Hello! It’s been a bit, hasn’t it? Life got kind of crazy for a while. I started a new job, but continued to look for new jobs, and life has left me quite drained and exhausted. I always enjoyed blogging, and The Midwestern Mrs. is something I dreamed of doing for a long time, so now I’m back at it. 👋🏻 Here are some things that I’m loving this Friday (other than the fact that it’s Friday – hell yeah!)
Last week I finally finished my tattoo of my beautiful baby girl, Chloe. It was done by the very talented Megan Mac. For those who have read the blog before, you know how obsessed I am with my pup, and it just made sense to get her tattooed on my body. It’s healing nicely, although I’m in the itchy stage.
I got some Tarot cards from The Creeping Moon on Etsy and I’m in love with them. The artwork is absolutely beautiful, and I love all the nature themes. I’ve been pulling a card every morning to start the day and it’s so enjoyable to focus on that before starting a hectic day.
So, I love everything to do with The Bachelor – even though this season of Bachelor in Paradise was kind of boring – but to fill my fix during the off season, I’ve been watching Love Island on Hulu. Guys, it’s so incredibly trashy and delightful and wonderful. All the contestants are British, so I have to have the captions on so I can understand what they’re saying, and even then I’m still sometimes confused. Mugging? Grafting? Pied Off? Who knows, but it’s great and if you want something mindless and trashy (in a good way!) to watch, I recommend this.
You know how much I love a good podcast, so your girl is here with another recc. If you like True Crime, or if you just love Keith Morrison like me, check out The Thing About Pam. It’s so addicting! I binged all the available episodes in one day and I’m already waiting for the next episode to come out.
Speaking of true crime podcasts, I finally read Stay Sexy & Don’t Get Murdered: A Definitive How-To Guide by Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark and it was so good! I devoured the entire book in like two days, which is pretty quick for how crazy my life has been right now.
I’m happy to be back with y’all here. I’ve truly enjoyed blogging, and I hope that you’ve enjoyed reading the bullshit that I have to say. Thanks for reading, friend!
