    My Tattoo

    Getting A Tattoo - My Experience

    In High School, most people called me a “goody-goody”.

    Not in a “she’s so sweet and good” kind of way, but more in a “Gahhh, why does she have to be such rule follower” kind of way. (more…)

    5 Things I Wish I’d Known Before My Child Started Kindergarten

    5 Things I Wish I'd Known Before My Child Started Kindergarten by

    When I got pregnant, everyone and their brother gave me advice about what I should and should not do with a baby in my belly.

    “No caffeine.”

    “Don’t eat lunch meat.”

    “Limit your workout routine.”

    Then when I had a newborn, I was given opinion after opinion on how to handle diapers and nap time and breastfeeding. I was told to never let a child “cry it out” and that my boobs would essentially “never be the same”.

    There’s Snow In My Pants


    My days tend to be ordinarily pretty routine. I don’t like a lot of change when it comes to my exciting monotonous schedule. Throw in a kids doctors appointment or a bookkeeping meeting with my CPA…and my whole week is backwards.

    It’s wake up at 5:45 am, quickly throw my knotted nest of hair in the tightest ponytail possible, grab a sports bra, pop in the 21 day fix DVD, sweat and curse the insanely-fit-rock-hard-abs instructor making me doing 60 straight seconds of burpees followed by 60 seconds of weighted lunges…repeat, finish my 30 minutes of morning hell bliss, wake up the kids who aren’t already awake, jump in the shower – typically with a toddler in tow, dress myself…and each kid…even the seven year old HATES picking out his own clothes, make a healthy shake and breakfast for the kids – which tends to be a pop tart or microwavable pancakes – I keep it classy, rush out the door to take them all to school, come home, plop myself in front of the computer AND…..
