DIY Photos on Wood: A Great Way to Class Up Your Memories

Processed with Moldiv

Over the weekend, HH and I had a rare morning without the children so were able to sit down in a coffee shop and relax. HH noticed some very cool art on the walls that consisted of little more than roughly a dozen small square pictures mounted on wood. I instantly fell in love and thought to myself, “I can do that!” So I’m going to show you what I did. I’ve NEVER worked with any of the tools/supplies I’m using here before today so...

The Debbie Downers Were Right. I’m Not Closing On My House Today.

closing1

I’m warning you: my fingers are angry. Expletives galore up in this bitch today. So many people told me not to schedule those appliance deliveries yet. They couldn’t wait to tell me the horror stories of how their closing was delayed five times or for six months. But I wanted to be positive. No, I NEEDED to be positive. Others...

An Exercise in Saying Nice Things About Yourself

Trolls on the internet like to call me a “narcissist” or “histrionic.” Those are their two favorite words to describe me. But the actual licensed therapist I see says that’s total bullshit and thinks it’s pretty stupid for strangers to accuse someone of having a personality disorder just because they don’t like them. It just makes them sound foolish. I...

T-Minus 10 Days Until Closing…

I apologize in advance, but I predict that the only thing I’ll be able to talk about / think about / write about over the next month is our impending home purchase. It’s basically one of the biggest things I’ve ever done besides growing and birthing humans, and y’all know I couldn’t shut up about those events. At least this...

Sometimes the expenses that people pay from month to month can vary greatly. Their paycheck may not always cover those expenses. These can be things like a medical bill or a larger than usual insurance payment. If these bills are not paid on time, they can pile up, as can the charges associated with a late or delinquent payment.To avoid...

Empty Boxes, Heavy Heart.

So, we’re moving. Supposedly. I mean, that’s the plan. We have a house. We put a offer on one, had our inspection, negotiated repairs, and are officially moving forward. We have loan approval (conditionally, ya know, as long as we sign all the right papers) and our closing date is on track for December 15th. In the mind of our...

Two Thanksgiving Recipes Your Family Will Go Nuts For

Pumpkin-tiramisu

Alright, you guys know I’m not a food blogger so this is not going to be all professional and whatnot. This is just me telling you that I make two thanksgiving dishes that the people in my life go totally nuts for. Y’all know that I’m not much of a domestic goddess and I never aspire to be, so these...

The Things You’ve Seen Me Through…

thanks

It’s hard to feel like “The Feminist Breeder” when I’m done breeding and most of the time I’m too busy/overwhelmed to let myself get my feminist panties in a bunch over some misogynistic bullshit. Mostly all I talk about anymore is stuff going on in my life. MY life. Not the life of feminists or breeders. But my very own...
