Road trip essentials for moms and kids!

trip2

This summer consisted of a lot of traveling for The Ashmores! When you have kids you can’t really pack light anymore. Those days are gone. The more kids you have the more stuff you need to take. That’s just the truth. I always leave the house wondering “What if I forgot ______!” or ” Did I pack the _____?” I really just should make a checklist before I leave the house to go anywhere! I always seem to forget at least one…

blessings

At least for me these words make me cringe.   Yesterday I was on my phone way too much in front of Ainsley… which is something I am constantly struggling with. She said this ” Get off your phone mommy!” She doesn’t say that to me ever and it really hit home. I DO not want my daughter to remember me always having a phone in my face.

A Summer dress and a good night’s rest!

Dinner, date night, summer dress

Date nights, what are they? Haha just kidding, kind of. As a busy mom I don’t want to lose sight of my marriage. I firmly believe working  on your marriage is a constant goal of mine and it also brings me joy. My marriage must be a priority…. over my children. Jerod and I need alone time, away from our kids. Do we still talk about our children? Yes, but we are by ourselves. We had the opportunity to visit  The Westin at The Woodlands and…
