Oh my, where has the time gone?! It’s been 2 months since my last post. I love this blog and my readers, but being a single mom and special education teacher keeps me busy. I don’t know if I’ll ever find the groove of posting weekly. But I can promise I’ll never give up. So keep reading while I update you on all the Sass, Laughs, and Mayhem.

Update 1

November – January is a busy time for most people due to the holidays. For me it is exacerbated with the amount of birthdays in my family (10!). And oh yeah… my sister had another baby… on the same day she had her last baby just one year ago! (November 30, if anyone was wondering). So now we’re officially up to 11. Including mine! So that’s the first update: I have a new baby niece. Yay!

Update 2

Gift Hero listed Sass, Laughs, and Mayhem as one of the best blogs for moms! You can find that list here. It is sorted into categories such as fashion, finance, pregnancy, and of course the category I’m in: single mom. It is not in any particular order aside from being categorized, so you’ll find me next to #38. Also… cool news for me… I am on the same list as Emma Johnson who created Wealthy Single Mommy. In case you forgot, I love her site and even shared an article written by her! Cheers to my second update: more blog recognition!

Update 3

My apartment has been completely renovated. This is not something I really shared on the blog before, but it was gutted and completely redone and I’m loving how it turned out. I have been working on making it feel cozy and a reflection of me. I think I’m doing a good job. What do you think?


Gutted was not an exaggeration, guys.

Update 4

I let Sass go to Texas. On a plane. Alone. To see her father. For Christmas.

Let’s all take a minute to let this one sink in.

I let Sass go to Texas. On a plane. Alone. To see her father. For Christmas.

Plane ready

If you have been around this blog for awhile you know the relationship with my ex has been estranged at best. But I’ve made sure to never say anything bad in front of Sass. I didn’t want my opinions of him to taint her feelings. So anyway… Sass hasn’t seen her father since she was 3. For reference, she’ll be 9 in 3 days. I can literally count the number of times they’ve spoken on the phone per year. So when ex’s new wife (THAT is definitely a post for another time) reached out to me about reconnecting Sass with her father, I was hesitant, but open to the idea. Sass wanted to go, so I let her. Long story short, she went, enjoyed her time, now she’s back, and she’ll never leave my side again till she’s 42.

LMAO! Just kidding. Kinda.

Update 5

I’ve lost 9 pounds since New Year’s day! Also a post for another day. But my weight loss is basically the result of giving up dairy. So if you’ve been wondering if you should cut dairy out, my answer is yes!


I’m pretty sure I’ve forgotten something because motherhood is neverending and I seem to be losing brain cells as my children age. But this is the gist of where Sass, Laughs, and Mayhem has been. What have you been up to?
