Hi! I’m Lara! Thanks so much for stopping by! I am a mom to 8 wonderful kids, age 1 to 16 years old! BUSY! Four boys and Four girls…. some say we should go for a tie breaker…. the jury is still out on that one!
My husband Mike and I will be celebrating our 18 year anniversary this December! 18 years wow! Time has flown by! Mike is a principal of an elementary school and might I say, the cutest principal out there!
A little bit about me….
My life long dream as a kid was to be a motivational speaker and or a comedian, both are kinda far fetched. I use this blog to share a little bit of the chaos and fun of our busy life with 8 children. There are plenty of funny moments in this chaos filled life we have, and I hope a bit of motivation for you!
Motivation to find the joy, and to look for the fabulous in our lives that is always there, sometimes we just need to be reminded to look for it! That is my purpose!
SO in that way, yay for me! Lifelong dream coming true!
I love to read, I LOVE to Cook, I am always sharing my favorite recipes and helpful hints on making time in the kitchen easier. I love to go thrifting. (its tough to go shopping affordably with a family of ten hahaha) There are some amazing treasures out there! I love movies, although it is hard to remember the last time I sat and watched a movie from start to finish…. and that being said, during a movie I MUST have popcorn!
I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, my faith is my center and I am so grateful for all the blessings I have in my life, you can find out more about being LDS HERE.
I am one of 11 kids in my family! My sweet parents and all my siblings live in the same city as i do. That leads to lots of fun and lots of craziness! Make sure to check out our cousin sleepover nights!
Life is busy and full of chaos, I hope you come back here often! I want you to see the fabulous that is in your life everyday, and I know you’ll be able to if you just look for it. So check back often for recipes, great ideas to make life easier, some crafts and lots of joy!
Our family Aug 2015!
They just the greatest kids…….. and Athena our dog, had to be in at lease one picture!
My family, all 13 of us!! I love being part of this family! Seven girls, four boys… my mom and dad are saints!
The love of my life, Mike, I really do love him more every day! Funny how quickly 18 years has flown by….. can’t wait for the next 80~
I started this blog to share joy and happiness, I hope that is what it does! Feel free to contact me with any questions, comments or just to say hi!
