Royal style πŸ”₯

It's #friyay so I was feeling a #popofcolor - this #coral #lipsheer is just what I needed. What's your favorite shade ?! πŸ’„

Can anyone relate to this? Some days the idea hits me and I'm like "no sweat, I'm in" and other days the idea comes I have this really sad internal dialogue wherein I say things to myself that I wouldn't say to another human being alive. What is up with that? I had an idea on Monday and I talked myself down for 15 minutes in the car before I realized I was even thinking.
The internal dialog went something like, "nobody will like that, you and your business are a joke, you'll never pull that off, you don't have enough of a name in your industry, you are actually terrible so just no."
Have you ever experienced that kind of self-defeating thinking? Sometimes I can use it as a warning to check my idea for some reality but on Monday I actually believed every word I was saying to myself.
I had to physically force myself to take action steps on the idea despite my fear and shame yelling at me. And you know what? It turned out my fear and shame lies a lot. Maybe yours does too.
Today, as you move through your work day, listen to your internal voice and push through the voice of fear. Let your voice shake and say it anyway. Let your palms sweat and write that email. Just do it scared. It's the only way to actually grow. The easy stuff everyone does. Be better. Be brave. .

Yo... I'm all about that #FlexibleDieting ... so I don't flexibly lose my mind in this little thing called life... & mommy-in... Skinny Caramel Macchiato??? I makes it fit πŸ™πŸ»
But for real, I'm following flexible dieting, so I have my goals lined up with my macros... I eat within my daily goals! I make healthy choices & choices I ENJOY! While staying ON TRACK! #Balance

The very best part of this "job" I have... (I don't know if I'll ever be able to consider it a job) is the fact that I get to work from anywhere. πŸ’» πŸ“·

Today my office is poolside while my little ones swim (yes I made sure to watch them carefully as well)πŸ˜‰. I was able to get my work done now so I can watch my oldest play baseball later! πŸ’™βšΎοΈπŸ’™ Not having to choose and having the flexibility of time is such a blessing for this mama who has the heart of a #SAHM but the drive to also push myself and hopefully inspire others!

"I haven't gone on a date in eight months." "You take your baby everywhere? Yeah, I don't do that." "I can't have nice things anymore."
In the last year I've heard each of these statements emerge from the mouth of another young mom, most with only one child. And it breaks my heart. It breaks my heart because they are missing out on so. much. joy.
Our culture says motherhood is a season where the world stops and centers on your child. But not only is that damaging to your child, it is damaging to your marriage, to your friendships, and to YOU.
When women say these phrases it shows they're believing a lie: the lie that good moms live for their kids. That good moms have to drop everything each time their child has an impulse or demand. That husbands come second, friends come third, and self comes last, if anywhere. The end result is the social media motherhood our single girls are so afraid of - where the resentment and unhappiness seeps out of the heart and onto the keyboard and across the screens of people who could care less what these moms are going through. And so the cycle continues.
But spilling an aching soul onto Facebook is not the solution. To love motherhood, we have to reframe how we view it - and that starts by understanding that our children are NOT the center of our universe. Jesus Christ is. When you stop living for your children and start living Jesus in front of them, you're free to schedule a date night with no guilt - because your marriage is teaching them love. You're free to do the good work of bringing them with you out to coffee or shopping or on "baby dates", as I call them, because "hard" is not "bad". And you're free to make your home beautiful, to host parties, to entertain and beautify and create because God Himself is a Creator.
I beautify my house, my self, my marriage not because of societal pressure to look a certain way, but because it is my absolute JOY - and I want my daughter to see that life didn't stop for her, she joined a life already being lived. And through it, she'll know how to go out and build a life of her own. Joy upon joy. Grace upon grace. I love this motherhood. You can too.

Hi, y'all. I'm a first-time participant in #fridayintroductions so bear (or is bare?) with me. I've seen some newer (to me) people joining in on my life of parenting and I thought I should probably throw an introduction in the mix. ~
I'm Sarah. My husband and I met in the second grade and spent a decade as friends and almost another decade together. We have 2 kids (3yo son and 2yo daughter) and live in a suburb outside of Minneapolis. During the day, I stay at home with my kids and I rock the #naptimehustle for my business as a fundraising auctioneer (more at @sarahtheauctioneer if you are curious what the heck that means). Basically I get to throw on a gown, heels and a set of false lashes every Friday and Saturday during gala season and help people spend their money so other people can have access to clean water or a safe place to go when they are abused. Think Robin Hood with a gavel and heels. JK, I don't use a gavel.
I rarely post pictures of myself because I am painfully awkward in almost every picture (exhibit A). Like what the hell do you do with your hands? Dear lifestyle bloggers, I respect your work and admire your ability to look effortlessly cool and collected in all your images. I am a mom, so I'm usually behind the camera instead of in front of it, which I know I will regret one day, but until random strangers at the park start asking if they can photograph me with my children, it will probably stay that way. ~
On this account, I write about life and parenting. I also have a blog (link in bio), where I write longer form posts. Some helpful. Others snarky. I believe parenting has been made much harder than it has to be and I hope to connect with some of you on our similar struggles and joys in parenting. ~
My end goal is to encourage other moms by making them laugh and helping them feel less alone. So many of the struggles of motherhood are universal, but at the same time they aren't discussed which can feel isolating. Us mama's have to have each other's backs. I hope we can get to know each other better and encourage one another.
TELL ME ABOUT YOU: I want to know EVERYTHING! Your job, how you met your hubby, kids, passions, hobbies, etc!

6 days away from my 27th birthday (que: omg you're such a baby! πŸ™„πŸ˜‚πŸ‘ŒπŸ»).
But honestly, I've never felt healthier and happier in my whole life! β™₯️πŸ”₯πŸ™ŒπŸ»
Take care of your body, and your body will take care of you 😘
So bring on 27! πŸŽ‰ I have a feeling it's going to be an amazing year for me πŸ’πŸΌ

These sunset shoots are my FAVORITE. πŸŒ… when you're planning your session with your photographer, the time of day is SO important to the vibes of the shoot. Do you like golden warm flares? Or bright and airy light? This is an important part of the planning process! 😍 What vibes do you imagine in your dream family photo shoot?!

When your mom comes up to babysit because you have jury duty the next day... then you find out you don't have to go to jury duty so you take advantage of your mami and get a date night with hubby... where you end up reuniting with the amazing Alisa and her husband from @alisashouseofsalsa πŸ˜†β€οΈ!!! This was so much more than reuniting with a friend... it was about 12 years ago that hubby and I met at her salsa dance class and performed on her salsa dance team... it is where our love story started πŸ’ƒπŸ»β€οΈπŸ•Ί!!! Needless to say it was a great date night 😁❀️!!!

A rare sighting of Birdie in her bow headband. It's kind of shocking how fast children go from newborns to toddlers. Although I'm sad to have lost my little bow model that didn't crawl away, I wouldn't trade my tiny toddler for the world! (And pretty jazzed with this photo considering she sat still for two seconds!πŸ˜‚) Link in bio, check out these cozy and very soft headwraps... tons of new stock that I'm just sooo totally jazzed about! ✨✨✨ #toddlerhood #toddlerhoodbegins #momsofinstagram #shoplocal #wahm #babiesofinstagram #bunnyandmoose #birdielemon
