When you have the coziest sweatshirt dress (with pockets!!) the rain doesn't seem that bad after all. β˜”οΈπŸŒˆ #AlwaysABrightSide #rainydaystyle #jupestyle #springshowers

Today I was thinking about how one day she will be a big kid & she'll wanna be with her friends instead of hanging with me & it made me extra excited that she would rather be in my arms than in the stroller. I'm getting ripped arms AND more time with my girl. #alwaysabrightside πŸ’ͺ🏼

Look what I found while mowing weeds behind the store. 😍🌼

I paid more for the ambiance than for the quality of the food. Sad but true. Nice pic tho. #alwaysabrightside

Convalescing......... only I would sprain both ankles the day before leaving for vacation! #alwaysabrightside wheelchairs, not having to walk through the airport.... first on the plane and getting to be in Hawaii. #itsallgood

When you cancel your party but 2 friends are still coming over...... 1 bottle for each of us. #winning #alwaysabrightside #vino

Oh I love reaching into my bag at the bank and coming out with lotion all over my hand 😏Apparently the lid came off of my lotion 😱 O Well it forced into a much needed bag clean out!! #everydayplexus #alwaysabrightside

Well I don't know about you, but I can only lay in bed, watch Netflix, and read books for so long before I lose my mind. My body is still sore and fatigued and definitely not ready to jump into anything physical so I thought I'd finally give macrame a try. I bought the supplies to make my own stone necklaces a few weeks ago, but just hadn't made the time to sit down and learn. Not too shabby for my first go around. Redid my citrine necklace since the original string broke last week (from wearing it so much of course) and then made this blue kyanite one also. It was fun to try something totally new and get creative. Thank you Universe for giving me a reason to finally put my creative juices into something I've wanted to try for a while now. πŸ’™πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ™πŸΌ β€’

It is hard and it is tiring but it is worth it! If you want to see the results and the progress you HAVE to put in the work!

Saw this today and couldn't help myself 😊#nurse #alwaysabrightside #silverlining

Did we mention the new place is lakeside?! Ha, don't we wish! Over 2 feet of water in the new backyard from this rainy summer
πŸ™„Spent the night running a plumbing snake through a drainage line to find the problem spot. Kiddos are loving the waterveiw and fishing hole, why not turn lemons to lemonade πŸ‹ #doityourself #swimhole #flood #eek #alwaysabrightside

Prawn Red Thai Curry for one. Sure it would be nice to have someone to share my cooking with but at least I have enough for seconds. #alwaysabrightside #dinnerforone #allbymyself πŸ˜‚πŸ€£

At least it was all fluids no solids. 😬 #alwaysabrightside #screamedmyheadoff #gross #momlife #momofboys #isittooearlyforwine

Ever have one of those days?! You know you start your day on a positive note; your workout is done, you've fueled your body with wholesome dense super food nutrition, listened to some inspirational words, you're ready to fucking rock this day. Then you have the bright idea to get out in nature with your children before the rain comes. BUT, and I empathize the but, you forgot their not babies anymore and they legit hate your guts for no reason other than breathing?!! Yeah that happened today.
We forced our children to get outside and move their bodies and they hated our guts for it. The older two let us know it every second we were out there, whining, complaining, and even at one point wished we were dead. Yeah... Well I had it, I broke down and actually started to cry. A lot of things crept up for me...the fact that I worked myself to death when they were younger and never got the quality time I wanted with them when they actually liked us and most of all that when they would've been up to hanging out with us and doing this fun stuff I was too heavy and created a million excuses to NOT go 😭
But in all the chaos and kid drama this guy came through as he always does, my hero! He grabbed my hand & said let's just make a run for it. So here we are running away from our kids who are sometimes assholes but we love them anyway!
I mean at some point they have to grow out of this phase right?! 😬 And at least we got some exercise πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ˜‚ #alwaysabrightside
