When Daddy doesn’t get home for 48 more hours & it might as well be 48 million. 😰🤦🏻♀️ I keep telling myself that shepherding her wild, stubborn, strong willed heart will pay off in the future but mannnnnn, the #struggleisreal some days. All other mamas out there raising bold & attitude rich toddlers unite 👯♀️ I will be over here medicating with cookies because, we don’t have wine 😭 Stay strong out there ladies ✊🏻#threenagerproblems
Throwback to spring break in west Texas, when the kids got to eat candy everyday. See those happy faces? Summer is fast approaching and I confess I haven’t even thought about what we’re doing. Who has plans already — or are you winging it like us? 😅
We have been in such a funk the last two days between the kids not feeling great and packing up the last little things in each of the rooms. I started pulling the play kitchen out tonight and she decided it was good there (I was good with that too since I didn’t want to drag it anymore than that 😜) . Tonight I want to remember these simple happy moments where she lives in her imagination pretending to cook “hot hot hot” food for mom. 💕
My little ones; delighting in the simple things. In their own awesome bubble, mucking about on the bed and watching the concrete truck outside. The shrieks and giggles of delight that filled our house (block/ suburb!!) are the sounds every parent wishes for! For a moment there- amongst the chaos- I was in heaven. These are the moments that I draw on when the coin flips and I have two melt downs happening in tandem (who doesn’t love a tantrum in stereo!) whilst chasing deadlines! Our darling little joy makers. Keepers of our hearts. Makers of our smiles.
Looking for fishies and tadpoles in the water puddles. A wise teacher once told me that playing is the best form of learning for the kiddos before school. So... we play and explore a lot.

Stayed home with T today since he had a high fever when he woke up this morning. Luckily we already had a doctor’s appointment booked for his 12 month needles, but didn’t end up doing them since he still had a slight fever. On another note, the doctor called him a bean stalk 😂 he’s light as a feather but man is he long! My lanky little man ❤️

Tonight, Parker offered to say grace before dinner, and here is what he said: “Dear Jesus, thank you that I am so precious and so loved, and that I am sitting next to dada and drinking beer. And I love beer. In Jesus name, ah-beer.” Oh help me. (Also, I swear he does not drink beer.) 🤦🏼♀️🤷🏼♀️
Did you know I said “no” to this coaching opportunity THREE times? Although I am personable and outgoing - I can be very introverted. I had 294 Facebook friends and I was brand new to Instagram because I share my 2015 Bikini contest Prep and Competitions at the time. I was OCD about my training, my food, How is that a positive message to share with women?!?! My family was NOT supportive nor were they 100% convinced thought it was a scam but told me to, “do whatever you want, hope we don’t lose money.”
My coach had tremendous belief in me. He just told me to work on myself, to workout for my MIND and for balance, to share this (because it really does work!) and inspire others to do the same.
It was that simple.
Turns out he was absolutely right, and I was overthinking everything.
Thank God 🙏🏻
Many hands makes light work is a Proverb that I've been reminding my kids of lately, especially when it comes to chores (like laundry). So I'm not sure who was more excited me seeing the kids working together to pick up trash and make our local nature spot clean again, or them being able to carry out the longest piece of plastic I've ever seen 😳
Stack the blocks! WHY? Put the train on the tracks! WHY? Don’t sit like that! WHY? ... “Why” is her new favorite word and I’m not even sure she really knows what it means. 🤷🏻♀️

Some days are chaotic especially when he is growing up and learning to do what he wants. But man, I can't stay *fake* mad at him. He just know how to win my heart. 😂 Like this day, he did something not nice, (he keeps on whining almost at all the things because he did not take a nap.. obviously 😏) he told me that he wanted a photo. 🤣 Very unusual of him. 😂 Why do kids don't like to take naps tho?! 🤔 📸 momma
A lot of people ask me how I take my photos when I’m reading to my kids, or just in general how I include myself in the shot. I’m here to say that I’m no pro, but I do have a few tricks I’ve learned to make this happen! 1. I use my iPhone 8 Plus for all my photos and videos.
2. I purchased a little tripod from Amazon that makes life easier, but before I had it I would just prop my phone somewhere or use clear packing tape to stick it where I needed it to hang👌🏻😂
Now here’s the big tip - I set my phone on video and record whatever scene I’m trying to capture with my kids and myself. Use the back camera for best quality if possible, not the front portrait camera. We play or read as usual, which is really natural feeling and fun for the kids. Then I go back and watch the video, pause it, and scroll through until I see a shot I like. Take a screenshot, edit the size/lighting and boom! No need to run back and forth with a timer or hide a little clicker button. 😉 (I do still use those sometimes when I’m feeling fancy.) I love being able to capture these moments with my kids and I really like the candid aspect of the shots. I feel like it’s a truer representation of life and that’s what really matters to me. Getting the best photo I can to capture the memory. What is one of your favorite memories that you captured in a photo? #techtip#makingmemories#throwbackthursday#apicturesaysathousandwords#capturethemoment
“A million dreams are keeping me awake”
This song has been on repeat in my head this week and resonates SO much with me. I constantly feel like I’m living in my head, dreaming about this little business of mine. I’m planning my next styled shoot, thinking about blog posts to write, and dreaming about what it could be 💕
What dreams are keeping you awake?!
this little love 💕bug is growing up too fast for my liking. she’s figured out how to roll and now she wants to be on the move all. the. time. 🤦🏼♀️ i’m trying to hold on to these moments as tight as I can before my little baby turns into a little girl. it really does happen so quick. give me all the shnuggles my livy bum 🤱🏼🤱🏼, mama is not ready for all of this 😩😩😩😩😩😩 #motherhood#livybum

Sarah Grace loves being outside just like McKenzi. She had fun on the back of Uncle Caleb’s truck. •
Do your kids like being outside? •

Lunchtime date with my babes. Also their very first encounter with a (baby) shark. Hopefully also their last, though that’s probably wishful thinking. #aussiekids

The universe always knows how to test us...
And this weeks been a doozy for me.
But for the first time in my life, I’m in control.
We have to remember everything in our life happens for our greater good.
And you have the option to react negatively or choose to see the situation as an opportunity to grow and rise above setting an example for others who want to learn.
I see each problem, challenging personality, roadblock, speed bump and uneasy interaction as an opportunity to choose love.
Love heals all wounds.
Choosing love helps me find inner peace.
Choosing love helps me set my ego aside and choose to show kindness towards those who aim to cut me down.
But please don’t perceive my quietness as weakness for I am strong. 💪🏼💜
