Summer Family Vacation To St. Simons Island, Georgia

August 14, 2019

Raise your hand if you have ever gone on a family vacation to St. Simons Island, Georgia?! Oh wait, you didn’t know Georgia had islands? I get that reaction a LOT. I grew up on SSI, so I commonly tell people where I’m from and they’re like… Georgia has a coast?! Georgia indeed has a coast (and a beautiful one to boot). We have been talking about going away somewhere before school started. We have truly never been on a…

You Only Get One Face: Let’s Talk About Skincare Over 30

August 10, 2019

This post is sponsored by Cetaphil®. All opinions are mine. I wrote a post once, detailing thirty things I learned by the time I turned thirty. Coming in strong on the list was my stern advice about skincare. I am willing to bet that the majority of women who are 30+ would tell you that they have regrets about the way they’ve taken care of their face and skin in their youth and maybe early adulthood. From not using the…

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019

July 15, 2019

It’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale time! Early access (for cardholders) goes through July 18th, and then it’s open to the public. I decided to only go through the Women’s items this year. The kids’ section looked like the same stuff they usually have, and I found comparable on other sites. I also almost never shop Nordstrom for Home, so we kept it simple! I went through roughly 3000 Women’s sale items and these were the ones I would purchase! Happy Shopping.…

Best True Crime Podcasts (And More)

July 8, 2019

I asked my Instagram audience for podcast suggestions the other day and boy, did they come through. They know I love true crime and that it’s my genre of choice, so there were more suggestions for that category than anything. I got a bunch of requests to share the recommendations, so I thought it would be easiest to do it in a blog post. I’m going to start with my top ten personal recommendations that I’ve listened to and love…

Adulting 101: The Importance Of Life Insurance As Your Family Grows

July 4, 2019

This post is sponsored by COUNTRY Financial®. All opinions are mine. I wrote a little about life insurance a few weeks ago, but it’s such an important “adulting” conversation to have. It’s one of those subjects we tend to skirt around and avoid. No one wants to talk about death and hypothetical tragedy, but it’s so important to have all your ducks in a row. We recently had a death in the family and it was another reminder that loved…

Adulting 101: Why An Emergency Fund Is Important

July 2, 2019

This post is sponsored by COUNTRY Financial®. All opinions are mine.  Sometimes, I feel like I might be the poster child for why an emergency fund is important. Over the last two years, we’ve had two cross country moves, an unexpected job loss, a lot of unexpected expenses, and we recently bought a car. I have seen over and over how important a “cushion” in the bank really is. A few of these things that came up for us wound…
