A MIRACLE HAPPENED TO ME

2017 was quite possibly the worst year of my life. I tell the story on my Podcast (click here to hear it). 1999 was likely the worst year of Kacey Ruegsegger Johnson’s as she was shot in the library during the Columbine massacre. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the attack and the release of Kacey’s book, detailing what happened to her that awful day. To compare our (or anyone’s) ‘worst year’ isn’t even possible because each of us has our own personal story. But, one thing I could compare… and it gave me chills… was the experience we both shared as we felt (literally) the hand of God.

THAT TIME I CAVED...

My kids and I went shopping the other day. My six-year-old son, Miles, spotted and tried on a pair of sunglasses. He’s not typically into cruising stores unless it’s the toy department. So, the fact that on his own he saw, modeled and BEGGED me to buy these glasses really said something! They cost more than I would ordinarily want to spend on something he could so easily lose. But, he was truly feelin’ himself as he proceeded to strut around for the rest of the day (indoors and out!) wearing his super cool new shades. Yeah, I caved. Between that and his dimples, it melted this mama’s heart.

THROWBACK DANCE PARTY

I was born in 1975. I graduated high school in 1993. The songs on this playlist reflect that. It’s either totally your thing or it’s totally not. I’m having a kitchen dance party as we speak.

#GOAL: DRINK MORE WATER

According to the Mayo Clinic, the average, healthy adult should drink about 3.76 liters of water for men and 2.7 liters of water PER DAY. Well, there were days I’d struggle to get one bottle of water down. Sometimes it’s just hard! I wanted to do better. So, I got this nifty water bottle!

SILICONE RING? 'I DO'.

I love my beautiful diamond wedding and engagement rings! Don’t get me wrong. But, there are a lot of days I don’t wear any of them. Not because I don’t love my man with all of my heart. Because sometimes they just aren’t functional! Problem solved. I got a silicone ring and it’s my new favorite thing.

PINK HAIR DON'T CARE

Anyone else totally obsessed with Taylor Swift’s new song ‘Me!’ featuring Brendon Urie of Panic! at the Disco? She’s the BEST. I knew her new song would be good. She never disappoints! But, I had no idea it would be THIS good. My daughter, Julianne, and I listen to it on full blast every time we get into the car together! And every time it plays, Jules asks for pink hair… just like Taylor!

DEEP BREATHS...

It’s been a challenging week. A horrible… and I do mean horrible… virus attacked our entire network at the radio station and we’ve been s t r u g g l i n g behind the scenes. I’m a creature of habit and love my routine. This has not been good for my mental game. At all.

A FEW OF MY FAVORITE SPRING THINGS

I have never been so excited for spring in my life. This winter feels like the longest in history. It was SO flipping cold and miserable that most days I wore some form of ‘sweat’ attire. I have some cute winter things in my closet… but when it’s ten degrees… I just can’t. It was all about survival, friends. BUT, spring has sprung! I went shopping the other day and picked up some C U T E new things. Wanted to share my faves!

CHOP CHOP?

I’m contemplating a hair chop. This happens just about every year at this exact time. I love my hairstylist/dear friend because she understands my indecisiveness. Pinterest has only exacerbated this problem because once I start clicking on cute bobs, more of them appear in my feed. Here are a few of my faves at the moment:

MY NEW LOVE FOR QUEEN

Soooo… I don’t like the word hate. I’ll just say I strongly disliked Queen’s music my entire life. And I dabble in all genres of music. But, Queen? I just didn’t get it. Well, until now. I just (finally) watched Bohemian Rhapsody.

PERSPECTIVE

When you replace, ‘why is this happening to me?’ with ‘what is this trying to teach me?’ - everything shifts. Wow. I felt those words this morning as I scrolled my Pinterest feed. Mainly because I had that very epiphany a while back as I lay in my bed, physically and emotionally spent after my sixth miscarriage.

WHY WE WORK

Something I get asked a lot… how do you and Matthew make it all work? People say we look so happy and seem to have it all together. What’s our secret? Well, before I answer that let me assure you… while we are happy, we do NOT have it all figured out and we definitely do NOT have it all together!

That said, here’s my relationship advice. I am definitely not an expert. But, from past relationships I took away lessons. I know what doesn’t work. And, after 17 years together, I now know what does. For us, anyway.
