Type A WDW

A few times a year, I’ll pick a day to reset and re-think a lot of my personal goals. My birthday (which rolled around this weekend) marks the end of the first quarter of the year, so today is a good day for me to do that. This is a little bit of a fluffy […]

I will rarely discuss religion on here, for various reasons, one of them being that there are just so many people who do it better than I could. I’m writing this realizing that many have already written about this over the past few days, and it is likely that I am adding to the noise. […]

What's In My Bag || NEON FRESH

I was talking to my friend about how much I love “What’s in My Bag” posts on the internet, simply because I am crazy curious about other people. I finally admitted to her that I would love it if she (or any of my friends, really) passed me her handbag and gave me full permission […]

Each week, I compile a small collection of stuff I wrote, read, tried, watched, tasted, fell asleep on ( last two are mostly a joke).

How to Potty Train Your Child Before Age Two

Let me preface this whole post by stating I do not like discussing anything in relation to bathrooms. I’m a little bit of a Prairie Mary when it comes to this sort of thing, but I figure if I’m going to write a post about why you need a yearly gyn exam, I can write […]
