Stop Shaming Millennial Moms

Fellow mamas, I come to you with a proposition... no, a plea. That's the correct verbiage, here. I am pleading with each of you as I sit here in my sweatpants staring down an insanely large pile of laundry...

Stop. Shaming. Millennial. Moms.
Stop doing it publicly.
Stop doing it privately.

Stop doing it in an attempt to show us how ridiculous you think we are with our cell phones and our Starbucks and our yoga pants. Trust me. We are painfully aware of our own stereotype, but it comes with coffee and cute photos of our kids, so let us mother in peace.


So I'm a Wedding Planner...

Tuesday, August 15, 2017

So I'm planning a wedding y'all.  You're probably thinking I am a little crazy for marrying Caiden off so early, I mean he is only six months old after all.  Shocker, it's not Caiden's wedding (though we have received some proposals from some little darlings in our IG community). Y'all might know that not only am I a new mom but I'm a seasoned stepmom and this summer, my bonus daughter Madi said YES to her boyfriend and we started planning her wedding for October of 2018.

I am a crafty chick and imagining the DIY things I could do for this wedding has me overwhelmed with excitement.  In a world where you can find pretty much anything to DIY, I am going to conquer or fail (but mostly conquer right??) a fabulous DIY wedding for my stepdaughter and I'm going to share the trials and errors along the way.  If anything, this will be a great experience to document for her memories.
