Here’s a recap on our Halloween adventure – which was rescheduled for Friday November 1st due to the threat of severe storms.

So happy it was for while the storms never did it, it was cold and windy and not the most pleasant night to be going door to door. Friday night however couldn’t have been more perfect!



It’s Hard to Get Results

Choose Your Hard 1024x882 Its Hard to Get Results

It’s Hard, I know. I get it.

If it feels as if things have been a struggle lately, I just wanted to let you know that I understand.

Yesterday after getting Tyler from school, the boys and I made a stop at Walmart to grab a rotisserie chicken (awesome for a quick dinner option) and check to see if there was anything else Alexander wanted to add to his Halloween costume – he’s been quite indecisive (Jake, Iron Man, Batman, police boy).

The Best Motivation Trick EVER!

back to school boys 736x1024 The Best Motivation Trick EVER!


It’s Week Two of Back to School for us and I can now say that we are finally in a good morning routine. As I shared before, this was a huge adjustment as Tyler’s new Middle School schedule (can’t believe he’s a 6th grader!)  has him getting up and ready nearly two hours earlier than elementary school!

Sure the first week was a bit rough…but we made it through and I can now admit that I like having to start my day a
couple hours earlier.

Since school has now started up for many other families, I’ve been getting several requests for help that go a little

“Holly, help! School started and now I am losing motivation!
Please kick
start me again!”

Does this sound like you? (more…)

Still cannot get overt the fact that Tyler is going into Middle School. Our morning routine is going to completely change as Tyler’s get up and get ready schedule will shift to almost 2 hours earlier. To help make this adjustment we have spent the past week waking up about 5 – 10 minutes earlier.
