In love with yellow…

Generally speaking yellow is not my color…..if I had to rate colors, the lowest on my totem pole is orange and a hair above orange is yellow. I’m more of a blue person – lots of blue in my house, lots of blue in my closet. Anyway, this spring I tried a peasant top (see pic at the bottom that I posted this past spring) …

Home of the Free and the Brave…

Happy 4th of July, everyone! I love this holiday – no fancy prep or gifts required…just friends/fam, bbqs, fireworks, fireflies, and warm weather. (and for us, lot’s of baseball…and water balloons, haha!) My fam and I have SO much fun every year on this holiday, and generally speaking it requires no real planning…everyone goes with the flow, everyone’s invited everywhere, everyone contributes, and the kids …

TBT Part 3 – Free as F*ck – in my country and in how I live.

So digging a little deeper this week with our Throw Back Thursday exercises to learn more about one another, let’s share some of our personal theories, mottos, or beliefs. And no worries…there’s always an option to go serious or keep it light. As usual, I’ll give an example of each and please feel free to share something about yourself 😉 Now what to do first…serious …

#TreadLift (to kick your a**) #ProsperityParty (to sooth your soul)

I usually dedicate Wednesdays to workouts BUT this week I have a double feature for you…..something for our physical health and our mental health! First, TreadLift… Summer is amazing for so many reasons, such as lazy mornings! The kids are up later and sleeping in past 9 am. We lay around in pajamas til late morning making pancakes – no rushing, no obligations…it’s great. HOWEVER, …

Find Your Inner Animal ; )

Getting ready to post about a couple of my favorite new things, when I realized that they were both animal related – Owls and Bears! This then led me to taking a test to see what my inner animal was. The result made me giggle with surprise…although maybe I just don’t know enough about this animal’s personality. Either way, I’ve seen these fascinating creatures up …

Start the Week with Skincare

I didn’t realize how many different skincare products I use/like until I sat down to do this post, but it’s a lot, haha! As I’ve mentioned before I get restless with skincare and makeup products, and like trying new things! There always seems to be a new friend selling something that I’m happy to try, or I pick up random things along the way when …

Teach Them Young…#LOVEMORE

I’m wearing one of my favorite shirts in this picture. It says “love more,” by one of my favorite brands, Spiritual Gangster. I mean, what greater message is there really!? Who doesn’t want to be loved more? Bullies start young, mean behavior starts young, so let’s teach our kids young – more love, more acceptance, more communication, more eye contact. When my kids come to …
