Alright. I’m going to be totally honest. Sometimes I think about getting plastic surgery. Have you ever thought about that? I think you’d be hard pressed to find a woman who hasn’t thought about it at least once in their lives. I don’t think I would ever actually HAVE plastic surgery, but that doesn’t mean […]

Good morning to everyone! It’s time to get that stuff off your chest in another edition of True Confessions Tuesday! So go ahead, vent away! I have had a particularly yucky week food-wise, so I’ll just cut to the chase. Pizza Chick-Fil-A Pizza Burger King (because we were sick of McDonalds. I know.) The husband […]

Today is Lisa’s birthday!!! Not only is Lisa a wonderfully amazing contributor here at the Sisterhood, but she is also my best friend. For the past 6 years, we’ve been through some amazing milestones together, including weight loss, pregnancies, new babies, more weight loss, and now 1/2 marathon training.
