Why I can totally relate to everyone hanging out without me

adminBlog Comments

Let me just get straight to the point. I love Mindy Kaling. Like absolutely freakin’ adore her…her wit, humor and caramel princess charm (you have to watch The Mindy Project to get that last one). And I’ve been having Mindy Project withdrawals since Fox took the show off the air. My only option now is Hulu, but my savvy rural Internet speeds don’t play nicely with streaming services like Hulu, so that’s a no go. My solution. Unfollow every Mindy Project social channel that exists. Stop having recap texts with my fellow Mindy-loving friends. And wait. Wait patiently for Season 3 to hit Amazon long after Season 3 actually concludes. Buy it, put the kids to bed early, and watch my Mindy marathon…next summer. If you haven’t already gotten on the Mindy Project bandwagon, you need to. But you first need to read her book, appropriately titled Is Everyone Hanging … Read More

Letting go

Letting go | Lazy K Creative blog

Today I’m talking about motherhood. Because it is so rewarding and so gut-wrenching all at the same time. My daughter started Pre-K last week, and handled it like a champ, as expected. I was fine too, for the most part. I was happy there were no tears. Happy for her to have this experience. Excited for this next step for her. And a little sad. Sad for me mainly. Because even though my two kids are still really little, I’m already starting to get a real glimpse into what is to come. Letting go. She’s only four, and I am already starting to have to let her go. Kinda sucks. I thought I had at least 10 years before I had to worry myself with this. But for the first time in her little life, she didn’t seem so little. She didn’t seem so needy. And she just seemed ready. … Read More

The year of me

adminBlog Comments

I’ve made myself a promise. I’m devoting the next 12 months to me. That doesn’t mean I’m moving across the country and leaving my kids with their Daddy. Gosh no. I love them too much. It means that I’m focusing on my health – physical, mental, emotional – and my soul. After a tough couple of years and the addition of my second child, I decided it was now or never. Here’s some things I’m planning. I figure if I write them down, I’m more likely to stick with them: Make time to exercise 3-4 times/week (no excuses!) Go on more date nights and weekend getaways (sans kids) with the hubs (our last big trip together was in 2010 before I got pregnant with Kassidy) Get back into a routine of physical care (eye doc, dentist, chiropractor and dermatologist) Make time to be creative for myself (create art for the … Read More

Spring Break 2014 Bucket List: A Recap

Lazy K Creative Blog | Spring Break 2014 Bucket List: A Recap

As many of you know, I felt challenged to find something fun and unique for my family to experience together each day of Spring Break this year. For the first time EVER, I didn’t have to work the entire week, so I thought we might as well do stuff together as a family since we weren’t quite sick of each other yet. The challenge. It had to be close to home (within 60 miles or so), cheap, and something we hadn’t done before. Monday I really have to give my husband credit for the quest. Monday started out like any other Monday. We had plans to work all day, moving dirt and trying to get our yard ready to lay sod by the end of the week. Honestly, I didn’t have anything fun planned. But at 4 o’clock, and after putting in a long day’s work, Brady asked me and … Read More

A few of my favorite things

adminBlog Comments

This post is long overdue. Long overdue. I always feel like I’m the last person to discover something. I mean, I’ve never said that I was cool. But lately, I’ve felt that coolness factor increase just a bit. Because, well, because as I begin to share all these cool finds with my new and old friends alike, I’ve come to discover that the majority of the time, they have never heard of it, until – wait for it – me! So, yeah, now I feel just a little bit cooler. And I want you to feel cool too. So check out some of my awesome finds. If you already know about them, then we are both equally cool. If you don’t, then you’re welcome. And please share with your friends so that they can be cool like us. And if you know of something awesome that I didn’t include, please … Read More

Crossing off my list

adminBlog Comments

Tomorrow is the big day. I turn 30. I really don’t feel old either. Just a little flabby. This baby weight can not come off fast enough. Which is why you get to look at an adorable picture of Kassidy instead of an adorable picture of me. I’m not really liking the camera right now. And since it’s my blog, I don’t have to post a picture of myself. It’s awesome being in charge. And I really don’t have too much to say about turning 30. I feel like I’ve done a lot in the last 30 years, and I’m kinda excited to see what is in store for the Kujawski family. But I can tell you that of all the items I’ve crossed off my list, I’m most happy about crossing off number four. I know it’s cheesy people, and I know that I’m not normally cheesy, but becoming … Read More

30 Things To Do Before I’m 30

adminBlog Comments

On February 13, my sweet little Auder reminded me that it was my half birthday. What does that mean? That means that in less than six short months, I’ll be turning the big 3-0. And it reminded me of the list I created 5 years ago. A list that contained 30 things I hoped to accomplish before I left my 20s behind forever. I’d be lying if I told you that I completed everything on my list. I didn’t. I didn’t plan on it. But it’s nice to know that I made a good dent in it — 11 crossed off so far. And it’s nice to think that I still have plenty of time to enjoy crossing the other 19 off. Before I turn 35. Hmmm…maybe I’ll add 5 more goals to that list just because I can? My Top 30 Things To Do Before I’m 30 Get married … Read More
