I finally chopped off my hair! I was growing it out and after two years I was just plain sick of it. It was just big and frizzy and unmanageable. I decided to try something new. I went to my favorite stylist at Wooptido and told her that I was sick of it and needed it to be long enough to put in a ponytail for working out but other than that, take care of it!

She chopped a bunch off! It’s a tad shorter than I wanted (I can barely put it in a ponytail) but it’s not bad! She straightened my hair when she was done. I look like a completely different person with straight hair. LOL!

We’ll see if I can even recreate that straight look on my own!


I wanted to tell you guys about the awesome meal planner I bought recently. I was using paper planners and I hated how much paper I was wasting. I kept looking for something else and finally found something: Dry Erase Meal Planner.

It works so great! It’s magnetic and actually stays on the fridge (unlike other magnetic stuff I’ve tried). It comes with a pen, too. It’s so easy to use to plan the week and meals, etc.

Amazon Prime Day was kind of dud for me this year. I honestly didn’t need or want anything BUT we did get one thing. Michael has wanted a smoker for a million years and there was one for like 40% off on Prime Day so we bit the bullet and got it! Traeger Grills TFB38TCA Renegade Elite Wood Pellet Grill and Smoker with Built In Tool Rack and Shelf – Grill, Smoke, Bake, Roast, Braise and BBQ

We are going to try it out this weekend! YAY.


I recently discovered the Dax Shepard podcast and it’s really good! I enjoy it a lot! So far I’ve listened to Katie Couric (highly recommend) and Lauren Graham.

Also, recently discovered: The Mom Hour. I enjoy it a lot and spent about two weeks at work working through old episodes that interested me. They are funny and relatable and if you have kids, it’s really helpful! For all ages! There was another mom podcast that someone recommended and I REALLY tried to listen but one of the chicks kept interrupting and saying “mmmhmmm” after everything the other person said and it was SO ANNOYING. So check out the Mom Hour. Much better!

In the same vein, if you are looking for a HILARIOUS podcast about parenthood, check out Dirty Mother Pukka. I’m all caught up on that one, too, and sadly it doesn’t seem like there are new posts. But it was so hilarious, I’d be laughing out loud at work all day long and coworkers would ask me what I was listening to!

  1. Wow – you look so different with straight hair! I am about ready to chop mine off. I have been growing it out and it just gets in the way and I’m wearing it in a ponytail almost all the time anyway, so I should just cut if off LOL.
    Lori recently posted..Yay – insomnia is back…

    1. I know! I didn’t recognize myself. LOL
      I was in the same boat. I grew my hair out for the wedding because I wasn’t sure how I wanted to do my hair that day (and it was 93 degrees so I ended up putting it in an updo ha!) and then cut some of it after. Then I grew my hair out again for like two years and chopped it off when Logan was born. (That felt great! And no grabby baby hands pulling my hair.) I really wanted long hair again but after almost a year of growing it out I hated it so much I just put it in a ponytail all the time. So why bother?

  2. I really like Katie Couric’s podcast, though I pick and choose based on my interest in the guest. My all time favorite episode was the one with Martha Stewart! Episode 40 last year. Sharon Horgan (June this year) was really good, and I’m looking forward to a new season of Catastrophe soon!
