Our sweet baby is 2 today. She’s got NO fear, is a little bit mischievous, easily frustrated, gives the BEST hugs, kind and brings us SO much joy. #clairebear #thisis2 #joyfulmama #sunisshining #staysmallforever
This bathing beauty loves having all her toys within reach, and being able to neatly put them away when she’s done (ok, the last part is a blatant lie 😉). But... mom is sure a happy camper when all the multi- colored foam toys can be stored quickly, and left to dry 🙌.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #babybathtime #bathtoys #kidsbathroom #theeverymom #joyfulmama #realmotherhood #intentionalparenting #themommydiary #simplymamahood #thisjoyfulmoment #thefamilynarrative #organizedmommy #organize #organization #stopdropandmom #motherhoodthroughig #momcommunity #childhoodeveryday #honestlymothering #minnestagrammers #babybath #bathtimefun #momstheword #momstheword #motherhoodsimplified #babygram #candidchildhood #worldoflittles #motherhoodunplugged #munchkinmoments

The sweetest little alarm clock 💕 Hope you all have a good day! Also... for those babies on formula...now that Freya is 1, do you just move onto cows milk or keep some formula...? Thanks! 😊🥛 #spreadhappinesslikehoney
Oh hello feet. What are you doing there? 🤦🏻‍♀️ . I am going to be totally honest with you. Posing just ain’t my thang. 🤪 . I always feel like such a dorky fruit loop getting in front of a camera, regardless who is behind the clickety clacker, aka on the other side and taking my picture. 📸🤢 . Yeah, nope. Awkward dork every time. I just never know what to do with my chin or where to put my arms? 🤷🏻‍♀️🙄 . BUUUUUUUT, there are some exciting things in the pipeline at MLLB headquarters which may see me getting in front of the embarrassment catcher a bit more. Red faced, twitching eye and all. . So, um. Be kind. And DM me with any duck neck tips. In fact any tips at all. So I don’t fall flat on my face. Although if I do, I would totally post that shit anyway lol. 🙌🏻💪🏻😳💩😂 . Have you had to get used to being in front of a camera? How did you deal with the embarrassment? Did you picture everyone in their undies? Tell me all about it below! ❤️❤️❤️ #UndiePalsLol .

My love for you is bigger than words could ever capture, my sweet boy. You are so full of joy, of hope, of promise.

Today was absolutely gorgeous and we made another trip to the zoo. Just like last week, theanimals looked at Bodie more than Bodie looked at the animals 😜. He did at least open his eyes a couple of times today while inside though... progress, right? Ha. Love that this is becoming our little family date spot 👪🦓🦁🐘🐻 || http://liketk.it/2xPKF @liketoknow.it #liketkit #LTKbaby #mynuna #bodiesalyers
Incase you’re wondering why we’re not posting this week,...that’s because Myles has woken up from his newborn “deep sleep” that he had for the first 3 weeks, and all of a sudden the world became so interesting to him 😳 that he’s been only taking cat naps during the day and the rest of the time we are just busy entertaining him!🤷🏻‍♀️
Mold crisis + Renter Tales update!⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ The mold remediation company has gutted the walls, removed the effected porous non-treatable materials (including a section of the carpet pad), sprayed and scrubbed down all of these areas to kill whatever mold was/is present... and are now heating the room with air purifying fans to help catch airborne mold spores.⁣ ⁣⁣ Our mold swab test came back yesterday with ~20 mold strains that were identified; several are more dangerous which unfortunately included the dreaded #BlackMold strain 😷🤦🏻‍♀️🙅🏻‍♀️⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ So we spent hours today trying to locate a physician who has the “proper tests and equipment” to even begin assessing and treating us for our sickness and exposure only to make little headway 😣⁣ ⁣⁣ The Health Departments were not even that helpful as far as recommendations, and there was actually MISINFORMATION that was given from someone at the Salt Lake department... #youhadonejob ⁣ ⁣⁣ So if you or someone you know have ANY experience with this and know where to turn to from here- Please reach out, because we need to talk!⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ As of now, we are still in the supposedly “safe” areas of the home, and are doing our best to spend as much time away from the house as possible, while also trying to let our bodies heal because we are still experiencing toxic mold symptoms. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ We are also doing our best to be as cooperative and patient as possible, even with threats and unfair treatment from an unhappy nasty landlady who seems to be looking for any reason to find a way to fault us for this and possibly take legal action against us, for what I can only assume would be for personal gain.⁣ (yeah, because we obviously LOVED being exposed to black mold! SMH 🤦🏻‍♀️)⁣ ⁣⁣ The cause of this ordeal has been identified as bad exterior seals around the lining of the big bedroom window, which is considered neither parties fault, and should be covered by the homeowners policy.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ So yes, everything is still chaos, and we are up to our eyeballs in new undesirable learning experiences... ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Including boundary violations and standing up against #badlandlord bullying...⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ((Continued in comments))
@shoplittlehippie is live this weekend! Here are a few more items from the first launch.✨ I’m so ecstatic this account is finally launched. I know I can be a wife, a mother, a writer, a creator, an entrepreneur, and tackle whatever else comes my way; I just have to believe in myself. Always. “To play it safe means we’ll always end up with mediocrity.” -Simon Sinek

Friday night, messy bun, coffee and campfire surrounded by the people I love, this was such a needed night together after a crazy hectic week. I'm thankful!
Yesterday it stopped raining for five seconds and everyone decided to head to the @statefairoftx 😉 - First thing, we always grab a Fletchers corny dog and yes we call them corny dogs! As we made our way through the Midway, the auto show & Jack’s favorite, the animals, I was thinking about how much I love making memories and traditions with my guys, including a selfie of us with Big Tex every year for the past three years. And Fletchers and Texas tornado potatoes and corn on the cob and nutty bars and caramel apples. Also very important traditions we wolf down every year 😜 Hope you make some memories with your crew this weekend! ♥️ . . . . . . . . . #darlingmovement #flashesofdelight #joyfulmama #makememories #kimmyintx #letthembelittle #vsco #joyfulmamas #motherhoodrising #sharetheeverymom #theeverygirl #lackofcolor #fall #instagood #everydayIBT #thatsdarling #makingmemories #statefairoftexas #statefair #texas #bigtex #gooutside
I believe that God sent you into my life to give me something to fight for, to show me there is love in this world, to give me hope and to bring me JOY, all the proof in God I need is in YOU. I know He will continue to provide for our needs. . . My sweet girl. I am blessed to be your mama. I love our daily moments of joy together. And for the ones to come. 💕Proverbs 31:10💕 #fieldtripfridays
Still can’t get over these family pics at the “beach”. 💛 I love this sweet little girl soooo much. I swear I can’t look directly at her or my heart might BURST 🤣 #butseriously #babygirl #girlmom #daughter http://liketk.it/2xPHO #liketkit @liketoknow.it

Behind every smile there’s a story. It’s ok to not be perfect and not look or act like someone else. Don’t compare yourself to the people around you or what is on social media. People only show you what they want you to see of them. Even with my posts there’s more to me than I have shared. I have gone through: heart aches, fear, pain, pressures, depression, anxiety, eat disorders and loss. • • What you are going through someone else may have gone through or they are going through something similar. The fact is, don’t think you are less of a person because you are in a season of hardships and struggles. Seasons change and so will what you are going through. • • Don’t feel like you are less of anything because you do not look like someone else or can’t do the things they do. Be who you want to be, because at the end of the day the only person you need to make happy first is yourself. If you are not happy you cannot be the mother/father, sister/brother, grandparent, or friend that the people in your life need. • • If we were all the same this world would be a boring place. Stay different, stay positive, and spread kindness! 💛 • • *My photo is unedited* • • #fitmom #momlife #momoftwo #fitfam #fitnessjourney #fitnessmotivation #momwholifts #gymlife #gymmotivation #fitspiration #workoutmotivation #joyfulmama #momswhoworkout #fitnessgoals #strongnotskinny #staypositive #staydifferent #spreadkindness #youarenotalone #betruetoyourself #bedifferent #beyourself
Out and about this afternoon with Holden and Hollyn. My little man fell hard and to see the chiropractor and what makes a hurt little guy feel better? Target. This little sweet pea was such a good girl and looks adorable in her @shopbinxy hammock.

Behind this picture is a messy life, but today I’m grateful I got to cheer my girl on at her Fun Run. I’m grateful I got to have a lunch date with my hubby and eat the absolute most delicious gluten-free hamburger bun ever. It might be humid outside, but these cooler temps sure are nice. And man do I love sunshine. Ocean breezes. All of those sweet kisses from my babies. Yummy lattes. And going to Target solo. Sigh. It’s been a good, good day. ☀️
Off on her next adventure! #pleasebegoodontheplane

For our 100th post we would like to introduce our little family. This photo really captures the beauty we got to experience in Greece. We were so lucky to visit such an amazing country. Spending 2 weeks island hoping was magical, yet a bit tough with 2 boys that are 2 and under but it was so worth it and highly recommended. . . . . #josefandnoah #ourlittlefamily #100thpost #beautifulsights #familyfirst #beautifulgreece #topofthemountain #candidchildhood #childhoodunpluggled #magicofchildhood #parenthood_moments #momlife #boymom #boydad #momsofinstagram #momtogs #motherhoodthroughinstagram #our_everyday_moments #joyfulmama #blessedlife #blessedfamily #godisgood #matchingboys #weliketomatch

FAMILY // . . You want the best for your family. Always. . That's why we love using essential oils! Immunity, head tension, low tox cleaning, natural purefume, diffusing, DIY beard oil - are just some ways we use essential oils daily. . What I also LOVE is being eco friendly! We re-use and recycle containers and make our own products which means less plastic in landfill. . Do you want the same for your family?
Just when I think I’ve decided on buffet decor, here come the holidays. Guess we’ll be revisiting that on January 2nd.
I have fallen in love with this black and white cactus print! I think it would make amazing sheets - but would be a darling blanket too. Do you prefer it paired with the pink or mint?
Happy Friday friends💕 Meet Penelope, Charlie's new adventure buddy😍 . She originally was going to name her Vampire(which is pretty legit considering her adorable dress) but Charlie ultimately decided on sweet Penelope! We cannot wait to take her with us on all our adventures! I think I need a hashtag for them now🤔😆 let me know your suggestions below👇 . & if you haven't yet, go check out @orangeblossomdollies 💕 They are the CUTEST mom and daughter duo making custom dollies & doggies for your kiddos! Watch their stories for more info about their next drop!💕
He hasn’t been outside for almost a week and he just couldn’t stop looking around 😂😩💙 May your eyes see everything you desire 😘👶🏻
the best kinda friday night ✌🏼 #ronanandever #humanjunglegym
We spent the day at the zoo with Kolby’s class. 🦍🐘🦒 I’m so thankful I was able to go and not have to request off work or miss it because I had to work. If you are tired of missing your kiddos field trips and class parties, DM me or fill out the link on my bio. You can do what I do and make an income. It’s all up to you. You can put in as little or as much into this as you’d like. I know what it’s like to miss out on things and hate it. I’ve been there. 🤗 #joinme
All the praise hands for hormone support🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 This sexy little bottle contains wild yams as a natural form of progesterone (none of that synthetic stuff)😝 and lives on my nightstand. I apply few drops on my wrists morning and night to keep those hormones in check. . If you have ovaries you’re going to want this essential oil blend in your life❤️ Your pre-baby, 1st trimester, postpartum, menopausal, monthly visitor, puberty, all things lady-related self will thank you☺️💃🏼
You don’t fall out of love if love was there... “If you fall in, love it will be forever. Or you’ll never fall in love”. Pretty dangerous idea. Like this post if you aren’t seeing the world through the rose colored glasses and know that love takes work! 😉 . Quite often both men and women are susceptible to Disney way of thinking believing that if they fell in love and experienced mutual feelings, it means that they will stay in love forever, AND without much effort. Then why so many people are going through hard times in their relationships? “They are not doing it right, and I’ll just get lucky!” Sweet and all, but people who hold these views and only expect an amazing ride, pure joy, magic and lack of problems from a relationship won’t be ready for normal down times that aren’t Disney specialty 😉 Happily ever after exists, I’m 100% confident, but it takes work, efforts, and reasonable expectations. We all go through episodes of feeling tired, conflict of interests, money or health issues, just getting used to co-existing with another person who is always different, simply because they are a different human being, and just as no two snowflakes ❄️ have the same pattern, no two humans are exactly the same in their values, needs and wants. . When idealistic people who hope for “happily ever after” with no road curves face those issues, often during the baby’s first year of life, they break up and run elsewhere to look for their peace, quiet, blissful happiness, and perfect Disney ending. . Love, passion, care, and tenderness are indeed very important, but sometimes we all need patience, loyalty, and perseverance. Arguments, misunderstandings and search for the middle ground are a normal part of life, and if we don’t collide at all, there is a possibility we aren’t close/deep/honest/ourselves enough with our partner. What do you think? Do you have Disney world of your relationship? ❤️ Would a series of posts about times in a relationship that are likely to be challenging be helpful?

. 🙄I know. In all honesty, I used to roll my eyes at the shakeology drinkers, too. What was the hype? What would I get from drinking a smoothie and did I have to replace all of my meals?? Gross! . But in December, a coach contacted me after I posted in a mom Facebook group and I thought, what do I have to lose? 🤷🏻‍♀️ I wanted to get healthier and she told me that they’re really yummy, all organic, help with energy, appetite control. She also told me that I didn’t have to replace all of my meals (Just one snack or meal). And she even gave me a couple of individual packets to try. 🥤 . So I purchased a bundle pack that made it silly NOT to get a month supply of shakes and a whole year of workouts 🏃🏻‍♀️ The rest is history, folks! This is NOT another protein shake - it is so much more!🦄 . Immediate benefits of drinking this superfruits shake: 💫 . 1. Felt full and satisfied longer 2. Decreased sweet tooth cravings 3. Improved digestion 4. Decreased bloating 5. Increased energy (and as a new, sleep deprived mom... boy did I need it!) . Long-term benefits in addition to all of the above: . 1. LEAN muscle! 2. Improved strength and growth of hair, nails 3. Continued/maintained weightloss . 8️⃣ months later, I’m still drinking this everyday and getting closer to my fitness goals!!🙌🏻 . 👉🏻If you join my next private coaching group, I will 💯 hook you up with a bundle pack just like I started with! PM me for more details 😇 I’m looking for accountability buddies who want to join me!! You DON’T have to wait until January to start on your fitness goals.
8 m o n t h s ! Cam is still the happiest little boy who will smile at everyone. Still no teeth but they look like they are gonna pop out of his gums any moment.

I am obsessed and in love with these DIY spray misters from dōTERRA! You have so many options for room sprays, counter sprays, body mists, car cleaners...what else can you think to use it for?! Today I made a daily shower cleaner by filling half the bottle with vinegar, half the bottle with water and adding 10 drops Lemon, 10 drops Melaleuca and 5 drops Arborvitae. Spray after each shower to keep things clean and fresh! 🚿 💦 . . . . . #nontoxichome #diycleaning #safeforkids #diymom #mymotherhood #holisticmom #wellnesslifestyle #modernmom #joyfulmama #healthyhome #naturalhealth #healthyhabits #phillymoms #motherhoodsimplified #wellnessmama #mytinytribe #millenialmom #momtips
Happy Weekend, all! Do you like vintage charm? One of my favorites, lately, is a tea canister on the kitchen counter(yeah, I know it's not totally vintage but it has some of the charm) My tea just tastes better and makes me extra happy! The crystal handle reminds me of my grandma's house and the creaking doors they opened. Do you have a specific memory of your grandparents house to share? . . This little canister with the uplifting message reminds me to create special space and time for hospitality... . ☕️Hot chocolate with grandkids . ☕️Decked out breakfast with hubby . ☕️Lazy morning tea sampling with a good friend or two . ☕️Coffee and connection with other grandmas . ☕️a warm welcome to meet someone new . ☕️💬What is one thing you would share with me over tea? . . . . . #grandmarocks #makingmemories ❤️ #dailyencouragement #habitandhome #fulltimefamily #hospitalitydesign #thepointedlife #deeplyrooted #vintageteaparty #grandmablogger #grandmashouse #timetogether #inspiremyinsta #connectinghappiness #connectingpeople #beautifulgrandma #grandmasofinstagram #legacyoflove #shareyourlife #theeverydaygirl #livethelittlethings #beingagrandmarocks #joyfulmama #documentyourday #kingdomfamily #pursuewhatislovely #pursuehappy #womenlivingwell

I’ve never officially introduced myself on Sloane and Liv, so here it goes! Hi, I’m Robin, owner and crafter of Sloane and Liv and Mama to my two sweet girls, Gemma (20 months, far left) and Isla (3 1/2 years, middle). When I’m not designing and creating t-shirts, onesies and hair bows, you can find me at Starbucks sipping tea while working on my PhD research proposal, teaching nursing students in the classroom and clinical/hospital setting, working as an ER nurse in Hamilton’s inner city, playing (likely outside) with my daughters, or out for dinner and drinks with my husband, Ron. Thanks for following me (and reading all the way to the end of that run on sentence 😜) #fridayintroductions
One year ago! Happy to report they still love each other like this. #AvenandFinn #thegiftofeachother
Took the girls to the pumpkin patch today! . McKinli (my niece) has an AMAZING time. I only lost Aubrey twice 🤦🏻‍♀️ don’t judge me. She was in the area she was allowed to be in... just couldn’t find her in the maze. . That’s besides the point!! The girls had a GREAT time! We are all home and resting for the day. . What are you doing this weekend?
Today our little girl is nine month old, this month has been the beginning of new skills, words, expressions, and even some hair growth, my husband says I’m in denial and that she is considered bald but you all should know that she has an inch of hair growing in the back and she is not bald. With that said, it has also been a month of decision making for myself, this month I decided to end my journey with Breastfeeding.I gave it my all, it was rewarding and hard. They tell you it will be a bonding experience when you decide to take it on, they tell you all the benefits of breastfeeding, what they do not tell you is the guilt and sadness you feel when you decided to stop. It was a hard decision, but I felt it was time. I have found peace in that. Breastfeeding is a topic many people have a hard time talking about, I myself find it to be something I don’t say much about. But I believe it is a beautiful thing and should be considered nothing but that. So here to my little girl turning nine month old and everything that comes with it.😅 #normalizebreastfeeding
