About Jennifer Todryk
Hey there! I’m Jenn.

Things get a little loud and chaotic over here from time to time. I blame the three child beasts ... and Mike is loud too. But, I hope to bring you nothing but happiness, inspiration, good home decor and only the comfiest clothing recommendations because, who really enjoys pants .... ? And most importantly a good laugh. I hope you laugh a lot… even if it’s at my expense.

Red’s Weekly Thread 5/17

by Jennifer


We’ve made it! The kids may have tried to take us down a couple of days this week but we PREVAILED. Congrats for staying alive.

This week kicks off Summer for us! Berkley’s last day of school was today and Von’s first week of Summer was this week. Lord help us all. All jokes aside, I’m really excited for Summer! I’m very ready for a much more relaxed schedule. Vivi is beyond pumped about school being done so her morning nap will no longer be disrupted due to toting her sister to school. We talked about it 😉

Currently Watching:

Dead To Me: Mike and I just started watching this show on Netflix and it is so so good! It is funny, suspenseful, and definitely binge-worthy. Christina Applegate stars in this lighthearted psychological thriller where she is trying to figure out who killed her husband in a hit and run, while forming a friendship with a funny lady who has secrets of her own.

You: Unfortunately, we had to stop watching because I am basically a twelve year old girl when it comes to watching uncomfortable “adult relations” scenes. It is definitely intriguing and one to watch if those scenes don’t wig you out.  I know, I’m lame.

Currently Reading:

The Wife Between Us: One day I will read enough chapters to talk about this book more. Today is not that day. I am continuing to read this though!

Personal Updates:

I feel like I already shared our personal update which is SUMMER! My overall Summer prayer is that my dear Berkley-bear keeps us out of the hospital. Girlfriend trips, falls, bangs, stubbs, runs into, get smacked by, and basically becomes victim to every thing in life. She is my sweet happy go lucky child that literally skips into everything. So, that’s where I’m at mentally when thinking about Summer and all this time at home within the walls that continually sneak up on her.

Vivienne is about to be SEVEN MONTHS which is just sad and offensive.

Oh, and I’m going to start working out again, so be on the lookout of me falling off of our very dusty treadmill in stories.

… but for real though.

I'm no longer in Colorado or California now I'm based out of AL living primarily in MO. Currently in OK with my fiancee for his work.
  • Thanks for all the things you shared. This blog seems like a lot of work. You are so refreshing to watch on IG. I laughed so much last night when you and Mike went live. Thanks for bringing a smile and several laughs to me daily!
  • You aren’t alone with the “adult relations” scenes. I just don't enjoy watching shows like that. I guess I am just private about that stuff. I almost died when I watched the live from last night. You and mike singing. O. M. G. ???. And Legit almost peed my pants laughing about the engagement story. Thanks for all the information you provide us. But even more for the laughs!

  • Hey there Jen! Been following you on Insta since last fall sometime. I enjoy your craziness and how real you are. Truly curious how you watch Game of Thrones with all of it's "adult relations"?

  • Love Love LOVE your stories, sarcasm, humor, & basically everything that you post. I love sharing your fun with my girl friends because it’s so light hearted & refreshing. I’m a new mama to a 1 year old & have some educational questions. When did you really start the home schooling type stuff with your kiddos? Would you be willing to post some of the stuff that you used for learning when they were little or what you kind of plan on doing with Vivi? I know the educational post is a ton of work so no biggie if you can’t. You’re amazing! ❤️
  • keep going with the wife between us! I just read this for my book club and it definitely a page turner. The twist is very confusing at first but makes total sense after you wrap your head around it
  • Just have to say thank you for sharing your life so openly with us. Love your humor and frankness on every little issue. And love all the deals, tips and advice both home and fashion. Keep it coming!
