Back-to-School Style & GIVEAWAY

I can’t think of back-to-school time without thinking of this quote from the movie Billy Madison: “Back to school! Back to school, to prove to Dad that I’m not a fool! I got my lunch packed up, my boots tied tight, I hope I don’t get in a fight! ...more

I’m Going To Own 2nd Grade. Like A Mom On A Mission.

When you woke up and sent your kid to the first day of Kindergarten did you think, “Wow, life is gonna be so easy now that my kids are going to school!” They will get out of the house and be occupied for the entire day while I’m super productive and get millions of things done.

A Blur

We have been so extremely busy this summer that we have barely enjoyed our pool. From the RV trip to speaking in San Diego…and now to Portland, Oregon tomorrow…it’s one big travel fest over here. I’m not complaining…because it’s definitely been adventurous, but I’m ready to take a break from the crazy and let life SLOW DOWN a little ....more
