finally friday roll with it

it’s finally friday folks and i could about kiss the ground it walks on (unless it goes into a public restroom, or any restroom for that matter). this has been a week of just rolling with the punches you know? I had everything scheduled out and it just didn’t happen. meetings popping up, things taking […]

chicken break

so yesterday was one of those days where nothing went as planned. i was about to leave for the gym when a coworker popped in and said aren’t you coming to the meeting this morning. trying to play it cool i was like you bet! texted nikki my trainer that i’m an idiot and i […]

how to shop a flea in the rain

let’s face it the weather is unpredictable. one minute in michigan it’s sunny and 70 and the next it’s pouring rain and 30 degrees. neither climate (90 or 20) ever keeps me from checking out a good flea market. the secret to a happy rainy flea market shopping experience is the right gear. having the […]

weekend recap home sweet home

it felt so good to be home this weekend friends. i was at a conference in austin, texas since wednesday and it was a pretty intense schedule. with the exception of my quick trip to magnolia it was pretty much the view from inside the hotel. at least it was sunny and warm! it was […]

quick trip to magnolia

bees

so my latest farm project is bees. yep bees. i’ve been taking classes for about a year (not like every week more like once every other month) to really learn about bees how to keep and maintain them. the bee population is rapidly decreasing due to commercial building, pesticides and sprays and other junk we […]

weekend recap home improvement

25 weeks

you guys. how did i get to be 25 weeks pregnant? (don’t answer that). this morning i was putting on my sandals and this is the first time i actually had to rethink my strategy with tying the buckle a bit. every day it becomes a bit more and more real that this babe is […]

baby mama drama

hi my name is abby and i had my first (maybe first and a half) all out baby meltdown about pending baby. it’s not as bad as the movies show. i didn’t throw anything, break anything, joe remained unharmed. but i definitely swirled into an all out panic about what life is going to look […]

weekend recap chicago birthday
