Gift Card Wish List

All year long I have a serious case of the "I wants". and sometimes I'm able to knock some of those items off of my, seemingly endless, list thanks to sales, good timing and socking away extra cash for those MUST HAVE NOW items. However, when it comes time for Christmas or my birthday and people ask me what I want; I can't seem to think of a thing. Not. one. thing. This, from a person who basically "shops" for a living (for other people) and has an extensive 'wish list' on Amazon. But nope. I got nothing. Which of course leaves gift cards as the only viable option for folks to go. I'm not mad about it. I appreciate the gift card. They are the gift that keeps on giving as I can use it for as long and as much or as little as I want until it runs out. This makes me happy. I'm able to purchase items across a variety of merchants and continue my love of supporting small businesses.

Wanting another tattoo didn't just come out of nowhere, I've had it on my brain for quite some time. In fact my IG friend Heidi drew me up a design that I was smitten with about a year or so ago and it's been sitting on my Pinterest board ever since. My commitment phobia issues start to arise when I think about tattooing and even though I have four others, with the exception of the first two, they were years apart. But in my mind I have delusions? visions of being this tattooed writing mama and it kind of scares me because I don't know anybody personally like that but it also excites me. I like the idea of being 'other…

Black & Gray ALL Day

It's no secret that I love a graphic tee. Particularly those with catchy sayings on them as they relate to drinking or parenting. Ripped jeans and a graphic tee is pretty much my outfit of choice most days because it's really simple for me. I don't have to worry to much about accessorizing or add a 'pop of color' and on the days when I simply have no idea what to wear, they make my closet a less intimidating place to be. Last month I lucked up and scored a major haul at my brother in law's job. He's a graphic designer and works for the company that creates the designs on all my favorites tees/tanks and sweatshirts. Sweet Pea and I basically bought our weight in tees and have been rocking the crap out of them ever since. It's basically heaven. 

However, this sweatshirt was NOT part of that fabulous haul. No, like most of my favorite pieces, this sweatshirt has a story. See, I saw it in Target a few months back while I was literally SPRINTING through the…
