Win Chin Up Fitspiration Plus Exclusive Deal

Win a Shirt from Chin Up Apparel

When I first started working out, I wore whatever old t-shirt I could find. After I started taking it more seriously, I started buying actual “workout clothes.” My daily wardrobe consists of solid colored shirts (usually a shade of pink or blue) and black or gray tech pants. Pretty much every…single…day. But I noticed a […]

What Is That NFL Camouflage Stuff?


When I was watching football on Sunday I kept seeing players and coaches wearing NFL gear that looked like it was camouflage.

Ugly Christmas Sweaters for Sports Teams

Ugly Christmas Sweaters for Sports Teams

Every year someone in my house ends up needing an “Ugly Christmas Sweater” either for theme day at school or a party.

Mom Gets Braces: Know When to Hold ‘Em (9)

Braces After 17 Months

I’m happy to say that I am going to be ending my “Mom Gets Braces” Series before too long because there is not much left to report! Today I had a checkup where the orthodontist proclaimed my teeth practically perfect. After 6 months of wearing the elastics pretty much around the clock (although I wasn’t […]

Braces 14 Months

It’s been 4 months since I last wrote about my braces, and that is because there really wasn’t much to report. I’m now 14 months into the process with approximately 10 months to go (although I am hoping for 9 months left to have them off by Christmas). Ever since I started my triangle elastics […]
