Smile–Brilliantly.

I’ve got a thing about teeth. How about you? Are they deal breakers for you? They sort of are for me. I know, that should make no sense considering I married a hockey player but he has all of his. He did take a puck to the mouth about three months before our wedding, chipping... Continue Reading →

Diary of a C-Section Mama: Red Chucks

The epidural was done and the glorious drug was making a slow crawl through my body, numbing me from the waist down. Kurtis was nowhere to be found and I was lying on my back enjoying the warmth of all the blankets they’d brought for me in the ice cold operating room. The excitement of... Continue Reading →

Nailed It

I have a confession—I don’t like getting my nails done. I don't like it so much that I've perfected doing my own nails at home. I'm going to teach you how to as well--in case you're like me.

If you’ve browsed fashion magazines, followed an influencer, or caught any fashion campaigns, you’d know by now that combat boots were one of the hottest fall/winter trends. They exploded onto the scene and you won't see them disappearing anytime soon as we head into spring. They're versatile enough that you can transition them from straight-legged... Continue Reading →

Open Drawers

Let me paint a scenario… You’re tired. Like, really tired. You have solo parented for the past two weeks while your husband is working in another state. Your mind is like a chest of drawers and every single drawer is open—did I pay the gas bill, sign homework folders, need to practice math flash cards,... Continue Reading →

Welcome to the Gong Show

<!-- wp:cover  I was aimlessly scrolling Instagram stories the other night and came across the most perfectly executed story highlight of an influencer’s Sunday moment with scripture. There was spiritual music softly playing in the background, strategically highlighted sections of a Bible and a grammatically perfect  “random thought” that really struck her that morning....
