5 Things I Allow Myself To Enjoy

Whether you work 80 hours a week at the office or you’re a stay at home mom who is always on the go you should always make time for the things you enjoy.  I know it can be hard to press pause on the world around you but you NEED to do it!  It’s funny how taking a few minutes to do something you truly like to do can improve your mood and even your productivity.

Iced White Mocha Copycat

Hi, I’m Erin and I’m addicted to Starbucks.  😉 But seriously…  I basically keep them in business.  But as everyone who’s ever been to a Starbucks knows…it ain’t cheap!  I would swing by the drive thru every single day if I could but money doesn’t grow on trees so I had to come up with something else.
