I was a reading fiend these past couple months… here are a few that were on the list! If I Stay. By Gayle Forman I liked this book, but didn’t love it. Given the fact that there’s a movie based on the book and an awful lot of hype… I just expected a littleContinue reading “Current Reads.”
Oh Lawdy – it’s been a bit. With that said, here’s a shot at what my life looks like, currently:
Things have been changing in casa de Stecker and we’ve been busy bees the past couple months.
So, I thought, instead of keeping all this business to myself, I’d rather make myself a cup of tea (you should make yourself one too), curl up on the couch with a blanket (because it actually snowed – A LOT – here this week) and have a little girl to girl chat.
I’ve had it on my mind to write an update on this whole PCOS thing for months now. Each time I sit down to write about where I’m at, what I’m feeling, what I know and where I’m going… I just clam up.

Instead, I open several of them in different tabs, read through the words, make minor changes, hit “save draft” and exit out of the screen. Feeling no more accomplished than I did when I first logged in.

I love all the tea time, coffee break and catch-up posts floating around… and I’m a big-time lover of lists, so merge the two and I’ve got myself a perfect blog post! Bam! So, instead of a Finally Friday post, let’s catch up… [Getting in some after work baby snuggles last night] My SistersContinue reading “Let’s Chat.”
