Doing 7 Quick Takes with This Ain’t the Lyceum today because it’s Friday and it feels like a good way to close out the week! I did all sorts of adulting this week. The biggest accomplishment was getting the oil changed in my car and getting some safety recalls taken care of. I get to drive a loner while the recalls are being done and
And one month of 2017 already down. I can’t believe it’s February. We’re one month closer to spring though! And because it isn’t just the first of the month, but also the first Wednesday of the month, it’s time for a Currently post, hosted this month by Anne of In Residence and Erin from Teal and Polka Dots. Here are some Current happenings in our
This weekend was seriously just what the doctor ordered. I have been feeling such news fatigue, it is one of those situations where I want to stay informed, but at the same time, reading too much makes me go koo koo bananas. So, this weekend, in the name of self care I did myself a favor. I stepped away from social media a bit.
My loose goal this year is to read two books a month (if I can do more than that, awesome). I’ll have one book for book club each month and then one that I pick for myself. So, after reading a heavier read like Malala, I decided to let myself have fun with Anna Kendrick’s Scrappy Little Nobody. I am a fan of Anna Kendrick.
On Saturday I gathered with 100,000 of my close personal friends in downtown St. Paul for the Women’s March on Washington in Minnesota. I couldn’t believe the turnout – they expected around 25,000 to 30,000 people. I’m proud of my State for turning out in droves. I have many reasons I chose to march. My son’s future for one – his education, his environment, his
My book club ladies were talking about going and seeing Hidden Figures in the theater but the day they picked to go ended up not working out for me. As luck would have it, plans I had for my day off on MLK Day also fell through, so Jen asked if I wanted to go see that movie with her. My mom was already going
You guys. I have a huge confession to make. This is big. I cheated on Lularoe. And…..I liked it. GASP!!! So who is the evil temptress that has stolen me away? It’s a similar clothing company called Agnes and Dora. I had seen a review on a couple of blogs I follow and was very intrigued, so I started doing some research. It sounded very
As I’ve previously mentioned, one of my goals with my word of the year “purpose” is to read more this year. Turn off the TV, get off my phone and social media and just sit and read. I can read basic fluff or I can read books of substance, but I just want to read. My first book for 2017 is actually the first book
Two years ago this month I embarked on a little project. After years of a short pixie style I decided to grow my hair out in what I dubbed “Project Hair Grow.” When I started, I had no real vision, just decided I wanted to see how it would go. Then I found a style I wanted to work towards, kind of a medium bob.
I’ve talked a little bit about how Nate and I manage our finances and kind of “run our household” so to speak. We are not experts, we are still not perfect, but since we started using Traction in 2015 we feel like we have a better handle on “adulting” than we used to. The program strongly encourages that once a year you go on a
