The harshness of reality and the journey to change

I’ve had a few people ask me if I was still writing for this blog. I was a little shocked because I didn’t think anyone actually read this blog. I responded with yes of course! BUT (there’s always a but) I’ve been struggling emotionally and with my words. As anyone who has had a baby, […]

Fan the Flames/Burn Out

Tiffany started attending a Pilates class that her work offers back in June in hopes of giving herself that “time to ourselves” that we all moms, women, people in general fail to give ourselves. After one of the classes, she reached out to the Pilates instructor, Hayley Milks, to thank her for the classes and […]

Just Another Manic Monday

I’m a Mommy to 3 amazing little boys and I wouldn’t be able to have my organized chaos in the mornings if it weren’t for their help and my strict routine. Try and keep up as I walk, or run, you through my morning. I wake up at 6:20 every morning and get dressed in […]

Music heals the soul

Music for me is life.  It lifts my spirits, it connects me with people and helps me get through my work days. When my sister and I were little we didn’t get along.  We were typical sisters who fought all the time.  I was quiet, she was loud. I was reserved, she was crazy. I […]

The Struggle Bus

I think about blog posts all the time. I think about all the things I want to say. I’ve opened the page and I’ve closed the page. I’ve started posts and I’ve deleted them. At the end of every day I question it all. I question will people really read them? I question if they […]

No More Netflix and Chill

A month ago this past Monday I returned to work. I was fortunate enough to take 11 weeks off of work to be with Bellatrix. So much happened in those 11 weeks that I wouldn’t even know where to begin. Bellatrix was born right before the holidays. It was only days before Thanksgiving that she […]

Guess who’s back!!

WE’RE BACK! Happy New Year! We know it’s been awhile and we apologize, but as some of you know Tiffany and I have had quite the busy last few months. Holidays came and went and oh yea, we had babies! We wanted to be able to soak up all of our time with our babies […]

Love and a Pregnancy Scare

I had all these ideas for blog posts I wanted to write (which I still will) until Sunday morning happened. I haven’t talked to many people about it because everything was and is fine. In our journey into becoming parents this time around, we had a scare. And maybe my concerns were legitimate or I […]

Friendship in the weirdest place

Every so often I hear people say “you have a lot of best friends”.  There is some truth to that statement but if someone allowed me to explain myself then they would understand that it’s a small truth. Now we all know my sister is my best friend. She’s my ride or die. She’s my […]

When Comfort Trumps Fashion

Before I ever even got pregnant I had this horrible fear about myself and my appearance. My fear was that I wasn’t going to look pregnant, that I would just look fat. You can’t blame me, after all, you hear all these stories about plus size women and how they never get that full “round […]
