Another week, another pair of shoes to share. I love fun, comfortable, and versatile shoes the best. These fit the bill. I just love these gold toned @clarksshoes
Also, this dog. He is special. He hates getting a bath, but loves to get dirty. Thankfully, Jack gave him a bath last night.
Smiling cause it’s almost Thanksgiving and that means I can eat whatever I want! 😍🤤 #cjlagirls
Just wanted to take a quick sec and share how thankful I am for the business opportunity through Young Living since I started in 2014 😌 There are so many reasons, but my biggest one is that I get to stay at home with Landon! A close second is the friends I have made since and new friends I haven’t met yet. A close third is the residual income we can put towards things that need fixing, future vacations, misc bills and giving. ❤️
I’m just so grateful for it all!
To show my appreciation, for the rest of the month I’m sending whoever grabs their kit a welcome bundle packed with cute literature to get you started on this oily life with confidence + a bottle of Christmas Spirit 🎄✨ Hint: you’ll want to grab a membership soon so I can getcha plugged into a fun group where Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals are going down TOMORROW and you don’t want to miss it! It’s gotten better each year and I’m so stoked to see what they have in store this year!
Again, thank you for all the ways you’ve support me by liking posts, commenting or just asking if YL has anything for xyz. Thank you, thank you.
Obsessed with this floral top!!! It is my favorite ever!!! The colors are amazing!!! #cjlagirls

Feeling accomplished as all heck today! Crushed a workout while watching the sun rise, got ready, fed the kids and ran over to the east valley and back just in time for lunch and nap today! Hooray for super rare days like these 💃🏻
Since we came all the way to Texas, I talked my family into a morning at Magnolia Market! The Lemon Lavender Cupcake was AAAAmazing!
Because right now, the only Christmas 🎄 decor going on in our house 🏠 are my red @hunterboots
I am sooooo anxious to #deckthehalls

My Monday called for Goddess + Aussie Rose and an outfit straight up from the 90s to channel my inner Clarissa Explains It All. If you aren’t sure who that is, please keep it to yourself 😂 and don’t make me feel like a grandma! A few years ago I probably would have changed my outfit at the last minute for fear that it was a bit “much” for someone my age (whatever that means!) to be wearing a jumpsuit as a professional. But I’ve decided that rules like that only exist if you want them to. I had such a pep in my step today just being ME. Wear what you want and rock what you want. I double dog dare ya! #whatiwore #cjlagirls
Love a cozy sweater especially when going to the dentist. Booooo ... got either get a tooth pulled or get a root canal .. prob will get it pulled ... ugh I hate my genetics! I could use some Goodluck lately! My baby kitty was sick and just a bad cloud!! But it’s thanksgiving week so trying to see the positives ... 😊 Hope everyone had a good Monday. #cjlagirls
Holly here! Let’s talk Enneagram types! If you don’t know what I’m talking about (no, the Enneagram isn’t the latest fitness craze😉) go check out @yourenneagramcoach
and/or pick up the books The Wisdom of the Enneagram and The Road Back to You. These resources/understanding the 9 different Enneagram types has been absolutely transformative in the way I understand and relate to others, including our marriage
Billy and I are high school sweethearts who’ve been together for nearly 15 years, including during our most transformative teenage/young adult stages. Needless to say, we thought we had each other pegged like the backs of our hands. Enter: Life—joy. grief. loss. birth. death. twins. job changes. Life happens, and it’s good and it’s hard and we as people are dynamic and always-changing (which makes me ever-grateful for the unchanging stability of the Lord, by the way).
Earlier this year I finally dug into my Enneagram resources and really starting learning about what it means that I’m a type 8 and Billy’s a type 1. It’s brought so much clarity and grace into our marriage.
In a sillier sense, it’s also made me realize how different people take on exercise! Being an 8, I’m a go-big-or-go-home type of fitness enthusiast, always craving that endorphin high, loving high-intensity-type-A-workouts—8s are cravers of intensity, so is it any wonder I LOVE HIIT training?! Billy, being a 1, takes on more of a perfectionistic view of exercise—he always wants to know exactly what to do and how to do it, so his form is always flawless and he’s thoughtful and careful about every rep, whereas I’m a loud sweaty mess just wanting to throw down.🙄😏
So tell me-what’s your Enneagram type, and how does your type impact your fitness outlook?

It’s gratitude week. A week where we intentionally slow down the hustle + bustle to focus on family, friends, & all the every day blessings we often take for granted.❤️
Hubby is off all week and even though I can’t take the full week off (helloooo Black Friday prep!🙌🏼) I am carving out intentional time each day to slow down & enjoy this sweet sweet season.
On another note, I’m going to be attempting to make homemade gluten free cinnamon rolls & pumpkin pie this week! What’s your favorite Thanksgiving dish or dessert you look forward to each year?!
Got my coffee in hand, wearing the coziest sweater from @carlyjeanlosangeles
, Christmas tree is already up as of last night. 🎄🎄 It's going to be a gooood week. I get a sneak peak in a few hours with our regional sales manager for @younglivingeo

Speaking of sales, comment below your favorite small shops/handmade shops that you'll be supporting for holiday shopping!! I can't wait to grab stuff from @letterfolk
just to name a few!
I feel like I've been holding out on you guys! Y'all I found this AMAZING clothing line and the clothes are so soft and comfy that I literally want to live in them!!! @carlyjeanlosangeles
is a small business and right now they're offering 30% off everything until Black Friday!!!! To say I'm a little obsessed is an understatement ;) They are just too good not to share ♡! Enjoy #cjlagirls #cjlatagmail
Thanksgiving break means full days with my favorite little buddy! Thankful to slow down, run errands during the middle of the day (what?!), have time to finish my cup of coffee at home, and enjoy all the sweet puppy cuddles. What does your Thanksgiving break look like?! #teacherofinstagram #cjlagirls #cjlatagmail
The joy we feel has little to do with the circumstances of our lives and everything to do with the focus of our lives..
Choose to find, focus on and spread joy 💕
There’s something very satisfying about perfectly filling up your Posh tote. Happy mail going out! Happy Monday! 💕📬
It’s the Monday of a holiday week, so let’s just go ahead and agree that we could all probably use an extra cup of coffee this morning. ☕️ I hit publish on a new blog post this morning all about my current focus on comfort in my closet. I have a not-so-secret confession to make when it comes to my style picks: If it’s not comfortable. If it’s not high waisted. Or, cozy fitting, Or, literally feels like butter, I don’t want it and won’t wear it. Period!
At this point in my postpartum journey, even a year later, I am honestly still using trial-and-error to find my current momstyle. Truly my body has changed since having my babies, not easily described as for better or worse, but everything just fits a little differently than it used to. The better you can dress in a way that fits your curves and enhances your best features, the absolute more confident you will present yourself and feel. I know this isn’t new information, but I still think it’s worth sharing!
Also, I am home with my kids most of the week so I need pieces that are easy to wear, don’t break the bank, and yes, are comfortable enough to get on the floor and crawl around and play with my babies. (Direct link to post in profile.) #hwhlblog #hwhlfashion

Sunday scaries are in full force tonight after four lovely days off (thank you early snow days 🙌🏻). So now I’m dreaming of Thanksgiving break...Apple pie, baby snuggles, visiting friends, family meals, turkey trots, and hugs from my sweet nieces and nephews. I can’t wait. 💕
Today was a day full of rest, coffee and a short walk along the beach. And it turned into a photoshoot that my lovely husband offered to do for my blog. So grateful for his trust and support! And so grateful for where God is leading us to. I’m currently working on a blog post that I cannot wait to share. God has been opening doors for this adventure.
It’s impossible to get a photo where we both look good...
My new job means I get home by the time Rocky is put outside of the house. Apparently, he noticed this and was very emotional and needy this weekend.

It’s been BUSY BUSY since Friday with family being in town and spending as much quality time as possible before Thanksgiving starts with all the extended fam! It has been such a blessing, and also being able to have an extra room for them to stay makes it even better ❤️
I’ve been resting my eyes most of the day, and recharging with snuggles from Ellie girl. I’m so grateful I can still connect with all of you about your fitness goals for the new year! You’ll find me here, bundled up, in my comfy clothes, excited for the last 2 months of the year! Let’s crush it gals!🙈🤗
Our goal for the last two months is that we would start acting like it’s January! Why start new year resolutions when the new year comes?? Why not start now?? ❤️🙌🏼I have a few spots left for you to snag for our group starting this week! Comment below or message me if you want more details! 🤗❤️ •

If you’re wondering if I’m still obsessed with @carlyjeanlosangeles
the answer is yes and also Rocket wants to eat this hat so there’s that. (Also there’s a sale code running right now for this dress and all the other clothes so check it out if you’re into saving money) (also also thank you Johnny for being a good Instagram husband and taking pictures of me and the pup) #cjlagirls #cjlatagmail #cjla
, the best we could get was a half cut off face of Chase 😂 today is #worldpreemieday
and I’m looking back on how far these little twinnies have come from their early entrance. .
Our stay in the NICU was so much shorter than many we met at the hospital, or friends we know...but it gave us a deep appreciation for the doctors and nurses that spend every minute of their shift making sure these teeny miracles are taken care of and thriving. .
Thankful the Lord is letting us experience the JOY of raising all our boys (and the HARD sanctifying moments too) but also that He had a better plan of completing our family with twins vs our plan of 3rd and final baby 😂👌🏻 .
From the day we found out there were two, til now, it’s been DAILY DEPENDENCE on the Lord for their entrance into the world, their NICU stay, and now home as a family of 6. Still taking it day by day, but so incredibly grateful we get to call this family ours. #chaklife
When your friends decide to take pictures of you before dinner you let it happen! Also when someone stops you in the mall and asks if your outfit is from @carlyjeanlosangeles
and asks to feel the fabric of your shirt you let it happen. Then you spend ten minutes talking about your favorite pieces. Love unexpected community 💕
Four years ago we fell in love with kodaline and their music so were thrilled to get tickets to see them. unfortunately they had to cancel their concert that time...we finally got to see them this week and it was so worth the wait 💗💗 #kodalinetour #cjlagirls #cjlatagmail
Community - A feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests and goals
I can’t even begin to express how thankful I am for this community of friends I have made by coaching 💕 It’s so crazy how something you didn’t even know you needed can mean so much to you..
Coaching has blessed my life in countless ways but the friends and opportunities are by far my favorite!.
Are you looking for a community of women to love and support you?! Come join our group of women working on our fitness and helping other ladies do the same!
allllll the heart eyes for quality time with this guy 😍😍😍 almost 17 years together and I still get butterflies on date night 😉❤️ #cjlagirls
Trying to not stress about this situation. Praying those replacement hinges get here before Thursday! All of the grocery shopping is complete so we will pray the second oven is ready to use by thanksgiving 🙏🏻🙈😬 entire outfit is @carlyjeanlosangeles
Thankful for lazy Sundays, La Jolla views, comfy clothes, and quality time with my lobster. Best way to kick off Thanksgiving break! #CJLAGirls #cjlatagmail
