Some of the best news I got this year came in the form of a picture message from my sister showing me a positive pregnancy test. This wave of excitement fell over me as I relished in the thought of being an aunt. I remember as a kid I would tell Hillary she couldn’t have babies for a long time because I’d never want to share the attention I got from my big sister with her baby (I was like 10, don’t fault me for this🙈). Now, I honestly couldn’t be more excited. I anticipated this day (the gender reveal💙💗) for quite some time, and while my glasses may say “team girl”, deep down, I knew it would be a boy. @theblondestylist and @xcessive_boost I couldn’t be happier, or more excited for you guys. And I know dad’s watching over all of this, and celebrating you both big time 🎉I’m going to spoil the heck out of this sweet boy, February can’t come soon enough. Can’t wait to meet you, baby D 💙
We have so many options in SF when it comes to choosing a spot for our regular dinners out. I love that this group just prefers to go to fast food and chain restaurants. OKAY 4/5 of us, but he still comes anyways for the company.
Running a business from home when you have two little munchkins running around is far from EASY. 🧐 How do I do it? 👉🏼 In the nooks and crannies of life - at nap time, on the go and sometimes on mute! 😊 Thankfully I have the most amazing and supportive team that understands and helps me out. 🤨 Why do I do it? I’m passionate about changing people’s health and giving them the opportunity to pay it forward! 💫 Life is too short to be stuck doing something you don’t enjoy. The question is, what are you 👇🏼doing now to change what your life looks like in five years? #destiny#changeyourlife
The best cure for Mondayitis is the magic of the Madonna Inn ♥️ I still dream about those pink tufted bench seats! Valentine's Day done the best way, earlier this year on #mckeanstudiovacation 🍒#travelincolour
I’ve been obsessed with the idea of storytelling lately, and exploring more about what it takes to be a good story teller. I started reading a book called ‘Everybody’s Writes’ by Ann Handley which is a guide to creating good content. In it she writes, “What matters now isn’t storytelling; what matters is telling a true story well.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Just a little something to ponder this Sunday. 💖
Just finished up my baby sister’s makeup for senior pictures! 😍 She’s growing up too fast! 😭 Side note: why can’t I look this good when I do my own makeup?? I’m gonna say it’s those pretty brown eyes she hates and I’m obsessed with! 👀 @graceknjohnson
I’d take a sponsorship from @cheddarskitchen any day of the week. Got to do some shopping at @lanebryant in Jonesboro, AR! Excited to show you all the cute pieces I got c/o Lane Bryant to style. Then we headed to Cheddar’s, their blenders were down, but we still got some good margaritas on the rocks (this one is the Maui Margarita.) I also got to catch up with a friend from Jonesboro while we were in town. All in all we had a pretty productive day today. What has your Sunday looked like so far?
I can’t believe it’s already time for apple picking and school shopping! I feel like the year is basically over once school starts - I’ll be saying “Merry Christmas” before I know it! 😱In the meantime I’m trying to slow down and savor days like today, which we spent picking apples and petting sheep while the sun warmed our shoulders. These are the moments I wish I could bottle up and save rainy winter nights. But since I can’t, I’ll have to settle for simply having lived them.
Remember when we used to post photos of food for no reason other than it tasted good and you wanted other people to know? 🍟🙌🏼Throwing it back to those days of instagram today.
Went to a baseball game, mostly for the amazing food, but also because I really enjoy sitting outside for a few hours and making small talk. Plus tickets were $5 so you can’t beat that price! #survivingour20s
Harvest is happening kind of early here this year, because it’s been so hot for weeks on end now. We already harvested (and ate 😂) all our grapes from the garden. Totally took us by surprise and they were almost too ripe already - didn’t expect them until late August/early September. Which ones are your favorite - green, red or blue? I like these small dark-blue ones best 😍
Sunday Funday means movie night at our house 🍿It’s a time where we take a break from the hustle & bustle of life, leave our phones in a different room, and have a date night 💕 I’ve found, especially since I started my online business, that taking a step back from technology has become even more crucial! It’s important to set boundaries with my smart phone so that my relationships aren’t affected ✨ there’s nothing more cringe worthy than seeing two people on a date, or spending time together but having their heads buried in their phones 🙄🤦🏻♀️ look up from your phone, take out your ear buds, interact with this awesome world around you 🌿 you might be surprised what you’re missing when your eyes are glued to the screen 🤔
A tiny motherhood moment on a Sunday: she saw a guava on our table and thought that it was an apple. She kept saying "apple" and "yum yum" (which means food) and I said it wasn't an apple, it's a guava. It took me about 10 minutes to teach her how to say it properly, she ended saying something like "bwava" which is pretty close.
And.. for the first time when I asked her to stand up on this wall for a picture, she didn't ran off. She did what she was told and so, here's a photo of her looking very much pleased with herself because she did her mom a favor. It was such an amazing birthday week and it's one of the best weekends we've ever had! 💕 #imomsohard#samanthanoelle
Nails often take the brunt of our modern lives 🌸 We need to wash them several times a day to avoid viruses and bacteria, yet we must also use them to wash ourselves, do housework, and clean the dishes. Soon, our nails are short, chipped, and cracked. Argan oil can help restore nails to make them look great again ✨
