Escaping the Dreaded Mom Style Rut

From my earlier post, My Style Journey: From high school on, I developed the mentality that it’s not what on the outside that counts.  I can rock inside stuff like being kind and helpful, but I can’t rock the outside stuff.  So I’ve pretty much given up trying any harder than “presentable.”  Clothes were designed to […]

Dia & Co. Review: November 2016

I feel like I’ve been through it all in my relationship with Dia & Co.   My first box was like a great first date. Then with Box #2 we had our first fight.  It’s like Dia & Co. wasn’t even listening to me. I decided to talk about my needs, and we worked out […]

Dia & Co. July 2016:  Another Shot

  I did it. I stewed for a long time, then I presented my constructive criticism to Dia & Co, a plus size styling service, after a less-than-stellar box. You can read all about my negative experience last month, but the gist is that the box didn’t seem like it was for me at all.  This […]

MSB {4}:  Of Baskets and Beetles


This is my Sunday best for the week.  If you’re actually interested in the details, here’s the scoop. My parents offered to watch Bea during Mass, so I was able to wear a necklace!  Fancy, right?  On to more interesting Sundayness. It’s become a thing among the kids that they MUST TOUCH THE BASKET passed […]

MSB {3}:  Delighting in the Imperfect


This week at Mass Moe and I continued our discussion of the miracle of bread and cheese.  (Oh, you haven’t heard about that miracle before?)  He probably loves bread and cheese equally, so I imagine for him the whole thing is as much a mystery as the real Eucharist is.
