Just had the best weekend with these two gorgeous people! Had lots of food , probably gained half a stone 😬😬😬(even introduced Manny to pease pudding 😉😉😉) never laughed so much in ages at the “italianess” that came out during best of British quiz!! 😉😂😂😂#happyheart#fullheart
Доброго утра понедельника!
Прошли наши выходные в новом составе, муж ушёл на сутки, Эмилька у дедушки с бабушкой..А я вот пью чай и наслаждаюсь тишиной 🤫
Вы спрашиваете, как же Эмилия встретила братика. Эта была очень эмоциональная встреча. Она бежала навстречу с шариками и цветами в руках, спотыкаясь и смеясь😌Увидев его, одарила миллионами поцелуев,а я просто рыдала от счастья..😭
К вечеру ситуация приобрела другие обороты : поставь братика на ножки! Почему он не играет со мной? Забери у него соску! Не накрывай одеялом! И все в этом духе😖 Сложно, потому что не знаешь как себя правильно повести. Все таки,трёхлетка больше запоминает, чем недельный малыш, поэтому не хочется оттолкнуть её, или выработать ненависть к брату. Вчера уже было полегче,и от слов: мамочка, как же я его люблю! Сердце билось чаще..
Но у меня теперь другой вопрос: малыша любить легче и приятней, а вот куда девается вся та любовь к старшей, когда она порой так отвратительно себя ведёт?😖 Не слышит, не слушается и просто как будто не видит меня? Я задумалась..потому что не хочу чувствовать то,что чувствую..Эту злость на неё, раздражение. Хочется любить так же, как неделю назад, когда она была центром моей вселенной..
Я уверена, что каждая мама двоих/троих малышей проходила через это..Достаточно ли я люблю своих детей? Люблю ли я их одинаково? Я пока что не знаю 🤷🏼♀️ Но я точно уверена, что в моем сердце хватит места и любви для всех, потому что они мои..Самые любимые и родные 👨👩👧👦
I’ve been enjoying posting, and have felt drawn to share a bit more than normal lately. That being said I feel like I’ve been off my phone more altogether this weekend, finding myself fully engaged with my man & kiddos. Thoroughly enjoyed this family oriented long weekend, and I’m not ready for tomorrow to be Monday y’all!!
I took these pictures yesterday & I really wanted to post them yesterday because seeing these makes me so happy. I wanted to share the happiness with everyone. This boys smile is everything! And what’s not seen pictured is my legs are resting over daddy, so we got the bonus of having a restful moment with dad while playing & laughing in a way that would certainly make you laugh! Seriously, you wouldn’t be able to contain your laughter!! •
Here’s what happens when Lockland flips the script and does “this little piggy” on mommy’s toes! Oh the excitement. The suspense. The laughter that made us go straight silly! Moments like these are simple, peaceful, don’t cost anything extra yet they fill our cups, lift our spirits and strengthen our bonds! Moments like these are truly what life is about. I’m grateful for the season we’re in, and how we’re in it...nod to the hubby.❤️ •
Life is all kinds of things on any given day, and change comes quick, both seen and unseen... I’m trying my best to stay focused on the positive (practice my preach, getting back to preaching it!) and in doing so it feels positive continues rolling in. #seizetheday#thatsmile#laughter#qualitytime#family#moments#thislittlepiggy#fun#play#relaxing#chill#positivevibes#happyathome#timetogether#fullheart#lovemyboys#boymom#mobboss#mob#momlife#wifelife#balance •
#swipeleft to see more of this precious boy! See if you can hold back your smile!!😁 #locklandloyal#1
Coming home for three days taught me three things:
1. I love my Home
2. I love the people in my life
3. I am doing the right thing, even if it means living hundreds of miles away.
It was so nice to be back where it all began. I didn't get to see/spend as much time with friends as I'd hoped, but the ones I saw filled my heart with love and laughter. I can't wait to see them and many others over winter break when I have more time. As much as I love everyone back home, I know that Los Angeles is the place I need to be. I love it like a second home, and while I miss the rolling prairie there's nothing like waking up to the view of the DTLA skyline. Thank you to everyone who helped me get where I am today and thank you for receiving me with open arms when I come home. I am finding a new love for a new place but I'll tell ya "you're doin' fine Oklahoma"
Thanks for making this an awesome birthday Joyce! Coach’s clinic this weekend in Oahu and now I get to spend tonight and tomorrow with Nathaniel because he flew in 😊. @hotbotsandbaby @ambiguosending #fullheart#andnowim30 😱🎉🎉
My ❤️ is full. My family and friends complete me. I am blessed beyond belief and so thankful for the journey. Every day is an adventure and a chance to be better than the previous day. #thankful#blessed#happy#lovinglife ❤️ #fullheart
"Repent & be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost." Acts 2:38|| It was my high honor to baptize my favorite disciple and facilitate my most cherished ministry moment in nearly 12 years of full time ministry. I have baptized other parents' children in countless services, but to baptize mine?! 😭👀 Riyan has been asking for MONTHS to get baptized, but @octaviacormier & I wanted to make sure she understood that this was something more than just splashing around in an oversized tub at church! After a recent conversation on a lengthy drive about faith and baptism, I knew she was ready. I'm so proud of my daughter's decision to "go public" with her faith in Jesus and choosing to follow Him all her days! || SO thankful for the intentionality of our amazing @coolwaterkids (children's ministry) and pastors to help develop kids who love Jesus & the local church! Can't imagine ever trying to do life in God without being surrounded and in relationship with the people of God!
What do you do on a cool, damp day? You lose your everloving mom mind, spend hours shopping with teen girls, gorge on gooey grilled cheese sammaches and cream cheese junk....and then say yes to four of them staying the night. But the best part was an invite to watch Steel Magnolias with your youngest daughter and her four BFFs. That’s a LOT of crying. It was great ❤️!! 😬#momwin#bonding#steelmagnolias#sheswaycoolerthanhermomma#fullheart

4 years ago today, I decided to take a crazy, scary leap into the unknown. I followed a new path, in hopes that it would help me lose weight and get back into my pre-pregnancy clothes. And while it absolutely did that, it also brought me SO much more along the way!! Saying ‘yes’ to myself helped me grow as a person, grow as a leader, build new incredible friendships, empower other people, help my family’s finances, set an amazing example for my kids, and positively impact the world around me!! 💓
Now it’s your turn... do you need to say ‘yes’ to YOU right now?? Then we need to chat about how you can #befearless and start a new path in your life to greater health and happiness!!
“.. Your promise still stands
Great is Your faithfulness.
I'm still in Your hands.
This is my confidence, You never failed me yet.
I've seen You move the mountains.
And I believe, I'll see You do it again.
You made a way, where there was no way. And I believe, I'll see You do it again.”🎶🙌🏽🙏🏼 #churchwasamazingtoday#GodisGood#selfiesunday

My personal mission is to serve and transform as many lives as I can with this powerful blessing! #fullheart#lovethelifeyoulive#transformation#blessed
Spent the day exploring with some of my favorite people. Then we ate a yummy lunch, and got to spend some quality time with both Charlie’s family and my family. It was a pretty special day, and my heart is full ✨
🚫Photo FAIL📱by Ryan 🤣🙈.
He might suck at taking pictures (heads cut out, blurry, awful angle, blinking, etc) but he’s great at a lot of other things.
Like supporting me with my dreams ☁️ 🧡.
I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do growing up. I know I wanted to serve others and the most serious I ever got was looking into being a Registered Nurse. But when I found out the money for school, the years of school and the schedules, I got cold feet. And then before you know it, I was pregnant and life had other things in store for me. And looking back, I’m glad it didn’t happen or else I might not have had the guts to say yes to what I do now. And that’s coaching and helping others on their fitness journeys as well as help other women grow their own businesses (my now passion!) 💖. .
All while I was figuring out my life, Ryan has stood by my side. And even when I told him about coaching, even though he was like “huh? 🤷♂️ “, he still said “if it makes you happy, do it”. And I’m so thankful for his support, even though he wasn’t screaming through the rooftops. .
So needless to say, I’ll take his awful pictures as long as he still supports what I love ☺️.
Have you been watching or wondering what I do and want to learn more and/or ask questions? This is the PERFECT time to learn more, just use the link in my bio to join my FREE sneak peek into coaching that starts tomorrow (on your own time of course 😊). Hope to see you soon 💋!
This weekend was full of catching up with friends I haven’t seen in too long and laughing enough to make up for the days when there isn’t enough.
My heart is full and I feel re-energized and tired all at the same time. This weekend I was reminded again how blessed I am to have been surrounded by the best family and friends my entire life. Relationships are everything and what I’m passionate about, it’s what brought me to my career and gets me through the best and toughest days.
Reconnecting with friends and reminiscing reminds me of all the fun I’ve had and what makes every experience worth it as none of them would have been what they were without the people there with me.
Reflecting tonight as I finally wind down and so thankful for growing up in a small town with close community that accept you like family and creating some of the best memories. Just realized out of it all, never took a single picture. 🤦🏼♀️ #thankful#grateful#blessed#smalltown#smalltowngirl#family#friends#friendsarefamily#lifelingfriendships#friendships#fullheart#tired#relaxingsunday
Alrighty - getting real with you here. There is absolutely no filter on this picture.
•Me in my pjs (obviously because after bedtime at 7 that’s immediately what I do).
•I’ve showered for tomorrow (I don’t shower in the mornings. Mama likes her sleep).
•I have a clay mask spotted on all of my zits. YES, I have THAT MANY right now.
This pregnancy has been hard on my skin. It’s dry and broken out constantly. I struggled with acne BAD growing up. I was on accutain for 9 months in high school, fun fact, it was that rough. So for me to say my skin is “bad” it’s not your average couple zits that appear and go away without a trace. Mine are full on blister pockets that definitely leave remains long after they’re gone.
But that’s life 🤷🏻♀️ no one is perfect. Love yourself where you’re at and be unapologetically you.
So here’s me. Zit faced. Pregnant. Stressed. And tired. But ready for a new week! Happy Sunday, lovelies 💕
Time well spent catching up with family & friends this weekend 💕 May have been running around town since 7am on both days and might be struggling to keep my eyes open (I could reallyy go for an outdoor siesta right about now) but nevertheless grateful to have celebrated so many special occasions with some beautiful souls. Feeling particularly inspired by all the light and love that was shared with me ✨ Wishing you a restful Sunday evening, fam!
Anyone else just wish they could advertise how amazing there spouse is??
Don’t get me wrong, she isn’t perfect but Maison seriously amazes me a little more everyday. She is selfless but strong. Smart and beautiful. I’m beyond blessed to have her as my wife.
If you feel the same about your significant other (which I know you do) let them know tonight! -C
This weekend has been packed full, tiring, but SO SO good for the heart! Hangouts with friends, pumpkin patch fun, birthday party festivities, and a mom/daughter date to get manicures and pedicures! I hope you all had a great weekend too!💗Ready to talk ShadowSense all week! There’s really nothing else out there like it, and it’s something I never plan on going without!🙌🏻
I don’t like Fall. I like barns and apple cider and cozy blankets, but I don’t like Fall. Fall means colder and darker days. It means that my fingers go white and my nose turns red. For whatever reason, it is physically painful for me to be cold and it happens very quickly for me. This unusual physical response also makes it harder for me to do the thing I love most- be outside. I feel like a part of me dies with the leaves each Fall. But I’m trying not to be defeated. I’m trying not to let sadness set in. I’m trying not to let my circumstances determine a negative outcome. I’m trying to take in the seasons as they come instead of running from them when they are uncomfortable. So bring on Fall. #fall#nothanks#sorrynotsorry#shortsplease#noshirtnoshoesnoproblem#allseasonhiker#hikinghound#newchallenges#bringiton#bundleup#whitefingers#rednose#fullheart
What a fantastic week celebrating life with these incredible limb different kids and their families at the annual @nsn_foundation #piratecamp 🎉🎉❤️ Honored to have been part of it as a group leader for the captain’s crew! Ty @jerryscandiffio for the invite, @regaswoods and Nick for creating such a fantastic non-profit, all the volunteers/staff for a great camp and all the campers for the wiggles & giggles, high 5s and smiles! We sailed a ton, played seated volleyball, did crafts, learned instruments, and hunted for treasure on an island followed by an all-out pirate theme end party where SO many running legs were gifted to amputee kids. #fullheart#giveback#neversaynever#nolimits#lesslegmoreheart @lesslegmoreheart
Sending luvvv to every single one of you (Julia & Gia, too, who aren't pictured and put on my old skates and skatepark skated for the first time!). Thank you for making me feel special for my birthday. It meant a lot! 🌞
