Fight the New Drug

Fight the New Drug #pornkillslove

Porn kills love. Did you know that? It does. Porn is a drug. It’s addictive. It’s harmful. It’s bad for society. And it’s time to fight the new drug.

I am repeatedly amazed by my little brother and my two sisters. They are tenacious, they are brilliant, they are activists. And, they all have been involved with the Fight the New Drug group and campaign. My baby sister (not really a baby–she’s a senior in high school) started a Fight the New Drug club at her school and was spotlighted on their Instagram page as one of the 12 Days of Fighters representatives. All three of them (including my brother-in-law) wear a #PornKillsLove shirt often. My baby sister wears hers every Friday. Continue Reading

My Thoughts on the Sitcom Parks and Recreation

Another mockumentary sitcom: Parks and Recreation. My thoughts about seeing it for the first time years after it ended!

Yes, yes, I know I just did a post about The Office. But, I had finished that sitcom back around Thanksgiving. Since then, I’d been working on another favorite of my friend, Danica— Parks and Recreation. And, I wanted to write this post while the sitcom was still fresh in my mind. And, guess what, I actually liked it…as did Justin who saw a few episodes here and there. (And guess what was Justin’s favorite part: Ron Swanson! Duh!)

My Top 10 Favorite Toddler and Baby Products

Everyone has their own list of favorite baby products. This list has been successful with both of our kids.

Wow. My baby girl is a year old now. She is walking, starting to talk, sleeping through the night, (loudly) voicing her own opinions, and all around growing up. Sigh. I can’t really call her a baby anymore (but I still will for a long time). Now that she is entering the toddler stage and my son is exiting that stage, I’ve come to realize how many products we have come to love. Despite their vastly different personalities, there have been 10 (toddler and) baby products that we have come to love.

My Thoughts on The Office

My thoughts on the sitcom The Office. ...ups and downs, loves and hates....

I remember The Office being a big deal when I was a teenage and beginning college. I watched the second half of the seasons almost episode to episode. This was when Hulu had just come out and I was so grateful because I could still mostly keep up with it when I went to college. However, I never really watched the first two or three seasons.

My friend, Danica, is obsessed with The Office. Seriously. Like it’s on most days in her house as background noise. Like, she probably can’t count how many times she’s watched all the episodes. Recently, Netflix took off How I Met Your Mother (my favorite sitcom). And, I had just finished another run-through of Friends. So, with Danica on my mind, I decided to do my first full run-through of The Office.

Stitch Fix

Kenidy Drawstring Knit Top & Camilla Fleece Lined Drawstring Jogger Pant | Stitch Fix

I have always wanted to do a Stitch Fix. However, as with all subscription boxes, I never liked the subscription monthly fee. And, with Stitch Fix specifically, I never was impressed with prices of the clothing–way to expensive for my taste.

But, when my friend, Liz, shared a code to waive the styling fee for all her readers, I had to jump at the opportunity. I love things like Stitch Fix. They help me expand my wardrobe by getting others’ opinions on what fashion I’d look good in!! Continue Reading
