Feeling better

I’ve started to feel tons better then I have been. I was able to get out of bed and clean the house which was nice, and was able to work and got an order filled today. Now I’m waiting for Marcus to get home, and I think he’s bringing dinner too. Things have been going okay besides Marcus working a ton. It’s been snowing here on and off for the last week I think, and so lots of tea and snuggling for me. I’m super close to 2,000 viewers on here, so thank you so much for that! I’m currently sitting in bed watching Netflix and debating on whether to take a hot bath or not. My UTI is still making me just a bit sore, but I do feel good enough to get up and move around that’s for sure. Anyway, thank you guys so much for all the love and support as always. Much love.



I ended up having to send Marcus to the store last night. It’s been a few years since my last UTI (Urinary Tract Infection), but here she came full force, like a freight train. So straight cranberry juice and Azo for me. If it’s not one thing, it’s another which is what I would use to sum up yesterday. First of all, my laptop that I ended up fixing was almost no longer, now it has no sound. Yes I’ve tried resetting and everything like that. Then, there was an argument between someone and I (not going to mention names), which put me in a more foul mood. And then finally, this damn infection, which thankfully Marcus is the kind of husband that he is, and stayed up to go get me meds and juice. Pretty much the only good thing about yesterday was that Marcus made us a really good dinner and I ate it all in less than 10 minutes. Oh, and my package shipped too, so there’s that. So now, I’m sitting in bed writing this, trying to relax, and waiting for my husband to get home. But anyway, thank you guys for all the love and support as always. Much love.


I am so freaking excited. I officially get my washer and dryer tomorrow! I know that’s a total wife thing to say, but that means we don’t have to go and use my parents anymore. Granted we will alternate going there on Sundays or them coming here for dinner. Congrats to us, we’ve adulted, which is exactly what we did yesterday. Also, I’ve been running a party for my Lipsense (yes I do that now) so it’s been a little hectic. But we also went big grocery shopping (thank you Lord), and now we have food in our house. Marcus also surprised me with a lunch and dinner date yesterday, so that was super nice to be able to spend that time with him. He works all day today and tomorrow, so we are soaking up as much time together as we can. I know it seems pretty silly, but we actually don’t get that much time together. He works a TON, and more so now because it’s banquet season. Anyway, we are gearing up for Christmas, and I’m so excited to buy gifts it’s ridiculous. Anyway, thank you guys for all the love and support as always. Much love.

Happy thanksgiving

Happy thanksgiving everybody! Last night we went to our very first friendsgiving, and had a good time. So today, we are going over to my parents to celebrate with them, and I’m trying my hand at a new green bean recipe (don’t worry it’s linked below). Papa and Oma are still on their way home, so we are crossing our fingers that they might be here Sunday. We are doing three thanksgivings this year. That’s right, three. Yesterday, today, and then since Papa and Oma can’t make it back in time one when they get here. Our little family celebration will be in our new place, so we’ve got to set up and unpack the rest of everything else. Thank God my niece is coming to stay with us because she offered to help. Anyway, I’m hanging out at home with the furbabies, and I’m thinking about all that we’ve gone through this year. I’m thankful for my amazing husband who works so hard, my two furkids who drive me insane but I love them both with all my heart, my mom and dad, my in laws, my aunts who do so much for us, Papa and Oma, but most of all I’m thankful for you guys who come and read this little blog of mine. Thank you guys so much for all the love and support as always. Have a happy thanksgiving from my little clan to yours. Much love.


Well, it’s a cold and rainy one here today (shocker I know). So my best option was to take the dogs out for a quick potty break, and make a spice cake from the box cause I’m not that cool, and have yet to learn how to make a homemade one. I’m working on it I promise. I’m currently curled up on our couch waiting for Marcus to get home, and watching the rain fall. Papa and Oma are FINALLY on their way back home from Germany (it took forever for them to get a flight), so that’s some relief for us. I’m also trying to be that wife that home makes everything, and so far it’s going better than I expected. Honestly I just wanna curl up in bed and stay there today, but there is unpacking to be done still before Papa and Oma get home because we all know they will wanna see our new place. I’m not mad about it, I just don’t wanna unpack anymore. Anyway, not much going on here today except for the fact I might go unpack some more in my beauty room. Thank you guys so much for all the love and support as always. Much love.


I know it’s been awhile since you heard from me, so I figured an update is in order. We are finally in our new place, and have been since the first of this month, we have Internet as of the 10th, and unfortunately we are still in the process of unpacking. We have a lot of shit. Life has just been happening as usual, Marcus has been working a lot, and I’ve been trying to put the apartment together myself. It’s coming along, but I wish it was going faster than it has been. Shatzie turns 1 year old in two weeks, and so far Toby hasn’t had any Pica incidents (crossing our fingers on that one). Still trucking along on the baby train, so no news there. I’m hoping to have some sort of update for you soon though. Other than that, everything is pretty normal in the Merrick household for now. Thanksgiving is coming up, so we will be able to have people over for pie and such. Yay for a bigger place. That also includes Christmas day since Christmas eve is my mom’s thing. Anyway, thank you guys so much for all the love and support as always. Much love.
