Adult Coloring Books For Irreverent Moms, Dads, and Other Humans

Adult Coloring Books For Irreverent Moms, Dads, and Other Humans

Hi all! I’ve been suffering from an enormous lack of motivation lately because of some stuff going on in my personal life that’s got me a little down. If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I’ve been doing a lot of coloring to get my mind off of my #firstworldproblems. Everybody’s seen adult coloring books; they’ve been trendy for the last few years. Everybody also probably is aware of the peace of mind that can come from sitting down for…

A Man Called Ove: A Review

A Man Called Ove: A Review

Hi readers! I wrote a review a few weeks ago of My Grandmother Asked Me To Tell You She’s Sorry (you can read that here), and I really didn’t have a lot to say about it that was very nice. I feel really bad about it because I had also read A Man Called Ove and knew that the author, Fredrik Backman, wasn’t a bad writer, just My Grandmother Asked Me To Tell You She’s Sorry was kind of a one-off. So, today, I…

Blog Report: March 2017

Blog Report: March 2017

Hi all! It’s the beginning of a new month, so I have some numbers to share again! I am so impressed and just blown away by the growth I have seen, even though A Funny Thing Happened Today is still considered even less than a small blog. Baby steps! I think, maybe more for me than you (though I hope you find it interesting, too), it will be really helpful to show a blog report of what I’ve done so far,…

Book Of The Month Announcement: April 2017

Book Of The Month Announcement: April 2017

Hi readers! It’s 9 pm on a Saturday night currently and I’m just getting this post started, but I promised myself that I would indeed announce the book of the month on the first of the month for April rather than stretching that to the “beginning” of the month like I did for March’s announcement, so come hell or high water I’m getting this done! A smart blogger would have written a draft and just set it to publish today, but I’m…

18 Home Treatments For Psoriasis

18 Home Treatments For Psoriasis

Hi all! I wanted to do a post today about self-care, but I realized I’m not sure how to do self-care, so I decided instead to discuss something I’m more familiar with: care of others. Specifically, my husband. More specifically, his psoriasis. Hubby gets psoriasis flare-ups on his legs primarily (though sometimes his arms too) that get ridiculous and out of control. I feel some pity for him, of course, but I usually end up going nuts about treating it mainly…

Rocking Motherhood Challenge

Rocking Motherhood Challenge

Hi all! I’m super excited about today’s post, the Rocking Motherhood Challenge. Like, seriously. I was nominated by Meghna Dixit over at Love, Life, & The Little One to join this fantastic challenge to come up with 10 reasons that I’m “rocking motherhood”. Her Rocking Motherhood post is inspirational and heartfelt; I seriously encourage you to read it. It warmed my soul. From there, you can work your way back through a ton of other Rocking Motherhood posts, and your whole day…

7 Reasons To Have A Courthouse Wedding

7 Reasons To Have A Courthouse Wedding

Hi all! As I mentioned in Tuesday’s post, my husband and I are coming up on our three year anniversary and I think this is as good a time as any to reflect on our wedding. Our courthouse wedding. No, I wasn’t pregnant. He wasn’t joining the military, and we didn’t do it for insurance purposes. We just loved (and still love) each other, and that’s what we decided to do, for several reasons. For as long as I can…

No Anniversary Gifts: We Are Enough

No Anniversary Gifts: We Are Enough

Hi all! As of March 18, Hubby and I will have been married for three years. Some days it feels like forever, truly, but other days it seems like just yesterday that we tied the knot in the courthouse (come back for more on that on Thursday!). Like all marriages, it’s had its good days and its bad ones, but for better or worse he’s my best friend, and there’s no one else I’d rather annoy until the end of…
