Did anyone else do a countdown this year?!?! Just me?!?! No, I'm not crazy - I realize January 2020 is still four solid months out. But I'm not waiting 4 months to hit some goals and finish 2019 strong. And neither should any other parents out there. The day after Labor Day is the first… Continue reading Happy New Year Moms!
I remember the first time I competed against someone and won. My older sister - by 18 months - was learning her multiplication facts. I was two years behind her in school, but wanted to do whatever she was doing. My dad was in our room holding the flash cards. 3 x 4? 12!!!

The reason you push or protect your children from going through… Continue reading We’re Not Raising Quitters
I was recently attacked on social media by a girl I hardly know. She had tagged me in a random post about how she didn't like that her friends promoted businesses on social media. (Let's not get into the fact that she's constantly posting boob pics to promote her "fitness" business. Also insert eye roll… Continue reading Let it all Hang Out
I had a blog post all written about our home-buying process we recently went through.
