We're totally getting Hitched :)

This has been such a crazy summer for us!! I touched a little bit on it, but man did I barely reach the surface! Not only did it just start getting warm here, but we have been SLAMMED busy!

This year, Aaron is on the board for Grants Pass Pop Warner which is a total {dream come true} for him. Because of that, football has taken up every ounce of our spare time since the beginning of baseball season... yeah, I meant baseball season! We have had a coin drive, gear distribution, meetings and now finally [CONDITIONING WEEK] Man oh man has it been crazy.

Somehow in the middle of all of this madness, we have found time to go on the boat, swim, play baseball in the yard, get our chores done, see Auntie Tia and Uncle Seth, and get some pretty amazing  engagement pictures taken. {Thank you Traci Buck!!}

Tomorrow is the last day of conditioning week, and I'm excited and sad all at the same time. All of this work and it's over! I can't imagine what my wedding is going to be like!! All of this work for only one night :)

Please, let me know how your summer is going! I would love to hear all about it! (I need some pen pals to keep me busy)

Love you all

No no, not my marbles. I think those are gone for good! When you have 3 kids like I do, and they are all in every single activity known to man kind, you not only lose your marbles but you lose just about everything else that pertains to you as a person.

Since time is of the essence [and I never have any of it] I just HAD to share...
I found this product, and I fell in {love} You literally don't have to scrub your toilets for MONTHS! I'm not kidding you! The problem is, the stores around me stopped carrying it. They carry other products by that company but not this one. Are you ready for it?? Are you SURE????

I'm not even sure as to how I came across this in the first place, but now I can't live without it! I have a ton of minerals in my water so the bowl is always orange or pink or whatever, and like most people... I HATE scrubbing the toilet. So I don't! 

I hope that you try this out, because I just know you are going to love it as much as I do! I mean seriously... no more toilet scrubbing... HALLELUJAH! 

I hope you have a wonderful day. Smile often and Love always.

The Inspiration Tree: Some Thoughts On Love

If you are ever feeling down on yourself, and you feel like the world around you is caving in..... I have a WONDERFUL blog for you to read! Just remember that when you smile at the world... the world smiles back :)

The Inspiration Tree: Some Thoughts On Love: "[ Submitted by inbedallday , visit her tumblr :) ] Before anything else we need self-love. Otherwise we won’t feel we have anything to of..."

Time for Livin

Remember a couple of weeks ago when I said I didn't know what I wanted to be when I [grew up]?!? Well, it's summer time and there's no better time to grow DOWN!

So far, we haven't had much of a warm summer but that hasn't stopped us from having fun! My kids have only been swimming ONE TIME... yeah that's exactly what I said... ONE TIME!!! Not to mention, it was freezing! Luckily, my kids aren't scared of being a little chilly! They are just like me when I was a kid. {OH, and their dad too!} Nothing could keep me out of the water. :)


Even though it was cold, I had a blast watching their cute little lips shiver as they are running around to the diving board to jump in "Just One More Time"

There has also been a TON of baseball playing at out house. These kids get stuck on a sport and man oh man. They have been outside every day that I let them from sun up to sun down. Since the older kids have such an advantage over Dude, we decided to come up with a new Tuttle Family Game... Flag Baseball!!! It was a huge hit!


I would just like to add a Thank You to all of the people who help me raise these wonderful kids! When they say it takes a village, they aren't kidding! And for those of you who get offended by people parenting your kids, or those of you who let the kids do the parenting, I hope you wake up one of these days! I feel sorry for you. {I mean that in the most LoVING way} I was raised with a village as parents, and not because my mom and dad didn't care about me, but because everyone did, and I turned out okay. So, again, Thank You to everyone who loves me and my kids enough to jump in and help out. I get to enjoy life and my kids are wonderful because of you!

What do you want to be?

Do you remember sitting in class day dreaming about what you wanted to be when you grew up?! Well here we are, and... AND...

I know I'm not even in the second half of my life, [Shoot I'm only onto the second quarter of my life!] and I have a successful business doing hair, but I just feel like this isn't it. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely {LOVE} my clients and my salon and doing hair in general. The problem is, I'm not full! I'm not meeting my full potential. 

I hope I have enough of you following me now that you will take this journey with me to discover just who I am supposed to be. How about you?! (yeah! I said YOU) What do you want to be when you grow up?! Are you living your childhood dream? Are you... FULL????? I challenge, no, I straight up double dog DARE you to find that inner self that has been screaming at you. That little tickle that you just can't scratch... the movement inside of you that has been pushing you to your full potential but you just won't listen. 

I can't wait to see what unfolds in front of me! Not only of my own life.. but of yours too!  

It's funny because, there has been more than enough tragedy in the lives of the people around me. Everything from breakups to lost jobs, and I for one will not stand to let things like that take over my life. [and if you know me at all, I won't stand to let it take over yours either!] 

So you and me together! Let's stand up and grow up! :) 
I can't wait to see what we all become!


step 1: close your eyes and think of something that you have always wanted to do. ANYTHING. 
step 2: DO IT! 
step 3: tell me all about it :)

Don't forget to Love, Laugh and Live
