I have a terrible confession to make: for all of my harping on over the years about how fad foods make me angry, I’ve succumbed to probably the worst fad of all – a fad diet. That’s right folks, I’ve gone ahead and started up one of those lame shake diets where you replace food with something that is essentially flavoured baby formula. Yum.
It’s officially been one year since my husband inexplicably quit his job and I found myself using the skills I’ve picked up blogging over the years to put food on the table. I went from blogger, to freelance writer, to casual all-rounder to where I am right now – a full-time permanent Digital Communications Officer who relies heavily on her background in Web design and a love of social media to get shit done.

I’ve been mostly managing to keep my cool (except for a few moments of weakness on Twitter) but once the amazing badge art I commissioned from the immensely talented SaraKatch landed in my messages folder, I was done.

Between me juggling this whole ‘working parent’ thing and my husband still learning the ropes of being a stay-at-home, getting kids dressed in the morning is like some really lame version of Where’s Waldo, where instead of scanning colourful art you’re digging through mount washing.
Have you ever noticed that it always seems to be the same culprits who go missing? Below are the three items of clothing we’re most likely to lose:
I dunno about you guys, but my 2016 has been weird. Plenty of good things have happened, but so too have plenty of not-so-good things. Here is a quick summary of my 2016 so far, listed in no particular order:
A few days before my husband inexplicably quit his job, I had placed an order with the Blizzard Gear store. My ‘mission’ was to get my son the Starcraft Void Probe plush he wanted for his birthday, but I couldn’t resist adding a few extras to the shopping cart. Our little bundle of goodness arrived today, and included in it was this Heroes of the Storm Hacci Top by We Love Fine:
