My Story

Michelle Tucker

Michelle Tucker

A mom of two seeking a little sanity in the everyday.

To me, blonde isn’t just a hair color, it is a state of mind. Blonde has always made me feel bright, optimistic, and that I can take on the world.  I have been blonde since my teen years, and I have found that just like life, maintaining blonde takes lot of work and a ton of maintenance to keep those those dark roots from taking over.  

Blonde isn’t just a hair color, it is a state of mind…”

Today, I am happily married raising our two children in the San Francisco Bay area.   I am still blonde, but I am finding that blonde is even harder to maintain while navigating the trials and tribulations of parenthood and life over 40.  So, come be blonde with me as I share my experiences and tips on everything from family life, to our experiences with learning disabilities, and how I have learned to find sanity in the everyday.

    Happy Mother’s Day! I found a way to get a Mother’s Day photo with my kids even though I’m stuck in my room with Covid!

I’m so bummed. I’ve made it 2 1/2 years without getting this stupid virus, but now I guess it’s my turn. Honestly, I almost knew in my gut that I was going to get it when I got on that plane and everyone was coughing around me and no one had a mask on.  Ugh.  #happymothersday #covidmothersday #boocovid

    Well crud. First time flying anywhere since they lifted the mask mandates, and guess who is now home sick?! Ugh. 

If you watched my stories you saw that my trip home was quite the debacle. I ended up getting stuck in Dallas for a while and finally got home at about 3 AM. I woke up the next morning instantly with a horrible sore throat, headache, cough at all the other fun stuff.  Unfortunately it has only gotten worse. So I’m off to the doctor today. 

This is my first time I think that I’ve been sick in probably three years! So I don’t know if I’m just a baby, or if it’s just hitting me harder than usual.  #sickie #traveling

    Do you have a flight uniform? What I mean is, do you wear the same thing every time you fly? 

I’ve literally been wearing the same thing on warm weather flights for years. My white cargo pants, with a black tee shirt, covered with a black cardigan. You will also catch me wearing my bandana on my head every time as well. 

I really don’t know why this is my go-to outfit. All I do know now is that it would feel wrong if I didn’t wear it. So, just curious, does anyone else wear the same thing over and over when they fly? #whatiworetoday #whatiweartoday #whatiwear #travelstyle

    Never a dull day! On the same day that my youngest left for camp, my oldest came home with a knee injury! 

Like mother like son. I’ve had several knee injuries in my life and they are not fun. This is not a torch I wanted to pass. As of right now they think it’s just a bad sprain. 🤞 We’ll know more when we see the Orthopedic on Monday. Wish us luck. #momlife #realmomlife #realmom

    🏝Vacation mode activated 🏝
We are spending spring break in beautiful Maui. We actually had no intention of coming back to Maui a second year in a row, but when I saw a non-stop deal on @southwestair for $189 round trip, I had to jump on it. 

Do you ever let deals sway where you go on vacation? I have always been a bargain hunter.  There have been many times where I’ve seen an incredible deal and let that decide where we were headed on our next trip. Needless to say, I’m pretty stoked about this trip. I will never turn down a trip to Hawaii. #vacationmode #mauihawaii #onvacation #southwestairlines

    Losing an hour of sleep is for the birds! Actually, I don’t think even thing the birds were awake when we got up this morning!

I can say without a doubt that I did not know this weekend was daylight savings time when I volunteered to go camping with the Girl Scouts!  7 AM came extra early this morning after bunking with 11 ten-year-olds!. Please send lots of coffee! #daylightsavings #girlscoutcamp #coffeeplease
