Just when I thought things couldn't get any busier in our CRAZY, BEAUTIFUL Blended Family Life, they did! 

Amongst all the usual shenanigans (aka memory making) of summer, we've decided to add few more things to our plate. Which is why things have been pretty quiet over here!

Today I thought I'd take a break from the madness and pop on and give you guys a bit of an update on everything that's been going... and tell you about some exciting things that are coming up for YOU this fall!!


I'll start off with the exciting news for YOU! Registration for the second round of The KICK-ASS STEPMOM Project has officially opened and the program is set to begin on October 5! You can check out all the details by clicking HERE!! 

If you're a stepmom who is craving some positive change in their Stepfamily World, this program is for you!! 

If you follow this blog, you know that once upon a time I found myself sitting on my bathroom floor, bawling my eyes out with a glass of wine, wondering what the heck I was thinking marrying a man with three kids. As in love as I was, I was in over my head. The type of support I was looking for was no where to be found, so I had to figure it out on my own!

Well, I've taken all the strategies that I used to get my ass off that bathroom floor (and all the mistakes I've made in the process) and created a program so that fellow stepmoms don't have to feel the way I felt! 

Even though I was blown away by the response from the first round The KICK-ASS STEPMOM Project... the second round is new + improved with additional content + additional ways to tap into all the greatness... I am confident that there is something for everyone!!

To give you an idea of how much of a game changer this program is, I'll share a little blurb from one of the fabulous ladies who completed the course!

“I highly recommend y’all get involved with the next KICK-ASS Stepmom Project... Since we wrapped up the inaugural project back in June, I’ve been in SUCH a better place with myself, my boyfriend, my stepson and even HIS MOM! Never would I have thought prior to the sessions that I would be able to think this clearly about our blended family situation. I frequently catch myself thinking in my head, “what would Jamie tell me to do in this situation?!?” She not only gets it and is easy to talk to, but the group classes turned into girls night that I looked forward to every week! Definitely worth the investment

If you're humming and haaaaing about joining, ask yourself this question. 

One year from now... 
will you be okay if things in your stepfamily
life are the SAME as they are now?  

If you're interested but not quite sure if it's for you, don't hesitate to contact me and set up a 15 minute Discovery Call and see if we are a good fit!



As I said in a previous post Our Shift In Mindset + Summer Goals this summer has been all about making memories! And make memories we have! Summer 2016 has been one for the books! 

My husband and I are soaking up time with the kids, because they seem to be growing up at warp speed! Soon they won't want to be making memories with us, they will be off making memories with their friends! 

But until then it's all about the road trips, boat rides, beach days and movie nights!

Here's a few of our favourite moments from this summer!


We are officially in renovation mode right now, our 6 week Kitchen Renovation has begun! 

I am not sure that I can even describe to you how excited about this renovation I am, but to give you an idea it's that "too excited to sleep" kind of excited!

One of my biggest "stepmom struggles" has always been moving into the house where my husband lived with his ex-wife. I always felt like I was living in someone else's home. Well really, I kind of was. 

I've never bought a house myself, never decorated a house myself... and these things, while they may not be important to others, are important to me!! But I couldn't very well come in and tell my husband and his three kids they needed to move because of my  insecurities... so I've done my best to make it feel like home. And as time has gone on, it has started to! 

Now, I've saved my pennies and am I'm finally able to do a major makeover! 

In the meantime, there is a lot of work to be done! My husband has put me in charge of this whole renovation... and well, let's just say I am a rookie flying by the seat of my pants! 

Check out what our kitchen looks like as I write this post! 


I probably should have found a place for all the crap before we started taking cupboards apart... oh well! You live, you learn! #thisisreallife

Anyways, that is all for now!

If you're looking for some more behind the scenes or want to keep up with what's going on over here, come follow me on Instagram! I'm jumping on the Instagram Story Train... and am hopeful that sooner or later I'll get the hang of it!    


And if we haven't connected on Facebook yet, come on over and join the fun!!
