Start Planner Unboxing

The 2018 Start Planner Hustle Weekly

How excited was I to get my 2018 Start Planner? Well, very. 😁I knew I wanted to do another unboxing and that meant waiting for the perfect opportunity to record it, this proved to be a little difficult with two little ones 💆🏻. A week later I was able to do it, and it was worth the wait! {{affiliate links included in this blog post, read my Disclosure Page Here.}} The Packaging Start Planner sure knows how to package their product! No detail is left untouched. Welcoming messages lined the box that it arrived in and it really helps add to the excitement.   All the Goodies I treated myself this year and bought a few goodies. I wouldn’t want my gorgeous planner getting all lonely ya Read More

Recovering From a Break

Sometimes you just need to press pause on an aspect of your life and take a break, that’s OK! But how do you recover? How do you get back into a routine when you’ve been out of one for so long? Well, it’s simple! You do the work and take it day by day! Recovering From a Break Step 1: Make a short-term and long-term plan. Took a break from working out? Start a new program but plan it week by week. Don’t overwhelm yourself with looking past week 1 and into week 6. Step 2: Prepare. Haven’t posted a blog in a while? Write out a few blogs and keep them in your drafts so you’re prepared and working ahead! Step 3: DO! Dive back in! Read More

Grace Not Perfection

Some Grace at 38 Weeks Pregnant

As you may have guessed I’m pretty tired right now and things are getting very awkward. Dilated to 5 and baby girl is extra low which is really no fun at all. On top of things being physically hard, I’ve also been really hard on myself this last week or so, more than I usually am. I’m in full nesting mode without the ability to actual “nest” my house is cluttered and unorganized and things are just too bulky for me to move around. It’s frustrating. I want to do it all, I want it all done yesterday and I just can’t. Plain and simple, I can’t. In this type of situation I would normally just call my mom and she’d have everything taken care Read More

2017 Goal Crushin

Goal Crushin! Making 2017 My Best Year Yet!

It’s that time of year….people are starting to think about the New Year: what lies ahead for them, thinking about all the things they want to accomplish, maybe setting a new goal or two. New Years Resolutions may seem cliche but you have to admit there’s something about a fresh new calendar year that just makes you reevaluate and makes you believe that things can, in fact, be different. The problem I’ve had with New Years Resolutions (and the reason I rarely make any) is that they are just so hard to stick with. Just like the majority of people I start off strong then life gets in the way and I slowly start making excuses to not follow through. My fitness and health has Read More

Time Blocking – Making your time WORK for YOU!

I’ve been talking about Time Blocking and how it can work for a Stay At Home Mom  recently, but what exactly is Time Blocking? Put simply, its the process of blocking out specific times of the day for specific tasks. Or put in Stay At Home Mom speak, its a way to LOL at yourself for believing you can actually schedule your day 😂! But… what if I told you….it kinda works? I’ve been on this “get organized, be productive” kick recently (and if you want to find out why you can head ➡️ here) but realized that at the end of the day I’m left feeling like nothing was accomplished and kinda wondering where my day went. I just started Time Blocking and can already see Read More

Role Model

Monkey See 👀, Monkey Do 🐒. Why organization is so important to me now, more than ever!

Finding out that I’m having a daughter has really had a strange effect on me. I was NOT expecting to have daughter, for some reason I had it in my head that I was going to have a little army of boys – my very own personal bodyguards! I was already planning all the things my boys would do together, what their rooms would look like, the sports they’d play together…it was just obvious to me, I’d have boys only. But then I heard the ultrasound tech say “It’s a girl” and I was completely floored. It took me a few days to process and probably an entire week to even let myself get excited. But in that week I started thinking “what can I Read More

Get Your Hustle On 💯 My Review of the 2017 Hustle Weekly Start Planner

Let me just start off by saying that this isn’t going to really come off as a Start Planner Review as much as its going to come off as a “brag”! Imagine me enjoying my new 2017 Hustle Weekly Start Planner and saying “na na na na na” because that’s kinda how I feel 💁🏻 My 2016 planner was the Hustle Business Start Planner and you can see my post about that here. I was really struggling to pull the trigger on this new Hustle Weekly because I loved my Hustle Business so much but let me tell you…I’m so glad I did! I’m fairly busy but not the kind of busy that requires me to track my To Do’s daily. I’m more of “at Read More

Why You Can’t Have It All

Let’s just be real here. You can’t have it all. You see that mom on tv that has breakfast with her family in the morning (full makeup and dressed for the day), goes off to work, comes home to a clean house, makes a yummy homemade dinner (in her heels probably) then goes to bed at a decent hour with her husband where they sit and talk about their day….my eyes are rolling just thinking about it.   You can’t have that life. It’s just not possible. Sure you DO in fact have the same hours in the day as Beyonce as that stupid meme will tell you but what it fails to tell you is that you DON’T have a personal stylist, someone to come Read More
