DIY Halloween

Now y’all know I am not the Pinterest Queen unless we’re talking crockpots, but I’m stepping outside my comfort zone for Halloween.  The last two years, for whatever reason, I’ve found myself scrambling the week before Halloween for costumes. It’s like I don’t remember that it falls on October 31 every year. Now, this isn’t so much for Aubrey but really for myself and the hubs.  Also, thanks to Spirit Week since starting real school, I’ve had to come up with costumes on the fly. I’m sharing a few ideas in case you find yourself in the same kind of jam.

The Strength to Overcome

It’s icky, taboo and not really something we “want” to talk about.  But guess what? That doesn’t fix it or change the fact that many people, young and old, are dealing with it.  It doesn’t discriminate and often shows up at the most inopportune times. What is it? ANXIETY.

Finding Your "Fierce"

When someone says the word fierce you probably immediately think of strong, bold, or maybe even mean. Those were some of the things I thought of at least until meeting Aly Raisman at my company’s convention this past July. She began to explain how fierce can be anything you want it to be.

My Travel Toiletry Tips

You’ve probably learned that I am the “Carry-On Queen” when it comes to flying.  Even when flying Southwest where I get free bags, I would rather have my stuff with me.  I have a fear of lost luggage and your girl will not look cute wearing the same thing away from home multiple days in a row.

Simplicity Still: Part Two

Earlier this week I shared how simplicity, my 2019 Word of the Year, had been a struggle in some areas. I’ve allowed myself grace in that what sounded great on paper at the beginning of the year, in theory wouldn’t always work.  I’ve made some edits to my action steps in order to better achieve my simplicity goal for the year.

Simplicity Still: Revisiting my Word of the Year

Remember way back in January when I told you this year instead of a resolution I was choosing a word to live by?  Yeah, I know it seems like forever ago. I challenged you to pick a word too. Did you? Do you remember it? Did you stick to it? I chose “Simplified” as my word of 2019 and at times life has been nothing close to that.

Dare to Be Different

You probably noticed that the last 18 months have looked a lot different for me. You saw a lot less business stuff every day and more of just me, my family and my life. I didn’t spam your social media newsfeed daily with a product or another milestone from myself or my teammates. Live videos became a novelty instead of a regular thing. Making these changes at first was scary and I was a tad resistant, but when we do things out of our comfort zone it usually is.

Guatemala: A Perspective Shift

Guatemala... not somewhere you would probably think I would go. From what you’ve seen and heard on the news, you probably wouldn’t want to visit either. Several folks messaged me last week wondering why I was there. In all honesty, 6 months ago, I wasn’t too keen on going myself. However, something told me to take a chance and see.

You Hold the Power : What We as Women Should Work On

During adolescence competition seems to become an every day part of their lives though. Whether it’s sports, academics or some other facet, I see people pushing their kids to be “the best” Although I don’t think it’s intentional, this creates a divide among friendships and even families at times. And what hurts the most is to see a once confident, innocently sweet girl crushed because she isn’t “good” enough.
