In 2017 our family went through so many changes!

Michael and I got married, I changed jobs, we moved (twice!).Ally and Sawyer learned to ride bikes with no training wheels (at the age of 3&4).Ally lost her first tooth. We officially decided we were ready to start trying for baby #3 to add to our family!

With so many memories made and getting settled in our new home we were ready for 2018.


2018 is The Year of I Will!

January 1st. has always been one of my favorite days of the year. It’s a holiday, the beginning of my birthday month and the world just feels like it’s been refreshed.

It’s also that day of “new year, new me” which means this is the year we make the resolution to eat right, exercise and stay hydrated on rosé all day….I mean water….stay hydrated on water.

Each year, along with the world, I always make those same resolutions to myself.

I don’t share them with others because I think deep down I know I don’t want to be held accountable for it when I completely give up on them come Jan 2nd!

(I have commitment issues but that’s a post for another day).

I don’t want to make those same goals for myself this year, instead I just want to do more of what makes me happy; mind, body and soul.

So I acquired a few essentials for the new year and wrote down my list for things I WILL accomplish this year!

I WILL take more bubble baths!

Y’all they are so damn calming, especially when paired with candle light and an amazing bath bomb. My personal favorite is lush intergalactic bath bomb!

I WILL step outside of my comfort zone.

Michael often tells me that I live in a bubble and at times it needs to be popped.

I WILL make a beautiful home instead of just pinning them.

I recently purchased  “A Touch of Farmhouse Charm” by Liz Fourez and “The Year of Cozy” by Adrianna Adarme and I swear they were each love at first page!

I WILL journal! Thoughts are so powerful and to be able to sit and convey them into meaningful writing is one of the most beautiful things to me.

I know it doesn’t always come easy so I am enjoying 52 List for Happiness series by Moore Seal, which offers weekly Journal inspiration and the absolute perfect thing for just those moments.

52 List for Happiness
I WILL take time for MYSELF more!

Last year I became that mom. The one where my entire existence was centered around the kids or Michael.

From the time I wake up till the time I drag myself to bed.

I know it is normal to have your children be 95% of your life.

I also know that when you don’t take that time for yourself you can end up running on empty and as the saying goes “you can’t pour from an empty cup”.

I WILL try new things.
House Wine

The perfect example is “The House Wine”.

Once long ago I made the foolish decision of trying box wine and 3hrs after hugging a toilet, I told myself my wine would only come from glass bottles.

Yet after numerous times of passing by this little can at my local grocery store AND working through my trust issues, I finally gave in and I definitely don’t regret it.

I WILL love myself from the inside out!

People assume that being vegan I must automatically just eat fruits and veggies all day. That has definitely not been the case here lately (Oreos are vegan!).

I stopped nourishing my body and keeping it well rested and hydrated….on water. So to get myself back to that point I purchased…

“Eat Beautiful” by Wendy Rowe.

It is full of healthy recipes for each season of the year.

“Eat Pretty” by Jolene Hart

Which is a great 40 day journal to reset your self and your daily habits when it comes to nourishment.

And last but not least…

I WILL work on having strong meaningful relationships with all the amazing people in my life who love and support me.
My friends, my husband and our amazing children.

Catching up with the Felty Five Family

Catching up with the Felty Five Family.

I am going to play catch up with news from my crazy family.

I like to call us #feltyfive!

Then I will end with my personal favorite, the Chandler Chronicles.

Lets catch up on my family!

Austin, my son is now 2!! I know, I know, cry me a freaking river right?

But seriously though, he’s fucking crazy.

He is the only one out of my three children that hits back when I spank him, He runs, dives, and cries when he does not get his way.

In the end he finally tells me he loves me and kisses me, just when I am about to lose my shit.

This has gotta be a boy thing right?

I mean, I feel like grown men do this as well?!?

They push you to your limit then tell you, “you are pretty.”

Austin is smart, talking like crazy, mean to his sisters, sometimes mean to me, but truly the completion to our family of five.

Lets move on to Parker. Parker is my eight year old.

Before I give the low down on her, let me remind you all that I grew up with ONE older brother and SEVEN boy cousins.

No girls, no drama.

I was made fun if I even if I thought about crying, which is why it makes me extremely uncomfortable nowadays to see or even hear someone cry.

Parker is a crier….and not just a little cry, a super dramatic, Oscar worthy crier. The sad part is, I feel horrible when I ask her “but why are you crying about that?”

Seriously guys, help me to be more sensitive because when hormones hit I am in big trouble!

She also has a smart mouth which is definitely from me. It is hard when you finally realize your mother was right when she said you would get paid back one day(thanks mom).
Chandler Chronicles
And finally my sweet Chandler….my middle child…my sassy, independent, say whatever is on your mind child.

She is officially 5 and getting smarter by the day.

She is currently in a classroom that is an advanced version of Pre-K and her teacher is a rock star. Chandler has been learning words that blow my mind because she fucking corrects me with them.

For example, I asked her to quit arguing with me she said “I’m not I want to compromise.”  Her teacher loved this story. Me on the other hand, I almost busted my 5 year old’s lip but then realized nope she is right.

Chandler gives me the best stories which is why I came up with “Chandler Chronicles.

I have the best stories from her, read them here

Finally an addition to my Chandler Chronicles…..

Everyone knows boys are typically gassy and gross.

I feel like this is normal right?

Well my husband, whom I adore, while driving home, farts and it smells horrible. The gross part is it keeps lingering, and he laughs because he thinks just maybe he “sharted”.

I say to him first “Babe, I swear if you shit your pants..”

Chandler immediately follows with “Dad, I swear if you shit your pants, I am spanking your butt when we get home..”

But then to top it off, later that night we are eating dinner and my husband farts in the kitchen.

Chandler proudly says “Mom, when I was two I shit my pants everyday.”

Yes, Yes, my sweet girl you did, but can you say poop or pooped from now on????? #cussingmom #needtowatchmymouth
