Non Compliance and Conversation Pieces

Today is the day you all get to kick me. I’ve fielded all the questions of “why” and the only thing I can tell you (which will make sense later on) is that I wasn’t thinking of myself. Monday did not turn out at all the way I wanted it to. I had a very […]

Play out the boredom with Pley

This week I had to ground Peanut for reasons that aren’t important. I took away his tablet and ipod, laid down the no gaming, no tv, no digital anything laws. Like any good mom would, I supplied him with a list of things he could do while he was grounded, including a number of chores. […]

Things I probably should’ve told you about sooner

If there were awards for the worst communicator in 2015, I think I’d probably be a shoe-in. I haven’t exactly held up my end of the bargain in regards to being personal and keeping people in the loop around here. However in my defense (I prepared a defense), 2015 did not start or end the […]

Santa Claus, the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future and I all walked into a bar

This christmas has been so different from past years that I don’t know where to begin. I was ready for Christmas in record time this year (which should’ve been my first red flag) – I wasn’t last minute shopping or picking up endless stocking stuffers. There was also no running out for last minute gift […]

How do YOU knitflix?

I do not consider myself a trendsetter. I suppose being that I work in digital media and content creation I am always in the know of new trends as it relates to business or social media but when it comes to my personal life and hobbies? Not so much. I like what I like, and […]

And then I was never so thankful for computers because if this were paper I would’ve cried all over it

Night number two of no sleep. The east coast is awake and if I were there, I’d be on my way to the office because this is Thursday. Instead, I’ve given up on any chance of sleeping. I have so much to say and no idea where to start. I guess I’ll start with what nags […]

Eating and shopping on the Kenai Peninsula

Now that we’ve lived here in Alaska for a couple of months, I have been able to establish a base for where a large portion of the money is going. I bet it comes as no surprise that the biggest money suck is food but food has always been one of the biggest chunks of […]

The Soft Utility Tote by Thirty-One Gifts makes me weak in the knees

I have a weakness for tote bags. I no longer carry purses and a clutch just doesn’t seem to cut it. Totes are versatile. They fit everything. They are stylish, functional and cute. They are my bae. When we moved I had to make hard choices about some of my totes. Some of them did not make the cut. […]
