MY TOP 5 WEBSITES FOR BUYING/SELLING
USED CLOTHES

I don’t know about you, but I am a big fan of shopping. BIG, BIG fan. When my husband and I still lived in West Virginia, we both had pretty high-paying oil & gas jobs, and since our company covered our living expenses….I shopped a LOT. A shameful amount. Between Amazon, Twice (my favourite online used clothing store that has since gone out of business), J.Crew and REI (to say nothing of my subscription boxes) we had at least one box on our doorstep every damn day.

NURSERY ROUND-UP #1
MARCH 12, 2016

Welcome to the beginning of another (hopefully) re-occurring series of posts featuring my favourite nurseries from around the internet. And by internet, I mean Pinterest. Like, exclusively found on Pinterest. “The internet” was a misleading description.

Anywho, my favourite nurseries tend to be gender-neutral,  and have a simple and clean feel to them. A lot of the time that vibe is also bohemian and indie, but not always.

ZIKA VIRUS CAUSING PANIC FOR PREGNANT WOMEN

PRENATAL DOCTOR APPOINTMENT #1 OF…A LOT.

On Wednesday, I had the weirdest thing happen to me. I was on my way home from work (which is about a one hour drive, depending on traffic) when I started to feel really gassy and bloated. At first – that was not at all remarkable. I’m lactose-intolerant, but still insist on eating dairy, so gassy for me is about par for the course.

But this time,
