My story of Pregnancy Loss

It’s not something most people talk about because it’s a pretty painful subject and I think some people don’t know how to respond, but did you know that October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness month? I’m going to share with you some of what I’ve gone through in the past two years with my […]

Boo at the Zoo Brookfield Zoo

Want to take the kids to a not-so-scary Halloween celebration in the Chicagoland area? Look no further than Boo at the Zoo at Brookfield Zoo. The event takes place Saturdays and Sundays October 13-28. I wish I could take my family but our October is pretty crazy and we didn’t plan ahead of time for […]

October Bullet Journal Layout 2018

I love to bullet journal and I want to share more what I’m doing with my journal. This month I’ve decided to be a little creative with my weeks to see what I like and how it works for me. Here’s what I’ve done with my October Bullet Journal layout.     First I do […]

Books I Read in September

September was a heavy reading month for me. Nine Books! 3 of them o n the list are from reading to the kids for school. Four of the books are from a series of books called The Fairy Tale Romance Series by Melanie Dickerson. They are based off of Fairy Tales from the past. Just […]

Chicago Double Decker Tour

Note: We were given passes to review the Chicago Trolley and Double Decker Co. All opinions are my own. Last week my family and I decided to take a family “staycation.” If you don’t know, we live about 30 miles south of Chicago, so to us, we consider Chicago our home. Did you ever realize […]

Songs I live by

Have you ever heard a song and it inspired you to live your life in a different way? I was in the gym last week and heard 2 of the 3 songs that inspire me to live my life differently… to be me. They’re songs I live by. Maybe one of them will inspire you. […]

November Review

I’m a little behind on things around here. I just realized that I didn’t even do an October Review. Is it bad that I don’t really remember much about that month besides Halloween? Looking back at my Bullet Journal I see that my milestones included my three year anniversary with Young Living, that I attended […]

September Review

September was my turn-around month. Yes, I started it off with a back injury, but I decided not to let that stop me. This morning I sat down and did a September Review in order to get ready for October. I started off the month in the ER on Labor Day because of extreme back […]

Let’s Get Personal

I admit, I’ve let blogging take a back seat. I haven’t written anything personal since February. It’s been a pretty busy summer with Travel Baseball, travel for us adults, and just life in general. I can’t believe the summer is almost over. Our school district went back to school yesterday. I still have a little […]

Let Baby Ride in Style with Baby Wheels Orlando

Note: I received my stroller rental for free in exchange for this post. All opinions are my own. As a mom to 5, especially two little ones, one of the first things I think about when I think long days at Disney is a stroller! Not only will I need to transport two babies, but […]
