We have had an exceptionally busy couple weeks and with preschool winding down, a birthday party to be thrown and then the official start of summer I want to say things will start slowing down but upon looking at our July calendar it looks like summer vacation means the fun and busyness still rolls on. A few months ago I was at one of the live tapings of The Cat and Nat Show. If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter you would have seen I have been to a few of their shows, I just love going to their shows! Catherine and Natalie are the real deal. Every girl wants a Catherine to their Natalie. They say all the things you want to say as a mom but are scared what people may think of you when you say them. They are hilarious and yet equally inspiring and sweet! While at one of my first of their shows Catherine was wearing this incredible black romper from Banana Republic and I was in love. She looked smoking in it and since I have already admitted to loving rompers I knew I had to have it. The black was so sexy and hugged her in all the right places so I left that night determined to find myself that black romper. Well the next morning I loaded my babies up and we hit the mall to find that romper and sure enough our local Banana Republic had it but upon seeing the price tag I left the store empty handed and heart broken. (ok not literally heart broken but I couldn’t swallow $200 + for a black romper just because I wanted it) So then I was determined to find something similar. Well soon enough I found one that I equally loved and even better was that my husband really loved it and insisted I get it to wear to his work party. Well since I aim to please my husband 😉 I of course purchased it and well the rest is history… or something like that! But this little black lace romper is super comfy and I have now wore it in both the summer and winter and it works for both!

  • Long weekend spent doing errands and packing - sore throat, full ears and a headache making this girl frustrated - sleep they say!?! And I say I wish but when your a mama to 4 and moving in just days sleep will have to wait! Thankful for medicine, @starbuckscanada and the fact we get to move to our new house so soon! Perspective changes everything - can’t change how I feel but I can change my focus!
  • Cold wet morning and early specialist appointment where they told me I had to wear loose fitting clothes- track suit it is! #monday #letsdothis
  • The privilege and blessing it is to be their mommy is one I don’t take for granted ever. They were each worth the years of heartache. Today is always an emotional one for me so today I say “Happy Mother’s Day” to all the moms - the first time moms, the seasoned ones, the mommy’s in waiting, the hurting ones, the grieving one wether that be from the loss of a mom or a loss of a baby/child, to the foster mamas, to the bonus moms to the adoptive mommy’s and the birth moms - I am thinking of you today and I hope you feel love and valued because you are!
  • As a mommy I find myself often times so proud to be the mommy of my little people. I remember being proud when they slept through the night or took their first steps. The older they get the more proud I am of them not necessarily when they simply accomplish a task or master a skill but when they make choices that show their true character. This girl had another gymnastics competition today and she was feeling all kinds of nerves but as she told her brother and sister “I just went out there and did it” and that she did. I was so proud of her not just for being brave or not just because she put lots of work into learning her skills and ended up placing in each event she competed in but because my 6 year old was awarded the sportsmanship trophy for the ages 7-9 in the competition. That to me as her mama made me cry and beam with pride. My girl out there with a positive attitude encouraging the other athletes and competing in a kind and fair manner that’s what it’s all about to this mama. I can take no credit for her awards or her trophy today she earned them all but I sure am proud and not afraid to say it. I love you #graylynnhope and I’m proud to be your mama not just today but everyday!
  • Easter behind us (already) May is coming and dare I say summer is on its way... I’m pretty sure end of school will be here literally before I know it and I’m ok with that but lots of exciting things in store for the next little while and these little people make it all worth it.
  • Monday’s mantra! (And everyday) If we all where a little kinder think how different the world would be! Kindness always wins!
