So many adventures. So few times.

My life is pretty dull. I play with a toddler, watch a lot of Yo Gabba Gabba and experiment with the crock pot. I have no bed time and I find humor in Laffy Taffy jokes. Conan O'Brien is my anti-drug.

Annual holiday truths

This is my brutal truth:

I have no ideas for anyone for Christmas. Like, literally no one. My mom. My husband. My own children.
No one.

I don’t want to do this.

Can we just fast forward a few months so I don’t have to deal with the anxiety and pressure of cleaning and decorating and cooking and wrapping?! I’m hyperventilating and feel like my only identity right now is servant and my head hurts and I just can’t. If I give 100% of myself at school (which is apparently not enough and I need to somehow move faster and do more and be more and expect less… somehow), and 100% of myself to my family who think I’m insane or just feeling sorry for myself, and 100% to all the people in my life and 100% to maintaining a household and where is there room to breathe?! I don’t have balance. I don’t even know what balance looks like. I have several unfolded laundry baskets and dirty hair and dust everywhere and clutter and 12 things to return to Amazon, but no balance. 

And I have people I love dearly who are struggling. People who are dealing with far more than they should ever have to in a lifetime. And I feel as though I can’t help; I can’t lend a shoulder or an ear or a hand to help because I’m drowning and my own life vest is floating out to sea.

Homecoming, but make it chic

I’m obsessed with these new Ugg boots I scored over the summer for $40, but I stubbed one of my big toes hard a few days ago and my dogs are already barking!

Miiiiight just go ahead and switch into granny shoes early today!

Outfit change!

Ugh. Hard pants are overrated so I switched up everything… but the shirt.
My witches shall stay. 

OOTD - spoopy season edition

I struggle with dressing this time of year - my work room is toasty warm all the time, most classrooms are cold. The day is starting out crisp (it’s 45 degrees at 8:30 am) but will reach the low 70s today. 

Just the same, it’s spoopy season and I’m here for it!

Adventures in Microblading

I did something a bit out of character today: I had my eyebrows done. Okay, people have been doing this regularly for ages, but I’m not people. This was WAY out of my comfort zone! Just the same, I had multiple people singing the praises of Danielle at Bare Ink in Delavan, WI. Close to home, beautiful results, Saturday appointments… I was ready to finally jump in.

πŸ‘†πŸ» Stop sign selfie, trying to not vomit from nerves.

πŸ‘†πŸ» Let’s be honest: I’m freaking the hell out.

πŸ‘†πŸ»Numbing powers, activate! Form of… Saran Wrap!

πŸ‘†πŸ» First round was absolutely pain free. At most it felt like I was being tapped with a dull stick.

πŸ‘†πŸ»This was about 10 minutes after the work was complete! The whole procedure was about 2 hours from when I walked into the adorable shop near Delavan Lake.

πŸ‘†πŸ» 90 minutes post-service. Very little seepage, super happy with the shape. I’ll keep updating with the results as my brows heal.

A Plea, & OOTD

IT ISN’T A CAUSE FOR SHAME. Stop telling your daughters you need to diet. Stop telling your girls you are too fat to do something. Stop telling yourself your body isn’t where it should be.


My daughter is effected. Your daughter is, too. They hear these things, they are listening. I hang out with 5th grade girls every day - I promise, they are listening more than you think.
