Falling in Love with My First Fix

I love fashion. I’m just not super fashion savvy. My wardrobe tends to be fairly boring. Scrubs and tee shirts for work, yoga pants at home after work, and my version of dressing nicely on the weekends. This usually consists of my favorite skinny jeans, boots and a comfy dolman top. Nothing too fancy, but it works for me. However, I want to expand my wardrobe a bit, and I want a few staples that can be dressed up a {Read More}

I started journaling again — just for myself, as most if it was too {Read More}

Happy Valentine’s Day to You Husband

To My Husband on Valentine’s Day, Valentine’s Day brings up a lot of unresolved feelings for me. Yes, I know that we have been apart for a decent amount of time at this point. The fact that you didn’t live or stay here one day in 2015 can attest to that. But the feelings? They never really left.

6 Mobile Phone Games to Pass the Time

I don’t know about you, but I rely on my phone way too much. In some ways, it’s my life line and without it I would be completely lost. Honestly — if it doesn’t make it into my iPhone calendar, I’m not remembering to do it. On the other hand, I have been known to spend way too much time staring at the screen.

Let’s Talk Teeth

Anyone that knows me knows that I am *slightly* obsessed with all things dental related. It works out well for me considering I currently work in the dental field. But yea… implants, crowns, extractions, bridge work, baby teeth … I love it all. Most people feel the complete opposite way that I do. They hate the dentist. And I don’t really blame them.

Encourage Your Kids To Learn At Home

We’re not that far away from spring break, and school is often completely forgotten during that time. This is a bigger issue than you might realize because the world is becoming more {Read More}

Maintaining Your Child’s Innocence in a Challenging World
