So happy that we decided to switch our rooms around! Now mama gets to be near the Little’s while I work! Working on lots of orders today! 📦📬
💜WORLD PREMATURITY DAY💜
So incredibly proud of our little premmie warrior Hudson.
Born at 31 weeks and weighing just 1524 grams, he handled 37 days in NICU and Special Care like a rockstar, coming off CPAP in just 4 days, overcoming hospital transfers, isolation and countless hurdles, before finally coming home, and he has been thriving ever since.
We will be forever grateful for the incredible care he (and we!) received in those first few weeks, and in the two years since, that gave him such a good start despite the challenging circumstances of his birth.
Without doubt one of the scariest and most challenging experiences of my life, and the impact of that is ongoing, but my beautiful, brave little boy has showed us all how it’s done...overcoming every obstacle, and flashing that gorgeous smile of his at every opportunity. Words cannot express how much he has taught me through this journey.
💜Hudson William, we love you with all our hearts and are so proud of you.💜

Had a lot of fun with this whale! Made the above design, and then turned it into a pattern as well, cause why not? Thanks again @lizkohlerbrown
for teaching me repeating pattern skills in your @skillshare
You CAN do BIG things!!!! It’s true!!! God wants to do something great in you. It’s okay to want more in life. Not in a “I’m not content with what I have” kinda way. But more like “I know God has more for me” kinda way. 💜
Most times the thing that stops us from doing those big things....is us and the lies we tell ourselves👉🏻those self-sabotaging, limiting belief type of lies.
I’m so guilty of this!! I was just talking to my husband about a lie floating around in my head that I know is just that...a self-limiting belief. 🤦🏼♀️ Like SNAP OUT OF IT!!! “We can not let the voices of negativity keep us from going where God is taking us. ~Steven Furtick
If you have one of those lies floating around in your head today that you are listening too, switch those thoughts right around and tell yourself the opposite. 💥Let’s start talking positively to ourselves and tell ourselves that we are capable of doing BIG things for the kingdom and that God wants to do great things through us.
Happy Friday!!💕#stevenfurtick #positivenergy #mombosslife #naptimehustle #positivemindpositivelife #givegodtheglory #nonegativity #bigdream #hustleandgrind #forthekingdom #inspoquote #motivationalthoughts #youcandohardthings
Ever find a space in your house that just makes you SO happy?
For me, that’s this space right here in my kitchen!
Fun fact: I used to avoid my kitchen up until about 3 weeks ago.
It needed a face lift.
It was cluttered.
We recently built a breakfast bar and painted all the cupboards! We still have a few finishing touches to make, but I seriously can’t get enough of it!
I have an office space in our bedroom, but for the past week my #naptimehustle
Has been taking place here - - Christmas tunes and all!
I feel so thankful that our #tinyhouse
is coming together just perfectly, that I can work from all over the world AND my favorite place, my home!
What is your favorite room in the house?
When nap time rolls around, you can find me here with a cup of coffee and my laptop. 😍 Is TpT your #naptimehustle
, too? If you’re a SAHM who has a TpT store, @sweetforkindergarten
and I would love for you to join our Facebook group! We have a fabulous group of mommas who are working hard to balance the WAHM life! You can read more using the link in my profile! https://bit.ly/2QJRkNr
Look at this little hand reaching out. Every time I start knitting she reaches out and pats the yarn and says “so soft mama.” As we edge into Small Business Saturday and the whole Christmas and holiday shopping season this is what shopping small means. It means supporting a mom with three little girls. It means showing three little girls that if you work hard you can turn your dreams into reality. If you can this year, try and do some of your shopping from a small or local business. I promise it means more than you know. And in my case, every purchase from my shop results in lots of hugs and celebrations for me and this little girl and her sisters, so thank you.
Baby nap time means Papa nerd time. The local geology in Zihua is complex and fun to discover. Volcanics, metamorphics, sediments, fossils, and hydrocarbons, and coastal erosion making much of it accesible. A lot of it is either unresearched or unpublished. Many of the terranes/formations have dissenting opinions and names #nerd #geology #research #naptimehustle #guerrero #costagrande #zihuatanejo
Cheers to the hustlers, the big dreamers, the ones who push past the doubters! The mamas who show up everyday and work hard at nap time from their kitchen table. In the mom cracks in their day. They're up before the rest and stay up late putting one foot in front of the other. Build that dream mama! I see you working for it! When it gets hard- push past the hard. When you have doubts- push through the doubts. Everything we want is on the other side of fear. That's where the freaking fairy dust magic happens!!!!! #busymomlife #busymomsbuildabusiness #hustle #naptimehustle #dreamsdontworkunlessyoudo #keepshowingup #likesheownstheplace

Oil Spotlight: Stress Away - the Vacation in a Bottle
Stress Away was the second oil in the kit that I fell head over heels for, and it was the oil (alongside Peppermint) that convinced my husband that oils weren’t just some crazy new age witchcraft 😜
Opening a bottle of Stress Away is like stepping onto the shores of the Caribbean. It’s scent is subtle, vanilla, a little limey to me, but definitely carries all the power to help relax and de-stress. Truly, the perfect vacation.
Stress Away was also the first oil I ever popped a roller on top of (the one that comes in the kit), and just applied liberally directly from the bottle!
It’s scent is one of my forever favorites, and, regardless of the day, almost always ends up in at least one of our diffusers, at some point. If you’re on the fence about any of the other oils, I promise you: a kit is worth it for the Lavender, diffuser, and Stress Away alone. But you really will fall in love with everything else love ❤️ •••••
- Apply to temples and neck to relieve tension and stress.
- Place a drop in your hands and cup palms, breathe deeply (or inhale directly from bottle!).
- Diffuse with Peppermint for my favorite daily blend ever!
- Pop a roller on top and roll on wrists, neck, temple liberally.
Your grind is precious, keep working, don't give up. Your success is on it's way.
The universe loves a spirit that doesn't give up. As long as you're putting in work, you'll win!
Lazy afternoons at home are one of the best parts about running your own business. I am by no means saying it’s easy and that there is time to laze around on the couch all day but working from home allows me the freedom to choose my own hours, work like a crazy person when I need to then to pause and take a few days off to focus on my family. To spend time with my parents, to get to know my nieces and to cuddle Jack on the couch after getting three needles. I am grateful for a little bit of calm between the chaos to soak up moments like these.

You know, I wish I could take you out for a coffee or a smoothie and we could just talk...
You see, we might be mothers but we still need that motherly support ourselves.
Hands up of you feel me?
I’ve experienced the sting of women that don’t support one another. There’s no need for that.
I’ve experienced and continue to experience the #NapTimeHustle
I know the burning sensation of eyes that have woken 5, 6, 10 times a night to crying babies, for years on end.
I have had the depleted body from cluster feeding and the dreaded mastitis from not being able to feed my baby or pump when returning to work in a “real job”.
I understand just how many brain calories you’re using to switch hats as you go from wiping a butt 💩 to creating valuable content for your growing community.
I know what it’s like to choose between marketing vs creating a product that will put food on the table and also making time to learn!
I know how you want to build your beautiful business without losing your life and your sanity!
These are all reasons WHY I do what I do here at Mums With Hustle and it’s why I created The Social Method Society.
Business doesn’t have to be hard and you can find the support you’re secretly praying for.

Thankful for this little corner where I get to do what I love every day! I created a brand new lab today that I just think will help students so much with an often misunderstood topic - and I had so much fun doing it! I’m so grateful to still be connected to the classroom via other teachers and their students during this season of life! What are some topics your students really struggle with? I love creating resources for those hard topics. Let me know!!
The Christmas rush has begun, and luckily this guy has the next month off to help out thanks to some saved up paternity leave. Our current cut-off for Christmas orders is Dec. 11th, but get your orders in ASAP because I can't guarantee we'll make it that far without shutting down!
Super dainty everyday bracelets are now available!
I’m not even a bracelet person but I LOVE these! I can fit up to three letters, two letters and a heart or just a sweet little heart! •
They have an adjustable clasp for all wrist sizes!

“Commitment means staying LOYAL to what you said you were going to do long after the MOOD you said it in has left you.”
Y’all, I do not always feel like working out. Most of the time I’d rather stay in my flannel jammies and fuzzy slippers and spend the morning sipping on coffee.
BUT, I made a commitment to myself and to God, to take care of this body that He gave to me as a gift.
Are you treating your body as if it’s a GIFT? It takes a lot of discipline and grace but it is so worth it.
I decided to open up 2 more spots, so this is your FINAL chance to join my November bootcamp, which officially kicks off Monday! DM me to claim your spot!
Let’s do this together! Where are my #noexcusenovember
Hey! I’ve been hiding for a minute trying to catch up on a little bit of sleep! But that’s over now 😂😂 time to get back on the hustle!! I’m restocking a few favorites from the last show to bring to the next one!! Woot! More details of to come for that show which I’m super excited about by the way! Just ordered some wood! Thank goodness for delivery! 😜 and made myself a cut list. Excited for nap time to get cracking again! Also I know I keep saying it but... still planning on those felt trees!! Soon i promise!!
Thursday. Both my kids are sleeping, so I’m celebrating with a giant ass bowl of top ramen while I try to get my holiday projects planned out. I’m loving the new dashboard layout for the @the_happy_planner
, it’s changed my life. Also debating if a 3rd cup of coffee is necessary.
And sometimes he actually smiles when we say cheese. 😍😍 Took Gray to Sky Zone for the first time this morning for toddler time. And he loved it.
And I love that I’m able to take him to experience different things instead of me being stuck at a job. It’s the time freedom that I love the most. ❤️❤️❤️.
Still time to join our new coach mentorship that starts on Monday. Msg me for deets to sign up! #workfromhomemom #ownboss #naptimehustle #skyzonefun #joinus #toddlerboymom
Yes. It is true. Some of the Apiary team is in sunny Florida enjoying Disney World. Others are snowed in, with two little kids, trying to do the holiday rush hustle. Today I made a big push with some #harrypotter
book snowflakes. They need embellishing - but that’s the fun part (and after the kids go to bed, glitter is too much of a liability with tiny hands). Tomorrow is #janeasuten
day! Book lovers - what are some titles you would love to see?
What they tell you when you become a coach is “you can do it from anywhere #naptimehustle #inthecar
, you’ll make an income for your family #yasssdirectdeposit
&& it will hold you accountable #mygirlscheckonmedaily
All of these things are true AF - hello fresh hair cut thank you pay day!
But what they don’t tell you is how fucking amazing it is to get messages from your girls tell you they reached their goal.
They don’t tell you how over the moon you feel when you have a call with someone who’s so down on themselves and end the call in a completely different mindset.
They don’t tell you that you’ll cry just about every time you get a “I wouldn’t be where I am now with out you” message.
They don’t tell you you will legitimately learn what living your best life feels like.
I thank the universe every day that my coach crossed paths with me && I strive every day to be that light in someone else’s life. Because I never know if your struggling BUT I am here to help with open arms and love if you are 💕
I’ve previously posted about the 4 month sleep ‘regression’ (even though it isn’t a regression at all). But, I haven’t spoken much about the others.
In order to come out the other side of the 4 month ‘regression’, you will need to make some changes as your child’s sleep is maturing- which is a good thing! However, the 8-10 and 15-18 month regressions happen for other reasons. These regression happen at the same time as nap transitions. Coincidence? I think not!
The 8-10 month regression:
This is the age when babies will transition to 2 naps, and with any nap transition, there are bound to be night wakings and early mornings. This is happening because the child is tired as they have now lost that 3rd chunk of sleep.
When your child is going through this nap transition, it is very important to move bedtime earlier as it’s the only time your child can make up for that lost sleep. If your child was a good sleeper prior to this age, don’t make any big changes to their sleep during this phase and push through- the early bedtime will help immensely!
There is so much going on in baby’s life at this point- crawling, pulling up on things, cruising, teething etc. When a baby learns a new skill, it’s often hard for them to turn off ‘learning time’ and they my wake to practice when they should be sleeping. Again, don’t make any changes and push through!
The 15-18 month regression:
This ‘regression’ also coincides with the 2-1 nap transition. Again, making sure your child’s bedtime compensates this loss of sleep from the day will help with this regression.
Which regression did you find to be the hardest?
