New Year. New You.

Is anyone doing New Year’s Resolutions? I’m not. They just aren’t for me. I just try to be better than I was the year before. But…some where along the way…I fall off that path and just stay the same. Same isn’t bad, but there is no growth in staying the same. We only grow, when we get outside of our comfort zones and do things we’ve never done before. So this year…this year will be my year! 2016 is going to be the BEST year yet!! What are some things you are going to do different in the new year?? […]

Oh, Holidays…

I hope it’s been full of delicious tacos and breakfast sodas 🙂 What are you doing for Christmas?? We went to go look at Christmas lights last night!! I haven’t done that for a couple years now and now that Wes is older, I really wanted to take him so he could appreciate all the hard work that those people go through to make their house’s look amazing!

Mother Knows Best

Afternoon my beautiful peeps! I woke up this morning with a pep in my step and set out to accomplish many things this morning…well… ….nothing has really gotten done…at all… Apparently my brain is going a few hundred miles an hour right now and I just can’t concentrate on one thing…I’m thinking about many things right now… …laundry, Christmas & Christmas presents, decorations for a pre-teen girl’s room, mothering advice, hustling, laundry, all the places in the house that needs attention for cleaning and organizing, how I want to organize all those places, interior decoration, projects, sleep, Jax and how […]

Hiking Is The Answer…Who Cares What The Question Is.

Is there something that you used to do quite often?? But for whatever reason…you just stopped… That’s a few things for me. I’m slowly getting back to my old self and finding my love for hiking again as changed my outlook a lot! I used to go at least once a week during the winter…if not more. But things happen and people change (for better or worse) and we stop doing the things we once love. There is not a reason really…I mean I guess sometimes. My reason for quitting hiking was….my son. Don’t ask why I used him as […]

Are you a wine drinker? Are you a wine bottle hoarder? Really…any type of bottle hoarder would do…?? If so…then I have a project for you! Aren’t these just the cutest!! ^^^ I’ve been saving wine and champagne bottles for a while now…originally, I wanted to cut them but…I needed a bottle cutter…and I just don’t have one…nor is it a necessity or in the budget at the moment. Oh well! House decor it is! Ready to get crafty?!? Here’s what you’ll need: ~ Wine bottles or any glass bottle. ~ Hot glue gun ~ Goof Off (optional) ~ Razor […]

I’m Back!

Hey everyone! It’s been awhile! I’ve been super busy over here and slowly losing my mind in the process. Kidding…at least I think so… I spent the entire weekend and the days before Thanksgiving making my front living room go from this… (which is part of my Project: Get Life Together movement)   To this… I really need to find something to put on that wall, so I can take down the kids artwork. I used to homeschool Wes before he started Kindergarten, and that’s where we hung everything. Even though the kids (mostly Wes) have taken over the front […]

Um…She’s Like…So Unpopular…

Happy Saturday Evening peeps! I’m going to be honest…I haven’t changed out of my PJ’s today… …. And it was glorious! I even slept till 9:30am which was even MORE glamorous. I haven’t been able to sleep in…in…I don’t even know how long. …also…I didn’t do anything all day either! Okay…that’s a little bit of an understatement…I did go get burritos! And they were oh so yummy! Story time! As I’m sitting in this drive-thru line…which is actually taken forever…I’m just minding my own business right? Just hanging out in the my mom truck – jamming out, having the performance […]

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 […]

Weekend Warrior

Saturday. Guess how  my weekend started… Yep…that’s right…kids fighting… I still haven’t figured out what there was to fight about on an awesome morning like Saturday was, but apparently it was all over how many days it was till Christmas… Can we just admire how cute this little snowman is?? Also…I should cross out days and put sleeps. Wes doesn’t quite grasp how days till something is. So we count the sleeps. ….back to the fighting… I finally had enough and just locked myself in the office and caught up on the latest episode of Reign. Have you watched it […]

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 […]
