1.) Lose weight/exercise

4.) Spend more time with family

5.) Stop over-commi...

 Today's blog is rather sappy. It's National Adoption Month and we are less than 48 hours away from my baby boy's 6th birthday! Every year at this time I cannot help but remember the memories and fears that were going through my mind during this time. We were impatient...

So anyone who knows me knows I cannot stand to waste things. Eric says I'm a hoarder, I saw I'm thrifty and sentimental. Po-tay-to - Po-tot-to, right? Some people may throw things out when they are done with it but I try my darndest to find a way to upcycle and make it...

It's hard to believe that 18 years ago today, the USA as we knew it, changed. On this day our world was attacked by terrorists and two of the most well known buildings in our country were leveled, the Pentagon was compromised and if not for the brave men and women who...

So I took a few weeks off of blogging to unwind after an amazing but busy few weeks! We went to the beach twice and I literally flew from the beach to Las Vegas to compete in the Mrs. Earth pageant. I got home at 10PM on a Monday night and was up at 5:30 getting ready...

It's July! Not only is it my birthday month but it's also Plastic Free July! Have you ever thought about how many disposable plastics you use every single day, week, and month?! What if you replaced a one single use plastic every day with something reusable? 

It's Plast...

"I'm so  tired" or "I've had a long day" and how about, "I'll do it tomorrow". Yep, there are so many excuses to why you should not exercise but how about all the reasons you should? What if you said, "You know, I'm right in line for diabetes so I think I'll go walk to...

It's finally summer! The days are long, the nights are full of lightening bugs and pulling the wagon around the block and, of course, vacation!!! I am so excited to take my boys to the beach next week with my family and then again with Eric's family. One thing I always...

It's Summer!!! For most of us this also means the kids are out of school too! Teachers, I just wanted to say, "Bless your hearts" I know you've earned your summer break! 

For those of you getting ready for a fun week at the beach, on the lake, by the pool, or having a B...
