31 Day Blog Challenge–Day 31: A Weird Quirk Of Mine

31 Day Blog Challenge–Day 31: A Weird Quirk Of Mine

Hi all! Today is the last day of my blog challenge, day 31. It’s been fun, but it’s time to get into some serious, original writing after this. I’m looking forward to it, but also nervous–what if you hate it?! Time to spread my wings, I suppose. Day 31 is a weird quirk of mine. My entire existence is basically a weird quirk, but just to pick one off the top of my head, I will say popping my gum…

31 Day Blog Challenge–Day 30: My Favorite Comfort Food

31 Day Blog Challenge–Day 30: My Favorite Comfort Food

Hi all! Day 30 of my 31 day blog challenge is my favorite comfort food. This is weird, but it’s tuna melts. If Hubby comes home from work to see that I have made them, he walks on eggshells because he knows something is wrong. I’m sick, or I’ve had a horrible day. I’m not sure why this is my go-to, but it is. When I worked at the call center, I would text him and say “Tuna melts for dinner” and…

I think I’m at something like 27 currently, so I’ve got a good start anyway! I have a…

31 Day Blog Challenge–Day 28: The Last Time I Cried

31 Day Blog Challenge–Day 28: The Last Time I Cried

Hi all! Day 28 of my 31 day blog challenge is the last time I cried. Wow, I can’t actually remember. That’s unbelievable. The last time I can actually think of was when I found out that a second one of my friends was pregnant. I love babies, everyone. I love my daughter. I loathed being pregnant, but there were some really special times–hearing her heartbeat for the first time, seeing her on an ultrasound, feeling her kick (this got…

31 Day Blog Challenge–Day 27: What Makes Me Feel Better, Always

Hi all! Day 27 of my 31 day blog challenge is what makes me feel better, always. I’m not sure there’s anything that consistently makes me feel better when I’m down. I can tell you what makes me feel better, usually. My husband makes me feel better, usually. AJ makes me feel better, usually. My dogs make me feel better, usually. Chocolate makes me feel better, usually. These things can all backfire on me, though. Hubby has been known to…

31 Day Blog Challenge–Day 26: My Favorite Blogs

31 Day Blog Challenge–Day 26: My Favorite Blogs

Hi all! Day 26 of my 31 day blog challenge is my 5 favorite blogs. Despite the information that I have read about blogging indicating that networking with other bloggers and having specific role models in the blogging community is super important, I’m not sure I can make it to 5. That’s definitely something for me to work on. I had a super popular food blog in mind to share with you all because I use tons of the recipes…

31 Day Blog Challenge–Day 25: My Best Physical Feature, The Mom Butt

31 Day Blog Challenge–Day 25: My Best Physical Feature, The Mom Butt

Hi all! Day 25 of my 31 day blog challenge is my best physical features. What???? Um…okay, here goes…None. Is that an option? No? Okay, I will say my bottom. That thing used to be quite the dude magnet. It was perky, and stuck out from my otherwise very flat body. My husband married me for my butt. Okay, that’s probably not the only reason he married me, but he does identify as a butt man, and he appreciated it. Now, I…

31 Day Blog Challenge–Day 24: A Difficult Time In My Life

31 Day Blog Challenge–Day 24: A Difficult Time In My Life

Hi all! Day 24 of my 31 day blog challenge is a difficult time in my life. I’m going to go ahead and say that a difficult time in my life was at my last job. After I graduated from college with an English degree and moved to small-town Iowa, the only job that paid more than minimum wage that I was qualified for was a job working in a call center. I started in March of 2013. This was a…

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

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…
