The Family That Plaids Together Stays Together

Lifestyle personal life

Spoiler alert for friends and family, as this is the photo we used this year for our holiday cards… and our cards haven't been mailed out yet!  In fact, they haven't yet arrived.  Thursday, I spent the day at my mom's, picked Emerson up from school, came home, took a shower and we all got in our pajamas and took this photo in our living room.  We took maybe six photos,…

It was a lot, but I took some time for myself.  While commitments caused me to miss the gym twice…

holiday gift guide for tweens and teens

Gift Guide for Teens and Tweens by a Teen

Lifestyle

Last year I invited my friend Marley to write a holiday gift guide for tweens. You all loved it so much, I invited Marley to return this year and provide the coolest gifts for older tweens and younger teens in your life.

I Started Weight Training One Year Ago: The Results

Fitness and Wellbeing Lifestyle

A year ago, I was in the worst shape of my life. At 5’3” I was a bit over 200 lbs. I had back pain, knee pain, and occasionally got migraines. My allergies were terrible, I was always tired and felt as though I was living life in a fog. I’ve never been athletic, but always felt I was still strong… but even my strength was fading. I don’t “do”…

I'm writing this Thursday evening from a hospital waiting room as a loved one recovers from a successful surgery. On the ride to the hospital my sister mentioned my post of what to wear for a hospital vigil and I realized I didn't even think of it when I got ready today.  But rereading it I followed the instructions; I wore my Universal Standard black overalls with a cream Lands'…

Robin Givhan's piece for the Washington Post about plus size fashion, featuring marketing photos for ELOQUII and Universal Standard

Don’t Read the Comments: Policing Plus Sized Women’s Bodies

Lifestyle

I read the comments. I should know better. I loved Robin Givhan’s latest article about plus size fashion and was so excited I clicked the comments button to see if others were as awed as I.  I figured I’d see some familiar names in there of fellow bloggers or friends. Instead I scrolled and scrolled, and scrolled and scrolled past comments attacking model La’Shaunae Steward and plenty of “advice” geared towards overweight women.…
