Happy Mother’s Day to all the momma’s out there!  I had the amazing opportunity to travel to Salt Lake a couple weeks ago and be a part of Alex Boye’s new music video!  He released it just in time to celebrate women and motherhood this Mother’s Day!  I make a few appearances in it even…

I have three wonderful children and one on the way.  As any mother of multiple children will tell you, each child comes with their unique personality.  It baffles me how children being raised the same way can bring such a different dynamic to the family unit.  As it stands right now, my eldest is my…

We are 1 week into the summer and I decided I had to set some boundaries with my boys. Each morning they start to nag me about watching a show or having a friend over. I want them to feel they have some control over their days but I also want them to get some…

Last Friday Night I was blessed to have a heart to heart about parenting with some amazing women- Pam, Jessica from Pretty Providence, Kelly from Dixie Dollar Deals, and Heidi from One Creative Mommy.
