Here Goes Nothin’…….

My very first blog post EVER. Considering I have so much to say on social media, I of course would be drawing a blank here. My Facebook is flooded with thoughts, ideas, stories that seem to flow off of my finger tips onto a screen with ease. I get a blog and……….*crickets*. Believe it or…

Vaginas and the things we put in them….

  I was 14 years old when I started my first period. I remember the day like it was yesterday. I woke up on a Sunday morning, went to the restroom and seen the massacre that had occurred in my underwear. I panicked. I went to scream for my mom, but she wasn’t home.  The…

Family Vacation, they said. It will be fun, they said…..

  **Disclaimer: I love my kids. Truly. Sometimes I look at them and wonder how something so cute, sweet and smart came from just an egg and one lucky sperm. And other times I look at them and immediately want to make them a Ward of the State (you can legally do this, I looked…

All I needed was some iceberg lettuce…..

I figured since my Mental Load blog post has all the women looking at their significant others with the hardest side eye EVER, I should do a light-hearted fun post about make-up.
