“Oh for goodness sakes!” This has become my go to phrase of frustration since my children have become observant little elementary schoolers. I don’t know why I keep saying it- it just comes out. But from where?? Where does this come from?? I was thinking about this earlier today…. A lot of expressions we use,… Read More Why do we say these things???
Grocery stores. I’m the worst at planning meals. Probably because the whole “planning” part bores me to tears. I usually wing it when I head to the store. I have my dry erase board on the fridge filled with things I randomly think we need. Blah blah blah. Anyway. The whole topic of grocery shopping… Read More A comparison of shopping carts with the “Quinoa folks”
I am the biggest hypocrite when it comes to Facebook. I’m on it all the time. I have no idea why. It’s a time sucker upper and a bad habit. At most, it’s a distraction from boredom when I actually shouldn’t be bored because there’s things I need to be doing. Make sense? What’s… Read More Newsfeed bs, memes, and things I don’t want to buy….
6:30 am. My phone plays a gentle melody to softly jostle me out of my sleep that only recently has been achieved 20 minutes earlier (due to dog 1 of 3, puking all over our bedroom).

GET ready, parents. It’s coming… Check the title. People with small humans will be able to deduce exactly what I’m referring to….oh yeah. HALLOWEEN. (Insert evil laugh). In a few short weeks your children will be running around in costumes (most of them way over priced and lacking quality), asking strangers for candy. It’s the… Read More Candy, nightmares, and insomnia..
I’m stubborn. It’s really strange actually. I’m quite insecure a lot of the time (courtesy of my persistent nagging anxiety), yet other times I’m overly confident. I have no explanation for this. I think being stubborn is my saving grace. During those times of doubt, there’s always that voice in the back of my head… Read More Chopped. (DIY Hair edition)
It’s been two weeks since I’ve been to the gym due to the constant germs that keep circulating in this household. Today I decided to break out of my funk and finally go. Having taken more than one hiatus in my life from the gym, I was aware that this workout probably wouldn’t be my… Read More Thoughts while on the treadmill, and the race I didn’t realize I was in…
It’s spring break. Due to the weather not being ideal today forcing us mostly indoors, I came up with an idea while eating lunch with the kiddos. As a boredom buster, I thought I would give them mock job interviews for their potential “jobs” that they chose. They also chose the clothing they wanted to… Read More Job interviews…with a 4 and 5 year old.

This is an exaggerated story based on real life events. You’ve decided that this year, will be YOUR year. You plan on getting in the best shape of your life and adopting that healthy lifestyle you’ve conveniently been putting off for so long. For far too long you’ve been procrastinating. It’s time to DO… Read More Group fitness classes…a reality check.
