The Best Coffee Mugs on Etsy

Etsy coffee mugs
As I was looking through mugs on Etsy to send Kerri as a part of Kallie's mug swap, I came across some of the most amazing AFFORDABLE mugs. I seriously wanted to buy them all. However, I know that if I did that my husband might be slightly upset considering we have an entire cabinet AND coffee station full of mugs. Oops. Since I can't buy all the mugs, I figured a round-up of my favorites was basically the next best thing. No? You can thank me later.

How to NOT Be a Bridezilla

Hello everyone! I don't know if we've met...I'm Christine from The So-Called Homemaker! I'm so excited that Cassie is letting me take over her blog today, because I get to talk about something that I really don't talk about often...wedding stuff! You see, I was married for two years before I started my blog, so I never got to do "Wedding Wednesday" or post about all my wedding details. While I have talked about my wedding once on my blog, I'm excited to share some of my best tips - for NOT being a bridezilla!
  How not to be a Bridezilla

Keep it small. While you may be tempted to invite everyone, their brother, and their brother's neighbors, to your wedding, just don't. The more people you invite, the less time you have to spend with each of them and the less memories you'll get to create. Obviously, a smaller wedding is generally cheaper as well. PS: If you invite too many people, you'll spend so much time talking to them all that you won't get to eat. Which would be awful. 

Take a deep breath. Although the accepted maxim in today's society is that your wedding is the "most important day in your life," it really ISN'T. You will (hopefully, if you don't act like a bridezilla) live long enough to have many other days which are just as important to you. While it is an important day, it is not the end-all-be-all for your life, so don't treat it like it is.


How not to be a Bridezilla

Change your idea of perfect. When we grow up, we all picture the "perfect" wedding day in our minds, and let me tell you, if you're expecting your wedding to be like that, prepare to be disappointed. Things will go wrong. Things will break. Things will be lost. If you get stuck on everything that is going wrong, you will lose focus on everything that is going right...and as Carrie said to Charlotte, you'll miss it!

It's not all about you. Despite everything that you've grown up hearing and everything that people may say to you, your wedding is not YOUR day. Your wedding is, at the very least, about two people - yourself and your fiance. Include him in the planning, and let him have a silly cake if he wants it. Let him dance as oddly as he wants to, and don't make him wear a tux if he doesn't want to. Remember, after the wedding the two of you have to live together so he is the last person you want to alienate!


How not to be a Bridezilla
Yes, that is a picture of my groom's cake...it was a fish, and YES we picked it out to be red velvet on in the inside to look like blood. And you know what? It was a hit and everyone loved it, including me! Have fun! This one is obvious...just have fun! Stop trying to make it be something that you imagined and just let it be what it is!

Are you getting married soon? What kind of things are you doing to keep from being a bridezilla? If you're already married, what other tips would you give to brides?

Sharing Pregnancy on the Internet + Meet Amanda

Sharing pregnancy on the internet

Consider this your warning... this post is mostly a disorganized mess of all of my complicated thoughts regarding sharing pregnancies on the internet and social media. You can also consider this a disclaimer. These thoughts are my own and what might be best for me might not be best for you- that is to be expected. Since my thoughts are so complicated, I would love for you to share yours in the comments, especially if you're a mom because I obviously am not at that place in my life, and my opinion is subject to change when/if we get there.

Now that we have that out of the way, let me get to the good stuff. I do not think I will share my pregnancy online. At least not on my blog. But as I said above, that is subject to change. There are many reasons for this.

The first reason is privacy. Although I am a blogger and choose to put my life out there on the internet, I do still have boundaries and I am actually a pretty private person. I don't plan to ever write a "mommy blog" so it shouldn't be terribly hard to write about other things, or at least when I do write about motherhood or share on social media, to keep my children's faces and information private.

The next issue concerns safety and security. Similar to Meagan's thoughts on the issue, I worry about photos of my (future) children getting into the wrong hands. There are people on instagram who steal photos of other people's children and share them as their own (and sometimes do worse things with them). Predators also use the internet. Just because blogging is my hobby, that doesn't mean it will be in my children's best interest to be on here. I also work in the mental health field, and clients don't need to see my kids. Although I won't be able to resist sharing on social media, I can resist sharing their faces.

My third reason is kind of silly, but I think it's weird that women share ultrasound photos on the internet. When you think about it, I know pregnancy is beautiful and all, but you are putting your unborn child and uterus out there for everyone to see. This is a SUPER intimate thing I only want to share with my husband, close family and friends. Also, it's kind of weird that everyone has seen a 3D photo of your child before it is even born. Am I alone here?

Fourth, I can't help but feel for all the women who are single, struggling with infertility, or coping with the loss of babies. Now, I know that shouldn't prevent someone from sharing in their excitement, but I think it should be at least thoughtfully acknowledged.

Because there are two sides to every issue, and as I have said my thoughts are complicated, I do go back and forth on this issue. Mostly because when the time comes for us to have children, I know I will be really excited and want to share with my blogger friends. I also know, however, that I can still share with those bloggers I know well via e-mail, etc.

I know there are plenty of people who choose to share their pregnancies and children online and I am not judging them for that.We each have our own ways of doing things, and this will likely be mine.

I also recognize it might be weird to all of a sudden have a child, but that is something I am willing to deal with as it comes. It's likely my pregnancy won't stay a total secret, but it probably won't be on my blog. I know this seems extreme, but the safety and security of my family is important to me. And all of this being said, I AM NOT PREGNANT. Promise.

Did/will you share your pregnancy online? How do/will you deal with issues such as safety and security when it comes to your children?

Today the lovely Amanda from Knock on Wood is joining us! Amanda is a fellow Missourian who actually only lives an hour or so away from me! I'm excited for the day we actually get to meet because this lady has a huge heart and the cutest dog in the world that I might dog-nap. Shhhh. Take it away Amanda!
Hello Sage readers! I'm Amanda and I blog over at Knock on Wood. You can find anything from love and relationship topics to recipes and life tips there, and if I haven't blogged about it and you want to read about it, let me know and I'll get right on that. I'm pretty sure the posts about my furkids and my crazy conversations with Hubs (and other people) are everyone's favorites. I'm kicking Cassie out for a moment because she wants me to answer these very important questions. So here it goes.

1. What are you passionate about? 
Helping people. This is why my job is so perfect for me; I'm a Certified Medical Assistant (CMA) at a local long term assisted living facility for senior citizens. My residents have awesome stories to tell and can offer some great life advice. Just because they are "old" doesn't mean they don't have their wits about them. This is also why I chose Psychology as my major when I decided to go back to school. Since starting my job, I think I want to work with seniors as well as offer marriage and relationship counseling.

2. If you could travel to one place in the entire world, where would it be and why? 
England. I went there once in 2008 and I fell in love. There is so much history and amazing architecture, and so many things I wasn't able to see and experience. I think I need an entire year there to explore everything to my satisfaction.

3. If you could learn to do anything, what would it be and why? 
To communicate with my furkids. Seriously, sometimes I really really want to know what they are thinking or needing. When Bear was sick last week, I would have given anything to know for sure what was making him feel yucky! And my cats are always meowing about something.



4. Would you like to know the day you’re going to die ahead of time? Why or why not?
Oh, this is a hard one. On one hand I would, so I can make sure I get in everything I absolutely want to do. But on the other, I don't. I wouldn't want that looming over me and my family every single day. You know, let's go with no. We should live every day like it could be our last. Each one we get is such a blessing.

5. What’s something you wish everyone knew about you?
That I can be honest to a fault, and sometimes I say things harshly/frankly without realizing I am. Most of the time I am only trying to help, but it can come off as something entirely different. I am working on this, so if you experience something like this, please please let me know, so I can explain further what I was trying to say and so that it is brought to my attention. That way I'll be able to catch myself before I say something like that again. My Husband does this with me, and it's helped us understand each other so much better.

Using Sponsorships to Grow Community

Using sponsorships to grow community

Blog sponsorships are kind of a strange thing, aren't they? We are paying other people to promote us and share our content. Recently, Jenny wrote a post called the "the blogging break-up" that really got me thinking. Essentially, she challenges bloggers who pretend to be in authentic community with their sponsors, and then just abruptly stop reading their content- even if they promoted it like it was the bee's knees for the last 30 days.

I have worked VERY hard to make sure this wasn't the case with those people who sponsor me, but I know I have failed at times. It's hard to maintain a relationship with previous sponsors, especially as the work load increases. That being said, I really do believe that we as bloggers can use sponsorships to grow authentic community. In order to do so, I think we need to work on some things.

1. Only accept sponsors whose content you believe in. If you don't enjoy someone's content, or it doesn't fit your niche, I would encourage you not to approve that person's ad. If you don't believe in something, your promotion of it will not be authentic. I know this can seem cruel, but in the end it's better for both of you. This also makes it easier to be in community with those sponsors you do accept, because you know you're likely to have something in common.

2. Invest in that person. Actually READ your sponsor's content and take the time to leave a quality comment. That person should feel like they are a part of your community when you take them on as a sponsor. If you're having a hard time investing in someone, you might want to go back to #1.

3. Get to know them. Every now and then a blogger I don't know very well will apply to sponsor me. After deciding their content would be a good fit for my blog, I spend some time reading their blog and getting to know them. Throughout an ads run time, I check in periodically with e-mails, engage them on Twitter, and mention them in things like #widn on instagram. This allows me to interact with them like I would any other person in the blogosphere, and usually it means I walk away with a new friend.

4. Don't cease to communicate with them once their ad expires. The majority of the people that have sponsored me have come back again and again. Believe it or not, it's not because I'm a tweet master but because now they are more then just sponsors, they are my friends! You can't expect to be best friends with everyone who sponsors you, but you can at least build some sort of relationship that continues beyond 30 days.

5. BE AUTHENTIC. It's great if you offer social media shout-outs to your sponsors, however, if you don't LOVE a sponsor's post or it doesn't fit well with your beliefs, share something different (hopefully this is kept to a minimum if you're following #1)! You need to tailor the content you share to your niche. Otherwise, your shout-out will go unnoticed, and your sponsor will not reap the benefits.

6. Take a honest look at your motivations. Do you offer sponsorships just to make some extra income? There's nothing wrong with that, but you'll have a hard time with all of the above and your sponsorship program might not be very successful in the end (especially if you're a smaller blogger). If community is more important to you then the money, take an honest look at your motivations and make changes accordingly.

7. Don't be scared to make changes. If one of your sponsorship options is making it difficult to grow in authentic community with your sponsors, don't be scared to ditch it. For example, I will never offer the option for people to pay me to pin their content because I only pin content I believe in and fully endorse myself. THIS builds authentic community.

8. Hold up your end of the deal. Keep your word. Produce quality content consistently. If something comes up that makes this a challenge be real with your sponsors and ask how you can make it up to them- just like a friend would.

The moral of the story is: VALUE your sponsors and give them the authentic community they deserve for believing in you and investing in your blog.

Are you really investing in your sponsors? Is monetizing more important to you than building community? Would you add anything to this list?

XO Vox Box

Influenster XO Vox BoxInfluenster XO Vox Box
It's always a happy day when you find out that you have been selected to receive a Influenster box. A few weeks ago, I found out I would be receiving the XO Vox Box at my door step. When it finally arrived, I was so excited to see what was inside. I'm not going to lie, this box was a bit of a let-down compared to some of the others I have seen, but overall there were some great products I am happy to have come across. Here's the deets on what was in my box (sorry for the crappy quality):

Influenster XO Vox Box

Pictured:

1. Tide Pods with Febreze. OH MY LANTA these are easy breezy. Get it? Febreze. But all jokes aside, I love how easy it is to just toss these in the washer and be done with it. They left my sheets smelling amazing. However, I usually don't buy things like this just because of the price point (we're cheap). That being said, I might consider it in the future (maybe when I'm done with graduate school and have a big girl job).

2. Colgate Optic White Toothpaste and Brush + Whitener. This is slightly embarassing but I have some yellow teeth. It's partly genetic and partly due to my coffee habit. I have actually tried the Optic White toothpaste in the past and didn't have great results. BUT, I usually don't have great results no matter what I use. I have been using the built-in whitener the last few days and although I haven't noticed a drastic change, I do like the applicator and texture of the whitener. Usually, whiteners taste AWFUL and are unbearable to have in your mouth, but this one you just apply and let dissolve and it doesn't even have a taste. Just for that, it's a winner in my book.

3. John Frieda Luxurious Volume 7 Day Treatment + Beach Blonde Collection. Confession: I haven't actually tried these products yet. I usually save travel sized shampoos for the gym, so I will be trying them out this morning. If you're dying to know, leave a comment and I'll let you know what I thought (bad blogger). 

4. Skinfix Hand Repair Cream. MIRACLE CREAM. But seriously. I am an alligator in the Midwest and my hands are constantly cracking and peeling. This hand cream is a GOD SEND. Do yourself a favor and go buy some now.

Not pictured

5. Adore Me Lingerie. This is where things get weird. I was told my "XO" Vox Box would include lingerie but come to find out you have to sign up for a VIP membership (a monthly subscription) to get it. I'm totally the worst at signing up for things and forgetting to cancel them before my "free" trial runs out, so I admittedly didn't even try to get my "free" lingerie. Sorry y'all.

6. Land's End Promo. A similar case here. I got a spend $100 save $25 gift card. No thanks. BUT, I used to think Land's End were grandma clothes until I started creeping them on Pinterest and they actually have some REALLY nice J-Crew like clothing! I was pleasantly surprised.

Have you tried any of these products or would you consider trying any of them?

Our 2015 Garden + Meet Kristyn


When we first moved into our house, I couldn't wait to start a garden. Last year, we had some successes and failures with our new garden, but overall it was a great experience and I cannot wait to get started again this year. I'm also lucky I have a husband with a green thumb because I can kill even the easiest of plants.

Last year we planted zucchini, brussel sprouts, spinach, various herbs, tomatoes, peppers, and broccoli. The zucchini, spinach, herbs, and tomatoes did AWESOME. We had more than we knew what to do with and I still have some frozen zucchini and tomatoes in our fridge. The brussels, peppers, and broccoli did not do as well, sadly.

This year, we have planned our garden carefully and have a more clear idea of what will work and what will not. We have also decided to grow the herbs in pots in order to maximize the small area we have available. Here's what we are planting (don't hate on my super savvy collage):

garden plants


We plan to start preparing our soil in the next few weeks. We have a huge amount of compost ready to be added to the garden and then we will be able to start planting! Also, this year we will be getting chickens which means FRESH EGGS. I could not be more excited.

Also, a huge thanks goes out to Anne from Love the Here and Now for inspiring this post with her blogging prompts for the uninspired (aka ME).

Do you have a garden? What are you planting?

I really love Wednesdays because I get to share my awesome sponsors with you all. Kristyn from Chits and Giggles is truly a gem. She is so gifted in the blogging arena and I have really loved being able to bounce ideas off of her as I have worked on growing my own blog. She also did an AWESOME blog consultation for me that was incredibly helpful- I would highly recommend her! Also- a fun fact: we were married on the same day! But you have heard enough from me today, so take it away Kristyn!  

Hello everyone! I am Kristyn, the author of Chits & Giggles. I strive to bring humor along with real life events and a few personal trials to Chits and Giggles. The name might sound like all fun and games, but I do touch on serious subjects as well. I write about blog tips, my crappy skin, wedding planning advice, and life as it happens.

1. What are you passionate about?
If I had to sum this up, I am passionate about life. I try to live life to the fullest each and every day and I want to be proud of how I lived each day. I am a huge supporter of trying new things - like watercoloring - and stepping out of your comfort zone.

2. If you could travel to one place in the entire world, where would it be and why?
Oh goodness, this is hard. I want to travel to so many places, so it's hard to choose just one. But, if I had to go somewhere else, it would be some place in the mountains, I think. I would love to travel to the Swiss Alps one day and see those majestic mountains. By the way, mountains hold a very special place in my heart.

3. If you could learn to do anything, what would it be and why?
I would love to learn my camera well enough to start a business. I don't feel confident enough trying to do that now (I need to learn Photoshop to even think about that), but I would really love to take photos for other people. I love landscape photography. Capturing the essence of a specific place sounds like heaven to me.

4. Would you like to know the day you’re going to die ahead of time? Why or why not?
I don't think I would. I want to live life to the fullest every day, regardless of the outcome. I don't want to have that added pressure of knowing what will happen to me that night. I would it just rather happen and I can be content with my life, instead of wishing I had done things differently.

5. What’s something you wish everyone knew about you?
That I had a blog? I want people to know about it, but I am also terrified if they go and check it out. It's scary to be so open and vulnerable on the internet because any person can find you.

A Coffee Date with Tinker Coffee

Tinker Coffee

If we were on a coffee date, I would invite you over to our house- something that is a work in progress, but something that is ours. We would sit in my kitchen where I would make us some Tinker Coffee in my favorite french press. I'd let you pick your mug because we have quite the variety. Then, I would start out by bragging on Tinker a bit before diving into the heart-level stuff.

I would tell you about how I really love Tinker, an Indianapolis-based coffee roaster, because they have some of the best coffees from around the world. We would be drinking coffee from Mexico this time around. It has the perfect blend of deep chocolate notes balanced with bright hints of cherry and cedar. I think you would love it. It's smooth and flavorful. Don't ask for creamer though- I might be offended.

Tinker Coffee

After I act all pretentious about my coffee, I'd ask you how you are doing. How you are REALLY doing. None of that superficial, "I'm good but busy" stuff. I would ask how I might pray for you and we might even pray right then and there.

After that, I would tell you that this has been a dry season for me spiritually. When things get crazy with school, I try my hardest to keep boundaries, but it can be a challenge. I'd share what I'm really struggling with: forgiveness and prayer. I'd tell you I haven't read my bible consistently at all this last month, and I would tell you how guilty I feel about that.

I'd share about how graduate school can be really hard. It's such an awesome experience and most days I really love it, but it can be incredibly demanding. I am so lucky to be a part of my program, but like any job, it has hard days.

I would tell you about how I am trying to be more intentional with others around me. I can be shy and totally introverted, so going up to someone new at church and introducing myself is hard. It takes a lot out of me. I am really trying to become more comfortable in these types of situations. I would probably ask you how you deal with being missional and how your personality type helps or hurts that.

Maybe, if I'm really being honest, I would tell you that sometimes I think I put too many expectations on people. That I have ideas of how relationships will play out, and that I am often hurt when they don't go as planned. It's all a part of my idol: control.  

Most likely, I would tell you that all my friends are pregnant. I'd share how happy I am for them and how I am nowhere near ready for that time in my life. I would tell you that I worry about how friendships will change when they all welcome their little ones into the world and how I feel selfish for thinking that.

Before the end of our coffee date, I would ask you to pray for me because I know you gladly would. Even though I'm not a hugger, I might even give you a hug on your way out, because this level of vulnerability would warrant one.

Tinker Coffee

So, want to go on a real coffee date?

*I received this product from Tinker Coffee for free. However, all opinions are honest and my own.

My 2015 Word: An Update

forgiveness

At the beginning of the year, I wrote about my "word." My word for 2015 is "forgive." Before I chose this word, I spent a lot of time thinking about how to apply it. For me, the application of forgiveness looks like prayer, reading books, asking friends to keep me accountable, and being more vulnerable.

Now that we are three months into the new year, I figured it was about time for an update. I would be lying if I said that the application of this word has been easy. It hasn't. Sometimes I forget about it completely and other times I pray passionately about it.

In an effort to stay consistent and keep this a positive experience, I have made a list of the things I am doing well to apply my word and the things I might be able to do better.

 

How I am Applying FORGIVE so Far:  

 

1. I have the recording from the "Finding Freedom Through Forgiveness" class through the Influence Network that I plan to watch once life slows down a bit. I'm really looking forward to it.

2. I have been more honest and straightforward with our small group about my struggles with forgiveness, something that I didn't always talk about as much as I should have.

3. Prayer has been playing a large role in this journey. I know I cannot apply forgiveness on my own, and I pray that the Holy Spirit works in me to make it possible.

4. I have started making a list of the books related to forgiveness that I would like to read over the next year. Suggestions are welcome!

5. I'm working on staying more cognizant of when I have an unforgiving attitude or say unforgiving things. This one is a work in progress.

How I Can Do Better at Applying FORGIVE in the Future: 


1. I need to ask more people in my life to keep me accountable. I want to go outside my comfort zone and ask people to help me carry this burden so I don't have to do it alone. Thankfully, I know I have a community that will be glad to help.

2. More apologies need to be offered to those around me. I have been in contact with people from my past that hurt me, but I have not been able to come straight out and apologize yet. I really hope to do this more.

3. I would like to be better about writing my thoughts on forgiveness in my journal. I'm not always great at seeing God move in my life while it is happening. Usually, I realize His works in retrospect, and I know that journaling through this process will be an encouragement to me.

How are you living out your 2015 word? How can I encourage you?

4 Must-See Documentaries

must-see documentaries

If you follow me on Instagram, you know M and I attended the True/False film festival this last weekend. True/False is an annual documentary film fest that happens in our town. From Thursday to Sunday we welcome some of the top documentaries from around the world, buskers, the best parties, and some pretty entertaining people. The festival is a HUGE deal in our town. True/False isn't only about films, though. It's also about people, art, and culture. There's even a 5K and a parade! Trust me when I say the True/False experience will move you.

This was the second time we have attended the festival and it did not disappoint. We saw a ton of great documentaries, as well as some that weren't really for us. Whether you're into documentaries or not, these four films will surely be worth your time.

1. Meru. It's not atypical for a documentary to bring me to tears, but this one REALLY brought on the tears. It's easily one of the best films I have seen in the last 10 years. Meru is an inspiring story of friendship, sacrifice, hope, and obsession all in one. It documents the story of three world-class climbers as they attempt to be the firsts to summit the Shark’s Fin on Mount Meru in India. It takes two attempts, a few nearly fatal accidents, and an amazing partnership between these men to finally conquer Meru. You don't have to be a climber to appreciate the love, passion, and drive this film exudes. Lucky for you, the film will be coming to a theater near you in August of this year. You won't want to miss it, trust me.

(T)error documentary

2. (T)error. This film wasn't at all what I was expecting, but it was SO good. (T)error documents the journey of one FBI counter-terrorism informant, "Shariff." Shariff, a single dad and Black revolutionary, has worked for the FBI for more than 20 years. This film, which is meant to be his last assignment, takes us through what it's like to be an informant for the FBI- including the ethically questionable practices and the murky justifications behind them.

Cartel Land Documentary

3. Cartel Land. Being from Arizona, I am no stranger to the Mexican drug cartels, so this one hit home. Cartel Land offers a unique look at the havoc caused by cartels from the perspective of both sides of the border. South of the border, the film tells the story of Dr. Mireles Valverde, the founder and leader of the Autodefensas, a people's police that was created to combat the cartels. North of the border, we hear from Tim "Nailer" Foley of Arizona Border Recon which is focused on locating and documenting cartel movement of drugs on to U.S. soil. Through this film and these two men, we are immersed in the middle of the chaos into a position where we must attempt to distinguish heroes from villains.

Going Clear scientology documentary

4. Going Clear. This film explores how intelligent, curious individuals can allow themselves to become immersed in something so degrading- Scientology. Going Clear introduces its audience to L. Ron Hubbard, the troubled and imaginative mind behind Scientology, as well as his successor David Miscavige. The director takes us inside the church's battle with the IRS, details its hoarded wealth, and offers an insider look into its shocking treatment of Scientology's opponents. The film urges you to ask yourself: what makes a religion and how does Scientology fit into that definition? This film will have you on the edge of your seat.
