Perfect Moments

Happy Friday! This quote is so true. We just celebrated my middle daughter's 10th birthday. It made me realize how many beautiful moments I get to spend with my children each and every day. Even if they are small some day they will be big things and I will remember them.

So, cherish all the wonderful "small" moments you have with  your children and cherish the big ones as well. They all grow up way to fast.

Finding My Niche

Lately I seem to be searching for everything. My niche is just something I can't seem to come by easily. I would love to have a complete niche for my blog and I need a niche for my career. I am so miserable at my job. I had a niche for work but then I had my four daughters and lost the career all together. Now, I feel like I am just running around trying to make something fit. 

Do you have your niche? Do you know what your career path is?

Gwen Stefani #ThisIsWhatTheTruthFeelsLike #GwenO2O

I think it’s been almost 10 years since Gwen Stefani released a solo album, but you’d never think it, since she seems to have eased back into recording from her heart and soul as if no time has past at all. A lot has gone on since then and it shows in the both thew quality of her lyrics and the soul of her music. Clearly, Gwen channeled her heartbreak into the new album, as she recently admitted that her divorce nearly killed her. Despite that heartbreak, though, this is a strong and true body of work that transcends standard pop fare and captures what she does best: craft raw, honest and emotional music that will always be relatable and memorable.

Track listing:

  1. Misery
  2. You're My Favorite
  3. Where Would I Be
  4. Make Me Like You
  5. Truth
  6. Used To Love You
  7. Send Me A Picture
  8. Red Flag
  9. Asking For It
  10. Naughty
  11. Me Without You
  12. Rare

Note: There are four bonus tracks on the album available at Target:

  1. Rocket Shit (Target Exclusive)
  2. Getting Warmer (Target Exclusive)
  3. Obsessed (Target Exclusive)
  4. Splash (Target Exclusive)

Some of my personal favorites include “Asking 4 It,” which features a great duet with Fetty Wap; “Send Me a Picture,” which manages to capture the fun and urgency of trading erotic photos with your lover; and “Me Without You,” with its memorable lyrics that conjures up feelings that go with the newness of heartache and betrayal.

As far as I’m concerned, Gwen doesn't disappoint with this latest effort. She has so much emotion in each song, she apparently had to wait a few years to gather enough drama to draw upon for her music! The whole album features a broad range of songs stylistically, but somehow it all works. It’s an excellent quality to the recordings here, where lots of time was clearly spent producing this album. In fact, I can’t wait until the next one!  Looking to buy her album now? Go to either of these links and purchase it today!

I Lost A Friend Today

Happy Easter! I hope this day was blessed for you and your families. We had a beautiful day here in Illinois. It finally is starting to feel like Spring. All four of my girls enjoyed their day and for that I am blessed.

I also got some sad news today. Today I lost a friend. The news just spread a few hours ago but I am still in shock. I went to college with Tony and he was the most kind, generous and giving person I have ever met. He was a mere 45 years young. 

All death impacts us in one way or another, but this one really seemed to hit home for me. I guess because I am only a few years younger than him and he was just too young.

Tony's death made me realize that I am not grateful enough of what I have. I need to stop worrying about everything and enjoy what I have in the moment. I am blessed to have a strong marriage of 18 years and four beautiful, healthy daughters. I am in a bad place with my job right now but I should be grateful that I have a job that offers me benefits that I can take care of my family with. My health is good and I need to start taking better care of myself by eating better and getting my weight down. I need to be around for my baby girls.

I have so much to live for and so much to be grateful for. It is just a shame it takes a death for me to take a step back and realize as much. Life is so precious and we just aren't guaranteed anything.

I have to wrap up. My youngest is asking me to snuggle with her on the couch and this is something I can't pass up.

20 Things Parents Of 4+ Will Understand

Being a parent of four is quite a challenge. But, if you are a parent of four or more you will completely understand the following list:

1.  You are never alone- the bathroom, your bedroom, the grocery store, you name it and you will never be alone again.

2.  Laundry is a struggle of it's own- having six bodies of clothes is close to impossible. There is ALWAYS laundry to do.

3.  Screaming is normal- The first and second child is normal when they scream. They yell, you yell that is how it works. Come the third and fourth child it just becomes the norm.

4.  Expecting the worst- When you hear, "Mom, guess what?" You automatically just assume the worst. Everything becomes the worst case scenario.

5.  The house is  a war zone- Living with four kids is like living in a frat house. The mess, the laundry, the noise, the chaos.

6. No one can ever decide on what TV channel to watch- Having so many different ages makes picking one show quite impossible. There is always fighting in my house over this. There is not enough TVs in the house to keep everyone happy.

7.  You have to buy four of everything- Christmas, Easter, Valentine's Day just to name a few. Shirts, socks, underwear, how can you only buy for one. You always have to make it even and buy for four.

8.  There is not point in buying any electronics- Not only do you have to buy four of everything but you can never keep up with the latest and greatest.

9.  The grocery bill costs more than life itself- Feeding a family of six is like spending one whole check on one grocery shopping trip.

10.  You can have four favorite kids- It is hard to have a favorite. So, like I tell my girls they are all my favorite.

11.  Alone time isn't a thing- EVER.

12.  Slepp is rare and when you get it it's like heaven- There always seems to be somebody up who needs something.

13.  Work is mandatory- I would love to be a stay at home Mom. There is so much going on every single day but, unfortunately the bills add up and working is a must.

14.  Your last born gets away with murder - If my first born did it I would freak out. By time the fourth one does it you don't even flinch.

15.  I have never seen so much toilet paper in my life- I have to buy more toilet paper in one year than you can imagine.

16.  You can never  have too much wine- Screw therapy. All I need is my wine.

17.  Being lonely is a good thing- There really isn't any such thing as being lonely. Being alone is rare.

18.  There are socks everywhere. Everywhere.- And they don't match!!

19.  Road trips are close to impossible- Getting everybody in one place at the same time is a funny one. Not to mention getting everyone to decide on where to go and how to pack for the trip. Being in the car is a whole other story. One wants music the other wants a DVD. Let's just say road trips are few and far between.

20. Being on time somewhere is just not gonna happen-Never ever.
