When life has you all kinds of anxious and emotional about leaving the kids for 5 days, you get some crummy news, and you’re being unproductive because you don’t know where to start......you call your mom and ask her to meet you at storytime with the kids because you just need to get out of the house. 🧡
.
Heart full.
Mama time always helps.
Seeing my kids smile is precious.
Now I’m in #naptimehustle mode.

Let’s crush this afternoon! 👊🏽

Fill your soul with people who support and uplift you. 🧡
.
I’ve been told that you are the sum of the five people you spend the most time with and if that’s the case, then dang I feel lucky to have the community of girlfriends I have!
.
As we get ready to leave tomorrow to leave for our big conference I am so excited but I also feel so much anxiety and nervousness, but these girls are my rock. I’m so grateful for the ways they bring me back down to reality and listen when I need it most.
.
I am a major introvert in case you didn’t know, so events like these where I’m surrounded by people all day, where I’ve had to leave my babies, where I’m speaking on a big stage, wearing fancy dresses that I don’t feel comfortable in, and hosting events and making sure everything goes smoothly....it always gives me so much anxiety. 🙈
.
But then I remember that I built this. This week is a celebration of all my team’s accomplishments and it’s one  of the only times I get to be with a bunch of my coaches from across the country! It’s such an amazing experience and always so much fun. All the anxiety I feel prior is just Satan trying to get in my head.
.
So deep breaths.
Prioritizing the things that are most important today over what doesn’t really matter.
Spending as much time as possible playing with my babies.
Getting all the kisses and snuggles and giggles.
Writing out some notes for my speech so I’m not quite as nervous.
Reminding myself that the most important thing is not the dresses I wear, but the message and mission I deliver. Who cares what I wear!
.
There’s an insurmountable amount of anxieties and things that creep into my head when a huge event like this comes up, but I have to bring myself back down to what’s important. 🧡

Inspiration Crew, time to celebrate our team being a 2X Elite TOP TEN TEAM!!! 💃🏽✨

“But the most beautiful things in life are not things. They’re people, places, memories and pictures. They’re feelings and moments, and smiles, and laughter.” 🧡
.
Shared some of my favorite beauty essentials just now on my stories and it ended with some tackle football with my little man and Sky trying to keep up too. It’s these moments that I remember most out of any.
.
Playtime by the bright afternoon sun in our bedroom. Adventure. Exploring. Pure childlike laughter. It’s the best kind. ✨

Sleepy eyes but up early and did some true #momhustle work while mommin’ my babies too. 🧡
.
Emails and messages answered, checked in with some of my coaches, peeked on my accountability group babes, ordered groceries, called my alteration place, and got some snuggles, coloring and playtime in too!
.
Building a life of our dreams has been so much fun and so much crazy over the last few years, but not having to race out the door to leave my kiddos all day has been the greatest blessing ever.
.
Getting a few hours of mommy time to get my dress altered, nails done and run one other place and then I’m back with my babes because goodness I’m going to miss them this week while we are gone.
.
Work hard for your dreams and give yourself grace. So much grace. You’re doing a good job. You are enough. (Thanks to my hubby for constantly bringing me back to the truth of remembering this myself!)
.
Make it a great Monday! XOXO! ✌🏽

“One life on this earth is all that we get, whether it is enough or not enough, and the obvious conclusion would seem to be that at the very least we are fools if we do not live it as fully and bravely and beautifully as we can.”
.
As I prepare to see my team this week, to take the stage and accept our recognition as a Top Ten Superstar Team, and speak to 20,000 people training them in a topic I’m so passionate about, I’m overwhelmed with how life has evolved over the last few years.
.
Leaving my job as a teacher, having two babies, starting an apparel business, and a whole lot of other life events within these last three and a half years of being a mompreneur from home. I never could have written all that has happened. I never could have envisioned this life.
.
God sure surprised us in the craziest and most fantastic of ways; testing us, blessing us, and showing us so much grace and mercy. We are so incredibly grateful and overwhelmed by this great adventure called life. 🧡
.
Never say never. And never doubt what He can do. The Big Man upstairs has a story written out for you already, so all you need to do is live it out. Fully. Wholly. Passionately. Bravely. ✌🏽
.
So excited to celebrate my Inspiration Crew and all their accomplishments. They truly embody what it looks like to bravely and unapologetically inspire and empower those around them daily. Blessed to call them my tribe. ✨

And sometimes slow afternoons with no plans at all, homemade dinners, and giggles at the dinner table turn out to be some of the best. Nothing fancy here for Father’s Day dinner, but we like it just fine like that. 🧡

Happy Father’s Day! You’re their #1 guy! 🧡
Happy Father’s Day! You’re their #1  guy! 🧡
Happy Father’s Day to the man who makes us laugh when we need it most, who protects and cares, who selflessly serves and asks for nothing in return. Celebrating you today comes no where close to expressing how grateful I am that our babies were blessed with you as their daddy and that I’m lucky enough to call you my husband.
.
For all the ways you bring our family together with so much love, grace, and laughter, we are incredibly blessed by you. 🧡
.
Thanks for all you do.
Thanks for all your love.
Thanks for all your grace.
Thanks for all your protection.
Thanks for all your leadership.
Thanks for all your jokes.
Thanks for all your compassion.
Thanks for simply being HERE when we need you most.
We love you. 💕

Three trips in two months has this mama going crazy. 🤪
.
For one I hate packing. But even worse than packing is leaving my babies. Especially when they are at the best age right now and beginning to play together and just be so stinking cute. It makes me so emotional!
.
Late night packing it is so we can enjoy celebrating my sweet hubby for Father’s Day tomorrow and soak up as much time as possible with my babes before we leave on Wednesday. 😭
.
Upside to all this? I’m getting better at packing my hubby and I into one suitcase. Haha!

Oh mama bear, that tummy may never look the same as it did before, but believe me, it’s better. The story behind it is powerful and one of strength and perseverance. It tells the journey of precious lives that were nurtured safely because of the home it provided.
.
Be gentle with yourselves mamas. Sure there’s marks and extra skin that hangs when you run too fast, pull on your favorite skinny jeans, or crawl on hands and knees after your babies, but think about why it’s there. I don’t know about you, but every time I see their little faces, I immediately love the skin I’m in even more. 🧡
.
There’s a lot of perfection out there about what a mother’s body should “get back to” after babies, but I say to HECK with that! ✌🏽
.
How about just loving the skin we’re in?
How about exercising being a thing that makes us feel energized and good, not because we want to get our bodies back?
How about more grace for all the changes we go through?
How about more of that and less judgement or pulling the imperfections apart?
.
Motherhood is raw and beautiful. I’m so grateful for this community to share it with so that you know, as well as I do, that we are not alone. In fact, we are in this together simply doing our best and constantly overcoming the internal mindset that we’re not doing enough.
.
Mommy marks and all, YOU’RE BEAUTIFUL! Believe it today. ✨
.
Tag a mommy friend who needs to hear it today!

Big smiles and squinty-eyed grins this morning because being a mama is not always stress-free, but today it’s been pretty dang good for the soul. 🧡

This little munchkin is almost walking and man I wanna tackle her to the ground and keep her tiny and needing me forever. #timestopflying #neverland #letthembelittle #babygirlforlife

Summertime is water playtime giggles, bug bites and sunscreen. ✌🏽Slow afternoons with these two are some of my favorites. They make every moment memory worthy. 🧡

"Happiness is letting go of what you think your life is supposed to look like and celebrating it for everything that it is." ✨
.
As I’ve been sharing in my sneak peek into coaching on my team today, it has me reminiscing on everything I THOUGHT my life would be like and everything it actually is. God must be giggling up in Heaven saying “Gotcha sweetheart! I know you like control, but I had other plans for your life that you never could have expected!”
.
Like for real though. I legit never could have dreamt up this life. From teacher to stay at home, work from home mompreneur in 3 1/2 years. Family events I never would have expected. Two beautiful babies. Friendships I never could have foreseen. Blowing my teaching income out of the water. Starting a successful apparel company. It’s all insane when I really sit down and think about it all. 🙈
.
So next time you start to think that you need to have your life all planned out (ehem, that was me) or that you KNOW what is best, take a minute and just enjoy what it is for the moment. You never know what could change and when. Embrace it!
.
So tell me, what is one thing that you never expected to have, be, or experience in your life right now. Life surprises are sometimes some of the best! 🧡

HEY there ladies! I am looking FOR YOU!
.
Are you a mama, or maybe a mama-to-be and looking for something more out of life? Do you just KNOW deep down that there is more to life than the mundane everyday routine we get into so often? That was me too!
.
So, that's why I am searching for YOU.🧡
.
15 mamas, bossbabes, and mompreneur wannabees. I want to personally mentor you and show you how I:
.
-wake up every day to a uniform of yoga pants and workout tops
-drink chocolate smoothies every day which have changed my health completely
-workout to programs in my basement while my kids crawl all over me and yet have been able to get into the best shape of my life even after babies
-have inherited the most amazing community of supportive and positive friends in my adult life
-get to travel "for work" more than I ever have before WITH MY FAMILY by my side
-have completely transformed my life from the inside out emotionally, physically, and financially
.
You don't have to have a business background, or be in incredible shape. You don't have to know everything there is to know about healthy living, or have a huge network of people you are friends with. I didn’t!
.
BUT, what you do need is......HEART and HUSTLE.
.
• You need a desire to help others and become your best self, physically and emotionally.
• A desire to create a business just for you, whatever that looks like, from the comfort of your home or on the go.
• A desire for more out of life, but not at the expense of being mommy and wifey and taking you away for more time.
• A desire to share your journey and relate to other women through accountability and inspiration.
• A desire to create your own schedule. To be your own boss.
• A desire to simply be a PART of something MORE. A community of empowerment and positivity.
.
If any of this sounds like something you would LOVE to learn more about, then PLEASE join my little sneak peek info group tomorrow (link in bio) or comment below and I’ll send you the link!
.
I can't wait to meet you! 💗💗 XOXO.
.

Our first family outing for a Brave’s game was so fun. A little hot, but the kids did great!
.
We so often put things off because of nap times or because everything is not lined up perfectly, but not today! We needed some spontaneity, so we cashed in on our flexible schedules and took the afternoon off to spend it with our babes. ❤️
.
Are you a never break the nap schedule kinda mama, or if an opportunity presents itself, do you alter the schedule and go with the flow? On any given day I’m one or the other, but today was a go with the flow kinda day! 👌🏽
