Ok, so I know there are other adventurous moms out there who decided it would be fun to have kids back to back, such as myself. Having 3 kids in 3 years has definitely been an adventure, but not always a fun one. For example, when I leave the house. Leaving the house is literally […]
One of my all-time favorite movies is You’ve Got Mail. In the film, Joe Fox tells Shopgirl in an email, “Don’t you love New York in the fall? It makes me want to buy school supplies. I would send you a bouquet of newly-sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address.” There’s no getting over […]
The Dread Since I gave birth to my little girl in 2014, I’ve felt nothing but dread when summer arrives. It’s not because of the New Mexico heat, not because I have to buy a new summer wardrobe (my size is always fluctuating). I hate it because I have to wear a swimsuit. I go […]
Being pregnant for the first time and preparing for your first baby is full of surprises! Who knew your breasts could get this big in such a short time?!

I try to be as minimal as possible when it comes to “stuff.” I’m not great at it, but living in a small home really helps curb your shopping/accumulation appetite. When the question, “Where will I put this?” is always coming to mind, you have to really consider whether or not you love it or […]
Easter has always been one of my favorite holidays. When I was younger my parents would hide our Easter baskets around the house and we would have to hunt for them. I can remember being so upset one year because I could not find my basket for the life of me. My parents had been […]
House plants can transform a space. Look at any home décor magazine and you’re sure to see a few plants in each spread. I’ve always had orchids in our home but the last 8 months saw a sudden demise for all of them (a few were over 7 years old and three were the grown […]
Keeping up with trends is like keeping up with the Joneses. I can’t stand it. Don’t get me wrong, there are trends out there that I like. But once I start liking a trendy product, there is always something new…and, more often than not, when I find some new trend I like…I find out, it’s not a […]
“What do you want for Christmas?” This is the question I ask my husband over and over again trying to figure out what in the world to get my guy for December 25th. I enjoy gift giving, especially when it’s a surprise! Socks and underwear are a given, but I try to choose one thing each […]
5 Things to Do in the 505 in December. The holidays are one of my very favorite times of the year. I love the Christmas music, the bite of chill in the air, the ridiculously good treats that people make that does nothing to help your exercise goals. In the spirit of holiday sharing, I […]
