One millennial’s attempt to question authority, remain (happily) married, be pennywise and organized, and prep for the future.

Sometimes after I shower, I spike my hair into a #fauxhawk. Because I can. #innerbadass #notreally via Instagram http://ift.tt/22E4TxR

It has been so long since I did a meme on here, and I finally found one that I thought was fairly interesting. Some of these questions are super hard to answer, but they made me think, so here you go: 1. If you were a character from any short story or novel, who would you be?

Guess the birds like cheap birdseed. I fill this feeder every other day just to keep my cats entertained (or as I like to call it, "tortured"). Will get a better quality seed in the fall. #bird #birds #poopybirds via Instagram http://ift.tt/1r4k6KT

Week 22 in my #housewife #bulletjournal. Thankful to @boho.berry for reminding me that my #bujo is just as valid as other journals even though I don't doodle or use common media/formats. Proud to be a part of the supportive, welcoming, beautiful #bulletjournalcommunity. #bujojunkies #wearebujo #bulletjournallove #handwritin

Week 21 in my 2016 #housewife #bulletjournal. Still managed to get things done despite being completely absorbed by a new-to-me TV show, #republicofdoyle. Haven't loved a show this much aside from #JAG and #ER (which is saying something to those who remember the 8th grade JAG #addict I was). #housewifelife #bujo #handwritin

The Man and I have been reading books together since our dating days, and we typically read books by one of our favorite authors, Fr. James Martin. This recent one is no exception, and Becoming Who You Are stuck with me more than usual. The book discusses the idea that when we act upon our calling, life feels more complet

Perfect Friday night: #bingewatching @allanhawco in #republicofdoyle on #netflix, and have #tillamook black pepper smoked white cheddar, an inappropriately sized #brownie, and the couch all to myself!

I have so much more #respect for our #airmen, #sailors, #soldiers, and #marines now that I have had an #mre. It was #awful. The meat ravioli was barely passable as food, and the bread was disappointing. Corn nuts were good, and dried cranberries were okay. Didn't drink the coffee or fruit punch. Cheese spread was horrific.

Was walking through the grocery store today when I saw a nice looking older gentleman. I smiled at him, he winked at me, and it totally made my day. #antifeminist #mademyday #wink #nicetobenoticed (The man pictured is Sam Elliot, an actor, not actually the man that winked at me.

Spooky insides of Fort Columbia, the most intact fort on the #northwestcoast. Few places make my hair stand up, but there were sections of this fort that were just #eerie. We were completely alone at the fort, so it was extra quiet. #fortcolumbia #nofilter #latergram via Instagram http://ift.tt/1rggHJd

Week 18 in my 2016 #housewife #bulletjournal. #Vacation at last! Had a busy few days leading up to it, but our trip to #longbeachwa was great! Still, glad to be home and back in my routine again.

Due to the insanity that is summer, I've taken a leave of absence from my blog.  Many events and changes this summer, so I haven't had a chance to write much.  I dearly miss writing, and I often think of little things to post, but I don't have a minute to write down those ideas.  Seriously.  How crazy has this summer be

The food.  Oh the food!  We tried so much new food! If you've done any reading here, you'll know that The Man and I are picky eaters.  That isn't to say that we're "refined" in our tastes as much as "cheap."  We prefer PB&Js and plain lettuce salads to fancy stuff.  Our biggest complaint about

Having walked over thirty miles by this point in our trip, The Man and I were ready for a vacation from our vacation!  On Thursday morning, we rolled our aching bodies out of bed early for a busy final full day.  After breakfast, we took the Metro five stops to Capitol South where we walked another few blocks to the U.S.

After a brutal 10+ mile day on Sunday and some serious jet lag, The Man and I eased our way into the week on Monday.  We slept late, finally getting to breakfast around 10:00am.  I patched up my blistered toe the best that I could with my travel first aid kit, but it hurt terribly. After breakfast, we walked down to the

The Man and I went on vacation!  We went on our first real vacation since our honeymoon (four and a half years ago) without parents or camping equipment.  This was my first trip to the east coast, and it was The Man's first time in the District of Columbia.  He had previously been to Boston, Massachusetts, and Alexandria
