It Never Gives Up

    Is this you? Have you been left? Are you constantly stumbling over that sharp lego of “Why?” Two years ago, I was left. I was left with two newly walking toddlers, no job, no money, and no hope. And then I picked up my devotional and every morning He reminded me that I…

Who Stole November?

Excuse me sirs and madams, but where the heck did November go? I feel like I was just making this list yesterday! It’s been a whirlwind of a month, but I suppose when you get busy getting busy, time flies. I accomplished so much, and I feel much more at peace today than I did…

It’s Okay Thursday!

It’s OKAY… * to eat alfredo sauce from a jar. (I dated a guy once who was all “You went to culinary school and you don’t make your own alfredo? That’s so lame. It’s easy to make!” and he was laughing at me. So I was all (pop) “Yeah, but this is easier!” and dumped…

Working Out Isn’t Working Out

Back in September, I began working out at school for a class. We had to complete 28 workouts during the course of the semester. It felt great going to the gym three times per week, but nothing was happening (i.e. no weight loss), and I got frustrated. So, I talked with the trainer and after…

50 Questions That Will Free Your Mind! {46-50}

I completely forgot to post this yesterday (Saturday). I’m so excited that I finished these questions though. I can mark one more thing off of my 101 list! To make up for it, I am double posting tonight. I did write yesterday just not on my blog, but this is my third year of NaBlo,…

Perspective: Not The Worst Day Ever

Most days we wake up and have a plan for the day. Your plan may be to wear pajamas all day and eat from the freezer, but that’s still a plan. As the day progresses, the plans change, things happen, and we roll with the punches. Some days are more stressful than others, but if…

Don’t cry. Don’t cry.

My little Molly, she’s such a sweetheart. Anytime Lily throws a tantrum, bumps her head, loses her toy, or gets upset, Molly now says, “Don’t cry. Don’t cry.” in the sweetest little two year old voice. How ironic that it chokes me up every time. Today I came home from school, emotionally exhausted from a…

50 Questions That Will Free Your Mind! {41-45}

41. If you knew that everyone you know was going to die tomorrow, who would you visit today? A therapist for some Xanax. Some of these questions can be so depressing. I would obviously visit my family, and if I had the chance to see my friends, I would visit them, too. This is a…

Food Fodder: Protein Pancakes {and Clean Eating!}

  This was probably not a great choice of days to start clean eating, but baby steps are fine with me. I feel like I took two giant leaps today anyway, so the fact that I’m going out to dinner tonight with my friend Jenn feels a little bit like a reward.  We’re not going…

It’s Okay Thursday!

  It’s OKAY: * that you made fun of me in middle school. You’re bald, with yellow teeth, and look 40 at 30. Bummer for you! * to eat pumpkin pie at 10 pm. * to be sad that Breaking Amish is over. * and excited that Sister Wives is starting. * and to still…
