Tips for Managing Chaos

Life is so much in the air. We have so many balls in the court right now, but we aren’t sure which is ours and which end is our goal.

Everyone is throwing balls and you’re just trying to stay alive. So what do you do when you’re just running around feeling like you can’t even breathe there is so much happening? The answer: you find a way to breathe. 1) You unplug, …

Flight Attendant Appreciation Bags

I cannot take any credit for this idea. This comes from a dear friend of mine (and mom boss) who runs her business in order to do mission trips. Read more about what she does here. She had this BRILLIANT idea to make Flight Attendant Appreciation bags as a way to say “Thank You” and ALSO drop her little business cards/catalogs in there for people. What a neat marketing tool. I’m ALL about giving back and if I can leave a business card and a little one sheeter about what I do- then SIGN ME UP! I tested these out …

Dairy-Free Ice Cream Recipes

Being lactose intolerant is HARD, like REALLY hard. If I had a choice- I would eat all the cheese, ice cream, and creamy goodness I could. But honestly- I get so sick off of it- it just isn’t worth it anymore. People ask all the time why I don’t take a “pill” so I can eat it. Do you know how “unnatural” that is. There’s a problem with my body breaking down lactose naturally- and so putting a foreign object into my body to do it for me- goes against all the basic principles of how our body works. So …

My “breaking” Point

I am so incredibly excited to announce my release of my FIRST EVER OPT IN! This is something that is offered at zero cost to you, just for you subscribing for updates. When I was in the THICK of my Postpartum Depression I remember one day very vividly. I was working 50 hours a week (including my lunch break), I was commuting an additional 10 hours to work, an additional 5 to daycare, my husband was on nights and we NEVER saw each other. I got maybe 30 minutes of “quality” time with my baby before having to put her …

Hi, I’m Lauren

Hey guys! I’m Lauren. Since you stumbled upon my little blogging space I figured an introduction would be nice! I’m the wife to an active duty Air Force member, mom to a 2 year old daughter this april, and puppy mama to two small breed rescues. I was born and raised on the east coast and I miss it every single day. You never realize how much you take for granted the area you live in, until you’re in a completely different cultural environment. We’ve lived in NorCal (not to be confused with beautiful beaches and sunny CA) for 5 …
