An After Flood, House Renovation Tour


  **If the photos appear fuzzy, select the desktop view on your mobile device**   ****************** Now that we are expecting our third child, there is one question that I get asked, surprisingly, more often than “do you know what you are having? Do you have a name picked out?” and “are you going to

Breakfast Cookie UPDATE!


Hey, remember those SUPER easy breakfast cookies that I gave you the recipe for? The ones that were so easy to make that it was practically lying to say that I had baked them, but yet the kids absolutely loved them? Well, I made a few the other day (along with about 60 Pancake Muffins)….

Guess What I’m Cooking!


Ugh, so remember how excited I was that the computer error in my child support case got fixed? Well as it turns out, IT’S NOT FIXED. They are now intercepting 40% of it and have yet to be able to tell either myself or Mr. Attorney Man where it’s going. So frustrating!!! I’m all over

It’s My Weekend Yo!


Wow, it has been a BUSY day. First off, it started at 3:30am. I had a super creepy dream about my ex, so much so that I couldn’t fall back asleep because it had freaked me out so bad. By the time the kids got up I was so completely wired that I ran five

  • Seven Years Of Abandonment February 12, 2019
    Seven years ago today, my ex left. Seven. Years. It’s weird, how time moves. There are days when I think of him, and it feels like just yesterday he was still around. Like I could walk around the corner at the grocery store, and see a different husband standing by our cart. Or I could […]
  • I Don’t Always Fight In Ikea, Except For When I Do. January 8, 2019
    She came looking for a fight, so she got one. A few weeks ago I found myself standing in a tile shop, searching for tile to be used in our new kitchen back splash. We hadn’t yet closed on the house, but once we did, The Guy and I were going to try to bang […]
