I may be a little biased….but I have the sweetest daughter in the world. 

She is so loving and kind, shares (usually) and loves to help. 

She has helped raise two litters of kittens, a puppy and chinchillas. She has fish and is growing her own flowers. She loves her friends (especially chloe) and she loves to smile. 

I was working (like usual) today and she told me to come and sit down. (I am trying not to say “in a minute” because she now says it) So I followed her to the couch and sat down. She hands me a box that she has been shaking and says “here mommy, happy birthday” (my birthday is in may). I open this box and it has a fake croissant, fake broccoli, a shot glass, a lid to a toy pitcher, a potatoes masher and a plastic knife. I told her “thank you! I love it!” And she says “your welcome mommy, happy birthday”. 

I mean come on…if that don’t melt your heart then you are just soulless. Such sweet memories, such a sweet girl. 



We live in Washington state. No not by Seattle or down in the Tri-City area. We live an hour south of Canada and two hours west of Idaho. I’m way up in the tiny right hand corner of Washington state.

All of you know, who live in the northern states, we get a LOT of snow. 

The past few years have been very odd and we only ever got maybe one big snowfall. This year we have had several! 

And the schools closed for a total of 4 days now! These schools NEVER close. 

Last night we had about a foot get dumped all at once, on top of the few inches we got yesterday in the day. 

I’m getting off topic tho. 

The point of this post was to thank my AMAZING husband who went out and shoveled our porch, stairs, sidewalks, a path to get the cars out, a path out the back door and a path to move a car into the carport. 

All by himself he did this.

I am so appreciative of him and all the work he does to take care of me and my daughter. I shoveled last time it snowed like that and I was sore for days! 
So thank you Weston for being so amazing! Working so hard, and giving us an amazing life. 


Okay so I try to be a pretty reasonable person. Like I try and allow parents to control their own children at my house, the way I would control my child at their house. I know kids are kids and things happen so I try and not flip shit. I’ve had kids come and destroy my house and leave. I’ve had kids just not listen non stop and the parents do nothing. I have had kids throw things and kick things and have little to no consequences. All of these things fuel a fire in me and it makes me CRAZY. But I don’t want to be THAT mom. The mom that yells at everyone’s kids, the mom that is a neat freak, the mom that no other moms like because o have my house a certain way and my kid is a certain way and all other ways make me go insane! No. I try to be calm, I play it off and say “they are just kids”, “boys are rough”. blah blah blah. Inside I wanna scream! Tonight…..tonight man….this kid has repeatedly been told not to do stuff, took stuff the second my kid put it down because they knew it would upset my kid, and would just get into EVERYTHING! I just got done cleaning up my FAVORITE eye shadow powder, and my brand new powder coverup because that same kid made a mess! My favorites! I don’t cry and I don’t yell but I had tears in my eyes as I leaned it all up….I’m hiding in my dining room venting because I can’t even!
