Weekly Goals August 3rd – August 9th

First Day of School!  I now have a Middle School child which is just crazy to me - how the time has flown!!!  My little guy is in 3rd Grade - not so little anymore.  Last week was VERY productive - it's great how much I can accomplish when I'm feeling healthy.  The weekend was a blur with Swim Divisionals - not the best way to spend the last … [Read more...]

My Favorite Books from July 2015


I didn't read nearly as much in July as I did in June - a combination of just being busy with the kids and being sick half the month (some pesky little bug that wouldn't go away!), but I did still read a few really good ones.  HERE is the entire list, below are my favorites. Non-fiction What a great compilation of productivity experts and … [Read more...]

Weekly Goals July 27 – August 2

Weekly Goals

This is the LAST week of summer break (amazing that the kids go back to school August 3rd!!!).  With swim divisionals coming up this weekend and my daughter going to Middle School (gasp!), it's going to be a BUSY and a bit emotional week.  Trying to plan some fun things to celebrate and enjoy our last full week of summer! Last Week’s … [Read more...]

Yes, You CAN eat Healthy in Las Vegas

Las Vegas

Following up with my eating healthy at Disney post is a second one . . . eating healthy in Las Vegas.  Health and Las Vegas seem a bit opposite, don't they?  Well, they don't have to be! Every year, we take an annual "grown-up" trip to Las Vegas with friends.  A week of absolutely no responsibility.  However, I've learned that if I want to enjoy … [Read more...]

Weekly Goals July 20 – 26

Weekly goals

Two weeks in a row - am I on top of things or what?  Well, maybe getting back to being on top of things.  I ended up with a nasty infection last week and was either in bed with a slight fever or trying to accomplish what absolutely had to be done.  Everything else just got put on hold . . . feeling so much better today so hopefully I'm on the … [Read more...]

Weekly Goals July 12 – 18

Somehow time got away from me . . . summer seems to do that!  Since my last set of goals, I've been on a vacation to Las Vegas and had a good solid "catch-up" week of work.  In addition, my daughter started cello camp, my son finished a week of golf camp and we spent a weekend at a big swim meet.  Throw the 4th of July in there and I guess I … [Read more...]

Favorite Books for June 2015


Lots of vacations this month which meant quite a bit of fun reading.  I really enjoyed a lot of novels (see them all HERE), but also read a few good non-fiction books.  Here are the books I liked the best: Non-Fiction Lisa knows her stuff!  A lot of her advice is common sense, but that doesn't mean we do it, right?  Great reminders and … [Read more...]

Take a Vacation at Home

downtown disney

Last week I shared how to eat healthy at Disney and although I do love a big summer vacation, I get that it's not feasible for everyone.  It might be finances stopping you, or maybe just time.  Regardless, there are still so many fun things to do that give you the feel of being on vacation without the travel and cost. Ready for some inexpensive … [Read more...]

Yes, you CAN eat healthy at Disney World!


Whew!  We just got back from a whirlwind trip to Disney World.  It was the shortest trip there we've ever taken - so short we flew and didn't rent a car.  Which means we were totally dependent upon "The World" for all our food.  For a family that eats pretty well and mostly at home, that was a bit daunting. In particular, I was concerned about … [Read more...]
