I’m always working out, running and chasing Oaks around, or out and about running errands. Life doesn’t seem to get any less busy these days. I always find myself having a hard time finding a good running shoe. DSW has such great budget friendly prices that you really can’t beat. I love New Balance and always have, but I haven’t tried their running shoes until now! I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to find a nice pair of running shoes. This pair I’m wearing is so comfortable!

So back to my story: I’m always on the go. You guys know this about me. I wake up at 6am, get ready for the gym and need to jump right back into more comfortable wear. You really won’t find me wearing anything but sneakers these days… that’s mom life for ya, right?




(MY SHOESI love that New Balance has a dressed-up sneaker vibe too, so I can quickly come home, shower and throw them on to meet dad for a quick family lunch. I always need easy and cute, yet efficient and that’s what these are! They’re a pair of sneakers you can wear with something that’s a little more “fancy” like a cute sweater, button up, or pullover sweater. I love the burgundy color I’ve got on!


(OAKS SHOES) And yes, Oaks totally sits up on the table for lunch. That’s toddler life for you. It’s really the only way we can get him to sit still while mom and dad enjoy their lunch! DSW also has cute little shoes for your toddler including these (which Oaks won’t take off because he loves them so much). He’s been running all over the place with them! 


(TJ’S SHOE) Same goes for TJ. He also has been running all over with them like a toddler (haha jk) but really, he loves the pair he’s wearing! You’ve got to check them out. Don’t we all want affordable, yet easy AND cute? That’s a DONE deal for me. The whole fam will enjoy them!

I love my lunch dates and days spent with my sweet boys! After this lunch date, we walked around and rode the ferris wheel (which Oaks wasn’t amused and TJ hates heights), but on a good note, Oaks rode up and down the escalators for a good 30 minutes while TJ shopped around. He was running all over the place and jumping on and off the escalators! He honestly loves the comfort of these shoes. They’re all under $100 and the kids’ shoes are under $50 at DSW.

Let me know what you guys think! Do you shop at DSW

Have a great day!








There is nothing more important to me then my health.  You all know this, if you follow my IG regularly!  I post a lot about my vitamin regimen.   I want to be at my best at all times, so I can be a good mom and wife!  Following a good vitamin regimen has always been my thing.  I’m very consistent with regimens, which is why I always see and feel the benefits of them.  Being consistent is so important when following a vitamin regimen.  Take it at the same time everyday, so that you will take it everyday.  Then get a pill organizer to make it easier to take them.  The easier and more efficient things are, the more likely you’ll follow through.

So lets talk about my little regimen!  I’ve been taking a lot of Swanson Health vitamins.  Have you heard of them?   I’ve really loved their prices, and the options they have to support a longterm daily regimen and our overall health.  Something new I’ve added into my routine is Vision Defense.  Eye health is something I’m focusing more on.    So here is the breakdown of what it is.

Vision Defense is a supplement that helps protect your eyes against eye fatigue and the harmful effects of blue light. The average adult spends more than 11 hours a day on electronic devices. Smartphones and tablets emit more blue light than any other light source, and 50% of eye doctors report an increase in digital eye strain and effects from blue light exposure among patients. This can lead to blurry vision, lack of focus, dry and irritated eyes, headaches, and neck and back pain.  So this is definitely something I want to prevent! 

Swanson Vision Defense is a powerful formula that’s scientifically proven to protect against blue light damage. It’s main ingredient, Lutemax 2020, is a naturally-derived marigold extract that provides important macular carotenoids – lutein and zeaxanthin – to support optimal eye health. These are the only two carotenoids your body uses for eye protection, but doesn’t produce them naturally.

Most of my job I’m staring at either my phone, or computer all day working away.  Talking to you guys through social media, emails, writing this post for example.   All of my work is through a screen, so this started to concern me a little.  This is why I’m starting it now, so I can prevent these things from happening.  I want to make sure these eyes are good!  We can all relate when it comes to looking at our screens everyday.  So lets get this thing taken care of and take better care of our eyes.  

Scroll down for more supplements I’ve been taking from Swanson Health.  









Other supplements that I’ve been taking from them are, B-12 which this one I love, because its a chewable tablet, making it ten times easier to take.   Plus it tastes good.  B-12 helps fight fatigue!

L-Carnitine which is an amino acid.  I’ve also been using for these benefits, and I can definitely tell a difference already in my focus and energy levels.

  • Burn fat and energize your muscles with this popular amino acid

  • Helps promote a lean, muscular body

L-Glutamine which is an amino acid as well.  It helps keep your mind sharp and keen.  From feeling foggy and blurry. 

I take all of these things once a day, and keep it in this pill ORGANIZER, so that I remember to take them.  It’s also 15% off right now!  

Let me know if you have any questions on the vitamins, hope you loved this post!
