Living That Mom Life

livingthatmomlife

I've been on the struggle bus this week. Having a 5 year old is no joke. I thought as they got older, it would get easier. But that is just NOT the case. Each year, each stage, comes with their own set of challenges. I feel like as soon as I think I've 'got this whole mom thing down', my little guy switches the flip. It's hard. It's … [Read more...]

Books I’ve Read So Far in 2017

Books I've Read So Far in 2017

Do you follow me on Goodreads? If you do you'll see that I've already made it through quite a few books these past few months. Sickness in January had me reading the most books I think I've ever read in a month. I was okay with it, because in 2016 for the first time in forever I failed to reach my reading goal. Not this year! I thought I'd … [Read more...]

Moody Sisters Spring Favorites

I'm on a Spring kick this week! (More on that tomorrow!) I'm worshiping this warm weather that we've been having and even loving the storms that are prepping my garden for flowers!

Blaze-ing 5th Birthday

IMG_5403

This year- being a BIG birthday for my little man, I had every intention of throwing a BIG party. Lots of frills, lots of people, handmade this and that. Lots of details. And probably spending a small fortune. But after asking my little guy what he wanted- he of course just wanted a party featuring his favorite cartoon character...Blaze! And … [Read more...]

Five

bday

I haven't posted much this week, because I've been dealing with the fact that my little man turned 5 today! How is this possible? Wasn't he just a colicky newborn? A defiant Terrible Two...a whirlwind Threenager? I think 4 was my absolute favorite age, and I know it's only going to get better from here. He has such a fun personality. He makes me … [Read more...]

Self Care Favorites

  If you read my New Year post, you saw that this year I really hoped to focus more on self care. Whether that's time to myself, or taking better care of myself. With these products I get to do both! I put together a list of my current fave products that I use to get me a little 'self-care' time. (Just in time for Valentine's Day!) And my … [Read more...]

Tex Mex Burritos

Tex Mex Burritos

Yesterday in my meal plan I mentioned my Mom's Tex Mex Burrito recipe. This is something she made quite often when I was growing up. It's steamy, hot, cheesy, delicious (but not pretty) comfort food. I think I changed her recipe a little- but it came out tasting similar to how I remember, so I'm going to go with it. It's super easy and most of the … [Read more...]
