Friends! Have you ever wanted to try your hand at yoga?? I know I have! In fact, I have a little brother on an LDS mission, who LOVES yoga. Before he left, he made me promise that I would learn yoga and be able to show him a “sweet yoga move” by the time he gets home. Eeeek!
That promise, coupled with the fact that two of my brothers are in film production (they’re amazing) and my blog assistant, Liv, is also a yoga instructor, gave me an AWESOME IDEA! We put our heads together and decided to create a Yoga for Busy Moms online class, right in my own home.

Oh, losing weight… the story of my adult life! With every baby I have (that’s 7!), it gets harder and harder to lose the weight after. It used to be that I could do practically ANY diet, and it would work… low carb, low fat, low calorie, etc. But, as I got older it has seemed like nothing works. I even worked with a personal trainer for two years, made some definite fitness progress, but really struggled when it came to cutting. I tried macros, her bodybuilding diet, and basically everything under the sun, to no avail. Ugh. Soooo annoying.
Hey, friends!! So, in these pictures are my little brother and sister-in-law and they are KILLING IT in the health and fitness department!! I can’t believe the awesome changes they’ve made (so proud!) and am super excited about their new health challenge starting this January… you know, after the MAJOR holiday binging.
It’s a good time of the school year to check in with your kids. How are they adjusting to the new year of school work? How are things going with friends? How are their study habits? For us, it’s been just long enough to get familiar with the new schedule but still early enough that there is plenty of time for adjustments to prepare our kids for success at school! Reviewing these twelve habits and techniques can ensure that your student is adapting to the rigors of the school year.
RH was the most diabolically clever mouse there ever was. I think he was toilet trained, because he never left droppings. I also am convinced he was smarter than me. He stole the bait out of my traps, ignored the mouse poison I had set out for him and even put two perfect little paw prints in one of those sticky traps (how the heck did he get out of that one??). It was like he was putting his hand-prints in cement for the Hollywood walk of fame, just to let me know that he was there. He was a ninja among mice.
This post has everything to do with the cursed mosquito’s cursed plant-cousins: Poison Ivy , Oak, and Sumac. Three plants which I officially put on notice. Your plant days are numbered! You did your durndest to derail my summer, now I will return the favor by swearing an eternal enmity between you and Dankind. I declare you an official enemy of the state of Dan. It is my intention to go all gangsta Round-Up on your three leafed plant kiesters.
I really don’t care too much for New Years. It’s not just that we have yet another reason to over-eat (which I always do), stay up late (which I am having a harder and harder time doing), or deal with the nuclear fallout which are my grumpy kids (and their grumpy parents) the day after. It’s the whole New Year’s resolution forum I hold in the highest disdain as well. In fact, I have boycotted the whole institution of resolution making for the last several years. I just can’t see why I should set goals that I most likely will not have the will-power to achieve.
It’s coming … the dreaded cough and cold season. All those cute kids head back to school and share their not-so-cute germs with each other. It’s inevitable that someone at my house will end up sick, so I try hard to be prepared before the fevers, coughs and sore throats that appear (usually during the wee…
Has addiction affected your life? I’m guessing that in some way, it has. Everywhere I turn, addiction is breaking hearts and homes. Talking about it more, offering more love and support, can only be a good thing. So, that’s what I’m doing today and that’s what I hope you’ll do with me. Together, let’s support addiction recovery.
For me personally, I love to give. I love to serve and help and be busy doing good things. I love taking care of my family and making sure they have what they need. Those things are important to me because they are important things! BUT…we must be willing to stop and take care of ourselves as well. When we get so wrapped up in taking care of everyone but ourselves, eventually what we will have to give may not be enough.
