Please pray for 9 y/o's shortened life today. Aaron's Thinking Putty (think: gum) 'somehow' got in his newly faded hair and all over his blankets.

Google says to use alcohol. For me, obviously.

Hey Peeps!  Let's chat!  It's been a while since I did a #fridayintroductions and I've gotten some new followers...HEY Y'ALL!  So I thought I would take today to list 5 fun facts about me.
1) I love to laugh.  I truly think it heals the soul. 
2) I am so disorganized.  Like, I try to make it seem like things are all put together, but, girl, I am just masking the mess.  I tell myself it will get better once my littles are older.  But...WILL IT? 
3) I really dislike cold weather, and I was born, raised, and still live in IL (right outside of Chicago) BUT if I could live somewhere else...it would be WISCONSIN!  Crazy?  Right?  I just love it up there.  My heart is in Wisconsin.  My hubby is from Wisconsin.  And once he took me up there I fell in love...with the state, with the cheese curds, with the Packers! 
4) While I love all things girly (aka pink, glitter, unicorns)...I kind of think that I am a "dude" at heart.  Because I drink beer, belch, swear, watch sports, and generally just enjoy hanging with the boys more than girls.  Always have. 
5) I am a closet "add to cart" shopper.  As in, I have carts full of things I WANT to buy or WISH I could buy, but 8 out of 10 times, I never follow through with the SUBMIT ORDER button.  I talk myself out of it.  Then regret it and go back....and then talk myself out of it again. 
Thanks for staying with me if you read up to this point!  Can you relate to anything I shared?  Share with me in the comments!  I'd LOVE to hear from you!

I'd give you 3 guesses as to where I am...again....but you'd only need one. Plus I'm tagging it, lol  #NotEvenSorry

#HappyHour at #HopJacks -- I love this place amd I love this #bbqchickensalad  They've got some #kickass #strawberrylemonade, #salad, #fries, #macandcheese, #sandwiches, even #friedpickles!  I'll have to keep coming back to try #allthethings.

Its amazing that I manage to complete my work on time and maintain my GPA. This is what going to college as a mom looks like. Trying to edit a paper while being force fed pretend ice cream.

#toddler #momlife #motherhood #college #momswhodrinkandswear
They wrote a book about me...#momswhodrinkandswear #biography
#HappyHour at #HopJacks -- anyone ever been?! It's my 2nd time, and I'm going to have a hard time not getting the same #bbqchicken #salad because it was SO good last time.  They've got some #kickass #strawberrylemonade and I accidentally snapped a pic of a #strawberry #heart!

Haven't ordered yet... What do you recommend here?

I am thinking I will run it right in the beginning of April!  So make sure to follow me....or head to my VIP group on Facebook to stay in the loop! .

We all have that one friend… 
Today I am missing one of the absolute most difficult women in my life right now, although I had to change the time of things to make it so she wasn’t as late… she taught me it really doesn’t matter what people say or think of you. 
Westling season brought us together while I was down, this time of year is always the hardest without you by my side. ♥️ #friends #bestfriendgoals #loveyoubitch

Last day of IV steroid treatment!  Woot woot!  Reading a great book while I sit 🤓 #msfighter #multiplesclerosis #msawareness #momswhodrinkandswear
I'm over here still celebrating my 29th birthday...you know, because it's my birthday week...or even birthday month! ⠀
And this card is fabulous, because, well...I'm 29....again!  And I know lots of friends coming up who are also going to be celebrating 29th birthdays! ⠀
How YOUNG are you?  And do you have a friend who would get a good laugh out of this card? ⠀

#flexfriday y’all!  Who’s ready for the weekend? I know I am. We actually have a bye week for rugby which means my Saturday won’t be spent at the pitch! Instead I’m calling it self care Saturday and have both a nail and massage appointment 😆🙌🏼
Self care is so important whether it’s taking the time to soak in a bath, using your foam roller, or indulging in spa treatments. Girl it’s ok to #treatyoself 
Have a great weekend and make sure you take time for you!!

I wanted to play along with the challenge this month of #marchmeetthemaker 💕
If you are new here...hi! Hello! How are you?
If you’ve been here for a bit, hopefully you know a little bit about me!
I’m Colleen, the maker behind all the funny cards and mugs you see here! I’m a wife to a wonderful and supporting husband and a mom to 2 mostly wonderful kids! 😉 
I like to laugh. I cuss a lot (but mostly when the kids are not around) because sometimes swearing helps, and I enjoy alcoholic beverages from time to time (like margaritas, beer...especially Corona, and Mimosas). Oh yeah...and I run on coffee!
Tell me something about yourself!

I work a lot. I’m a single mom with two sons whom I have 100% of the time. So I work a lot. I work so we can have the basics just like most of you. I work so they can play rugby, the clarinet, the banjo, have chickens and cell phones. I work a lot so they won’t know just how broke we are. I know I’m not the only Mom who does this. So for a couple years when it got extra chaotic. When the busyness of working full time, going to school full time, and raising two boys on my own got to be too much, I responded the way so many of us do. I ate a fucking cookie or six. I drank wine every night. I dipped my hand back into the bag of fries from 5 Guys a few times too many. So I gained weight. I not only gained weight, but my stress level was maxed, and I felt like shit. My body was exhausted and lumpy. My mind even more so. I looked in the mirror and hated who I saw. 
So I changed. It was not immediate. I failed, a lot.  I gained more weight than I lost. And then I didn’t. Then something in me clicked. So I kept going, and I did it again. Well, except for on the weekends when it was still drinking and eating what I wanted. But I kept going. I kept going and that’s when the magic happened. 
The magic came with two things. I understsood that I was never going to become who I wanted to on the inside or outside unless I let go. And I found my tribe. I found what I needed. I found accountability and encouragement. I found leadership and friendship. I found a swell of people facing the same struggles and then some. I found strength I didn’t know I had, and sometimes that strength was in others. 
Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired? Are tired of the diets that work until life happens?  Are you tired of being a weekend warrior? Are you looking for your tribe? If so send me a message. I’ve got a few spots left in mine and I’m ready to have your back. Let’s step into your rest of your life together today.

Inquiring minds want to know...What's one funny quote/meme that is just so you? ⠀
I was sucked into the vortex of Pinterest the other day and found myself laughing and relating to soooooo many!  I'm gonna share a few of my faves and hopefully you'll do the same!⠀
Also, I was feeling silly today, so I thought I'd share some extra silliness with my peeps! ⠀
⠀
So here is me in a nutshell using quotes/memes.⠀
-- Do you ever go out and then while you are out think...this is exactly why I don't go out?⠀
⠀
-- Didn't leave home today.  It was too peopley out there!⠀
⠀
-- I have two moods....1) Constant panic and worrying about everything or 2) YOLO ⠀
⠀
I could go on and on!  Share some of your faves with me! ⠀

It’s 6:50 am and I’m drenched in sweat from my leg day workout. It’s 6:50 am and I’ve done 30 minutes of personal development, ate a meal, and completed my workout.  It’s 6:50 am and I don’t want to crawl back into bed anymore because I’m energized and ready to conquer the rest of my day. For me the hard part is done. I understand struggle. I understand wanting to hit snooze and roll over. I understand saying ‘I’ll do it later’. I also understand that 9 times out of 10 ‘later’ never comes. I understand busy and being over extended, I think k every mom does. I’m a single mom who goes from 5 am to 10 pm every day. I understand feeding your kids at 930 pm because you’re just getting home from some sort of practice. I understand thinking it’s easier to ‘just grab something on the way home’. I understand feeling like you just keep running faster on that hamster wheel to nowhere. 
But on January 1, 2018 I made a commitment to me. I decided that amidst the chaos and hustle I’d find a way to put me first. I realized that my children would not only see that commitment, but understand and learn to respect it. I decided the sacrifices that came with it would serve me better than the meaningless gratifications would. I can watch Netflix when I’m old. I can give up the mind numbing Facebook scroll. I can reward myself with sleep, sweat, and achievement instead of wine and cookies. I can do this because I DESERVE THE BEST!!! I DESERVE GREAT THINGS. I AM WORTHY BEING A PRIORITY. This is not overnight thinking. This is something I constantly have to remind myself. This is something a tribe of people help remind me of daily. Are you ready to put you first? Are you craving that understanding of worth? Do you need that reminder daily? Let me help you see that you too ARE WORTHY OF BEING A PRIORITY!!

Are you craving that understanding of worth? Do you need that reminder daily? Let me help you see that you too ARE WORTHY OF BEING A PRIORITY!!
You ever have a case of the Mondays on another day of the week? That’s how today started for me. Someone’s loose dogs woke me up in the middle of the night. I slept fitfully after that and ended up over sleeping.  Thank the Toms for my food alarms! So, my morning started off rushed and frazzled. I hate that. I pressed on. It was cardio day - Ugh!!! My pants kept falling down and my shirt kept riding up. My feet wouldn’t stay on the damn sliders. Plus it’s shark week (ya feel me ladies). Like come on now!! It’s just been one of those mornings. It’s evenening our now. I’m feeling better and ready to go about my day. Why? Because I pressed on. I pushed play when I didn’t feel like it. I pushed play for two reasons, first is because that’s what serves me and my goals. Saying I’ll do it later, knowing I won’t have the time, does not serve me. Secondly, every morning I meet a group of ladies virtually and we press play together. I know that if I don’t show up they are going to hold me accountable to that. I know that I can meet them and share a laugh or a struggle. I know that each and every one of them know exactly what I’m feeling because at some point in their journey they’ve felt it too. I NEED that!! I need their smiles, their rants, their knowledge, and mostly their accountability. 
Are you looking for accountability? Do you need that extra push to make it happen? Would you like a tribe of support that has your back through the process? If so drop me an emoji below or send me a dm. I’ve got 5 openings left for our next accountability group. Join us to start to make your today a beautiful one that serves you!!

Stronger every day!!! Why? Because we do hard things. Stronger everyday because we push play when it’s easier to not too. Stronger everyday because we understand that the burn is temporary. Stronger everyday because I AM WORTH THE REWARD!!!! Happy Monday y’all. Go after it and get it done!! #nevermissamonday

Let's share some love today!⠀
Friday is here...and today...she's bringing me Margaritas!  Oh yeah!  I am counting down the hours until this evening.⠀

Oh and let me know if you love Margaritas as much as I do! :)⠀

The Valentine's Day rush is over.  So I am now looking forward to putting some new stuff out there.  If you are looking for a card to send someone, what are you looking for? ⠀
⠀
More cards with swear words, just to make someone smile? (you know, because swearing is sometimes my jam!)⠀
⠀
Funny friendship cards?⠀
⠀
More card sets?  Perhaps in themes?⠀
⠀
I'd love your thoughts!  Happy Thursday my friends!  The weekend is near!⠀

Lauren Hill sang, “how you gonna win if you ain’t right within?” What a statement of truth. How are you gonna win if you aren’t right within? This week I started phase 2 of a new program that began in mid January.  The first phase was great! I was prepped for it.  It pushed me mildly, but I didn’t wake up dying of soreness everyday either.  I did conquer moves I started off modifying, i lifted heavier, and I was successful in terms of weightless and inches lost.  The first three days of phase 2 showed me that phase one was a teaser for all the asskicking that was to come.  This mornings workout was a fuckin beast!  I was grunting and shouting pineapples to the rooftops. It was awesome! It was awesome because phase one and all that prep that came before helped me get right within. It was awesome because since I started my journey of health and wellness, I’ve learned that doesn’t only mean nutrition and exercise, but a renewing of my mind.  It meant changing the way I saw my self, food, life, commitments, and my own capabilities.  It meant reshaping my visions.  I’ve learned that along this never ending journey, I would always have moments where I needed to check myself.  That getting right within was a continual process of growth, self evaluation, and personal development.  So today, while I cursed Autumn as my shoulders strained and shook, I understood that all that pain is part of the process.  And y’all, I’m in love with the process. I’m achieving goals I didn’t know I wanted and I’m doing it sweaty,with my belly full, and surrounded with a tribe of some of the most badass women I’ve ever known.  And as I lied on my living room floor trying to catch my breath, I smiled, patted myself on the back and said, “that’ll do pig, that’ll do”.

Happy Valentine's Day from me and my crazy crew! ⠀
⠀
Valentine's Day happens to be our wedding anniversary too!  We'll be celebrating on Friday night though (because, KIDS) and I will be enjoying a margarita as big as my  head! (it's true, stay tuned, pics will be shared) ⠀
⠀
But for today...I am enjoying a "treat yo' self" day!  It's been a busy 3+ weeks full of orders and long days and late nights! #blessed ⠀
So today I am taking a VACATION DAY!  I plan on walking all the isles of Target and then heading over to TJ Maxx / Homegoods...with coffee in hand! ⠀
