The other day I saw a commercial making light of an extremely serious and destructive “hobby” that more and more women are participating in. I couldn’t stop thinking about it throughout the day and I began to feel compelled to share my thoughts on the subject. Although those thoughts are important, and we’ll get to them, a bigger message w
I happened to jump on the summer bandwagon a little late this year; I only just bought a swimsuit last week! I absolutely love summer though, and considering that here in Phoenix our summers are filled with 110°+ days, I needed a swimsuit ASAP if I wanted to step outside of my lovely air conditioned house. When I was a teenager I remember totally scoffing at the
The other day, David, myself and our two toddlers were sitting in our car in a Starbucks drive through. Things had gotten pretty tense and frustrating. The driver’s side window was down, Blake (2) was screaming loudly, Logan (3) was antagonizing him, and at one point I reached back, gave one of them a little swat and yelled as well.

Hey guys! I wanted to show you this awesome tutorial I found on YouTube. I’m a huge fan of the up and coming artist, Karmin. I was browsing their videos and saw a few hair tutorials by Amy (from Karmin). My two favorites are Amy’s hair curling tutorial (because the curls look so amazing and natural) and her awesome mohawk tutorial. As soon as I saw it

Happy Labor Day folks! I hope you all are enjoying yourselves and doing something super fun. Today we’re just hangin around the house and relaxing. Yesterday David and I hiked Camelback Mountain, so we are totally drained. More on that later!
