Before kids, I was in great shape. I loved my body…seriously, loved it! Fast forward 6 years and 3 kids…now I don’t even recognize myself in the mirror.

Seeing myself in the pictures was enough for me to want to change. I made up my mind…I am going to get fit! (more…)
Tuesday afternoon my husband asked me “You want to drive to Florida and spend Easter with my dad?” My response, “sure”! I had off from work for Spring Break, so why not!

When you make your own DIY cleaning products you control what ingredients you use and avoid the danger which sold preparations pose.

Car Upholstery Cleaner
You need three main ingredients which are cheap and easy to find to make this cleaner: Borax, soap and water. If you prefer you can add lavender essential oil to make the cleaner smell nicer.

Use this cleaning product to scrub the upholstery of your car and it will be as clean as new. (more…)

I have been wanting a fanny pack for a while. Stop laughing and listen up! Having 3 kids ages 5 and under is not easy, especially when you are out and about.

I can’t wait until the spring…going to rock my fanny pack at the amusement park all season long! We are also heading to Disney in November and I plan to wear this fanny pack the whole time! (more…)
