As the mother of two girls under 4 with a third due in March, I'm definitely in need of more balance in my life. This year, my goal is to try to live as much in the moment as possible. I will remind myself that the girls will only be little for a short time and that I need to enjoy this time as it is fleeting.
Here is a picture of me in my newest PLM shirt with my oldest daughter on the day of her very first dance recital!

Happy New Year to you!!! Yes, I have a goal of finding balance of motherhood and just a little bit of "me time" in the form of exercise.
As a busy mom of 3, there is a lot of guilt when I want to spend 30 minutes on the treadmill. I have recently moved my treadmill into the basement (aka playroom). I will hopefully be able to have them play independently for 30 minutes while I watch from the corner on my treadmill. Let's see how many times I will need to stop to break up a fight or put a toy together (haha). Really looking forward to the Spring to go back to our family bike rides.
Thanks for everything!

I am seeking more balance in my life by dropping the kids off at school and heading to the gym! I can escape to a world of sweat and destressing! My husband jokes that my PLM "Balanced Mom" shirt should say "unbalanced"!! ha ha Heres to a New Year of being Peaceful Calm Mom!
Here is a photo of me in one of my PLM tanks AFTER an hourlong Jazzercise class! Exercise certainly helps me stay balanced. I set a goal of at least 4 hours of Jazzercise per week this year (during the school year, of course)!
I love your shirts and hats!
I love your shirts and whenever I wear them I get so many compliments! I am seeking more balance in my life this year by limiting my cellphone time and computer and spending more time with my children and husband. Happy New Year!

This past year was full of changes in our family. We had another baby girl (our last one). This year is the year to get healthy and for our family to find a church in our new community. I love your shirts.they are so comfortable and I get so many compliments.
Happy New Year!

I am wearing my favorite PLM item and one of my strategies for keeping balanced in 2011 is having signed up taking knitting classes once a week in January and February to stretch my skill set, meet new friends, and enjoy a hobby that I find creative and relaxing.

This year I am seeking to bring more balance in my life by focusing on my financial life. I want to lead a less materialistic lifestyle and focus on what is really important - time with family and friends. I am keeping my eye on the big financial goals I have set for our family and try to focus less on the costly trends and possessions that seem to distract us all. I want to want less and be appreciative for what I already have.
I hope 2011 is a great PLM year!! Happy New Year!!

To find more balance this year, I am going to make sure I have enough time for me by maybe taking an hour to read a magazine or watch a show at night. I also want my husband and I have time together alone, because in 4 months we will have another baby to take care of. My mother in law moved closer,
so it will definitely be helpful to have someone to call to babysit. Lastly, I want to spend more time with my girls doing fun activities, so I am going to try to think of creative things we can do during the day.
LOVE your shirt-wear one at least once a week! :-) reminds me of what's important....my daughter!
one of my many new years resolutions is to CLEAN and KEEP CLEAN my closet! what an endless pit! how else can i find my plm shirts if i don't keep my closet organized? ;-)
happy new year plm!

I'm seeking more balance in my life by planning ahead. When I plan, I typically follow through. When I try to wing it, I flounder. As I make my plans (menus, workout schedules, playdates and activities, etc.), I hope to reduce stress and keep more balanced in all areas of life: exercise, meal preparation, my marriage, being a happy and fun mom to our 1.5 year old, Jack and my job as a journalist. Happy 2011!
Here is a recent photo of me wearing one of m favorite PLM shirts.
This year I will be seeking more balance in my life by spending more time with my family doing old fashioned non-computer oriented things. Reading, baking, cooking and just spending more time doing fun things and less time working and cleaning!
I'm going back to school not only for me but also for my family. In the process, I don't want to forget about them in the middle of everything so I plan on setting aside one evening every week, if not more, which I can dedicate just to my family. I plan to use this time to talk, watch movies, or play games. I also plan to have a date night with my husband every so often to make sure we are still on the same page and connected. Lastly, I plan to delegate responsibilities with the entire family. If we all can work as a team in doing chores around the house it should avoid burnout for me and result in having a happy family for all of us. Wish me luck!!!
PS. I took this picture when the snow started to fall because it was the first snow we had in Georgia on Christmas Day since 1993.
