Do you ever walk through your house and think to yourself, “What in the actual world is going on in here?!” Inexplicably there’s a roll of toilet paper on the coffee table, underwear on the stairs and Cheerios in my bathroom. (Always with the underwear...) It’s like a Nick Jr. version of the Real World/ Road Rules challenge. Also my kids have discovered gum and Ninjago so I’m basically waving the white flag and declaring defeat. .

Is there ever a point when we ‘feel’ like a grown up human? I had peanuts and cereal for dinner last night, still dream of being the 100th caller and winning a trip to the amusement park (lady, just get in your car and drive yourself if you care that much), and I haven’t been to the dentist in 2 years. I don’t drink enough water and the last book I read was an expose on The Bachelor franchise. I do make my bed each day and call my mom regularly so maybe that’s a step in the right direction? What’s the least adult thing about you these days? (Keep it clean, folks.)

One of you is about to be very very rich because I have an idea for an app your gonna want to hear. It’s like a timer but better. Whenever a woman has been momming to strenuously, the app books a flight somewhere. And because of cookies or whatever, the app know who we talk to the most and goes ahead and books THEM a trip too. And lastly, because...cookies... the app orders your favorite food and drink and facemask and candy and stuff. We’ll call it An App a Day Sends Mommy Away and the logo will be an airplane with two champagne glasses as wings. (While I’m adding this to my vision board head over to see how I made these chic benches with my @kregjig for my shed!) .

I have this weird job where I talk to my friends every day but I only see them in person once or twice a year. And lemme tell you... when we’re in the same room with each other, we don’t mess around. You could walk by us carrying a parrot and wearing a unicorn suit and we probably wouldn’t even see you. There’s so much laughing and talking and hugging and then... quick, we take a picture. And then we laugh and talk and hug and selfie some more. These are the smartest, most well rounded, savvy ladies I know. There’s a never ending willingness to lift each other up and share information and brainstorm. To be able to do all of this in person with a glass of Prosecco for THREE straight days? Let’s just say my love tank is full. (I also feel like I should mention that if you DO happen to have a parrot and a unicorn suit, there’s a strong possibility that we will see you and get you on our IG stories so consider yourself warned.)

Good morning from Charleston!!! I’m over the dang moon to be with my favorite people at the @havenconf... all caffeinated up... my hair’s done... I had like 5 pieces of bacon for breakfast... and now I’m going to learn how be rich and famous online!! Oh... did I mention our keynote speakers are from Bachelor Nation?! Life is good. Reality TV and blogging.

I don’t normally post food on here because a bag of Baked Cheetos wouldn’t necessarily fit the vibe I’m going for. But I’m in the airport, it’s mega early, and these donuts are colorful and sprinkly and signify that I’m headed for the @havenconf ! Arrived at the airport around 6. Introduced the friendly gal at TSA to my underwire, confirmed in the fluorescent lights of the restroom that I did in fact get 2 hours of sleep last night, and have also learned that the Dunkin Donuts wake-up wrap needs to be about 4x bigger than it is. Tried to talk my way into the Admirals Lounge to no avail so here I sit happily people watching and listening to the lady behind me recount the wrong turn she took pulling into the airport. (“It took me back out and all the way around the airport!”) I get in this afternoon and will have time to explore the city so give me your favorite spots/ things to do in Charleston! (I already have a Southern Charm walking tour cued up, but looking for some other options...) Have a great day, everyone! #havenshere #traveldays #donut🍩 #yumyum

Y’all. Forever forward my life will be thought of as BL and AL... before lice and after lice. ‘Now this is a story all about how my life got flipped-turned upside down and I'd like to take a minute just sit right there’... I’ll tell you how I combed through five heads of hair. Here’s the good news... only one child had a solid dance party going on in her hair, two dodged it entirely and the other two only had a few slow dancers so I’m feeling better about our future. We have about 10 days to wait and comb and then comb some more before we can declare victory. ‘I looked at my kingdom, I was finally there’... to sit on my couch with tea tree oiled hair. Good times, ladies and gentlemen... good times. .

By now many of you know that Smith family is on the move. Until we know where we’re headed next, it’s hard not to feel more sad than excited but lazy summer days and a house full of laughing kids is a pretty good antidote. I’ve also discovered a handful of other guilty pleasures that can sometimes cheer me up ever so slightly. (Baked Cheetos, pedicures, junky TV, Girl Scout cookies I have hidden from the kids...) I’m no self care expert but sometimes we all need to reach for something silly that brings a smile to our face... if only for a moment. What’s that one thing YOU hate to love?? .

Know what slackers do? They post one picture that counts for two things and hashtags the heck out of it! Yep... this picture is not only #WeekendWarrior but it’s also #SundaySiesta. Boom. But wait... you say. Those two things are kind of the opposite. How can you do that? Because, folks... Instagram’s like the wild wild west and there’s a new sheriff in town. This is our yard and those are my children and last night we had a little adult get together. Which meant all day yesterday was running around getting the place ready and prepping for a party. But TODAY, that also means we got to chill on the very same patio and enjoy some perfect Sunday weather. So there you have it. A real hashtag rebel. Don’t try this at home, kids. Also, hope you had a great weekend and follow #HavensHere to see how everyone else kicked back today! Table accessories courtesy of @christmastreeshops .

One thing I’ll say for summer... a little extra time in bed isn’t off the table. I mean... it’s only 7:30 and five feral humans are running around so a lazy morning is never totally *on* the table but a few extra minutes ain’t bad. Today for the #HavensHere photo challenge we’re sharing bedrooms and this is my Taylor Swift shot because... Look what you made me do! That bench is your fault, Instagram friends so don’t think I’ll forget you goaded me into buying it. (Thanks, btw.) three kids’ spider senses have alerted them that I’m awake so they’re now all in bed with me which means... time to get up! Follow the hashtag to see lots of other bedroom inspo!

Design secret... a good vignette can forgive all sorts of cleaning sins. Sock on the floor? Crop it out- vignette. Fingerprints on the wall. Zoom in- vignette. Cheetoh dust on the furniture... well, just throw a pillow on top and take the picture. But Cheetoh dust on the counter... THAT you can edit around- vignette. I’m sure these glass shelves are meant to display cocktail glasses but that’s boring. So I rounded up as many colored glasses as I could, and then (don’t tell) I just painted the rest with glass paint. I guess what I’m saying, is to be a successful blogger you need to be a liar and a faker. You heard it here first, folks. #HavensHere @havenconf

Happy 4th of July! We’re taking a quick break from the festivities to cool off and scrub popsicles off the kids’ faces, and then back out tonight for a BBQ with friends. Mark and I are having a silent stand-off about who should go to the grocery store so lunch might be canned beans and tuna fish (the lunch of our forefathers). We’ve already been in the holiday bike parade from the center of town to the local library: think bumper cars with scooters and tricycles. Turns out weeds really like neglect and heat so I need to spend some time patriotic weeding after lunch, and that’s about it for the day! Sharing our dining room as part of the @havenconf photo of the day challenge... today is Red, White and Blue so follow #HavensHere to see everyone else’s!
