Sooooo… I quit my job!

OMGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG!!!

OK, sorry for being a little dramatic but I have been keeping this HUGE secret for around a month now and am SO excited to finally tell you what I’ve been hinting about for a while!

I QUIT MY JOB! Friday was my last day at my “grown-up” corporate job, and your girl is UNEMPLOYED (in the traditional sense, that is).  **insert all the crazy eye emojis in the world here**

Don't quit your day job

I really don’t even know where to start with this post because my mind is racing in 1,000 different directions.  I decided to try to think of all the questions I would personally want to ask a friend who up and quit their career after a decade of doing the same-ish thing and being pretty successful at it.

Review: The Plus Size Sports Bra That is Changing The Game!

Disclosure:  This is a sponsored post in partnership with GlamoriseSport.  All opinions are my own.  I only share products I personally use and love.  

I’ve got a secret…..

For years, I’ve been a double bra wearer.  That’s right…. when I exercise, I wear a sports bra with a regular underwire bra underneath.

I’m not particularly busty, but I still prefer additional support that most sports bras just don’t provide.  Regular sports bras typically either smash my “girls” flat or don’t provide enough support to control the bounce when I work out.

I’ve always HATED that when I use my “double bra method” you can see both sets of straps under tank tops.  I’ve also hated getting my favorite bras sweaty and gross requiring me to wash them after each wear, causing them to wear out quickly.

Our Dream Wedding in Lexington, KY

Today, Kevin and I celebrate our two year wedding anniversary!  I’ll be totally cliche’ and say that time really does fly when you’re having fun.  I can’t believe it’s been two years since our special day.

Planning a wedding can be intense and stressful for anyone, but there is extra stress for plus size brides-to-be.  I am a classic Type-A personality and am an over the top perfectionist.  I also tend to get stressed out easily.  Given all of this, I would have expected to be a total basket case when it came to planning my wedding but I managed to keep it all together and had a super relaxed day.

In honor of our anniversary, I thought it would be fun to share some info about our big day.

Ask Me Anything – How to Become More Confident

One of the main reasons I decided to start this blog was to create a space for discussing all the things that are important to plus size women.  While I think I have a good grasp on a lot of issues we face, I know that there are plenty of topics that you want to to discuss or questions you may have.  That’s why I plan to share regular posts featuring your questions and my thoughts on the topics that matter most to you.
