Don't Quote The Raven

A 32-year old mom of two and wife of one. I blog. I love tattoos and snowboarding. I have a huge girl crush on Judge Judy and often quote Dr. Phil. People either love me, or they love me. There really is no in-between. 

Boat Races 2015

Basically, the boat races is my childhood. I'm 34 years old and I've attended the boat races for 33 years of my life. (There was that ONE time I thought it would it be best to skip the event...totally didn't turn out so well.) See, my mom grew up in the house on Riverhaven basically her whole life, and then she and my dad moved kittycorner (approx ....more

The Rehearsal Dinner

The rehearsal dinner for the Pischel wedding was held at my Grandpas house on the river and it was gorgeous. Weather was perfect, the taco bar was amazing and besides a little yellowjacket nest mishap (which got one three year old stung 8! times) the night was a huge success ....more

The Bachelorette Party

There was a most amazing wedding in the history of ever last weekend, but I'm gonna hold off on that and start with the bachelorette party....more

When Your Husband Turns 50

Lake Roosevelt for Rob's 50th I met Rob when I was 21 years old. Little 'ol waitress (who owned her own condo and paid her own bills, lest me not fail to mention) falls for the seven handicap golfer. Our love story is really like no other, but coming up on eleven years married, we are now that boring old married couple....more

When Satan Steals Your Motherhood

A photo I might not have normally kids dressed themselves and they don't look as "stylish" as I usually prefer and there's a little mess in the background...however look at their smiles! Their true, genuine, happy smiles! How tragic not to share this amazing photo just because it doesn't fit my image of the "perfect" mother ....more

And I Kept It All!

I've been receiving Stitch Fix to my doorstep now for almost exactly three years. You can see my first fix HERE (still one of my favorites to this day) and yet, I've never kept an entire box before. I would say 80% of the time I keep at least an item or two, but never took advantage of keeping the whole shebang ....more

Saved By The Bell? More Like Saved By Skimmies!

wearing my Jockey® Skimmies® Slipshorts In case you haven't heard, summer has arrived. Which means pool parties, playdates, water balloon fights, melty ice cream hands and late night bonfires. Ahh, the perks of being a mother of two little bats-in-the-belfry kids ....more

Basically The Most Amazing Coverup Ever

I live for a good cover up. And let's just get it out of the way that my bikini top was slipping off. I know in these pics it looks dangerously low but once I realized it, I had already changed back into my sweats and wasn't about to get all dolled up again for blogging purposes ....more

Proud To Be The Odd Mom Out

I've made no secret of the fact that I love everything Bravo. All the Real Housewives series (and I do mean all of them), Top Chef, Millionaire Matchmaker, etc. That TV station is the epitome of either a) what I want my life to be like or b) what I don't want my life to be like ....more
