New Roads

We moved from beautiful San Diego, to dry, almost flat Arizona. A place for many years of my life I vowed I would never move to. Did you know I was born in Mesa? Anyways, Nick and I loved living in San Diego for a few reasons, the weather, the beach, the people, the food, and the family. What we didn’t love. The cost of living. The taxes. The stress. The fact that we will never be able to afford to purchase a home. Or it would take far too long. Also, we didn’t love the idea of raising our kids in some of the areas. So, we…

Why can’t I wake up before the kids, get ready and use some of that time to center myself before the chaos starts? I break. ALL. THE. TIME. I really broke this morning when Nick and I were trying to get the printer fixed upstairs and the boys…

Thank You For Sponsoring!  Working out is the easiest thing to put off for tomorrow which becomes six months down that road we should have been walking or running on.  But it’s the most rewarding thing we can do as moms.  We need the lift of those endorphins while lifting our bums as well!  A few months ago, I got a gym membership but I have only gone a handful of times.  My boys hate the little children’s play center.  There’s also that self conscious thing.  I feel I should be in makeup wearing the coolest…
