Lead Conductor on the Hot Mess Express. Target & Amazon Prime are my BFFs. I help Moms realize they’re more than just a chauffeur, chef or butt-wiper.

Today, I am practicing gratitude. What about you?
.
While listening to a podcast yesterday, this quote literally stopped me in my tracks. I pulled over in the closest parking lot and wrote down this gem from Brene Brown. .
I'm guilty of faking a grateful attitude A LOT. I really am (or should be) grateful for many things in my life, but I just get so caught up in the busy-ness of life that I don't truly experience the joy.

Working from home is not always rainbows and butterflies. Sometimes it means working from the kitchen counter with a baby on your back because she and naps are currently mortal enemies.
Don’t let those sleepy looking eyes fool you. We’ve tried napping in every way possible for the past three hours. She wants nothing to do with sleep, but everything to do with Mama.

This weekend, I went furniture shopping with my husband and two kids. We then went grocery shopping for the week with both kids.
Why? We must be crazy.
It left us all exhausted and hungry, but neither of us wanted to cook. Thank goodness for delivery, right?
It’s not a regular occurrence for us, but it was most certainly welcome!

Sleeping baby ✅
Glass of wine. ✅
Box of Valentine’s chocolates ✅

Sometimes, it’s the little things that can bring you the greatest joy.

It’s 2018! If you’re leaving me a voicemail, you better be my 82 year old grandmother or someone calling to tell me I’ve won the lottery.

When you’re supposed to be brushing your teeth, but you sneak on to Mommy’s bed and then get stuck between the mattress and footboard. There is never a dull moment with this kid.
And he’s wearing his little monkey pjs. How apropos. .

Some people are all about #avocadotoast and shout it from the rooftops. It’s hard for me to find a good #glutenfree bread so I’ve created avocado hash browns.
And since all of my dishes are packed up, I proudly present it to you on my finest Chinet. 😂

I'm a huge believer in Law of Attraction. What you put out in the universe is what you get in return. I could be super nervous about this coming week, but that would lead to more uncertainty. Instead, I'm optimistic, excited and sure all the cards will fall into place this week. .
We are in the process of buying a house and the closing process has been rocky to say the least. We've had our closing date shifted several times, thought we'd lost the house due to other issues and then our homeowner gets ill. .
I'm throwing out all the positive vibes that we get our closing date finalized for this Friday. If so, the moving van will be pulling up to our rental home on Saturday morning and we WILL BE HOMEOWNERS!
.
This is an exciting time will LOTS of new beginnings on the horizon for me personally and professionally. Send happy thoughts and stay tuned to see all the excitement unfold.

Are you a fan of @nbcthisisus ? Jack and JT are my only reasons for the Super Bowl tonight. .
I’m a mixed bag of emotions right now. I’ll probably be in a pool of tears later.

I've missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.

It’s so easy to look at others and their successes with a twinge of jealously. But, if we look beyond the perfectly posed photo on social media, we can see that there were lots of hard work, failures, tears, sweat and determination to get to that point.
.
Don’t judge yourself by the success of others. Your journey is your own and you can succeed in your own time and in your own way.

Are you willing to ask for help? ................................................................................................. I know I'm guilty of thinking that I have to be Super Mom and do everything all the time. It's impossible to do everything and give everything 100%. You are only one person. 
Do the best you can with the 24 hours you are given. 
It's okay to ask for help. It can be REALLY scary to take that first step to ask for help, but chance are you will get the help you need. A lot of times, people think you are juggling all those balls really well, when in reality you feel they are all about to crash down on your head. 
It's okay. You are enough. You are a good parent and you are doing a great job.

Reading to children is such an important bonding activity. Both of my children LOVE to listen to me read and they both "read" stories to themselves too. What are some of your little one's favorite books?

I don't know about you, but January sure threw me some curve balls. I'm definitely ready to welcome February with open arms. 
It's just one month closer to warmer temperatures and springtime flowers blooming everywhere.

How do you buy your bananas at the supermarket?
I buy them a little green because I have a habit of forgetting about them until they are over ripe and then I have to toss them. I hate wasting food ,so I err on the side of caution with fresh foods.
