Freedom

I love the stage of life I’m in with my kids.

Don’t get me wrong – part of me itches to have a baby every time I hold one in my arms (or spot one around town). But with a 7 year old, and two 3 1/2 year olds, life is so much easier than it used to be.

There’s a bit of freedom now. Everyone’s potty trained, everyone can at least partially dress themselves, they play independently (at times, anyway!)…

And I can now bring small handbags with me when I leave the house – no more diapers, wipes, toys, etc. to pack inside.

But they’re not allowed to get any older. I’m freezing time right now while my oldest still thinks it’s cool to hang out with me, and my youngest have yet to start school.

The thing is that we don’t want it to LOOK like we need any help. That’s where Per-fekt Skin Perfection Gel comes in. Not only is it sweat… [Continue Reading]

    Natural Beauties
  • Ok, I’m about to be real. And. I. mean. REAL. It’s totally T.M.I. So if you don’t like hearing about gross women’s topics, then stop reading now. But come on ladies, you’ll understand…I feel bloated, crampy and uncomfortable {you know why}. It feels just as fabulous as it sounds. Some months are better than others but this… [Continue Reading]

    What’s up Fellas
  • I really, really, really like birthdays. What could be more fun than a day set aside to celebrate someone? And I make no exception for my own birthday – it’s a great excuse to see friends, relax a bit, and do some favorite things. I’m turning 37 today. Now, the number itself has never bothered… [Continue Reading]

    Oh Happy Day
  • I think all Minnesotans get to a certain point where they are just done with winter. Sure, there are snowmobiling lovers and ice fishing fanatics galore to be found around here, but once it’s officially spring, I think we can all agree that it should actually feel like spring. I’ve decided that I’m going to… [Continue Reading]
