The Adult Participation Trophy

Social media can get a bad rep based on the person explaining their experiences with it, but the truth is you choose who you’re friends with and who you follow so the content you’re most exposed to is based on your choices. Not something most people will be…

Worth It Wednesday

What: Bargain shopping and couponing

Initial Thoughts: Definitely worth the effort to save money. I love not having to spend money unnecessarily as well as watching the total go down as coupons are being scanned.

How’s it Going: I was going strong with couponing while living…

What You’re Really Owed: Nothing

Last week I had different friends posting about various topics and one posted about apology language (a spin off of the 5 Love Languages) and another posted something polar opposite in regards to you not being able to tell anyone how to love you, but…

College

Worth it Wednesday

Product: College Degree

Initial Thoughts: Of course it’s important! I knew from a young age that I wanted to get a degree. I had a career path I thought I intended on sticking to, but more importantly going off to college was a way for me to escape the small town I lived in. I…

Societal Pressure To Have It All Figured Out

I’ll go ahead and say at nearly 39 years old, I have no idea what I want to do with my life. While I don’t have those answers, based on my professional career I had prior to becoming a stay at home mom I am aware of what I do NOT want to do. I…

Colorful food

Worth it Wednesday

This week is going to be a little different. I usually am reviewing a product that I’ve purchased, but this week I wanted to explore whether investing in health and wellness (and yes there is definitely a cost associated with this) is worth it.

Normalizing The Stay At Home Parent

I know this isn’t for everyone. I completely get it, but neither is going to a 9-5 job. I am one of the people that absolutely enjoyed the adult interaction and the work I was doing while completing therapy, but I hated nearly every job I’ve had in my…

Product: Boka (Mindful Oral Care)

First Thoughts: I hate IG and all those ads that get me to click on them and then all of a sudden I really want the product. I knew I wanted to order it when I first saw it and read all of the reviews, but it was still in the back of my mind that people…

The Box Mentality: Be it Unto You According To Your Faith

If you read the Bible, you know that last part is a scripture. However, whether you’re a believer or not you can benefit from recognizing the power of what you believe. For the majority of my life, I had huge plans. I knew I…

Floor

Worth it Wednesday

Product: Floor Tile Stickers

Thoughts: I was super excited. I had previously watched more than my fair share of YouTube videos on peel and stick floor tiles, but since we had a home that isn’t even 2 years old I didn’t want to go that route and found the stickers on Etsy.…

Respect: Given or Earned

This is something I’m sure you’ve heard argued over or even participated in the argument. As a young person, I was always told that I needed to earn respect from those in positions of authority. While I was told this, there was always a space in the back of…

Period

Worth it Wednesday

Product: Period panties

Initial Thoughts: I was excited, but I knew that I couldn’t spend the money (I’m cheap and have no regrets about it) that Thinx brand requires. I went to the mighty Amazon and did an extensive search on which ones had great reviews and were budget friendly. I am…
