The Reality of Being A Mom

Remember the days when you dreamt of being a mom?  You had an amazing wedding, married life is awesome and now you’re dreaming of kids. 
And then you have your first blessing, you decide to be a stay at home mom because your journey to become a mom wasn’t easy and you want to savor every last moment – no matter how hard it is.

We schedule play dates, we try and connect with other moms but it’s not always easy.  Finding your mom tribe can be very difficult at times and the life of a stay at home mom can be lonely.  You’re lucky you can find time to shower, you think you want to exercise but mentally you’re going through the to do list in your head and wonder which one you should tackle first and in the end nothing gets done.  You’re home all day with the baby, your only communication partner is your baby, you search for activities out of the house because you crave adult interaction.  When you do finally meet others you feel judged and very much an outsider because the click has formed.

We all know that being a stay at home parent isn’t easy.  It can be lonely, frustrating and exhausting.  Those on the other side think we are lucky to be able to do that but they really don’t know what it’s like.
Some people actually think that nothing will change when they have kids but change is going to happen and if you embrace it, you might just discover new things about yourself and when you have a team who supports you, together you can fly higher than you ever thought possible.

Can you relate to this?

The Christmas SPIRIT gift guide

It's time to get into the SPIRIT of Christmas!  We are big fans of horses.  As a little girl I've always wanted to ride and used to beg my parents for a horse.  It wasn't until I got older that I finally had my chance and I loved every minute of riding.  The bond you have with your horse is amazing. My daughter has acquired the same love so if your little ones love horses as much as my daughter does, then they’re going to love the Spirit Collection from Playmobil. They will make excellent Christmas gifts and your kids will not be disappointed!

My daughter and her friend had the opportunity to review one of the hottest toys and it was such a blast.  Funny, before we received our stuff we were at the store taking pictures for her Christmas list for Santa and she picked out a few Spirit ones.

Meet Lucky aka Fortuna Prescott – a gutsy, adventurous rider and the very proud owner of SPIRIT, a wild, gutsy, adventurous horse, no wonder they made an instant connection.  Lucky is new to the Frontier and while on the train she saw SPIRIT and fell in love with him. Today we got to chill for a bit in Lucky’s bedroom.  Lucky mentioned that she was getting a new bedroom set so we were excited to help her put her room together.


Pru and Chica Linda - As you’re galloping around the wild frontier you’ll meet beautiful prize winning Chica Linda and her owner Pru, a very competitive rider.  This dynamic duo is always ready to show off their competitive side.  After hanging out with Lucky and we stopped to see these two in action. We heard Chica Linda was getting a new stall so we were more than happy to help. 
Lucky and Spirit - Lucky has never trained to ride and SPIRIT is a wild horse never tamed by anyone but together these two have an unbreakable bond. Oh the adventurous these two go on!  SPIRIT will do anything for his girl Lucky.  They always have each other’s back.  Being a wild horse, SPIRIT has never had a stall of his own until now.  It takes some getting used to but we think he loves it. It was fun building a new home for SPIRIT.
Here's the video of the girls opening the package.
               




The girls had such an amazing time putting together the collection.  They played for hours and we've been watching SPIRIT non stop.  Even I will continue to watch it when my daughter has fallen asleep. It's such a great show.  Here are more pictures of the girls putting their collection together.





Even our Elf - Navidad, wanted in on the action and found a couple of horses to ride.  Christmas is in about 10 days so to make sure you have time to add the SPIRIT Collection under the tree here's where you can find them:

Horse Box – Pru and Chica Linda

Lucky’s Bedroom

Horse Box – Lucky and Spirit

SPIRIT: Riding Free from DreamWorks Animation is now streaming on Netflix. We've been watching it non stop, that's how awesome it is!

Birthday Blessings

Today I received a blessing. I’m thankful for another day, for another amazing birthday. Every day I’m thankful and grateful for what I’ve received – the good, the bad and the ugly
πŸ™
I learned a long time ago that life is too short. 11 years ago I realized that tomorrow is not promised so live your life today. I had an ectopic pregnancy and during my second IVF attempt I suffered a TIA – a Transient Ischemic Attack which is a mini stroke. While in the hospital they also found I had a PFO – Patent Foramen Ovale, a hole in the heart that didn’t close the way it should after birth. I never had any lasting effects from the stroke and for that I’m blessed and thankful. I knew the signs of a heart attack but not a stroke. I was considered healthy and used to work out all the time. Many times I used to wonder what my purpose was
πŸ™
After a long year of meeting with a great team of doctors to find out why I had the TIA they finally came up with a safe plan for another round of IVF. After a successful round and three years later, I finally had my miracle baby
When you look at my picture you will see a fighter, a stroke survivor, a Mami to a miracle baby, a single Mami like the phoenix rising from the flames as a winner, beating all life challenges and defeating hard times. The phoenix is a symbol of rebirth from the ashes of the past, and it also represents the victory of life over death. I’m here to help those who are struggling, who may not understand their struggles and their journey and to let them know there is light and we all have a purpose
πŸ™
I’m thankful for the journey I’ve been on, who the person I’ve become and what I’ve learned about myself. I know what my purpose is and my why!

Shifting Into Shape



Hey Friends,

The holidays are soon approaching and with that comes parties, food and lots more food.  This is the time that we tend to side step our fitness program we've worked so hard to stay on track with.  Let's forget about those dumb New Year's resolutions that no one ever keeps and continue to stay on track with our fitness.  

Are we ready to reinvent ourselves, to shift into better shape?  I want to invite you to join me in a 28 Day Challenge starting Monday, October 29, 2018.  This is an opportunity to get ahead of the "Fall Five." Umm. what's the "Fall Five" you ask?  Well this is the average weight gain (5-7 lbs) during the holidays. Not as bad as the freshman 15 but y'all know how 5 lbs can easily creep up on you.  Let's do an easy Shift into the season and stay in shape together!  This will be done from the comfort of your own home at your convenience but with the support of a group and ME.  We'll hold each other accountable for our progress, push each other through the tough days and share our sweaty workout pics with our tribe.  We all know how working out together is much easier. I like having a workout buddy and it's very motivating when your tribe is cheering you on to succeed. If you follow me on Instagram you know I'm always trying to stay in shape.

Want a little inspiration?  Check out the before and after:
*results vary depending on starting point and effort

You too can do this!  So leave a comment saying YES, I'm In and I'll add you to the challenge group.  I promise y'all gonna love it

Irene

Avengers: Age of Ultron Digital/blu-ray release & Giveaway

Have you seen Avengers Infinity War yet?  Y'all may not know this but I'm a huge Marvel fan. I have a serious thing for Superheroes.  I remember as a kid watching Wonder Woman, and all the Marvel Superheroes.  I remember flying my sisters around in my invisible plane and using my lasso of truth on them.  I grew up with so many cousins that we were able to be pretty much all the superheroes. So many great memories.

As an adult, that hasn't changed much.  I still watch them all - like seriously over and over,  but the best part - now I can share that love with my daughter and I'm super happy to say that she takes after her Mami.

After watching Avengers: Infinity War at the theater I had to go back and re-watch the originals again, it was so good.  This movie was funny and you couldn't help but cheer and clap when something awesome happened.  The whole movie theater was laughing and applauding throughout the movie.

Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Age of Ultron will be released on Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD on August 14.  In honor of this release, one lucky follower will have the chance to win (1) Avengers: Infinity War Digital Code Card by entering:

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Thanks for visiting and good luck!
