Reestablishing Healthy Goals and a ZonePerfect Giveaway

Reestablishing Healthy Goals and a ZonePerfect Giveaway Back in January I wrote a letter to myself, encouraging good habits and staying on track for my fitness goals in 2014: Dear Ashley, I know it was hard and sucked running so much and going to the gym a lot. You were tired, sore, and sometimes just plain stubborn. But look at you. No seriously, stop reading and look in the mirror. Hard work pays off. You wanted to tone up, [more]

Robin Williams, Depression, Me, & Laughing through the Pain

Robin Williams, Depression, Me, & Laughing through the PainLike the rest of the world, I was shocked and saddened by what happened to our beloved Robin Williams. A lot of my childhood laughs originated from one of his characters. My first memories of him was as Mork the quirky alien. Genie, Peter Pan, Mrs. Doubtfire, I could go on and on. As an adult The Birdcage is still one of my favorite comedies. Even though I never had [more]

Rock the Lunchbox and Win! #RocktheLunchbox

Rock the Lunchbox and Win! #RocktheLunchbox Last year I got to Rock the Lunchbox and this year I am doing it again. I am doing things a little different though. I enlisted the help of my baby girl to come up with lunch ideas that are healthy, tasty, and fun to eat.  First, I asked her to draw her dream lunch. I told her not to worry about what anyone would think of it, just draw whatever [more]

Planes Fire and Rescue Review and Printables!

Planes Fire and Rescue Review and Printables! The family and I saw Planes Fire and Rescue in 3D a few nights ago. We are big fans of the first Planes, especially my little guy so you can imagine his excitement when I told him we were seeing Fire and Rescue!

Workouts For Busy Moms

Workouts For Busy Moms Most weeks I can make the gym regularly. Life likes to happen though so sometimes the gym is out of the question, unless I go at 6am and sorry I like my sleep too much for that. Because of those kinds of days I started to look for ways to get in some sort of exercise no matter what.  These workouts won't give you your ultimate mile time, best distance, or [more]

Get Red Carpet Ready with Walmart and TRESemmé

Get Red Carpet Ready with Walmart and TRESemmé


I don’t know about you but I like watching the VMAs and other award shows for the fashion and the hair. As I sit there in my jammies, I keep thinking hmm it would be nice to wear a bajillion dollar dress and have a stylist. Walking the red carpet, flashing a perfectly white smile, and signing autographs because I want to be a nice celebrity. Back to reality, I’m a mom who has errands to run and children to chase after which does not require fancy anything. Despite what you see on Bravo.

On that rare occasion that I get to take off my yoga pants and transform into a rock star mom my hair has to play the part. 

Wait, there is something other than wash and wear?

Funny but true. I typically only wash it and let it dry naturally. Making it do anything other than get wavy/curly takes a lot of effort. With a little help from my friends anti-frizz spray, Gel/Wax, flat iron and a strong arm…maybe some wine too, I can transform myself into a rock star momma.

Hair

The Ozeri Green Earth Pan is Recipe Perfect!

Shake the Crave Protein Shake Review

Shake the Crave Protein Shake Review

I recently tried out the new Shake the Crave protein shakes from Trusted Health Products. Protein shakes that I have to make are usually not my favorite thing. The gritty texture and typical bland flavor – no thank you. However, I have tried a few things from Trusted Health Products and everything was fine. ThatContinue Reading
