If you're like me, one giant question races through the mind: How am I going to occupy my children so they aren't consumed … [Read more...]

What Did We do Before Flat Irons?

I've only been using a flat iron for say 5 years or so and just started thinking, what did women do before flat irons? Up until I had children my hair was always straight as can be so there wasn't a need for a flat iron. But now that I use one, I can't imagine not having it.

My pregnancies were incredibly easy and to be honest, if children didn't require so much of me, I'd probably have about three more.  I hear horror stories about pregnancy and I totally can't relate because mine were so easy.  It's … [Read more...]

Ever Feel Like Just Packing Up and Moving Away?

I do!  Most of the time actually.  Sometimes being so close to most of your family isn't a good thing because they start to get on your nerves.  Did I really just write that?  Let's just hope they aren't reading right now :) Since I've been married I've moved a total of 3 times all without the help of any moving services.  Would I do it again? … [Read more...]
