Mom trip

October 18, 2017

Oh my gosh, you guys, I just had the most amazing weekend.

I got to go to Branson, MO for an Young Living conference, which was super amazing all in it self. And let me tell you, if you’re looking for a way to grow yourself, connect with other women who have the same #momboss passion that you do, or maybe you need to be inspired to bring that out of you, then this is where you need to be. Words cannot even express how filled up I am after this weekend, and more so just because I was surrounded by so many women who want the same things as me. A healthy, happy family, that I nurture and care for, but also a little piece of my own success that can lead to build up other women in their own journeys. Ugh — gives me goosebumps.


So besides all that amazing-ness, I think Branson is one of the prettiest places I’ve been to. I am used to city living and this was the total opposite and just tugged at my heart strings so badly. The wide open spaces, the tractors, the cute little towns full of connected community. I could just eat it all up.

We got to take this gorgeous tour through the Ozark mountains, seeing old civil war cannons blasted off at sunset, and just reconfirming what a blessing it is to be an American. I was crying like a baby, no joke, the mom cocktail probably didn’t help the emotional state.

And you know, taking a trip like this just really made me appreciate my family. I got to talk to Logan over the phone, which never happens because I’m always with him, and he was telling me joke after joke after joke. It was the cutest thing, and made me hear him totally differently than I normally do. I could hear Holly in the background calling my name, Lucas said that she was so confused because she couldn’t find me, and of course that made the crying on my behalf ensue.

But, getting some time away, in the mountains was enough to clear my head from the fog I’ve been living in. It gave mea moment to restructure my thoughts. Realize what I’m really working for. And just trust that I am on the right path.

So, if you’re walking in a fog, take a mom trip. Even if it’s somewhere close by. Get a girlfriend, pack a bag, and re-implant yourself in those younger years of just living in the moment. It’ll be so worth it!

Wellness Wednesday

October 11, 2017

Let’s talk pre-schooler chores. Now that Logan is big and grown, he is obsessed with helping me do my “work”. Yup. He calls my house cleaning my work. Not sure if I should be proud of that or disappointed. But, that’s not what we’re trying to figure out today. Since he’s so in to all of […]

Wellness Wednesday

I love a good PSL just as much as anybody else. But, there’s a few things about it that I don’t love about the ones that are sold out of the hippest drive through window. #1 -fake pumpkin…I mean come on, can we just open up a can of the real stuff? #2 – the […]

Fall Bucket List Tree

September 28, 2017

It’s hard to think that when I started doing this fall tree, that Logan was just a little guy. He was Holly’s size! At that age he had no clue what we were doing, and honestly neither did I. I was just looking for a way to keep him busy, and thought this could be […]

Pumpkin Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

September 25, 2017

You better believe that I ran right out to the store on the first day of Fall and bought up a handful of canned pumpkin cans. I actually had the intentions of making a pumpkin crumb cake or pumpkin bread. I thought that the kids would love it for breakfast. But, when I showed Logan what […]

Apple Doughnuts — an easy kid snack

September 22, 2017

You know what they say about an apple a day…. Well even though my kids love to eat apples, sometimes it’s fun to jazz them up a little. My current idea of jazzing them up was giving the kids applesauce. I mean, that’s about as jazzy as my life has been these last few months. […]

Wellness Wednesday – Mom brain survival

September 20, 2017

Do you live in a cloud? And I don’t mean like the rainbows and unicorn cloud. I mean like the mom-brain-fog cloud. The one that just takes over the entire day. Clouds up that to-do list. Has you wondering if you’ve even brushed your teeth today. Honestly, I have that thought ALL the time….and can’t […]
