The statement….”If I could clone myself” is ever so real in my life!!!! *sigh*

Sometimes I wish that God gave us daily organizers, to just tell me what to do to fit it ALL IN!!!!!!! Since we as humans don’t have this built in gift, it is up to us. It is up to us to maximize the time in our days. We all have the same 24 hours. No one person has more or less. Isn’t that crazy! We can’t all have the same time…..sometimes I think….I needed to do this, and that. Or how does such and such get all this done in a day. This can’t be right.

It is.

1 day = 24 hours
24 hours = 1440 minutes
1440 minutes = 86,400

The more mature I get (ha ha a nice way to say older lol ) the more I am very particular about how I spend my time.  I don’t like to waste time.  I don’t like people who waste time.  When I go for a service, I would prefer it be prompt and timely, I don’t want to spend an extended amount of time anywhere unless i scheduled for it.  I love to spend the majority of my time with my Family, God, and being productive!  If it’s not going to make me productive, or do something to “benefit” me and my future, it is an ABSOLUTE…..WASTE…. OF….TIME..!!!!

I want to be the “living” example for my children.  I don’t want to talk about something that I wouldn’t do for myself.  If i expect them to be healthy….I should be the example of what healthy is.  I want them to exercise  and be physically active so I exercise. I want them to be organized so I’m organized. I want to be successful at my job, so i organize my day.  Same for them, their current job is SCHOOL, so i try to make them as organized as possible!!! Ohhhh but how many years did it take for me to get it……ughhhhhhh……but hey… I’ve got it now!

THE 7 P’s are:








It’s important to plan.  Make a plan and EXECUTE it! Don’t talk about it…Be About It!

if I can do it… EVERYONE can.  I have 3 munchkins, that ages are 14 (high school), 12 (7th grade), an 6 (1st grade), being a Mom is NOT EASY! But it is one of the greatest gifts from God, and as Moms it is our job to help mold our munchkins and help them be SUCCESSFUL at anything they put their mind to do!!!!!

Sooooo the moral of this story… is to GET WHAT YOU WANT TO ACCOMPLISH OUT OF YOUR DAYS….The only one that can push and Motivate you ……IS YOU!!  Maximize how you use your time, because once you waste it…..YOU CAN NOT GET IT BACK!!!!





New Age Mothers……. Working Mothers……and the Great Attempt for Work Life Balance :)

Ahhhh If you didn’t know that it’s 2014… Let me help welcome you……. HELLOOOOOO IT’S 2014 (in the most sarcastic voice you could ever imagine)…… and in this day & age…. what has become more common… is the age of  #WorkingMoms 🙂

We are still the first ones awake, and the last ones to go to sleep.  But , now in-between we work 9 to 5’s , we cook, we clean, tend to our families… and ourselves (when time permits).  Its a new day and age.  I remember my Grandma (Momma) working just to buy Minks, Sunday hats…and purses.. and that’s about it.  She didn’t “have” to work.  My Granddad (Daddy) worked his butt off and took care of an entire family of FIVE.  Now, because of the high cost of living …. EVERYWHERE….. that is not as common as it was in the past.  Both parents work, they have to.  They work together to reach a common ground…. making sure that their households are fully functional, and that the children within… want for nothing.

I’m a mother  of 2 and a soon-to-be Stepmom of my 3rd, and my goals are simple:

1.  Make sure God is always first in our household

2. Be a strong support system to my Family

3.  Never let Work/Money become more important than my Family!

It’s really easy to get so caught up in working that you forget…their are people at home that need ya!  There has to be Work/Life Balance.  I have been BLESSED beyond belief to get to work for a company that supports Family.  Mat Ishbia the CEO of USFS  supports the Work/Life balance theory.  He has created a culture that challenges every employee to work their 8 hours… the full 8 hours and then GO HOME!!  They don’t enforce mandatory overtime.  They enforce working your given shift…They want you to maximize all of your time while your at work.. as opposed to lolligagging… and wasting the time that you actually have to be there anyway.  I love it.  I’m excited to go to work…and I’m excited to go spend time with my family when my work day has ended.

My fiancé and our children understand…#WorkEthic… we all push each other, and we know and understand what each persons role in the house.   It’s ok to be a #WorkingMom in 2014.  You just have to maneuver it in… and get everyone to help out in the process.

So just in case I don’t get tell all you wonderful Moms out there….. On Sunday…..

Whether your a Working Mom….or a Stay At Home Mom……either way your title is #SUPERMOM soooooo
