Father's Day is this Sunday June 16th. I'd just like to take a quick minute to wish all the men in my life a VERY HAPPY Father's Day.
To my husband-you are my EVERYTHING. My rock, my biggest supporter, my strongest ally. Thanks for all you do for me, for our kids, for our family. Thank you for letting me get a dog. Thank you for supporting me when I decided to take a huge leap of faith and begin my adventure in to social media. I know that had to be hard for you because you are not as social as me. Thank you for working so hard for us. We do not want for anything (well, I'd LOVE a Porsche Cayenne, but I'll work on getting that on my own ) I wrote a little something special for James for the Tampa Bay Moms Blog. You can read it here!
To my dad-I know you sometimes read my blog. I hope you decide to read it today. I know things are different between us now than they used to be. I remember being a young child and you were my everything. We had an unbreakable bond. But as we both got older, things changed. I moved away to go to college, I got married and moved further away. And now I have my own family. It's hard to believe I haven't seen you since September. It makes me sad. But it's life. And sometimes life sucks. Just know that I will always love you and I think of you every single day. You helped to shape me in to the person I am today.
Happy Father's Day

I love caffeine! Having a busy schedule, three kids that keep me on my toes, a workout schedule that is invigorating, and tons of chores, oh and life, caffeine is a little pick-me-up that gets me through the day. But in the heat of the Florida summer, I don't like to drink my coffee hot. I like it COLD. And black. Neither of which does anything for my taste buds.
I was so happy when I received this care package from FRS!! I immediately put the cans in my fridge to make them nice and cold!... [More]

As part of the Under Armour What's Beautiful campaign, I made the goal that I would PR at the Iron Girl Triathlon in September. I can swim like a fish, and cycle like the wind, but the run, oh the run! I am not a fast runner to begin with, and then throw me on the course after the bike, and I feel like I'm running with 100lb sandbags tied to my ankles. If you'd like to experience an Iron Girl event I have a discount code for you! Use the code IGCJHB13 for $10.00 off ANY Iron Girl in the United S... [More]

As our family prepares to take our summer vacation there is only one song I can think of: Carolina in my Mind by James Taylor.
We're heading to the mountains of Hendersonville and Asheville, North Carolina. We'll be staying with my aunt for a few days where we will explore Sliding Rock, go gem mining, and hike. Then we were invited to a VIP treatment at the Biltmore Inn. We are super excited! Over 22 miles of trails on the Biltmore property! They will provide us with bikes to explore the ... [More]
