I got to use my mermaid tea tonight! 🧜🏻♀️ I’m obsessed!! My skin is soft and shimmery! @houseofintuition
I need selfie lessons apparently. 😆 and also, I’m so sad summer is over! It flew by waaaay too quickly. I had big goals about accomplishing things around the house and making some memories. The house things didn’t happen. And the work things didn’t happen. But the memories did, so that means summer was a success. ✨✨✨. My friend sent me the best quote. I need to paint it up and stick it on my wall! “A clean house is a sign of an utterly wasted life.” 🤣🤣🤣😬 and in case you were wondering; we are definitely NOT wasting our life here in the Funk home . #makingmemories #funksummerfunk #seekmoments
Are you excited for the new fall line? 🍂 I am going to share it with you tomorrow night LIVE! 💃🏼 So set your alarms for tomorrow at 8:00 PM CST! .
Striped oversized Shirt
Stay my happy little baby forever ❤️
Broke out the Christmas leggings in August, lol. .
30 min martial arts workout tonight in my living room after enjoying some delicious Mexican food & family time! .
It's called #balance
I resisted going overboard on the chip bowl & I still got something very satisfyingly delicious. .
Eat right, not less👌#momstrong
I knew my heart was going to ache this week.
One year ago today, after days of driving, months of working, and years of dreaming, we made it to that beach. It was the beginning of our two-month road trip, when we lived all squished together, the five of us, and number six, our daughter, still a secret in my womb.
It was the beginning of one of the greatest things I have ever done with my life, that trip.
Those weeks spent side-by-side, figuring out my favorite people. Discovering who they are in entirely new ways.
I knew my heart would ache as these photos begin passing through my Facebook memories.
This summer stands as a drastic contrast. Our calendar from the past three months holds an awful lot of scratched-out adventures. Life threw us the unexpected, and it crowded out the hoped-for.
And yet, looking back, despite the disappointments, this summer was not a disappointment. Not in the least. It was one for the books, as each must be, no matter the narrative, because we only get so many, and God has good to show us in every single one of them.
He showed us a whole lot of good in this one.
Good in the messy, in the struggle, in the hard, in the disappointment.
He showed up.
He did for you, too, I promise. Even if you cannot see it now.
Even if you stand at the threshold of fall and school and a new season, and you look back on a summer of disappointment.
Look in the cracks. In the crevices. In the hardest places.
He is there, I promise.
So let's stop wishing for the yesteryear's. Let's give thanks for them, and this year, too. And let's walk forward into all the promise He holds for us in this new place.
Every chapter is good, friends. When we see Him in it.
today, we buried the babes in the sand ! 🤙🏼
daddy did the diggin’, mama made the mermaid tail, Lexi insisted on creating seashell ‘boobies’ 🧜🏻♀️🙈 #THREEnager
& Emmett was a new species of shark..🦈 but daddy’s fins weren’t exactly G-rated 😳😜 #boyswillbeboys
we definitely got a good laugh out of it though! 😂
these definitely are the days❣️
Superfood shakes, booty day, yoga, and birthday parties! What a day!
Sometimes these weekends seem to go by so quickly that feel like they’re a blur but I’m happy to spend it with this little girl either way 💕
It’s T-Minus two weeks until school starts for us which means this mom is on project clean out with a focus on ~ less is more for the 2018-2019 school year!!
The beginning of the school is always exciting but full of OVERWHELM and lots of ADJUSTING. It’s back to early bedtimes, early mornings 😳, packing lunches, sorting through backpacks, endless amounts of papers, crabby kids because their brains are on information overload or how about the hangry attitudes because their starving and finally; let’s not forget to mention all the homework they’ll have which sometimes I can’t even do with all the new teachings and lesson work created in this awesome twentieth century we live in..... 🤷🏻♀️.
As parents we have so much on our plates. And this is on top of our regular responsibilities like working, laundry, activities, and everything else! It’s all temporary but man, it’s a lot of pressure and worry. One thing I know for sure is that this year; I am determined to ONLY volunteer for what I can handle, get a better handle on my kiddos nutrition & continue my self care morning routine (for sanity not vanity 🤪 👨👩👧👦) which means waking up prior to my kids and getting in my coffee, my #plantbased
power juice, PD, gratitude journal and press play on my 30 min workout program. No doubt I’m not perfect and my kids probably ate more school lunch last year than I’d like to admit but we’re a constant work in progress and setting goals, having a vision and a plan for what you want to happen is the first and most important step. .
With that said, where do we start? 😂 .
Well, what if you had an amazing community to turn to where you could get support, virtual exercise programs, meal plans for yourself PLUS 4 week’s of easy school lunch ideas to take with you and ACCOUNTABILITY to actually implement EVERYTHING? It’s proven that kids (ok, adults too) who eat healthy & exercise 30 min a day have improved cognition function (especially memory), reduced absenteeism, and improved mood! Um, I’m all for that for ME & for them and to change things up would be amazing cuz I think my Littles are sick of the same old PB&J.... 🙈. .

"La speranza è un sogno ad occhi aperti"
La foto non è delle migliori, vorrei che questa lanterna porti il mio desiderio il più in alto possibile e che un giorno, spero presto si rializzi!
E che tutti i vostri sogni diventino realtà ❤️
Sometimes life can throw curve balls at you and you think to yourself “can I do this...?” The answer is yes. Life is all about choices and every choice you make can either equip you to tackle your situation, or challenge you to shake it off and start over. Whatever chapter you are currently in, you are capable and strong enough to overcome it. You were born for this. God created you for such a time as this. You already have all the tools and abilities needed to conquer what is put in front of you. Sometimes that means reaching out to people and resources around you to to guide you, but you’ll get through it. Just remember you were made for this. 💪🏼
Can we all agree that summer should go on forever?! .
Last night we were at the beach and tonight it is Sam’s first big trip out for frozen yogurt 😍
I think part of my love for the south is that summer lasts just a bit longer here ❤️
Beaches, ice cream, golf cart rides, after dinner neighborhood play....it all makes my heart so happy 💕
Anyone else LOVE summer?!
Prompt 12 : The patronus
It takes a really powerful, strong happy memory to conjure up a patronus to pack away the lethal Dementors!!! One does have a lot of memories which are ecstatic, and in the recent times, it is Li'l Du's milestones that make a whole deal to me!!!!
Right from the first cry, to enchanting smile, the turn over which took literally ages, the neck balance, the stumbling crawls, the foundering first steps, the honey coated first words ( recently he started calling me by my name, Saaajeee) , the first grain of rice he ate by himself, every single thing he does for the first time or maybe even the hundredth time leaves my heart filled with gratitude and love! Definitely my blissful memories that sure would drive away any wretched soul sucking Dementor away!!!
What do you think my patronus is going to be? A peacock : P, if you know what I mean and why :P!!!!!
While considering the current circumstances, when Li'l Du casts " Expecto Patronum"... There's going to be a cute Panda chasing away those demons!! (Our current favorite, might change tomorrow, mind you :P)) _________________________________

FAQ: How do I handle having SEVEN children? I can tell you that back when I had just two kids I felt more overwhelmed than I do now. My first two were only 17 months apart. 😅😅 That means I had two kids in diapers at the same time, two kids that I couldn’t be diplomatic with whatsoever, & I was completely new to parenting, so everything was a huge shock to my system!🤯 Like, how do you get your kid to STOP taking everything out of your cabinets for the 50th time???!!!! 😩 Don’t think that just because you have one or two or three children that you don’t have it as challenging as people with more children. Now, I have older kids to help, a great support system from my spouse & family as well as some experience under my belt! I admit, I totally use electronic devices & TV to occupy their time 😬🙈 But, yes, it’s busy. It can be physically & emotionally exhausting. All parenting can! The toddler years & the teenage years are both hard. Just a different kind of hard. But ultimately, I wouldn’t change it for the world! It’s the most rewarding thing I’ve experienced! ♥️ *

Recovery is a process and a jerk. I try to be as vulnerable as possible in hopes of encouraging people and helping them realize that they aren’t alone. I’m gonna be real for a second sometimes this illness sucks. Whether it’s getting bills payed or forgetting just basic stuff, sometimes bipolar is a jerk. I got this, you got this, we are going to have more good days than bad and not let this define us right?
I’m a P R O at procrastination. Like fr. —————————————————
I like to “think” I have enough time until the clock strikes midnight and I’m running around like Sh!+...... You need what for school? I need this by tomorrow or I have to have this done by Monday and before you know it I’m squealing tires to the nearest market for juice boxes and up late folding the kids clothes etc. Things feel worse than what they really are just from the pressure of not being on my A game. As a single mom things can unravel fast.
Sometimes we cause a mommy pile up of things we need to take care due to lack of launch and procrastination. I admit! •
I’m setting a goal this school year to stay on top of all things big and small. All I can do is try my best right!? What things are you mommas working on this school year that didn’t go over well last?
I hope he always loves taking selfies with me and stays my tiny bff forever 💙
They can get pretty creative with their stalling techniques! 😂
The largest purple shell finding at our beach! Her watch is evidence that I’m a sucker for “past-bedtime” summer activities- especially in late summer. Last night we didn’t leave the fair (see previous post) until after 8:30, which is usually lights out⭐️
There’s dinner waiting at home, but a beautiful setting sun, soothing waves & busy kids are making it hard to leave tonight too🌞
Are you soaking up summer, too? Or ready for Fall?
Playing in the yard at my sister's for my niece's 5th birthday. The boys love playing in any and all types of water. Today, my sister had a new, inflatable pirate pool, complete with a cannon that shot water. The canon was everyone's favorite part, even PawPaw.
