10 Songs to Keep You Motivated & Inspired

Do you wake up in the morning to certain songs to get your day started? Do you have that special playlist of songs that spice up your day and keep you MOTIVATED and INSPIRED?

This Is Why We Plank

I’ve also always been the kind of person who gains 60-70 pounds per pregnancy. When I was a teenager and had my first kids, the weight came off fairly easily, leaving in its wake, even softer flesh and some gnarly stretch marks. When I had Monkey, the weight did not come off. Whatever. Weight, like age, is just a number. Right? I got rid of a TON of vintage cloths and fetish wear that I knew I would never fit in again. Bygones. Moving on. Plus, we had planned another baby. ...more

The Doctor who Drugged me and The people who Don’t listen.

I’m going to be vulnerable in this post. Again. I don’t enjoy these posts. I wish this part of me didn’t exist because it is so darn lonely and people just don’t seem to get it. In all the time I’ve struggled, I’ve had two people other than my husband willing to just shut their mouths and listen. My sister and my husband’s sister-in-law.I’m talking about mental illness....more

We all have undesirable traits and behaviors that we wish we had better control over. For me, pride is one of those things that I have struggled with, more so in my past but it still rears its ugly head from time to time, and each time it does, it’s a forceful reminder of the underlying evil nature of the enemy....more

The 10 Commandments of Grandparenting: Thou Shalt Follow Each, Grandma!

I don’t want to come off as ungrateful. I had a mom who was home from school when I got there, who checked my homework, and who tucked me in at night. She taught me how to bake and gave me an appreciation for everything that involved 15th to 17th century European court. We could spend hours on a snow day camped out on the couch, eating our freshly baked cookies and watching Jane Austen novels-turned-A&E specials. I understand how lucky this makes me. ...more
