No, Trump Voters Don’t Need Your Sympathy

The title of this blog went from “Stop Scrolling, Start Having Conversations,” to “Time For a New Playbook” to “F Your Respectability Politics,” to “Can We Stop Coddling White People?” to its current iteration. Clearly I have a lot of feelings about how some white Democrats are racing to soothe the hurt feels of peopleContinue reading “No, Trump Voters Don’t Need Your Sympathy”

Anger & Revolution

This morning I woke up thinking about the Rebecca Traister’s book “Good & Mad: The Revolutionary Power of Women’s Anger,” which I read about a year after 45’s Inauguration. I’m thinking specifically about the part where Traister writes about suburban white women typically voting along with their husbands; feeling secure in their patriarchy adjacent privilegeContinue reading “Anger & Revolution”

What I Wore (And Didn’t Wear): Getaway Trip

First off, get your mind out of the gutter. This isn’t that kind of website. No bears/bares of either variety on this camping trip for me. When we booked our Getaway anniversary weekend I made two promises: 1. No makeup 2. Limited social media usage I stuck to #1 and did ok with #2. MaybeContinue reading “What I Wore (And Didn’t Wear): Getaway Trip”

I’m Not Going to Post About Amy Coney Barrett

I’m not going to blog about the inevitable Senate confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett.Because I know you know it’s utter bullshit. I don’t have to tell you that her “originalist” philosophy is nonsense and disproven by the very fact she is vying for this position. I don’t have to tell you that the fact theContinue reading “I’m Not Going to Post About Amy Coney Barrett”

After pushing the children out of the minivan in front of my parent’s house (don’t worry,Continue reading “Getaway”

Friday Fashun

I’m going on my first “homeschool mommy hangout” this morning at the playground for a socially distant meet up with a likeminded mama and her 2 girls because my kids really need other tiny humans to stare at besides their brother. It’s finally Fall in Texas (thrilled). I would describe my fashion style as “cocoon”Continue reading “Friday Fashun”

Oh Mother (Denim)

This morning we went to the park in the wealthy town nextdoor…you know, the town where there are multiple Tesla charging stations and white collar crimes aplenty on the City Council (scandalous!) I decided to up my playground game a tad and finally test drive my Mother Denim (no charging required). I have been wearingContinue reading “Oh Mother (Denim)”

6 Ensemble Essentials for the RV-ing Mom

I’m already laughing over the “RV-ing Mom” bit. If you’ve read one of my previous posts (or I might have dreamed that) you’ll know that I have never been RVing/camping before this year (hey – I grew up in suburbia – my vacations consisted of down the shore and the one pilgrimage to Disneyworld thatContinue reading “6 Ensemble Essentials for the RV-ing Mom”
