Have you ever seen the mom shirts that say, "Fueled by coffee. Sustained by wine"? Yeah, that very well could have been my motto. I've loved the taste of coffee since I was a kid and wine, well, do I really have to make a case for it? That being said, I h...

I don't know about you, but sometimes I get in a chicken rut. Chicken is a great source of protein and I usually make three or four chicken breasts at the beginning of the week to be able to put in salads, eat with veggies or, one of my favorites, cut it in strips...

Excuse The Mess Blog is a lifestyle and single mom blog with the goal to empower people to be the best versions of themselves. I want to share with you my love for food, travel, motherhood, my often times bumpy journey to be the healthiest version of myself inside and out and all the beautiful mess of my beautiful life. I believe it’s not about finding yourself, it’s about giving yourself permission to be yourself and learning to love every part, mess and all.
