Big Boobs: Bras That Fit and a ThirdLove Review

By Brandy | February 20, 2018

If you’re like me, you’re a woman who has searched her entire life for the best fitting bra. Well, maybe not your entire life, but certainly since you started buying your own bras, not the training bras your Mama bought you. I know that you’ve probably been inundated with the ThirdLove bra ads on social…

Too Much of a Good Thing?

By Brandy | January 27, 2018

I’ve often been told I’m too much. Too loud, too overbearing, too mean. I tell it like it is, frequently. I don’t necessarily try to hurt anyone’s feelings, but I am too old to pussyfoot around what’s right and what’s wrong. I’m calling this my #yearoftruth and I’m not afraid to call people out on…

The Mama Meltdown

By Brandy | January 26, 2018

I recently had a Mama Meltdown. You know the kind. You’re stressed. You’re under pressure from the day and one tiny little thing just sets you off. For me, it was my adult-sized son pooping in his pants. He didn’t make a huge mess. It certainly could’ve been worse but the code brown, while I…

Tips for Air Travel With Kids and Kids With Special Needs

By Brandy | January 11, 2018

We are traveling again. Soon, our family of four will be packing up and heading out to a family wedding. This entails us (me) packing for four people, planning the dog’s stay at Grandma’s house while we’re gone, and of course, making all of the travel arrangements. The hubs tries to help, but honestly, he’s…

Saying No Hurts No One

By Brandy | December 15, 2017

Why I Limit My Children’s Schedules I met up with a friend of mine the other day and she was so exhausted. She looked completely wiped out and said she was just run down. I couldn’t help but notice that she had bags under her eyes and looked really exhausted. I was and still am…

Family Guilt Trips

By Brandy | October 24, 2017

A Family Trip I Don’t Enjoy Sometimes, family isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. I mean, I absolutely LOVE my family. I would do anything for my husband, kids, sister, brother, the in-laws, nieces, and nephews. This includes the family I’ve chosen for myself, the friends who are family, or framily. But there are…

#MeToo

By Brandy | October 18, 2017

We’ve seen it. We’ve seen the hashtag that is going around on social media about sexual assault or sexual harassment. It’s been very disheartening to see how many of my friends have been affected by another person abusing them. And typically, it’s perpetrated by a man who is in a position of power. When we…

Getting Back to Yourself: Mama Edition

By Brandy | October 17, 2017

I have an affinity for this subject, finding oneself. And maybe the reason is that I have felt so lost on so many days of my motherhood that I didn’t know where to go. I didn’t know who to turn to, or what to even say to my husband. I wasn’t sure who I was…

Mind Your Own Bees Wax

By Brandy | October 13, 2017

Lately, I’ve just become fed up. Fed up with others telling me how to live my life, and how you should live yours. As moms, we are inundated with “mommy-shamers” who tell us every day we are doing this Mom thing all wrong. It’s my gut instinct to just ignore this unwarranted advice – actually,…

My Mother Was Stolen

By Brandy | October 10, 2017

Our lives changed the day she got her diagnosis. I wasn’t so young that I wasn’t aware of what it meant, but I was quite certain she would beat it. A young girl of 16 doesn’t see death coming. I was more interested in boys, friends, and band. I wasn’t worried about my mom. She…
