Life lately.

We’re just gonna have a little chat today, hmm k? I feel like I should update you with what’s been going on in ma life so you know that it’s not all cupcakes and rainbows over here. That we all struggle in our own ways and deal with it differently. But I’m doing it! And despite the anxiety setbacks over the past few weeks, I’m keeping my eye on the prize. Moving HOME to Ohio.

I’ve sucked at the whole gym and eating healthy thing. I was doing SO well for awhile but I fell off the wagon in the beginning of May when all of the chaos started. I went to GA, got Shingles, went to NC, my intern was here, and then we found out we were moving 3 weeks early. I hate that I haven’t been doing my best and taking care of myself but right now, I’m just in survival mode. I know things will get back on track once we’re settled so I’m trying to cut myself some slack.

I’ve officially registered N for Kindergarten, signed him up for soccer, and signed little lady up for dance! I’m still in the process of signing them up for swimming lessons, finding a new gym, and finding a preschool for Lady. Oh the joys of starting all over again haha but it’s exciting at the same time.


I’m a little burnt out in some areas of this bloglife. I feel like it’s become so cut throat and people are just SO damn competitive. I’ve always stayed true to myself and been honest when it comes to this space. And yes, I’ll admit, I sometimes get caught up in the games. Because this is my full-time job and I have to keep up with the changes and trends that come with this career. But the sense of community? I miss it.

The moving truck comes Friday and we’ll be starting to load it. Luckily we have some friends to help because with Z’s back, he’s not able to do much. We’ll be loading it all weekend and then it will be headed to storage until we can close on our house. Not the most ideal scenario but we have to roll with the punches on this one. We’ve always had movers and never dealt with moving ourselves so this has been an experience, that’s for sure lol.

So for a little break from the chaos, Lady and I are heading to get blowouts today! We won a contest on Instagram and I am so excited to see what she thinks haha follow along on Insta-stories! Hoping this is the first of many mama and daughter trips to the salon 🙂

Have a great Wednesday babes! XO

    I’m sorry to hear that things are stressful right now. I guess the phrase you here as a newborn mother would apply here as well. “This too shall pass.” I do think it is interesting how certain trends come back in style. I’m pretty sure I had a tank top version on that body suit in the 90s. lol. Also, I’d really like to know where that choker is from. When I click on the link it brings me to the shorts.

      I think I had the same shirt! I think that’s why I had to buy it! haha and thank you for letting me know; I must have linked the shorts twice! But she is sold out of the necklace 🙁 I’m sorry! It’s from House of W Designs tho if you see anything else you like, SAM15 gets you a discount 🙂

    Girl. I feel you on the community thing. I miss it too. But I’m guilty of not cultivating it! I hadn’t read your blog in so long and when I saw you on the Ohio Bloggers Facebook page yesterday I couldn’t believe that I didn’t even know you were moving back! I want to get the community back! Ugh!

what do you think?
