Perks of Being Ordained

I am an ordained minister. Say what?! I bet you didn’t know that about me. Today I’m going to share some of the perks of being ordained. But first, let’s talk about how I got there. Several years ago on a Sunday morning, I was unmotivated to get out of bed and go to church.  […]

New Do and Weird Rules. Wait What?!

If you ask me what my strength is I’d say my flexibly. Not the stretchy, bendy type of flexibility. But the kind where you go with the flow. I can adapt with a new situation and go with the flow. I don’t always love change but I will definitely handle it in stride. If you […]

One Grey’s at a Time

I’ve known my friend Jody since 6th grade. For almost as long as we’ve known each other she’s been trying to get me to watch Grey’s Anatomy. I’ve always told her I would but still haven’t. We go round and round with this. This weekend our husbands were out of town for work so we were […]

My Sock Game is Strong

The Minnesota State Fair (sad face) is over and I already miss it. The food. The people watching. The Socks. Wait what?! You read me right. I said socks. I like great socks and I cannot lie. For realz I do. I know some people hate socks, especially when they get them as a gift. Not […]

Oh the Food You’ll Eat at the MN State Fair

The Minnesota State Fair is a week away. One. Week. Away. While I hate that it signals the end of summer, I love the fair. If I could Ground Hog Day one day, it would have to be the first day of the fair. Everything is still super clean. You’re not walking over trampled corn […]

Mind Blowing Encounters at Longmire Days

I’m not the best when it comes to vacation planning. Sure, I like to look at places to go. I like to daydream about being on vacation. But when it comes down to it, I’m not great about going on vacation. Some mind blowing encounters at Longmire Days may have me rethinking that. I don’t […]

The Importance of Making Health a Priority

“To keep the body in good health is a duty… otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.” What a great quote by Buddha. It makes a great point – good health builds a solid foundation for a strong and clear mind. So today I’m talking about the importance of […]

7 Things I Gained From Attending a Fundraiser

This week I attended a fundraiser breakfast for Cornerstone.  It’s been a while since I’ve been to one. Probably since my days in the Junior League. I believe it’s important to find organizations you want to donate your time and money to and this was a great opportunity to do that. Here are seven things […]

36 Hours in Chicago

My husband and I used to go to Chicago all of the time. We loved going to Cubs games, Six Flags, and shopping downtown. It’s only a six hour drive from our house so it’s kind of crazy that we don’t go more often. Especially with how much we love road trips. That’s why our recent […]
