5 Reasons Why I Make a Horrible Blogger

Tank top from SweetTsDesign
1)  9 out of 10 I am dressed like above. 
Mom bun, jeans, tank top and very minimal makeup. 
In order to take fashion photos I have to get ready
and as a mother of 3 under 3... ain't nobody got time for that.

2) I lack consistency. 
Example: I am going to blog every Tuesday + Thursday.
Well, Tuesday the kids had doctor appointments
and little one got shots which made Wednesday + Thursday
a big bundle of FUN as I pleaded for just two seconds 
him to feel all better and the crying to stop.
Nothing ever goes as I planned.

3) I don't own a white bedspread.
Have you ever noticed that EVERY blogger
has this amazingly huge bed with white 
blankets to take adorable family photos in?
Not only is my comforter a mix of whatever
blankets don't have baby pee or puke on it 
at the time but my bedroom also looks like a war zone.
6 moves in the last 3 years = everything still in boxes.
It's like we are afraid to unpack.
Which leads us to...

4) I don't live in a beautifully decorated house.
In all honesty we don't even have photos hanging on the 
walls because every hole we put in has to be fixed 
when we leave which is actually next week!
Matt and I have been house shopping for 3 years 
and if you have followed our journey you know 
we are very LUCKLESS.
So if you love photos with blank white
walls and sometimes boxes in the background
I AM YOUR GIRL!

5) We don't go on fancy vacations.
As much as I would love to be laying on
a beach with an adult beverage in my hand
lets be honest it really wouldn't
 be that much fun anyways. 
Treyson would be screaming because he is too hot.
Brayden would throw sand in Elena's eyes and
forever want to be in the water but scream
because the water hurt his eyes and taste bad.
And Elena would simply be trying to eat everything
on the beach from cigarette butts to shells. 
So as good as the idea sounds I think ill pass +
put the money towards my stroller addiction.

Confessions of a Hair Color-a-Holic

When sitting and deeply thinking about something harmful that I am addicted to it took awhile for me to come to terms with the ONE and only addiction that I have. 
Coloring & Bleaching my hair.
I have never:  smoked tried any drugs rarely drank alcohol chewed tobacco eat lots of junk food or even drank caffeinated drinks.
I am fairly borderline boring besides the fact that  I am ADDICTED TO CHANGING MY HAIR. Here is my story and eye opener:
I started coloring my hair when I was 15 year old.  For the longest time I was a tom boy and had naturally long dirty blond hair.  The first color I ever did was burgundy underneath and low lights up top. After that it was a spiral of different colors. 
Strawberry blonde, dark brown, blonde with red low lights, platinum blonde, chestnut brown it never ended. Along with all the colors I also had issues with ever growing my hair out again  because I was constantly ruining my hair with chemicals.
I started wearing my first set of clip in extensions when I wa…

Chicken Pox after Vaccine

The run around due to Breakthrough Varicella
On October 30th 2014 my son got his Chickenpox Vaccine. 

November 24th  I noticed a few bumps on his stomach when he woke up and called his pediatrician for an appointment right away. The doctor said that they were bug bites.  When I asked about the chicken pox vaccine she assured me that the rash had nothing to do with the vaccine. I picked up calamine lotion and carpet insect killer.  Went home and stripped his bedding, bleached his crib rails and mattress,  sprayed his carpet with the insect killer and even got rid of our dog. The bumps dried up but as soon as they did...
December 2nd Brayden was once covered in bumps.  They were mostly on his back/neck and stomach. I freaked out thinking that it was a bug again even though he sleeps in footie pjs. Once again I sprayed the carpets, stripped his bedding and bleached his mattress. I searched HIGH and LOW looking for any bug(s) or even a spider web. The bumps dried up and went away but not for long. 
By Dec…

An honest blog about Honest Diapers ❤ PART ONE

Before I get into the benefits of Honest Diapers I wanted to first share my story on the struggles I dealt with that lead me to Honest. 
My first born, Brayden, always struggled with diaper rash from name brand diapers.  When he was first born we used Huggies.  I noticed that I would have to CAKE on ointment just to keep the rash away when he didn't even had diarrhea or a soiled diaper. 
We then switched to LUVS. Within a week his rash was even worse and peeling.  I once again headed to the store to look and buy new diapers.
All these store named diapers that you always hear and every box is saying how amazing their brand is but even Pampers didn't help his poor butt. I was spending tons of money on diapers and diaper rash cream too! 
I then switched to Huggies Naturals. He still got a rash and our problems were far from gone.  Brayden came down with a virus that consisted of unending diarrhea.  Mixing diarrhea with an already sore bottom was not a good mix.  I took my poor b…
