Trying to figure out what this little one should be for Halloween🍁🌿
Trying to figure out what this little one should be for Halloween🍁🌿
For a long time after i signed up under a coach who was basically inactive and never talked to me, i felt sorry for myself. 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️ I didnt get alot of things that i saw other coaches getting like recognition, small gifts for hitting goals, guidance, and most importantly a deep friendship with the person you thought was going to be there for you. -
-
Well, i quickly realized that whatever im not getting from my upline i cannot CONTROL. But what i CAN control is giving MY COACHES everything i didnt get. 👭💖👭💖👭
-
-
Have i been perfect at doing that???? Heck no. Im NOT a natural born leader, never ran my own business before in my life, literally had to learn from scratch just like everyone who signs up does.👌 Ive made plenty of mistakes, failed as a coach & leader, and have questioned if i was capable of doing this. I still have doubts and fears & bad days, but i am in the TRENCHES with my coaches leading by example to show whats POSSIBLE. 🙌
-
With that being said, i LOVE gift giving to my coaches who are hitting their goals, rank advancing, hitting sc, and earning their FIRST paycheck.  Woot woot. 🙌🙌🙌 Just got done ordering a couple of cool things that i cant wait to send off to them. Remember-- you cant control anyone else but you CAN control how YOU act, feel, give, lead, and LIVE! 💖💖💖💖

It's sunny, we're outside, I'm knitting, he's smiling, all is well.

This little lady got some screen time yesterday when our news story on my husband’s chalk art aired. 😜 I shared it in my stories for anyone who was interested in seeing it. I won’t mention how hard it was to watch myself. Full sun is NOT flattering and I didn’t really think I would be interviewed as well. 🤷🏼‍♀️ Also, What app do you like for long stories? I want to find a better one.  #chalkitupwithdad

One week ago today, this little man turned 11 months...
❤︎
The one question I have is...how did we get here🤷🏼‍♀️ How did time pass so quickly?! How does he grow in his sleep? How does he become a different baby every day?  How does my love for him continue to grow?  And how do I finish my coffee before it gets cold?
❤︎
11 months of motherhood! Wow...it’s been a wild ride!

My @terracorefitness got delivered last night so of course I had to try a few moves with it after my morning run. I am loving he versatility and the added challenge my favorite moves. My stability squats still need a lot of work, but if it doesn’t challenge you. It doesn’t change you right! #strongerthanyesterday #moveeveryday #moveoftheday

What if someone told you that in two years your life could improve in ways you never imagined? Would you run with it? 
I was ready to live the same days over and over. I was content. Working for the next forty years hoping that at the end we may have enough to enjoy some sort of retirement, even though we had no active saving plan. We dealt with health symptoms every day thinking that was just the hand life dealt us. It only took a few months for us to go from skeptics to believing that life is not only meant to be lived to the fullest and it really can be!

I could fill your ears and hearts with the way our health and finances have been transformed, the lives that are changing, with the friendships that have been strengthened, the new amazing people that bless our lives daily, with the trips that never would have been possible, and with the future that will be filled with time freedom, and a legacy I will be proud to leave my kids. But I don't want you to hear about mine as much as I want you to have your own stories! What if it could change everything for you? That choice is yours- you determine the path you travel daily. Sometimes the first step is the hardest, but it's the most rewarding! Time will pass regardless, make it time you love!

This morning was fun. As we arrived to the library we saw two firefighters outside the station and they were nice enough to talk to us and show Noah the fire truck. He got to hold the fire hose and he said that was the best part. One guy was training so we wish him the best of luck and thank you to our local firefighters 🚒

Garden time is one of our favorite things at the modern tot. 🥑🥕🍆✨ Right now the kids are learning about preparing the soil for planting and the role worms 🐛 play in gardening. 
Here’s to wearing rain boots even when it’s not raining and letting our kids get their hands dirty. ❤️ To schedule a tour *link in profile* ✨

This is the face of a Mama who was up all night with a screaming teething toddler and a baby. I’ve never felt more tired but more grateful for this little family who possesses my heart. I’ve been thinking so much about motherhood and how it deepens. I am the hero. I’m the hero these kids will look up to. The slayer of spiders and monsters under the bed. The comforter when they are scared or like yesterday 😷 and needing Mama. I’m their fierce protector from those who oppose them. This motherhood thing is a rich deep and challenging one but man I wouldn’t have it any other way. #mamaheart

Prime the day for positivity. We all want to wake up motivated and driven and capable of conquering our day. But, sometimes we just wake up and feel like crap, m’i’right? This doesn’t mean you just allow yourself to just wallow!

The power plant doesn’t just have power, right? The power plant generates power. This is just like YOU. You don’t just have happiness. You CREATE it. Start your day off with positivity.

One of Willa’s many firsts this weekend. 🍁🌾 #littlewillamoon #fallvibes
The kids are absolutely obsessed with their “sugar sticks” aka PROBIOTICS and PREBIOTICS people. No lie they bug the heck out of me in the morning until I give them their sticks. Young Living products are just so insanely mind blowing, even for the kids, sometimes we forget how much good we are doing for our bodies because it comes so easy. I used to have to force or try to hide their pro/prebiotics in their food and even then they would scream out in terror because they would taste something different. (My kids are dramatic 😂) I will never let us go out of stock of these bad boys.

First field trip for my preschooler! We got to pick hazelnuts, see how they’re cleaned + packaged, pick apples, drink some cider, and we even got to ride the bus! Mom and sister got to join in on the fun, and even though Parker says his teacher is his best friend, and not me, we still had the best time 🍎 🍏

six months with you • wow, my sweet girl... I cannot believe that we celebrated your half birthday 🎉 yesterday. you are so sweet, smiley, cuddly, giggly, content, joyful, silly, so chatty, and easy going. you adore your big bros 👦🏼👦🏼, think your daddy is hilarious, and mama is your favourite😍. you are eating lots during the day 🤱🏻 and started some solids 🍚 last week! you love to play and are quite happy just entertaining yourself. You’re getting the hang of the jolly jumper, not sure about the exersaucer, fall asleep 😴 in the ergo, dislike the bouncy chair (unless you’re eating), most of all you just like laying on a blanket and squirming around. Did I mention how much you move?! you almost look like you’re dancing on your back! 🧚🏼‍♂️ you’re close to rolling from back to tummy, found your toes 👣 a couple weeks ago, and laugh when playing peek-a-boo! you love sticking out your tongue 😛 + blowing bubbles.😘 you are sleeping a bit better and the past few nights have slept 6ish-5ish! you eat and go back to sleep. We start our day around 7:30. 💤 you rock at naps and still nap 3 times a day, with the last nap being a cat nap 🐱of 30 mins or less. you’re maybe (?) 14 lbs. you are SO loved. 🤟🏼 we’re all excited to see what the next 6 months have in store 🌙

Juliet is 5 months old today! She loves to smile at everyone, likes to be held by mommy and daddy and still loves to talk to her friends. Her newest friend is our cat Napoleon! She likes to look at him and likes when I help her pet him. He’s not so sure he’s all that happy about being her friend yet but I’m sure he will come around! She is starting to tolerate tummy time and loves to make all sorts of noises! She holds to hold on to us when we hold her and reaches for us when we aren’t holding her. I feel so very blessed to be her mom and thank God every day that she is healthy, happy, and mine! I love you JuJu B!

My newest sweet treat is a sliced apple (clearly I’m having a moment w/apples this season) smeared w/almond butter & a sprinkle of M&M’s.
Soooooo good! Is it wrong that I’m enjoying more than the kids?

Initially I thought I could trick them into more fruit w/a tease of a classic chocolate treat buuuut seems I’m the only one grabbing for more than one 🤷🏻‍♀️ I dare you to try just one!

After a weekend away it is definitely hard to get back into the swing of regular life. Working on patience with both the kids as I adjust back to reality. Thankful for this life that God has chosen for me and wouldn't trade it for anything. 💜💚🎀 #rlj15 #aesj18

Some of our favorite go-to’s this fall now that school is back in session and we’re surrounded by all the germs! We all take an Inner Defense capsule daily and have rollers of Thieves, & lemon & frankincense. We roll Thieves on our feet morning and night and frank + lemon on our spines. RC goes in our diffusers at bedtime and I also put a drop on my chest before working out. It seems like a lot, but it’s worth it to boost our immune systems so we don’t get as sick during the fall & winter months.

Some Monday thoughts I had while falling asleep last night. 
It's not that I LOVE Mondays, but I find them exhilarating. My weekends are for being in slow motion. They're for early morning relaxing with some tea and playing with Elle. They're for walks through Golden Gate Park and going to the playground. My To-Do list is put on hold. So, when Monday comes along, it's all about downing my #mommacrack down the hatch and tackling my to-do list. It is about getting my work done smart and efficiently. Writing reports for work, recruiting participants for my dissertation, checking in on my September Fit Club (which by the way these awesome women are kicking butt and keeping me motivated), and it's about getting my own workout in to be accountable to myself and my team. So no, I don't LOVE Mondays, but I LOVE what I do, so it never feels like WORK. It is a feeling of SATISFACTION and you can't beat that! #bestjob .

We can't wait to wean! Since we got the highchair we've been putting Isla in it at every meal time so that she gets used to sitting with us. If I'm being honest I wish we'd bought one weeks ago as it's lovely when she can join in rather than leaving her on the floor in her bouncer chair! I think we're going to take the plunge and start in a week or so at 17 weeks - any hints and tips will be welcome! 🍌🥦🍏🍐🍓

Friendship has been a tricky thing for me to figure out. In every season of life, I’ve stumbled through friendships without much understanding of what a healthy friendship looks like. With marriage and motherhood, time for friendship grew smaller and smaller even though the need for it grew bigger and bigger. My advice: 
____________

Don’t take so long to invite new friends over for soup.
____________

Be the kind of friend you’d like to have. 
____________

Put the babies to bed and have a girls night... with cheesecake. 
____________

Talk to your friends on the phone. (This is a lost art, let’s bring it back.)
____________

Love your friends kids/family well.
____________

Build each other up JUST BECAUSE. 
____________

Thank you @christie_burton and @hannadingler for teaching me how to be a good friend everyday. Y’all are the best gifts. 💛

Do you ever find yourself focusing so much on your past that it feels hard to move forward? Like you have some sort of weight you’re holding onto. .
Well, guess what: now is the time to let that go. Look inside yourself and remember who you are. I feel like that is a line from Moana... I think I’ve been watching too many kids movies 😂

I have been feeling under the weather the last few days.. mostly dizzy/light headed, and most of you are probably thinking “she’s pregnant”... sorry to disappoint but that’s definitely not the case (I wish 😩) So, my question is, what can I do to help with dizziness? I’ve got a doctors appointment booked for this week to make sure there’s nothing more going on, but until then I need alllllll the help! Also, is there anything cuter than a baby in a big fuzzy coat? Because after seeing this one we got from Zara, I’m thinking the answer is no 😭😍

The top 2️⃣ conversations I have with fellow moms is about how busy we feel (picking up kids, throwing dinner on the table while chanting “hurry” then driving them to the next thing) AND how we don’t know what to do about social media/phones/constant texting. Underneath these two conversations are two questions we may not even know we’re asking:
~*~
(1) Am I doing this right?
(2) Am I missing it? ~*~
May I speak into this for just a minute? ~*~
Sweet friend, please remember that God is just crazy about you. That He is so happy He made you. That He’s with you when you feel like your parenting is The Worst. That He created you to be dependent on Him because it’s not your job to hold everything together. That His grace redeems it all. That He loves your kids more than you do. ~*~
That you’re a very good mom. ~*~
If you find yourself dismissing these truths, will you talk to your friend Jesus and ask Him how He sees you as a mom? Will you ask Him to sing so loudly that He drowns out your inner critic? Will you boldly approach the throne of grace and sit there for just a minute so you can see His eyes filled with love and joy and a twinkle because of you?

When you’re 4 and need Global Entry... ✌🏼✈️ 🌎 #worldtraveler #whatalife
Brooklyn is finally entering into the {slightly} helpful stage of toddlerhood where her helping is actually more helpful than destructive lol. Today consisted of helping move laundry from the washer to the dryer (I hand her wet clothes and she puts them in the dryer but still counts) and making her carry all of the light grocery bags from the car into the house (might be considered child labor but she thought that it was hysterical carrying bags as large as herself so we’ll go with it lol). I’m hoping that we’re entering a stage where helping with chores is fun and it’s amazing how actually helpful the extra hand can be when putting things back in the pantry or carrying laundry to her room. I love her helpful heart and hope to instill some good habits now that will benefit in the long term🌻

This week as been hard. The kind of hard where your friend finds you on your back porch because your toddler is physically trying to break the door down to avoid her nap.
:
There have been little breaks but big breakdowns, little sleep and a lot of sleepiness, little patience and a ton of prayer.
:
I don’t have the answers to hard seasons like this or the drive to find the silver lining of it all but what I do have is appreciation.
:
Appreciation for my husband who forced me to go for a run last night despite wanting to eat my feelings away. For a sweet friend that let me leave my kids in the car (car on) and chat with her uninterrupted for 15 minutes in the driveway. For my dad who reminds me to have grace on myself in seasons of transition. For the friend who stopped me mid sentence and blurred out “ you are a GOOD mom- you might know it, but I just feel like you needed to hear it”. And I did.
:
I guess I believe life is allowed to be “hard” sometimes but there is something about community and honesty and the diversity of peoples giftings that can be so refreshing in the midst of it. The end.

This might be the third picture 📸 we’ve taken this year with all 4 of us in it🤦🏻‍♀️ I know it’s sad and now that the holidays are coming up, it makes me think of the families who take REAL pictures with the cute outfits and gorgeous backgrounds......sigh! We’ve done that once. So we’re struggling in that department😆 But I’ve been thinking about buying a tripod to hold the camera and just use the “fancy” timer setting to take our pictures for us. This way we can take more pictures with ALL of us. Not sure yet though. Any of you have a camera tripod??? What do you think about them???

i love him... that’s all 💘 #happyanniversary
I want you to know no matter how many decades have passed you are always accountable for your actions. I want you to know that it’s never ok for you to do something to another persons body that they don’t want you to do. I want you to know that any time I ask if I can give you one of those sweet sloppy kisses my heart treasures so much and you gently turn away I say ‘that’s ok, it’s your body’ for a reason. Because you are the only one that gets to decide. I want you to know you don’t have to do anything ever with your body that makes you uncomfortable so that you go into this world knowing the same is true for everybody else that you meet. I want you to know boys will be boys will never be ok in this house. 
I don’t have many wants for you my son but know when you leave these doors without my hand in yours I expect you to go out into this world with respect and kindness for others. And for yourself. To tread gently. Because remember my love, you are not owed anything. But the world is yours for the taking when you treat it honorably.

Este bebé hermoso ayer cumplió 3 meses 💙

Fue un día lleno de emociones, me aparté de él por 4 horas 😥 empezamos desde hace 1 semana al proceso de adaptación con su abuelita y a la aceptación más frecuente de la pacha así cuando yo regrese a trabajar no es tan complicado para él y para mí.

Además, ayer cumplí el primer 50% alcanzado de mi meta sobre lactancia materna exclusiva a demanda 🙌🏻 No suelo trazarme metas larguísimas, necesito que sean alcanzables para mí y mi estilo de vida. Voy por los 6 meses, me falta la mitad 😁 Ya veremos cómo estamos y qué queremos cuando lleguemos a Diciembre 😜

Te amo bebé campeón, tú eres mi motorsito. Te amo y te bendigo 😘

I'm getting my writing groove back - that is, anything longer than a micro (is that what I'm doing now? Talk about sidetracking Karen!). ✏️ I'm getting my writing groove back and was excited enough to take a silly photo of myself with pens strategically placed behind my ears while I use my laptop. I've got my much-need-to-update notebook beside me along with my little furry woodland creature.
✏️ I'm getting my writing groove back and instead of working on one of 3 pieces open on the laptop, I'm writing this post to tell you how exciting that is. Priorities, right?
✏️ I'm getting my writing groove back and I feel at ease. I have all these thoughts packed tightly in my head as if I'm hoarding them and they're itching to get out. I've been kind of lagging on writing put-together posts, readying them for submissions and I can't pinpoint why.
✏️ Either way, I've got my writing groove back and I now have to get up and go pick up my son from the bus stop 🤯

MOMSTRONG... Mom does it best. #mokaqueenz #momstrong
Two is tough on all of us.
Two is knowing that you don’t want to be told what to do.
But also needing to feel safe.
Two is annoying you’re brother.
But loving him...
But annoying him, 
but loving him (repeat in to infinity)
Two is wanting to be a Big girl.
But still breastfeeding.
Two is being able to name your emotions.
But not control them.
Two is wearing big girl pants,
And sleeping in your own bed.
Two is knowing everything,
Two is Being a scientist,
An anarchist 
An explorer,
And very very loud.
It’s wanting you’re independence,
But needing to know I’m there.
Two is the first time you said you hate me,
but also the first of many times you said ‘I lub you’
Two is seeing your mum try and fail to be both parents.
Two is asking to go to school but begging me not to go to work.
It’s having to share me.
Two is the year I marvel at you.
Two is flying along on your skooter.
Trying to wipe your own bum.
Going off your veggies.
It’s big emotions
Tears.
Hugs.
Boundaries.
And all of us trying to muddle through.
Two is hard on all of us.
But two is the beginning of you.

Tried @rompnroll_stpetersburg today and it’s the cutest thing ever. I think my little one was way to excited. I can’t wait for the future with those cute classes! Shout out to one of the instructors, she’s from upstate NY!

MOMSTRONG.... it gets no better...👑💪🏽 #MOMSTRONG #mokaqueenz
No one is perfect. I’m sure as hell no where close. As human we make mistakes, it’s all apart of the cycle of life. There are days when I just want to say forget everything but then I remember, giving up will get me no where but further upset that I gave up on myself. .
.
.
What do you do when you find yourself overwhelmed? .
.
When I feel like I’ve had enough or I need to center myself I fold laundry. It’s such a awkward stress reliever even though it’s never ending. There’s something so relaxing in organizing and cleaning that only a mom could understand. Trust me , I even have days I even wanna give up on folding laundry but I try to stop and take a second and remind myself that nothing last forever even piles upon piles of unfolded clean laundry

Two weeks ago we kindly received some gorgeous products from @naturalbirthingco for pregnancy and labour, I’ve been using a few of them for just over a week now and I wanted to share with you all what I received and how it’s been benefiting me! Hopefully it will help out some of you mamas to be as well! 😍 Link is in my bio ❤️ Absolutely loving this tee from @millieandblake 🖤. .

• NEW BLOG POST • Two weeks ago we kindly received some gorgeous products from @naturalbirthingco for pregnancy and labour, I’ve been using a few of them for just over a week now and I wanted to share with you all what I received and how it’s been benefiting me! Hopefully it will help out some of you mamas to be as well! 😍 Link is in my bio ❤️ Absolutely loving this tee from @millieandblake 🖤. . . Use code ‘CARTER10’ for discount 😘
Goodbye summer. You were both good to us in all the wonderful moments I’ll cherish forever and brutal to us with your “98° yet feels like 108°” heat. I’ve never been so excited for pumpkin patches, pie making and being able to get everyone buckled in the car without breaking a sweat - I might even try a PSL for the first time (that’s right)!! I’m ready for a NEW season that brings NEW memories and a reNEWed perspective... I’m challenging myself to start each day asking myself: Instead of what can God do FOR me, what can God do THROUGH me? Who’s with me?! #itsfallyall #goodbyesummer #newbeginnings #zozodrewbaby •

Overcast this morning AND it's Taco Tuesday...can Fall get any better than this?  Let's hope this marine layer sticks around, so I can revisit my jeans and pants collection (they're around here somewhere, buried deep in the drawers) that haven't seen the light of day since last May. #socallife ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
On a serious note though, does anyone else (or anyone else's kid) get this excited for Taco Tuesday?  I mean, how does he even know that it's a thing!? I swear, it's more exciting than Kindergarten. 🤷🏻‍♀️🌮

NAME GAMES⭐️
Do name games ever get old? I’d say never. 🤣
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
This is one of my favorite Breakfast Invitations because you can change it up so many ways. 👉🏼The idea is to match your name to the name written on the white paper. ➡️but perhaps you have a toddler that doesn’t like to sit still? (Umm all of them, amiright?!?!) Change things up by placing the basket of names on one side of the room, and the paper another. Breakfast Invitations do not have to be done on your bottom! - think about your child and make adjustments to make it work. 👊🏼
•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Remember, you 💁🏻‍♀️want ☕️, and we also want them 👨‍👧‍👦thinking.💡- that does not mean having to sit still.
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Now, if you like name games as much as I do, you’ll love the roundup in the link in bio. ✌🏻

When you live in an apartment on the top floor you make due with the space you have! A dream of ours is to finally put our roots down and settle into our own house. Not for us but to share it with others. A place where we can build a longer table, not a higher fence. A place where our babies can run safe in a yard with all the other littles from the neighborhood. One of these days✨I believe it!✨ In the mean time, we are going to enjoy our little space to its fullest. Even if that means riding our tricycle in circles on our balcony 🌿🍓 #oubraveavery

7 months with this happy boy. He is the biggest flirt EVER, like seriously, this kid LOVES women and will find a new girlfriend (or 4) everywhere we go! He loves hearing his own voice, playing with my necklaces & pulling all of the hair out of my head in small strands. He thinks Kyle is the funniest & he does the cutest little giggle & “dance” when Kyle gets home from work. He reaches up for us now when we say “i hold you” and it’s the best thing ever. He loves exploring new places and people watching. He will grab anything and put it into his mouth, except for food, he demands to be hand fed like he’s royalty or something 🙄 He loves to play bumper cars with the roomba while he’s in his walker. Gone are the days when he would sit still & smile for a photo - we love you so much Hayes Wyatt!!! You’re our best bud, our cutie little dudie & we’re so proud of you! .

Work it, work it.....
Work it, work it.....
If you’re a mom, you know how exhausting it can get, and today I’d like to remind you to take care of yourself . Because your kids need a healthy mama. When you fly on an airplane , they tell you , that in case of an emergency, if the oxygen masks drop , make sure to place one on yourself , before helping others . Why ? Because if you aren’t feeling well, you can’t help anyone else . Same with us my fellow mamas . A little more than a week ago , I ended up in Emergency because of an excruciating pain in my hand . The pain was unbearable. It’s been hurting me for a while , but I’ve ignored it because I didn’t have time for myself . The tendon and joint got terribly inflamed . I couldn’t move my right arm , couldn’t even dress myself . Of course realized how many things I take for granted . Thank God , the medication helped and I’m doing better . But I realized that I won’t be able to serve my family if I don’t take care of myself . If you’re like me and feel guilty of leaving kids with a babysitter for that one hour , please remember that your kids need you to be healthy and happy.

Day 1/80. And here we go. {Take 2} well, you see... I was supposed to start this program last year and I chickened out. 🐔 yep. Alllll the clucks.
.
I could look at it as a failure, and yes I have them too... MANY of them. But instead, I’m looking at it as NEVER giving up. I am going to conquer it instead and never look back. Will I be perfect? NOPE, nothing is perfect. But will I give it my very best. No doubt. .
Over 80 days, I will need your help! I need cheerleaders, supporters, partners-in-crime, etc. It won’t be easy... but that is the best part. .
Bands, sliders, timed nutrition... HERE I COME. 💥 -
