Usually when we order pizza it’s pretty basic so the boys will eat it. But tonight I ordered my own personal size pizza and I got just what I like....spicy, full of flavour, lots of toppings...delicious!!! . .

What do you think of when you hear the word "joy"? Family? Friends? Alone time? Maybe finding bliss on your yoga mat, or relaxing in a hot bath with a glass of wine. Do you have a hard time finding joy? Our sense of smell can play a huge roll in our mood. On grey, gloomy days, a citrus oil like Lime or Bergamot can immediately bring a bit of sunshine in to your home. Bergamot creates a feeling of self-acceptance and optimism, while Lime elevates. Frankincense is part of my morning routine to balance emotions, and help with my daily struggle against postpartum depression. As someone who has long struggled with stress, anxiety, and depression, I find joy in the ability to create a peaceful atmosphere at home. For my husband, my children, and myself... I use these healing plants to find more joy in life. 🍃 🍃 🍃 #prairiesagemamas #prairiesage #lovewildtribeoilguide #lovewildtribe #albertamoms #doterraessentialoils #doterra #essentialoils #essentialoilmom #emotionalsupport #findyourtribe #hippywitchy #hippywitchymama #hippymama #momlife #momssupportingmoms #naturalliving #oilylife #oilymama #witchymama #witchyvibes #yogamoms #findjoy #findbliss #whatlightsyouup #healingoils #postpartumdepression #postpartum #momstruggle #citrus
When time is tight you have 2 choices, skip your workout or do a shortened workout. This morning I chose to shorten it. . . I knew when we got to our destination we were going for a family skate and then out for supper. The likelihood of me working out at the end of the day, slim to none. So I shortened my workout to 20 minutes and went FULL OUT!!! . . Sweat dripping, heart pumping, workout done! All movement is good movement. Happy Friday!!! . . . . . #allmovementisgoodmovement #sweatyselfie #getitdone #momlife #momof2boys #boymom #sahm #wahm #busymom #hockeymom #mindset #mindsetiseverything #positivity #positivevibes #entreprenuer #investinyourself #selfcare #selflove #parenthood #honestmom #canadiangirl #albertamoms #yycmom #faith #thenextchapter #yesyoucan #blueeyedgirl #alwaysbarefoot #greyhairdontcare
Just back from the @2018.rejuvenation.room where I had my touch up done for my microblading. Not only is this room comforting but was it such a great experience cause it wasn’t painful. Love numbing cream lol. If you are looking to get your eyebrows microbladed, then go visit Maureen at the @2018.rejuvenation.room She is located in #morinville #relaxation She also does #nails #eyelashextensions and #lashliftandtint ✨ 📸: me ✨ #edmontonbeauty #yegmicroblading #microblading #beautyroom #albertabeauty #eyebrowsonfleek #nailsinedmonton #eyebrowlook #stalbertmoms #lookoftheday #morinvillebusiness #yegbusiness #morinvillemoms #albertamoms #edmontonnailtech #shoplocal #shoplocalmorinville #nailsedmonton #nailtech #loveagoodbrow #envyroom #eyeenvy #beautyproducts #albertasmallbusiness #womensupportingwomeninbusiness
Are you exhausted beyond belief? Do you dread going to sleep at night with the thought of your child waking up minutes after you close your eyes? Do you find it hard to start your day in the morning? How will you find time to clean your house? Have a shower (what is that anyway), or even read a book. When we have little ones we want to cherish every minute we have with them but, when they are consistently waking up at night for no apparent reason, we find it hard to cope with the everyday life that is before us. What if, I could change all that, make you look forward to that time your child goes to sleep with plenty of time for you to work on yourself, hubby and you can enjoy spending some QUALITY time together, chat about the day, have adult time. Heck, have that 20-minute shower you have been yearning for... I can do just that for you and your family! How would you feel in less than 5 days from now going to sleep at 9:00 pm (2 hours after your child) and sleeping until 6:00 or 7:00am? Sound too good to be true? It is not, let's make this happen, let's work on you. Book your free 15 minute consultation today to see how WE can get your entire family sleeping. There is a light at the end of the tunnel. https://calendly.com/info-6383 #babesleepconsultant #instasleep #sleeplessnights #notimeforashower #nightime #childwakingmultipletimes #getsleepnow # airdriemoms # #sleeptraining #sleepcoach #babysleepexpert #yycsleepconsultant #albertamoms #infantsleep #airdriemoms #yycmoms #momlife #motherhood #lightattheendofthetunnel
Yes!!! Do something so extraordinary that even your mind is blown!!! . . Instead of playing small, play big... Instead of staying quiet, speak up... Instead of being in your comfort zone, try something new... Instead of waiting, start doing... Instead of wishing, just jump in... . . You are capable of so many things, you just have to take the leap of faith!!! . . . . . #morningmindset #leapoffaith #goforit #momlife #momof2boys #boymom #sahm #wahm #busymom #hockeymom #mindset #mindsetiseverything #positivity #positivevibes #entreprenuer #investinyourself #selfcare #selflove #parenthood #honestmom #canadiangirl #albertamoms #yycmom #faith #thenextchapter #yesyoucan #blueeyedgirl #alwaysbarefoot #greyhairdontcare
I hope you all had a wonderful Valentines Day! I'm feeling about as tired as this cute little cupid right now, after a busy day with the kids. They loved it so much and it was so worth it, but this mama is tired! . .

🍹🍹🍹Is it just me or does this look like a cocktail? I look forward to it like a cocktail. Sounds cliche but it’s changing my life. I usually hit a brick wall in the middle of the day after doing mommy things all morning and then thinking about doing them all evening when all I usually want to do is take a nap. I used to drink pop around now to try and give me a boost, it’s now been two weeks of not a single soda. So happy! This is mommas miracle cocktail. Everyone has to try it. 🍹🍹🍹

Its #throwbackthursday !!! and what better throw back from a sleep consultant than how she got it all wrong🙈!!! . This is my handsome💓, and very lucky husband!😄 . Our little daughter was less than a month old in this picture, and we were exausted! INCLUDING our daughter!!!!! The filter does not show the dark lines on baby or Dad. 😴 . - Dad trying to get her to sleep by bouncing - A pacifier gently held in her mouth👶 - Lights on 💡 - Quite room🤐 - No swaddle🛌 I am cringing here a little!! . If we only knew then what we know now. I think we would have enjoyed the infant stage so much more. Mom was stressed out and anxious unsure what to do to sooth baby.😐 . lets be clear on this, there is no 'training' ' coaching' on babies younger than 3 months or 13lbs and in good health and weight gain.☝️ But what can be thought is encouraging mom and dad not to create poor sleep habits. 📋 . I want to enable other mothers to enjoy their babies stages, and not a haze of sleepless nights and crying tired baby 💞 .

This diffuser combo has me thinking of waterfalls and winding trails. It smells like a forest after the rain, or snow melting on a mountain path. I'm fantasising of melting snow, planting seeds, and spring day-trips to Banff. 🌱 What gets you excited about spring? 🍁 (If you'd love to try this in your diffuser, I combine equal parts of all 3 oils!) • • • #prairiesagemamas #prairiesage #lovewildtribeoilguide #lovewildtribe #albertamoms #okotoksmoms #doterraessentialoils #doterra #essentialoilmom #essentialoils #findyourtribe #goexplore #plantseeds #hippywitchy #hippywitchymama #hippymama #momlife #momssupportingmoms #naturelover #naturalliving #oilylife #oilymama #witchymama #witchyvibes #yogamoms #yycmoms #yogamom #sisterhood #mountainmama

This can be a hard one to accept. I have found myself saying...you made me _______ . But the truth is I’m in control of my reactions, emotions, mood, actions. No one can MAKE me do or feel anything. . . What are you ALLOWING people to make you feel, do, or say? Yes reacting is a normal human emotion. But if the same emotion keeps coming up over and over again, let’s ask ourselves why? And then, what can I do to CHANGE my reaction? . . Don’t give your emotional control over to someone else. Reclaim it and CHOOSE how you will react and feel. . . . . . #morningmindset #thursdayquotes #youareincontrol #momlife #momof2boys #boymom #sahm #wahm #busymom #hockeymom #mindset #mindsetiseverything #positivity #positivevibes #entreprenuer #investinyourself #selfcare #selflove #parenthood #honestmom #canadiangirl #albertamoms #yycmom #faith #thenextchapter #yesyoucan #blueeyedgirl #alwaysbarefoot #greyhairdontcare

Why share my workouts here every day? Because I was like you... Watching, waiting, unsure... Watching, waiting, evaluating... Watching, waiting, contemplating... Watching, hoping, praying... . . Could these at home workouts really help me get my energy back? Feel confident in my skin? Improve my mood? Work for me? . . I watched for so long before I jumped in. So I get it. And if me showing up here helps even one of you watching to KNOW that you can do this too, then I’m gonna keep sharing. Keep showing up. . . And WHEN you are ready, I’ll be here, ready to link arms with you and help you achieve your goals! 😘 drop me a dm! . . . . . #itsuptoyou #trailblazer #yesyoucan #momlife #momof2boys #boymom #sahm #wahm #busymom #hockeymom #mindset #mindsetiseverything #positivity #positivevibes #entreprenuer #investinyourself #selfcare #selflove #parenthood #honestmom #canadiangirl #albertamoms #yycmom #faith #thenextchapter #yesyoucan #blueeyedgirl #alwaysbarefoot #greyhairdontcare
As Dusti and her family prepare for the arrival of baby Domier number 2, I asked her to share what she will be packing in her hospital bag for emotional support! Unfortunately she couldn't pack a bottle of wine, so here is her labour and delivery essential oil arsenal; .☆ "•Clary Calm - obviously with going through labour, having something to help with the uterine contractions is necessary. This oil saved my life when having really horrible period cramps, and I have heard that post labour it is incredibly useful. . •Forgive - Labour is very emotional for me. There is a part of me that has guilt that my first child did not survive birth, it was due to a fatal medical condition and there was nothing that could have been done to save him. but as a mother, I always feel this sense of guilt that I didn't do enough, I could have done more. This blend has allowed me to sit in meditation and truly work through a lot of those guilty feelings. However, those guilty feelings to come to the surface during intense moments, so I will have this blend with me to ensure that I remember to forgive myself and move through the emotions. •Lavender Touch- With my anxiety, I need something to help me feel calm in the case that I get upset. I find lavender really soothing and comforting. •Motivate - When I was in labour last time, I felt like there were a few times that I really was losing it and couldn't quite focus on what I needed to, how to breathe, how to get through the contractions. I love the motivate blend because it really helps me to wake up and feel more focused and centred on what I need to do. " .☆ Thank you Dusti ❤ I can't wait to smell your newborn's head 😍 no, that isn't creepy. It's science.

Starting a new venture is lonely work. That's why this year, I decided I needed to get out there and meet more like-minded mamas on the same journey. I happened to find @mompreneur.ca Brunchin' Boss Moms event and bought myself a ticket. I haven't done any networking for years, so I was a little nervous but I had no reason to be. Vivian was there to greet me at the door and I found myself in room full of kind and wonderful mamas. ❤️ After one event, I made a connection with a successful journalist + freelance writer, and have coffee dates scheduled with a few other lovely business mamas. ☕ It's hard to make time and even harder to put ourselves out there, but it's worth it. 🙋‍♀️ I am beyond grateful to have found this tribe. To all #yycmoms that could use resources, connections and inspiration, come to the next event. Follow @mompreneur.ca for all event details.Your tribe is waiting for you. 👩‍💼👩‍💼👩‍💼 Thanks @ruthpoundwhite for organizing the #onlineactsofkindness challenge! So grateful to take part in supporting others and their incredible work. 💞 #canadianmom  #albertamoms #calgarymoms  #yycentrepreneurs  #yycmomtribe #momswhobrunch #mompreneurlife  #bossmom  #bossmoms  #bossmomlife  #yyclife #yyc  #calgary  #yycliving #yycbusiness #yycnetworking #yycmompreneurs #yycevents #yycbrunch #calgaryliving #findyourtribe #mamatribe #momtribe #mompreneurlifestyle

The power of association...it really is everything!!! It can drag you down. It can lift you up. It can keep you in your comfort zone. It can elevate you to the next level. . . As parents we pay a lot of attention to who our kids are friends with. Are they a positive influence? Are they always getting into trouble together? Are the coming home crying about how they are being treated? Are they both happy to see each other? Do they make good decisions around each other? . . Granted we want the best for our kids. But do we spend as much time thinking about our own association? Do the people around us cheer us on? Encourage us to be better? Celebrate our victories? . . Here’s a good question to ask yourself when you are evaluating relationships...would I want my child to have a friend who treated them like this? . . It’s worth looking at because when you do find your tribe, you bff, your girl gang, and they truly lift you up...there’s nothing like it!!!😘 . . . . . #morningmindset #wednesdaymotivation #girlgang #momlife #momof2boys #boymom #sahm #wahm #busymom #hockeymom #mindset #mindsetiseverything #positivity #positivevibes #entreprenuer #investinyourself #selfcare #selflove #parenthood #honestmom #canadiangirl #albertamoms #yycmom #faith #thenextchapter #yesyoucan #blueeyedgirl #alwaysbarefoot #greyhairdontcare

This morning’s workout went something like this: . Kids awake... Hungry and asking for food... Cartoons on in the background... Walking through my workout space... Trying to jump up and get in my video... Playing with toys... Asking when I will be done... . . And I just kept on going! Why? Because it’s 35 minutes. They can survive for 35 minutes without me tending to their every need!! Can I get an amen???!!!😂 . . Kids will always want you to drop everything for them...because they’re kids. We were the same way too when we were kids. But if you stick with it and teach them that mom is not stopping her workout, they will learn. It takes time and not every day is perfect. But they will eventually see this as uninterrupted Mom time!!!! . . Keep going!!! You are so worth it! . . . . . #keepgoing #momtime #kidswillbekids #momlife #momof2boys #boymom #sahm #wahm #busymom #hockeymom #mindset #mindsetiseverything #positivity #positivevibes #entreprenuer #investinyourself #selfcare #selflove #parenthood #honestmom #canadiangirl #albertamoms #yycmom #faith #thenextchapter #yesyoucan #blueeyedgirl #alwaysbarefoot #greyhairdontcare

Brand love 💕 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @herbivorebotanicals ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In my search to find brands with gentle, natural ingredients I came across Herbivore and as you can see, have yet to try one of their products I didn’t like...⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Coco rose - full body scrub, smells amazing! ⠀⠀⠀⠀ Coconut- milk bath which helps soften skin in the dry winter. I love the bath so anything helps! Kat is also a fan!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Jasmine- body oil smells so good (like everything) I add a few pumps to body cream. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Salt spray- a nice, no crunch beach spray for your hair!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Rose Hibiscus- moisturizing spray. I use it after I wash my face and prevents that tight, dry feeling. Lapis - face oil. Seriously amazing. Period. No break outs. Kat uses this under her make up in the morning, I use it at night! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Prism - a gentle, exfoliating serum. I use it at night with my face oil. Evens skin tone. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Available @sephora ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sent via @planoly #planoly #lifestyle #katandashlifestyle #blog #theeverymom #abmhappylife #abmlifeiscolorful #abmlifeissweet #photosinbetween #thehappynow #livethelittlethings #momstyle #family #canadianliving #albertamoms #momlife #streetstyle #letthembekids #beauty #mombloggers
Dry and sensitive skin is a constant struggle for everyone in my house, especially in winter months. Personally, my face suffers the most. The more often I wash my face the worse it gets. If you ever step out of the shower and feel like you have a sunburn all over your face, you know what I'm talking about. Sore, tight, itchy, flakey skin. I've actually had to stop washing my face because it gets so irritated... *gasp* don't tell Rachel Hollis! What I DO is splash some cold water on my face, pat dry, and apply some moisturizer every night. I use Glaxal Base (go ahead, judge me ladies) mixed with Geranium and Patchouli. The ratio I have found that works the best for my skin is about 10 drops of oil per 2 tablespoons of cream. Geranium oil is a miracle worker for skin problems, whether it is dry skin, acne, or wrinkles... She's got you covered. Patchouli... what isn't it good for?! It smells SOOOO good, and can help clear up eczema, acne, and dandruff with it's awesome anti-inflammatory benefits. Both oils promote blood circulation, and I have yet to get that "greasy" skin feeling. It's so dang nice. Best part? I haven't had an issue with dry, itchy skin since I started using it! ♡ You see that little white tube in the picture up there? That's Correct-X, and it's magic. I'm obviously not going to put face cream on my lips, but those suckers suffer just as bad as the rest of my face. So what am I to do? Throw away the grocery store lip balms that don't actually work, and apply liberal amounts of Correct-X! With Lavender, Frankincense, Tea Tree, Helichrysum and Cedarwood, it is a powerhouse for moisturizing, fighting infection, and healing wounds. It's my new "polysporin", and it works like a dream. How do you incorporate essential oils in to your daily beauty routine? Do you need some help figuring out where to start? Let us know 🧡

When I’m hungry and I need to cook, I have 3 criteria for what makes a good dish: . 1. Simple ingredients... 2. Fast to prepare... 3. Tastes delicious... . Lunch today checked all 3 boxes!!! #winning . . 1 cup sliced mushrooms 2 eggs 1/2 cup cooked rice 2 tsp EVOO Green olives Hot sauce 1/4 cup guacamole . . Cook the mushrooms in the EVOO, when they are almost done push them to the side of the pan. Then add your eggs to scramble. Mix together and add in your pre-cooked rice (mine was leftovers). Cook until everything is warm. Plate and top with olives, hot sauce, and guacamole. . . After I took the picture 😉 I mixed it all together to distribute the flavours. Swipe ⬅️ to see what it actually looked like before I dug in! . . . . . #easyrecipes #simpleingredients #momlife #momof2boys #boymom #sahm #wahm #busymom #hockeymom #mindset #mindsetiseverything #positivity #positivevibes #entreprenuer #investinyourself #selfcare #selflove #parenthood #honestmom #canadiangirl #albertamoms #yycmom #faith #thenextchapter #yesyoucan #blueeyedgirl #alwaysbarefoot #greyhairdontcare
Practicing our pranayama or playing peek-a-boo? ▪ You know what the most annoying thing about receiving inspiration is? It always comes to me when I'm upstairs in Evie's room, rocking her to sleep. I repeat it over and over in my head, in the hopes that I don't forget it before I can put Evelyn in her crib and run for a pen and paper. Why do I get the best ideas when I'm incapable of writing the idea down? Is it the quiet, dark, stillness of the moment? Is it inspiration trying to be a jerk? Who knows. Inspiration does what it wants, and who am I to judge its methods? I am lucky enough to have received it at all. ▪ ▪ ▪ #albertamoms #breathingexercises #hippywitchymama #hippywitchy #lovemybabies #momlife #momlifebelike #momoftwoundertwo #okotoksmoms #oilymama #prana #postpartum #pranayama #peekaboo #thestruggleisreal #witchymama #witchyvibes #witchythings #yogawithkids #yogaeverydamnday #yogamom
Crib mobiles act as a distraction when teaching your child to sleep on their own. Once the music stops, they never want to stop (it's going to drive you crazy.) Cribs should be just bedding and no external sources. They are for sleeping, not playing. If you have a mobile in your child's crib, I strongly recommend removing it. If you would like to hear more about how we can get your child sleeping well without this external source book your free consultation today! https://calendly.com/info-6383 #toddlersleep #sleepconsultant #sleeptraining #babysleepexpert #yycsleepconsultant #infantsleep #motherhood #momlife #itsbedtime #bedtimebattles #bedtimeroutine #yycliving #yycmoms #canadianmom #albertamoms #airdriemoms
My favorite words in this quote... SHE DISCOVERED THAT SHE WAS...!!!! See most of us look at other people and see their greatness. But we miss our own greatness. . . It’s not that we BECOME these things, it’s that we already ARE these things, we’ve just yet to DISCOVER it! . . You are... FIERCE STRONG FULL OF FIRE . . Go after it!!! Whatever your dream is, go get it!!! Because you are more than capable!!!😘 . . . . #morningmindset #tuesdayquotes #youarefierce #momlife #momof2boys #boymom #sahm #wahm #busymom #hockeymom #mindset #mindsetiseverything #positivity #positivevibes #entreprenuer #investinyourself #selfcare #selflove #parenthood #honestmom #canadiangirl #albertamoms #yycmom #faith #thenextchapter #yesyoucan #blueeyedgirl #alwaysbarefoot #greyhairdontcare
YOUR 👏 FEELINGS 👏 ARE 👏 VALID. It can be really easy as mamas to avoid kindness and grace for ourselves when we are constantly thinking of the "you shoulds..." "You should be thankful..." "You should be happier...." "You should be like this..." "You should...." "You should..." "You should" It's been -25 for weeks now. Its damn cold outside. It is so cold that it hurts to breathe in the cold air. Yes, it would also hurt to breathe in -35 cold air, but that doesn't make the -25 cold air less cold. Make sense? We have enough people out there telling us that we are doing everything wrong. Be kind to yourself and know that it's okay to say this is hard! You. Got. This. Mama.
Day 1 of my new workout challenge was a success! It was hard but so worth it! I am thankful that I can fit it in during my lunch break and I am also thankful that I had my workout partner, Lacy, to partake in the fun along with a few other familiar faces! We started strong and will finish off even stronger, @lacethurman ! 💪 After a productive day at work, I now get to watch a movie with the family (one that we have watched at least 40 times already lol) while sneaking in some time to work my business. How was your Monday?
Can we talk about the saying...never miss a Monday? When it comes to fitness the idea behind the saying is, start your week off strong. Because if you start off strong than chances are you will continue strong the rest of the week. . . But what happens when you do miss a Monday? Does that mean you write off the entire week? Does that mean you’ve completely blown it? . . Hell no!!!! It means you get up Tuesday and get after it!!! The all or nothing mantras get you nowhere. If you missed today, Monday, than make Tuesday your best damn workout ever. . . Yes catch phrases are fun and I absolutely say them too 🙋🏻‍♀️ But let’s not get so wrapped up in them that it paralyzes us. . . So here’s to all of you who crushed their Monday workout. AND here’s to all of you who are waking up tomorrow and making Tuesday’s workout amazing!!! . . . . . #makeeverydaycount #tuesdayisgoodtoo #yesyoucan #momlife #momof2boys #boymom #sahm #wahm #busymom #hockeymom #mindset #mindsetiseverything #positivity #positivevibes #entreprenuer #investinyourself #selfcare #selflove #parenthood #honestmom #canadiangirl #albertamoms #yycmom #faith #thenextchapter #yesyoucan #blueeyedgirl #alwaysbarefoot #greyhairdontcare
