Today's the birthday of the funniest, silliest, smartest and the most beautiful friend I know ❀️
As teenagers, we lived one summer together at my grandma's (when she was gone of course) and lived off of mudcake and watching movies after work πŸ˜‚
She was my maid of honor and I got to be her maid of honor for the bridal pics, haha!
Doesn't matter that we live thousands of miles apart. I am soooo happy you happen to be married to my brother and I get to call you my sister 😘

My sweet boy loves the bath! He kicks and wiggles to his hearts content! I just want to kiss his tiny little toes! 😍I'm sharing our BATH TIME FAVORITES on the blog tonight! @tubbytodd

GUYS! I think this is the first time I have ever shared something on Instagram 100% makeup free! Recently Zoey has been saying, "I need to put on my makeup so I look pretty!!" I always tell her she looks pretty no matter what, but apparently actions speak louder. She wants to be just like me, and I wear makeup every time I leave the house. Teaching her confidence is sooo important to me, so I have started going makeup free more often. I want to show her by example that she really is beautiful, no. matter. what. Unfortunately my skin is not as clear as a 3yr olds... Sooooo to lessen my need for makeup I have been using the @AcneFree 24 hour system. AcneFree is the only brand that makes acne clearing systems formulated with Advanced Micro-Benzoyl Peroxide. Micro-sized benzoyl peroxide is designed to work faster and penetrate deeper into pores. The AcneFree 24 Hour Acne Clearing System includes Oil-Free Purifying Cleanser, Renewing Toner and Repair Lotion - three simple steps, twice a day, for clearer skin! Zoey wants to be involved in everything, including my new facial care routine. So I got her a little squeeze bottle from Walmart, which is where I got the AcneFree system as well, and I filled it up with water so she could wash her face with me! She loved it! We have so much fun together and she has been going around the house saying all she needs to be pretty is "just my face! No makeup." Which is soooooo true, I love it. ❀️❀️❀️#AcneFreeSummer #ad

I've been thinking a lot lately about how I really want to help instill a love for reading in Conrad, so if you have any favorite baby books (or really any type of book at all - I need suggestions for myself too πŸ˜‰) send them my way! πŸ“šπŸ’›

New York did not disappoint this year. Beautiful weather. Fun family times at West Gilgo Beach. .
It's seriously nice to not worry about taking time off of work all the time. Is this something you hate doing?! Cause it was definitely me πŸ™‹And then knowing I have the tools to get back on track after a lot of splurging. #black&;whitecookies #pizza #bagels πŸ˜‚πŸ™ŒπŸ» #shiftshop #yogafit

Today is a holiday for us here in Utah. Spending some family time at the splashpad and poor baby took a tumble. But the snuggles are the best πŸ’• #momlife #motivation #macros #momswholift #iifym #girlswholift #utah #ldsmom

We went to a baseball game tonight and had a blast! The Hubs and Sweet Pea left early while Little Man and I stayed a bit longer and then got ice cream! This was our view as we walked to the car. Fire smoke sure isn't fun, but it does make for great sunsets!!

One of my longest childhood friends daughter Kara passed away this last weekend. Please click the Go Fund Me link in my profile and share, donate to the funeral expenses, or simply say a prayer for her sweet family. Thank you friends! πŸ’—

Alright, once again, PLEASE tell me I'm not the only mom out there with a PICKY eater when it comes to eating healthy?? This kid used to eat EVERYTHING under the sun up until about 18 months old. Now just the SIGHT of green veggies and he turns his head πŸ™„
-
Literally the ONLY way I've been able to give this kid veggies is when it's disguised as a "chocolate shake." And the fact that we now have a smoothie specifically designed and tested for kids that are picky eaters, and is filled with veggies and fruits with no artificial crap, certified organic, gluten free, vegan, non GMO....my mama heart is content! Anyone else struggling with picky eaters?

Tried my hand at cauliflower tortillas tonight. .
Not quite like a tortilla, as you cannot fold them or they break. So I ate it open faced with a fork. .
The flavor was really yummy and I'm saving the leftovers for a veggie/protein snack for the next few days!!

This is a little bit heavy but bare with me. This day 7 years ago changed my life for the better. Before it changed, I was in a really bad relationship. I thought I was happy, I kept telling myself things would get better but it never did. I lost appetite and I LOVE to eat, so I knew something was wrong. I didn't know how to get myself out of there. I felt so lonely yet I had tons of people around me. I remember my mom asking me what was wrong and that I had lost tons of weight. I didn't know what she was talking about because I was absolutely fine...Except I wasn't. Until my best friend, future husband pointed it out. Getting myself out of that relationship was the greatest thing ever. I thought I was happy, I had NO idea what happiness was until I met my husband. I know it sounds cheesy, but I'm sharing this in hopes to help someone else that is stuck. Know that you are not alone, you are stronger than you think. Seek help if you need to, it doesn't mean that you are weak and I promise you real happiness is aheadπŸ–€ #selfworth #momofthree #strength

This picture-- not the best. But the amount of excitement behind it NEEDS to be shared!!! .
.

This girl right here lost 20 lbs in the 2 months she's been doing this. She couldn't stop smiling, laughing or contain her excitement in anyway. .
.
Despite the fact that she's been moving, finishing her semester of college, working. .
.
She's been CONSISTENT. With something sustainable. .
.
She just said, "I've never been called the skinny girl.... and My family called me "flaka" which means skinny girl. Hey flaka get over here." πŸ˜πŸ’ƒ
.
.
It might seem like an insignificant gesture but her happiness is undeniable & contagious, and that confidence is radiating. .
.
Isn't that what life should feel like?!

New group starting!! Are you ready to make the shift? πŸ˜‰πŸ’ͺ🏻

Life is too good! If you asked me how my afternoon was, I'd probably have something different to say with some added swear words hahaha Mondays.... You never know what your gunna get! Today I got it all and I'm just happy I'm ending on a #positive note! I was asked in one of my challenge groups (I'm in two right now) to rate my day 1-5. I gave myself a 4, I worked out, had my Shakeology, my #nutrition was 100% (thanks to the new Shift Shop nutrition plan that lays everything out for you!!) 😊 I've been drinking my lemon #water, but I NEED to be better with my #personaldevelopment I'm treating my #physical needs as a priority, but honestly my #spiritual needs need to come first! THAT is what's most #important to me and I'm kinda failing. I had a great #Family night talking about #prayer I know I need to be better at #praying more sincerely and with real intent. We discussed what if our daughter came to us everyday and said the same thing over and over??? It'd be hard to help her with her needs. Even though God knows our needs we must ask and give thanks! He is our Father in heaven and we are His children, He WANTS to hear from us! Praying and/or #meditation is a great way to have more positive vibes and #love in your life!! πŸ˜Šβ˜€οΈ I'm going to make an effort to #meditate and pray more, especially in the #morning so my day is happier and more positive! πŸ’›

How would you rate your Monday?? 1-5? .

β€œTo you who think you are lost or without hope, or who think you have done too much that was too wrong for too long, to every one of you who worry that you are stranded somewhere on the wintry plains of life and have wrecked your handcart in the process, we call out Jehovah's unrelenting refrain, 'My hand is stretched out still'. His mercy endureth forever, and His hand is stretched out still. His is the pure love of Christ, the charity that never faileth, that compassion which endures even when all other strength disappears.” -Jeffrey R. Holland

Just in from Heaven... Another perfect, little, child of God. I'm an Aunty again!β€’

Congratulations to my brother and his beautiful wife on their sweet, precious babe. Oh, my heart! & ovaries! Got me thinking like, I can do one moreπŸ€—πŸ˜§πŸ˜©πŸ˜Œβ€’

I remember what I thought and felt after holding each of my children for the first time...
#1 "Oh my gosh he's here!" So surreal.
#2 "Yes, we did it! There he is." Pure pride.
#3 "I fricken rocked that!" Totally empowered.β€’

How'd you feel when holding your babies for the first time?

Living in Provo for the next 10 days so you better believe we have a foodie checklist going on. I like to think it'll ease my mind and make it more enjoyable living out of a suitcase for the next 5 weeks πŸ˜…πŸ˜…

It's funny how in the moment you feel like your so low in your squat and then you watch the video back and clearly I have some work to do on these! -
Each day I try to think of how I can better myself in my workout. As I was crying in pain today while hopping around outside in 90 degree weather the thought came to me that pain last only a moment but joy will last a lifetime. My goal behind this healthy lifestyle isn't to look like a model....it's to make sure I'm able to live the fullest and longest life possible. -
Don't run away from the burn, run to it!
