How To Get Out of a Career Rut

Topaz and Sapphire Career Rut

Going through a career rut? Been there, done that. I know what it’s like and how frustrating it can be. I’m sure I’ll experience many more throughout my professional career, but here are five tips that have helped me through the ones I’ve experienced thus far.

Flying with a Puppy

Dog Carrier Tote Bag c/o Amazon, however all opinions on the product are my own. Flying with a puppy (for free) can be hard and nerve wracking if you’re unprepared. Since Charlotte is only one year old, her behavior can still be unpredictable. Sure, we could’ve paid the $300 for peace of mind and easy traveling, but I’d rather live life on the edge a little bit…which is why …

Quaint New England

When Brady and I landed in Boston, I felt like I was “home” in a way. It’s funny how certain places can start feeling like a home away from home even when you only visit a couple of times a year. I guess that’s one of the beauties of marriage and sharing a life together: your own home and family become each other’s home and …

Happy 26th Birthday, Tee!

Where in the world would I be without this girl? She completes me. She’s the water to my fire, my biggest listening ear, my personal eyebrow plucker, my saving grace when I don’t know what top to purchase at TJ Maxx (because I obviously can’t get all five of them). You were born into this world under tougher circumstances than most, but it’s made you a …

I have been wanting to train for a half marathon for forever. I’ve started, I’ve stopped, I’ve thought about it, I stopped thinking about it. For a while I think I only wanted to do it because it was “trendy.” Well rule #1 you’ll probably never be able to do something if it’s for someone else but yourself. I started training for my half about …

5 “Make You Think” Documentaries Streaming On Netflix

I love a good documentary. Not the boring types you used to be forced to watch in school, but ones that really take a topic and allow it come to life. It’s a good break from watching fictional stories (although I love those too) unfold on the screen before you so you can instead take something valuable away from what could otherwise be considered a mindless …

Happy Birthday Charlotte Barkley!

Yesterday, July 30th Miss Charlotte Barkley turned one year old! Brady and I both agree that we treat, spoil, and maul our puppy child like she is a human child, but we don’t even care. God bless our future human children’s cheeks and bums that they won’t get pinched off by the time they turn one. Charlotte Barkley, thanks for adding so much spunk, pep, and …

The Best Workout Playlist for 90’s Babies

I have a love-hate relationship with exercise. (Love the results, hate every minute of it). One way I can better my workout experience is if I have some tunes to keep me pumped and going. I recently put together a playlist that I am really diggin’ at the moment. Click here to listen to it or download it on Spotify. Hit play & get your …
