Discover Me Challenge: 3 - If I Could Travel Through Time...


Imagine, if you will, that you have a time machine. This time machine can take you to any period in time - past or future. You can only use your time machine once, to get to your destination and to return (if you so choose to return!).

What period in time would you visit? What would you do there? Why does this period in time call to you?

Would you return?

DMC 2 - When I Grow Up


Once upon a time, I was a relentless dreamer. I knew in my heart of hearts that I was going to be a famous journalist, a children's book writer, a poet, and I was going to marry Christian Slater. Yup, I did say that I was a dreamer.

Though some of my plans fell through, I am not yet done with my dreams. They have changed slightly but I do still have a love for creative writing. Christian Slater, however, will have to understand that I've moved on. Sorry, Chris...

Today, I still do a lot of exploring and learning. You'd think at 39, I would already have the big question figured out but the truth is, I don't. I know that being a SAHM and wife are incredible blessings and I can't imagine putting anything else before being at home, teaching and eventually homeschooling my child. So, I guess you could just say that I want to be a teacher when I grow up. But I also want to be a few other things.

I have long considered studying massage and holistic medicine. This is something I bring up to my husband at least a few times a month. I've thought of going to classes, getting certifications, and possibly opening my own practice so I would still be able to "mom" full time. This is a huge dream but so darn interesting and exciting.

Anything is possible.

Then there are days where I want to study nutrition. Now, this is something very personal to me, as I've adopted a mostly plant based diet and have seen incredible improvements in my overall health. Because of my personal struggles with food (and there were very many), I want to learn more and share with others. Food doesn't have to be complicated. I am finally getting this. So many people have yet to. That's where I want to help.

Anything is possible.

I am pretty sure that I've made my final dream pretty obvious... I'd love to be a creative writer when I grow up. I want to write those children's books. My love for writing poetry remains. I enjoy creating the scene, the characters, the story and especially the mood. I love books and I would love to see my name on the cover of one, one day.

Anything is possible.

I guess you could say that I am still a bit of a relentless dreamer...

4 Fab Faves for Friday

This week I am really loving...

I can't even wrap my head around how much "stuff" we have scattered all over the place with the little one! Lucky me, I was able to get my hands on these fabulous Jute Storage Totes from Ziggy Baby. They are completely different from my other totes, as they aren't just fabric covered cardboard sides and bottom. These are actually made from jute (burlap) with a waxy interior that makes them easy to clean and waterproof. They are super sturdy and they look pretty darn good, too!

OK... I'm kinda in love with my Skechers Memory Foam Slip On shoes. I needed something that was comfy and versatile and in brown. I am on my feet A LOT and so my shoes need to be able to provide support for this busy momma. I honestly wasn't expecting to love these so much (because I am ridiculously picky) but... YES. I love these and they are cute!

Ok, so when I was pregnant with my little one, I needed a hospital bag for all my stuff. I knew I would be staying a few nights, so a bigger bag was necessary. I carry a lot of stuff on the regular but this is special occasion stuff, right?! Anyway, I searched high and low before I settled on a very inexpensive weekender bag from Wild Pair. This bag is pretty darn big (HUGE) but it's also super cute. I can't help myself - I loved it so much that now I use it as a crossbody, everyday type bag. It's perfect for all the "mom stuff" I tote around. Just throw a wristlet in it for quick runs inside a store and anything else you can think of. My husband calls it the Mary Poppins bag. Yup. It's big. Oh, and it gets compliments allll the time. I love this bag.

It finally happened! We got our first tooth on the 21st! Of course, now I am all about mini me's dental hygiene. You gotta start them straight away!!! I went with Dr. Brown's Infant to Toddler Toothbrush and Toothpaste Combo because we seem to do so well with the Dr. Brown bottles and nipples. It's a brand we really trust. Well, it was a good pick. My little one seems to really like the sensation of the brush on her sensitive gums and new sparkly tooth and the flavor of the paste isn't bad either! What I love is that the brush isn't just fun to look at but it is also practical and made well. The little elephant brush stands upright on its own and has soft bristles. This is a great first toothbrush set!

I can't believe how quickly the week flew by... a late TGIF to you. Happy Weekend!!
