Boy, Does Summer Break Change When You Are A Mom

Remember when summer break meant spending all day everyday with friends, hanging out by the pool, staying up late, hitting the beach, going on road trips, vacations with just friends? Boy…does all that change when you become a mom. Now summer break entail: Play dates and talking to moms you have nothing in common with.  Planning kid birthday parties (yes, they are fun but tend to be more stressful than planning your own birthday…why?) Instead of lounging by the pool, you are the lifeguard on duty. Instead of just being “the girls” it’s now…the girls and a million kids.  Instead […]

5 Things to Clean in a Time Crunch

We’ve all been there… We have one kid throwing a tantrum, another one destroying the crayon bin and yet another one screaming at us because their favorite shirt isn’t clean. And then…you get that phone call or text…be there in 10! SAY WHAT!? I personally go into full blown panic attack mode. I mean…who does that to a person. Especially a semi-sane mama like myself.

Hello Friends! It’s Taco Tuesday!

Hi Friends! Happy Taco Tuesday! I hope you are having a fab day 🙂 As of late…I’ve been a little absent from my blog.
