Guess who's back... back again?

(cue creepy organ music)
Muah, ah, ah, ah! I'm BA-ack...

What a better time of year to come back from the dead than Halloween, right? You didn't think I would be gone forever, did you? Well, honestly, I did.


See ya later.

I knew this time had to come, but that doesn't take away this weird, empty feeling.

I have decided to no longer post at Peacoats & Plaid. I'm sure this isn't that much of a shock to some of you that have been along with me on my journey as I tried to figure out how to balance a booming dance studio business with motherhood and this blog. It's all become too much. I always vowed that if the negatives started to outweigh the positives it was time to throw in the towel.

But, not all is lost. I'm starting over brand new with a personal blog at bre pea. Since I was a kid I have kept a diary or journal. This blog has been my virtual journal and a way to document our life activities and Bean's growing up, I knew I wanted to continue with this minus the stressful monetization/blog hullabaloo. I've always loved blogging as a hobby but the problem is I turned that hobby into a side business. My go-getter drive turned my blogging venture into a chore.

If you want to keep up with my life, come on over and subscribe to my new Bloglovin' or RSS feed. If not, all of the content found here will stay until who knows when.

I'll see ya later.


Emergency ONE ingredient sunburn relief with photo evidence.

Oooh boy, did I get the worst sunburn that I have had in years. Shame on me. I assure you, Bean was not prompted to pose in this photo. She was as appalled by my sunburn as I was. Luckily, I stumbled upon a home sunburn remedy that required just one common ingredient. I was in enough pain that I was ready to try just about anything.

I can't believe what this simple, one ingredient home remedy for painful sunburn is!
