I feel honored Carisa asked me to be included in her Fit Mama series! I am a mom of two boys with a baby girl on the way. Our first son, Collin, was born premature and passed away 3 days after he was born. Ethan is an active, energetic, and sweet 2 ½ year old who constantly keeps me on my toes. Our baby girl is coming in November and we are so excited! Chris, my husband, works for Sorenson Capital, a private equity firm in Lehi, Utah.

Lasagna is my ultimate comfort food. I would always ask for it for my birthday dinner. Unless we were going out to eat, of course. I loved it when my mom made it because that meant I got a delicious meal without doing any work.

Chalk is such a fun medium for kids to be able to use. Chalk allows kids to be creative and to have a little freedom. Inside, you generally hear "Don't color on the walls, fridge, chairs, etc." Outside, with chalk, you can color all over the sidewalk, driveway... there are endless possibilities and its hard to run out of space to express yourself.

My husband and I love two things... We love to party and we love to eat sweets. Ice cream is one of our favorite comfort foods! It definitely helps us feel happy and excited about life even after we break (badly bruise) our tailbone... and by we, I mean "I" because Scott didn't fall down the stairs...

Hi! This is Carisa’s cousin, Sharlene. I am a mother of 3 rambunctious boys. In the last year I have learned so much and have become very passionate about fitness and nutrition. I have reaped wonderful results from living a healthy, active life. I made the decision and commitment to consistently exercise throughout the rest of my life! I hope to inspire at least one person to do the same. Allow me to share a little how I reached this point.

Have you ever made a homemade doughnut???
Growing up, my family had a tradition to make doughnuts twice a year for a very special occasion. I always looked forward to this event because all the men would go out for the night and all the women and kids would get together in the kitchen and make doughnuts. We made these light and fluffy doughnuts comparable to Krispy Kreme... Except homemade!!
