Shout to all of the mom's out there keeping it together.
Your plate is full.
You work (including full-time mommin'). You take care of the house.
Laundry, cleaning, cooking, cleaning, cleaning, cleaning, cleaning..I feel like I'm constantly cleaning. You feel me here, right?
You take care of the kids - Bathtime, bedtime, playtime, shuttling to activities, and homework in addition to making sure they don't injure themselves or set the house on fire.
Now let's top that all off with the stress of the holidays - baking, shopping, parties, choral concerts, decorating, and remembering to move that darn elf!
Some days it starts unraveling. It's too much! Raise your hand if you're with me.🙋♀️ _
This weekend I had a break down. It was all too much. I had to basically smack myself. Suzie, let it go. It's OK.
Don't ever feel like a failure because it's not all perfect. Be kind to yourself. You can't do it all every day.
Some days it's ok to say "no" to playing with the L.O.L dolls.
Some days it's ok to allow a lot of screen time.
Some days it's ok to have cereal for dinner.
Some days it's ok to ignore the pile of dirty dishes for a day (or two 🤐). _
Some days it's ok to send your kid to school in mismatched socks. OK, but seriously, WHERE do the socks go????
Some days, you need to find a quiet corner and just take a few minutes for yourself. We all know going to the bathroom alone itsn't a thing anymore.
Some days you need to sit in your car alone for a few minutes and listen to your favorite song or scroll your feed before heading into the grocery store.
Showering? Pfft. Not required...perhaps even overrated. This what the messy mom bun and yoga pants are for.
The piles of toys everywhere? Don't sweat it.
You are doing an amazing job. I have a ton of RESPECT for you. ❤

It’s what I’m working on. I’ve spent the last several weeks trying to get balanced in my world. Between PartyLite and Photos and medium work and babies; sometimes it’s a little chaotic. I get asked all the time how I manage it all, on top of dealing with My Monster and I never know the answer. I just do. The last few weeks, being able to get it together more with my home and surroundings has helped and now I just have to continue to make it better. It’s a constant struggle, but right now, I feel like I’m doing alright. #brightandbreezie #superauntie #hopingtobeheard #photosbybree #keepingittogether #findingbalance
8 more days until Christmas...wait! What? Yes it’s true!
How do you stay organized during the holiday season? Please share!
I am a big fan of buying different wrapping paper for each kiddo. It helps me keep the presents organized as well as pulling a little personality into each gift.
When you’re both scared and excited but stand your ground so you can keep your shit together...
There are only a few more weeks left in 2018 and I’m freakin’ stoked for 2019 to be here. At the same time I’m also scared because I want to go into it with as little expectations as possible.
If 2018 was an indicator of things to come...well, I’ll just say I’ll be plenty busy.

The statistics tell us that, at this time of year, it’s hard to keep a lid on frazzled emotions. It doesn’t have to be that way. Ask yourself; ‘why do I feel stressed?’ And see the truth that you’re stressed because you’re dwelling in negative thoughts. Thoughts can’t be controlled but the feelings we attach to them can.

When Satan tries to get me down I think of and I'm thankful for the goodness of God thankful for the birth of Jesus Christ my lord and Savior because it could be worse #gettingittogether #keepingittogether
Goodness was my patience tried! We should have just stuck with the gingerbread background in the second picture! 😂⠀
Isn’t it funny how we try to make memories and then it just ends up as a memory that you’d rather not have?! 🤦♀️⠀
Okay. It wasn’t that bad. It was fun and cute and they loved it, but I think there are only 3 gumdrops on the house as Reginald ate the rest before they could get put on. And the legs and arms of the gingerbread man and the top of the tree were also eaten... and I was pretty frustrated. 😂
Hello life with a 2 and 4 year old! ❤️⠀
Who else has made their gingerbread houses? Share your pics! ⠀
P.S. When will you let them eat them?! 😋

Let’s chat!! ❤️
Got my planner out to keep me on track .. one thing that’s thrown me a little bit is where do I write my meals when I’m on nights! At 2am this morning I was slightly peckish and so ate some blueberries and blackberries, a plum, a tangerine and a pear! I then went on to eat a strawberry skinny whip bar (5syns) and Aldi’s sweet and salty popcorn 27g bag 😓 I have no idea of the syn value I’ve been googling andd .. I’m still googling 😂 if I find out I’ll let you know but I was too hungry to just leave them! I also drank a can of Diet Coke which is Syn Free and a Lemsip which probably isn’t Syn Free but when your ill your ill 🤒.. anyway I’ve put the syns for the skinny bar on yesterday’s sheet mainly so I can keep my syns for today 😅 is that cheating? #howmanysyns

All is calm. Bedtime, my favorite time.
Each holiday season I spend time reflecting on the goodness in my life. It is so easy to get caught in the hustle and bustle of the season.
This year I was reluctantly forced to slow down. You see, last week my middle one brought home the stomach flu. 4/5 of us went down in a matter of 3 days. 🤕
Two days later, my youngest brought influenza A in to the house. 3/5 have fallen to this virus.
Today I was overwhelmed with gratitude for these oils. While back at the dr for a second time, we were told that there was no help. Luckily, I knew they were wrong. We went home and grabbed oils for the new symptoms. I’m grateful I can support our bodies and keep my family more comfortable... all thanks to these little brown bottles. 💧
In the midst of this chaos we have tried to keep some of our holiday traditions alive. We may not feel 100%, but we love spending time together.
May all your days be merry and bright.

I was asked the other day “how do you do it? Raise 3 kids, work full time, extra curriculars, house work, and find the time to workout?!”
My first thought was “ok, clearly I’m ok at hiding my hot mess self!” But you know what, it’s NOT easy. And I don’t ever “find” time, I have to actually make the time to do the workouts. I fit them into my life when it works for me. Does my housework get left behind...YEP! But I’m ok with that. Cutting out those 30 minutes a day for me is worth the laundry never getting put away 🤷🏻♀️.
You know what else? I have that exact same “how do you do it?!” thought about a lot of other people who amaze me on the daily! I’m not the only busy person out there and I refuse to use that as an excuse to neglect myself. I may not always be put together, and I certainly hardly ever know what the heck I’m doing lol but something is working!
So if you need me, if you want to join me, I’ll be over here making myself a priority 💕
is the day of Jupiter, the planet of #positivity
, making it the perfect time to learn new things and expand your consciousness....pay #gratitude

Lathering up, and loading the diffusers so we can all reap these benefits! Then I'm gonna sit down and play with my girl, because laughing with her is the cure for anything!!! 💕
