Another peak into the New Year 🖤 .
I feel bad I haven’t been as present here and have lost touch with most of you 😔 My goal for 2019 is to hopefully find more time/mental space to come back & be more engaged with you all 🤗

Kicking off Monday morning with a room full of my favorite souls ✨✨✨ #myjobmypassion
Better days are ahead. They’re called Friday and Saturday. 😜
Fun fact: I found out I was pregnant a couple days after this trip! 😍😍
Today nothing else will matter. Today we will cuddle and nap together on the couch. Today we will just love each other and share all the kisses.
Today we survived our first round of immunizations. Eme did fantastic, mommy sweat like crazy waiting for it to happen! Now we're high on tylenol and ready to snuggle!
Being a mom is tough!!! But how amazing is this reward?!
So excited cuz this man starts Christmas/Post Deployment leave in a few days. He also finishes his College classes and will get to have a break from school for a few weeks. Which means we will FINALLY get to spend a ton of time with him since he’s been home from Deployment! So proud of what a hard working man you are my love😍😘
my best friend and most amazing husband ❤️ this isn’t an anniversary or bday post. It’s a “just because I love him” kind of post ☺️ these quick snaps pretty much sum up how we are lol we’re immature and we don’t care lol he’s so random and he’s always such a goof. He makes the kids and me laugh constantly. God truly blessed me with such a great man who takes care of me and my family and gives us the world. I don’t know what I’d ever do without him!
I found this sign at a local shop and now it hangs in my kiddos bathroom. It’s one of my favorite things to tell them (obsessed with the movie it’s from). I hope they remember this every morning when they get ready for the day and every evening before bed.
I see this on bumper stickers and memes, and all I can think is that the data leading up to deployment are the WORST! Am I right? That pre-deployment stage is full of stress and rushing around and waves of emotions. Honestly, things always get a little easier for me once deployment begins and we can get into a routine. It's something I wish people had told me before the first deployment, and a tip I make sure to share with new spouses in my Deployment Masterclass. If you are facing deployment, the weeks leading up to it can make you feel like a mess. But you can definitely get through it, and I'm here to help!

Late night gym time after the baby went to bed last night! I'm sore as anything but happy to have gone.
Wanna build your core like a banchee??? THEN DO THIS!! And YES the neighbors think I’m crazy and I don’t care.😘😘😘
Yesterday was a beautiful day and I loved watching these kids build a hotel for bugs, worms, and spiders. It's free because bugs don't have any money. 😁
Sometimes I worry they're cooped up too much and I'm not doing enough to encourage free outdoor play, but this eased my mind. Daisy worked on it longer than the other two and made sure the were plenty of beds and blankets and food for them. She's a nurturer, that one.
Hi I’m Courtney and I’m on a Diet 🤦🏻♀️ .
SIIIIKE 🤪 Diets are TOTALLY lame 🙅🏻♀️ .
I’m just over here balancing life, and I Thoroughly enjoy losing weight HAPPILY! Do you wanna just be like - ya know - healthy with me in 2019?! .
If not, cool. Carry On Bro ☺️ .
But IF YOU DO 🎉 🎉 🎉🎉 show me some Emoji Love Below 🥂🥂🥂and we can start talking about your Healthy and Balanced New Year! I got you Sis! 💋🎉
Yesterday I watched as some of our families big dreams simultaneously went up in flames 🔥 -
I cried. I worked out just to burn off some steam. I vented to two close friends. Then I stopped and prayed, and prayed and prayed. Not that things would go my way, but that God would allow me to trust in him and let go of the need to control. -
Today I am filled with more faith than I’ve ever experienced. I don’t know what next year holds for our family. However, God clearly has bigger plans for us. God doesn’t steer you in the complete opposite direction that you’re heading for nothing. -
So I cannot control where the army moves us. I cannot control the length of the deployment, when my husband leaves for school, training, the list goes on and on. What I can control is how I react to it (after I’ve acknowledged my feelings and truly embraced them) and trusting that with every obstacle we face, something new grows from it. -
So I’m going to snuggle up with my favorite cup of coffee and focus on the things I can control and simply have faith.

Stop holding yourself back! If you are unhappy with where you are at, make a change. You, and only YOU can make that change.
Change doesn’t have be be hard or complicated. Start small. Tell yourself I’m going to add more veggies to my meals. I’m going to add in 30 minutes of exercise 3 days a week. I’m going to cut out one soda a day and drink more water. I’m going to be more mindful of what I eat. It doesn’t have to be all or nothing. Starting small and simple, you are more likely to stick to it.
I know it’s a busy time of year, but the New Year is almost here! Why wait to start. I promise if you start RIGHT NOW, by the time 2019 gets here you will already be feeling so much better.
So make the decision to end 2018 STRONG!
Pictures from hubby’s Christmas party for the wing last Saturday! We had so much fun!
'Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward. For there, you have been, and there you will always long to return.”
On this day in 1903, Orville and Wilbur proved man can fly. For flyboys and flygirls everywhere, the love affair with aviation continues as they ‘slip the surly bonds of earth and touch the face of God’.🇺🇸
We said our final goodbyes to our home in Colorado. Our time here was so special to me and I will forever cherish this state. We bought our first home together, I got a college degree, and we welcomed our first child. So much good came out of living in Colorado. I will miss the the outdoor adventures, the fresh air, and those beautiful mountains. Colorado, you will always have a special place in my heart. Goodbye for now ❤️

Musical Monday Lyrics come from Man of La Mancha, otherwise known as Don Quixote. You've probably heard that he fights giants disguised as windmills, and thinks himself a knight. That, my friends, is a visionary. Others may see him as mad, but in his mind and more importantly, in his heart, Sir Quixote is braver than brave, ready to battle any foe to achieve the impossible.
I tend to dream a lot. To think impossible things can happen. I think that's a big part of aspiring to more. I want to find the unreachable and then reach out just to see how unreachable it is. Everyone says things are impossible, until they aren't. Remember, at one time it was impossible to put man on the moon. Now we are trying to put them on Mars. Dream the Impossible Dream.
I know it involves a lot of "Tilting at Windmills." But some of my giants are real. The weight was real. The challenge to write a book is real. Consistently bettering myself day after day, week after week, month after month, and year after year is real. And it can be really hard to do. Life can be a Giant Windmill, impossible to take down.
But it's only impossible until you do it. It's only unreachable until you stretch further than you ever have before. It's a dream. It's a star. And it's yours for the taking!

So thankful for them! Especially since they put up with all my Christmas activities even if they think they are silly! Can’t believe 4.5 years ago @atcmikelima
asked me to coffee. And even more thankful we get to spend this Christmas together. So many military families are spending time are apart from their loved ones. They serve with their lives and time. Praying for everyone that are separated during this holiday season.
Baby it’s cold outside ❄️ Nothing like being way up in the mountains soaking up this scenery ‼️ Blessed
So stop waiting.... Until your car or home is paid off. Until you have a new car or home. Until you are done with school. Until you go back to school. Until you lose 10 more pounds. Until you gain 10 pounds. Until you get married. Until you get a divorce. Until you have kids. Until your kids grow up. Until you get more money. Until you retire. Until summer. Until spring. Until winter. Until fall. Until. Until. Until.
You may have a million reasons not to get started now. But, deep down, none of them can be as compelling as your desire to CHANGE, GROW, and SUCCEED. In a month or a year or five years from now you may have only one regret: that you didn't start now. TODAY MATTERS. The way you spend today really can change your life. But the first decision you must make is to begin.
Start today on what sets your soul on fire. Today. Because tomorrow is not promised. Beautiful girl, you were made to do powerful things ❤✌
