St. Patrick’s Day, Mountain Views And Hot Tubs ☘️🏔

I've been away from my blog much of this week due to being busy as fuck working and...drumroll please...doing all kinds of paperwork to get us approved for our new house! Yep, we found our house and we are officially under contract and approved to buy it! It's a new construction 3 bedroom/2 bath home… Continue reading St. Patrick’s Day, Mountain Views And Hot Tubs ☘️🏔

12 Things That Irritate Me About Movies And TV

Everyone loves watching movies and TV (well, except for those pretentious douches who pretend they're too good to be entertained by screens, anyway). Sometimes, however, the onscreen characters' shenanigans just get too ridiculously unrealistic for me and it's irritating. For example: They're always dressed up in street clothes, full makeup, jewelry, and wearing shoes INSIDE… Continue reading 12 Things That Irritate Me About Movies And TV

8 Things I’ll Never Be “Too Old” To Do

I'm less than a week away from my 35th birthday, and it's a little nerve-wracking because I always thought 35 sounded old.

You Gotta Get A Little Mud On The Tires

I'm a born and raised country girl and I used to go muddin' all the time back when I lived in Ohio. In the years since I traded in NE Ohio for Cary, NC and my trucks/Jeeps for a fuel-efficient Kia, I've really missed my old life and hobbies. So, when I accidentally got my… Continue reading You Gotta Get A Little Mud On The Tires

Vacation In Ohio!

People are simpler here; they're not as pretentious as the wealthy suburbanites in Cary who all buy the same cookie cutter house for $400k and drive the same $80k luxury SUV in… Continue reading Vacation In Ohio!

Camping Thoughts: It’s OK To Just Do Nothing Sometimes (Actually It’s Awesome)

Before this weekend, I'm embarrassed to say it had been over 5 years since my last camping trip. I used to go often when I lived in rural Ohio, but my lifestyle changed when I moved to the ugly concrete jungle suburbia known as Cary, NC in 2013. In Cary, people buy cookie-cutter houses two… Continue reading Camping Thoughts: It’s OK To Just Do Nothing Sometimes (Actually It’s Awesome)

Even If I’m Rich Someday, I’ll Never Be A Pretentious Money-Waster

Some people rate their worth and quality of life on how much stuff they have and how expensive their stuff is. I am not one of those people, and I think it’s silly to blow money on expensive things to impress people or give them the impression that you’re better than them. I’ve known a… Continue reading Even If I’m Rich Someday, I’ll Never Be A Pretentious Money-Waster
