Where’s My Blue Flame?

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 […]

My Offering

My Offering

As I was riding in the car the other day, Ike Ndolo‘s song, Offering, popped up on Spotify.  As I listened with one ear and used most of my concentration supervising my teenaged chauffeur, one line really jumped out at me. Jesus, bread of life, bread […]

Giving Arbonne a Whirl

Giving Arbonne a Whirl

I’ll admit it.  I’m a bit of a serial monogamist when it comes to my skincare and makeup routines.  Every so often, I find that one amazing new product that I absolutely love and then it’s all I use for the next one to five […]

Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day!

Golly.  I look at that picture and how put-together we all appear and it makes me want to simultaneously laugh and cry. It makes me laugh because of how uncharacteristically serene we all seem!  Never, ever do I get all dolled up and sit sedately […]

Beauty Must-Haves for the Lazy Mama

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 Haiku

Laundry Haiku

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 […]

#Thisis40

#Thisis40

Today, I am 40 years old. Holy crap. How in the world did that happen, I ask you? Wasn’t I just traipsing across the stage as Dorothy in my high school’s production of Wizard of Oz? No? Right. That was 23 years ago. Maybe it […]
