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 …

My Top 5 Funniest TTBG Radio Shows

I’m attracted to darkness. I feel like it’s the way we connect the deepest with each other. It’s not often that I meet a friend for lunch and be like… “…aaaaaak, life is going sooooo great for me. I’m soooo happy! I’m satisfied and rich and feel so loved ALL THE TIME” and then she’s like… “me too! Life is just …

An Ode to Dads

One of my best friends told me this incredible story. It is horribly embarrassing so I have taken out any identifiers. It is all true.

Creative Inspiration from The Vault (like Oprah's fav things list)

I get inspiration from lots of disparate places. Here are a few things that I’m loving this week, or have loved for years, or think are plain ole funny as shit. My friend gave me this book. I would never have been interested without her recommendation. It’s blowing my freaking mind. It’s making me feel like “whoa, maybe this isn’t my …

My Friend David (Sedaris)…the saga continues.

I’ve been trying to become friends with David Sedaris for a few years now. It started at a dinner party when a drunk acquaintance told me that he offered to be her mentor. I started hyperventilating and asked how she responded to his offer. “I never wrote him back” she said. Story here. To me, this is the worst kind …
