"In Darkness a Light Shines on Me"

what a great nap, i feel totally disoriented and i’m frothing with hate 

(via mock-turtle-soup)

Going on vacation with your husband and toddler means that you might end up having a Chinese food takeout picnic on the bathroom floor with your husband while your toddler sings herself to sleep in the next room.

Cold beers and relationship conversations in a whisper make me happy. We love each other and while we have our fair share of issues to work out, we work out. So thankful for my little Prescott babes.

Our trip to Vegas day 1 as told by my iPhone.

So far, I have decided this is my favorite place ever and I never want to leave and Lennon is the world’s best traveling toddler and life is just too good.

Packed the three of us in my itty bitty Mini and now we are headed to Vegas for adventure!

I seriously wish I had a friend who would come over every Thursday and love this show as much as I do.

Sitting in a doctor’s office freaking out when the radio plays the song I listened to on repeat while drinking and crying during the worst breakup I’ve ever had.
Instantly the pain comes rushing back bc music does that and my heart is breaking all over again.
So it finally ends and I let out a sigh of relief when the next song comes on…

Only to go back to nearly crying again because it’s the favorite song of someone I loved who died.

Easily two of the most horrible moments of my life shoved in my face back to back.

Thanks, life.
Next time could you please just drop a piano on my head? Thanks, you bitch.

Lennon’s view, poor girl!

  • Early Feminists: Oh hey, we see that you can vote. We would like to vote also. I mean, since most of those laws effect us too and all.
  • Men: YOU JUST WANT SUPERIORITY OVER MEN!
  • Mid-century Feminists: Hey, that whole thing about how you can have careers and earn a living wage outside the home? Yes that sounds nice, we'd like the option to do that as well.
  • Men: YOU WANT A MATRIARCHY, THAT'S WHAT YOU WANT!
  • Late 20th century Feminists: Hey we would like to make our own choices about our reproductive health, just like you've always had.
  • Men: YOU ARE TRYING TO TAKE MEN'S RIGHTS AWAY!
  • Modern-day feminists: Hey, if you could you stop sexually assaulting/harassing us and them blaming us for it, that'd be pretty great.
  • Men: THIS IS MISANDRY, MISANDRY I SAY! FEMINISTS HAVE GONE TOO FAR!
  • Feminists: Um...
  • Men: THE END OF MEN IS NIGH! MALE OPPRESSION IS REAL! THE MATRIARCHAL AGE IS UPON US!
