Personal: Me?Well I've been feeling amazing, especially since the tiny house stay. I started doing Crossfit a couple of weeks ago on top of hiring my nutrition coach over … Continue reading Updates!
I didn't think there would be a part three to this post, but here we are. A couple of days before the final divorce hearing, my ex came back to me asking for another chance. If I'm being honest, it would have probably been our firth or sixth "try again" at this point? His answer … Continue reading Boundaries Pt. III
When I was about to have my first, the thought of being a stay at home mom was awful. But the thought of being a full-time working mom was awful too. I knew both "full-time" roles weren't for me - I wanted to do both part-time. With my first, I went back to work at … Continue reading Life As A Stay At Home Mom.
So I didn't get my groceries for the month under $450 as intended. My groceries came out to $452, which honestly I'm fine with. I will say I did focus on cooking more and also thought twice, if not three times on many purchases. If anything, had I not done the no spend month, I … Continue reading No Spend 2021 Recap.
The new documentary film Less is Now, is finally out on Netflix. If you would have told me that I'd be outside for a hike in January, I would have laughed in your face.

Sleepless Nights/ Broken Sleep. There are nights where I have broken sleep or sleep maybe four hours total. My son … Continue reading The Things No On Tells You.
I feel like a broken record, but I fell off my night time routine, yet again. Mainly because the kiddos have been going to bed after 8, but now that it's getting darker earlier, it has made a difference. They are typically now in bed by 7:45pm the latest. In the past few days, I … Continue reading August Favorites.
While I do miss work dearly, I am trying to embrace a more "simpler" lifestyle.We've been doing more outdoor activities with the kids such as going to different state parks for swimming and hiking.Now that they are a bit older, they can manage walking longer distances.On one hike, my two "oldest" lasted over an hour.It … Continue reading Exploring Nature.
We've been spending a lot of time at that local "field." I honestly don't know we haven't before.It's only a two minute drive away. There's a pond, a soccer area and picnic benches. We've had meals there, played with kites and even just thrown rocks into the pond.They have a small "beach" area, that is … Continue reading Enjoying Simple Things.
