This afternoon while I was on a lunch break run around the lake near my house, I had some time to reflect on some personal things that have been going on over the past few weeks. I was out enjoying the beautiful 80 degree day with just enough clouds in the sky and wind at… Continue reading It’s Not Easy For Anyone
I realized that I haven’t been really great this time around talking much about what’s been going on with Baby #5. Let me tell you, being pregnant while you are taking care of four other little humans can make life really interesting. I’ll give you a little insight into what this pregnancy has been like… Continue reading Baby #5 Pregnancy Update!
I, along with many other women I (I assume), often feel pulled in so many directions on a daily basis that something needs to give. I work a full time stressful job, have four kids, am pushing 23 week pregnant with baby #5, own my own business, and still have to keep the house in… Continue reading The Importance of Self-Care
I was feeling really good at about 6 months postpartum when my weight was lower than my pre-baby weight, but something wasn’t really sitting right with me. Actually, many things weren’t sitting right….or the same way they used to.

I start getting pretty tired around 7pm and, with the encouragement of my husband, try to get in bed as soon as the kids are in bed. Seems like a good… Continue reading I Am NEVER Going To Sleep Again!
This month is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and yet another reason for me to shout from the rooftops that beauty is NOT a reason to expose yourself to toxins or chemicals linked to cancer, hormone disruption, and more. The European Union has banned 1400 of the chemicals scientifically linked to these issues, but the US remains… Continue reading October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Hello! I just wanted to give a quick 34 week pregnancy update! I had my appointment this morning, and all is well.
