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!

Just got back from a much needed weekend away to Saint George Utah!  It was so needed.  We were went and relaxed and swam, and ate way more then we should have ha.

It is so nice to just get away for a second to relax and revamp.  It definitely helps clear my mind and gets me to where I need to be… and that is SANE ha.   Breaking away from the daily routine is always a good idea.  

You can always count on someone getting sick though, which I am super glad it wasn’t Oaks this time around!  Just his good ol’ mom haha.  A bad case of a Sore throat, and completely lost my voice.  No fun, but the crazy thing is, Apple Cider Vinegar is helping it a lot!

So yeah, TJ and I have just been focusing on our careers and family the past little while, so we haven’t left town since last October.  We both just kinda put our blinders on and kept our head down and worked and spent a lot of time with family at home.  Just the simple things, which is the best.

But now, we have so many Summer Vacations planned which I am super excited to share with you!  Heading to Cabo in a month.  I have never been there.  Anyone recommend anything?  Food, places to go? Anything?  

Switching lanes here, I found these sneakers on Khols and they were only $50!  I haven’t been able to find a cute pair with the star print on them, that don’t cost a ton.  Here they are! Super comfortable and cute.  Goes well with anything really.  Especially a simple mom look!

Going to relax more today, and sit back and drink Apple Cider Vinegar + My Night Tea and hope to get my voice back soon!  

Have a great Monday!
