New Year’s Resolutions 2016

Every year, I pick 10 resolutions to work towards. I usually meet some of them, and some I halfway meet, and some I really don’t make progress on at all. Read more →

Break Time

Holiday season is officially upon us. The turkey has been consumed, the adventures of Black Friday are complete, and the holiday music radio station has officially been added to the radio button memory in my minivan. I love this time of year. There’s so much to do and there are many memories to be made. However, I’m finding this year… Read more →

DIY Pond

For the longest time, my husband has talked about wanting a pond in our yard. A professional pond job is at least $1000, and we are not the types to pay someone to do something in our yard. And when I say we, I have to admit I am not a garden/yard type, whereas my husband loves it. I enjoy… Read more →

The wear of motherhood makes me cringe as I face the stretch marks, the loose skin, and the extra pounds.… Read more →

New Year’s Resolution #1, Check!

One of my New Year’s Resolutions this year was to go to a yoga class (you can see my list of 10 resolutions here). After reading my resolutions, because I also post them on Facebook every year, my co-worker Beth invited me to a hot yoga class. I had heard of hot yoga and was happy that someone was inviting… Read more →

Letting it Go

It’s been a long week. It’s been a hard week. I feel stressed. I feel tired. I feel out-of-balance. I feel defeated. I yearn to lie on the floor of my office, curl up in a ball, and just cry. Oh, and yell. “I can’t do this anymore!” Is this it? Have I decided again, that being a working mom… Read more →

2014 New Years Resolutions

2014 New Year Resolutions Every year for the past 10+ years, I have set 10 resolutions to strive towards.
