Say Hello to Fun Family Fitness and Goodbye to Your Couch with Goji Play 2.0

This is a sponsored post from my partnership with Blue Goji. My Goji Play 2.0 gaming experience, fitness opinions, and fashionable workout gear options are my own. I’m usually pretty religious with working out daily, but the past few months I’ve been far too inconsistent and in a bit of a rut emotionally. (And, I […]

Happiness is ______ {2014-W50} #happinessis

We spent 52 weeks in 2013 celebrating what made us happy, and it WAS a fantastic year. Let’s make 2014 the year where we really truly focus on surrounding ourselves with only joy and happiness all year round, every month, every week, every day. Tell me, what makes you happy? What is it that you […]

Halloween 2014

Halloween 2014 was a success! We’d planned and shopped and it went wonderfully! Baby V wasn’t nearly as afraid as we’d suspected she would be (except of Jeremy, can you believe it? He couldn’t be a pirate because she was afraid!) Turns out, his not being a pirate may have been a blessing in disguise […]

Dressing Up in Costumes from

I’m a compensated ambassador. I AM SO RIDICULOUSLY EXCITED! I haven’t been THIS excited about a Halloween costume in, oh, FOREVER! I love NCIS. I love Abby and Gibbs and DiNozzo and Duckie and McGee and Palmer and GOSH. ALL OF THEM. As soon as I opened the box from and saw my […]

“Birdie Birth Control” – You Don’t Hear That One Every Day

The @#*($&@#($@#*&$ birds are trying to make a nest on our porch again. The second I heard their evil, squawky peeps, I felt as though I had PTSD, and I immediately twitched tourrettes-like. I exploded out of the house, waved my hands like a freakin’ crazy lady and screamed “Get outta here!” My kids came […]

If You Give a Mom a Coffee

It was just a typical morning of waking up, attempting to press the button on the Keurig, only to discover a mess I couldn’t leave alone. From there, it was just like “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie” only it was “If You Give a Mom a Coffee.” If you give a mom a […]

Sexiest Husband Alive

“You and your bionic nose,” he scoffed. “I’m telling you, baby, something is MOLDY in there!” I whined. Every time I opened the fridge, the whiff of mold socked me in the mouth. I was five feet away folding laundry, and my oldest son opened the fridge, and I could still smell it, even from […]

Sanity Lost. Laser Gun of Doom… Free!

We try to go on a walk every day, with Baby Dude riding his bike, and Baby V either in the stroller or the bike trailer. Today was no different, we left even earlier than normal so we could play at the park before we left to pick up the kids. As we rounded the climby thingie, […]

Hell Has a Name, It’s Called “Yesterday”

Admittedly, in the waning days of summer, I let the house go. We were living too much in the moment, so busy with living these last summer days, I figured, once school started, that I’d get all Rambo on the chores and into Full House Cleaning Mode™. That is, until the enormity of the task […]

Hulk Mom Breaks Again – Thank Goodness for Grills

Soooooo, remember how I just said I grill everything? I couldn’t wait to share more fun, grilling posts with you, to include grilling our dinner earlier this week which consisted of grilled chicken patties, chicken nuggets, breaded cod, and fries. SO YUM! The grill really adds a crisp smoky-ness to it, and it’s too delicious, […]
