Snow! Yes, Please!
What better way to spend this snowy day then all nice and warm and cozy in front of the fire. I’m just loving watching the snow fall as I’m just blogging away(mostly behind the scenes blog- housekeeping).
I guess I’m still in the Honeymoon phase with the snow it’s just so beautiful. #Dream Life!
I wanted to share with you all that I’m currently taking a free course via facebook from the Elite Blogging Academy called Build Your Blog Bootcamp. I am just so grateful to be a part of it. There’s so much great information and the group of people are just amazing. If your interested in blogging you should definitely check it out and did I mention it’s FREE!
Anyways, it’s got me pondering a way at my current blog dreams and how much I truly want to be able to help individuals find their everyday bliss so I thought I’d share mine for the day. It’s this beautiful SNOW!
I haven’t really discussed it yet on the blog, but my husband and I packed up our family of six(and of course our german shepard Ace) and moved to the mountains. Now, as I’m sure you can all tell, I’m no where near a mountain girl!
I grew up in the city, so this is a whole new world for me, definitely out of my comfort zone, but an amazing adventure.
We had a lot of reasons on our list for why we were moving, but it all really came down to us wanting our children to grow up in a small community living life and not just keeping up with the chaos of the city.
We are trying to find our bliss here in the mountains and I look forward to sharing it all with you.
For now I’m just enjoying the bliss of this snowy day. How are you finding your bliss today?
Hope everyone has a wonderful day!
Hello lovlies! I was out and about running errands recently and thought of you. Far to often when I’m out and about especially with all four of our children I find myself a little overwhelmed with all the chaos. That’s why I wanted to share a few tips on finding your Mommy zen on the go.
While wandering my way through Target recently, I saw a lady with one of those double decker grocery carts and I thought Oh my!!! I wish I could have snapped you all a pic cause I know there’s days we’ve all been that mom. She had a baby strapped to her chest(in an ergo baby carrier) and two toddlers, one in the top of the cart and one in the bottom basket of the cart. Even with all of that rolling down the isle, I found myself in awe of the tone of her voice with her kids. This Momma rocked. I’m sure she was feeling a little overwhelmed, but she seemed happy as could be with her hands full and it made me think of the few super quick things I do to keep my self in that Mommy zen.
Over the years I’ve noticed there’s a few things I can do really quickly to redirect my self back to not having a mommy meltdown. So here they are friend in no particular special order!
1- I grab one of my eight million chapsticks and refresh my lips. There’s something about smooth, happy, not dry lips that makes me feel instantly refreshed. My personal fav is Blistex Silk and Shine, but any chapstick, lipgloss, lip balm ect will do the trick!
2- I grab a Mommy drink! No, not alcohol lol! I grab a bottle of water, tea or a latte. We get so busy we forget about ourselves when we are running around. I know you packed 2 sippy cups, a back up pacifier and three snack for your toddler to keep them quite and happy on the trip, but what about you? You need something too right?!?
3- I grab some yummy smelling lotion or hand sanitizer and rub it in. The yummy smell like vanilla cupcake or rose petals instantly soothes me. I can even take a few seconds to rub my hands of forearms before moving on.
The great part about these tricks is they literally take seconds and the few seconds that they take instantly help me to feel slightly better and ready to go. Also, kids can join in too. This keeps them busy for a few second while you get a few seconds. I hope these silly quick tips help you keep your Mommy Zen while on the go.
What super quick tips help you when your out and about with the kiddos? I’d love to hear them!

In 2017, I continue my journey to find the perfect pieces for my home. I’m always on the hunt lol! But in all seriousness I feel like this has become a task that’s never ending. With each changing season and my kids growing, our needs just keep changing. I look forward to the challenge though. Who doesn’t want to shop for pretty things endlessly!?! Right? Above are a few of the goodies I was drooling over specifically that mirrored desk up there?⬆⬆⬆ Oh and isn’t this wrapping paper just the cutest!
