CocoLo Sugar Scrubs | Review

      Luxury is not a word I’m accustomed to in this season of life. Heck, JUST taking a shower 2 days in a row is feeling like an accomplishment these days.   Rabbit trail…Recently I was sharing with my husband how accomplished I felt for the day. A workout. A shower. Educating our children. Feeding the dog…and a couple others. When I was done with my announcement he said “feeding the dog is not an accomplishment”. Isn’t that funny?! 1.  It is too!!   2.  It seems like showering should be LESS of an accomplishment feeding the dog.…

  You know I have struggled with laundry over the years! Well, really, I hate laundry. It makes me want to be naked AND I have a 2 month old and a body to show for it!! So that should tell you how much I hate laundry if I’d rather be naked! I’ve made my own laundry soap.

My husband LOVES a more…well, let’s just say,…

PiYo | 10 Reasons You Will Love These Workouts! Beachbody Review

    You may remember my simple stance on fitness.  If not, check it out here. Prior to having babies I had all the time in the world to exercise and did often because I loved it.  I could surf, play tennis, jog, swim or even belong to a gym!! And I did all those thing with joy, not even realizing how much I would covet those moments of peaceful, sweaty, exercise. With 7 children, including an infant and a 17 month old. Even with my triple jogger (es, they make those!)  I’d still have to have 4 children on bikes…

GIVEAWAYS: Ultimate Christmas Gift Guide

      There was a time when I wanted my husband to buy me whatever was in his heart. That time has passed.  I’m sending him a gift guide!! LOL!

They are called Revelry and run $32  I love a good pair…

A Thanksgiving Prayer (From a Mother with an Infant)

A Thanksgiving Prayer (For some reason it came out in a poem! LOL!)   Even if you didn’t get to sleep in, may your energy level be high.  Focus on smells of turkey, not poop because the days are flying by.  Before we know it, we’ll be alone in the bathroom (no fingers peeking under the door) and awaiting our children to come home.  And perhaps one thanksgiving home they will not be, because off in the world they will rome.  When your baby is crying, just breath, shush and bounce. Help us not worry about the state of our…

Be A Better Wife Wednesday |Date Night on the Couch

Life gets BUSY and EXPENSIVE and making time for date nights doesn’t always seem possible, but worse than that, it doesn’t always seem appealing. Tracking down a trustworthy babysitter, finding a night that works and then arranging activities you both like that aren’t going to break the bank is sometimes more than either one of us wants to take on. My husband has a weird schedule too, so it never really works well with other people’s weekend availability. Over the years we’ve perfected our “on the couch” date nights.   The evening unfolds something like this… We feed the children…

Be A Better Mom Monday | A Message for Homeschooling Moms |25 Reasons to be excited you home educate!!

As I scrolled through my FB feed this weekend I noticed many posts from moms in preparation for the new school year. These moms were prepping lunches, laying out new clothes and feeling bittersweet about sending their little ones off to school for another year of education. It’s a mixed bag of feelings when you read the posts, isn’t it? Maybe there is still a tinge of jealousy for these moms who are going to get the day off and have already made their children’s lunch for the day! I know I still had a little, though I’m not proud…

Be A Better Wife Wednesday | Love Letters

  In the middle of the night after several bad dreams, I decided to just get out of bed.   The house was dark and quiet, my 34 week pregnant body ached. I sat down at the computer unsettled and pulled up Ephesians 4 on Bible Gateway.   As a wife and mother, I’ve headed to this chapter many times and tonight was no different.  I was unsettled, restless and anxious. Forcing myself to take my thoughts captive and reminding myself the dreams were not real, I decided to read and pray.     As I began  to read the familiar…
