Bra Review: Panache Cari

I recently purchased the Panache Cari Spacer bra for wearing under tee-shirts as its billed. I bought the champagne color and I thought it would be a great bra for this purpose. I anxiously awaited its arrival. Living in Florida, I need a light-weight bra that doesn’t have seams and is perfect to wear under…

Friday Work Wear

Casual Friday! Today, I had planned on meeting with a potential sponsor for my nonprofit so I wore more work-appropriate attire than I typically would for a Friday. Around my office, Fridays are casual. Company tee shirts and jeans with sneakers are usually the go-to. My meeting fell through but I’m still comfortable wearing what…

Just a Normal Tuesday

It’s just a normal day around here. I stayed a little later at my house to greet the deck builder and see what he has in mind for our addition. Then I spoke to the orthodontist to make a second opinion appointment for my youngest because braces are fun. And now I’m sitting at my…

Leopard Pony Hair Booties

I honestly wasn’t sure if I’d ever wear these. They’re too fabulous and out-there for me, or so I thought. My husband bought them for me for Christmas last year and I loved them right away but also thought they brought too much attention to me. I don’t enjoy the limelight, typically. I used to,…

Minnesota Winter Lasts Forever

Well, it’s negative 10 degrees today in the Twin Cities and Mama is just about over this freakin’ cold. Okay, I’m seriously over it. I won’t lie, it has done a number on my psyche this year. (Currently, I am not earning anything off the links I am supplying here. These are not affiliate links.)

Big Boobs: Bras That Fit and a ThirdLove Review

If you’re like me, you’re a woman who has searched her entire life for the best fitting bra. Well, maybe not your entire life, but certainly since you started buying your own bras, not the training bras your Mama bought you. I know that you’ve probably been inundated with the ThirdLove bra ads on social…

Getting Back to Yourself: Mama Edition

I have an affinity for this subject, finding oneself. And maybe the reason is that I have felt so lost on so many days of my motherhood that I didn’t know where to go. I didn’t know who to turn to, or what to even say to my husband. I wasn’t sure who I was…

My Mother Was Stolen

Our lives changed the day she got her diagnosis. I wasn’t so young that I wasn’t aware of what it meant, but I was quite certain she would beat it. A young girl of 16 doesn’t see death coming. I was more interested in boys, friends, and band. I wasn’t worried about my mom. She…

Kut From the Kloth Jeans Are My BFF

My intentions are to do one or two of these style posts a week, but you know what they say about intentions and the road to Hell. Because I’m a bit of a hot mess some days (most days), you may have to disregard the mess in the backgrounds of my photos. I’m not one…

4 Hours Shopping

I went shopping the other day. Without the kids. I was out of the house for about 4 hours and it. was. glorious. Now, don’t get me wrong. I absolutely love my children, and I love spending time with them. But a mama needs some retail therapy now and again. Y’all know it’s true. So,…

Stitch Fix Me

As many of you know, I had my first experience with Trunk Club a couple weeks back. It was pretty fun, but probably not for me as the prices are a bit too high, unless of course you don’t mind spending $200 on a pair of jeans. Because I’m not made of money and as…

Valium, MRIs, and Wife of the Year

Here’s the funny thing about life: It can knock you down and lift you up in a heartbeat.  This week, I had a little situation with an MRI.  I had to go have a breast MRI on both breasts and I was a little freaked out.  My mom died of breast cancer at the age…

Life Lessons For My Daughter

A few days ago, I began to think about my daughter starting Kindergarten soon. Tomorrow, in fact.  I’m concerned that because we’ve kept such a tight reign on her social life (meaning who she’s allowed to hang out with) that she will come home with either an attitude we can’t stand, or saying things we…
