These girls love the water. It’s always a constant struggle getting them out of the bath.⠀
Since they were babies I was using Aveeno and Honest but it was so expensive (and stores around me either didn’t sell the lavender aveeno or they were always sold out). So as I was walking the aisles of @walmart the other day I got Lizzy some detangler and a bottle of 3in1 @suavebeauty kids green apple. ⠀
Not only does it smell amazing but it actually works! Lizzy wasn’t upset that soap was in her eyes (honest always bugged her) and the detangler was perfection as it helped us brush through her hair quickly and pain free. The best part: it only costs $4. That’s right!!! ⠀
The other day we were blessed to have someone open their home to us so we could shower and sleep in a cool room and get out of the heat. I had forgotten my hair stuff so I used the girls. Turns out it works just as well for me as it does for them plus it leaves my hair smelling like green apple 🍏 #suavebeauty#kidsshampoo#hurricaneflorence
‘Tis the season. Every time we stay at a hotel, we plunder all the paper water glass covers from the room. Then when fruit fly season rolls around (it’s here), they become “gnat caps” at home. #countrylivin#bugsinmywine#wine#fruitflies#gnats @specialswineseller You should sell these!
Guess what mom? I’m gunna get ya! 🐶👅😂😂
This morning’s plan was to get my workout and shower done before Jeremy had to leave for work. Reality was I had 15 more minutes of my workout left when he had to leave. So today’s arm workout consisted of a few bonus moves which included:
▪️Wrestling resistance bands out of Everest’s mouth
▪️ Crawling around the closet to get Everest out
▪️ Moving planks to avoid Everest jumping on my back
Starting a new workout routine the same week we got a puppy is not ideal timing but I guess if you wait for a perfect time to start you never will, right?
Oh and as for the shower this morning... that was a whole different adventure but somehow I made it to work on time! 🙌🏼😂😂
I’m all about a tidy home, but let’s be realistic.... some of those IG feeds look WAY too staged for me. Nothing against the staged photo, but for me they are few and far between! You all know, what you see is what you get with me. I let it all hang out quite often. 😜 I have messy kids, I can be messy at times too and we live in our home. Although this isn’t the messiest my desk can get, it can get quite chaotic and cray cray, I’m pretty proud it looks decent today with the amount of work I’ve got piled up. So in honor of this Realistic Tuesday (I made that up and I like it) I give you imperfection. Reality is I’ve got mountains of work to do and honestly it won’t all get done today. Reality is my desk is messy, but I know where everything is. Reality is I look like a hot mess, the mom bun is strong today. Reality is I would take imperfection over perfection any day. So cheers to you and your imperfections! Let’s compare messes. Tell me about yours and I will tell you about mine. 😜😂 Shop some of these items by clicking the link in my bio!
My journey isn’t perfect.
I have days where I don’t wanna show up. Days where I eat a little too much crap. Days where I would rather sleep than get my workouts; that makes me human.
I’m doing this so that I can watch my son grow up and so that I can be there for every moment, big or small. I’m trying to stop hating who I was and am now loving who I’m becoming.
I share my journey because I know the pain of hating yourself, eating disorders, not feeling good enough, jealousy of other women, and guilt for not being able to be where you want to be and I know I’m not the only one to have felt that.
I share my story for people that need to hear it like I needed to hear it back when I was in too deep.
I share my story because it’s freeing from the things I face.
For those of you needing a sign of when to start— TODAY is your day. You’re the creator of your own story! •
If you’re ready to change your story I have a few spots left open in the new boot camp starting OCT 1st.
We made it! Our house made. Our pets made it. We made it. ⠀
There were so many tender mercies from God over our preparations and endurance of #hurricaneflorence and we were so extremely blessed. Many have lost everything. Many are now without. ⠀
Over the next few weeks (once flooding subsides) we will go into our surrounding towns and help them with their clean up and restoration. ⠀
Check back in the next day or two for a myriad of blog posts that talk about what we would do again and what we would forgo, how to prepare for a natural disaster in your area and the first warm item I cooked once power was restored and the trucks of food finally came into town. #northcarolinacoast#hurricaneflorence2018
Chamomile is my spirit plant. It has been in my life since I was a child. We used it for indigestion, menstrual cramping and sleep aid. I always felt like it was there for any troubles we encountered. It’s aroma is like a sweet apple! I started growing it this year and have been happy with the harvest results. Is it wild to say I can’t imagine a day without this plant in my life? It’s no surprise that Chamomile is my favorite essential oil.
Is anything better than a cheeseburger after a long day at work. Today, it’s national cheeseburger day while we celebrate all the farmers it takes to put this on your plate.
Barley farmer (cold beer on the side)
Potato farmer for those fries.
Where is the best place to get a good, juicy burger. I make a pretty mean burger right in my own kitchen.
