How My Motherhood Story Began

Motherhood. Where do I even begin. It is both beautiful, challenging and somehow completes every part of me. When I was a young child, I remember always picturing myself as a mommy when I grew up and I knew that I would be a great mommy and I wanted to be a best friend to my kids like my mom was to me. I never knew the challenges that came along with Motherhood. I never knew how much you would worry about these precious gifts from God that you brought into this world. A dear friend of mine is a new mommy to her second child and I have been chatting with her about her challenges she's been having and that has prompted me to write this post, because I'm hoping that, like some moms out there, I want you to know, that, yes, we go through this... so I want to share with you my story. I guess I should start with my birth stories.... Cause those are always fun... LOL With our first child, Nicholas, our birth plan, as with most, we wanted to of course go the natural way

Chipotle Cod Burrito Bowls with Coconut Cilantro Lime Rice and SpicyStrawberry Salsa

First for foremost, I wanted to apologize to all my viewers to not providing you with a new recipe in a while.... Lets just say, Life happened... times got super busy... Our third child was born in August... A beautiful baby boy. Now at 9 months old, I have made a commitment to myself to start blogging more often. I need to for me, I mean, why should I not blog.... I am doing what I love.... I love to cook, I want to share with all of you my passion for cooking, my newest recipes, the recipes of others that I have tried. I'm excited to move forward with my blog and with all of you... we're in this together. Here is one of my newest recipes I have tried. I found this recipe on Pinterest. Originally, the recipe called for Mangos, however the mangos were no good at the stores when I was shopping... I'm a little OCD when it comes to my produce. I hope you all enjoy this recipe as much as we all did. Chipotle Cod Burrito Bowls with Coconut Cilantro Lime Rice and Spicy Straw

Spicy Shrimp with Cauliflower Mash and Garlic Kale

Cauliflower is one of those forgotten vegetables.... its so versatile... I eventually want to cook my way through cauliflower and eat cauliflower for 30 days.... I'm looking forward to when I get the opportunity to start that challenge. The kale in this recipe was amazing... I'm always trying to push kale on my hubby because it has so many great health benefits, but again, this recipe was no different... kale was a no-go for him... Can't blame a girl for trying, right? I hope you all enjoy this one. It was easy to cook and the entire family loved this recipe... Even my 9 month old devoured the food!!! Ingredients For the Cauliflower Mash 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 head cauliflower, cut into small florets (about 6 cups) 3 cloves garlic, minced 1 cup milk 3 cups vegetable or chicken broth 1 14-ounce can white beans, rinsed and drained ½ cup cornmeal ½ cup shredded cheese, like sharp cheddar or havarti 1 teaspoon salt For the Kale 1 tablespoon bacon fat


Starting October 1st, I began the Dave and Rachel Hollis Last 90 Days with my dear friend Kelly. I was nervous at first when I started because lets face it, I often start things and never finish them... I started and began waking up every morning at 5:30am every morning. It was easy at first. Then BAM!!!!! Obstacles came and got in the way, but I persevered because I was not backing out of this Last 90 Days and Kelly has been such an amazing support through this journey with me. Our daily and weekly check ins have been amazing and I couldn't have asked for better support along this Last 90 Day Journey.  I did not expect to have the Growth I have already experienced in such a short amount of time either.. We are only 23 days in, but I have already faced some major hurdles that I have been avoiding and it feels like a major weight has been lifted off of my shoulders, so I wanted to   write a little bit about Growth today. I can honestly say since I started this 90 day journe
