My Year of Running Dangerously

My Year Of Running Dangerously – Audio Book Review

One thing I often hear from stay-at-home moms is how much they miss the constant adult conversation that a workplace brings. I can easily see how it can happen and I found myself falling into the same mentality when I was home on maternity leave. Yes, a 3-year-old brings lots of conversation, but there are […]

2017 Goals – Looking Forward To A New Year

I feel like I say the same thing every year… wow did this year go by fast. It’s been a memorable one. From watching Little Man grow up to bringing Baby B into the world, 2016 has been busy. When I look back at my things to accomplish for 2016 I realize just how much has changed. […]

Last Minute Gifts That Don't Suck

The Slackers Guide To Last Minute Gifts That Don’t Suck

You guys, it is Christmas Eve. In years past we tend to get ahead of the game and knock things out the week after Thanksgiving. This year it just hasn’t been first on my list of things to do in the evening. Thank goodness for Amazon prime, even though the two day shipping has been […]

My Facebook Vacation

My Facebook Vacation & How It Changed My Daily Routine

You guys, I did something that I haven’t done in a very long time… I deleted Facebook from my phone. Say what? After the election my brain was fried and I couldn’t handle it anymore. I needed a Facebook vacation. Somehow Twitter & Instagram were cordial and relatively filtered from nastiness… Facebook on the other […]


#GIRLBOSS A Must Read Book For All Girls

For the last few years I’ve had friends recommend the book #GIRLBOSS over and over again. I bought the book and it’s been sitting in my Amazon account for awhile. After a year with very little reading done, I decided to pick up my Kindle again this Summer and get caught up. Unfortunately this thing […]

Christmas shopping is (finally) underway and we are planning our favorite Holiday traditions. It may be early December but this […]

Having Coffee With A Few Of My Favorite Bloggers

I think the thing I miss most about college is coffee dates with my friends. Okay there was that education thing too, but I’m just being honest here. After meteorology class Karissa and I would run to the coffee shop on campus for a hot chocolate (for her) and coffee (for me). It was short, […]

Holiday Coffee Flavors

Holiday Coffee Flavors That Are Pretty Much Amazing

While everyone else is off Black Friday shopping, I like to think of today as the first day of Holiday coffee. Yea, red cups have been out for awhile (I even had my first of the year the other night) but I usually try and save my first holiday coffee for the day after Thanksgiving. […]

My Winter Reading List

Last year I read 84 books. It was awesome. I visited so many characters lives and spent so much time enjoying reading. This year I’ve read 9 books. Oops. I could blame the pregnancy & a newborn, I could blame being exhausted all of the time or I could blame the fact that I’ve gotten […]
