About me…

I am a wife, a mom, a nurse, a ninja…among other things. I am also a Leo and an Enneagram 7, which explains a lot. I have serious FOMO and want to experience life to the fullest so I have “dabbled” in all kinds of things throughout my lifetime. I will discuss those here. I hope you find some insight, a new hobby, or at least a bit of entertainment here. Thanks for visiting!

He had recently started and was […]

  • Dabbling in salsa dancing…

    I think I may have been Latina in a previous life. I love Latin culture. I realize there are so many different aspects of Latin culture, but I seem to love it all. I love the bright colors, the music, the language, the food, the people…but mostly the dancing:) I have always loved to dance. […]

  • Dabbling in a resort with a kid’s camp…

    Yes…hell yes…if there is a kid’s camp…immediate yes. I should just end this post here. Awhile back my husband and I were discussing our plans for fall break. It was complicated because we have 5 kids, all with different activities going on and we realized getting away for fall break was looking difficult. We decided […]
