There are two types of moms. Moms who Instagram, and moms who don’t. Instagram is perfect for busy moms because it’s so quick and easy to snap a pic and upload it for all to see. Don’t forget the hashtags! #momlife and #mommyproblems are two of my personal favorites. And then there’s #sotired #coffee #whereareyourshoes and of course #isdaddyhomeyet…you get the drift. There’s one thing us Instagram moms have in common, though – we all want to get that perfect shot. And when we get it, it’s probably one of these 15 things all moms love to Instagram. (All of these photos are straight from my Instagram.)

“Such a nice day today! While the kids are at school I should run some errands. I need to stop at Target really quick. We’re out of tissues and toothpaste. It’ll just take a second.” [Read more…]

I don’t think I ever mentioned this, but I have four kids. Oh, I have? Well, then you know that my daily life is just as crazy as it sounds. Occasionally I get a little tired – or extremely exhausted – but I can’t exactly call in sick to work. I also can’t go on a vacation without my family every single weekend, as much as I’d love to, so I have to make the best of my stay-at-home and work-at-home life. Luckily it’s not too hard to #AddSparkle to my day.
I love sitting by my beautiful pool with my feet in the water. It’s the perfect way to relax on a hot day. I can even see inside, so I’m totally able to watch while my children rapidly undo all of the cleaning I did in the living room. [Read more…]

Making friends as an adult can be difficult. I moved out to California from Florida when I was 19, leaving all of my close high school friends behind. I skipped starting college right away and instead became a young wife and mother. I don’t regret any of my choices, but I will say that it made it harder for my not-so-outgoing self to make friends. Eventually I got a part time job and made some great friends that way, but most of them already had a best friend of their own.
You don’t need a best friend per say, but it sure is nice to have someone you can be 100% yourself with. Besides your partner, because sometimes you need to complain about them too. At 28 years old I found someone that I enjoy talking to every day, about every thing. Sadly, she doesn’t live close, so most of daily contact is through messages, phone calls, and skype. Even though we haven’t been friends since we were young, we have a great connection.
Sometimes it feels like all I do is clean. When you have a toddler who always wants the one toy at the bottom of the toy box, and two elementary school kids who become all but paralyzed when it’s time to tidy up, how can anyone possibly expect you to ever have a clean house?
Basically it looks like Toys-R-Us and Hobby Lobby had a baby, and then that baby came over and threw up all over my house. But my husband can’t stand walking into that chaos, and so it’s better if I at least make it look like I tried.
