Mr. Coffee 1, Hot Mess 0

About every Mother’s day (that’s Sunday, May 12th gentlemen. Don’t worry, you didn’t miss calling your mom), Mr. Coffee decides it’s a good time to die. I don’t know what it is around Mother’s day, perhaps he didn’t have a good relationship with his mother? I don’t know. So to my delight, Mother’s day came… Continue reading Mr. Coffee 1, Hot Mess 0

Hygge and Fighting Seasonal Affective Disorder

Seasonal Affective Disorder (or SAD) is a bitch; not gonna lie. I have depression already but then throw on an extra layer of SAD and you want to blow your brains out. Ok, I don’t want to blow my brains out. Perhaps the statement, blow my brains out, was inappropriate. Sorry. Anyway, I heard about… Continue reading Hygge and Fighting Seasonal Affective Disorder

2nd Annual What I Want for Christmas

My Christmas list last year worked out pretty well with the exception of my sister finding my blog (love you!) and using my Christmas list to communicate to me that she knew about my blog. I was just too dumb to see the connection until she had placed this in my stocking: So if I… Continue reading 2nd Annual What I Want for Christmas

One Great Monday!

I know…I know….I’m a real ass hole for suggesting a Monday to be “great”. Usually, I’d rate Monday’s between soul-sucking, all the way up to “meh”. But no, seriously, today was a great Monday! I Don’t Believe the Scales So I hit the scales in my bathroom. As every Monday goes, I disrobe, take off… Continue reading One Great Monday!

Well, Ikea is Wrong!

After a horrible flood a few years back, we are finally remodeling our basement again. Back in July, we bought a sofa from Ikea but it sat in our garage. Until now…. My husband and sons hauled it to the basement after the carpet was installed. My husband and my sister’s boyfriend put this monstrosity… Continue reading Well, Ikea is Wrong!

Hot Mess Plays Dodgeball

To say I’m athletic is to say that the John Legend and Chrissy Teigen holiday special was magical. Both are a lie and it’s ok to accept it. This is the second dodgeball game I’ve attended. First with my oldest and now my youngest (9-years-old) had his this evening. It’s held in their gym and… Continue reading Hot Mess Plays Dodgeball

Inappropriate Elf on the Shelf Pics

When my good friend NC sent the following to me yesterday….. I knew it was about that time of the year to profess my utter disdain of the Elf on the Shelf. I thought our elf, Zipper had spent his last year taunting me as I was prepared to confirm with my youngest that Santa… Continue reading Inappropriate Elf on the Shelf Pics

Why Do Weddings Cost So Much?

I’m sure this post is going to go over well for hopeful twenty and thirty-somethings who dream of their fairytale wedding. Perhaps that’s why my husband and I haven’t been invited to one in over a decade. But then again, we aren’t at that point in our lives where friends are getting married. We’re at… Continue reading Why Do Weddings Cost So Much?

Review Time! An App That Pays You Money!

In the fall, my co-worker told me about the ibotta app. Like most app recommendations, I never take it seriously. I’ll even download the app and it will sit there unused, until I delete it. That’s exactly what happened until about 2 weeks ago. And friends, I’ve been leaving money on the table. I don’t… Continue reading Review Time! An App That Pays You Money!
