Cold and Tired. A Rant.

cold and tired pictureI’m cold and tired.  I’m SO over this season.  I’m over the cold.  I’m over the gray, bleak, dreary moods of Mother Nature’s bipolar ways.  Can I get an amen?!?  Continue reading “Cold and Tired. A Rant.” »

What’s Your Brave?

Sky DivingToday, I want to challenge you to be brave. Is there something you want to do, but feel too afraid to try it? Ever have the urge to jump out of a plane? Let me be the first to say that I will NEVER have that urge, but I do know people who do. I actually know people who teach other people how to do it! Meanwhile, my thoughts are “What kind of stupid does someone have to be…?!?!” Continue reading “What’s Your Brave?” »

10 Things I Want My Daughter to Know

Me and AnnaleighSince the birth of my beautiful little tornado of a daughter, my life has basically been lived on Red Alert at all times.  She’s the craziest, spunkiest, feistiest little Ladybug I’ve ever seen.  And while she can take a hit like a Manning quarterback and get right back up, I must admit she has GOT to have an exhausted guardian angel.

10 Things I Want My Son to Know

Boo and I

This list is one of those things that I think all guys need.  When I was pregnant with Boo, I wrote him letters.  Someday, I’ll give them to him.  This is something along those lines, though he’s mostly too young to understand the full impact of this list right now.  But in ten years, I want it to be something he is grateful to have.  And something he uses.  **fingers crossed** Continue reading “10 Things I Want My Son to Know” »

beautiful you

Have you ever looked at another mom and immediately felt inadequate?  Do you allow your own self worth and value to be determined based on how well someone else does at being a woman? Continue reading “Have Some Substance!!!” »

Pardon My Progress

a life she loved

I think there is something to be said for making changes.  There is always a positive when you set a goal for yourself and then press toward that achievement.  And when you can look back at that goal – when you’re looking over the changes – you can actually SEE the difference you’ve made in your life…that’s a pretty exciting moment.

Some Stuff You Can’t Make Up

serious face

Recently, I had to take a road trip (I’ve actually taken more road trips in the last 6 months than I have in years!), but this one was unique in that it was a bit of a whirlwind – 3 states in 3 days.  And oh the craziness I saw!  You’re about to get a highlight reel from last week.  All of it is true.  In fact, here’s what I learned for sure: some stuff you can’t make up.
