The last time I wrote, I was pretty pumped about getting to accomplish one of my life goals, participate in a 5K. I am disappointed to report that it didn’t happen. I wanted it to happen, but it didn’t.Continue reading
Many people talk about checking things off their bucket lists or things they’d like to do before they die. However, I refuse to have a bucket list, or rather, I refuse to call my list that. As with most things in life, I enjoy putting a positive spin on things so instead of focusing on what I want to do before I kick the proverbial bucket, I think of it as what I want to achieve in my life time. Same premise, less focus on the life ending part. I call mine my life list. Some of the things have specific time stamps and some do not. But why should you have one? I’m glad you asked!Continue reading
I have absolutely no idea how it’s April already. I feel like I blinked and three months passed. Granted, at the same time, some of the days in between felt like a blinking and half a second went by. Anyway, March was an interesting month for us. My husband is in the middle of changing his career which has brought a bit of stress but it has remained surprisingly manageable. It’s amazing what can happen when you focus on supporting your spouse and leaning on God for support. I know that sounds like a super cheesy, uber bible thumping, self help book but it’s the truth. More on that another time. Here’s what I found in the month of March that I’m loving!Continue reading
We all go through seasons of life that are great, and some that just plain stink. It’s easy to go through the good times. They’re good! But how do we break free from those not so wonderful times. I’m not talking about true tragedy or deep depression. Please, if that describes you, ask for help. I’m talking about those times where you just don’t feel like yourself. When you don’t feel inspired or motivated. Life can throw in these wrenches in from time to time and I like to be prepared. These rough patches don’t have to be debilitating, use them to grow and learn more about yourself.Continue reading
February felt just as quick as January for me but that probably has a lot to do with the fact that its 2-3 days shorter than all the other months. I hope yours was filled with all the 50-75% off Valentine candy you could stomach and lots of love! I’m not big on all the “love day” celebrations but I will say that I enjoy the holiday for my boys. Gav and I went to the Valentine dance at his school and I can’t begin to express just how special that was for us. We dressed up, had dinner, got our picture taken, and it was something I have looked forward to since first finding out we were having a boy 6+ years ago. Other than our fabulous dance date, here’s 5 more things that I’m loving from February:
What were some of your highlights/favorites from February?
My sweet 2 year old has been out of a crib for some times now. Like, before he actually turned two. He was basically catapulting himself out over the edge sideways with zero regard for safely so, you know, it was time. The other thing he started doing, much to my utter dismay, was ripping off all of the decals he could reach. What decals you ask? These…Continue reading
Let’s be real. If I could, I would own everything from all craft stores. I literally mean that. I’m the lady you see at Hobby Lobby or Michael’s (sometimes multiple days of the week) that roams every aisle. I’m also that lady you see that zooms from one side of the store to the other, then back, then the middle, and then back again to the first side. That’s usually when I’m thinking of a project and want to consider all my options. Yes, I’m the crazy craft lady. But if I had to pare it all down to my must have craft items, the ones I use most, the ones that will be most useful to the casual DIYer, the list would look a little something like this…Continue reading
For some it’s felt like January went on forever and for some, it flew by. For me, I love January. The newness, the birthdays, the reset mode mindset, the birthdays…..did I mention the birthdays. It’s always been one of my favorite months and here are five things that loved about this particular one.
Bonus faves: Donut cakes for the cutest six year old birthday boy and that gorgeous Kate Spade (my first designer bag ever!) from my bestie for my birthday.
Now it’s YOUR turn! What was the highlight of your January?
In my last post I tackled the preventative/corrective measure that I’m taking to keep my skin looking it’s best. But there is an even more important part of doing better for my skin that I’m trying move towards. Less chemicals. Honestly I’m trying to do this in as many areas of my life as I can but what never occurred to me was something I’ve always used, makeup.
Makeup is full of junk that our skin, our largest organ, is constantly absorbing. Let that SINK IN. (See what I did there?!) It’s really crazy when you sit down to think about it. If you were to turn over a number of makeup bottles on the drugstore shelf, you’d find a list of ingredients you’d never want on your skin in the first place and most you probably can’t pronounce. This is where I introduce you to my friend, Rebecca.Continue reading
