We got a new table and chair set after a couple of chairs had broken from our kitchen set. It was from Pat's grandmother and I believe it was almost 50 years old. It's definitely served it's purpose. During quarantine, the kitchen table had become the hot spot for a million activities, including homeschooling.It was … Continue reading New Addition.
I haven't updated on a typical week in my life since my "mom" one in 2018. Initially, I wasn't going to post this with all the chaos going on, but I figured having some normalcy helps. But also, come September, once my oldest starts kindergarten, routines will definitely change. With [current] new schedules, routines and such, … Continue reading Week In My Life.
This week I experienced burnout; again. I experienced burnout last September going through all the motions with my husband. This time, it was between being down, lack of sleep, over caffeinating and working out too hard when I shouldn't have. Yes even I, the fitness instructor, am human.

Just as with most things in life, decluttering is NOT a destination, it's a journey. Just because you declutter once, doesn't mean that is the end. You have to continue on with the process and be more mindful of the items that enter your home. Even though I had decluttered the kitchen earlier this year, … Continue reading Decluttering for the Holidays
I had all intentions for this past weekend to be super productive, but life happened. I got really sick late afternoon on Friday and it just spilled into the weekend. I even ended up not working out for four days straight; that is something that has not happened since I was about a month postpartum … Continue reading Week Recap.

Here’s what my current solo nighttime routine looks like with three kids: 6:00: Clean the kitchen up post dinner and give the kids some milk.At this moment, the kids do their own thing. … Continue reading Nighttime Routine [w/ 3 Kids]
I will admit I did buy a few "extra" things aside from Halloween items for next year and a few Christmas items for my kiddos. Technically, it wasn't November 4th yet, so I'm off the hook. 😉 I have been looking for new throw pillows for the bed for quite sometime. Naturally, when I spotted … Continue reading Waiting It Out.
