Remember the days when you’d spend hours on end playing with those little dolls we call Barbies?

Nothing better than pretending to BE something we’ll never live up to, with those perfect long legs, tiny little waist and perky boobs.
…and we wonder why we grow up with body image issues.


Well, besides the fact that I felt inferior to these plastic toys, I never got sick of dressing them up, setting up the house and playing out a life of glamour and ease. With nothing more to do than try on beautiful evening gowns and brush long locks of gorgeous hair.

Here’s a short video for your enjoyment :)

Oh how I love that show. It’s amazing to see what the body is actually capable of.

The other day I was looking through my year book and found this picture.

Nice how I’m the ONLY one not paying attention.

This picture brought me back to those high school days. Boy, do I have some funny stories to share.

Watch this little video I made and you’ll see what I mean.

Okay, here is the video for those of you who are interested in the Wanna Be Balanced Planners. Unfortunately they are all sold out at the moment, but I’m working on getting more and making a few enhancements. They should be ready within the next week or so. I’ll keep you posted.

 A few weeks ago my friend Sarah asked me to come speak about Balance at a local moms group called M.O.P.S, which stands for Mothers of Preschoolers. They get together periodically over at the Salt Lake City Capital Church, it provides an opportunity for mothers of infants and young children to build connections and find support from other moms. If you’d like more information you can contact Sarah.
Anyway, I was excited about the opportunity and spent the last few weeks preparing for it. The night before I was supposed to speak, of all nights, MY POWER GOES OUT.  Sean was out of town for the weekend too! So I scrambled around in the dark, gathering all the things I needed and went over to a friends and spent the night there. Oliver was not happy about sleeping somewhere other than his crib, so I was up with him until 1:30 am. I had to get up early the next morning for the presentation, and somehow I managed to make it there on time. I put together a little video of the event, sorry it’s a little long, but it was hard turing a 30 min. presentation into 6.
