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

Don’t Stress, Just Don’t Stress

I don’t know how many times I’ve heard that in the past couple of months. I really couldn’t count. I know, I know everyone means well and everyone just truly doesn’t want me to stress. Not so much for my well being (although I’m sure they care a little about that too) but because of this little baby in my belly. Pregnancy is no time to stress but you know what, life happens and sometimes things cause you to stress…especially when you are already prone to stressing out. So what’s up? Why the stress? Why can’t I just chill out? If you follow me on Facebook you’ll have seen that my little guy had a little bout of Bronchiolitis about a month ago and we Read More

Kid's Cushion doubled sided Play Mat

Play Time!

One of the things I love about my house, the hardwood floors!! One thing I dislike, having my son play (and fall) on those hardwood floors. I’ve been using blankets, usually 2-3 depending on the thickness,  so that he can be comfortable on the floor and it seemed to solve the problem. Finally I started using an old down comforter folded lengthwise and an old queen size duvet also folded lengthwise and that was really perfect for his playtime. What wasn’t so perfect was the hassle of setting it out every morning, putting it away every night (that duvet is freakin heavy!) and if he spit up or spilled juice on it then guess what I had to clean the whole thing. I was getting Read More


Happy Reading

I LOVE BOOKS! And now that I’m a Mom I LOVE buying Joaquin books! Lucky for me Costco has an amazing inventory of kids books at such affordable prices. Best thing about it, I don’t ever feel like I’m wasting money on books! A few days ago I headed to Costco all by myself, it was seriously like I was on a mini vacation! My Mom was at home with my little man so I literally had all the time in the world to just browse and sip my decaf Pumpkin Spice Latte 💁🏻 Yes that is literally my life now, don’t judge me. But anyways…I started looking at the books because I really wanted to start working on ABC’s with my little guy. What Read More


Pregnancy, Take II

Pregnancy, the 2nd Time Around Now believe me, I’m no expert – but I did learn a lot about myself, my body and pregnancy the first time around. Specifically, I learned about what I don’t want to do again and what I’d do different if I ever got pregnant again and here’s what I came up with: Damnit, I’m going to NAP 💤 The first time around I felt this huge amount of guilt every time I took it easy and especially when I napped. What the heck was I napping for? I work from home which of course meant I should have the house spotless, dishes done, laundry folded…basically everything taken care of, I didn’t have time for naps! Oh no, not this time Read More



You might have noticed (well hopefully you did) that I took a little social media hiatus for the past couple of months. Well I have a good reason. Not only did I take a break from social media but I also took a break from working out and following an eating plan. Why? Well if you haven’t already heard…I’m pregnant! Yup! Bun in the oven. Knocked up. Now that reason alone is not an excuse for not working out and eating well and what does that have to do with social media? Well let me explain. The last week of June I wasn’t feeling well at all, I had worked out pretty hard one Saturday (double workout with pre & post workout, Shakeology & BIG Read More

Strawberry Mango and Quinoa

Big Boy Food

Joaquin is now a year old! Still having a hard time wrapping my mom brain around that lol But it became pretty clear that I needed to start feeding him accordingly. I could tell he was getting tired of pears every morning so I knew I needed to switch things up. The problem was what? We haven’t had the best experience with apples and he definitely has some digestive issues…for a minute I even considered buying him already made food because I just wasn’t sure what to feed him! Alex and I took a trip to the Co-Op at the Village to check out their produce and I meandered over to their baby food section, prepared to convince Alex that we needed to just buy some. After I Read More

A Love Letter To My Son

Happy Birthday Joaquin!   At this very moment a year ago I was hooked up to monitors at the hospital, getting no sleep. I was anxious, I was nervous, I was scared. I had been on bed rest for 6 weeks, I had been seeing a specialist for 5 months, I was scared. It was just you and me this whole time, yes your Daddy was there he was taking care of us; he was making sure we ate, he was making sure we were comfortable, he was providing for us and loving us but it was really just you and me. Daddy was asleep in the hospital while the nurses came in to check on us, he was stressed out and worried but he 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

Bye Bye Baby Weight

Peeps, I’m not about weight loss. I really am not! I’m a firm believer in measuring results by how you feel, how you look in the mirror, how your clothes fit, are you getting stronger and do you have more energy. Now with that being said…I AM going to celebrate the fact that as of Sunday I am 7 lbs below my PRE PREGNANCY weight…yes you read that correctly. I weigh 7 lbs LESS than what I weighed before I got pregnant! Now if I’m not into checking the scale why am I celebrating this? Well because guys, I’ve been working hard at this and it just goes to show that this program is working for me!! How exciting! I’m eating more food than I ever have and I Read More
