Do you have a wine cabinet that doesn’t get used? I know that’s a ridiculous question. My friends would probably laugh at that question or look at me like I’ve gone insane. But yes, we actually had a wine cabinet that was sitting there…empty…true story.
Wait…what?! Can we do that?
When my friend, Kristina, recently suggested we do a spa day during the week, immediately the excitement kicked in, then soon after the guilt followed. Can I part with my sweet little girl and get her a sitter for the day? Since I’m not working, should I spend the money to pamper myself? What about all the laundry that never ends…all the “mom responsibilities” we have on our plate?
When you first become pregnant, most of us started with a blank/empty room and we were so excited to get our first baby blanket, onesies, and first baby rattle. Then you finally get to fill the room with the actual crib and changing table! Before you know it, you have so much baby crap that it becomes overwhelming!

I love new beginnings! The chance to start from scratch, make something your own, take in all the possibilities that lie ahead.
If you would have told me at the beginning of 2016 that in 2017 I would be a stay-a-home Mom, I would be starting my first blog and Donald Trump would be president. I probably would have laughed and bet you beer if any one these events actually came true. Well, here we are today…cheers! This proves to me that there are absolutely no limit to the possibilities the year can bring. Continue reading “New Beginnings” »
Some day’s I feel a little like superwoman, so on top of things and knocking this Mom/Wife thing out of the park. Today…was NOT one of those days.
It has been 138 days since I became a stay at home Mom and it has officially happened. That day I was trying to avoid. I’m actually surprised it didn’t happen sooner. Continue reading “Morning Routine Fiasco” »
