I do things and talk about stuff.

Review: The Magnolia Story

Today I am going to be talking about The Magnolia Story by Chip and Joanna Gaines. You probably know this amazing couple already, and if you don’t – you should! They are the television personalities of Fixer Upper on HGTV, which is currently recording its fifth season! They are a dynamic duo that run a realty and construction company which is the premise behind their show in Waco, Texas.

Talking To Myself

I must remind myself that it's okay to not be perfect all the time; it's okay to not always have it together; and it's okay to not always be where you want to be in life. Life is a constant balancing act and it's normal to feel like you're not giving it your all, all the time.

10 Pregnancy Symptoms Nobody Told Me About

We have all seen the movies that poke fun at some of the more well-known side effects of pregnancy such as morning sickness, fatigue, etc. Additionally, we have all heard the horror stories from women in our lives who have been pregnant before about food cravings, swollen feet, and more.

So, today I wanted to talk about the top ten side effects that I wish I had known about!

What You Need For Your Spring Wardrobe

I have put together this post about all the items that I think are needed for a great spring wardrobe! Spring is a tricky season because you still need some colder-weather gear for those chilly, rainy days but you also need lightweight clothing for those hot, almost summer days! While it is a lot, it is everything you could possibly need/want for this season & it’s a lot less than I had before!

Review: Big Little Lies

I apologize for the delay on this review! I planned on doing it much earlier since I finished reading the book in January. However, with the release of the television show on HBO – I wanted to hold off so I could compare the novel and the show together. I do not want to reveal any big spoilers for the story here so if you want to know what happens, I recommend buying the book or watching the show!

Our Great Smoky Mountain Adventure

Vacations are a way to decompress, to take a break from your hectic day-to-day life, and to make cherished memories with loved ones. We recently took a family vacation to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, Tennessee.

Snow Day!

Ahh, spring. Spring season is upon us and that makes most people think of sunshine, rain, flowers blooming, and birds chirping. So imagine my surprise to wake up to a snow day at the Gill household today! We’re not quite out of the woods of winter yet, and today really made that clear.

Embracing Your Style

As we grow older, we tend to learn a lot about ourselves and we learn to embrace who we truly are. While I am still struggling to accept myself in all facets of life, one area I have recently tackled is my wardrobe.
