My boys called this "Pizza Pasta". Kids don't lie about food. When its good it's good. A pretty tasty description of what happens when you're craving pizza but what you have in the kitchen is... 1 jar of organic Marinara sauce
1 lb of free range ground turkey cooked until brown and seasoned with garlic powder, smoked paprika and Trader Joes 21 seasoning salute
1 Large zucchini sliced thin
1/2 package of #eatBanza lentil penne pasta Cooked per instructions
1/2 package of #TraderJoes Italian blend of cheese (parmesan, asiago, mozzarella)
8x8 Pyrex baking dish
What I did 👇👇
Combine marianara sauce and cooked ground turkey. Start by spreading one layer of sauce/meat mixture on the bottom of the baking dish. Then layer the other ingredients. End with cheese on the top. Bake for 25mins until hot and bubbly. Sprinkle fresh basil leaves. · · · · · · · · · · ·
Saw someone ask today what is your "go to" self-care...my response was masking weekly and spending 15 minutes on myself in the morning. I become a less annoyed and more patient human when I can focus on myself for a hot second! If that's selfish so be it 💁♀️😉 Whatever it is that fills your cup, do it! No matter what others think. You do you, always!!! #boymom#weekinreview#makeup#selfcare#selfie
Mr. Martin and I saw this book when we visited one of the museums in Boston last Spring Break when we went to @whyartmatters NAEA. My mom must have ESP because she picked it up for us and it has been a bedtime story favorite along with the ‘No David’ books. #sadbabyanimals#boymom#nodavid#teacherlife
The ones when you’d sit with me as I drank my coffee and we’d watch the cars go by. I’d just talk to you about our day and what we were going to do. I covered you in kisses and you would give me the sweetest hugs in return.
I hope to never forget these sweet little moments with you, my baby boy.
Once upon a time I was under the impression I had to max out my Bowflex adjustable weights at 52.5lbs to feel STRONG AF. And then @jerichomcmatthews came thru with MELTCON and combo exercises that last for 1 min and I’m like ‘DAT BURN. WITH 8’s. OKKKUUURRR’. .
Instead of pushing ourselves to the limit to go heavy all the damn time, I love that this program uses less weight and lifting for more reps!!! Not only are we less likely to injure ourselves, but we can work on our muscular endurance while building strength at the same time. GIMMIE GIMMIE. .
Workout 29/100 ✅ And I’m searching for 5 new ladies for my SEPT SWEAT STUDIO. The BUSY AF girl. The I NEED CONVENIENCE girl. The I’VE FAILED OVER AND OVER girl. Sound familiar?! Yup, me too sis! So let’s freaking do this and make it a Sept. to remember!!!.
If you’re ready to rid the 🐓💩 and get dem titties up, drop and emoji below or slide through my DM’s. Progress not perfection and the hardest part is truly starting. PROMISE. Ps-if you’re intimidated by MM100, there are a plethora of other programs to choose from 😉

what if everything you’ve ever wanted, is behind a door you never thought you’d walk through?
I didn’t day dream about being a social media marketer when I was a little girl, but I did dream about being successful.
I didn’t predict I’d use my iPhone to bring in a six figure income, but I also had no idea how much the future would change.
I had no clue I’d be making 5 figures a month all while being a stay at home mom, but my plans for myself weren’t as grand as what the world had in store for me.
sometimes we put ourselves in a box of what we think life should look like, and we don’t even realize it. it’s only when we STEP OUT of it that we realize who we’re truly meant to be and what we’re truly capable of achieving!
I’m just an ordinary girl who decided to go for it and work for it, and gets to do things most people cannot do, because of it!
what if what’s standing in between you and a better life right now is simply your assumptions? your self imposed limitations? and your self limiting beliefs? imagine what could happen if you tore those walls down?
I am mentoring 4 new people this month to work off their smartphone with me! what if what I do, is what’s meant for you too? what if it changed everything for you, just like it has for me?
message me or text ‘OPPORTUNITY’ 315-391-1898 and let’s go! ✨
✨Heading into the week like✨ .
Had a super fun weekend with my boys and sister on the lake and even doing chores (whaaaaat?). Now trying to fit in 5 hours worth of stuff in to 1 hour and realizing no chance so will take on the week head on 💪🏻 .
Some advice, if you find yourself stuck in a position you may not be able to get out of, don’t give in and fall on your face, find a friend or find a different way out 👍🏻 🌈✨🦄
My son’s been working on his sourdough baking skills, and I get to be the taste tester 🙌🏼 his starter is mature now and the flavor or the sourdough is even better! It’s been so cool to learn all about the process of development, rising, resting, pulling & kneading; it’s like my kitchen has been turned into a science lab! His summer goal was to perfect the sourdough and master the pizza crust, he achieved both AND earned himself his very own Dutch Oven.
Proud Mama, go after those goals and smash them my sweet boy!
Now he’s working on making it to varsity swim, and nailing his AP classes.
So friggin’ proud I could cry. Both my boys, amazing. I love this boy-Mama life 💯
No #SundayScaries over hurrrrrr... I mean how could there be with this dough in the house 😜

Slow and steady. Super thankful for KidStrong and his ability to balance.
I had no desire to do much of anything today. I actually didn't even step foot out of my house today until I decided to go take an evening walk around 6:45. I'm glad I did though because it was such a beautiful evening! Sometimes I just need to talk myself into it and then I feel so much better. Wish I would've done it sooner! 😁🏃♀️ #evening#sundayvibes#motivation#fitmom#fitness#momofthree#boymom
I spent the entire weekend, literally the enTIRE weekend, 2 full days, cleaning up the top floor of our house. 2 kids bedrooms (which contained 4 kids “stuff”) and a bathroom. Purging and cleaning is great therapy. Mindless energy doing something I’ve been wanting to do for years. Things to donate to the Veterans, the human society, things to give to friends, things to sell. And also a time to reflect on my kids years...so many funny and bittersweet memories. Art work, notes, pictures, stories, autographs, some things I don’t care to share 🥴. It was emotional, yet hysterical. My goal this year is to finish up this house and get things in order. We have a LOT more to tackle, but we’ll get it done 🙌🏻✔️And the only boy left in the upstairs at the moment, gets a new diffuser 🌿 spearmint and citrus fresh is the current blend🌿. Now to resume normal life and work tomorrow....😆🤦🏼♀️
Sunday is basically perfection. It runs slow and without a schedule. All the family time makes my mama heart happy!
Today we played tourists in downtown Asheville and Waynesville, and had a blast. Started at the Pinball Museum in Asheville, and if you haven’t been... then you need to go! So much fun!!! Then we had a late lunch at Carmel’s and it was absolutely delicious! Finished our day with shopping downtown then scooted over to Waynesville for ice cream at @jackthedippericecream 🙌🏼

Mamas boy❤️ We’ve officially started our weaning from breastfeeding process and so far it’s going smoother than I thought it would! I’m always so embarrassed to tell people that I still breastfeed my two year old, but honestly I’m secretly so proud of our little journey. So thankful my supply lasted me this long and so thankful for the new turn our relationship is about to take!
Last night we laid on the couch and watched a movie and he didn’t even ask to breastfeed, he just cuddled with me! Ahh my mama heart!😭❤️
His newest, littlest, best buddy. Sometimes as a mama I can get overwhelmed when thinking of all the things I want to make sure we teach the boys and instill in them before it’s too late. Sometimes I find myself thinking “are we doing this right?” But then I look at this guy and know these boys will turn out just fine because he is the best role model and hands on dad there is, and if the boys learn even just a little from their dada they are going to turn out to be pretty darn good dudes. I always thought (still do) @jeffpetry26 would be the best girl dad, but I am reminded (x3) that he is the best boy dad. I can rest easy knowing these boys are going to be looking up to & learning from a hardworking, polite, loyal, thoughtful, generous, funny, respectful and loving dad their whole lives! 💙
