed down until this […]

symptoms of a miscarriage

I’ve been wanting to open up about this topic for a long time.  It wasn’t so much that I felt private about it. It was more that I couldn’t find the phrasing, nor a way to introduce a topic that pretty much came out of left field- mostly because I was so tight-lipped about it. […]

it’s visitor season!

Happy Friday all! I hope you all recovered from your three day weekends just in time for another weekend!  Ha.  Probably easier said than done, but isn’t it amazing how much quicker a four-day week goes by than a five-day?!  I vote for four days on, three days off.  Am I right or am I […]

It’s spring so get cleaning!

Happy Friday gals & guys!  It’s crazy how on Mondays, Friday seems so far away, but in the long run, when you look back at the week, it feels like it went so fast! Or maybe that’s just me.  Or the warmer weather that we are finally having! I don’t know about you, but temperatures […]

Baking them.  Not eating them.  Eating never scares me. […]

Happy Hump Day!  I hope everyone’s weeks are fantastic despite some pretty shady weather in certain areas.  Out here in the ole midwesty, this past weekend, we seemed to be back in the throes of late winter, with cold rainy temps down in the 40s.  So, back to jackets and boots for us!  Back on […]

take the trip.

Happy Friday Eve, all! After seven or so months of debating a trip to Florida, about four weeks ago, (because this post is late AF) Anthony and I finally did it. I love summer.  I love warm weather, and BBQs, and beaches, and pretty much anything else that comes with it.  However I have always been pretty […]

getting it out of my system

Any Catholics in the house?? If so, then you probably know everyone’s favorite time of year is coming up…  Lent! Ha.  Just kidding.  Not in an offensive way, just, I’m really into chicken & turkey & hot dogs and that literal one day per week that I can’t have it during the season of Lent […]
