I’ve had a pretty decent stretch of a few days here. I mean, I did wake up this morning thinking I had the good old ‘Rona BUT it turns out that I just needed a coffee…. oh, let’s be real here, I needed two and I subtly learned my lesson to NOT sleep with the … Continue reading Setting Boundaries. Finally.
Okay. Real talk tonight. We had an interesting day that has opened my eyes and made me realize that we still have some fairly large obstacles ahead. And it scares me. Quick back story: My ex-husband and I haven’t been together for almost 6 years and he hasn’t seen his kids since 2016, nor spoken … Continue reading Little Kids, Big Emotions & How to Cope as a Parent
Well, today was the day I was going to change my life. My alarm was set for 5am, my ‘home workout’ was meticulously planned, I had my non-lululemon outfit planned and ready to go AND I even pinned a new makeup look I was going to try. Oh, and blow dry my hair. It was … Continue reading Easter Weekend: Physical Distancing Edition.
What. the. hell. is. self. love. And better yet, how does one accomplish self love during this?

I miss waking up at 5am to get my son to the arena for an early morning practice and then racing to get my daughter to dance on time and then home to get whoever to where ever. Oh, and the grocery dash. I loved that stuff … Continue reading Mourning the “What Was”and Celebrating the “What Could Be”
Whoa. 2 entries in 2 days. I’m slightly impressing myself. Could this perhaps be the start of a new habit? Eh? Ehhhh? Probs not. Don’t get too excited. My kids have free time from 6 until 8 and this is my way of blocking out the current fighting that’s happening over who has the iPads. … Continue reading Fellow Human Check-In.
Totally being melodramatic right now and blasting ‘I Fall Apart’ by Posty because, my friends… that is exactly what happened today. I will make it crystal clear that I broke my one and only cardinal rule of what-not-to-dos and allowed them screen time first thing in the morning because I simply just didn’t want to. … Continue reading Routine. Or something not-at-all like that.
High five, folks. We just survived the scariest March Break of our entire life! (well, I hope anyway.) I see y’all working hard to keep those kiddos busy, active and meticulously following the social distancing guidelines. Aside from those who are hanging at the park with your friends… you’re real jerks. Is anyone else anticipating … Continue reading March Break 2.0
Eat. Sleep. Rave. Repeat. Eat. Sleep. Rave. Repeat. When I say eat, I obviously mean eat everything and anything you possibly can out of the pantry because someone always needs a snack within 10 minutes of finishing their balanced meal. Sleep?
