Keep running out of bathroom storage space? The first step to creating order is removing any excess clutter in your cramped bathroom

You might be ready for the season, but is your bike? 
http://www.way2goodlife.com/2014/04/huffy.html
It is finally warmer outside and I am so excited to get my bike out of the dark basement and onto the big road. But wait, I might be ready to go, but my best friend-bicycle doesn’t seem up the part. The tires are flat, the seat doesn’t seem right, and don’t let me get …

Story

Keeping family active without going crazy
Introduction
If you want to keep moving, join me and my family on our journey. Kids should not be slowing you down - they should motivate you to be active. I love riding my bike and I take my kids along. I make healthy food choices most of the time, and my kids know the difference between everyday food and sometimes food (most of the time?). Full-time working and blogging - I am working hard on finding balance. Learn more about me
