Operation: Get Life Together

Good Morning!! Happy Friday! What kind of shenanigans are you getting into today? I will be spending my day working on the front living room which is pretty much the kids playroom. Oh, and laundry…always laundry. …sometimes…I wish I could have someone just do my laundry for me…where’s my mommy when I need her?! Enough! No more pitty party…onward to more important things. Like Project: Get Life Together. {project – because operation sounds like I’m going off to war…which I guess…in a sense I am…} I’ve decided that I am tired of my house being in shambles and using the […]

Boycott Starbucks

Let me ask you… Does this cup offend you?? No? Me neither. Yes? Why? Apparently some Arizonian who has nothing better to do than criticize a coffee company is extremely offended by this simple red cup. Why might you ask? Because Starbucks has traded their normal holiday cup for this. In past years, Starbucks has had “Christmas” printed on their cups. This year they don’t. So what’s the hoopla about? Christians are mad!!! They think that Starbucks has become the modern day Grinch and stealing Christmas! If there is one thing that you learned from watching How the Grinch Stole […]

All Hallows’ Eve

Happy Halloween! Who’s excited for trick or treating? I know the kids sure are! At least the treating part…but what’s Halloween without some tricks too?? 😉 Friday was the kindergarten parade at school. Can you say holy cuteness?! I wish they had this type of thing when I was a kid. Instead of superheroes and princesses… …they would have seen witches and lions from this girl 😂 The whole school came out to see this kiddos in their get ups and screamed when they came out, gave them high fives, and cheered them on!! It was a pretty big deal […]

Overview – 6 Years Ago

It’s amazing the wreck I was 6 years ago. How unhappy, depressed and pissed off I was all the time. Every FB post was something negative. Granted, I had a lot on my plate back then – brand new baby, kicked out of the house I was living in, bouncing around every couple weeks to a new friends house with my baby, no car, no job, no place to call home, a sociopath for a boyfriend, basically just a downward spiral that went on for months – just lots of toxic situations and relationships. So much negativity. After applying to […]

Homemade Healing Teas

Teas you make yourself will be more potent and flavorful. Plus, you know EXACTLY what’s in the them. Herbal teas can be very yummy and super flavorful and can deliver 50-90% of the medicinal qualities of the herbs used. The teas that you make yourself, at home, will be even more potent and flavorful and will cost you more than half the price to make than buying it already made for you. I’m all for experimenting with different herbs and creating your own blend! But be careful to avoid any that you can’t identify confidently being edible or any that […]

What Is Clean Eating?

What is clean eating?? Well…what would you say if I told you that there aren’t very many health goals you will be able to achieve without it?? …drats!… Yeah…I know…we’re not going to get Victoria’s Angels bodies by eating nachos, burritos and taco’s every day…and that makes me very sad… …pity party over… This is…we can workout all we want from morning till night…but if we keep hitting up the local taco shop one our way home from the gym, we’re just not going to get anywhere fast. We’re just not. The simple truth is…you just can’t get healthy without […]

Stress Can Kill

I’m not kidding when I say that. Stress has also been linked to some common medical problems like Alzheimer’s, heart disease, gastrointestinal problems, depression, asthma, headaches, diabetes, and the list goes on! Stress doesn’t just make us feel like poo emotionally, it can also exacerbate just about every health condition you can name off the top of you head and then some. Our cells grow at an increased rate when we are stressed, making us grow older than we really are, and making us more prone to age-related diseases, like heart disease and diabetes.  When we are stressed out, our bodies release […]

Run to Your Happy Place

Sole Searching I’ll be honest…I’m not a runner. I have tried so many times to pick up running and because I’m not good at it, I have given up. Yep. Every time. But that hasn’t stopped me from wanting to be better at it. I will try again (once it gets cooler again). Continuing on… During my times of when I was running daily, I noticed how awesome I felt afterwards. That is, after I laid on my floor thinking I was going to die, and finally recovered, I noticed. Have you ever noticed how a good run leaves you […]

Living With a Narcissistic Sociopath

I was in a relationship (relationshit) with a guy, who I can’t even call a man, because he wasn’t one, for 6 years. I should have known in the beginning that he wasn’t any good. He was an ex drug addict. But I didn’t listen. We started dating, and after a few short months, the novelty wore off like it always does (or so I thought) and he was a total prick. I should have ended it right then and there but of course I didn’t. He had already done his damage. He was mean, crude and rude. He belittled […]
