currently

For those of you that missed me, I'm baaaaaaaack! (So basically, hi mom ;)) I can not believe what a whirlwind life has been since my last blog post! It has been a crazy adjustment finding my groove with LuLaRoe and of course, being a wife (Eric has been working a ton, surprise, surprise!) and momma (the kids never stop... story of every mom's life... amiright?!). But it's been the BEST adjustment! I can't believe how much I am loving the crazy hustle that is my life right now! Of course I can't wait to update you all on everything so I thought I'd start today with one of my go to's with this post to touch on a little bit of everything!


Loving: being a LuLaRoe fashion consultant. I swore when I joined the movement that I wouldn't become crazy obsessed with LLR, but gosh dang, it's hard not to when you're apart of such an amazing company; one that focuses more on giving than receiving, one that challenges you to step away from yourself on the daily and serve everyone else... and the clothes really do live up to the hype! I know some of you "caught the bug" thanks to me, and I'd like to say I'm sorry, but I'm no more sorry than you are ;) ha ha! The addiction is real! LuLaRoe has been such a blessing to my family not only financially, but in a million and one ways that we weren't expecting. (If you want to join my shopping group, I will be doing a FB Live this week to touch on specific ways that LLR has blessed us and why we love it for other reasons than just the $!)

Reading/Watching: you know the drill here. I'm all about the kid's books ;) ha ha! But I will tell you that we've developed a love for Usborne books thanks to a party I hosted a couple months back when a friend reached out asking me to. They have some fun books that have kept the kids and me entertained! (And no, I'm not selling Usborne as well ;))
Eric and I haven't really been watching shows (I'm not kidding when I say our life has been hustle, hustle, hustle) but of course I watch the Bachelorette while packaging clothes to mail out ;) And we are definitely looking forward to a date night when Jason Bourne comes out!

Trying to: talk Eric into taking me to the beach! I'm dying to spend a couple days soaking up the sun with my favorite people! Beach, pool, mexican food, sleep, beach, repeat. I just want to escape the real world for a couple days and vacation with my fam! (Eric- are you reading this?! TAKE ME TO THE BEACH!)

Wishing: that the kids would stop growing so darn fast! James is close to 10 months (HOW?!) and Mia is 3 1/2 going on 13. I will be doing updates on the kids asap! Isn't it funny how during the time of our life that is most definitely "survival mode" while parenting young kids, we desperately wish we could freeze time just to soak it up a bit longer?! I'm so blessed to be Mia and James momma!!

Excited for: Eric's promotion at work. As you all know, Eric has worked his hiney off these past years. Our move to Arizona has been a good one, but he has worked like crazy and it's finally paying off! Eric accepted an offer where he will be working 40 hours a week (for the most part) and we are THRILLED! The perks that come along with the promotion don't even mean that much to me (but thankfully they reflect what a killer employee he is. He's worked hard for it and deserves the recognition!!) because the time we will have with him again is everything!! I know I am a braggin' fool right now but you know what? Eric is super man and deserves all the praise. He has been my rock since becoming a mom to 2 (more of that in a later post as well) and he's been the glue this family has needed. I'm so proud of him and SO thankful to call him mine!!

Life is slightly crazy for me right now, but I totally plan on getting in touch with you after my wedding wraps up to see what LuLaRoe is all about! Congrats to Eric on his new promotion and hope the kiddos are behaving for you. (;

I was actually just thinking about you earlier and wondering if you had stopped blogging since I no longer was seeing posts. Welcome back and congrats to Eric!

Hooray for a promotion with less hours!!! Chris was working 80 hour weeks for weeks. Barely saw the guy. But the need stopped a couple weeks ago. It's almost like a vacation ha. What can we say, we like having that guy around so I totally get your excitement =)
