Super Nerd

I grew up in a trailer in the woods. It was not a luxurious double-wide but we did have an addition built on to it so there was an extra room. We grew meat birds and to keep the baby chicks warm in the spring we would keep them in the house under a heat lamp. I preferred them living in my bedroom so I would fall asleep every night to chirping of birds and the smell of tiny poos.

Letters to Celebrities I’ve Never Sent- Amy Poehler

Dear Amy, I’m writing to you even though every inch of me is screaming noooooooooo. I’m so deeply ashamed that I’ve even started this letter…and as I continue this sentence the loathing grows. Everything I type is vile, clever garbage and I want to shoot myself (oh God more garbage) to stop my brain from continuing… But. I’m going to do …

Input VS Output (the fine, fine, finest balance)

I have nothing to say about this except 1 thought. 1 take. No filters. In my bed desk. My output is way out of wack with my input. Once you’ve heard me speak truth to power from my bed. Watch the video below of trying to follow my own advice. Love all to you no-stop outputters out there. xo Em

The F*ck It Year.

One of my most favourite things to talk about is the “optics of success” and how we tend to see, and be shown only certain parts of people. We see their successes and impresses, less so their distress (alliteration baby). And this little “know-it-all”‘ thought she had it down pretty good…being fully herself publically- until it hit me. I’m still …

I was a stay-at-home-mom for 2 weeks and this is what happened.

I have a 3.5 and a 1.5 year old. Since they were 3 months old I have spent no more than four days in a row with them. I’m neither ashamed of this or bragging. It’s my choice. I love my job. And I’m not cut out to be a stay-at-home parent. But my husband’s been working a lot more lately, so …

My staycation (told in gifs and pics) is gonna make you so jelly.

I hit the wall. This may come as a surprise to some, as I have 2 kids and 3 jobs, that it took so long… But a week ago I hit it. . I shut my bedroom door and I sat on the corner my bed. while my boys were distracting me…trying to decide what to do.   And I heard …

Judgements from the Quote Queen

I love me a good quote. I’ve got one pasted to the back of my bathroom mirror right now and it’s been there through three moves, for about a decade. So I’m committed. This being said, there are some royal bullshit quotes flying around the internet and today I’m taking the time to lay some opinions down. #1. “You can …

Camping with Toddlers.

Camping with toddlers is the worst hell imaginable. #1. Death is everywhere. Did you know that children don’t intrinsically know not to fall face first into the fire pit? Rocks, sticks, stinging nettle, poisonous berries, rattlesnakes and fire ants. Most of my day is spent yelling No. Not the… No. Not the. .No! Not the! Fuck. Not that! *A peaceful moment #2. Childhood …
