I just turned thirty yesterday…. WHAT!?!?!?!?!? I TURNED THIRTY? How did this happen? I still feel like a nerdy, confused, sixteen-year-old. So far thirty feels real good. Like a comfy pair of mom jeans. I have learned a few things in my short thirty years. I figured I would share some of my brain gems I have collected through the years with you. Here are a few of my knowledge nuggets. Enjoy!

We have two kids under 5. As you can imagine, and as most of you know, we don’t get out as much as we used to. What used to be movie nights, eating out, or fun activities have turned into quiet evenings at home for my husband and I. Kids have bedtimes, busy schedules, and by the end of the day we are all wiped out.
I debated not throwing this party because:
let’s be honest, she is two, she has no “friends”, she will never remember it, parties cost a lot of money. The list goes on and on, I mean, who is this party even for?
But for some reason (probably because I am crazy) I just couldn’t kick this idea. So I made it happen.
AND OH MY GOSH IT TURNED OUT SO CUTE!
And did I mention, I did It all for way under $50?
YES YOU READ THAT CORRECTLY!
Keep scrolling to see the budget break down and loads of cute pictures.

I CANNOT wait to share today’s recipe with you! If you know me, you know my favorite food (this is for real) is mustard. I still remember in high school my family bought me a gallon container of mustard for my birthday, ha ha! And you better believe it got used! I love mustard in any way shape or form. And you better believe if I’m eating something that requires a condiment I will be putting mustard on it.
I am so excited I can hardly stand it!!!!! WE BOUGHT A CAMPING TRAILER! In the words of Emmett from Lego movie…
OH MY G- O- S- H.
What? You don’t remember that part of the movie? Whats wrong with you? Here is a clip.
One of my sons favorite books is “Where the Wild Things Are“. I actually remember reading this book as a child myself and thinking how cool it was that Max went on this amazing adventure and came back to his hot dinner waiting for him! It’s amazing how timeless of a book it is. It makes my 5 year olds imagination go wild, and he loves seeing cute little Max dancing with the wild things.
I have an obsession with rugs. It’s a problem. You can find me browsing through patterns and fabrics on the regular. One main reason I am always looking is because my rugs get destroyed!
The toy room rug, stained. Bathroom rug, smashed and dirty. Nursery rug, covered in spit up.
I wipe and clean but eventually, they die. All the wiping and spot cleaning in the world couldn’t keep those rugs going for one more day.

I picked this shirt out because… Duh! It is cute!
Navy blue is totally my color!
Then Melissa wrote her post “Life Is Sweet”… It was awesome. You should totally read it! It is so good. Then I was like, awe crap… what am I going to say about my shirt? I picked the wrong shirt. Honestly, my life right now is not super adventurous. I am not trekking the globe, jumping out of air planes, or feeding hungry sharks that’s for sure. Right now, adventure for me means changing out of my pajamas or making it out of the grocery store alive. (I’d rather swim with the sharks.)
We are so excited to be promoting a line of darling and inspirational shirts from “Cents of Style”. Starting 1/20 all of their inspirational graphic t-shirts will be 50% off and FREE shipping!

I am flipping tired, and I am mad.
I yelled at my kids today.
If I am being honest, I yell at my kids EVERYDAY.
