My Lamps Don’t Match: An Ode to Transparency
Y'all, I have a confession. None of the lamps in my house match each other. And no, I'm not talking about having mismatched lamp shades. I'm talking different sizes, shapes and colors. To be honest, having different lamps isn't a big deal to me. Since Michael is about to go back to school our newlywed … Continue reading My Lamps Don’t Match: An Ode to Transparency
Monday Musings: Episode 5
Happy Monday, friends! I am writing this from my bed because Hubs and I have been sick all weekend. Which, while it was a bummer because there was fun plans we had to cancel, it was really nice to just r.e.s.t. We've got a marathon of a month coming up, so it was good to … Continue reading Monday Musings: Episode 5
How I: Balance.
Healthy lifestyle. Part of me doesn't want to write this, because when it comes to healthy lifestyle people can be possessive and judgemental. Possessive as in my-way-is-the-best-way, and judgemental as in that-is-NOT-how-you-should-live-your-life-in-order-to-be-healthy. So, before I start, please know that these are the things that work for me. If you are vegan, vegetarian, paleo, keto, flamingo … Continue reading How I: Balance.

Night two of our marriage I witnessed him frantically talking about, "The little white candles! Please … Continue reading Sleep Talking.
Monday Musings: Episode 4
Welcome to Monday Musings, friends! I hope you had a swell weekend. Mine was pretty great because it included free Papa John's pizza and window shopping for my birthday (and reminding Michael about 4 times that my birthday is the 11th next month - oops). It did not, however, include time for blogging which is … Continue reading Monday Musings: Episode 4
How I: Am Becoming A Morning Person
This title should really say "How I: Am Trying To Become A Morning Person But It's A Bumpy Road To Get There And I'm Actually Not Even There Yet. But that's too wordy so I shortened it significantly. Now, I want to preface this post by saying that I am NOT a morning person. I … Continue reading How I: Am Becoming A Morning Person
My Go-To Meals
I thought I would share a few of my go-to meals during the week. Because meals that are cheap, healthy and liked by picky husbands everyone are hard to come by. So, here are a few that we have frequently in the Gatlin home. 1. Pesto Corn Pasta (I got this from Blue Apron, so … Continue reading My Go-To Meals
Monday Musings: Episode 3
Wow, third Monday in a row. TBH this is the longest that I've ever consistently blogged in my life. When I was in high school I had a little blogspot blog, but I don't know if that counts. Either way, it's not been a difficult record to break. Here is my 3rd Monday Musings. I … Continue reading Monday Musings: Episode 3
