Virgin Blog post. #thatswhatshesaid

Here it is. My first blog post. hmmm…. I have a thousand things and topics to talk about and none of them seem quite right for a first post. Should I talk about liquids? (my blog is basically named after all liquids…) Should I talk about my kids? (nah. they speak for themselves. And they are cute. Really freaking cute.) Should I talk about what I cooked today? (also probably not- my house still smells like slightly overcooked fish…) 

So, here’s me. I am a 30something someone who loves a good glass of wine, the idea of reading books that mean something (I havent read a book in way longer than I would care to admit), coffee, and leggings. Like athletic ones- the more compression the better. I am a wife, mom, dog and cat mom, entrepreneur, friend, aunt, and home decorator. I feel like I have been blogging in my head for my entire life, and now it needs to be a part of my story. (not just the autobiography I play in my head.) 

I spent my childhood trying my darndest to make everyone happy, my teenhood making a name for myself, and my young adulthood drinking and dating my way through Chicago. Legit. I got married to my bestie at 30, preggers with S at the Vegas wedding (#whathappensinvegasdoesntalwaysstaythere), preggers with B at 32, and spent 2017 trying my hardest to not get pregnant. It worked. Thank god. I started a small business when I was -1 day pregnant with B. Nothing like franchising a company the day before you pee on a stick. No stress there. #amiright?

I worked in education for 10 years and never truly loved it. I mean, I liked it and all, but I always had something to complain about. (which is probably part of why I was single until I met my hubs). I love what I do now. I am a hot mess most days (at best), and I don’t wash my hair (that I just chopped off) as much as I should. I miss my kids when they sleep but cant wait until bedtime. 

Did I mention that I love wine, coffee, and workouts? Because I do. I love my soul sisters more than that and rely on them often. Sometimes for the said coffee, wine, and workouts. Enjoy the blog, and check back to see where this crazy life takes me!
