I mowed the lawn for the first time EVER! Let's hope I don't destroy any trees or run over anything important.

How did I get to be in my 30s without ANY lawn mower experience? This is why…

It started as my sister’s chore when we were growing up and she was paid for the chore (even though she killed many trees in the process). There was no way she was about to let me in on the job (since I would have proven to be much better at the task and would have taken all the money).

Then, I lived on a college campus where mowing was not my responsibility.

Then, I lived in a townhouse. Then, I lived in an apartment. Again, not my responsibility.

Then, I had a house but also two babies in a row who needed me constantly and a husband happy to have the time alone to listen to a podcast.

So the time has finally come for me to learn. I had to wait for the time to be right (when Troy got sick and was too weak to put up a fight).

I did it! I feel like a true adult.

CLUELESS ABOUT MAKEUP | More overwhelming than expected

Kathy Thornburg

Over time, I have slowly incorporated new makeup items into my routine, but I am in no way an expert! I decided to challenge myself a bit and try a LOT of new items I've never used before (highlighter, primer, cream blush, oh my!). I might have taken on a bit more than I can handle.

You can find some ELF products in stores, at or on the e.l.f. website. You'll likely find the best deal at the ELF Cosmetics websites. Just be aware that they do NOT accept returns or exchanges. They will however replace items damaged during shipping.

Use my link for $5 off your e.l.f. purchase!

Here's what I got...
High Definition Undereye Powder
No Budge Retractable Liner
Iris Beilin Mis Amores Lip Palette
Kiss It Goodbye Lip Color Remover
Silver 11 Piece Brush Collection
Acne Fighting Spot Gel with Aloe
Beauty Shield Primer (Favorite product!)
Glitter Silicone Blender Duo
Poreless Face Primer- Large
Cream Blush Palette
Mattifying Clay Mask (So refreshing)
Retractable Kabuki Brush
Shadow Lock Eyelid Primer
Antioxidant Booster Drops
Beautifully Bare Satin Lipstick
Velvet Matte Lipstick
Iris Beilin Mis Amores Beauty Clutch
Lip Exfoliator (I would skip...easy to DIY)
Free gift with purchase (Eye shadow, highlighter, lipstick)

I don't know about you, but I love to learn little facts about people to get to know them better. Often, when we become parents, our lives center around our children and we can forget that we are still individuals too! :) Life is full of phases and I'm now in the phase where I'm rediscovering who I am and what I love to do. I love love LOVE my husband and my children, but this little get to know me is just about me this time.

I'm always curious to hear about other people's educational background and whether or not they actually end up using their degree / training. Here's my story! I'm not currently using my degree in my career, but I have zero regrets in my college journey and absolutely LOVE what I do as a graphic designer.

If you need a graphic designer, I'd be honored to be considered for the opportunity! You can contact me HERE.

The Direction of My YouTube Channel

Kathy Thornburg

Many of you first found me because of food allergies. As my son gets older, I feel the need to give him more privacy online in regards to his food allergies. This subject will still come up here and there but most likely will center around how I handle situations and not how he is handling food allergies. If there ever is content about either of my children on this channel or on my blog, it is never shared without their permission. SO what does that mean for the content you can expect in the future?

Our main focus will fall into the following categories...

  • MAKING A LIVING (my graphic design business)
  • ME (about me or encouraging you!)

Food allergies will trickle into those videos whenever it comes about naturally but will not be forced into the mix otherwise.
