Feelin’ SoFabulous #3: Finding balance #SoFabulous #SoFabCon

sofabulous3

This is the 3rd post on my journey to be SoFabulous for SoFabCon (click here to see the other posts). When we look through the window at others' lives, we often feel like we are missing something. Comparing ourselves to others' is the biggest flaw we can have. The slight glimpse we get into someone's life is just that...  a slight glimpse. They seem to have the perfect family, but maybe they can't get it together financially. They have a dream job, but their home life is suffering as a result. You get the idea that things are not always as they seem. We all have areas that we excel and others that take more effort to make it all happen. Being a working (whether at home or not) mom is not always as easy as it looks. Over the past 3 years, I have had to work hard to figure out a way to be well-balanced. Three years ago, I was a mom of 3 boys (age 1, 3, 6) with a really messy house who just started blogging. At first, I thought what was I thinking!?! How can I manage a blog when … [Continue]

Gluten Free Spring Granola Bars

GlutenFreeSpringGranolaBars

Healthy snacks don't always have to be boring! Fruity Pebbles are one of the few regular cereals that can be found in the regular cereal section that my kids can eat.

Potato Lasagna: Naturally Gluten Free With Great Day Farms #shop

GreatDayFarmsPotatoLasagna1#ad

 People who go gluten free all have a story of how it all began. We have the struggles of having to figure out how to make it work for us. We went gluten free 6 years ago when our middle son was sick and we were drowning in medical bills. We had been living off of chicken and rice. We were getting so sick of eating a slight variation of the same thing every night. It didn't help that finding gluten free options in the store was not that easy then. Potato Lasagna became a new staple that was … [Continue]

HapariBeforeSwimwear1#shop

 Warmer weather is on it's way! Warm weather means we are preparing  for the love/hate relationship with swimming suit season. It's not always easy to feel ready. I decided this year I would pick my dream suit in my usual size and give myself the motivation to finish getting in shape. I have been trying to stay active. However, with a busy schedule as a mom of 3 paired with unpredictable weather, I have sadly slacked on staying active. I fit into my usual swimwear size, but I am in need of … [Continue]
