A few years ago, my husband talked me into a new mattress to replace our decade old one that was not very comfortable. Since I always stress about large purchases, I was reluctant to agree. His argument was that we should spend good money and be comfortable on a place where we spend a third of our life. I caved and agreed to getting a new mattress. He was so right! A quality mattress makes a huge difference in our comfort and sleep.

Our boys share a room and bunk bed and have been complaining that they aren't very comfortable at night. The more I researched online for new beds, the more worried I became about the chemicals used in many manufactured mattresses.

I was introduced to LuLaRoe clothing a little over a year ago. I had successfully ignored party invites on Facebook for about six months and then my good friend, Karissa Marks, hosted a party and her mom was the consultant. I decided to support my friend and try out a pair of these leggings so many of my friends were raving about. I figured for $25 I could help my friend earn free stuff for her party and have a new pair of comfortable pants. As luck would have it, I won a free shirt during the party too, so now I had a full outfit.

Will you believe, I haven't worn jeans for almost a year now and I've never felt so confident!

Now, my dear friend Karissa, is also a LuLa Roe consultant and I'm so excited to support and share more about her business (LuLaRoe Omaha by Karissa Marks) and why I love LuLaRoe clothing. Read More...


This month: A full-time working mom of 3 boys aged 4 and under. Next month: A stay-at-home mom of 4 boys aged 4 and under, one a newborn. Conclusion: Life can be c-r-a-z-y! I don't always have the time that I want to get dinner on the table. I don't always have the energy to prepare the meal that I want. I don't always have the available hands that I need to prep a meal. I don't always plan ahead the way that I want. Or sometimes, the meal that I did have planned and started turns out to be a disaster and I need another quick plan. This is (really, it continues to be - just for different reasons) a crazy season of life. How my afternoon and early evenings go isn't always predictable. Continue Reading...
