✨ So I had this idea to do a “no spend November”. ✨But then I was like “no way am I sharing that I’m doing this bc what if I slip up and fail miserably in front of a bunch of people” (embarrassing 🤦🏻♀️) ✨ Well it’s nov 16, I’ve officially made it halfway through November and guess what... I haven’t bought ANYTHING 🙌🏻(that I didn’t actually *need). Idk if I’ll make it to the end of the month...but here’s to trying. 🍻 Happy Friday! Leave me a comment if you have done this or want to do this! 🤚🏻And before you comment on my cup☕️... it’s a prop and it’s empty bc I’m not spending this month💵🤣. 🦃Have you ever heard of this or tried it?! I read about this on Pinterest and felt compelled to try it! 🤷🏻♀️I’m sorry I cannot link my sweater bc it’s from @forever21 2 years ago but to shop this look (substituted a similar sweater) click the link in my bio ➡️shop my IG🖤. #affordablefashion #budgetfashion
Hi!! 👋 . Ok, so there are a lot more of you guys around here lately and honestly I’m so flattered 😊. And I figured since I only have 130 friends on my personal IG page...most of you guys here don’t really know me at all and I wanted to tell you a little about myself...the stuff you wouldn’t know just by looking at these little squares or the 150 characters in my bio. . ✖️I’m 33 ✖️since I’m being honest (as I usually am), I decided to start a blog on a Monday am, thought of the name by Monday pm and woke up the next morning and started it. Before June I knew very little about IG or blogging or how much work actually went into it and I kinda wing it day to day. 💁🏻♀️ ✖️I randomly stopped eating meat over a year ago and I’m pretty sure I won’t be eating it again ✖️I want to be a 🍷 drinker bc it looks so classy and relaxing, but I really only like🍻 ✖️ I’m only 5’0, with the shortest legs and a too long for my body torso (completely disproportioned 💁🏻♀️ ✖️ If there was a bone in our bodies that makes us care at all about sports, then I’m missing it. I enjoy hanging for football parties and going to sporting events, but I’m only there for the food and beer ✖️Even when I’m trying to talk quietly I’m still really loud. 🙉 ✖️I think sarcasm and puns are the best figures of speech (are they forms or figures?🤷🏻♀️) I don’t think an hour goes by that I am not using one of them ✖️I live under a rock and know so little about past/current news but when I try watch the news it all freaks me out 🙈and then I’m researching how to move to Canada🇨🇦(again). 💁🏻♀️ ✨if you made it to the end(thanks for reading)...comment below with anything random about yourself or what we have in common or are polar opposites about! 👇🏻
🎶 I like big sleeves and I cannot lie 🎶. If you follow my stories then you know that isn’t the first time today that I’m singing ‘baby got back’...but it was the first thing that popped in my head when I noticed my hands aren’t visible bc my sleeves are so big💁🏻♀️ 📱 I did a poll in my stories earlier and so many of you love cleaning tips...and cleaning is my jam, so I’ll definitely share more!

BUT these iPads felt like they were basically free bc I used money from my @acorns account 🐿🙌🏻.

Guys, this ootd has been on serious repeat lately 🤣💉. And pink is not really my color, I only picked a pink stethoscope bc I thought it would be less likely to be stolen...since my black one prior was stolen while I went into the bathroom 🙄. ✖️Normally I work 3, 12 hour shifts at a surgicenter (😍🙌🏻) but I have been picking up shifts in my old stomping grounds of neurosurgical ICU (bc pools and life are expensive things💸). ✖️Days I work skip dinner (🙄... I know), run as fast as I can to the shower holding my scrub pants up so they don’t dare touch the floors, I shower, read books with the kids and tuck them in and then try my best to stay awake with Dadam, which almost always ends in me falling asleep mid-show 💁🏻♀️. .✖️I worked in Neuro ICU today..and all I have to say is that you think you have problems, but man when you see first hand what nurses/people in medicine see, you realize your problems are just so small compared to what people are really faced with. .✖️moral of this story...don’t worry and be miserable over stupid stuff, about the nonsense of life, try to just spend your days being happy and enjoying it bc things change so fast all of the time for so many people that are all just like me and you. #iamanurse #icunurse #behappy
The kids had so much fun at their first @njdevils game, we had the privilege of seeing @letsg0devs sing the national anthem, which brought me to tears and then we met her, madison was so was happy to tell her what a good job she did!! And to make it even better on our way out, we got to take a pic with the “squirrels” as Adam called them 🤣 . OH and the devils won....I’m not at all into sports, just there for the food and drinks 💁🏻♀️. Happy Saturday! #familyfunday #njdevils
I donut know about you, but I’d take desserts over flowers any day 😜🍩. Dadam holds the 🔑 to my 🖤. Which do you prefer? Leave a 🌸 or 🍩 👇🏻 🖤 fun fact..my husband’s name is actually Adam. But I cleverly renamed him Dadam (Adam+Dad=Dadam) when we had our son Adam, I couldn’t do the ‘big’ and ‘little’ thing, bc I’m a little patti 🙄. #donutsarelife #eatmoreholefoods
Leopard print ✔️ Never thought of myself as a leopard top kinda girl...but with leopard everywhere I had to give it a whirl 🐾. (p.s. I love when things rhyme just by chance and then I immediately feel the urge to just keep it going🤣) ⚡️My entire outfit is on the blog and all SO affordable 🙌🏻 aside from my moto jacket the rest is under $23🙌🏻🙌🏻. Also talking about how I stay current with fashion trends without breaking the bank 💰. ⚡️AND this cami is on sale for under $11 (I’m wearing an XS, and in my opinion cannot be worn with a bra, petals only) and my most loved @freepeople jeans are on sale for only $19! They are the answer to my #shortgirlproblems * I am 5’0 and the short length is perfect. ⚡️And my shades are on sale for $20 😎. #leopardtop #affordablestyle
