About a month ago I started to feel unsettled with my current life. Don’t get me wrong – I am GRATEFUL for the amazing life I have. My husband works insanely hard so I don’t have to work full-time. My kids are healthy, happy and fun. I am healthy, active and busy. So what the […]Read More Managing Motherhood
This month, Ellie turned 10 months and Jack turned 2 1/2. Jack: – LOVES music and youtube music videos: pentatonix, Daft Punk and Michael Jackson are his favorites. – Favorite movie: Toy Story. He sleeps with a Buzz and Woody doll. Greets you by saying, “Howdy, Padnah (partner)” and “To Infinity and Beyond!” Refuses to […]Read More Keeping up with the Ramseys.
Jake, is the head coach of a CrossFit box in Arkansas. I’ve had the pleasure of taking his class, being coached by him and watching him develop into a wonderful trainer and athlete. He’s one of those annoying people who can envision himself performing a skill or moving heavy weight and actually do it. He […]Read More The Opens (Why I’m Crazy)
I am constantly looking for ways to improve my nutrition and eating habits. I read frequently. I have many leather-bound books and my house smells of rich mahogany. (Ron Burgundy, anyone?) Anyways, one of the things I tend to be horrible at is eating consistently clean. I will do wonderful for about a week. But […]Read More 24 Day Challenge – Week 1
I am the worst blogger on the planet. I said it. I’m trying to be better. I promise. Love me. Anyways, well, 2013 ended very quickly and unexpectedly. It seems that the first half of 2013 dragged along at a turtle pace and then once baby #2 arrived everything went into hyper speed. Now I […]Read More So long, 2013.

We’re 1 month in to a new life with two kids under the age of two. For the most part, it’s wonderful. Hectic and chaotic, but wonderful. Jack loves his little sister, Ellie, especially her “feets” and toes. We’re working really hard on “GENTLE.” I always feel like I’m back training my Great Dane, Frankenstein, […]Read More i’m being held hostage by a kamikaze pilot.
it’s shameful it’s been over a month since my last blog post. I feel like life (this pregnancy especially) is flying by with so many memories and precious moments as a family of three that I don’t want to lose. My mom tells me constantly to write these precious moments down to freeze them in […]Read More 27+
I am currently in purgatory. You know, the place in-between heaven and hell? Yeah. Currently, sitting in a gorgeous apartment with stuff still sitting in my old house. Still in the same city, thank God, but still a huge pain. Especially with a toddler and a Great Dane. I basically scramble around trying to figure […]Read More purgatory.
When I was pregnant with Jack, Spencer Pratt and I were trying to figure out ways that I could keep working without putting love nugget in day care. I knew it would require quite a bit of sacrifice and commitment to motherhood and nursing to stay with both, but it was too early to retire […]Read More the dark side.
