31 Day Blog Challenge–Day 23: My Pet Peeves

31 Day Blog Challenge–Day 23: My Pet Peeves

Hi all! Day 23 of my 31 day blog challenge is my pet peeves. This list honestly can change at the drop of a hat, but in general… Chewing gum with your mouth open My mom is a serial offender in this department, and when she does it I snap at her like I’m the mom and she’s an errant toddler. I was recently on a flight where the gentleman behind me was jawing away at his gum through the whole…

31 Day Blog Challenge–Day 22: My 10 Favorite Songs

31 Day Blog Challenge–Day 22: My 10 Favorite Songs

Hi all! Day 22 of my 31 day blog challenge is my 10 favorite songs. That’s tough. I think rather than trying to do specifically all-time favorites, I will include a mishmash of all-time favorites and current jams, and I am not even going to attempt to put these in any certain order. All Time Low by Jon Bellion. I don’t think this will make it into my all-time favorites, but for right now I am obsessed with this song. AJ…

31 Day Blog Challenge–Day 21: Something I Miss

31 Day Blog Challenge–Day 21: Something I Miss

Hi all! Day 21 of my 31 day blog challenge is something I miss. I miss being a teenager, like maybe 16. I thought I had it so bad, but oh my god I would give anything to go back to that lifestyle. My mom did my laundry and made my dinner. I didn’t have any bills! Not a single one! I didn’t have a care in the world, really. I thought I had all these huge problems, but I…

31 Day Blog Challenge–Day 20: Where I Want To Be In 10 Years

31 Day Blog Challenge–Day 20: Where I Want To Be In 10 Years

Hi all! Day 20 of my 31 day blog challenge is where I want to be in 10 years. In 10 years, I will be done having babies; hopefully we will have three little ones. I want to have our student loans paid off (even with minimum payments, they should only take maybe 5 more years). If we still live in this house, I want to have it paid off–doable. I really don’t want my daughter (or future children) to…

31 Day Blog Challenge–Day 19: My Worst Habits

31 Day Blog Challenge–Day 19: My Worst Habits

Hi all! Day 19 of my 31 day blog challenge is my worst habits. My #1 worst habit is smoking. I have tried a million times to quit, and did for about 10 months when I was pregnant with my daughter, but I picked it up again, which was the dumbest thing I have ever done. I thought I could just have one for laughs and it would be fine. I was wrong. I will quit again when we have…

My Favorite Super Bowl Foods

My Favorite Super Bowl Foods

Hi all! With the Super Bowl coming up next weekend, I wanted to share some of my favorite Super Bowl foods with you. I’m not going to lie, the main reason I’m excited for this year’s Super Bowl is to see Lady Gaga at halftime. I love her. I enjoy the commercials, like all “basic” people, and usually I enjoy the game, too. I’ve been seeing pie charts all over the interwebs of “people who want the Falcons to win because they…

31 Day Blog Challenge–Day 18: What I’m Afraid Of

31 Day Blog Challenge–Day 18: What I’m Afraid Of

Hi all! Day 18 of my 31 day blog challenge is what I’m afraid of. I’m afraid of lots of things. I’m afraid of the dark. I’m afraid of failure. Failing at work, failing as a wife, failing as a mom. Failure in all forms, really. I’m afraid of losing my family. I’m afraid of mice running across my kitchen counter. I’m afraid of spiders. I’m afraid of flying. There’s just no chance you’re getting out of a plane crash…

31 Day Blog Challenge–Day 17: My Favorite Childhood Book

31 Day Blog Challenge–Day 17: My Favorite Childhood Book

Hi all! Day 17 of my 31 day blog challenge is my favorite childhood book. As a child, I was, and still am, a voracious reader, so I had many favorites, but I think the first book I ever read by myself was Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss. Even to this day, I love Dr. Seuss books, and I am hoping to instill my obsession in AJ’s psyche. Some of my other favorites were Itchy Itchy Chicken Pox,…

31 Day Blog Challenge–Day 16: My Dream Job

31 Day Blog Challenge–Day 16: My Dream Job

Hi all! Day 16 of my 31 day blog challenge is my dream job. This is really a tough question! When I went to college with an English major (not something I’d recommend, in hindsight), I wanted to be a book editor and work in publishing. I knew that it was a tough field to break into, and my understanding of the career path was that I would have to move to a huge city to find any work; that…
