It’s beginning to look, and feel a lot like Christmas at my house. So happy the holiday season is here, we got to go see Santa, and I can get to wrapping presents. Now the only thing missing is hot chocolate ☕️
Hello, Instagram. My name is Andrea and I am a chronic dieter. For as long as I can remember I have been on a “weight loss journey” and have failed time after time after time and hated myself in the process. In the early 2000’s I had enough and joined the Y and started watching what I ate. Fast forward a year later and I went from a size 20 to a size 8. I was on top of the world and my confidence was through the roof. That feeling was short lived, though, because exercising incessantly became my hobby. I finally got my head on straight and made a good balance of exercising and eating right and maintained at a size 10, until I got pregnant. Here I am today, in a size 14, working out 6 days a week and still eating like shit. Why??? I have no idea, but I can tell you that it’s a process trying to get your mind right, when it comes to food. The difference this time? I refuse to have hateful feelings towards myself while I figure my nutrition out. If you’re on the same journey as me, enjoy your process and love your body for what it’s able to do now and where it will get you. And if you fail, pick yourself up and try again. Consistently is the key to success! #selflove #selfworth #weightlossjourney #healthjourney #stickingwithit #momlife #stlmom #stlmoms #tripletmom

I got to meet some many new families this year, including this one! ❤️❤️ I love the way everyone is looking at mom! 😍
Now that I’m totally buckling down and crossing things off that gift list, I’m definitely ordering another @playosmo
game for Jude! He LOVES the tangrams that came in the Genius Kit and we’ve been working on our letters together every afternoon! Shhhh don’t tell, but I’ve been playing the numbers game after he goes to bed #accountantatheart
🤓 Which @playosmo
game is your favorite so I know to add it to his wish list! And just so you know, they now have kits that work with Amazon Fire Tablets!! [ad] #Osmonaut #DearSantaLoveOsmo #OsmoSocialClub #PlayOsmo #TheMagicOfOsmo
This fall session has been amazing! I’m so grateful for all my clients, I’m not sure how I got so lucky!
This quote speaks so strongly to me, as I’m sure it does for a lot of others too.
Let’s rewind a little...well like 4 years ago. Do you want to know the #1
thing that helped me get more present as I was going through...well life?
VOLUNTEERING. I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to volunteer at @cornerstonecenterstl
where the teachers and directors make learning come alive.
Sometimes we need to stop worrying so much about our lives and what is wrong and channel it in a different way.
My sweet spot for this is volunteering. When I am volunteering in the schools, I am fulfilling my passion and making a difference at the same time. What’s your sweet spot?
What’s in your vision?
One of our contributers in the group says, “I never understood what it meant to be present until a year ago. What will you do tomorrow to be present?” Are you struggling?
Life can go by so fast, so it’s important we removed to stop and embrace all the changes in our lives.
If you haven’t had a chance to watch @traumatohopestory
in our group, head on over to our link in our profile.⠀
This beautiful client had a customized facial including extractions with Shanell. ☺️
Shanell is a phenomenal esthetician and I’m proud to say she’s a member of the team! Our signature studio GLOW for the win!
Did you know? We offer gift cards in custom increments and they make for the perfect gift for friends and family! This holiday season, give the gift of comfy style 💙 Buy one in-store or grab one online – link in bio!
How much Christmas shopping have you done? Confession, I’ve bought approximately zero gifts. 😳😬 I’ve been busy helping @btrotz
in his shop and other things I just kept putting it off, but I think this is the week I need to make it happen! Are you done with gifts or still have more to go?? 🎄#rotzbrothers #eckerts
Good Morning Two Maids Family,
We hope you have a wonderful day and get to enjoy the things that matter most to you. || #twomaidschesterfield
All our love,
Carly, Jordan and The Team
As Hanukkah comes to an end, I just wanted to share some gratitude. I am so blessed for this little guy.
His energy, laughter, smile and goofiness adds so much joy to my world.
Cameron, Love bug you can kiss mommy with your Hanukkah loving spirit all you want.
Love you buddy, more then you’ll ever know.
Stop by Mix & Match today from 11-6 and pick up holiday gifts for friends and family 🎁
We have a little something for everyone: from these versatile vests, to sweaters and scarves! See you soon 💙
Can you truly say that you love yourself? It took me years.
Years to stand up to individuals.
Years to believe in myself.
Years to be present.
Years to be grateful.
Years to be fun.
Years to understand the deeper meaning of why we are all here.
I’m grateful for all of those years, all of those heartbreaks, all of those challenges, as it’s made me who I am today. It made me give you a gift; Empowerment. Because of my story, I’m able to help empower you.
What do you do for yourself to love yourself just a little more each day?
Just love it when my little guy runs over for a random snug like this. This kid is full of emotion! He is the most dramatically expressive of all my kiddos. That means that we have a lot of run ins over tempers, whining, over reacting etc. so when he leans in for a sweet snuggle, I soak it in deeply! Love you little LJ!

SNOW MUCH FUN! ⛄️ Jude and I were busy in the kitchen today with the @foodstirs
Frosty’s Frozen Friends baking kit!! These seasonal kits are always SO much fun and Jude has a blast baking and eating them! Don’t worry we shared with E when he woke up from his naked nap. Yes I said naked nap and no I don’t want to talk about it. 😂 Thanks for always sending the best boxes @foodstirs

What a waste it would be to get to the destination to realize that the things you needed most to be fulfilled were already within you from the beginning. Spending years of saying I’ll be so happy when “xyz” happens takes away the joy you could be experiencing today! One day I wrote down my goals, then wrote why I want those goals, then wrote down how it would make me feel to have them accomplished. It all came down to me being HAPPY, SECURE and FREE then I realized that I don’t have to feel unsure, anxious, or unhappy just because it hasn’t happened YET! So now I focus on doing things that make me feel how I should be regardless of where I am in my journey!
