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!

  • You my girl are going to do great things - you already are! This girl never ceases to amaze me and make me proud to be her mama! Her teacher asked to speak to us yesterday - we had no idea why -  her teacher started to share with us  about how kind Gray is and how proud she is of Gray. There is a student in their class that has special needs and Gray has taken such good care of of this little boy since the beginning of the year - she plays with him at recess and make sure he is always included. Her teacher was so impressed by how kind and loving Gray is and of course I wasn’t surprised but The tears did fall as I looked at my girl beaming with  pride. You see this sweet girl has an ability to see people for who they are on the inside. She has been talking about this little boy for the past month and a half when she shares about her day and I had no idea he had special needs or that he was any different than she was cause she doesn’t see him that way she sees him as an equal. How different this world would be if we all treated each other as equal and shared love and kindness with each other!
  • Mirror, mirror on the wall...
It doesn’t matter if I’m short or tall...
If I have skinny legs or my hips are wide...
It only matters who I am inside...
Blue eyes, brown eyes, black or green...
What makes me most beautiful can not be seen...
When you look at me, don’t judge me by my parts...
The most beautiful about me is my heart  #myhomesense
  • Happy Thanksgiving! I hope however you’ve celebrated whether today or this weekend you spent it verbalizing to the ones you love how thankful you are for them! It would be silly of me to try and tag the ones I’m thankful for but I truly feel blessed and I hope those of you know who you are!
  • Fear: feeling induced by perceived danger, a response to a specific stimulus occurring in the present, or in anticipation or expectation of a future. Fear of heartbreak? Fear of the diagnosis? Fear of abandonment? Fear of judgment? Fear of peoples perception of you? Fear of your bank account number? Fear is everywhere and I for one struggle with it! I find music to be a powerful tool in my life and these lyrics have been repeatedly playing over in my head this past week- I wake up singing them I sing them all day long and yet they aren’t just lyrics they are a declaration of truth that I am holding onto “There is no fear and no shame
Your love won't rise above
Every failure sealed within Your grave
For love has overcome”
  • Canadian Thanksgiving is days away and as much as this dreary rain would love to drag me down I can’t help but feel so grateful for so many things in my life! I have started keeping a running list of things throughout my day that I am thankful for like not just the obvious big things but the little ones too like a hot cup of coffee and a warm fuzzy blanket - do you know what that does for my thought process when I focus on all I do have to be thankful for!! What are you thankful for today?
  • Kissing another weekend goodbye but it was a good one! Anyone else wondering  where September went and how is it October tomorrow already!? Exciting things are happening in October so I’m not complaining but I feel like I blinked and September was over!
