Let’s Talk About Ta-Tas: You Deserve a Great Bra!

When was the last time you bought yourself a nice bra? Not a Target clearance rack bra. Not a “pretty to look at, but impractical to wear” bra. A bra that loves your girls, lets you move and breathe while giving you the support you need. More than a year ago? And when was the […]

2015 Concert Bucket List

2015 Concert Bucket List

The term “bucket list” bugs me, but I use it because it’s the universal term for saying “stuff I want to do in life.” It started as “stuff I want to do before I die” and I thought it was a bit morbid once people were using it in things like “Summer Bucket List for […]

Tasty Tuesday: Pan Seared Sesame Green Beans

So, whenever I go out for happy hour with my girlfriends we love to order those fried green beans. They’re so crunchy and snack-able, and they go so well with beer and cocktails! But I always feel like crap when I eat stuff like that–and no, it’s not a hangover. Greasy, fried foods mess with […]

Minecraft Easter Ideas

Minecraft. Oh how I love you. You entertain my children for hours. You teach them about coding, building, cause and effect and how to deal with their emotions when a creeper comes and destroys their sheep farm. My boys have been addicted for years. Pretty much since the game’s release in 2011. My teen was an […]
