Happy Monday, friends!
Are we still talking about New Year’s Resolutions at this point in the year, or did they all fade into oblivion?
I’m asking because one of my commitments in 2022 was to tighten up unnecessary spending. Starbucks (sigh), convenience foods, and even regular mani/pedi sessions got cancelled, y’all, and I was quite the little saver.
But I’m beyond over doing my own nails. I have absolutely zero talent with that dang nail brush. It’s so bad that my 4-year-old – who is the girliest, frilliest person I know – would rather have bare nails than ones painted by me. Her mommy. The very love of her little life.

‘Cause ya girl is struggling, y’all.
Have a wonderful week!
