Life, Love, Debt, and Positive Vibes

So…. been a hot effing minute since my last post…. and to say a shit ton has happened may be the understatement of the year. I am having a baby and just bought a beautiful new home. Ok no… not quite. But I’ve basically been…

Making New Years Resolutions You’ll Actually Keep

Resolutions. No one keeps them. Everyone has the best intentions. But then Life happens. Or you go back to making excuses about how you’ll start the next week. Still eat bad. Still don’t exercise. Still don’t save money. Whatever it may be… most…

A Joke Gone Too Far: Election 2016

NFL Players and Standing During the Anthem

Lately it seems to be the trend for NFL players to not stand while the national anthem is sung before a game. While it started with one San Francisco player, Colin Kaepernick, it reached a new level this past Sunday when multiple players for various teams decided to sit or…
