Adriana Perez

I am an everyday mom who juggles with family and a full time career as a teacher.  I am blessed to have married an incredible man and we have five amazing boys (as well as 3 dogs).  I have a love affair with living a well balanced life...this incorporates fashion, health and fitness, cuisine, enjoying life and family.  Needless to say...I am always on the go, but each day brings new adventures and learning opportunities with my family that remind me how fortunate I am. 

Fashion/Beauty

I love fashion.  Who doesn't?  As a teacher, my budget dictates my fashion sense.  I love looking like a million bucks, but spending a fraction.  Who says you can't look good and not break your budget?   Being in my forties, a new interest in holding on to my youth has sparked.  I enjoy experimenting with affordable skin care and makeup that hopefully will help me slow down (or hide) the aging process.  

Fitness/Food

Two years ago I weighed 220 pounds.  After giving birth to 5 boys in six years, my body (and mind) was pretty beat up.  Through continuous hard work and dedication, I have lost over 50 pounds...and counting.  Food and I used to have a very unhealthy relationship.  I'm not blaming the food for my past weight gain, I blame myself for that.  By cleaning up my diet and eating real food, I have learned to have a healthy relationship with food and this new relationship has contributed lo my weight loss...not to mention that my family has benefited from my dietary changes.

Family/Fun

My family is my first priority.  Being a mom to 5 boys, my life is filled with excitement.  I strive to give my family  fun, budget friendly entertainment that always puts a smile on everyone's face.  I have dedicated my life to raising five awesome boys who will one day become responsible adults.  I strive to use every day activities as teaching moments.  I teach my five boys life lessons every time an opportunity arises.  My goal is to raise five well-rounded, happy boys that are eager to learn and can problem solve...while having fun, of course.


 
Our mothers give us so many gifts. They give us the precious gift of life, of course, but they also leave treasured lessons that can guide us along our journeys even when they are no longer with us.
