Jabra Stealth Review


Disclosure: I received the Jabra Stealth as a Jabra Ambassador in exchange for a review. The opinions are all 100% my own and may differ from yours. As a busy mom (person) taking phone calls is one of my least favorite things to do.  I would rather text, email, or even wait to chat until all the monkeys (boys) are asleep.  Taking a phone call and having one hand hold the phone leaves you with only one hand free… which is often not the best scenario when parenting. There are many Bluetooth earpieces on the market.  Today I want to share Continue Reading

Weekend Adventures


Life seems to by flying by quicker than I can catch my breath.  Each day is different throwing a new curve ball or adventure our way.  Our weekend adventures was fun-filled and jam packed… like most families nowadays.  Daddy was home this weekend (from KC) and we tried to play and spend as much time as we could before he was headed back to the Midwest. The boys are big into football lately.  So… being the good sport Daddy is, he humored them with a little touch football game at the park.  I enjoyed watching from the shade and cheered them Continue Reading

Family, Fitness and Fun


Happy Friday Ya’ll! We are adjusting to our daily routine after returning from our camping trip at Yosemite.  Balancing family fun, homeschooling lessons, fitting in fitness and more… it is always a juggle.  Slowly but surely we are getting things done. This week Daddy is home, Yay!  This good thing is said with pause because he is working from home.  Working from home while homeschooling three monkeys… is an interesting juggling adventure for sure!  It is hard not to play with him (or share parenting responsibilities) when Daddy is home. We Continue Reading

Making Memories in Yosemite National Park

2014-09-21 16.18.07

Our family enjoys spending time outdoors and making memories in nature.  This past week we headed to Yosemite National Park to make hopefully lasting memories for our family.  We hiked, camped, explored, learned, and endured the wilderness of the park. We started our adventure on Sunday morning.  We arrived at Upper Pines campground mid-afternoon.  We quickly began to set up camp.  The boys were eager to play and explore the creek near our site.  I was amazed at the beauty of the valley (where we were).  We were surrounded by tall sequoias Continue Reading

Running in the ASICS GEL Pursue


A few weeks ago I was contacted to review a pair of the new ASICS GEL Pursue™ running shoes. The GEL Pursue™ was awarded “Best Debut Shoe” in the September 2014 Shoe Guide issue of Runner’s World. I am a fan of running in ASICS and this request came at the perfect time as my Nimbus15 and Cululus15 were reaching their max mileage from my marathon training last spring. The GEL Pursue™ is a neutral shoe that was designed for the runner looking for a more responsive shoe.  I have been running in the Gel-Nimbus the past few months and was Continue Reading

Fun at Nevada Beach


This past weekend, our family loaded up the van and headed up the mountain for a day trip to South Lake Tahoe.  We hiked.  We climbed.  We played.  We beached.  We revisited our favorite beach called Nevada Beach.  It was a beautiful day for sand castle building, bird chasing, sun bathing and swimming. The beach was full of families enjoying the beautiful day.  Kids were playing ball, swimming, playing in the sand and more.  My boys enjoyed playing in the cool mountain lake.  I waded to my ankles Continue Reading
