Hate: A Note to My Boys

My heart is aching for you. I never thought that you would be growing up in a time where our country would be so divided. We live in the best country there is. Unfortunately, over the last few years our country has been on a slow decline and I believe…

I’m not ready

I hated school growing up. I especially hated middle school. Middle school is a tough transition year that most of us forget about. It was an awkward and confusing time in my life.  Body changes and hormones, friend’s vs bullies, upper-classman. I think most of us forget that period in…

Daily Update

This working out thing isn’t going according to plan. Since I posted last, I have worked out everyday except for this past weekend. I started 21 day fix workouts, not the diet. The workouts really kicked my butt for the first few days but have been getting easier. The boys…

Raising Boys

I am a mom of 2 boys. Two preteen, smelly, obnoxious, farting boys. I have heard the words balls and butt more than I care to count. Boys are gross and hard to raise. More times than not, I feel like I’m doing it all wrong. For the past 11 years…

It’s not just a number

I have struggled with my weight since I was pregnant with my first born (12 years ago). Still trying to lose my baby weight! The scale has been up and down but mostly on a slow rise. I would work out here and there but nothing consistent, well at least…

Heavy Heart

I have a heavy heart today, I’m sad and frustrated. I’m so sick of seeing all of the negativity in this country. The fighting, the racism, the judging. From the National Anthem to judging people on their parenting skills, who are we to judge? We live in a fantastic country, one where…

A New Day

Jameson’s Snickerdoodles

I absolutely love Snickerdoodle cookies. Light, fluffy, sugary goodness. Well my husband decided to add a new spin to these incredible bites of heaven…Jameson’s and Bailey’s! What? That’s what I put in my coffee on the weekends, not in my cookies. Well, let me tell you, they are AMAZING! Substitute ingredients…

Road Trip Time

My husband calls us modern-day pioneers exploring the land and adventuring across the US in our trusty covered wagon aka the Honda Pilot. He’s so cute. He absolutely loves to travel, I think he’s part gypsy. I wish I shared in his enthusiasm more but most of the time I’m just…

Roasted Ranch Potatoes

Roasted Ranch Potatoes are absolutely amazing and I have to give my husband all the credit. I wanted butter and parsley potatoes with dinner and he wanted roasted, so we compromised (sort of). We decided on Roasted Potatoes with parsley which quickly morphed into a new recipe. Check it out!…
