Let’s Get Social: Workout for Friends

Happy Friday to YOU!!! Oh my gosh it has been a minute since I have blogged and I have to admit, I have missed it a little bit 🙂 I have been a little busy lately and focusing more than ever on really being present to what is right in front of me and thankfully, what has been right in front of me lately has not been my computer screen 😉 More on that later! Today I want to talk about workout out with friends and using our friendships to keep each other motivated. My aunt sent me a pretty funny group chap with herself and her girlfriends, talking about...

Kick Back & Relax: Your Health Depends On It

Hi!! How the heck is everyone? With how busy we all can get, I have been reminded the importance of taking even just 5 minutes a day to let myself relax and center myself. I will literally go crazy if I don’t 😉 CRAZY I tell you!! Trying to find a balance with everything we all have going on in our lives can be tough, but struggling through and not letting your mind and body rest at all is actually really bad for you. Let’s talk about kicking back and relaxing a little bit! Working long hours, looking after a family, maintaining a social life, hobbies, exercise and other commitments...

Good Morning and happy Monday to you all! I put together a little health post for today about our mental health, and how we can help our mind stay short with some simple activities that many of you probably already do 🙂 So it turns out, pregnancy brain IS a thing and so is “new mommy brain”.

There are a few things that I try to keep consistent in my daily life, to help keep my mind going and stay on somewhat...

Weekly Goodness:: Take 52

Good Morning! How the heck is everyone?!? WOAH this week has been crazy and thankfully gone by SO quickly. This week I was back to work full time and JoMarie started daycare full time. UGH you guys it’s been so hard and I know many of you momma’s can relate. I know it will get easier, but right now it’s just killing me being away from her for so long. I’ve just stopped doing my mascara until I get to work. FOR THE LOVE 😉 Loving this little girl so much is emotional stuff I tell ya! On the bright side of it all, JoMarie is doing so great at...

JoMarie’s First Valentines Day

I LOVE Valentine’s Day and I always have! Long before I had a Valentine of my own or before I got to celebrate Jo’s first Valentines Day with her, I have just always loved this Holiday. My Mother is 100% to blame 😉 She always went over and beyond on both Valentine’s Day and Easter with making my day so special each year! I remember feeling so loved and excited to wake up on these Holiday’s and search for my Easter basket or find a cute little something for me on the kitchen table the morning of V-day. This has 100% rubbed off on me as there is nothing I...

Mud Room Updates

Well Good Evening!! I hope you are doing well 🙂 I have been a little MIA on the blog lately and I think that is just my new reality and I’m perfectly okay with that 🙂 I’m making the most out of my last days at home with JoMarie so my posts are few and far between but thank you for still stopping by for the Goodness I do share!! When Jo was 2 weeks old, my Mom came to stay with us for a week to help out and spend some time with us and it was SO GREAT!! Nick and I loved having her.  During that time, Nick...

Hopefully, you’re still smashing your health goals, but even the most motivated amongst us will probably be feeling the strain at this point. Keeping up a healthy lifestyle demands dedication, and there are times...

Baby Update:: 2 Months

Good Morning! I cannot believe we have a 2 month old already! I thought it was a good time to do a little blog update on how things are going 🙂 Life as a new mommy has been such an adventure and I really think I was put here to be JoMarie’s momma and love her with everything I have. When I was pregnant I would constantly think how things would be once our daughter was here with us. The reality is 20 times better than I ever imagined during those 9 months of carrying this sweet girl in my belly. Maternity leave is going great and I literally get sick...
