Making the Most out of Summer- #FamFirstAtSM

Making the Most out of Summer #FamFirstAtSM

Summer can be especially hard for working moms.

For me? This is when the guilt goes on overdrive because you want them to have the best summer ever but you have to go to work because there are bills to pay, and people at home do not stop eating just because it’s summer.

How to Take Care of Your Face When You're Nearing Your 40s

40’s. Dang, can’t believe I’m writing a post about how to take care of your face when your nearing your 40’s. Ekk! Sounds more bad-ass if I say I’m almost at Level 40, right? But no complaints! 40 is the new 20!

My husband and I are celebrating our 13th wedding anniversary in 5 months and I have to say that I am mighty proud that we have weathered the storms that came our way through the years.  We went on a trip to hell and back but here we are, stronger and still crazy about each other.

Does your child always want to be the first?

My 6yo daughter isn’t the most graceful loser in the world. She gets mad, throws things or sulks in a corner whenever she loses in a game or when she’s having a hard time doing something. She’s the type of child who always wants to be the first in everything. Getting the first slice of cake, to get on the swing and yes, to win all the games that she and her brother play at home. When life isn’t in her favor? She gets mad.
