My Five Favorite Podcasts

I love to listen to podcasts in the car, when I am getting ready for work in the morning, or at work using my Bluetooth headphones. It's my way to catch up on current events, learn something new, or just block out my surroundings and concentrate on work. I listen to all my podcasts using … Continue reading My Five Favorite Podcasts


I Miss my Little People

Today I stayed home from work because I have had a migraine and stomach troubles. I thought being home alone with the children at their grandparents' house would be a chance to sleep, rest, and recharge, without the chaos of a three-year-old and a one-year-old running wild about the house. As I lay in bed … Continue reading I Miss my Little People

Pass the Coffee

Holy crap. Being a mom is tiring. I knew it would be, especially once we threw another kid into the mix- but damn. Ugh, pass the coffee, I'm running out of umph.

Taking Care of Yourself While Taking Care of Others

Out of all the people in the world, I think moms are the worst at taking care of themselves.

Usually it is unintentional, at … Continue reading Taking Care of Yourself While Taking Care of Others

Boom! BonLogic Shower Bombs

A couple weeks ago my sister Rachel and I were talking on the phone and I mentioned that I would love a massage (*hint, hint* sister who studied massage therapy) because I had some muscles on the right side of my neck and shoulders that have been painfully tight and causing headaches for weeks. She … Continue reading Boom! BonLogic Shower Bombs

Mom Confessions

8:00 p.m. bedtime comes early once in a while to same Mom's sanity. I'm not sure what we'll do when they learn to tell time. Sometimes I fake having to pee just so I can have a minute or two to myself. Sorry kid, most of your Halloween candy was eaten by me. You don't … Continue reading Mom Confessions

Experimenting With a Dirty Pour and my First Sale

Last summer I saw some videos on YouTube showing acrylic pouring. I found the videos fascinating to watch and really wanted to try a pour.

I did try it for the first time in November at the end of my maternity leave … Continue reading Experimenting With a Dirty Pour and my First Sale

Mom Needs a Vacation

Mom needs a vacation. Or maybe just fifteen minutes locked alone in the quiet bathroom. I will take what I can get. It seems lately I am one step away from losing my shit. I keep waiting for that one thing each day that will send me over the edge. If you see me sitting … Continue reading Mom Needs a Vacation

Modern Life

Last Sunday night I had a little time after Abby went to bed and was able to paint. It had been quite a while since I had last had a chance to, probably some time around Halloween.  It felt good to get my hands dirty (and boy, did I. The new gold paint I recently … Continue reading Modern Life
