A few weeks ago my sister sent me a private message through Pinterest. We’d been watching an old series on Hulu (it was from way back in 2000, you know, when we thought iced lip gloss and metallic pleather was amazeballs) and getting a kick out of one of the mean-girl characters and her relentless devotion… Continue reading Turning 30…
It’s time. My Instagram posts are getting ridiculously long. One picture is never enough. I’m no good at hashtags. I promised my sister. I need to write again. There’s a few reasons I’ve revived the blog, but the catalyst was receiving the images from my maternity shoot with Tangled Roots Photography. When I found out… Continue reading New Beginnings
It’s been one of those days. One of those days that ends with me pouring chocolate chips into my mouth with my only free hand, balancing Harrison on my hip with the other, one of his hands reaching for the chocolate chip bag and the other ripping my hair out. Oh, love hurts. Even if… Continue reading The Crazy Coupon Lady…that’s me
I’m always inspired by the promise of a new year. I am that person, the one that jumps out of her Christmas sweater and into something sparkly, who forces a “celebration” on tired family members because darn it, I will feeI deprived if there isn’t some kind of corny, ode-to-the-past champagne toast and faux enthusiastic… Continue reading Aaaaand We’re Back!
Our little miracle joined the world last Friday, July 25th. It was a fight for both of us, but he arrived in perfect health, weighing in at a healthy 7lbs 3oz and 20 3/4 inches. We are in love, still overwhelmed by this ultimate gift. It’s still hard for me to comprehend that Sam and… Continue reading Boomtown Baby!
This post comes a few months late. Blame it on the pregnancy hormones, but my motivation to do anything besides work, cook, clean and make time to sit in bed and watch Netflix is seriously diminished. I started writing this a loooong time ago- I can’t even remember when. Now, it is summer (EVEN HERE!)… Continue reading Springtime in Boomtown, USA
Our beyond amazing wedding photographer took this photo. I feel like I have the most wonderful, dreamy life every time I look at it. The days just fly by out here. I wake up, go to work, and the next thing I know it is January 20th. How did that happen? Yesterday was the… Continue reading Day Dreams
The picture is fuzzy and we have loose insulation and empty propane tanks making us look super classy, but Sam was squinting (the snow was blowing into his eyes) in all the other ones and if life were perfect here I wouldn’t have a blog. Right? Taken this morning before I trekked off to work.… Continue reading Trailer Living: Trial and Triumph
A picture from yesterday. The sun and snow combination is blinding and exhilarating. I love it. This is what happens when two mildly impulsive people marry each other. You find yourself in the salsa aisle of the grocery store buying queso and a huge bag of tortilla chips (down the chip aisle- why are these… Continue reading Snow and Queso
You know those days where nothing goes quite right, and it seems like every tiny little task becomes an enormous inconvenience? I have those days a lot. So much in fact, that I’ve really struggled with major anxiety these past few months. Randomly, I become aware that I’m bottling up so much negative anticipation that… Continue reading mud and miracles…it’s been quite the week in the oil patch
