More than a Mommy

On ETBU, and meeting up with an old friend.

July 26, 2014

I loved my college experience. Loved it. I know a private Christian university isn’t for everyone, and you wouldn’t think an 18 year old whom had never had a curfew and had very lenient parents would choose to attend a school where many policies were considered antiquated. It doesn’t make a whole lot of sense, […]

Motherhood: the hard days.

September 23, 2013

It was one of those days. Like many days. It started off with all the signs of productivity– a cup of coffee, reading the paper on the porch while the little one colors chalk in the warm sunlight. We added breakfast, a load of laundry in the washer, the unloading of bags from last night, […]

If there’s anything I really hate, it’s being limited.  I don’t like being told I have to pick something — a major, a career, a path. I like having my options open. I like feeling like I can do anything. In pregnancy, you are immediately limited. Limited on what you can eat, do, what medicines […]

Turning 29.

March 28, 2013

I turn 29 tomorrow. Well, today. I’m actually writing this before the clock strikes midnight, so by the time this is posted and written, it will be March 28. I am beginning my last year of my twenties. Or the first year of a long streak of 29. I haven’t decided yet. Birthdays are always […]

I am worthy of my job.

January 3, 2013

Since I was a little girl, I had a plan for my future. It looked like this: graduate high school, go to college, have a career, get married, and become a stay at home mom when the time came. It happened exactly as I had planned. I graduated in the top 10 percent of my […]

For the Christmas Challenged.

December 1, 2012

My friends will tell you I’m kind of a freak.  They would tell you I’m an overachiever, that I rarely relax in social settings because I’m too focused on a perfect meal or perfect food.  They would tell you that I clean… compulsively. They also wouldn’t recognize my home right now if they walked in […]

Weight Issues and Pregnancy

November 30, 2012

I’m going to be really real, y’all.  I’ve battled with my weight my whole life. I am not naturally slim. I have curves. Unfortunately, I didn’t recognize my weight as healthy when I was in the good times, and I miss that now. Let me tell you a little about me and weight: *I rarely […]

I have a Bible.

October 18, 2012

I have a Bible. (Shocking, I know. But that’s not the point. Carry on.) I have a Bible and it’s really dear to me. It’s the one I currently use in the mornings and it’s the only study Bible I own (except my RSV from college).  It’s falling apart.  It has ripped at the top […]

LHS: Ten years later

October 8, 2012

I will admit, I started to get nervous about my class reunion.  To be fair, I think most of us did.  We’ve changed.  We remember what it was like 10 years ago and we recognize how different we are … but we tend to keep everyone else the same.  I hear all the time, “I […]

10 years ago (Pictures!)

October 4, 2012

Roughly 11 years ago I looked like this. HA!  I say 11 years, because this is one of my senior photos, and every senior worth his/her salt ran to the local photographer the summer before senior year for pictures. (It’s not true, but it’s the lie I believed.)  I spent a ton of money on […]
