Move Over LuLaRoe, There’s a New Kid in Town

I remember when I first discovered LuLaRoe, I feel in love hard. It’s hard to find plus size clothing that fits so when I do, I’m all in. Over time I greedily collected several patterns of styles I preferred on my body. So much so that I ended up stopping completely. I had bought quite…

Sticks and Stones

There has been something weighing on my mind this Christmas season and it all starts in the office. I work with some really incredible ladies. They are beautiful, strong and intelligent and I’m blessed to know each and every one of them. I want to preface this post by saying this is not to be…

Chubby Has Entered The Building

Well it happened. I knew it would one day but I didn’t expect so soon. I’ve worked hard on keeping our home body positive but the truth is that the real world is out there and my daughter would learn other points of views whether I liked it or not. This morning she mentioned that…

How I Wiggled My Way Into Modeling for a Band Merch Store

It all started when the band for KING & COUNTRY sent a friend and I a surprise in the mail. Unpacking the box, we pulled out two super stylish bomber jackets with their logo on the back. We loved them so much, we wanted to come up with a fun way to say thank you….

Using the Word “Fat” in Our Home

Let me start by saying I used the word fat many times before and have come to even accept it over the past few years. I’ve been plus sized long enough to be content with the size I am, focusing more on my health than the scale. It’s been a very good journey for my…

A Plus Size Halloween

If you’re a plus size lady then chances are you’ve had an extremely hard time finding a costume for the Halloween season. The costumes available are either too tight and fit weird or they cost tons of money. There’s really no win when it comes down to it. Not to mention the severe lack of…

Say Something

It’s almost time for the Austin City Limits festival again. Last year was my first time going and I had a blast. I can’t believe how fast this year has gone by but I am excited to say that I will be attending ACL again this year. I don’t know how I’m going to pull…

It Finally Happened!

Just months ago I shared with you all my struggle to once again build our family in Fears, Tears and Pregnancy Woes. By that time we had been trying to conceive for several months with no success and since much wasn’t different from the previous pregnancy, I had begun to contemplate if the extra weight I…

Thoughts After Episode 4 of Project Runway Season 16

It was around this time last year when Tim Gunn flooded headlines stating that designers really need to pay attention to plus size women. There are 100 million women that are larger than a size 12 and yet, most retailers don’t have anything above that. He blamed fashion designers and the retail industry for the…

Conquering Sleep Apnea Part 3

And so, the final part of our saga is finally here. I had gone through all of the initial research and finally gotten my prescription to get my CPAP machine. Things were wrapping up and I was excited to get sleep like I hadn’t had in years. The first step was setting up an appointment…

Conquering Sleep Apnea Part 2

My last post ended with me finding out that I did indeed have sleep apnea and that there were a few options available to me for treatment. This post is a lot more technical in nature but I feel it’s necessary for those who are about to go through the process. It’s a sticky situation…

Conquering Sleep Apnea Part 1

I’ve been waiting for months to finally put this post together. The process has been long and frustrating but I’m hoping it will help others that may be going through the same thing without even realizing it. This is Part 1 of my journey. I still have more steps to take but I’m finally making…
