Fall Fashion/It’s Been a Minute

Clearly consistency is not going to be the word to describe this blog. It’s been a minute. A week…ish. I don’t know if it was the build-up/come-down of the election or my autoimmune disease laying the brain fog on thick, but I just haven’t had anything to say. I finally had a woman in aContinue reading “Fall Fashion/It’s Been a Minute”

My Little Vegetarian

I knew this day would come. The day when my seven-year-old, V, asked that daunting question. No, it wasn’t, “Is Santa real?” We went through that a few months ago when the practical elements of one man delivering presents all over the world didn’t make sense to my very practical child. No it wasn’t even,Continue reading “My Little Vegetarian”

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”

Getaway

9 years married isn’t one of the big “milestone” years, but when you have 3 children and one is a teething baby, on day 200 something of a global pandemic, you use any excuse to celebrate and get away. 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”
