The Harris Life

I am a part-time working, part-time SAHM to two precious girls, Rory and Ryder. They are precious but major stinkers- always getting into mischeif and keeping my blog material flowing.

brought to you at 2:48am

Want to know what is so awesome and not creepy at all????? Waking up to the distinct sound of a child running through the house, saying “hi” in a whisper voice, then disappearing. I was just laying in bed waiting on a kid to start climbing in the bed because I was woken up to footsteps and heard “hi” ....more

June Ipsy Glam Bag Review

So I haven’t done an Ipsy review since my first one probably because I am the worst blogger on the face of the planet right now. I got my Ipsy bag in the other day and I really liked it! None have been as good as the first one, but I still am really enjoying this subscription ....more
