…and in to 2021 we go.

2021 intention: DO. My 2021 intention is a simple one. Do. Do what? Well, anything, everything, something. 2020 was a hell of a year. I’ve never written as much in one year as I did in 2020. But… I thought that was your job? Writing? Well, it is actually. Problem is, I was never given […]

It’s Smoothie Season!

When life spirals out of control… you buy smoothies. Hi, friends, it’s been awhile. It hasn’t been a lack for anything to say, it’s been more of a lack of time. In October, my office moved about 15 miles north, and my in-office schedule changed. My position changed slightly, with my duties being focused more […]

Sundown Nutrition’s complete multivitamin for kids: Review!

Through Moms Meet, I was given the chance to get some of my parent friends together, and try Sundown’s children’s complete multivitamin gummies. As parents, we always want what’s best for our kids – which means making sure their tiny bodies are getting what they need. When they’re plugging their noses at the green beans […]

Truth-telling Thursdays: The Social Anxiety Monster.

Until 3 years ago, this is what my beach life looked like. EMPTY. This isn’t a metaphor for anything. No connection to my infertility journey.This is my anxiety convincing me that I needed to be off the beach any time I went, before everyone else showed up – or else… I was born and raised […]

Tales of Parenthood: Becoming “Sports Mom”.

Oh, dear. What have I done? It was the only thing I kept repeating in my head as I raced around our house, trying to make sure we had anything we’d need before we left – because we weren’t coming back to the house if something was forgotten. Bug spray. Hat. Catcher’s glove. Towel to […]

Tasty Tuesday: (Protein) Chocolate oat cookies.

There’s a backstory to the reason why I’ve gotten back on the “make your own protein, good for you snacks” train, but really, I know I just scroll by most of the “backstories” on other recipe posts, and not to mention – I’ve seen the abundance of memes popping up lately saying: Just get to […]

Fit Friday: Athleta Hyper Focused sports bra review.

One of the toughest things to do when you’re active as a female is: finding a sports bra that not only does the job it’s been bought to do, but is comfortable too. If it’s not too tight, in the day and age of the 500-strap sports bra, it’s damn near impossible to get on, […]

Tasty Tuesday: Cinnamon Raisin muffins, uh, I mean bread.

I don’t even know who I am anymore. There. I said it. I baked. AGAIN. Like I said, I don’t know who I am. It all started with about a hundred of those little tiny raisin boxes floating around my son’s snack basket (he’s been a raisin fiend for the past month), and shifted one […]

Wellness Wednesday: Saying no to family gatherings.

I realized I was done with large, if not most gatherings – hosting, or attending, when a brand new jar of locally made ketchup, a gift from a friend, crashed onto my kitchen floor. Enough was enough. My mental health, having some grasp on my anxiety, was more important. It started way back, when I was a […]

Threads Thursday: The Sweater Fix.

That’s right. You read that title correct. I got another fix from Stitch Fix. They waived my fee after getting my feed back on that last fix, so I figured – why not? I can’t really call it a sweater fix, because I did get a pair of pants in the box, but the rest […]
