Honestly, Girlfriend.

Early on in my relationship with the hub, he said something that I will never forget. We were at a party or a bar - somewhere where drinking was taking place - and a group of women walked in.  One woman was wearing an outfit that she shouldn’t have worn because she was spilling out of her top and skirt. The hub (boyfriend at the time) asked, “Who lied to her?”  I was confused. What was he talking about?  He clarified: When she was getting ready to go out for the night she must have asked her friends how she looked.  Someone lied to her when they said that she looked good.

Forgive

I recently shared that my one and only New Year’s resolution for 2019 is to forgive. To clarify, I am not asking for forgiveness from anyone (even though I should); it’s me who will be forgiving others. I made the resolution before I realized how complicated it is to forgive. From January 1, 2019 to this date, I haven’t forgiven anyone for anything. I tell myself that it’s perfectly fine that I haven’t started forgiving because resolutions are not about instant change.  But really, I’m just a procrastinator.

Now What?

Ok, it’s the new year. I’m organized. I’m well-rested. I am ready to face 2019. As for resolutions, I made one and I also made three daily goals. Rather than getting into why I chose “Forgive” as my one and only NY resolution, I thought it was way more important to talk about what we do with all the gift cards we received over the holidays first. I mean, priorities.

5 Dog Pinches You'll Want

It’s the very last day of December and I’m looking at a section in the mudroom. For those who don’t need a mudroom in your home - consider yourself lucky.  Our mudroom is the space between our garage and our kitchen and in the winter, we hang all sorts of jackets and we stuff our hats, gloves and scarfs in rows of drawers. You can find boots under benches which are there to sit on while you put on said items. This same room is where we keep our washer and dryer and there is also a sink and a hamper.

Y'all Need Another Gift Guide

I recently asked Jay-Jay to join Thoughtful Pinch as a contributor because she has great taste and she has a passion for finding the perfect gifts for the people on her gift list. While Jay-Jay was coming on board as a thoughtfulness curator, Thoughtful Pinch as a company, was starting to grow and has been picking up momentum. I asked her to be a manager, mostly keeping me from going insane.

Witherspoon's Holiday Gift Guide

My daughter knew my friend Wendy was famous even before she actually became famous. I’ve known Wendy for years and so when my daughter would see her name or hear me talking about her, she would say, “Oh, she’s famous!” I never corrected my daughter when she would say this but I think she was mixing up Wendy with Reese Witherspoon. Which in her defense, is very easy to do! Both of them are adorable and both are savvy business women!
