The volume that things change before, after, and during kids is extraordinary. That is why I think it’s important not to judge someone when you don’t know their situation. Of course, you never know how you would truly handle situations until you go through them.

I’m sharing the easiest way to get rid of garbage odors with Zep Garbage Odor Eliminator as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. #ZepSocialstars

Here in the wonderful Midwest, the last week has finally started to feel like spring. It gets me in the mood to open the windows, get some fresh air in the house, and start deep cleaning. I have been organizing closets, going through boxes that have been stashed since we moved (shhh, that was over 3 years ago), and trying to get rid of things that haven’t been used in years.

Sometimes my husband tells me I am ‘too nice’ or ‘too trusting’ and he could be right. I like to give people the benefit of the doubt typically. I have a hard time understanding how people take advantage of others so often. How some people can goes as far as swiping your whole identity and causing endless problems. I just don’t get it.

When I was pregnant with my first born, I remember reading countless books and articles about being a mom. Of course, it was hard to really understand any of it until I went through the situations firsthand. When the kids said their first words and started repeating everything we said, I started to connect with the importance of leading by example.

I am being provided with a race entry, however I already signed up for this race and all opinions are my own. #HairbandsAndHeadbands

As my running buddy and I started the year, we had a goal of running a dozen 5K races in 2015, approximately one a month. With the cold weather and busy schedules, we have yet to start that goal. However, we have already registered for 5, with more on our radar as we work them in this spring & summer.

At least once a month I try to get out and go shopping with my mom. Most of the time the kids and my dad come along. Then my dad takes the boys to the play areas so we can shop with a little more ease than usual (and grandpa gets his time with the boys). It’s nice to have that time with my mom. And for the last year or so, I have been slowly trying to expand my accessories and clothing options.
