About Jennifer Todryk
Hey there! I’m Jenn.

Things get a little loud and chaotic over here from time to time. I blame the three child beasts ... and Mike is loud too. But, I hope to bring you nothing but happiness, inspiration, good home decor and only the comfiest clothing recommendations because, who really enjoys pants .... ? And most importantly a good laugh. I hope you laugh a lot… even if it’s at my expense.

Currently Watching:

  • Good Morning Show: We finished this show and it’s SO SO SO GOOD! A must watch, in my opinion. I was so sad when we had no more episodes to binge.
  • Aaron Hernandez Netflix Documentary: This is real life crime about the NFL player who was convicted of murdering people. Obviously, sad but interesting if you enjoy watching true crime.
  • We just started the AppleTV show SEE last night. It’s strange but oddly entertaining. It’s about the world in the future after a plague has made anyone who survived blind. So no one can see NUTHIN. There are fight scenes and everyone is blind and swinging weapons. It’s bizarre. I’ll keep you posted.

Currently Reading:

Ingredient labels on food right now, that’s about it.

Personal Updates:

We are really trying to solidify all final details on coffee shop renovations. It’s been a year in the making and we are BEYOND ready for it to be done. I am sitting here at the shop typing this and I am very excited to have a shop that looks like ME. If that even makes sense. I am ready for it to represent my style rather that sea-foam colored walls and outdated light pendants. While it doesn’t look awful the shape that it’s currently in, it’s just not “me” and my style so we are pumped for a change!

We are all just trying to get HEALTHY. This has been a couple rough weeks for us but it was bound to happen. It’s the first time we’ve ALL been sick since becoming a family of five… all except Mike. He didn’t get Flu, isn’t that ridiculous?! It was a good thing that he didn’t because he took care of all of us!

As far as personal reflection: I am really trying to focus on my own health after experiencing this Flu plague, something that I have been slacking on. Honestly, it’s been something that I haven’t even thought about at all lately. Being a mom to three small kids doesn’t leave much time to think about your own health and that’s not good. They need me healthy or this family ship won’t float! I’m doing this in baby steps, which seems silly, but I’m slowly integrating healthy habits back into my daily schedule so it’s just a little less overwhelming. So far in January, I have worked out 3-5 days a week from home, keeping track of water consumption, and I am remembering to take my vitamins. Next month I will continue these things but add in more vegetables as snacks. I feel like if I just start doing ALL THE THINGS at once I’ll end up right back where I was. So, small baby steps, slowly adding in healthy habits 🙂 I feel like I went WAY off track in November because of my focus shifting to all things holiday and hosting all of the events! I think most people tend to slip into not so great habits around the holidays, but that’s what January is for, getting yo’ butt back in gear!

Have a GREAT week, friends!

  • My husband also named Mike never gets sick either! Their immune systems are so much better than ours and I’m positive it’s because we gave ours to our children. Glad you’re back!
  • Does Mike usually get sick? I ask because my husband doesn’t, but he is a carrier!
  • Working out 3-5 times a week is great Momma!That’s the hardest habit for me to get into. (Mommy to 3 young ones too) Do you use videos or just do your own thang? And yes! Taking care of YOU is so important...we keep everyone alive! Keep up the good work!! ❤️
  • Hello Jen, can you tell me if you have ever ordered a kids style microscope for Von? We have a soon to be 8 yr old grandson who is interested in Science and was looking for a birthday gift. Thank you or anyone else out there for your help! Love following you and your sweet family!!
  • Love everything you do!
  • Didn't get a chance to watch the Mantle YouTube until today. What a fantastic job you did. I am impressed with the rationale behind why you place things in certain spots. I have a sense of that and really appreciate how you verbalized it. As far as getting healthy, I think your idea of baby steps is right on! Don't overwhelm yourself and have a plan! I enjoy your work so much and, of course, LOVE your humor as well as goofball Mike's
  • Your mantle update is my inspo! I'm trying to get my mantle in order. Everything seems naked now that Christmas is all put away. *sigh* Sending you all good health juju.
