Why Every Mom Says F*ck

We're all guilty of it. Slipping that lovely 'F' bomb. Some more than others. Nonetheless, it gets dropped. By accident and on purpose. 


When you're a parent. 

I always thought before I had my child that I would really tone down my language and watch my mouth to be a good example. 
& I am. Sort of. 

I pictured myself as Betty Crocker, baking everything on God's green Earth & tucking the sweet babies in at 7 PM. A Mother Teresa if you will.

 How naive of me. After getting left-hooked in the face by motherhood, the picture I previously painted became the lifelong laugh of my days.
This looks more like it:

Or maybe this:

As long as none of you are like this:

I f*cking hate Farrah. Lol.

I love being a mama. It just comes with situations that have me like, F*ckkkk.

I've always had "curse" words in my almost everyday speech. I try not to write on my blog this way too much, I know some are too sensitive for it.
But f*ck 'em.

What a universal word. You can throw it in any sentence, you know? I think it's odd if you don't occasionally use it. It's a stress reliever. Go ahead, it just feels good. Just because I'm a mom doesn't mean I can't say it.

F*ck yeah Martha, I totally f*cking agree.

Here are some prime times when moms say this wonderful word, or secretly want to say it.
  • The kid(s) just broke something.
  • You just broke something.
  • You forgot to grab something. 
  • The wine spilled. (Holy f*ck)
  • School functions. 
  • The sink is full.
  • It's cold outside.
  • Lipstick smeared.
  • Out of milk.
  • You drop something.
  •  The food is burnt.
  • Coffee got cold. 
  • There's a mess.
  • There's not a mess.
  • On your birthday.
  • Not on your birthday.  
You get my point.

Like I said, it's a stress reliever. Being a parent is one of those things where that "frowned upon" word is completely acceptable to use. It was probably my first spoken word, and I turned out pretty okay, right?

When do you use this sentence enhancer? :)

For those with the curse word sensitivity, not to worry. I usually try to filter my posts. But I know I'm not the only one here!

DIY Popsicle Stick Photo Frame

I'm a photo hoarder. I love having perfect shots of every moment. Nice to have memories hanging on the wall. 

I like to get crafty (sometimes). 

Although, I'm not really the DIY guru. I try to find the easiest way to make something out of nothing. It's the lack of effort I enjoy I suppose. 

Photo frames are a MUST in my home. I have some in every room. I wanted a new way to show off the cute little snaps. 

So here I am, telling ya'll how to keep it simple & cute! 

Make a frame from popsicle sticks! 

This is also a project that the kiddos would like to take part in!
I like the popsicles on the basic wooden stick. So to spice it up, I just paint them whatever color I decide. I like black & white photos on a dark background, so black was my first choice.  

Just paint & glue together! Add your photo and maybe some stickers or jewels! 

Easy, cheap, and cute. Wanted to share something a little different. Thanks for reading!

Store Your Makeup the Right Way

If you splurge on your face paint, this post is for you. Take care of your things or you'll cry. 
Everyone needs a crafty way to store their makeup. Knocking your mascara into the sink or your lipstick onto the floor is just unacceptable, you know? 
Don't lose your foundation in the messy basket you put your cosmetics in by the sink & mirror. 

Noooo. Your poor brushes. 

That makeup bag you've had for years... It's time to ditch it. Don't you hate when you open it to grab something and everything spills? Or a powder has broken and spills out everywhere? Ugh. Tragic. 



There is a better (& inexpensive) way. 

Buy some mason jars. Paint them. Add glitter. Whatever your style may be, keep your sh*t organized. 

I love DIY projects. I found this really cute way to glam up your makeup jar on pinterest & I already made three! 

Adorable! How do you store your goods? :)
