My Grandmother Asked Me To Tell You She’s Sorry: A Review

My Grandmother Asked Me To Tell You She’s Sorry: A Review

Hi dear readers! It’s the end of the month, so as promised, here is my review of My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry, the second novel by Fredrik Backman, author also of A Man Called Ove. If I had to pick one word for my feelings about the book, it would be “frustrated”. Read on to find out why! Quick pro tip: You’re welcome to buy physical copies of any books through the links I’ve provided throughout…

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…

7 Reasons To Love The BabyBum Brush

7 Reasons To Love The BabyBum Brush

Hi all! In my 50 Things You Need For A New Baby post, I included a BabyBum Brush for applying diaper cream as one of the things you needed. I was and still am very conflicted about this specific product. For a long time I thought it was a stupid idea. “I’m not one of those parents that will buy anything! Do they think I’m an idiot? Oh no, not me! My finger works just fine! Nice try, advertisers,” I thought. Then,…

Let’s Talk About Childbirth And Recovery

Let’s Talk About Childbirth And Recovery

Hi dear readers! I’m usually all about having a fun time over here, but I want to get serious about something today. Let’s talk about childbirth and recovery. Like, actually talk about it. My Story: What Didn’t Hurt As you know, I’m a mom. Although giving birth itself wasn’t painful for me, I’m familiar with the pain associated with giving birth. When I had AJ, I had an epidural, which was amazeballs. That’s something I would highly recommend. Instead of screaming…

Book Of The Month Announcement: March 2017

Good morning, dear readers! I’m coming at you this morning just quickly to let you know, I have decided to do a book of the month, and to announce what it is. I said I would announce it the first of the month, but at least it’s still the “beginning” of the month, right? 🙂 This month, I want to read My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry. What’s it about? A synopsis from Amazon: “Elsa is seven…

Blog Report: February 2017

Blog Report: February 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,…
