About Me


I blog about nothing and everything, so you will love it here if you like any of the following:

subpar writing, John Hughes, living with anxiety, caffeine addiction, Gilmore Girls, girly hormonal shit, music, the 80’s, part of the 70’s, some of the 90’s, swear words, carbs, Amazon Prime, the greater Chicago area, sarcasm, garage sales, Goodwill, being a mom, living your best Oprah life but on a budget and without Dr. Phil or Iyanla


I’m a joy to be around January through April.


Frequently Asked Questions


How did you come up with the name of your blog? 

My blog is a love letter to my two daughters and the Grace in A Grace Full Life is both of their middle names.

Haven’t you been blogging for, like, ever? 

I have! I’ve been writing non-stop since June of 2010. That, in the blog world, is for, like, ever.

Why are you so obsessed with John Hughes? 

John Hughes is a huge part of my teen years and as I age, I want to hold on to those memories. Writing about him, his movies and his upcoming museum is my happy place. When I write about it, I am still young, skinny, have Sun-In highlights, blue mascara, and really tight acid wash jeans.

How do you have 9000 followers on Pinterest? 

Your guess is as good as mine. Probably 4,000 are from the master bath post alone. Also, I am noticing lots of spam accounts or bots (as in robots) following me and many others on there. So probably another 3,000 of those accounts. Which leaves me with only 2,000, which is more my level of follower ratio.

Do you ever think of giving up writing?

Writing? Never. Blogging? Weekly. I love to write but blogging is becoming more about making money than the art of writing, not that there is anything wrong with that either. But I think about giving up blogging weekly.  I will never, however, give up writing.

How do I start a blog? 

I have written about it before in this blog post. If you want a blog just for the sole purpose of writing, I can help you. If you want a blog for the sole purpose of making money, I can’t but there are many tutorials on Pinterest that can.

I bet you are really creative! 

I bet you’ve never read my blog.

Do you ever get annoyed with other bloggers? 

Holy balls yes. I am lucky that I have an amazing core of blogging friends who are so funny, make me smile, and help me thrive. But there are some icky bloggers out there who take it way too seriously to the point of cutting others down and sabotaging them (hence the bad reputation bloggers get). I once got my head bitten off because I answered a question wrong in a blogging forum.  SORRY BECKI (not her name) I DIDN’T ANSWER HOW TO GAIN MORE PINTEREST FOLLOWERS ON YOUR MONTHLY BULLSHIT POSTS. I WILL TRY HARDER NEXT TIME.

Ooopsies, did I say that out loud?


I like to caption screenshots of favorite old television shows in my spare time.
