Shopping and Saving This Christmas

I’ve got this love hate thing going on with Christmas shopping. I love getting a good deal, but I don’t want to feel like I spent my whole season hunting for the lowest prices. But on the contrary, it’s against my nature to just buy what I need and disregard that it may go on …

My Mini Guide to Black Friday

Before the turkey is even cold, people will be out shopping for Black Friday (Thursday?) deals. We can all agree that we don’t like the infringing on the Thanksgiving holiday. But some may also agree that the hustle and bustle of Christmas shopping is so much fun! I’d be lying if I said I haven’t …

What I’ve Learned From My Jeans

Since the cool weather has finally hit here, it was time to put away summer strappy shoes and sun dresses for the season. But when I approached my closet it threatened to swallow me whole if I didn’t clean up. My overwhelming amount of jeans were staring me in the face and I admit, there …

My Review of Fit Vine Wine

Well nobody could give me a personal review on Fit Vine wine, so I HAD to go buy some to see for myself. I knew that Whole Foods carried it, so hanging onto Amazon’s promise that the prices would be lower now, I found my $15 bottle of wine. Hmmm. That’s a little more than …

How do I choose bravery over fear?

I’ve been thinking a lot about fear lately. How the older I get the more things that instill fear in me. In my early 20’s I snorkeled in deep water and LOVED it. Loved being surrounded by water and sea creatures that could only be seen up close because of the swim I’d made. Now, …

Seasons in Life

Since I recently wrote about missing the baby and toddler years and being so busy with our schedule, I began reminding myself of how blessed I really am. I do this when I get on my pity pot about something. I whine and complain and then a little voice gives me this annoying pep talk …

First Day of School Feelings

I’m feeling all the feelings this morning as the kids go back to school. We were all ready for today. Summer freedom was turning to boredom, turning to let’s all bicker with each other instead. This family needed some space. Great summer memories and time together but looking forward to a change. Now the house …
