Inspirational Life + Career Podcasts

I am a HUGE podcast junkie. I honestly don’t listen to the radio in my car anymore (unless Ford is fussy and I play his nursery rhymes.) I almost always have a podcast plugged in! From business to motherhood and daily life inspiration, I have a list of favorites that are always on rotation. Thought it would be fun to share my most loved podcasts and the episodes that are a MUST listen.

Airing my dirty laundry

Sharing my dirty secret…I hate doing laundry and decided I am not going to do it anymore! I recently enlisted WishWash Laundry to help our family and it has been the best decision.

Things I am saying 'no' to this year

One lesson that motherhood has taught me is that I simply cannot do it all myself. We’ve all heard the phrase ‘it takes a village' but I never truly understood that until I became a mom.

Here are a few things I committed to saying ‘no’ to this year to cherish my first year of motherhood.

I thought it would be fun to share a rundown of my typical day since I receive a lot of questions on how I balance running a business, blog and being a mom. My schedule is constantly changing, but I like to try and be consistent with how I focus my time and energy each day. This helps me to maximize the limited time I have to work/blog and be a mom. Here is a look at how I schedule out my week and what a typically day looks like.

Thoughts on 30

It’s hard to believe that I am entering a new decade. But I think I am really excited about what my thirties will bring. My 20s were a rollercoaster. So much change and unknown’s. I really feel like I discovered who I was in my twenties, but also had to go through a lot of emotional experiences and big changes to get to where I am.

I am excited to enter this new season of my life and thought it would be fun to recap my twenties before closing that chapter and to share what I am most looking forward to as a 30-something.

Monday Musings - 03

This week has been so off…Monday felt like a Sunday, so this week’s Monday Musings post is a bit late…whoops!

In other news, it’s still freezing cold in Kansas City and although stores are bringing out spring clothing, I am still bundling up in sweaters. Hopeful that this snow will melt soon because the cold, grey days seem to make everyone tired and a bit in a mood. Just me? Here are a few of the FAQ’s I received last week. I am sharing everything from my favorite nursery finds (under $50) to haircare products and when I find time to blog!

Postpartum Health: Getting my smile back

One thing I did not prepare for during pregnancy was how much the hormones would affect my overall teeth and gum health. I’ve always had to take extra care of my teeth. It’s the one thing that hasn’t been easy for me, ever! I literally have to brush and floss more than the average person to keep them healthy. But I am excited to share how I’ve been improving my gum health and smile.
