So I have this gorgeous wooden box currently holding my favorite cook books - it’s perfect! 📚But I’m actually working on putting all my favorite recipes onto some super cute recipe cards so I won’t really need the cook books out. 🤷♀️Do you write down or use cook books anymore or do you keep them all online? Am I just old fashioned? #recipecards#cookbooks#oldboxes
Throwback Thursday to this little cutie!! There's a pretty epic family video about this dance recital. 🤣 .
I wasn't always a hermit. Growing up, I was extremely extroverted. Some might say a show-off. It wasn't until a few years of seriously bad decisions and a relationship out of a Lifetime movie that I hid away in seclusion. .
Over the last year, I've made immense strides to get out of my comfort zone and rejoin society, and coaching played a huge role in that. . 👊It's forced me to talk to people rather than bury my head in the sand all day. This is HUGE for someone with social anxiety. . 👊It's shown me that I can stick to a program for 80 days without giving up, and that I look GOOD with muscles. . 👊It's introduced me to people from around the world who've become a second family. . 👊It's let me make extra money by doing nothing more than sharing my journey. .
Sounds pretty fun, right? If a weirdo like me can do it, you KNOW you can! Leave a ❤ for more information and see for yourself!
AD | Who has two thumbs and blames her next door neighbor's crazy haunted houses for ruining Halloween for her from childhood to present? This girl. 🧛♀️They would go ALL out on their house so they could scare the trick or treaters. And every year, I would lock myself in our bathroom so I didn't have to come face to face with whatever horror they dreamed up. I knew when I had kids I would have to be a little braver, especially since I have 2 boys. But I draw the line at gory.🧟♂️
We're much more about treats than tricks. 🍬 Because of all the rushing around on Halloween, I throw the kids a mini after-school party (more like a themed playdate) earlier in the month. I keep things super easy by doing an activity that is also their sweet treat and party favor. One trip to @walmart is all you need to grab everything to host your kids and a few of their friends. Plus their Fun Size candy mixes (featuring Fun Size M&M’S®, SNICKERS®, MILKY WAY®, 3 MUSKATEERS®, and TWIX® are perfect to pick up for your own trick or treaters!🍫
Head to the blog to see just how easy this party idea is to recreate! Plus, Walmart has 31 days of ideas for you to 👻Boo It Better! Use the link in bio or http://bit.ly/2Nr9FB7
My little busybody this morning. 😍 He’s the sweetest thing... until he’s not. 😂 I can see the toddler emerging in him a little more each day. He knows just enough about how the world works to get himself into trouble. It’s cute seeing him explore and try something new or get frustrated when his expectations aren’t met.
Every month I think- this is my favorite stage! There’s so much to love about babies. 🤗❤️
Today I have:
▪️felt overwhelmed ▪️questioned almost everything ▪️look like a train wreck
I’m not always put together. I love a pretty feed and I love sharing the highlights. And I love pretending I am a classy business lady who owns it day in and day out. In reality I have countless insecurities, personal and relationship struggles, and toddler boys who know my triggers and LOVE to push the last button when my fuse has run out. I guess my point is that we all have BAD days, and times that we don’t feel good enough. So if you are having one of those days, know you are not alone and that it is just that; a bad day. And if your day has been amazing, take a second to recognize how the bad days make the good days so much better. And now I’m going to snuggle with my boys and to watch an annoying cartoon and make up stories about dinosaurs and reindeer (their request not mine 😉)
This little person was full of giggles when she went down for her nap today. As if to say, HA! Not happening Mama. And that’s exactly what happened, no nap🙄
So we grabbed coffees, took a long family walk by the lake and rode all the big kid slides at the park✨
I rarely get pictures with both of my babies🖤 I’m realizing that this solo parenting thing is my territory. It’s honestly calming but crazy at the same time. My husband is on a business trip and it’s really not any different then when he is working. Day 3 and I think I killed it but failed a little. It’s all okay though, they are both still smiling. Also peep thoose little teeth on Seb😄
This sweet couple will be welcoming their first baby into the world in just a few short months. I can’t believe I haven’t shared any of their session. Brittany held this wonderful secret in until their session! It was so amazing to be apart of the reveal!

FAILURE is a part of Growth.
Failure is how you become who you were meant to be. .
If you don’t start walking,
You’re never gonna learn how to run & you’re never gonna blaze the trail for someone to run behind you. .
The only thing worse than Giving Up, is wishing that you hadn’t. .
Cheers to you lovelies that have “messed up”, fallen off the wagon, or stumbled along the way...... if you picked yourself up & have kept going, you are that much better because of it. 😘
work hard. mom hard. 💕 today’s work agenda :: package up care bags for #cibcrunforthecure breast cancer survivors, have lunch together, “play” with some safer makeup....all with our little (equally hard working) assistants not too far from our feet! mommying isn’t easy....being your own boss isn’t easy, so knowing you’re not alone in any of the crazy is everything! never underestimate the “work from anywhere mamas” - we know how to get it done! 🙌🏼 || #allthethings
So you can drag me through hell
If it meant I could hold your hand
I will follow you 'cause I'm under your spell
And you can throw me to the flames
I will follow you, I will follow you
@bringmethehorizon @olobersykes might as well had a teething toddler around while writing this song 💀
Our little short round is 2 months old! At his 2 month checkup, he weighed in at 12lbs 5.4oz and measured 24.5” long. His eyelashes are growing as fast as weeds, and starting to curl out. His droopy cheeks and double chin are outta control! He loves storytime, staring at the pictures on the pages, responding and babbling whenever he feels the need. His whole face lights up when he smiles, and his eyes get extra extra squinty. This dumpling boy is full of extra squish…we love him so. #2monthsold
Lucy and I went on a walk this morning and about halfway home she said, “mommy I want to go home.”
I responded, “every step is getting us one step closer to home.”
And then God nudged me and He reminded me that’s how it is with our adoption, every step forward gets us one day closer to bringing our little boy home. ❤️ So we will continue to walk in expectant trust day by day!

Could it get any better?? I don't think so. It's amazing how healing the ocean can be. All my struggles and worries and doubts and fears all seem to disappear as long as I can hear the waves crashing and feel the sand between my toes. I think my kids feel the same way...we can spend hours there doing nothing. No toys, no electronics, not usually any sibling squabbles...just the peace of the ocean.
Quick bullet points before the reason for this post
•I had one of those days with the boys
•Mike sent me off to the Cresent for some me time
•Picked an outfit that I liked (I love tops tucked into jeans)
•I didn’t feel comfortable because of my stomach
•Wore it anyway because I’m supposed to be trying to embrace my flaws 🙄 But I added a scarf to help camouflage 🤨
Anyway, I’m looking at clothes in a shop and I feel like someone is looking at me. I look up to see a tall, skinny, beautiful blonde woman looking at me in disgust. She then turns to her boyfriend/husband/whatever and says “Ugh, look at her stomach, people should really learn to dress for their size.” _
Instead of standing my ground and telling her where to shove her opinion, I hung my head, turned on my heels, went to my car and cried. I also ate my weight in chocolate when I got home 😑
So to sum up, my scarf didn’t help, i hate people and I’ll be wearing baggy jumpers from now on 👍🏻
