Ok, honestly I haven’t really changed, just became a better version of my “old” self. Over the past year I have been really focusing on my own mental health, personal growth, and figuring out what is next. After 3.5 years, this Fall semester I will be defending my dissertation and becoming Dr. Blair Stamper. In […]

Today marked a major milestone in my doctoral journey. As an Arizona State University EdD student, we are privileged to participate in the yearly Doctoral Research Conference (DRC). It is a virtual event where all of the students, regardless of their cohort year, share their research journeys. Colleagues connect over similar active research studies and […]

I’m sure you’ve heard the huge hype of the Netflix Original Movie, Bird Box.  I’m not normally one of the ones to jump on the bandwagon of watching shows just because everyone else has seen it.  But, of course, I got sucked into it when my husband started watching it one Friday night.  You may […]

Recently, I’ve been wondering how in the world my husband can go to the store for t-shirts and spend $40 and get 5-6 shirts.  Whereas I go to the store and get 4 shirts and have to pay $65.  Am I just shopping wrong?  Do I get different brands?  Or, is there truly a difference […]

When Brett and I started talking about parenting, I thought I knew exactly who I was going to be.  I am a huge planner, as many of you know, so I read all the baby books, Googled all the symptoms, and prepared in whatever way I thought possible. My vision of being a parent was […]

It was Wednesday, September 13th.  I was 39 weeks and 4 days.  My last day of work was going to be that Friday.  My boss had bought me a Spa Package and I thought it was the perfect time to use it since my due date was fast approaching.  I took the day off and […]

Ever since I announced I was pregnant, it is like people foam at the mouth around me.  They don’t understand the idea of “if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it at all.”  OR they think that because I’m pregnant, that means they don’t have to have a filter around me.  Either […]

10 Things Never to Say to a Pregnant Lady

Domino (our dog) makes me laugh.  When she is frustrated and bored, she often sits on top of you or barks and whines until she gets attention.  She basically takes my feelings and vocalizes them (they do say your dogs take on your personalities). I have been beyond bored lately.  Like, I come home, sit […]

When I first became pregnant, I associated mom2mom with a fun sale.  Moms working together to lift one another up, haggle with prices, and support one another.  Moms asking for advice and helping one another get through the toughest job of motherhood. Instead, mom2mom now has a negative connotation in my world. Don’t get me […]
