To Change…

Change. I am a creature of habit. I get emotionally attached. I don’t like surprises. Having a routine doesn’t bore me, I actually prefer it. I am in my comfort zone. Have been for awhile. All of which makes change a very difficult process. But, after literally years (told ya, comfort zone) of contemplating, agonizing, … Continue reading

My Rock Star

Aniston Paige; Rock Star. My littlest girl is nearly 16months old. Ahhhh! I know it’s cliche, but man time flies…when your going non-stop chasing after the most rambunctious mini-rock star known to man. It has been so much fun watching Aniston grow, and realizing how completely different our two girls actually are. Complete opposites. I’ve … Continue reading

He Is Worth It

I recently made a statement without realizing it might be controversial. Referring to the age-old saying that being a Mom is the hardest job in the world, I suggested that maybe, just maybe, being a good wife was actually the toughest. Notice that I didn’t simply say ‘being a wife’, I said ‘being a good wife.’ … Continue reading

My Heart Dances

When Harper was in the NICU, I prayed many prayers. Some general, ‘Lord, please save my baby!’ And some more specific, ‘Lord, I have dreamed of watching this tiny girl dance, of dressing her in sequins and tutus. Please strengthen her lungs. Please heal the hole in her heart. I just want to watch my … Continue reading

Not Your Momma’s Booty

Before I explain the lighthearted title of this post, I need to address something weighing quite heavy on my heart. Last night, North Texas suffered yet another tragedy. We were hit by 10 tornadoes and the towns of Grandbury and Cleburne suffered major loss, including 6 confirmed deaths, over 100 people injured, and 7 people … Continue reading

Mother’s Day & A Workout I Hate (Love)

Happy late Mother’s Day to all the Momma’s! I hope it was peaceful and restful, because I know how rare and appreciated days like that are. My Mother’s Day was going beautifully until it came to a crashing halt…literally. And the crash was my Happy Face slamming her happy face into the concrete walkway at … Continue reading

Can You Teach A Heart To Be Tender

Underdog: a person in adversity. The girl with the tattoos and piercings who is in threat of loosing her job based on her appearance… The girl fresh out of college, getting dirty looks from the executive in the BMW who she parks beside in the parking garage (how dare she park that thing next to … Continue reading

10 Unexpected Benefits of Fitness

Bikinis. Shorts. Sundresses. – Just a few of the typical reasons women often give for working out. “It’s bikini season, I better get to the gym.“- said by me, at some point, I’m sure of it. I’m not going to lie, there was a time in my life, about 10 years ago that I would … Continue reading

Is That Bag Big Enough?!

I get this all the time. Mostly from men. And to answer the question, once and for all… Well yes, thank you, it is. I’m a Mom. I have to be prepared. And I have personally found it easier to carry one extra large bag, rather than a purse plus a diaper bag. I also … Continue reading

The Happiest Place on Earth

***Disclaimer: This post contains an obsessive amount of photos, provides more information than you probably care to hear, and is dripping with ooey-gooey sappiness.  This past week, my husband and I were blessed with the opportunity to take our little ‘Princess” to The Happiest Place on Earth, Disney World. Although I typically steer clear from … Continue reading
