A Night Of Shenanigans

Recently my family and I went on a Western Vacation for a week. There were 19 of us smiling souls and we had a magical vacation.

We rode horses twice a day and ate like royalty. I gained 5 pounds which I figure isn’t that terrible all things considered.

We normally have a big dance at the end but because we were a little bit early there weren’t many others staying with us at the ranch.

One night we all went down for a shindig and hung out for a couple of hours. The entire family joined us for a while and then they began to fade away group by group.

But not us!

We we’re on vacation so we stayed out until midnight!

That’s a big deal for old people ha, not to mention the fact that we had a time change, so in all reality it was 2:00 at home! Go Hayduk’s!

My cousin Katie loves to stay out late and get crazy with us! Look at us πŸ’œ I love these pictures and these memories! I love reliving them as I write to you this morning.

Around 11:30 that night I decided it was time for a picture with one of our favorite wranglers Jacob!

This promptly sparked an idea inside my mind! I told Jacob to find someone to take our picture, so he picked Hector who is also one of our favorite wranglers.

It’s fairly late and not many people are left at the party with us. We were feeling pretty good so I decided to see how many people we could get in our picture.

The person taking the picture had to go find someone else to take a new picture with them in it.

So I said “Hey Hector go find someone to take our picture and you get in here with us!” And he does just that and he joins our picture.

Meet Hector friends! He asked Charlie to take our picture and Charlie was one of our favorite hashers.

At this point I’m thinking to myself this is really working. I’m going to see how far I can take this.

So I say “Hey Charlie, go find someone to take our picture and you get in here with us!” And he does just that and he joins our group.

Meet Charlie friends!

At this point I’m seriously laughing so hard that I’m about to pee my pants. I told Jacob to tell Charlie to find someone to take our picture because I was laughing way to hard. Charlie went and got This adorable girl to take our picture next!

Her boyfriend was with her so at that point I told him to jump on in!

Who’s holding the camera now?

I have zero clues!

By this time, most of us that were left, we’re in the picture already, but we had drawn an interest from the others because we were having fun!

The laughter that ensued in between each picture is priceless!

Super cool kids πŸ’œ

We added 5 more kids to this picture all at once and clearly I’m in the midst of an important announcement! Ha ha ha!!!

We added 2 more kids to this picture! The guy in the back with his hat up and the guy beside him a hat!

The guy in the front is stealing the show but it’s ok because I’m loving every single minute of it.

So finally we’re down to only one kid who’s taking our picture and I feel so bad I’m like hold on you get your own individual selfie because we can’t leave you out.

And here he is the man behind the final photo. I know it’s a little blurry but that just means that it matched the night which was also a little fuzzy.

These kids make the experience a million times more awesome. I look forward to the ones we already know and I’m excited to always welcome the new ones.

May you learn to create your own shenanigans in life to reminisce about! May you learn to practice gratitude and love the life you’ve been given because tomorrow is never promised.

Thank you for reading


God Bless


I’m Baaaaaaaaack

Good morning friends

I am back and I missed you

Did you miss me?

We spent an entire week at a Ranch in Wyoming with 19 family members

My husband has been visiting this ranch since he was 8 years old

And I love being able to experience it with him as his wifey and sharing it with our beautiful daughter

When we’re at the ranch the days seriously all blend together

The bell rings 3 times a day

Breakfast at 7:30

Lunch at 12:30

Dinner at 6:00

We have a morning ride and evening ride on the horses and we get to play in between

Jon and I got to travel alone for the first time and we loved it

Every adventure is another memory shared together

Every picture makes me smile

And every story will be worth sharing

Take time to fill your relationships with love

Treat them as the special gift that they are

Guard your time and your heart

Not everyone is aloud in πŸ’œ

Taking a break from life

We are taking a break from life. If you’ve never done it I hope this encourages you to do so.

I’m not telling you to ride a horse all week, but do something different than you always do.

My family is out west for a week! While there’s some country in Ohio, this is a little bit different. The only cars that I hear come in the form of a golf cart or a 4 wheeler.

The only other sounds I hear come from animals and I must admit that I absolutely love it.

Our minds need a break from the non stop going, thinking, working and doing. We are creatures of habit that succumb to the rat race of life.

Until we learn a new way to live! Take the time to live a life that you’ve created versus living a life that has you running around in circles.

Stay tuned for more from the West

Finding Presence

Good morning beautiful souls

I am writing to you from the beautiful state of Wyoming this morning!

This Ohio girl welcomes a break from the rigorous day to day to routine that I left behind.

There will be no TV’s this week and I don’t care because I don’t even watch TV! But thank God for the Wi-Fi because I do still have a business to run from my phone!

My time will be scheduled and split between writing and reading and riding and having fun!

While the beach is my normal vacation I love this one just as much! I won’t be able to walk after a couple rides in the mountains but I’m excited to meet me bourse for the week!

I hope you have a blessed Sunday and I thank you for stopping by


God Bless


National Best Friends Day Love My Bit*hβ€’s πŸ§šπŸ»β€β™‚️

Sister hood is the most powerful force for women’s health! I love my tribe, and I could never survive without them!

I’ve always known that I’m better with ladies in my life! They feed a part of my spirit that no one else can! It’s tribal all right and I love every minute of it!

I surround myself with several different kinds of ladies. From family to friends to clients to teammates, I love my girls!

We raise them strong and fearless and with a little bit of sass!

I spend time with my friends every single day, week, month, and year because I love them and they keep my ass in check!

If you don’t have at least one tribe then you are missing out! Some girls I party with and some girls I make money with, some girls I cry with and some girls I joke with and some girls I do all the above and more with!

Some girls God blessed me with and some girls I’m lucky enough to call my family.

Other best friends have been around for eveahhhhhhhhhhhhπŸ’œ like over 20 years and we share lots of crazy stories and inappropriate nicknames I can’t type here

I think we should celebrate best friends every day and hopefully I do

But today my blogs for you bitches I love you

Signs of summer

I love summer because I love warm weather! I leave for a Western Vacation very soon so over the last week I made sure to spend lots of time with those I love!

My daughter left yesterday with her cousins and grandparents and we will meet up with them soon!

I love my people! They are my thing πŸ’œ

I love pictures as much as I love people!

For those of you who don’t like my picture taking I tell you one day your gonna thank me for capturing all of these memories!

I could spend my entire life writing, reading, spending time with family and friends and taking pictures.

We took our grand baby to the “beach” for the first time!

Painted the deck at my friends so we can use her pool all year long!

Weddings πŸ’œ

Baby bunnies in our back yard!

Spent time with my girls πŸ’œ

Had our first dip in the pond (I should say they not our) ha ha

Learn what’s truly important in life πŸ’œ and then make time for it

I think this summer will be one of the best ones yet because I’ve learned to be still and listen to my heart πŸ’œ

Our brother loves us I promise!

Celebrated my girls 40th birthday as she continues to kick cancers ass!

And summer hasn’t even officially started yet!

I am thankful

I am blessed

My heart is open

I’m worthy of love and abundance

Thanks for stopping in and reading my blog friends


God Bless


Why Does it Matter Who You Hang Out With It? (I’m yelling this)

Why does it matter who you hang out with?

Because you my friends are the sum of the 5 people you spend the most time with!

πŸ§šπŸ»β€β™‚οΈIf all of your friends are victims of their own lives then you will also be a victim of your own life

πŸ§šπŸ»β€β™‚οΈ If all of your friends are greedy, you will also become greedy

πŸ§šπŸ»β€β™‚οΈ If your friends are all gossipers, you will spend your time gossiping

πŸ§šπŸ»β€β™‚οΈ If all your friends think life sucks, you shall also feel as though life sucks

πŸ§šπŸ»β€β™‚οΈIf all your friends are negative you will be negative

πŸ§šπŸ»β€β™‚οΈ If your friends spread kindness, you will become kinder

πŸ§šπŸ»β€β™‚οΈ If your friends take risks on themselves, you will learn how to take a risk on yourself

πŸ§šπŸ»β€β™‚οΈIf your friends see the cup as too big or too small then you will also see the cup the same way

Energy doesn’t lie if you want to change your life change who you spend time with πŸ’œπŸ§šπŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

My friends will tell you that the cup is already big enough because that’s how I see life




Awakened living

Thank you for supporting my dreams


God Bless
