Odds & Ends
Oh, my friends, my friends. There has been so much happening around the Williby homestead lately! It’s been a lot of driving here there and everywhere with a hefty side of teenagers be crazy and a soupcon of Mama’s losing her dang mind. BUT! That […]
The “Joys” of Being 41
I am 41 years and 3-ish months old and I’m kind of over it, thanks. Turning 40 was freaking amazing. I really, truly mean that 100%. There was this awesome party! People go out of their way to tell you happy birthday, you look fantastic, […]
Where’s My Blue Flame?
Last month, in my own personal read-a-thon of sorts, I read One Beautiful Dream. This book by ingenious Catholic author and radio show host Jennifer Fulwiler certainly gave me a lot to think about! Now, if you follow Catholic Twitter or Instagram at all, you’ll have seen […]

Trendsend Review #1 — Shoot for the Stars!
This month, I jumped on the subscription box bandwagon when I signed up for Trendsend by Evereve. I love clothes and looking cute, but shopping is kind of a pain. Conditions have to be pretty much perfect for me to actually go anywhere, shop for, […]
Beauty Must-Haves for the Lazy Mama
Hair & Makeup Must Haves! There are two things you may or may not know about me. I am high maintenance with my hair and makeup, but I like a simple look. I tend to be rather lazy. Yeah, I know. It’s a strange dichotomy. […]
Laundry. Bane of every mom’s existence. Unending source of work. A job that can literally never get done. This is the job that never ends… Seriously. Unless you and your family are going to run around completely naked for a couple of days (which, believe […]
