.. and truth be told I learned SO MUCH. 1. We truly bitch about everything. I'm sorry, that may be too blunt for some of you. You know, I was raised to never question someone on their political stance or ask about their salary. This doesn't mean I avoid any heavy conversations, it just means … Continue reading I Took a Social Media Diet…
It was coming. I didn't need the weather man to confirm it on the local news, or for my friends to share the warnings on their Facebook feeds. The storm was coming and even though the black clouds would mix into the moonlight and the wind would destroy everything in its path, I was chasing … Continue reading The Storm PT1
First of all, thank you. You may never know or understand the value of our friendship in my eyes, but this is where I hopefully can show you how grateful I am for you and our relationship. You helped me see that my insecurities were not my own. I could read Cosmo articles about body … Continue reading To the Friend Who Helped Me Become Honest with Myself
I was born and raised Catholic in a small farm town of about 12,000. The opening day of shotgun season was practically as important as Christmas, and without Friday night football games I'm not sure we would have known what to do with ourselves.

I think that's one of the best tools we as women have - the power to help one another through the adventures of life. Everything is a learning experience, and we'll all make mistakes. One of the biggest things we can do for one another is tell our stories and support those we have the chance to work with.
I know I'm young, and millennials are supposed to never settle down, but I don't think I'd be able to survive without splurging and turning this place into a real home. Plus, I've always considered myself to be a product of the wrong generation.
I, by no means, consider myself a Disney expert. I’ve never been to the parks, there’s quite a long list of movies I haven’t seen & I’d say the most of my childhood Disney experiences came from the TV channel. Seriously. Special place in my heart for Hannah Montana (RIP,) The Suite Life and Lizzie … Continue reading Don’t Judge a Fox by his Hustle
I haven't written a basicblonde post since...a long time ago. I actually received an email today from WordPress notifying me that my domain would be renewed in 60 days and I was like ok, cool. Even though I only write once in a blue moon anymore, I'm keeping it because knowing I've at least invested … Continue reading Kristin & Growing Younger
