Last night, my husband and I were watching Catfish on MTV (yes, we have guilty pleasures). While watching, the woman who was revealed was definitely NOT the woman in the original pictures that were presented to the guy who was “in love” with her. The girl was definitely bigger, and I immediately felt bad for … More Does this make me look fat?
Today, I had my third interview in about 3 months time. I interviewed for 3 very different positions, but all higher than what I currently do now.

I have this problem that has plagued me ever since I was diagnosed with depression. I avoid things. I don’t honestly know why.

Okay, so I am only about 3 months into having 3 kids, and I have to admit, I have already noticed a difference in myself. It might sound weird, but I didn’t feel this way with two. Here are some things I noticed so far. -I have learned to let things go more. Before, when … More 3 Kids Can Really Change You
And so I have found myself at my last day of maternity leave. I am beside myself. I don’t know what to do first. I felt bad, too, because I was so upset that I took it out on my husband this morning. I normally don’t see him mornings because if the baby wakes up … More The last day
So I have been struggling with the fact that I go back in less than two weeks to work. I don’t want this time to end. I am afraid of missing something, and knowing that this is my last baby makes it even harder. Ok, I didn’t ask for more time from my OB. I … More Too little, too late
Today was a first for me in motherhood. No, it wasn’t that my kid walked for the first time or said their first word. It was that I didn’t stress out about staying home with my sick child.
