Loving Your Skin with La Roche-Posay


Loving Your Skin with La Roche-Posay

All year long I struggle with dry skin, it isn’t just during winter days for this mama. Since I have recently hoped on the La Roche-Posay wagon, it’s been a thrill! I have tried a lot of different lotions over the years and many don’t stand the test when it comes to my overly sensitive eczema-prone skin. But Lipikar Body Lotion does the trick!

But First, Coffee. {Bulletproof}


But First, Coffee. {Bulletproof}

This perfectly describes each morning for me. But first, Coffee. First I drink the coffee then I do the things. It’s the only vice I have & I enjoy it! Everyone in my home knows that mama loves her coffee! I creep down the stairs before any one else wakes up, and make a nice warm pot of coffee and enjoy it in peace before the chaos begins and our day gets started.

Working & Breastfeeding With Medela


Working & Breastfeeding With Medela

This month marks one full year of being back to work. It’s been a busy year, but it also has been a really successful one. Looking back I of course feared the worst and the mom guilt of leaving Ella everyday scared me. Especially since I was still breastfeeding her! The adjustment went better then I had thought. Everyone smoothly found a routine back to me going to work, Owen at school & Ella starting daycare. It was not easy at first. Going from always being home to help out & be there for Owens school activities! I’ve gotta say though I’m very lucky to have such an amazing job that gives me a little freedom to also be there for my kids. Continue reading “Working & Breastfeeding With Medela”

Family Is Everything


Family Is Everything

As our wedding day approaches, it certainly has Drew & I reminiscing back to those high school days. 2003, when it all began. That first day of Drivers Ed, I was 16 Drew was 18. I somehow got the last seat which just so happened to be right behind Drew. From that moment on he’s been bugging me ever since! Every so often during class he would turn around in his seat and pretend he needed help… To this day he still acts dumb! Continue reading “Family Is Everything”

WOODLOT | Cozy Home

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

Who doesn’t love a nicely lit candle? I LOVE candles in my home! There is nothing more relaxing then a lazy rainy day with low lighting and a flickering light of a burning candle. That is my jam! Many years ago when I would go on my weekly grocery shop, I’d always stop at the Home aisle and pick up a candle or two. My mommy treat! I have learned after going through many candles that there are the ‘good’ burning ones and the ‘nasty’ burning candles. I have stopped buying the ‘nasty’ candles. Only because I’m now hooked on GOOD candles. I notice such a difference in my home when I burn one. The smell, the wick and no soot!
