How to Be Hip and Modest

How to Be Hip and Modest

As moms, we all want to be beautiful. But sometimes I feel like there is a war between cute/stylish and modest.

It can be depressing to walk into the store and feel like you have to choose one extreme or the other. I was so excited about the podcast episode with Molly from Still Being Molly on Fashion 101

Molly had some incredible advice for dressing stylishly. But they were all things you could do while still being modest. We also recorded a great video too if you missed it!

What Stay at Home Moms Can Learn from Working Moms (and Vice Versa)

What Stay at Home Moms Can Learn from Working Moms (and Vice Versa)

I feel like I’m stuck in pickle… I am a working mom, but a lot of my besties are stay at home moms. What does that make me?

I’ve never really felt like I fit under that “working mom” label, but that is in reality what I am.

I always try to guess if you are stay at home or working moms. ps It would be super fun if you’d leave a simple comment SAHM or working. When I did my podcast How to Be Joyful as a Working Mom It was one of my popular podcasts! So, I wanted to look at that topic with a new twist.

So, it's been a busy week here! I finally caught the cold that my son and husband have had, so my head feels like a beach ball trapped underwater while my throat feel like sandpaper on fire. To quote Olaf… “All good things… all good things.”

So, I’m sad to say I don’t have a new video.

You can check out My Instagram to see what I’ve been up to this week.

Weaning Advice That Saved My Life

Weaning Advice That Saved My Life

Weaning was a bear, for our whole family! I know I’ve blogged a lot about it before when I was in the heat of things, but I never went back after the dust settled to reflect.

In those tear filled moments trying to wean, it seemed like my life would remain trapped in that moment forever! As if we would never move on… but we did, and quite happily I might say.

Dreaming of Renovations

Dreaming of Renovation

Do you love your house right now? Or are you itching to renovate?

I love to dream about renovating! I was inspired while reading Marie’s blog, Family House and a Cat, and checking out the transformation that was going on in her house.

Our house right now actually has a really nice floor plan… So I feel like it could be magical! However when we bought our house, it was purposefully an inexpensive house to be placeholder while we paid off a lot of debt.

Fashion 101 with Still Being Molly

Fashion 101

When it comes to fashion I often feel lost. I have the best of intentions… but some how I will just miss. I remember when people would come up and say, “That is just the best outfit!”… and I’d say, “Yeah that one was a gift…”

Then, I met Molly from Still Being Molly at Brand Market earlier this year. Not only was she incredibly nice, she was super stylist.

It seems that everywhere we go we’re surrounded by germs and sickness. Ahhhh!

Currently, my family is among the lucky masses who have hand foot and mouth… I can’t even believe I’m writing this, I just want to image it isn’t so.

Talking with other moms, I know we’re not the only ones at war with sickness so I wanted to share.
