I have been totally absent from social media lately because even scrolling sometimes makes this pregnant mama sick 🤢😩 I did not think it could be worse than the first time around with this chick, but it certainly is. Oh well, I suppose the outcome is worth it. 😉 So here’s an oldie of me eating carbs while my mini gives me a dirty look since this is basically my life everyday now. #givemeallthecarbs
Nothing more difficult and nothing more rewarding. There are days where I am wearing poo on my clothes (and unaware until mid afternoon) with lollipops in my hair and children sitting fully clothed in the bathtub. Yet, my children don’t see my faults they just see me “taking care of them” and it works. For that I’m extremely grateful ❤️ #trendypeasstories
I’m not sure who is loving our new @cinemood_usa
more...her or me!! 🤔 I seriously can’t get over how cool this tiny little projector is! It comes pre-loaded with with 65+ Disney stories & videos + allows you to stream Netflix, YouTube, PrimeTV and so much more ➕ you can even project your own videos and photos...how cool is that!! It’s essentially a tiny little movie theater you can take anywhere!! 🤗 Now I’m just over here planning all the amazing camping trips we’re going to be taking it on this summer ➕ backyard movie nights and so so much more!! ♥️ Showing how to use it and more on why we’re loving it in stories 👆🏻!
💤 It’s sleep time, Emma gets it. Anyone else exhausted?! 🙋🏼♀️ I’ve been trying to be a little more active lately and exercise daily...but instead of feeling energized, I feel more drained 😬 But, it’s all about consistency right?! Working from home now, I find myself spending a lot of my days pretty sedentary. Anyone have anymore tips to staying active and energized?! 💪🏻⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

|| We love going to our local library once a week and borrow books. M is excited to start the summer library program this June. We’re very lucky our community offers this program to the kids. It’s a good habit to start them young. ||
I have loved taking a break from meal planning and prepping and letting @dinnerafare
take over for a bit. They take under thirty minutes and Cove has approved of all the meals so far 🙌🏻 also, this is the sweatshirt I was telling you guys about... so comfy! http://liketk.it/2vQ3U #liketkit @liketoknow.it #LTKfamily #LTKeurope
You can have inner peace. There is no requirement, no income level necessary, no person who can give it you. It is yours for the taking, at any moment or point in your life, but you must choose to slow down, listen and accept it.
This weekend, I had a severe bout of food poisoning, like zero hours of sleep curled on the floor of the bathroom in excruciating agony kind of food poisoning.
The only way that I was able to handle it without heading to the emergency room was to try to transcend and release it. I called upon the breathing of meditation (and pretty much begged out loud) for it to be released.
This got me through the worst of it spirit intact, as peacefully as possible. I made a decision to look at the two day experience that encompassed our entire weekend as an opportunity for growth. What was my body trying to tell me? What was my inner self communicating? What was I learning from it? This gave me a sense of peace. In the past, I probably would have spent it wondering why me or getting frustrated with my body or the contaminated food, but this time I chose to look at it as a learning opportunity that occurred to benefit me in the long run, even if I wasn’t sure how. Giving meaning to these moments changes them.
In each of our lives, what happens is not random. It’s filled with meaning and depth, if we choose to look. What is each of us here on Earth to learn right now?
After the experience mostly subsided, we took our daughter out for a walk to get out of the house & stumbled upon this cart of roses. She laughed as she touched the petals & I smiled. • •

The happiest of birthdays to my mama!!! And yes, we’re gonna need a bigger boat.
Planning our yearly camping trip and couldn’t be more excited. There is just something about sleeping in a tent and being filthy for days that’s so refreshing.
Not down with watching her brother run around while stuck in this darn boot.
and today...in the bath, yet again. Hadley with a fever... and Amelia with little bumps all over. I just found one inside her mouth. anyone dealt with HFM before? do i just let it run its course? should i be worried about catching it?
Vincent is ready for lunch! 🥑 🍐
First blooms. 🌼
So, I was going to post some inspirational scripture or quote but I’m just too tired. Truth is these last few days of school are killing me. I’m busy trying to juggle work and All.The.Things. with the end of school year. And right now, I just feel like curling up into a ball and crying. Anyone else?
So, I’m just take a deep breath, look at this beautiful flower that our Maker created and know that I am in His hands. #mondaymood

Not shown after this pic, Avery and I landed some intense food poisoning which we are still recovering from 😰.
This time of year always 1. Inspires me to create. 2. To buy overpriced fancy drinks. 😂 I held back and decided to make my own. This simple infused tea is TOO good. I'm making popsicles for the kids with it, as well 🍡 .
If you're interested in making yourself one, here ya' go.
Brew green tea of your liking & either chill or cold brew it if you can wait like 8 hours 😳 Once it's cold, blend with ice & sweetner of your choice (honey, agave, stevia or just plain ol' suga' will do) set the blended tea aside. Wash your blender out & blend cucumber (peeled) , blackberries, strawberries, the juice of a lemon & a little sweetener. Pour your berry mixture into your blended iced tea. .
The options for this are endless. You can use any tea, sweetener & fruit you'd like. This is just what I used today. I figure, I spend about $5 on just one for myself. I spent maybe $10 or less on all the ingredients I used and I still have plenty of each left. Not to mention, I made this drink (plus two more in the fridge) and 8 popsicles. When you put it into perspective, I saved quite a bit of money & it tastes so much better. So, if you're like me & love to treat yo'self but need to save money, MAKE IT AT HOME! 💛

At the start of every season, I go through all the kids’ clothes to see what they have outgrown (which is usually about 50% of their wardrobe 😭)and get ready to swap clothes with my sister. Because we swap all of our kids’ clothes, I rely on @Downy
to protect their clothes wash after wash so they can be washed, reworn and handed down - not worn out and thrown out. It helps us save money and prevents clothes from ending up in landfills.

How I’m feeling after the long weekend 😴🇨🇦
I hope all my Canadian friends had a fun, and safe long weekend! We sure did!! My neighbours set of fireworks 2 nights in a row which kept all 3 of my kids up way past their bedtimes - but hey! It was a free show without having to leave the comfort of our own backyard, so I shouldn’t complain! 💥
It was a great weekend, but I’m already counting down the minutes until bedtime. I’m seriously going to need a solid 8 hours tonight 🙋♀️😴
A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.

Just rejoicing that today we celebrate our seventh anniversary! Our marriage has been a wonderful journey. God couldn’t have blessed me any better than with my Jon @fatherwithheart #happyanniversary
That top knot though!!! 😍
Here comes the sun, do do do do.
Baby sink baths are pretty high up there on my list of favorite things. So are both of these girls.
For being so convinced before I had kids that I was meant to be a boy mom, it’s been humbling to find that life with just my girls (for now) couldn’t fit me better.
I guess God knew what He was doing. Go figure, right?
Another rainy day called for a quick trip to Target + Starbucks to get some goods... (I promise not all of those drinks are mine, even though I wish they were 😍)
It's officially time to start baby proofing. I'm a little behind on that! I am constantly finding my nice things in Sebastian's hands! I just saved my @danielwellington
watch from going into his mouth!! I love this watch way too much to let him ruin it! If you are interested in this timepiece you should definitely check it out! I have the Classic Petite with the Ashfield band. You can also use code 15KRISTA to get 15% off of your entire purchase. #danielwellington #ad
Matching shoes for as long as they will allow...
They’re pretty lucky to have each other. And I’m pretty lucky to have them. #daddysgirlforever
the goulart girls are definitely winning the selfie game ✌🏻 [ontem foi sem dúvida uma noite memorável e importante. é quase impossível não relembrar que há um ano atrás tinha um bebé com dias num braço e uma filha ainda tão pequena e a precisar tanto de mim no outro, ambos a chorar. e nesse momento em que podia ter chorado também decidi rir e aceitar o caos 🙌🏻 este ano foi incrível para nós os quatro e para a família hmb também. orgulho e gratidão. ✨✨✨

I hope you find someone who looks at you the way Owen looks at a bag of family sized pretzels 🥨
