THREE YEARS WITH THIS ONE ❤️
Coffee kind of day for everyone ☔
If I can help a mama have energy to get up and play with her babies ... If I can help someone learn to love not just their body but their whole self... If I can help a mama feel less stressed and have less outbursts due to unbalanced hormones... If I can help a friend make better food choices they WANT to make.. If I can help a friend finally get the lab results they’ve wanted... If I can help someone start to see those fitness goals FINALLY and watch that confidence reach new levels.. If I can help someone not stress about car payment, mortgage, utilities... It fills my heart to help with all of these things. I have the ability to bless a few more of you with FREE wholesale pricing! 💕
Went to my first basketball game of the season hoping to get free fries; not only did we not get free fries but we also lost at the very last second 🤬 moral of the story i am no longer going to anymore games
My awkward selfie of the day! 😂 Seriously the other two pictures steal the show!! Our little outdoor adventure today was so relaxing.
This little guy loves to be in nature and throwing rocks in any body of water.
It's the simple things in life that mean the most!! I love being this little boy's Lee Lee! ❤❤ What is your favorite thing to do outdoors? ~

How is it less than two weeks until we are celebrating a first birthday? AP has big plans for her party and has loved helping me prep. It’s been so fun incorporating @beechnutfoods
! It’s made with real fruits and vegetables, just like you would use at home. Which means our babes love it and mama approves! #ad #realfoodforbabies #beechnutpartner #mommyparties
After nearly a year of living here and we keep finding these magic little spots 💦 well Sunday you were something awesome ✨
And so ends a weekend. I even took a personal day on Friday to have a fun long weekend in the warmer Spring weather, and ended up sick at home for it (minus crawling out for a haircut). Ain't that just the way? 😂 On the bright side, I did finish filing my taxes today!
In a way, I feel like someone is trying to tell me something, because I’ve noticed a common theme in the conversations I’ve had with close friends lately...the basis being—how in the world are we supposed to manage all the stress that life seems to be posing lately?
See, people always talk about having perspective...but I often feel it’s the scope of perspective that matters. I’ve realized, that our perspective doesn’t necessarily mean focusing on the whole—as for many of us...this can feel extremely overwhelming. Instead, it may be honing in on the littlest of things in front of us, instead of stepping back to view the “big” picture.
We all have a different story, with a different premise & unique specifics. Yet, we’re all still climbing the SAME mountain...not only trying to achieve a life of balance, but to find contentment✨ in the process.
I personally have had a grip of change in the last year—some very positive, & some unforeseen & insanely challenging. I also currently lead a much slower-paced life, which can bring on a different set of stresses, & also puts me in a position where I’m alone with my thoughts almost constantly. It’s that buzzing in my brain that I so often fight to control, yet sometimes the volume seems unbearably loud.
This is me—so tired, but smiling—with my youngest rescue, as we took both her & my senior down the street for coffee early this morning. THIS☝🏻...is what perspective looks like for me. It’s fixating on the smallest of joys, the quality time I am so fortunate to have with my family, even if it’s a mere 30-min coffee date. I used to take these times with a grain of salt...but if I’ve learned anything in the last year, it’s that THESE small blips on the map are exactly what we strive for. They’re in front of us so often—literally staring at us in the face—and it’s up to us to be present enough to recognize these gifts. This...right here, is contentment. 🙏🏻✨💋xx #thegiftofgoods
No fuss outfits are a | MUST HAVE | in my opinion. — Overalls & jumpers are the answer to every busy lady’s prayers.〈this lovely still has two mediums up for grabs, will a pair be yours?〉
Extra for Spring? I think so.
Miss M was so eager to help in the garden today. We planted tomatoes, peppers, lettuce, and flowers for cutting, just in time before the tornado sirens went off. It’s spring time in Texas! Luckily we only ended up with a little rain—perfect timing for my garden!
love me some sunshine.. ☀️
Happy Sunday, y’all! 🌸 I cannot believe how fast March has gone by. I am going to be 22 in 2 days! My birthday doesn’t feel so special this year because Connor isn’t here to celebrate it with me. I’ve linked my entire outfit and this dress is only $25 and super stretchy! http://liketk.it/2AH6p #liketkit @liketoknow.it

19 weeks going on 30 😆 totally kidding, but the “are you sure you aren’t having twins??” questions haven’t stopped yet soooo. I really have had the easiest, most laid-back pregnancy so far, and I’m grateful. I haven’t talked much about it, (because who really wants to hear about how much of a breeze it’s been 😂?) But the rest of our life lately hasn’t been easy and has definitely not been a breeze. The grace and favor that has been on this pregnancy and this sweet baby’s life has nothing to do with me, but all with Him. But lately I’ve let fear creep in, lies saying that it isn’t perfectly good and there is no such thing is easy and there simply has to be something wrong. I worry that we’ll go to our next appointment and they’ll say, “We’re sorry, but...” and it scares the hell out of me. Because the truth is, I’m very much not in control of this entire process. Yet another very real human life is depending on me 100% right now. But you know what is also the truth? That my Jesus is in control. He knew this little bean before I ever thought about them. He’ll know every single hair on that sweet head and He knows that this child, with grace and favor on their life, will be just. fine. So, I trust. I trust that He knows and He always has. From before conception to labor to all the years that follow. I may be giving life, but He is the ultimate Giver of Life. I’m just a receiver, His very own child, and I’m learning to be just that. Even as I learn to be a mama too. 🌿 #sundaysappiness
Sweet baby essentials. I don’t want to pack all these sweet goodies away! Until we meet again in about 60 days...
DADDY || I love him the most when he’s holding our children.
Nothing puts a smile on my face quite like watching the man I love playing with our beautiful boys.
What takes up space, takes up time, which is fine as long as we’re cool with that.
It’s our time. So are we cool with that?
Cheers to another week, friends.

So excited to welcome another sweet boy into our family, cousins are built in best friends!
Channeling my inner zen before cracking open the nursing books!! 👩🏼⚕️💉 I feel good that I aced my first mental health exam, but now I need to keep up with everything else! Will it ever calm down? 🤪 I’ve gained a lot from nursing school thus far: always be humble. comparison does nothing for the mind & soul. There’s a thousand different ways to do one thing. We’re all a little bit right and a little bit wrong. You’re going to make mistakes. Multiple choice questions are like defusing bombs. You’ll be ask which orange is the most orange and what word was on the 16789 page of your textbook. You’ll get questions like, “what is a mouse?” and your answer choices will be true or false 😏 (some of my favorite memes) in all serious though, there’s nothing else I’d rather be working for! 💪🏻 (p.s. I really need to make a My Favorite Nursing School Memes blog post!) 🙌🏻 nursing friends: what’s your favorite memes?!! 👇🏼
She wore these Levi's to school and got called a Farm Girl! We are transplants from Southern California. Living on a ranch in the suburbs of Chicago. We love horses and farm animals. The slow pace of the back country roads. Yep this California born girl is proud to be a Farm Girl. She wouldn't have it any other way. She has more heart than those haters ever will. We need to change the bullying amoung young girls. We need to celebrate our unique differences. We need to advocate for those who allow ugly harsh words to sink too deep. Who's with us in this fight?? Our young girls need a sisterhood too.
We ❤️ Disney!!!🌈🧜🏻♀️👳🏾♂️👸🏾🧞♂️🐒
Also... Look at Aladdin pointing at lil bruhs nipple 🤣😭
Almost warm enough for patio brunches 🍽

Repeating the word Sabbath this weekend. Told myself I’m not allowed to do anything work related today and I almost stuck to it. 😅 my phones been alerting me of the time I’ve been spending on it and it’s been a huge eye opener. SO hard when a lot of your job revolves around your email and social media BUT it can be done. Finished and started a new book this weekend and every time I feel like grabbing my phone I grab my book instead! 6 chapters in y’all! 😂🙌🏼
There’s a reason God commands us to take a sabbath, a rest day. It’s for our own good and we desperately need breaks in the chaos that life can be! So here’s to the last few hours of our sabbath. Let’s be present and soak it up. 🤗
I’m so healthy sometimes I put orange juice in my champagne 🥂.
Can we just talk about how beautiful it was outside today. I don’t even care that it was only like 10 degrees but the sun makes me happy (until I get hayfever and hate my life until Autumn obvs 🙃😂)
A family adventure was so needed. The ocean, the sun, my little family- just a perfect afternoon.
And I still am in awe whenever I experience this that all of this is my backyard. Never thought in my life I’d be living by the ocean and I absolutely love it.
