As a 30-something-year-old mom, I find myself in a love/hate relationship with my body. I convince myself not to wear shorts or get in a swimsuit. I squeeze and pinch my stomach wishing it were flatter. Having a candid photograph taken is most definitely out of the question. With my oldest daughter being 10, I’ve become very aware that I need to change my own mindset in order to foster confidence and higher self-esteem in her. Empowerment We are all very aware that social media and advertisements are the breeding ground for an unrealistic body standard that makes women feel inadequate. With that being said, it really is time to change what loving yourself and being healthy looks like. It is...
Feeling anxious? Depressed? Overwhelmed? Stressed? Unfocused? Bored? I’ve got the cure - run. I know what you’re thinking. “Run? That’s hard! And I don’t like it! I can’t run very far or for very long. That just sounds miserable! That will make me feel worse! It's too hot. I don't have time...” Stop. Trust me. It works. I signed up for a half-marathon. I had always wanted to run one at some point in my life. So why not now? The minute I signed up and paid the money to do the run, there was no going back. My life changed drastically throughout my training. The good kind of change. The kind of change that happens within. An inward...
Disclosure :: tasc Performance, a New Orleans based company, sponsored this review and shared some cool items. However, these are our own opinions and we think we will live in these clothes {because, Louisiana humidity} and have a running wish list for more items! A “tasc” Anyone Can Rock! Several of our friends have mentioned tasc Performance in the past few months; we’ve heard everything from “best underwear” to “most comfortable shirts” and “super breathable shorts.” So naturally, my husband and I really wanted to give this New Orleans based brand a trial run! It’s really rare that Tyler and I BOTH gush over one particular brand because we’re typically polar opposites when it comes to apparel. While I'm more about style, he...
I love watching my girl. I love watching her get ready in the morning. I love watching her play with her friends. I love watching her concentrate when she’s trying to do something difficult. I’m sort of that creeper mom who is obsessed with watching her kid grow and learn and explore the world around her. My daughter is eight and I love this age because she’s becoming so independent and learning to do things for herself, and she’s getting really good at it. Almost too good! She’s at the age where she’s a sponge and learns so easily, but can also apply what she learns and execute with ease. Things just come naturally to her. One day I...
When looking for a new activity or family outing, I often turn to my family and friends for inspiration. If my fellow moms or best friends suggest it, then it must be good, right? That’s why I put together three things I am loving right now to hopefully introduce something new to you and your family. Red Stick Farmers Market With the cooler weather here, I’m finding our family is spending more and more time outside. One of the ways we love to spend Saturday mornings outside is at the Red Stick Farmers Market. Located downtown on Main Street, this market is home to local farmers selling delicious local produce and meat. From Louisiana strawberries to local grass-fed beef, you can...
