We really should plan a trip to the pumpkin patch but I just love when we do absolutely nothing. .

Prepping for court in morning. .
.
Send the good vibes/prayers 🙏
.

The attorneys I’ve all spoken to, says he can’t get much lower and has nothing. 👍❤️
.

I asked for more time...hope this abuse ends now! It’s been 10 freaking years😭 (I don’t say this to speak ill and pin people against him. I speak truth, and raise awareness of how easy it is to fall in love with an abuser. It happens to many girls, especially from dysfunctional childhoods. There’s a cycle that keeps them in...I got out, and I’m no longer ashamed to admit it was me to!!! Also, men can be abused just as much. Not implying by any means that men are always the abuser!)
.
.
Life happens for me, and I know the universe has my back. 💯
.
.
Still, send prayers. Because I have worked so hard to be this damn healthy mentally...he doesn’t get to control my happiness anymore!!!

Stepmom. Bonus mom. Dog mom. Fur mom. I’m all kinds of moms to several little creatures every day. Maybe I’m not ever just “Mom” but I kind of like being different, especially when it gives me more cuties to love. 💜

Homemade soup night! Hopefully they all eat it because it’s loaded with veggies!!! #tonsofkids #blendedfamily #minestronesoup #fall #coldweather
It’s so easy to get caught up in the moment and feel it will last forever. Take a deep breath and know this is only a moment and not forever. You will move through this and look to brighter days ahead. In the meantime be sure to do something nice for yourself today. •••

Ruth had what it took to be a wife but she was not tapping into her purpose of wife. It wasn’t until she was helped by Naomi in what to do. I’ve often been called the Naomi of this generation because of how I’ve midwifed women into their next season. For years i have been blessed to help women all over the world. I’ve helped women tap into the gap between being single and being found. Women who have went through my various program are successfully dating, engaged, or married. This program is going to be so much fun because we won’t be speaking over the phone. We’ll be virtually face to face. We will dig into everything from wardrobe and even worship if we need to. This program is full of new exercises, tools, and solutions. I’m excited to Skype with you soon! DM me or email me for more info. #rachelgilder #lifecoach #spiritualadvisor

Yesterday was my 3 year wedding anniversary so today I’m celebrating 3 years as a family of 5. It’s not always easy being a blended family but we manage to have some fun along the way! #anniversary #millerneiman #blendedfamily #stepmom #stepdad #stepbrothers #family
Our house is louder and noisier than the average home. Pieces of the puzzle are missing and extra pieces are laying around waiting to fit in. A glimpse into a blended family of 8. Two adults and six children. His, hers, and ours. 
The last decade of my life have been nothing short of chaotic. Life lessons have taught me how to overcome even the most challenging obstacles. Perceptions have changed drastically. Turning 30 twisted the world into a quick reminder of how fast time flies and how short your life really is. I’ve learned to let go of things that are not in alignment with me and quickly move forward with what is. 
I could have chosen disappointment. I could have chosen failure. I could have chosen fear. These things would not have allowed me to move through divorce with a one year old. But I chose HOPE. I chose to be 100% in the present with my son. I chose to move on despite the cultures of society telling me I wouldn’t make it. 
I met my Husband and dove into an interracial marriage. Again, going against the cultural norms of being a Pakistani American Muslim woman. I’m not perfect, but making that decision has single-handedly changed my life forever. More details to come soon ♥️ #MuslimWoman

***Haul Alert*** H Mart is my home away from home 🤗

For those who don’t know, my husband is mixed with Black and Mexican and I am mixed with Korean and White. WE LUCKY I KNOW! We NEVER get bored of food in our home 😂

Hubby was craving some Bulgogi and Kimchi and we were running low on some Korean staples, so I had to hit up my FAVORITE Korean grocery store in the DFW area!

This will be a difficult evening for me (BECAUSE KOREAN FOOD IS LIFE) but I figured a way to incorporate my new lifestyle and still enjoy my culture.

PS the last photo is what I use in the shower to wash with, it’s my secret to soft skin ❤️ #blendedfamily #multiracialfamily #multiracialkids #koreanfood #koreanbbq #koreanpride #vsg #vsgcommunity #vsgeats #vsgjourney #vsgsurgery  #vsgfood #vsgsupport #vsgfamily #vsglife #bariatricsurgery #bariatricbabe #bariatricfood #bariatricsleeve #bariatriceating #gastricsleevetijuana #gastricsleevesurgery #gastricsleevecommunity #gastricsleevesupport

So true!!! There needs to be a reform, so many people struggle with this. You're supposed to have to prove yourself innocent. And prove someone is guilty. Why are so many exparte's granted on just an affidavit full of hearsay?

Me with two of the three little ladies in our family. The baby needed some love and sat sobbing but calming down through multiple group kisses. We took a picture. We are a triad, me a bit of past and present and them, the future. I hope they are tough but always love each other and know that I love them and their big sis! #triad #girltime #artislife #artistsoninstagram #blendedfamily #nofilter #nomakeup

Mamas you have GOT to get yourself this multi-vitamin for your littles.

Mainstream multis (looking at you Flintstones) contain excess sugars, tons of artificial dyes which can be linked to behavioral and other issues (Lydia breaks out in hives if she consumes anything with a lot of red dye), corn syrup, hydrogenated vegetable oils, carrageenan, artificial sweeteners LIKE ASPARTAME🤦🏼‍♀️.....BHT (a chemical cousin to BHA, used as a preservative. Has been seen to cause cancer in rats, and developmental and thyroid effects/changes in animals. Like, wut?) Yeeeeeesh. Why we gotta play like that. Why the HALE is all that stuff in the vitamins you are marketing TO MY CHILDREN? (Hint: It’s $$$ but that’s for another post 😉) Anyway. We LOVE, these MightyVites because to deliver these vitamins to my precious babes, they use nutrient-dense, whole food sources. Zero artificial dyes. Zero artificial flavors. Zero cancer-causing, endocrine disrupting junk that has no business being in anyone’s multivitamins. AND fully active folate instead of folic acid (this is super super super important!) If you want to grab some for your babies, mamas, send me a message, and I’d be happy to hook you up ❤️

:( Dear parents of teenagers and older.. I need your wisdom 
Is this normal? 
Please tell me this changes? And by what age? 
My kids "I love yous" always stops me in my tracks. I used to hear it everyday under 12 years old now I can call leave messages they dont pick up (only when they need money and a ride lol) every time they are at the other parents I rarely get an "I love you" or even a "goodnight" ...days can go by 😔 is this normal for 16/17 year olds? 
Please tell me this changes in time and by what ages? 
Feeling sad and detached ... I know I'm a good mom... ugh

Nothing more rewarding for a Coach then when the lightbulb 💡 for your your client comes on and they actually implement what you tell them to do. Then they tell others “This Stuff Actually Works” 🤷🏿‍♂️🤦🏿‍♂️

My little sister @sweetthaang22 is beautiful no matter how she wears her hair. But let’s be real, naturally curly hair can damage easy if you don’t have the right touch or product. So when Sabrina asked me for a good hairdresser, I was stoked to take her to #mynumberone @devonhairguru!
.
Devon turned her curly locks into a flowing mane vibrant with health. I had to grab a pic of her silk and shine. #ifyoudontknownowyouknow #irockwithdevon
.
Sabrina walked out glowing, and made sure to leave with one of Devon’s infamous Argan Oils in hand. .

It’s pretty hard to believe that we’re gonna have FIVE kids! Just 6+ years ago, I was deep in my single mommy/daughter world takeover. Now I’m a mom, a stepmom, and a mom-to-be all over again! We’ve been “blending” our family for six years and the new baby is the ultimate blend. A lot of you have asked how the kids responded to the news so here’s the breakdown: 
Devan is thrilled. She’s convinced that the baby will look exactly like her and insists that in every future family photo that SHE is the one holding the baby. Devan also has one of my ultrasound photos saved as her phone screensaver and wants to personally plan the #genderreveal. 😂

Damon is also very excited and suspected I was pregnant because I stopped drinking wine, was taking “preg-natal” pills, and my belly was bigger. Nothing gets past this guy! 🤨 He’s currently researching Greek god/goddess names for the baby since those are the coolest. 
Payton has always been a cuddle bug but now that she knows her sibling is on the way, I get all kinds of extra hugs and cuddles. 😌 She also demands that Daddy takes special care of me since I’m pregnant. She adds all the pressure and I’m grateful for that!

Caden is still... adjusting. For years, he’s told us that he doesn’t want to be the little brother anymore. He wanted to be a big brother. As soon as we told him that the baby was coming, he has decided that he actually likes being the “baby” in the family and is not too excited about being replaced. 
George says that he remembers not wanting his sisters to be born and wishing that they were brothers. 😂 I remember being completely excited about each of my sibling’s birth but I was a lot older than them. 🤷🏽‍♀️ Who’s got some advice for preventing #siblingrivalry?? Do you remember how you felt when your sibling was on the way?

I was 17 when I started dating my boyfriend. When he told me "I have a one-year-old daughter, and 'possibly' a baby on the way", rather than running the other way (screaming), I chose to stick around....I spent my school nights waking up all hours of the night to feed and change a crying baby. I had no choice but to grow up in like 2 seconds. I have put my literal blood, sweat, and tears into these kids. Its not for the faint of heart, the selfish, or the closed minded. This role requires you to be a gifted, selfless, diligent, adaptable, and above all a strong woman. I deal with constant slander and disrespect from a high-conflict bio mom. I continue to be slandered on social media, called names, and in the past 3 years I've been thanked twice, for all that I do. In fact I am constantly undermined as a parent, all because this person feels intimidated that I'm in her children's lives. Every disagreement is "all my fault" everything I do for the kids is "crossing boundaries" and she is always the victim, in every situation. Classic narcissistic psychopath. It can be frustrating to co-parent with this type of person but no matter how challenging it can be at times, I would not change this part of my life for the world. Being a Mother to these kids has been my greatest joy. I had absolutely no motivation to improve my life, until I met them. They give me strength and ambition I didn't have before. They are my passion. It's a truly powerful experience, to raise kids. I made the decision early in my relationship that no matter whos DNA they contain, I would be a part of their lives because the moment I held them in my arms, I fell in love and we immediately developed the most amazing bond.
Every day that I see their perfect little faces I get closer to becoming the person I'm supposed to be! And I can't wait to help my babies become who they're supposed to be as well! I may have to deal with the "baby mama drama" occasionally but the love in their eyes and their warm hugs and sloppy wet kisses makes it all more than worth it!!!

I was 17 when I started dating my boyfriend. When he told me "I have a one-year-old daughter, and 'possibly' a baby on the way", rather than running the other way (screaming), I chose to stick around....I spent my school nights waking up all hours of the night to feed and change a crying baby. I had no choice but to grow up in like 2 seconds. I have put my literal blood, sweat, and tears into these kids. Its not for the faint of heart, the selfish, or the closed minded.

So true! No matter whether you’re a parent or stepparent, whether you fostered or adopted your children or whether you’re taking on a parenting role in some other way, it’s not always easy! And that’s okay 💕

When a new family grows through adoption it is something to be celebrated. What we don't often acknowledge is that adoption is also born out of loss, both for biological parents and the child. .
.
.
It's hard for most of us to be ok with ambivalence. We want things to be black, white, or maaaybe an easily judged shade of grey. Things that are both both good and bad, both celebratory *and* tragic create dissonance. Our hearts fight ambivalence, but one way we can care for ourselves and others is to give ourselves permission to hold more than one emotion about a thing. .
.
.
Adoption can be both an expression of incredible love for all parents involved, and it can be heartbreaking loss for separated parents and child (research suggests even for infants). We can all care better for the adoptees and bio-parents in our lives by "adopting" language that affirms that both feelings (and all the complex variations in between) are valid. .

I thought about it last night.
When the rain was falling. 
The way life spins full speed and sometimes you just need a pause button.
I know you’ve been consumed by it all.
Wrung dry with the painting and packing and a new job and... the list goes on.
I see you there on the bleachers. 
I know how much it takes to be there. 
I know how the deep love in you requires you show up for him.
Thank you for that. 
Thank you for choosing him. 
Them.

When you break out all the 🍂Fall and ☃️Winter wear ~ and your two year old demands we dump it all out in the floor, play dress up, and make me chase after him...... you discover this could be ... the quickest way...... to break a sweat {since it’s now 2:35 and I’ve yet to push play 😛} #momsweat 🙌

I have many tips and strategies when it comes to positively coparenting for your kids but sometimes things need to be simplified. This sums it up. Love your kids more than you hate your ex. It really can put a lot in perspective.
