FAT CHANCE, CHARLIE VEGA Coming Soon to a Bookstore Near You

I’ve had two dreams since I was a kid. Fall in love with a funny, hot guy. Become a published author. I got to check number one off my list a long time ago, lucky to have fallen in love with my person at just 18 years old. And now I can cross number twoContinue reading “FAT CHANCE, CHARLIE VEGA Coming Soon to a Bookstore Near You”

Goin’ Back to Cali, Cali, Cali

My parents, my grandma, and I have officially mastered the four-day, cross-country vacation. This happened the first time in March 2017 and did a repeat this month — likely my final trip before baby arrives — and I couldn’t have asked for a better visit! In truth, it will likely be a while before IContinue reading “Goin’ Back to Cali, Cali, Cali”

Being Fat and Pregnant

I’ve spent a lifetime hating my body. I was a fat kid who turned into a fat teen who became a fat adult and I live in the U.S., where we are actively taught that being fat is not just unattractive, but unhealthy, worthy of ridicule, deserving of discrimination (even by medical professionals), and something youContinue reading “Being Fat and Pregnant”

Getting Ready for Two Babies: A Girl and a Book!

What’s better than one baby? Two! First: a beautiful, wiggly, growing baby girl that Bill and I are so excited to welcome into our lives. My due date is June 19, 2019, meaning there’s just 99 days until we say hello to her. It’s been so much fun preparing for her arrival. Oddly, Bill andContinue reading “Getting Ready for Two Babies: A Girl and a Book!”

Things I Wore (and Did) in January 2019

Some months you only manage to snag two outfit photos because your body is changing and expanding and you don’t feel really comfortable in it yet so that’s that. I may only be five months along, but it became official in January that I needed to switch out of my normal wardrobe and switch toContinue reading “Things I Wore (and Did) in January 2019”

Let’s Do This, 2019

2018 was good to me. It is weird to feel like you’re thriving personally while the world is sort of crashing around you. I’m not immune to the terrible things that happen — but in my personal life, I’m happy and things are actually going well. Last year, I vowed to live 2018 with lessContinue reading “Let’s Do This, 2019”

Spooky (Not-So) Scary Halloween at Disney World

Disney is definitely one of my favorite vacation spots. It reminds me of my childhood and it’s just so magical and light and fun. So, for Bill’s 30th, we thought there was no better place to celebrate than in the Happiest Place on Earth! Day 1 – Disney Springs For the first time ever, BillContinue reading “Spooky (Not-So) Scary Halloween at Disney World”

Things I Wore (and Did) in October 2018

To say that October was kind of the best month would be an understatement — like, so many good things happened I don’t even know where to begin. Celebrated Bill’s 30th birthday! Saw Hamilton in Boston! Took an incredible, Halloween-themed trip to Disney (full post to come)! Got great news (which I can share soon)!Continue reading “Things I Wore (and Did) in October 2018”

Things I Wore (and Did) in September 2018

Work has been intense. September was my first month where the semester was in session and I was in my new role managing all of the social channels for the institution where I work. One week, I put in so many extra hours that I worked three full extra days. It’s been a lot, butContinue reading “Things I Wore (and Did) in September 2018”
