Beauty, babes (my babies), and ball (football)

I decided to start this blog because of my three loves......BeautyπŸ’…πŸΌπŸ‘  (makeup, fashion, name it.) Babes πŸ‘ΆπŸΌπŸ‘¦πŸΌπŸ‘¦πŸ»πŸ‘¦πŸΌ(aka: my four kiddos). They are my heart and soul.....and I feel pretty proud/lucky to have made such amazing little people. Lastly, Ball.....short for football. It makes up a large part my life considering I am married to a football coach.......GO JACKS!!!πŸ’›πŸˆπŸ°πŸ’™

I have a degree in fashion marketing and Cosmetology Degree and spent years selling cosmetics (from Clinique, Lauder, and Mary Kay.) So, I like to think, I have some good input on beauty secrets and tips. Plus with four kiddos.....all mamas out there need quick ones.......right!! We are not some celebrity that can devote hours in a makeup chair.......this is real life people. I have learned fast everyday tips for us mamas on the go and I have plenty to share. Plus spending years around department store cosmetics and even being a consultant with Mary Kay I have learned there are great products everywhere.......even the Dollar tree😳(yes, I am serious!!!!) You don't have to spend a fortune to feel and look beautiful.

My four kiddos.....Quentin, Jaxton, Palmer, and our baby Maverick........make up a HUGE part of my life. I have good, bad, and in between days as mom of four boys......but I wouldn't trade the craziness of it for anything. I have learned a lot from my 13+ years of experience. From nursing, colic, teething, after school sports, and the list goes on. Actually I am still learning as I go LOL. I have had to learn to pinch pennies for cleats and find my own ways to work around a fussy baby. Being a mom is a tough job.....some of my closest friends are the ones that have kids......we just get the chaos.

Football. A sport I knew NOTHING about till I met my husband. One of the first things I said to him was that he chewed gum like a coach. It was love at first sight from that point on. Kind of like in Jerry McGuire when she says "you had me at hello." Corny... I know LOL. Being a coach's wife hasn't been easy. We are moving for the 9th out of state move in 14 years of marriage......its crazy I know....I have been called a football gypsyπŸ˜‰πŸˆ. From moving tips, packing tips, tailgating recipes, what to feed big groups (feeding 25+ offensive players at one time is no joke😳), and great tips on what to wear for don't always have to shop at the bookstore ladies. Have you ever seen how the women in the South dress for games.....they know how to bring it in the stands ya'll. Plus plenty of tips and funny stories from lugging around these 4 babes to all their Daddy's football games (thank god for fruit snacks and hot wheels.) Yes, this mom feeds my kids "fruit" snacks........ I didn't say I was perfect LOL.

So as I am lying here in my bed staring at a room full of boxes, with plenty more I need to pack πŸ“¦πŸ™„(BTW), and a baby that is waking up from a nap😫 (and not a good one at that)......I am thinking I am surely not busy enough why not start this blog. I think there may be someone out there that can relate to this or even find it helpful. From ball........and how you can try and do it all πŸ˜‰(or at least fake it till ya make it).


  1. Kimberly, This is awesome!!! We will miss you in Bozeman and follow your blog as you land in our new locale.
