Outside my window…
It’s STEAMY hot with ninja mosquitoes.
Going outside equals 39,934,387 mosquito bites. SERIOUSLY?!
I am thinking…
I never updated about my weightloss/health journey! ACK!
Several months ago, I began a journey to better health. I was at one of the lowest points of my health and I had become uncomfortable in my own skin. Daily nausea, bleeding for 45 days straight, light-headed, and extreme fatigue… It’s hard to be the mom you want to be when you struggle to just get out of bed. After a lot of research,I jumped into a nutritional journey. Within 2 weeks, I could both feel AND see a difference. Inches melted off, I gained energy, my hormones became balanced, and I began to look and feel like the old me. I lost 15 lbs in 30 days and took my life back. I’m B-A-C-K y’all. And better than ever!!
I am thankful…

Our family recently discovered a new business called Southern Suds.
And, I want ALL. THE. THINGS.!!!
This soap is ah-mazing! Simply rub it on your skin (no shower needed) to keep those annoying buggers away!! We cut ours up and each kid gets a cube of soap to apply. This has become one of our summer essentials! Great for the ballpark, camping, or…just playing in the yard! At only $7, it’s a bargain that you can’t miss!!
