Hey friends! Time for a quick recap of the past month! As per the usual, the beginning of summer is always crazy for me as we adjust to a new routine, attend baseball/softball games and practices, and try to enjoy all the last-minute invites to ice cream, cookouts, and sleepovers!

If you follow me on instagram, you saw a fun girl’s trip with some of my other blogging girlfriends to New York City! We try and get together once a year and boy what a trip this was! We enjoyed time at The Today Show, visiting our friend Candace Cameron Bure at The View, shopping, eating, and lots of laughs! The blogging/online world is an interesting world so it’s good to be with friends who are like-minded! Always a great time of encouragement! Here are a few pics in case you missed them on instagram!

Back stage at The View!


I got a little one on one time with my friend Candace! Too short as usual but such a great time!

Next, I want to remind you of a 3-part series that I wrote last year about “A Mama’s Guide to a Fit Summer.” The 3 parts being exercise, healthy eating, and space. I want to encourage you with some tips and practical advice on how to wade your way through the unique challenges of summer. I am a mom too so I get it! Share with a friend who may need the encouragement!

A Mama's Guide to a Fit Summer:

I tried a new recipe this week and I was thrilled to see the blogger who created it re-grammed my pic on instagram! Ahh! You may want to try it out–it was so tasty!


Finally, for those of you who live in Ohio, I want to let you know of a 5K that I’ll be running on Saturday, June 18th with 95.5 The Fish’s morning DJ, Sara Carnes. It’s “Running with a Mission” to benefit Laura’s Home Crisis Center. You can sign up and find more info here! If you sign up, shoot me an email so I can look for you!
