The Highly Sensitive Person: Learning to Embrace the Trait

I have always wondered why I take things so personally. Sometimes it is as extreme as when I’m driving on the highway and a car comes whipping around me, I get my feelings hurt that they cut me off. I realize that may seem a bit crazy- for goodness sakes, I don’t even know the person, their situation, or anything! They could be rushing to the hospital, in labor, for all I know. But I am incredibly sensitive. Throughout the years, I have constantly heard, “Quit being so  ...

TACO BOUT A PARTY!!!! I’m a bit of an obsessed planner.  I look on Pinterest for months, and in this case, well over a year for ideas.  When I was still pregnant with Lucy, I was pinning on a secret Pinterest board, ideas for Lou’s first big party.  And you know what happened?  A month before her birthday I changed themes.  It was originally going to be a luau- how cute is that?  Lucy’s Luau?!  Well, it was Fiesta time in Texas over Lucy’s birthday and I just had to  ...

Weekly Review

Here are a few things that I have enjoyed this week: Read: photo via At Home Blog Joanna Gaines wrote “A Letter to Moms” around Mother’s Day last year that still resonates with me.  Even if you’re not a mom, I think it is a great article to understand what the mothers before us have dealt with and gone through.  So encouraging! This was my second week at work and Monday night was an event hosted by the Boise Convention and Visitors Bureau which meant  ...

Building My Spring Capsule Wardrobe with Thred Up & Swap

The time has come!  The wardrobe update for Spring will be happening this next month!  Warmer weather, lighter clothes, brighter colors…. AH!  I have been working on part 3 of creating a capsule wardrobe, and I thought it would be more fun to post about my upcoming capsule than my past winter items.  So, as I have been shopping around for items to wear during the upcoming months to fill the holes in what I already own, I am gravitating towards secondhand or  ...
