Adulting is Hard

For the last six months or so my husband and I have talked, and thought, and planned, and questioned, and talked, and looked, and thought, and talked some more. Do we put money into our house and stay or do we find a new house and go?

Food and Forty

My birthday is this weekend. I’m hoping to go out to dinner and I’d prefer sushi but I wouldn’t say no to a steak. Actually, I wouldn’t say no to Mexican food, Chinese food, or a gorgeous piece of lasagna. I’m going to want bread, an appetizer, and dessert (mmmm…crème brulee). And I’ll need at least one bottle of wine for the table. For my husband’s birthday in March we indulged on dinner at a very expensive steak house. We ate too much food, spent too much money, and enjoyed every bite. I simply love food. My husband and...

She wanted to dance. Of course, she loves it. Fast forward to spring and we are preparing for her dance recital. Money has been falling out of my wallet at an ever quickening pace as I pay off the rest of...

My Top 5 “Are You Kidding Me?” Parenting Moments

Parenting is HARD. If I had to go back and tell my pre-parent self anything about parenting it would be that it is so freaking hard. It’s also incredibly gross and unbelievably exhausting. I’ve been a parent for over 13 years and I’ve definitely had my share of “Oh My God did that really just happen?” parenting moments. Now that my children are growing older I’ve found less of these moments and more “Oh My God this is pure hell” moments. Big kids, big problems, right? Anyway, on a recent date night with my husband we took some time to...
