“Thank you, Maxi Dresses, for helping me appear dressed up, as though I really made an effort, but making me feel as if I’m wearing a nightgown in public.  You are basically crotchless yoga pants, and I salute you.” –excerpt from “For the Love” By Jen Hatmaker I feel like nothing would better prepare you […]

Summer Reads

I love books. Ever since I can remember, bliss has been reading a good book with nothing important to do. My mom often remarks that the reason my eye sight is as bad as it is now is because of all of the reading I would do after she had told me to go to […]

Traveling With Children

I know I’ve already talked about the trips that my family plans to make this summer and that Chelsea has given us some great tips for traveling, but it’s a theme that keeps popping into my head. As our family of four gears up for a 15+ hour drive to Louisiana (in a Fiesta, no less), […]

Third Trimester Essentials

I thought it would be fun to share some of the things I’ve been loving as I settle into this third trimester of pregnancy. I mentioned it in my last post, but this pregnancy has been really different for me. I’m not sure I’m quite as tired as I was the first time around, but […]

I am the world’s WORST coupon clipper.  I admit it.  Actually I don’t really clip coupons at all.  I tried to use one coupon at the grocery store today (it was attached to the package of dog treats I was buying)……but it was expired.  Yep, that’s how talented I am with coupons.  If they are […]

Technology Rules

Friends, I am very sad right now. I’ve actually been sad for the last week and  a half. My iPhone managed to take a swim and I feel like I’ve lost one of my appendages. OK, OK! I’m exaggerating. I do feel like something is missing though. Maybe it’s the fact that my face isn’t […]
