Action Plan to a Better Me

When I look in the mirror, I don’t recognize myself these days. I look dull, shabby, tired. Maybe it’s being spit up on daily by an 8-month-old, non-napping, not interested in solids, teething baby, but I feel like I need a change. I’m in a rut and I need to get back to the me […]

Today, I Should Have Been Fired

I should’ve been fired today. To start with, I woke up late because I’ve gotten in the habit of hitting the snooze button. My three-year-old is convinced that there’s monsters in her room, and likes to inform of us of their whereabouts every 2-3 hours throughout the night. This meant that I was five-snooze-buttons-tired, rather […]

Beginners Guide to Backyard Chickens

We raised our first chicks about 6-years-ago after buying our first home. It had an adorable old shed that would quickly and easily translate into a chicken coop for the babes we picked out just before Easter, cause what’s better than fuzzy chicks at Easter!? We researched the breeds and needs of our chicks-to-be to […]

Behind Every Good Mom is a Man Who Does the Dishes

There is nothing I hate more than waking up to a sink full of dirty dishes. It sets the tone for the whole day and it’s almost as if the dishes are mocking me when I come down the stairs and see them sitting there waiting to be cleaned. “Oh you need a knife to […]

I don’t like schedules

I don’t like schedules. There. I said it. My daughter has never had much of a schedule. Wake up time, snack time, lunch time, nap, bedtime? Nope. Truth be told, we have “somewhat” of a schedule around our house. Compared to friends we run on the type of schedule you might see in Barcelona. A […]
