Monday’s Mission: More Than Survive

First of all…I have to wish a happy birthday to my much better half. Today marks the 16th birthday that I have shared with him. And in all honesty, the older this man gets, the more deeply I fall in love with him. I know, I know. Life isn’t fair. But why do men get … Continue reading

Monday’s Mission: Not So Transparent

Ever wonder what I’m thinking? Feeling? Just look at me. I have the inability to hide my feelings and emotions. I lack a filter. I am beyond transparent. So if I seem happy, that’s because I am! The down side to that is that when I’m not happy, it too is blaringly obvious. Good? Bad? … Continue reading

Monday’s Mission with a Twist of Confession

Confession: I use the word ‘mess’ ALOT! Too often actually. “Harper, lets go clean your messy room.” “Mommy’s closet is a hot mess!” “Baby, please don’t make a mess.” So much as a matter of fact that my toddler has started repeating it. “Mommy, Sister made a mess.” Monday’s Mission? Enough already! The last thing … Continue reading

Monday’s Mission & An Update

T minus 3 days until I depart on a much anticipated cruise with girlfriends. Yes, I am excited! But I am also, anxious, nervous, sad, happy, thankful, and overwhelmed. This will be the longest amount of time I have ever left Harper and the very first time to leave my sweet little Aniston. They will … Continue reading

Monday’s Mission: “You Are Strong”

“You look so pretty.” “You are beauuutiful!” –Things my two year old hears daily…multiple times a day if I’m being completely honest. “You are so strong!”- This, she heard for the first time very recently. I find it important to remind my girls of their beauty, both internal and external, because soon enough they will … Continue reading

Monday’s Mission: Be Thankful

I can’t begin to tell you how many times I have stepped in to my ‘walk-in’ closet and declared that I have absolutely nothing to wear. Ridiculous. Trivial. Selfish. I recieved a swift kick in the you-know-what yesterday morning while listening to our Sunday School leader describe his experiences on his most recent mission trip … Continue reading

Monday’s Mission: 3 Minute Plank

I’ve recently been inspired by another Momma over at to complete a Plank-A-Day. This Momma is fit and fierce. She is holding her planks well over three minutes wheras my personal best has been 2:31.3. Proof.                   So my newest mission: Plank. Plank. Plank. Until I too … Continue reading

Monday’s Mission: Detox

You know what they say about paybacks… If today’s workout was any indication of how mistreated my body feels after this weekend, I’ve got a lot of making up to do. To say I over indulged would be an understatement. The scale says that I consumed right at 2lbs of sugar in the past 72 … Continue reading

Monday’s Mission: STRONG

I want to be STRONG. It is the new skinny, you know??? I love that saying, “Skinny girls look good in clothes. Fit girls look good…” You get the point. My mission on this Monday is to push myself physically. I have set a goal to be able to squat for one set of twelve … Continue reading

Monday’s Mission: More Tea Parties

Move. Move. Move. Go. Go. Go. No time to slow-down… So is the life of every working Mom, of every Mom for that matter. It’s easy to get caught up in the “need to’s” (need to do the laundry, need to vacuum the floors…) which as it turns out, aren’t really need to’s after-all. What is … Continue reading
