Hi guys 👋🏼 here I am with no makeup on this morning completely unedited for this posts purposes. 😃 I wanted to give you my honest opinion about my experience so far from having microneedling and I only wish you could see my skin in person instead of through my camera phone because it is glowing! I will honestly say when I first had microneedling done I walked out of @yazdaniplasticsurgery office I had a moment of “what the heck did I just do to my face” 🙈 I had little punctures all over and when I came home to my family that was the same reaction. Overnight my face had 50% healed so that was enough relief for me not to worry about it anymore. The days following it continued to get more healed then yesterday I decided to do a little light exfoliation to remove a little dry skin and I was completely surprised at how new and refreshed my skin looked! I wrote Sonia this morning to tell her *see stories* and today again I feel like I have brand new skin. I also noticed that the little brown skin spot I have from sun damage is so much lighter than it was. I’m so happy with the results and I’m less than a week in from having it done. I may be a super tired looking mama, who’s lashes have fallen out due to my babies 😬 but I feel like I’m on my way to having the skin I had before them!! So pleased! @northwestmedica @sonia.vilos.nurseinjector @yazdaniplasticsurgery
Here are a few of the many reasons why we chose to go with @havenmattressco over anyone else. •Haven is a Canadian Company ( woohoo! ) and they use top-quality materials that are sourced in Canada. •They give back to the community through their Safe Haven program, they donate a mattress to a person in need for every 10 mattresses sold. •Haven Mattresses are Canada’s first plant-based memory foam company. They are made from eco-friendly materials, natural latex like rubber tree and bamboo wicking cover. •Choosing a company who is eco-friendly is important to me as we try to live an eco-friendly life and this brand suited us perfectly.
If I haven’t sold you yet, this bed is incredibly comfortable and would be perfect for anyone who has a restless sleeper for a partner. Ella usually tosses and turns during the night. I know this because I’ve received a few kicks to the head in our bed — Mom life! It could be because of the memory foam or because the mattress is so comfortable that she is sleeping better. Either way I’m thankful and so is my head. 😉

Yesterday, as I spent the morning setting up for Ella’s 3rd Birthday all I could think of was my Grandmother. She is like another Mom to me and this little song she sings quite often. I was so excited to show her what I had custom made by @knockonwoodldn 💛 It’s a daily reminder of her and how special of a person she is. If I turn out to be even half of the women she is, I will be happy and my kids will be so lucky. #myangel
Who went to sleep in her big girl bed without hesitation last night?? This girl!! 😃 She slept through the night and woke up as happy as can be. So happy she changed out of her princess dress to share her newest dance routine. 💁🏼♀️ *see stories* Full room reveal on the blog tomorrow.

Someone asked me how I have it all together all of the time and the quick answer to that is that I don’t. These little squares are only a small part of my life. Some days are great, some days aren’t so great and some days it’s somewhere in between. The beauty of getting older is I’ve learned I don’t have to be perfect and I’m a much better version of myself being accepting of my strengths and my faults. I laugh under my breath when someone swears, I like things to be clean but I’m unorganized. I love to be with my friends and family and children. I think I’m the best version of myself when I’m with them. I can usually get anyone to smile. I’m the best at kissing boo boos. I cant seem to stay committed to the gym. When Mia came along, Owen was late every morning for school. I don’t have it all together. 💛 Alot of you ask if I’m always in dresses, I will say that is true. Lol Maybe not bridal gowns but I wear them because I feel comfortable in them. That and workout wear but I don’t often workout. lol. Don’t be hard on yourself but be accepting of yourself. Be proud of you, all the good things about you and the joy you bring to others. No ones perfect and it would be a pretty boring life if we were. Xoxox
My darling Ella will be 3 Saturday and has requested a pink party. 💁🏼♀️ Thank goodness for #Pinterest because she also wants pink food and pink drinks and pink... well everything. Lol. I’m also lucky to have my friend @_partygirlsco_ who’s dropping off pink balloons and tableware. 🤗 Her big girl room has been coming along and we had fun picking out her chandelier together. I still can’t believe she will be 3 you guys... how time flies. 💛 *image found on Pinterest*
Mia turned in to a different species this week and I’ve threatened Ella a thousand times that I would cancel her 3rd Birthday. 😬 Now that they are sleeping, I am going through photos and videos on my phone. Missing them and looking forward to doing it all again tomorrow. 💛 💛 #amotherslove
I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know @westannawellness outside of the Instagram world and she is even more lovely than expected. 💛 Thank you for lending me your sweet family and to your mama @kareydavidsondesign for lending us her beautiful home for the shoot. I’ll never forget us dancing around trying to get the babies to smile - thank goodness for cell phones! 😂 Thank you again. Xoxo #purehappiness

Thank you for everything Owen. Thank you for helping to round up your sisters at dinner time. Thank you for playing with them when I need a moment to clean around the house. Thank you for pretending I’m still 25yrs old. Thank you for your cute wink after you say it. Thank you for asking me a million questions before bed. It always makes me feel like yo my still need me. When I think of you I become so emotional because you are so incredible. You have the biggest heart in the world and you wear it on your sleeve. Thank you for being patient with me when it comes to videos games. Thank you for understanding that the girls take up a lot of my time. Every time I think of “I’ll love you forever” that book by Robert munch, I think of the page where the mother has the pictures of her boy on her wall. So proud. I will never know what I did to deserve you. I will love you every day for the rest of my life. Your mommy. Xox
The very first bridal gown I put on was when I was about 16yrs old when I was a model in a bridal show. Can you believe it? 16! My mom and aunt were with me and they both cried. I was embarrassed and I walked the runway just like it was any other dress. Being with my girls in this beautiful gown shop I totally understand all the emotions now. If and when they choose to get married I will 1000000% be a mess on their wedding day. #amotherslove
