If you know me in real life, then you know that I'm a big ol' bleeding heart, and I LOVE to give back. NOT because I'm so amazing, generous, or unselfish (I'm not, just ask John), but more so because I know exactly what it means to receive that kind of "good" in your life. You see, not only am I a former social worker, but I'm also a former foster kid. One who's been the recipient of more than one bag of donated clothes, shoes, toys, and almost anything else you can think of.Read More
Y'all can just thank my extreme procrastination and inability to multitask for the fact that this is going up the DAY BEFORE Valentine's Day. So, lean in close....this is what we're gonna do. Should you be an extreme procrastinator like me (duh. you're my people), then we're taking a note from the husband's playbook. We'll buy the gift, and then PRINT A PHOTO to slip inside a valentine's card. GENIUS.Read More
Remember how, in college, you used to wear things that are basically horrifying when you see them now in pictures?
(Also, thank you Jesus that I have to actually locate printed photos, and there's no record of that ISh on Facebook. Because I'm a fossil. #itsfine)Read More
That moment when you DON'T SAVE YOUR BLOG AND THE ENTIRE THING DELETES.
*laughs crazily, scares the dog
Also, hi, 2018? Why doesn't everything automatically save the moment I type it? Why can't I just think it, and skip typing altogether? Why don't we all have pet panda babies?Read More
Let's be honest, y'all. whether you have a valentine, a galentine, or an "I'm single and leave me alone"-entine, vday is a time to treat yo'self. Or at a bare minimum, it's a time to send your significant other a link to this blog, along withRead More
dear boy moms,
I get it.
I. GET. IT.
I'll be totally honest, I was team girl ALL THE WAY after having Ally Grace. She and I have always had a special bond, and I kept thinking how amazing it would be to have nothing but daughters. Because we would obviously spend our time shopping, getting our nails done, and talking about boys. (I'm not a regular mom, I'm a cool mom. Duh.)Read More
As I'm sure you've noticed, I have a VERY SUBDUED sense of style. Said no one ever.
I love prints, and leopard is one of my very favorite patterns. And I feel like a leopard jacket says, I may LOOK like a tired mama, but secretly (or not so secretly) I'm a little bit sassy.Read More
A Bo and his steak. He's basically a miniature Ron Swanson.
Guys if there's one thing you know about me by now, it's this: convenience is my love language. Along with Anthropologie, marshmallows, and Starbucks, #letsbehonest.
Combine convenience with healthy eating, and Sherri is HERE FOR IT. (Sherri is apparently also here for referring to herself in third person.)
When Karv reached out to ask if I would try their subscription service, I really couldn't say yes fast enough. Karv is a monthly subscription service that delivers the finest-quality U.S. meats and oven-ready entrées, straight to your doorstep.Read More
Since it's Friday, and we're talking favorites, can I first share what is my UN-favorite of the week?
Of course you can, Sherri! We are hanging on every word!
Having conversations with yourself is just one of the things you can expect following 2 days of children at home, in your face, hanging on your arm, going to the bathroom with you, and just generally giving you no privacy or space. (INSERT MANIC, CRAZY LAUGH HERE.)Read More
I know y'all think #bloggerlife is oh so fancy, but let me speak a little bit of truth: I really hate dressing up. I may or may not pray to Jesus daily for old ratty sweatpants with worn out waistbands to become SUPER FETCH.
If I am in my house for more than 2 minutes, I require an elastic waistband. And I have definitely been guilty of wearing sweats when it is absolutely NOT socially appropriate.Read More
It's Friday Favorites guys! And guess what? Since it's my first Friday Faves in 2018, I tried to make it EXTRA AMAZING for y'all.
Unfortunately, I failed to save the extra amazing version, SO you'll have to settle for the mediocre version I typed from memory while cursing sleepy Sherri who forgot to hit the freaking save button.Read More
Sorry for the little blog break over the last week, guys. I've been under the weather, BECAUSE CHILDREN. Mine apparently don't like to wash their hands, but they DO enjoy coughing in my face. Would you like to know how I self-diagnosed my illness? (Besides the usual way of googling my symptoms, like the doctor that WebMD says I am?)Read More
Can we all just agree that athleisuring is totally a verb? Pleaseandthankyou
Like, if it were an athletic sport, I would easily medal in it. And can the Olympic committee get right on that?
Y'all, it's been unprecedentedly cold around these parts. Like, sub-30, which means everything should be canceled, while we all go don our Uggs, sweats, and binge watch basically anything on Netflix. Go ahead all you Northerners, roll your eyes. I'll wait.Read More
I'm not gonna lie. Resolutions stress me out. And when I feel stressed, I basically "resolve" to put my pjs on at 4pm and binge watch the Crown.
(Except I can't, because my kids are divas and think it's "boring.")
(They also won't go to bed at 4pm so I can watch tv. Rude.)Read More
It's that time of year, y'all. You know what I'm talking about. The one where all of our favorite retailers join together and go, "you know what we should do? Let's slash our prices like 40% on everything good, and make sure our customers are actually as Christmas poor as they could be."
And you know what? I'm here for it.Read More
I'm just gonna go ahead and say that we all need this blazer for NYE. And maybe just the random Tuesday. Because SEQUINS. Sequins are FUN, y'all. They make me feel fancy, and also help me forget that I wear gym clothes like 95% of the time. A-hem.
Plus, did I mention that this jacket is HEAVILY ON SALE? And I ain't mad about it. (Well, actually I am a little mad, only because it had the AUDACITY to go on sale like 5 minutes after I bought it.)
Until next time,
I totally want to trick y'all into thinking I'm the kind of girl who gets super glam for holiday parties and such, but I think we all know that would be a lie. Unless someone has info on sequined sweatpants, which I could totally be on board with.
What I CAN handle though is a touch of holiday sparkle. Provided it comes with comfortable jeans AND shoes. Because ain't nobody wanna sparkle in a minidress.
(Well, there may be SOME PEOPLE who want that. They are 24, and also NOT ME.)
I'm rounding up a few of my favorite sparkly pieces, ya know, should you need to distract cousin Gene from his lecture on bitcoin with something shiny.
It's a holiday miracle.
Let's be honest fam, some of you have waited til the last minute to finish your Christmas shopping. And by some of you, I mean myself, and those of you who are my people. Others of you had all your holiday shopping done by November 1st, and to you I say this: can you come organize my life? Pleaseandthankyou.Read More
Well, it's here, y'all. It's the most wonderful time of the year. And by that, I mean, it's the time of year where John and I almost get thrown in Target jail for essentially looking sketchy AF, as we complete our annual 30 and 30 Stocking Stuffer Challenge.
In case you missed it last year, here's how it works: Go to your local Target, give each other 30 minutes on the clock and $30 cash, scream GO as loudly as you can (startle some innocent bystanders in the process), and fill the other's Christmas stocking like a freaking boss.Read More
It's Friday favorites, guys. You know what's NOT my Friday favorite? When school closes early because of what is essentially a blizzard to us southerners, and then YOUR POWER IMMEDIATELY GOES OUT. But on the upside, I learned what my kids' Friday favorite is : complaining. And arguing. And complaining some more.
In what is obviously a healthy coping strategy (i.e. escapism), I decided to round up a list of things that have brightened my week, starting with this: everything at Anthropologie is 30% off! And we all know that snow = shopping weather = everything is free. Or something like that.
Let's take a peek at a couple of my other favorites, shall we?Read More
