Now that I am a Mom, I can see things through the 'Mother-lense'
_
_
_
I haven't been as active on here recently because I have been doing lots of soul searching & reflecting on what my purpose is.
_
I have been feeling a strong push that I need to share more of my story, my childhood & all the moments that 'built me'. This๐Ÿ‘ is๐Ÿ‘Scary๐Ÿ‘ for me.
_
Some of you have thanked me for my vulnerability in past posts but this is different. I don't share a whole lot about my upbringing because I never want anyone to judge my family!! _
_
However, I am going to push myself to do it. WHY?? Because I think there is someone out there who needs to hear it. God blessed me with all of these moments so that I can use them to help others so that is what I will (try) to do โค. I appreciate you all and all of your support; please encourage me to share because I could use the extra push ๐Ÿ˜˜

๐ŸŽ„ Tis' the Season ๐ŸŽ„

We had such a great time looking at the lights at the Thoroughbred neighborhood.
.
What brought me the most JOY is to see so many homes sharing the birth of Jesus in such a beautiful way!! They do NOT get paid to do this. It is NOT a city event they do this to bring joy to families like mine.
.
.
We all loved it! Thank you residents โค

Happy 3 months babyboy ๐Ÿ’™

I love to make smiley faces & have conversations with anyone who talks to me.
_
I still don't like car rides but I am becoming a fan of the ergo.
_
I am wearing mostly 3-6 month clothes.
My big sister is favorite person to look at even though she doesn't play with me much ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ

What seeing this everyday in my home means to me
_
_
_
_
Growing up we didn't always have a Christmas tree, heck we didn't always have presents either. My mom was a single mom raising 5 children. A lot of our gifts came from the hearts of loving strangers through community programs.
_
This tree may not be much. It's not a real tree. It's not decorated super nicely. It's not new. But it is mine โค
_
_
It is my daily reminder to be thankful for my blessings and to ALWAYS help others. I may not have much to give but I will still give.. every day!! #hearttoheart

This was just before I got pregnant with John with one of my favorite 3 week programs. It is a combination of cardio & strength training and only 30 minutes a day. .
.
I have been trying to complete a program this month but honestly have been struggling. I am still trying to adjust to mommy of two life and so fitting in my workouts doesn't always happen.
.
.
But I am practicing grace & learning not to be too hard on myself. My nutrition is much better which I am excited about. I also feel super thankful that I have a fit family who is supporting & encouraging me in our private #holidayhealthchallenge .
.
Do you have health goals?
Is their room to improve your fitness & nutrition?
Would you like extra support & accountability?
.
.
If so we still have a few spots open in our health challenge and right now it is SUPER affordable (the lowest price all YEAR) to get started BUT the sale is only around for 2 more days. Comment below or DM me for more info!

I can't believe this is my life โค
.
.
.
I knew I always wanted to be a mom, but this, THIS is just amazing
.
.
Strong women don't always have to be out in the workforce building a career. They can be staying at home loving & raising their children every day

What a blessing #thanksgiving2018 was for us!
_
_
_
We got to fly out to see ALL of Noah's sibling and so much of his family that we haven't seen in YEARS.
_
Then we got to celebrate at the fire house with him when I thought I would be spending it without him.
_
_
So many amazing gifts. Lots and LOTS to be #thankful๐Ÿ™ for this year.

Travelling is tough. Travelling with kids is even harder!
.
.
.
Feels so good to finally be back home. I loved being able to visit my husband's family & celebrate Thanksgiving but boy, did it take a lot outta me. .
We stuck to our #pottytraining & Lola only had one accident on our flight back home & then in the car as we were parking to rush her inside. But she did tell us BOTH times we just couldn't quite get to the toilet in time. And both kiddos did AMAZZZING on the flights. We even got compliments from other passengers ๐Ÿคฉ
.
.
I will be sharing more from our trip over the next few days since I kinda disconnected while we were on vacay ๐Ÿ˜Š

I have been wanting to enroll my daughter in Gymnastics since she turned 2. It's always been a dream of mine since she is so crazy active!
_
_
_
I am happy to say, that thanks to my online coaching gig I am able to cover her classes no problem.
_
I didn't start coaching for the money. I started because I wanted to get healthier & I loved having a team of support to get me there. But earning an income is just an added bonus ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ’ฐ
_
_
We just paid for the next two months with last weeks pay check!! AHHHH ๐Ÿคฏ๐Ÿ˜
_
If you are looking for a way to earn an income and still be present 100% in your family's life then let's chat ๐Ÿ“ฉ drop your email below without the (.com) and I will send you some info to see if what I do can be what you do too ๐Ÿ˜Š

#throwback๐Ÿ”™ Always looking for a reason to share this photo because it's one of my favs!!!

We made cookies the other day for the first time. She was sooo excited!
_
_
_
I have been trying to let her help me make food as a way to get her interested in trying new things.
_
Not that a toddler needs help to want to eat a cookie ๐Ÿ˜… but other foods. It's worked a few times.
_
_
_
If anyone has other tips on how to get toddlers to eat more variety send em my way!
