How do I stay focused? Schedule. How do I stay motivated? Making plans for my family. Disney is one of our together-events. Of course- we can’t always be there so we also plan smaller local events and activities. ⭐️ the important thing is to have these plans. I don’t say goals. I say plans. Plan to make it happen. Plan to do. It will help keep you motivated in biz. ((Throwback to our vow renewal!))
A peaceful Sunday morning view with the sound of a fountain trickling over rocks and into the pond. For just a few quiet minutes, life doesn't feel so busy or hurried. I'm trying to find more of these moments, and I'm recognizing that I need to be intentional about it. We all need the opportunity to compose ourselves, whether it's to make a plan or a to-do list or just to set a positive mental state of mind. How do you find yourself spending these moments? #peasinapodnannyagency
Good morning!!! It’s Sunday! Planning day! Setting goals! Making things happen and pushing forward! We plan for adversity! We plan for greatness also! Go to brunch! Go for a walk! Listen to a book but start planning your amazing week!
Back home from an amazing 2 week vacation and I was READY to hit those weights again.
So...I did a thing ☺️
I’ve had my eye on a new fitness program releasing later this year. But patience has never been a strong suit of mine 🤷🏻♀️
I decided to gift myself and unlock the VIP early access to the program.
BONUS? I get to be included in an exclusive test group now!! I’m just so fancy sometimes ya know? 💁🏻♀️
(Um, just kidding - there’s nothing fancy about anything I do. I just make it feel that way sometimes 🤣)
Well I just finished a bonus super early access workout and it was exactly what I needed to get back into my routine for the summer!
Quick, but challenging and effective ✅
Hey if you want early access and maybe a spot in the test group I’ll fill you in on how to make it happen!
Leave me a comment and say the word!
the family + I are hatching a plan to move... into a RV... across the country? WHAT?!?
yep. our beautiful family of four with two geriatric furkids are transitioning into a freaking RV and moving cross-country. I can not even fully grasp my head around it. I'm both extremely excited... and a bit nervous with an eerie peaceful underlying vibe. does that even make sense?
I would LOVE any recommendations YOU have to make this transition a tad bit more easy... we have approximately 90 days to declutter - minimize - find a RV - reconstruct it to fit our lifestyle and haul it up north.
any tips? we have places to donate our toys (our therapist who we adore is going to be getting a ton of goodies)... I plan on donating our clothes to a local women's shelter... but we have tons of kitchen gadgets, books, etc. plus, mama needs some help with organization!!!
and let's be real... pinterest is a wee bit overwhelming! no one should be allowed to go onto #pinterest when they are going through a major life transition... ie. just had a new born, trying to homeschool twins, purchasing a new home, transitioning into a RV... it like Alice in Wonderland's tunnel - it sucks you in and in 6 hours, you wake up to 1,000,000 new items PINNED... 60 things on your hubster's "to-do" list and a feeling of "I am not enough." right? ugh!
if you got any organizational - minimizing - or heck, any motivational tidbits... shoot them this way, this #mamabear could use any feedback ya got! but in full honesty, I may not take your advice... but I will listen. (that is a pet peeve of my mom's... I don't always take advice I am given, I like to learn the hard way ;) ha!). .
any thing new on YOUR horizon? let's celebrate the crazy things we got hatching!!!
If you’ve been hanging out with me for awhile here, you know about Memory. Memory and I met 8 years ago when she was junior high age. She lives in Zambia, Africa. 🇿🇲 She is very smart, articulate and I knew the day I met her she had a bright future. ☀️ Bright futures are plenty but means are few where she comes from. A few years ago, Memory GRADUATED 🎓 high school, was the speaker of her class and applied and was accepted to University to become a teacher. This accomplishment alone is BIG!!! Because my friend Tammy and I followed a tug God put on our hearts, we had the $ to pay for it with our Pure Love Scholarship fund. Memory will start her third year of Post secondary this fall, thanks to each and every person who has supported this vision of ours. 👩🏾🎓 You can bet the day I watch her walk that University stage will be one of the best, most happy days of my life. ✝️
What a beautiful day we’re having here in Blighty ☀️ down time with the family on our boat before my week planning session later on ⚜️ Dreams don’t work unless you do 🗝 #ootd products/accessories tagged ♥️
Sunday morning I am waking up grateful. What an amazing time we had last night with our amazing friends. No matter how crazy life gets its so important to find the time for important people in your life. Now it’s time to that crazy mom life. House is all cleaned from the party last night. Now it’s time to go watch my boy play the semi finals in his baseball tournament. Than Hockey with the middle child. Wouldn’t change it for the world. Even though I can use a few more hours of sleep 🤪
Before Mary Kay, I didn’t have many girlfriends. I worked with mostly men at my former job, and I usually hung out with my boyfriend (at the time) and his friends.
I was a fashion blogger, so I loved clothes & jewelry - but knew nothing about makeup & skincare. I used a $1 eyeliner pencil, a $2 mascara & a $3 face wash from Target (then would spend $50 on a dress & $80 at the bar 🙄🤦🏻♀️).
To be honest, I thought direct sales/network marketing was a scam. 😆 In fact, I still wondered that for probably the first year I was in it! 😬 I kept asking myself, is this for real? Are these girls really this nice? Are people really making the money they’re saying they are? 🤷🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️
And then, life happened. I became a single mom. 👩👦 I ended up on food stamps. 😭 I blew through my old 401k. 💸 Application after application to “normal” jobs was turned down. 👎
I thought, I’ve already reached rock bottom... I have this $100 starter kit sitting here... I might as well try to make money with it. I’ve already lost everything - what more do I have to lose!?
The truth was, I had nothing to lose... and everything to gain. 👭💄🙏👯♀️💖
What I’m trying to say is, if I can start my business in the situation I was in - no money, no time, no partner, no faith, no knowledge, and no credentials - you can do it, too. ✨
What is your happiness worth to you? Is it worth $100 just to try? 🤔 I’m glad I did it, and I know these girls are too. 💕 The best part is, there’s room for you! We want you in our tribe!
Hit the link in my bio or DM me for more info! Don’t be shy. ☺️ And if you’re already part of Mary Kay... what’s your story?? I wanna know 👇👇👇
🌟 Do you journal? What do you journal about? What made you start? What keeps you going? What do you truly find is the benefit? Tell me all your thoughts on journaling and why, I’m always considering it but have never jumped in! 🌟

I can’t even begin to tell you how much the past few days have changed me.
Seeing people just like me and what they have accomplished was absolutely amazing. .
My biggest takeaway... work hard, dream big and stay humble.
#teamburninitdown#humble 🙏 #dreambig ✨ #clouds#reachforthestars 🌟
Church before church is a post today since we are driving 9 hours home today! But here is what I want to share...did you see my post last night? I’m still floored at God’s goodness. I don’t share with you our team’s growth and drive to go big this year to brag but to remind you that this world needs our light and we shine brighter when we shine together. Look at what YOU have in your hands: the gifts God gave you, the strengths, your circle of friends, conworkers, family, neighbors, barista, even nanny. Are you leading with love? Purpose? Intention? Boldness? Courage? Fire? Check out Matthew 25:13-40 and I know Jesus will speak to your heart.
My prayer as I come home is that this fire God is lighting in me for HIS purposes wouldn’t be put out by my OWN fears and doubts. I’ve held back so many times with my callings because of my own limitations. My sister Somer Phoebus said “stop putting human limits on a limitless God.” Can I get an amen? Let’s stop playing it safe and go all in, sisters, for His glory. Make it a reflective Sunday.
As a mom, letting go of the things you can't control becomes much more difficult as your children grow up and begin creating lives of their own. Lately, Sacred Mountain + Bergamot is my go-to Diffuser blend.
Sacred Mountain is considered a spiritual oil blend, which supports me feeling very grounded and connected to myself. It has a calming and grounding aroma.
Bergamot is great for supporting stress, which helps me to more easily let go of that which I can't control. It has an uplifting and relaxing aroma.
These two oils are the perfect stressed out mom combo! #stressedoutmom#letitgo#giveittoGod
I’m missing my babies so much right now 😭 But I know this is an amazing opportunity to bring the four self help courses I’ve been dreaming of to life and to YOU!⠀

It’s a totally free guide (with a cool bonus at the end) where I share the fundamentals of creating a happier life - all of which you can start implementing today!⠀
I love putting so much more of my heart into my work now. I hope you check it out! I’ll just be over here counting down the days until I get this cutie back ❤️❤️❤️
