You are a Super Hero

In today’s world, it’s so easy to lose sight of who you really are, to forget what you really believe in and to remember to stand up for what’s right. I know I struggle daily with giving myself some credit. I have to remind myself that it’s ok not to be perfect. That I’m not a failure because I had to miss my daughter’s school event because I had an important deadline at work.I tell myself often, “You are good enough, keep it up.”

I learned early in my role as an employee, mommy, and wife, that some “me” time was imperative if I was going to be successful.  Continue reading “You are a Super Hero”

Juice Talk with Isabella 

Thursday’s are my favorite because Isabella and I have coffee dates at our local coffee shop before making our way to dance class.

During our last date we got to talking about the umbilical hernia repair surgery I’m having in a few weeks, which led to questions about insurance and medical bills.

This week on juice Talk with Isabella: Medical Bills

You mean to tell me that you have to pay that much money for surgery? What do they really do with all that money? 

I think you should just have to pay a little bit. Like is you have $25, then you only pay that, but if you have like $100, then you pay that.

Juice Talk with Isabella

My six year old is without a doubt one of the smartest people I know. We constantly are having real talks about life and she always has the best advice. 

Each week Isabella will share some answers and explanations to many of life’s pressing questions. 

This week on Juice Talk with Isabella: Taxes

Taxes are very silly and I don’t think I want to do that. Doesn’t President Trump live in the White House and have airplanes? It doesn’t make sense that he would need more money. 

Wait a minute, so if something says it’s $5.00 then it’s actually like $5 and some change!? That is too confusing. Why don’t they just list the real price so then I know how much monies I need. 




Surviving sports season with a baby. 

Spring is my favorite time of year for so many reasons. Patio sitting, grilling, flowers blooming, bourbon on ice and the sports season starts.

In years past I only needed to bring my chair and BKR bottle as a spectator to these games.

My oh, my have things changed for this season. Having a 9-month-old very active on the go little one has forced me to create a much stronger game plan for this season. I decided a ‘survival tote‘ was a necessity to keep myself, Hadley and any other spectator at bay during games. Continue reading “Surviving sports season with a baby. “
