Strength Developed From Motherhood

Before kids, I slept in as late as I wanted, on Egyptian Cotton sheets with the highest thread count, waking up to the peaceful sounds of nothingness. I could book a massage, then grab lunch on an outdoor patio. Remember those days, girls? Running to the grocery store was a breeze. It was just Me, […]

Botox Gone Bad

My best friend called me in tears- her beauty treatment turned her into a beast (her words not mine.) Her first time trying to tackle wrinkles with Botox… went terribly wrong. Before even “going under” the needle, I would recommend using someone who you’ve actually seen their work (example: a friend’s face). Personally, I know […]

The Appliance that Changed My life

My sister turned me on to Instant Pot several years ago. She had purchased one to give away as a Christmas gift, but ended up keeping it. 24 hours later I received a phone call telling me I had to order one of these amazing appliances right away. People always ask its worth buying one, […]

10 Reasons Why I Love Target More Than Costco

Target. Costco. Two words that send moms into declarations of love while conjuring up gleeful images of roaming the aisles with reckless abandon, scoring deal after deal. While both stores offer large quantities of family items, from floss to furniture, all at reasonable prices – moms seem to pledge their allegiance to just one. #TeamTarget or […]

A Reality TV Series About My Reality?

I’m probably one of the few people on the planet who doesn’t watch Dance Moms. It’s because I grew up dancing and spent time in the competition scene, and the show is nowhere close to my reality. But if it wasn’t so extreme no one would watch it.

The Working Mom’s Radius

After all of January’s talk of resolutions and goals, I got to thinking about one of my long-term goals that has been in the works since before I even had kids. One day, I was talking to a coworker in an office in another state. We were working on a deadline, and she told me […]

A Day In My Life… With Two Toddlers

I’m at stay-at-home mom with two toddlers – Carter is 3.5 and Mackenzie is 1.5 years old.  I feel so lucky and grateful to spend every day with my little ones and watch them grow and learn. But I’m not going to lie, life with two toddlers is pretty much the definition of chaos. Wonderful, fun, heart-warming […]
