Silly Summer Fun!

Isabella looks forward to summer break each year, not because of school being out but because we have so much fun outside. I’ve been blessed with a creative child that loves to get her hands dirty by turning nothing into something.

Each week during the summer we will tackle a new DIY project! This week homemade chalk. Continue reading “Silly Summer Fun!”

Juice Talk with Isabella

With school being out for the summer, Isabella will be spending her days at the YMCA Summer Camp. I love this camp because they are outdoors playing ALL day long. Raising kids that enjoy the outdoors is a big deal for us. Poor kid is absolutely exhausted in the mornings though, so I’ve been working with her on how to wake herself up in the mornings and not be such a Grumpy Gus.

It’s hard to think that we are halfway through 2017! Memorial Weekend is gone and we are sailing right into the summer season. We spend a lot of time in the water during these hot summer days, and we have no plans of changing that tradition with a new baby.

We have made our list of essential baby needs to enjoy our summer on the water, while still keeping everyone safe and happy Continue reading “Beach/Pool Day Essentials for Baby”

Be a Mom That Works Out.

Being a busy mom can easily become an excuse to cut workouts out of your routine. I however strongly encourage you to stick with it. Exercise has been linked to fighting everything from cancer to diabetes. I’m a full-time mommy and event manager that commutes over an hour one way, but have found that making my workouts a priority is a must for my attitude and well-being. I have found that I am setting a better example for my girls by being committed to my health and wellness. 

You don’t have to spend hours in the gym, you truly don’t have time for that. Supersetting my workouts has become the most successful tactic for me. Supersetting is when you switch back and forth between two different exercises. My muscles react better and I get through my workouts more quickly.

I am happy to share with you some go to plans for me. Continue reading “Be a Mom That Works Out.”

Juice Talk with Isabella

This week has been such a fun and busy week for Isabella! She’s had parties, celebration days, award assemblies and field day. While participating in field day activities, her poor little hand got run over by a scooter. The injury made her cry and some of the other students laughed at her. While the thought of someone laughing at her boiled my blood, I decided to use that experience as a teachable moment.

This week on Juice Talk with Isabella: How to deal with bullies Continue reading “Juice Talk with Isabella”

Breastfeeding is hard!

Hadley is now 10 months old, how did that even happen!? I have been back to work for 7 months and I am so proud of Hadley and I for sticking with our breastfeeding journey.

I will be honest its the hardest journey I’ve been through, it’s so time-consuming, stressful at times and can be very lonely. I’m blessed to work for a company that fully supports my decision to breastfeed and they don’t question my breaks to pump. By trial and error, I’ve learned a few tips that have made the journey a little more enjoyable. Continue reading “Breastfeeding is hard!”
