What Is Tully About? More Than You Might Realize. The Deeper Layers No One Else Is Talking About

So you now the movie Tully that’s out right now? If you’re a mom, and/or part of mom groups, you’ve probably seen the movie discussed. The trailers show a slightly humorous depiction of the hard times of early motherhood. Then a night nanny is hired. Overall it looks like a kind of sweet, emotional, realistic tribute to motherhood. Right? 

But maybe a blogger you follow criticized the twist of the movie, stating that Read more…

My Clothing Dreams Finally Happened! ThredUp Goody Box Review

Ok, sorry to be an annoyingly-over-excited-about all-the-things blogger here for a moment – you know I now strive for authenticity and honestly in everything I write – but I actually am excited about doing this ThredUp Goody Box review post. 

If you’ve been around while, you’ve seen me post ThredUp reviews before. It’s pretty much where I buy most of my clothes.
a) I like being sustainable and reusing instead of buying new.
b) I like saving money.
c) I’m totally fine not being at the super tiptop of fashion.

How To Know When You’re Done Having Kids

Nearly a decade ago, KP and I become open to starting a family. It took us, however, 2 years of trying before I got pregnant with my first child. Once during that time, when my life was measured in fertility cycles and single pink lines, I tried to image myself in a future time of life, at the end of family building.

There I was, deeply longing for the fulfillment of the fertility I believed I was supposed to have – how could I ever long for its cessation? The thought was impossible to imagine. 

But now? Almost 10 years later?
Now I have three kids. And I am D.O.N.E. 
I think?

April 2018 Date Night In Box Review – Easy Like Sunday Morning

Before I get to this Date Night In box review, I have a confession: every time I hear the song Easy Like Sunday Morning by The Commodores, I think of the movie Baby Driver. If you haven’t seen Baby Driver, I highly recommend. It’s not just a bank heist/car chase movie, it’s got a magical score and every cut is spot on. For real. Here, watch this 6-min opening clip on youtube. You’ll be hooked. Even if you don’t typically like action films (which I usually don’t either). You might even end up buying the soundtrack too. 

Sorry, going off on a tangent here. Back to my Easy Like Sunday Morning Date Night In Box Review! Read more…

2017 Ultimate Bundles Genius BLOGGERS TOOLKIT Review

I’ve been reviewing the Ultimate Bundles for awhile now, but I’d stayed away from doing an Genius Bloggers Toolkit review (you might also hear it called the Ultimate Blogging Bundle review or Ultimate Bloggers Toolkit review) because, well, because there’s SOOOO many bloggers out there blogging about blogging now, and I’m not really interested in […] Read more…
