House Update

Image via Pinterest.  Kinda, sorta what our house might look like someday. Happy Monday!  It’s been almost a month since I have shared a house update and a lot has happened!  Well, a lot has happened and nothing has happened.  Building a house is a long, unexpected road, y’all!  Let me explain… In my last house update (HERE), I shared our plans with you and that they were at the city getting the permit so we could start the work.  Well, that was a month ago…and still nothing has been done on the house.  We were thrown a pretty big curveball that set us back quite a bit, and honestly had us wondering if we were even going to move […]

One Shirt, Two Ways

Happy Monday!  Did everyone have a good weekend?  Mine was SO low key, I loved it.  The older I get, the more of a homebody and less social I become.  There is not much I love more than just chilling at home in my sweats with a glass of wine (and probably a puzzle) #thisis37.  I literally didn’t leave the house on Saturday!  I did super boring stuff like cleaned out my bathroom drawers, the pantry (we had cans of soda that expired in 2014 lol), and switched my closet from fall to spring (which always turns into purging, so I’m taking another load of stuff to JT Posh soon!). A couple life updates… I’m still going strong on the […]

Thirty Seven Things

Today is my birthday and I’m 37 YEARS OLD. I don’t know why that sounds so old, but it does.  I AM NOW OFFICIALLY IN MY LATE 30s.  I seriously have a huge fear of turning 40.  Getting older as a woman is tough.  Everything changes, and it changes fast.  I can barely drink because if I do, my hangovers are unbearable.  I get SUPER sore working out.  My back aches.  I have wrinkles and sun spots and it’s harder every year to stay skinny.  But on the other hand, I’ve never been happier or more confident in my life.  It’s weird because as I have gotten older, even as I have lost the beauty of my youth, as I […]
